** [[spoiler:In Wakanda, ust as soon as Thanos kills Vision and gets his hands on the Mind Stone, completing the Infinity Gauntlet, he is attacked by Thor, whose new [[WeaponOfXSlaying Thanos-killing axe Stormbreaker]] lives up to its purpose and gravely wounds Thanos with a well-placed throw to the chest. Thor walks up to the defeated Thanos, but because he was driven by a desire for revenge after being ForcedToWatch Thanos kill Loki, Thor decides to twist Stormbreaker further into Thanos' chest, instead of withdrawing it and decapitating him, just to savor his vengeance and make Thanos die as painfully as possible. This proves to be a fatal mistake on Thor's part, as Thanos is able to still kill half the universe and then escape victorious (and very much alive). Thanos even says it himself - "You should have gone for the head."]]

* In ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'', [[spoiler: on Titan, Thanos has finally been subdued enough from the combined efforts of Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Starlord, Drax, and Mantis to where they can finally try to get the Infinity Gauntlet, with everyone but Mantis holding him in place with their various weapons/abilities while Mantis herself has Thanos asleep with hypnotism. Unfortunately, once Quill finds out how Thanos got the Soul Gem, namely by killing Gamora to get it, he cannot contain his rage and decks Thanos, throwing the heroes' meticulous set-up off and allowing Thanos to throw them all off and ultimately score his victory, during which 50% of the universe's population is wiped from existence. "[[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Aw, man...]]", indeed.]]

* Reiko Mitamura in ''Fanfic/WhereTalentGoesToDie'' [[spoiler:cheats on a test, rather than risk getting a bad grade]]. Although it seems relatively innocuous, it comes back to haunt her in the second Chapter, when Monokuma gathers information on everyone- from dark secrets to personal weaknesses- and threatens to make them public knowledge unless someone commits murder. Mitamura, [[FatalFlaw obsessed with]] [[ThePerfectionist being perfect]], [[spoiler:is thus unable to resist the pressure, and commits murder in order to graduate and keep her secrets hidden]].

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'': Sayaka's decision to become a MagicalGirl is named by Homura as a big mistake that she will never be able to take back or recover from. Because Kyubey is treacherous, and her wish was made with SecretlySelfish intentions, Homura is right. Sayaka commits a further act of Hamartia by refusing to cleanse her Soul Gem, because she's in despair from seeing Kyousuke Kamijou (her childhood friend, on whose behalf she made the wish, and who she never had the courage to confess to -- which isn't helped by a certain reveal about what mahou shoujo are leading her to believe that she is no longer human) accepting Hitomi Shizuki's LoveConfession. Her despair not only turns her into a witch, but leads to both her own death and that of her rival-turned-friend Kyouko Sakura.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'': Though it could be said that Sayaka Miki's deal with Kyubey to become a MagicalGirl in the first place is the mistake that leads to her downfall (especially since Kyubey is treacherous and her wish was made with SecretlySelfish intentions -- Homura, as seen in the page quote, certainly believes this to be the case), her actual act of Hamartia is when she refuses to cleanse her Soul Gem, because she's in despair from seeing Kyousuke Kamijou (her childhood friend, on whose behalf she made the wish, and who she never had the courage to confess to -- which isn't helped by a certain reveal about what mahou shoujo are leading her to believe that she is no longer human) accepting Hitomi Shizuki's LoveConfession.

* ''Film/NicholasAndAlexandra'' features a scene in which Russia is teetering on the brink of getting involved in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI. Count Witte, the OnlySaneMan in the government of Tsar Nicholas II, begs the Tsar not to go to war, laying out in excruciating detail all the disasters that will follow. Nicholas orders mobilization anyway. This leads directly to Russia's defeat, RedOctober, and Nicholas and all of his family getting murdered by the Bolsheviks.
