* This is actually a plot point in ''Series/TheFollowing'': Wannabe [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] Joe Carroll founds his cult of psycho killers to carry out his bidding. The problem is that ''it's a cult of psycho killers''. They're all crazy and murderous, and directing them toward any kind of focused productive activity is next to impossible. The original cult implodes before the end of the first season, and Joe's later attempts to rebuild keep running it into the same problem: AxCrazy people just don't play nice together.

** Hell, practically every ''Power Rangers'' villain has had to put up with having to conquer the universe with the aid of complete morons. Lothor and Divatox stand quite high on that list.

[[folder: Mythology ]] * A heroic example in presented in Literature/TheOdyssey; Odysseus' men end up screwing Odysseus over time and time again, doing things like getting trapped on the [[LotusEaterMachine Island of Lotus Eaters]], opening the bag of winds just as they were almost home, and butchering Helios' sacred calves. Sure, it was Odysseus' fault that Poseidon was angry at them, but you'd think his men would know better than to piss off the rest of the pantheon. [[/folder]]

* In the case of Unsui in ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'', he was surrounded by perverts. But in the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue, this trope is played straight and he seems to be on the verge of saying this.

Also Hiruma and Suzuna usually react like this when a dumber or excited teammates points out an obvious or dumb statement while the other marvels at it.

* SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor's flunkies, [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks back in the day,]] tended to be dunces and were sometimes played for comic relief. They also might make [[HeelFaceTurn Heel Face Turns.]] [[Film/{{Superman}} Otis and Miss Tessmacher]] are actually quite faithful to this type in the comics.

* SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom, of course, has pulled it more than once. Then again, Doom has it harder than most -- in his eyes -- as everyone who isn't Doom fits this quote...

* ''Film/TheHungerGames'': President Coriolanus Snow takes this attitude towards Seneca Crane during their scenes in the movie. In general he seems to dislike the hypocrisy of the system he runs, or at least get tired of it, and enjoys the company of those, like Plutarch and Katniss, who share his cynicism.

[[folder: Comic Books ]]* An interesting variation in ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe''. While Gru doesn't find the antics of the Minions annoying (at least not to the point where he berates them loudly and viciously), they do have a tendency to aggravate ''each other''.
