* ''Film/ConAir'' features the AxCrazy Cyrus the Virus, who plans to take over the Fairchild C-123 plane ''Jailbird'' before it drops him off to a new Supermax prison and has several ''very'' dangerous criminals willing to help him. Too bad that one of the passengers just happens to be a guy on parole named Cameron Poe, an ex-Army Ranger who takes absolutely ''no'' shit from anyone and will do '''anything''' in his power to stop Cyrus and Co. so he can go home to his family.

* Ranma becomes one for not only Minaka and his Sekirei game in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11701126/1/Anything-Goes-Game-Changer Anything Goes Game Changer]]'' but Higa as well, the latter without even being aware of the man's existence. Besides Ranma interfering with unfair battles, mostly preventing Sekirei from being forcibly winged, he and Uzume pose for pictures for Nabiki to raise money (to cover his living expenses). Uzume's cut is enough for her to pay off her Ashikabi's hospital bills, which were being used by Higa to blackmail her.

* 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.

* In ''Film/ExMachina'', Nathan underestimates just how much Kyoko can take in despite her lack of English skill [[spoiler:or, more specifically, despite being an earlier model of artificial intelligence]]. This proves to be his undoing, as [[spoiler:she grew resentful of his treatment and attempts to kill him - while her blow didn't immediately kill him, it gave Ava enough of an opening to finish the job]].

Whether it's TheDitz, TheFool, InspectorOblivious, or a [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys monkey]], this miscreant is capable of derailing the most ironclad [[ThePlan plan]] by unknowingly [[TakeAThirdOption taking a third option]]. They ruin the implausible {{Gambit Roulette}}s by [[FlawExploitation exploiting their one, intrinsic flaw:]] their reliance on {{Contrived Coincidence}}s, [[ClockKing rigid patterns]], and the assumption that nobody would be stupid enough to actually push the BigRedButton or fight the ''apparently'' [[NighInvulnerability unstoppable]] robot.

* Donovan Dijak was most responsible for bringing an end to The House Of Truth's second Wrestling/RingOfHonor run, the very same Dijak Truth Martini took in to prevent him from challenging for Wrestling/JayLethal's television title belt. He was paired with Joey Daddiego and redirected at the TagTeam titles of War Machine, but when he refused to used the Book Of Truth for an illegal advantage, Martini barred him from the group...and got kicked in the head as a result of this allowing Prince Nana plenty of time to turn Dijak towards his own designs. Daddiego and Hendrix then went after Dijak and Nana in revenge, leaving Lethal basically on his own regarding Wrestling/BulletClub, who swiftly positioned Adam Cole to take his last title belt.[[/folder]]
