** The games have one (although it's more attributed to the series being a LongRunner more than anything): [[spoiler:Tsukasa Oyashiki]] is indirectly responsible for the DL-6 incident, thanks to [[spoiler:inadvertently hiding the IS-7 victim's body. This was due to the fact that she was trying to prevent the destruction of some ice statues made by the victim, and didn't even know the killer hid the body there. Because of that, she's responsible for the forgery of evidence and Manfred von Karma's black spot on his perfect record]]. Even worse, the DL-6 Incident led to [[spoiler:the Feys losing their reputation, causing Morgan's husband to leave her and Dahlia to grow up to become a serial killer.]] Poor [[spoiler:Tsukasa]]'s got a ''lot'' of blood on [[spoiler:her]] hands.

* In the second season of ''Series/CriminalMinds'', [[spoiler:the team was trying to bring in a delusional war veteran who is panicking because the construction sounds like the war zone. Now, they find him and have swat surround the suspect as they coaxed him to surrender. They tell these construction men nearby in plain view of the drama to stop working until they are done, but naturally the men resume construction before the suspect is apprehended. This causes the suspect to panic and he runs towards a kid on a bike, forcing a SWAT marksman to shoot him.]] [[WhatTheHellTownspeople The construction crew couldn’t have waited 30 minutes for the damn police, SWAT, and FBI to finish?]]

* ''FanFic/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell'': [[spoiler:The Nightmare reveals it and other Champions of Chaos intended Sunset Shimmer to be this, placing a trigger within her to turn her into a demon the instant she put the Element of Magic on her head. It didn't work out as they planned - Sunset transforms, but is reverted to normal by the heroes soon after, without doing any lasting damage.]]

** Aoba Yamashir is a recurring background ninja who was probably never formally introduced, databooks aside. Why is his name so well-known in some parts of the ''Naruto'' community? A single careless sentence out of Aoba's mouth revealed Itachi's whereabouts and goals to Sasuke. Following that, Sasuke tried to beat up Itachi, was soundly defeated, and pondered why Itachi would be interested in Naruto. Sure, Sasuke wasn't particularly stable before, but this huge blow to Sasuke's self-esteem was the catalyst for the event that would finally send Sasuke over to TheDarkSide.
** Kakashi, ''of all people''. [[spoiler:He speaks about Naruto's birth at Rin's grave, and it just ''so happens'' that Tobi/Obito happened to overhear it, resulting in ''the Nine-Tailed Fox's fateful attack'' and the death of the Fourth Hokage]]. Furthermore, had Kakashi not [[spoiler:abandoned his principles and went back to help Obito save Rin, then Obito would have died. If Obito had died then, then Naruto's parents would still be alive, Naruto wouldn't have been marginalized by the village in his youth, Nagato would have been less crazy, the Rain Village wouldn't have committed as much genocide, Madara's plan would have died with him, the Jinchuriki would still be alive, the Uchiha Massacre might have been stopped, the Fourth Great Shinobi World War wouldn't have happened, and the Ten Tails wouldn't have been revived to wreak destruction upon the world.]] When Kakashi realizes this, he [[DespairEventHorizon logically isn't happy.]]
** Jiraiya took pity on three Rain Village orphans and trained them. They grow up to be revolutionaries in their own village, and after [[spoiler:Yahiko dies, Nagato turns evil, helps form Akatsuki with Tobi/Obito and Konan, and becomes an enemy of the Leaf Village, killing Jiraiya and devastating the village.]] But to be fair that only happened cause of the guy right below...

** Moira Queen is the indirect cause for the events of Season Three. During the events of Season Two, prior to her death, she informed the League of Assassins of Malcolm Merlyn's survival. The League, specifically Ra's al Ghul himself, were ''not'' happy with Malcolm after the Undertaking, and marked him down for death. Malcolm became so desperate to get off the League's hit list that he went as far as to brainwash Thea, ''his own daughter'', into killing Sara Lance, and taping it to blackmail Oliver into accepting the blame for Sara's death and issuing a challenge to Ra's al Ghul -- by killing Ra's, Oliver would be able to get everyone, even Malcolm and Thea, out of the red.
