** A DevelopmentGag resulted from [[BetaTest alpha tester]] stupidity in early versions of the TC_Inferno map. The SpacePlane hangar was situated to the side of a runway rather than in-line like most maps, with a large concrete wall on the opposite side to prevent enemies from shoot planes taking off. Players were ''supposed'' to taxi forward, turn, then take off; instead, every single alpha tester would hop into their plane and then immediately mash the afterburner, plowing into the wall at 400kph. The developer then placed hint screens in the spawn room with helpful hints like "DO NOT TAXI INTO WALL" and "DO NOT LAND IN LAVA".

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' includes many dumb ways to die such as blowing yourself up with one of your own [[ExplosiveStupidity explosive attacks]] such as Junkrat's RIP-Tire or Tracer's Pulse Bomb[[note]]and D.Va's Self-Destruct, before a patch rendered D.Va immune to her own mech's explosion[[/note]] and going off into a pit with Reinhardt's Charge or Winston's Jump Pack.

* ''VideoGame/DarkElfHistoria'' has a non-fatal example, but it's no less stupid. Throughout the game, various civilians in Rand City warn you not to hang out around the docks at night, and there is a warehouse down in the docks that's guarded during the day, and if you approach the guard, Fraylia will note that whatever's going in there is probably bad news and it's probably best not to get involved. Nonetheless, eventually, Fraylia gains the ability to travel the city at night, and eventually the warehouse becomes accessible. Enter the warehouse in one of the later chapters of the game, and there will be bandits in there. Approach them and Fraylia gets drugged and gang-raped.

* In ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVI'', you can go back to the final room of the catacombs at any time once you've made it through. There's also nothing stopping you walking straight into the fire, should you wish to do so.

** Picking up a PoisonMushroom in ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels The Lost Levels]]'' when you've played it before.

** Picking up a PoisonMushroom in ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels The Lost Levels]]'' when you've played it before.willingly. Especially if you're playing the ''All Stars'' version where the mushroom in question is a ''toxic purple with a skull on the front.''

* Many of the deaths in ''ZackAndWiki'' are illogical and can only be figured out via trial and error, but some of them can only be discovered through stupidity. For example, in "The Flute of the Growlin' Goblins", you have to poison the goblin's soup. After they die, you can click on the soup cauldron to [[TooDumbToLive drink some yourself.]]

This will often overlap with HaveANiceDeath if the game decides to mock you for your stupidity. When player stupidity wipes out an entire party in an MMORPG, it's also TotalPartyKill.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'': ummmm, well, where to start? You can die from just taking damage and running out of hearts, extreme heat, extreme cold, falling/knocked from a great height, jumping into freezing or boiling water, getting shot by a laser, getting electrocuted/burned/frozen by enemies, carrying too many metal items during a thunderstorm and being struck by lightning (see being electrocuted), running out of stamina while gliding, forgetting to open your glider, having your weapon or shield break at the worst possible time, misadventures with the torch near explosives/with the bomb (in general), and last but not least, doing something incredibly stupid like riding your shield off a cliff.

* In ''VideoGame/TorinsPassage'', funny deaths were often a few seconds away, but your last act of the game invites the chance to make such an incredible ViolationOfCommonSense, that a secret message from producer AlLowe plays over the death screen pointing out how utterly insane a player must be to sneak up silently behind the BigBad only to [[spoiler:start playing the bagpipes]]. (Yes, it's another Sierra game, why do you ask?)
