* In ''Franchise/TheFlash'', the Allens come to a doctor to deliver their twins, the same time as the Thawnes are expecting a delivery as well. The Thawne child died in childbirth, and, out of guilt, the doctor gave one of the Allen twins to the Thawnes while fabricating a lie to his real parents that he died. Malcolm "Thawne" grows up in a dysfunctional, criminal family, and when he learns of his true parentage, comes to resent his twin brother Barry as a result. While Barry successfully heads a mostly-familial legacy of superheroes, Malcolm would become the ancestor to multiple supervillains (the second Reverse Flash, Captain Boomerang II, Inertia, not to mention multiple other descendants that bear Malcolm's "Cobalt Blue" villain moniker), creating one of the largest FeudingFamilies in the DCU.

* Best Buy's acquisition of Musicland in 2001 and their subsequent gross negligence, including ''[[EpicFail hemorrhaging $80 million]]'' '''''[[EpicFail in one year]]''''' before selling it the following year, ultimately drove it to bankrupcy, leading to a mass closing of stores before being brought by Trans World Entertainment (owner of competitor FYE) in 2006. The mass closing of stores caused unsold stock to be taken back to the warehouses. While this has affected all home video companies, anime companies are (who were 100% reliant on home video sales due to the lack of digital distribution rights at the time) were particularly severely affected, leading to the crash of the North American anime industry by the end of the 2000s, including the closures of Creator/{{ADV Films}}, Creator/{{Geneon}} and Creator/CentralParkMedia, and the downsizing and eventual closure of Creator/BandaiEntertainment. On the general side, the mass closing of the stores led to a decline of home video sales, which was further exacerbated by the growing ubiquity of streaming services such as Hulu and Netflix.

* Kenny Linder from ''Film/TheFastAndTheFurious''. If he hadn't accidentally killed Dominic's and Mia's father in a racing crash, Dominic wouldn't have beaten him savagely with a wrench and gotten himself banned from racing. And then he wouldn't have turned to hijacking trucks to fund his street racing. And then Brian wouldn't have gotten involved, etc. In short, Kenny Linder is indirectly responsible for the ''entire series''.
