* In ''WebVideo/SwordArtOnlineAbridged'' after they learn that [[spoiler: it was a ''glitch'' that killed players when their avatars died, and he claimed IMeantToDoThat because he hadn't slept in 300 hours]], Asuna asks why he didn't try to blame hackers impersonating him instead of continuing the charade for two years, given he had no motive.
--> '''Kayaba:''' Yeah, okay. See, Asuna? The problem with that is that it's an excellent idea that I wish I had thought of two years ago.

** By the time of ''Lord Tony's Wife'', it's Chauvelin who's advocating quick executions of aristos rather than putting them through elaborate public humiliation. The longer they're alive, he reasons, the more chance the Pimpernel has to rescue them.

* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': In one episode TheDragon Baron Ashura captured Kouji and [[HumongousMecha Mazinger-Z]] and gave him the "join-us-or-die" choice. After the Kouji's predictable answer, Ashura sentenced him to death, starting a bunch of giant power saws and drills to cut Mazinger-Z to pieces. [[TheDragon The another Dragon]] Count Brocken was watching the scene through a monitor and he stated Ashura beat around the bush too much and complicated things unnecessarily, and shooting Kabuto would be easier and quicker.

* The bread and butter HowItShouldHaveEnded- stating the far simpler and/or funnier way to solve the problem of the story than what the characters in the movie did. Examples include the ''Film/JurassicWorld'' park containing the Indomitus Rex by such simple measures as not putting in a dinosaur-sized exit to the habitat and building a moat inside it (something real life zoos very often do), [[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar Bucky]] avoiding his [[BrainwashedAndCrazy conditioning]] being activated by plugging his ears, and [[Film/SuicideSquad June]] preventing the whole plot of the film by making sure that the statue the Enchantress was trapped in is never damaged or broken, like a good archeologist.

* Inverted in ''Toys/{{Bionicle}} 3'': Sidorak wants to drop the Toa, who are held captive in cocoons, from atop the Coliseum, but his viceroy Roodaka convinces him to make the event more "legendary", so they wait until the Toa are mutated and disfigured by the cocoons' venom and ''then'' let them drop, by which time the Rahaga have arrived to save them mid-fall.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'': In the episode "Gazpacho Moves In," Gazpacho, having been thrown out of his mother's house, stays at Mung Daal's catering company until he gets back on his feet, and quickly becomes TheThingThatWouldNotLeave. Mung Daal decides the best way to kick Gazpacho out is to use a Multi-Rye Sandwich to [[MesACrowd clone him]], intending that Gazpacho would get so annoyed by his own behavior that he would leave. Truffles even lampshades it ("[[LampshadeHanging 'Cause just asking him to leave makes]] ''[[LampshadeHanging so]]'' [[LampshadeHanging little sense.]]"). The plan backfires when Gazpacho becomes friends with the clone, and when Chowder stupidly feeds him even more sandwiches and makes dozens of clones, it's only then that Mung decides to simply kick Gazpacho out.
