* ''Doki Doki Densetsu Anime/MahoujinGuruGuru'' has the characters discover Kukuri's birthplace where items for her use had been left behind. The bad news is the items had been collected by monsters called Gimu Gimu. Good news is they're tame and don't object to people taking back what's theirs. Unfortunately, they also don't object to people taking items and ''selling'' them, which is exactly what Nike, Kukuri, and Toma did prior to reaching the ruins. To make it worse, a necklace meant specifically for Kukuri was lost when Toma earlier used the item it was kept in as an impromptu rocket launcher. Poor Kukuri simply snaps at this point and regresses to a four-year old for a few moments. For the record, they ''did'' find the necklace soon after.

** Guessing Orihime's unique power is valuable to Aizen, Urahara takes her off the front line to prevent her being targeted but doesn't admit why he's doing it. Rukia takes Orihime to Soul Society to train her for front line battle takes her away from Urahara's watchful eye, and allows Aizen to stage a kidnapping within the Dangai. The Dangai is supposed to be impossible to break into, so people travelling there are very vulnerable. However, the person who figured out how to break into the Dangai was Urahara himself, the only man capable of predicting and countering everything Aizen does. Urahara ends up kicking himself for his mistake.

** After his training with the Royal Guard, Ichigo is given armor made of the "King's Key", allowing him to race back to Soul Society at top speed and fight the Vandenreich invasion, without ever needing to slow down due to air friction burning him. The problem is that doing so ''also'' breaks all the barriers keeping the Vandenreich out of their actual goal, the Soul King Palace, and those barriers can't be recreated for 6000 seconds after their destruction. [[BigBad Yhwach]] proceeds to sarcastically praise Ichigo as being the great hero ''of the Vandenreich'' for this.

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia:'' In the ''Running Away With Mr. Swe'' strip, [[NiceGuy Finland]] decides to follow [[GentleGiant Sweden]], who's fed up with Denmark's attitude and being controlled, and run away to live on their own. While he's at first glad that he's gotten away from Denmark, it doesn't take long for Finland to start mentally kicking himself for his spontaneous decision, considering the person that he ran away with has a FaceOfAThug and IcyBlueEyes. He's so terrified of Sweden that he decides he can't live with him and makes plans to run away in the middle of the night while Sweden is asleep...only to have his [[ThwartedEscape escape attempt thwarted]] by an unknowing Sweden himself.

* ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'' should have a lot of examples throughout the show's run. It at least happened in the movie, "Nobita in the Wan-Nyan Spacetime Odyssey". Nobita finds stray dogs and cats and wants them to have a home. The gang time traveled them back 300 million years and providing them with evolution and a food making machine. When they visit them again, they encounter a time disturbance causing them to be stranded in a different year in that era with advanced sentient dogs and cats, thus started the movie.

* In one of the early arcs from ''{{Toriko}}'', titular character gives Komatsu his special, gunpowder-charged firecrackers for scaring off dangerous animals, knowing that he didn't have superpowers to defend himself. However, he went a little bit too far with explosive power. As the result, after crackers exploded, sound not only scared off predators, but also ruptured both of Komatsu's eardrums and ''stopped his heart''. Luckily for him, Jiro managed to reanimate him.

* In episode 9 of ''Manga/KoufukuGraffiti'', Kirin's mother tells her to get a seat reserved on the train. Kirin mentions she's already done it and continues watching television. Unfortunately when they get to the station, it's completely full, and Kirin is forced to wait another hour for the next train since she didn't bother getting a ticket.

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', [[spoiler: Itachi]], ordered to kill his entire clan [[spoiler:to prevent a bloody coup that would kill all of Konoha]], couldn't bring himself to kill [[spoiler: his younger brother, Sasuke]]. As a result, he spared said person, and tried to enact a {{plan}} that would end with that person a hero beloved by Konoha, and capable of defending himself and it against the BigBad. Instead, it ended with him as TheDragon to the BigBad, swearing to ''destroy'' Konoha. Oopsie!
** Itachi's entire plan for Sasuke is a NiceJobBreakingItHero. [[spoiler: It never occurred to him that [[MindRape mind Raping]] him twice would be detrimental to Sasuke's mental health. Nor occurring to him that beating him half to death twice would make him psychotic. Nor occurring to him that Sasuke might kill Naruto to get the MS. Nor tried to stop Orochimaru from getting Sasuke.]] If he didn't intervene or interfere with Sasuke's life at all, [[spoiler: he would have gotten what he wanted-a Konoha Aligned Sasuke killing him instead of a fucked up mentally Neutral Sasuke.]]
** Jiraiya's desire to give Sasuke a shot at killing Itachi in the hotel is understandable, but it takes all of three seconds for it to become apparent that he's [[CurbStompBattle absolutely no match]] for his older brother. It still takes him at least another five minutes, many broken bones, and a vicious mind raping to actually intervene. [[spoiler: In fact, it's very possible that the ''only'' reason Itachi even resorted to Tsukuyomi is because he was waiting for Jiraiya to give him the excuse to flee, and nothing else was making him act.]] This loss was one of the biggest reasons for Sasuke's defection.
** The Uchiha's [[spoiler:planned coup]] in the first place could have only ended in tears. And assuming that [[spoiler:Madara]] is not [[BlatantLies lying through his teeth]] about wanting to restore his clan's position of power and prominence, it's hard to see how reducing the clan to a few hated, emotionally broken criminals could result in this, though I suppose it's stretch to apply "Hero" here.
*** [[spoiler:Tobi's not even ''Madara'', and actually hated the Uchiha Clan with great vigor. The actual Madara has been dead for some time, and Tobi is really Obito. Which leads to another offender-Kakashi. Why did Obito become a mask-wearing psycho terrorist who's obsessed with his AssimilationPlot? [[LoveMakesYouEvil Because Kakashi killed Rin.]] Though, to be fair, how was he supposed to know that his supposed-to-be-dead best friend would become said mask-wearing psycho terrorist who's obsessed with his AssimilationPlot, ''just'' because the girl he had a crush on died, anyway?]]
*** [[spoiler:It's later revealed that it wasn't Kakashi's fault. Rin practically forced him to kill her.]]
*** [[spoiler: Kakashi could have averted a whole lot of this if he'd stayed as a [[TheStoic stoic]] Jerkass and ''stuck to the damn mission'' instead of saving his team.]]
