* In the DaleBrown book ''Plan of Attack'', Russian president Gryzlov would have avoided death if he had not [[spoiler: used nukes against the ABF-taken Russian airbase]] and prompted an EvenEvilHasStandards RedemptionEqualsDeath moment. In ''Edge of Battle'' Comandante Veracruz would not have been stopped either if he did not [[spoiler: double-cross Zakharov and cause him to carry out EnemyMine]].

** Orochimaru had a tendency to do things that were counterproductive towards his goals for no real reason other than that [[ForTheEvulz he likes being a dick]]. The best example is probably when he killed the Kazekage... after the Kazekage had agreed to help him attack Konoha. So Orochimaru killed off a powerful ally, pretty much just because he could.

Later, during his fight with the Third Hokage, he deliberately dragged the fight out purely because he wanted to make him psychologically suffer before killing him; this allowed the Third to cast a jutsu that cost Orochimaru the use of his arms.

* ''VideoGame/GodOfWarChainsOfOlympus'': [[spoiler:Persephone]] had just gotten Kratos to cast aside his blades and renounce his powers as the Ghost of Sparta so that he can be with his daughter in the Elysian Fields. All she needs to do in order to win is ''leave him alone'' for a few hours so that her plan can be completed while he's playing with Calliope. Instead, she makes a point of telling him that she's the villain of the game (something he didn't have the slightest inkling of until she explained her plan), and that thanks to his actions the world will soon be destroyed, and that the Elysian Plains and all the spirits living there will be destroyed with it. This motivates Kratos to reclaim his powers and save the world.

** The same thing happens with Yhwach. Despite being introduced as a savvy villain who manages to trounce Soul Society and kill Yamamoto, he leaves Ichigo alive because he wants to eventually recruit him due to his Quincy heritage. Ultimately, Ichigo is the one who kills him.

** [[spoiler:Madara Uchiha catches him when trying to get his second eye back. In the moment when Madara wants to return his Rinnegan from Black Zetsu, Obito does not allow to do so. Instead of, you know, try to take his eye immediately because any man at a time could to understand that Obito not his friend since Obito himself had said him that he had never considered his ally and also betrayed him when become the Ten Tails Jinchuuriki. Also Madara has forced Obito to resurrect him through jutsu which kills the user at using and anyone was understandable that Obito will be displeased this. Not Madara. [[WhatAnIdiot He trying to convince him to give Rinnegan voluntarily and then he surprised that Obito went against him]]. And later when Obito and Naruto teleported in other dimension he instead of to try hinder Obito resurrect Naruto is [[BloodKnight spending all their time fighting with Guy]] and even not think about it.]]
** [[spoiler:Black Zetsu during revival Kaguya. After activation Infinite Tsukuyomi he backstabs Madara and to use as fodder for Kaguya's resurrection but also he showed that he knows about the seals on Naruto and Sasuke's hands that will seal Kaguya if they touch her together. So why he just not wait until Madara, will win them and already after this using him for Kaguya's resurrection. After all, the Madara better chance to beat them because he much more experienced in combat than Kaguya and he does not need to worry about these seals unlike Kaguya. [[EvilGloating But apparently he just wanted to gloat]].]]

* In ''Series/{{Caprica}}'', Diego is ordered by the Holy Mother to kill Lacey and MakeItLookLikeAnAccident. Instead of killing her in a clean and deniable way as ordered, he can't resist the impulse to play a sadistic power game, and tries to force her lover Odin [[ShootYourMate to kill her]] as a DeadlyGraduation. This inevitably gets him killed instead, and Lacey is so upset that she sets a horde of killer robots on the entire Soldiers Of The One leadership. Nice one, Diego.

* In ''EternalSonata'', your party is forced to surrender party member Polka to CardCarryingVillain Count Waltz. Waltz successfully convinces Polka that if she surrenders peacefully then no harm will come to the party or her, and he will call off his army. Polka (in turn) successfully convinces the rest of the party to allow her to go with Waltz and sacrifice her freedom for the greater good. Waltz's plan would have worked perfectly... if he ''hadn't'' decided to punctuate his victory by ''slapping Polka in clear view of everyone'', proving he was a lying prick and prompting Polka (and the rest of the party) to attack.
