'''Note:''' This trope has been subject to some [[TropeDecay misuse]]. If you see any examples or {{pot hole}}s to this page in which the character's stupidity does not result in their demise, please remove them or point them to one of the alternative idiocy tropes. [[ChoosingDeath Suicide]] and HeroicSacrifices are not examples either.

There's simple ignorance, when you just didn't know something. And there's fear and panic, when the ApocalypseHow is getting down all around you and everybody's going crazy. And there's the people for whom LoveMakesYouDumb. There are people who just meet requirements for WhatAnIdiot and TheDitz, or happen to catch the IdiotBall. And then there's ''these'' guys. People who are so stupid that they simply do not ''deserve'' to survive.

Walking down the alley alone to tell his friend about the SerialKiller in town. Telling everybody in earshot he has [[HaveYouToldAnyoneElse vital evidence that he'll be taking to the authorities very shortly]]. [[CuriosityKilledTheCast Hovering in a known dangerous area]] [[NeverSplitTheParty without backup]]. [[PoorCommunicationKills Not telling the rest of the heroes about the upcoming trap laid out for them]]. BullyingADragon or MuggingTheMonster. [[WhatDoesThisButtonDo Touching buttons]] [[DontTouchItYouIdiot when told not to]]. JugglingLoadedGuns. [[PerilousOldFool Refusing to believe his glory days are behind him]]. [[BlackmailBackfire Blackmailing someone about murder]]. Not only possessing GenreBlindness, but putting [[Franchise/TheHitchHikersGuideToTheGalaxy Zaphod Beeblebrox's]] [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter Peril-Sensitive Sunglasses on over it]]. Even close friends have to {{facepalm}} upon hearing of his or her exploits.
