** His desire to help a human village ended with him in a position to UTTERLY screw over a fae--[[GoodIsNotNice which he does]] so very EPICALLY. [[spoiler: The fae in question calls a WildHunt on Quentyn, promising a wish if he survives. Quentyn barely manages to win, but it's now when the fae realizes to his horror that Quentyn is not only part of a race that's protected from the Hunt, but also under the protection of another being which doubly prohibits him. As punishment, the amount of wishes that the fae is supposed to give is tripled. The first two wishes are used to deprive him of everything he has. The third wish is a traditional "leave without taking revenge" wish...with an additional clause that forbids him from ever calling a hunt on that plane again.]]

** In season 14, we learn how the Blood Gulch outposts were formed. Project Freelancer were going to use the place to hide the Alpha AI, so Agent Florida purposely assembled the worst soldiers from both the Red and Blue armies to fill the ranks, and even had a computerized personality (Vic) act as Command and keep both sides at a stalemate. Vic even had a roster of other Freelancers to recruit if anything happened to Florida. So what causes a perfectly orchestrated ForeverWar to spiral out of control, and eventually lead to the Project's destruction? Florida tripping over one of Vic's cables. This scrambled Vic's software, not only turning him into an idiot, but also replacing the roster with Caboose and Donut, the two soldiers whose respective Snipe Hunts are the root cause of the Blood Gulch Crew's adventures.

* ''Film/ForrestGump'' calls to complain that he can't sleep because of people playing with flashlights in the next building over and so [[HistoricalInJoke blows the lid on Watergate]].
* In ''Film/TheLadyVanishes'' an oblivious Iris manages to completely destroy a Nazi conspiracy just because she won't give up insisting that the eponymous lady exists.

*** Probably a good example of this is [[https://i.imgur.com/qQ3j7MB.png this story]], where a player who played a BigGood in a CrapsackWorld completely and utterly derailed a cynical GM's world by being IncorruptiblePurePureness: [[spoiler:a game where that had Corruption Points, his character had 0 and upon obtaining a special artifact that would make them a God but skyrocket their Corruption Points by a multiple of 100 to make them the new BigBad. However, 0 times anything is still 0]].

* A conspiracy by Sejanus and Herod Antipas to overthrow High Priest Caiaphas and install Herod as King of Judea, using Jesus of Nazareth as their pawn, ended in failure when Sejanus was brought up on murder and treason charges before the Roman Senate and sentenced to death by the garrote, which resulted in everyone with even a remote connection feeling more vulnerable than ever, setting in motion the events leading up to Jesus's crucifixion. Since omnipotence and omniscience was the shtick of the God the Bible this may have been intentional.
