** Rostam is cautious and patriotic to fault when it comes to fighting the Turanian champion who unknown to him is his son. Considering Sohrab's immense strength and fighting prowess and considering his own age, Rostam denies his true identity even when Sohrab repeatedly asks him if he is indeed Rostam, because Rostam fears that he might lose and the Turanians would be unstoppable if they no longer feared the threat of Persia’s greatest warrior.

** Sohrab's naivete causes him to keep his identity and the armband that Rostam had given to his mother specifically so that he would be able to identify his child hidden. This eventually leads father and son into battle with tragic consequences.
** Esfandiar's obsession with becoming king causes him to ignore his mother's advice and play into his father's hand by fighting Rostam.

** Esfandiar's obsession with becoming king causes him to ignore his mother's advice and play into his father's hand by fighting Rostam. Rostam to gain the crown. It's never a good idea to fight Rostam, even if you are invincible like Esfandiar!

** Another case in the movie is the paroled criminal whom [=McCauley=] recruits for the final heist. He had no involved in any of the crimes so far and could have easily said no to the offer and walked away. Instead he makes an impulsive decision and ends up [[spoiler: killed by the cops]].

** Another tragic mistake happened several missions before The Gate, when Walker made the decision to push further into Dubai to [[spoiler:contact the CIA upon learning that the 33rd Infantry has gone rogue]], instead of requesting evac and getting himself and his team the hell out of there as someone doing recon is supposed to do. This leads to Walker [[spoiler:leading his team into what he and they know is a trap to rescue a CIA agent who is being tortured, and ultimately leads to him falling off a skyscraper (symbolizing his eventual downfall)]]. The result is that Walker and his team cannot safely leave Dubai beyond this point, setting the stage for the subsequent bad decisions (including the white phosphorus) that [[spoiler:ultimately doom Walker, his team, and Dubai]]. All because Walker [[HeroicWannabe wanted to be a hero]].

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': There are many examples of this throughout the series, but arguably one of the most tragic - because it is clearly depicted as a mistake - involves Clara Oswald in "Face the Raven." [[spoiler: Clara has a death sentence intended for a friend transferred to her in the mistaken belief that the episode's antagonist would never harm her. She's wrong and ends up killed as a result (later episodes play the timey-wimey ball on this last point, but the end result remains unchanged).]]
