But in his desperation to stop Kishward, Daryun and the others from killing [[spoiler: Hilmes ]], he [[spoiler: blurted out that if they do, they will be extinguishing the royal line]] while in front of Arslan, emotionally shattering the poor boy's world. This also allows [[spoiler: Hilmes]] to escape in the confusion. Narsus was [[EnragedByIdiocy furious]], thinking to himself that he should cut Bahman down for such actions.

* When Elma and Tohru first met in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'', Elma was attempting to bring about peace among the humans in the other world. It resulted in a cult that was prepared to go to war with anyone who wouldn't worship her -- [[ThroughHerStomach getting Elma to look the other way by bribing her with food]].

* ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'': Tariga started having a melt down after he realized that Touka had arrived but Tsuruba hadn't been seen as [[spoiler: it meant Tsuruba was likely dead]]. Unfortunately he reacted to this revelation by using a KnockoutGas on [[spoiler:Touka's]] guards in order to confront him and the heartless noble's BreakingSpeech worked wonders, with Tariga nearly stumbling from the room while leaving it unguarded, unlocked and with the unconscious guards weapons now handy for the villain.

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' Itachi, ordered to kill his entire clan to prevent a bloody coup that would kill all of Konoha, couldn't bring himself to kill his younger brother, Sasuke. As a result, he spared said person, and tried to enact a [[GambitRoulette 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 ally to the BigBad, swearing to ''destroy'' Konoha. Oopsie!
** Itachi's entire plan for Sasuke is a NiceJobBreakingItHero. 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, he would have gotten what he wanted-a Konoha Aligned Sasuke killing him instead of a fucked up mentally Neutral Sasuke.

*** [[spoiler:He abandoned his mission so that he could help Obito when they were kids, resulting in a crippled Obito ending up on Madara's doorstep setting off most of the plot.]]
*** [[spoiler:He inadvertently caused the Kyuubi incident by blabbing that Kurama's Jinchuuriki was gonna have a baby in front of Rin's grave, not realizing Obito was there as well.]]
** And then there's the Sage of the Six Paths, in his day he saved the entire world from a monstrous threat, founded the Shinobi way, and was pretty much revered as a Messiah and PhysicalGod. [[spoiler: That isn't an exaggeration, the threat he defeated was a godlike Ten Tailed beast, which he then proceeded to ''seal into himself'', inadvertently giving himself [[RealityWarper Reality Warping Powers]]. He then proceeded to use those powers to ''create the moon in order to seal away the beast's body'' and then split it's chakra into the nine Tailed Beasts]]. Nice guy. Unfortunately he's also indirectly responsible for [[spoiler: The Uchiha massacre and the Fourth Shinobi World War. Not to mention all the deaths the tailed beasts caused over the centuries.]]
** [[TykeBomb Gaara]] probably wouldn't be half as screwed up as he is if his father had not only had him turned into a Jinchuuriki, killing his mother in the process, but also [[spoiler:sent Gaara's uncle on a suicide mission and ordered him to tell Gaara that no-one loved him in order to test Shukaku's power]]. OK, so the Fourth Kazekage was doing it to protect his village in desperate times, but he ended up with an unstable, AxCrazy child who kills people left, right and centre, is treated like a monster, has his own siblings terrified of him, and probably would have gotten a lot worse if [[DefeatMeansFriendship Naruto hadn't showed up]]. During the 4th Shinobi War arc, [[spoiler:when Gaara's father is one of the zombies raised by Kabuto using Edo Tensei, he is defeated by Gaara and admits that he's well aware he screwed up on every possible level.]]

** Sakura also did it twice:
*** Despite her good intentions in the Five Kage Summit arc, due to letting her emotions getting the better of her and underestimating Sasuke and the affair concerning him, the only things Sakura managed to do is nearly get herself, Kakashi and Naruto killed--with Naruto from both facing Sasuke and being cut by ''her own poisoned kunai'' that Sasuke tried to used on her when the former saved her.
*** In Chapter 674, Obito pleads for Sakura to destroy his Rinnegan eye so that Madara wouldn't be able to take it. She completely hesitates out of fear, resulting in Madara taking back his other eye from Obito and bringing about the beginning of the Infinite Tsukuyomi. The fact that she ''doesn't'' reveal her mistakes to Kakashi when he asks her what happened in the following chapter doesn't help her case.
** The Second Hokage ''also'' did it twice:
*** First, he was of the opinion that the Uchiha would eventually betray Konoha. Well, he certainly laid the groundwork to [[{{SelfFulfillingProphecy}} making sure they would.]] Between Tobirama's paranoia about the Uchiha, and Madara's even ''more'' paranoid reactions to Tobirama, a betrayal became inevitable.
*** ''Edo Tensei''. Even ''[[BigBad Orochimaru]]'' [[WhatTheHellHero calls him out]] on documenting a jutsu that allows the dead to be resurrected and used as an indestructible army. And it requires HumanSacrifice to activate. Tobirama's idea was that fallen allies could be raised on the battlefield and enemy soldiers used as the sacrifices to raise them, but still. He should've known such a technique was too dangerous to leave lying around.

* ''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.
