* In ''ComicBook/UltimateFantasticFour'', Reed Richards created the Cosmic Cube to defend Earth against {{Thanos}}... which is exactly what Thanos was manipulating him to do.

* In one of the tie-ins to ''Comicbook/OriginalSin'', it's revealed that during WorldWar2, Comicbook/TheInvaders had a chance to defeat Imperial Japan without dropping the Atom Bombs, but chose not to go through with it. The explanation given is that Golden Girl and the Kid Commandos purposefully sabotaged the plan, as it would've endangered the lives of a bunch of native islanders living near the Japanese coast. The plan's failure is what led to President HarryTruman's decision to bomb Hiroshima and Nagasaki, resulting in far more civilian deaths than would have occurred had Golden Girl not interfered. Radiance, Golden Girl's granddaughter, understandably goes berserk when she learns this.

* ''ComicBook/JokersLastLaugh'' would not have happened if a doctor hadn't decided that lying to the Joker and tell him he has cancer to screw with him was a good idea.

** Silver takes some blame too: [[spoiler:It was revealed that he knew that Eggman wold use a second Death Egg and that Naugus would become king. Yet he never told the Freedom Fighters these things, meaning they were unprepared for those events.]]



** Like father like son, however Knuckles has ''3 if not 4'' occasions:
*** [[http://archiesonic.wikia.com/wiki/Hyper_Knuckles When Knuckles first obtained his Super Mode while searching for a spare Chaos Emerald for his island,]] he fought Super Sonic in a hidden zone seconds from Robotropolis. Sonic tried to stop fighting, Knuckles kept pushing things until the zone was destroyed, destroying innumerable Chaos Emeralds, and exhausting their [[SuperMode transformations]] before they could use them to defeat Robotnik. The spare he did get ended up getting absorbed into the Master Emerald anyway.
*** [[http://archiesonic.wikia.com/wiki/Sonic_%26_Knuckles:_Mecha_Madness After heavily damaging Robotropolis during Mecha Madness,]] Knuckles stuns Robotnik with a headbutt and explains how he survived before flying himself and Sonic back to Knothole, instead of just finishing Robotnik off right after the headbutt. Robotnik was able to rebuild and eventually set up the "Endgame" arc.
*** [[http://archiesonic.wikia.com/wiki/Chaos_Knuckles As Chaos Knuckles]] he tried to use time travel to reunify his people, preventing the Dark Legion from forming. However he failed each time, his last attempt would've gotten his people roboticized. He never realized that he could just ''stop'' Robotnik from rising to power in the first place with time travel and save his people. And considering how he knew the origins of quite a few villains by this point, one could say that Knuckles is to blame to the book's villains.
*** [[http://archiesonic.wikia.com/wiki/Enerjak#History_as_Knuckles As Enerjak]] he destroyed Eggman's base and his air fleet. Bizarrely, while he did use his powers to kill Kage, and realized that his people's problems led back to Eggman, he once again never thought to kill Eggman. Eggman rebuilt what was left in the aftermath into the second Death Egg.

* Ah, the [[Franchise/GreenLantern Guardians of the Universe]]. Living proof that age does not necessarily equal wisdom, as it seems that in one way or another, pretty much every single one of their decisions backfires ''spectacularly''. Highlights of their past decisions coming back to bite them in the ass include the [[AIIsACrapshoot robotic]] [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters Manhunters]], rouge Guardian [[OmnicidalManiac Krona]], [[EvilCounterpart rival corps]] such as the Red Lanterns and the Sinestro corps, and, last but not least, the events of ''ComicBook/EmeraldTwilight''. [[spoiler: And that was ''before'' [[FaceHeelTurn they went off the deep end]]]]. It is not an exaggeration to say that most of the conflict from the GL books stems in some way from the Guardians. No matter what decision they make, action or non-action, it always ends up being the wrong one.

* In ''Comicbook/BlackestNight'', [[Franchise/GreenLantern Hal Jordan]] managed to get all [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience seven Lantern Corps]] [[AllYourColorsCombined to work together to fight against the Black Lanterns]]. Ultimately, they all fire their rings at the Black Central Power Battery, in order to destroy it. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, they weren't destroying the Battery, but '''feeding''' it. Flush with energy, Nekron (lord of the Black Lanterns) was able to turn every superhero that had died and resurrected into Black Lanterns. This includes Wonder Woman, Superman, [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Green Arrow]].]]

** Virtually the entirety of John Stewart's career consists of careening from one such moment to another. From getting his sister killed in a car accident to the destruction of two planets, John has pretty much the highest kill count possible while still being called a hero.

* Comicbook/TheMightyThor: In-universe, almost everyone considers Thor bringing back SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} (after he died in ''Siege'') to be this. Loki was, however, brought back as a kid without any of his former emotional baggage (this was discovered to be one last shot at redemption/something like that by the original Loki). The trope's been subverted because so far the kid has one goal in mind: save Thor from the Serpent (and he if saves Earth too, then that's great!).

** Almost and sort of happened in the ''Rock of Ages'' storyline. [[spoiler: As Superman and the other mainstringers of the JLA go after SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor, who has acquired the Philosopher's Stone and formed his own Injustice Gang, it is revealed to Franchise/GreenLantern, Flash, and Comicbook/{{Aquaman}} that the JLA will eventually defeat Luthor and the Gang, and Superman will destroy the powerful Stone… which will somehow cause Darkseid to conquer the Earth. They even get a firsthand experience of that dark (pun not intended) future. This future is averted when they get back barely in time to give Martian Manhunter a warning for him to stop Superman from destroying the Philosopher's Stone.]]
