* In ''Film/StVincent'', aside from hanging out with a prostitute, Vincent took Oliver to a racetrack and a bar while babysitting him. This ends up costing Oliverís mother half-custody when Oliverís father takes her to court.

* ''Film/ManOfSteel'':
** When Clark tells Zod [[spoiler: how he managed to control his super-senses, Zod is able to make use of the information to become ''that much more dangerous''.]]
** When Clark begins exploring the [[spoiler: Kryptonian spacecraft he finds in the Artic, he inadvertently sets off a beacon that alerts Zod and his followers to the presence of Earth.]]
** Hell, pretty much ''every decision'' made by any Kryptonian who is not Zod in the opening sequence is an example of this: Jor-El stealing the codex, which did nothing but give Zod a reason to go looking for it. [[IllNeverTellYouWhatImTellingYou Jor-El telling Zod that Kal-El and the codex are on the rocket he just fired off]]. The council [[CruelMercy imprisoning Zod and his allies in the Phantom Zone]] when they know their planet is doomed, anyway.
* ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'': Superman [[spoiler:overpowers Doomsday and drags him into space, where they can fight without hurting anyone]]. The President decides to launch a nuke at them, ignoring General Swanwick's protests that Superman has the situation well in hand. The end result, [[spoiler:Superman gets knocked out and nearly killed, while the explosion knocks Doomsday back to Earth and makes him more powerful.]]

** Godzilla stops the flying Muto with a quick tail swipe into a tall building...which then collapses on top of him.

** ''Film/ShinGodzilla'' sees the US Armed Forces come to the JSDF's aid--and screw things up ''really badly''. How bad? Godzilla's reaction to bunker busters wounding him is to unleash his Atomic Breath for the first time, irradiating half of Tokyo and [[spoiler:killing the Prime Minister and most of the Cabinet when they try to leave the city]].

* Aladdin tricking Jafar into becoming a genie saved the day in ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}''. But when he gets loose in ''Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar'', Aladdin's created a foe with all of the Genie's powers and none of the morals. Way to go, Al. Although at the same time, some of the threat is gone because genies can't kill, [[RunningGag but you'd be surprised at what you can live through.]]

* At the end of ''Film/TheRing'', we find out that not only has the creepy girl from the well not been defeated, she's actually been released to reign terror upon the rest of the world. Plus she never sleeps, so it's not like we'll be getting a daily eight hour break from the reign of terror. Nice job, hero.

** After Nedry shuts down the fences to steal the embryos and make his escape, the TyrannosaurusRex gets out and wreaks havoc. In order to undo what Nedry has done, Hammond wants the computers shut down and restarted. When [[Creator/SamuelLJackson Ray Arnold]] initially refuses, Hammond insists: "People are dying. Would you ''please'' shut down the system." Arnold does so. Nedry was smart enough to program the raptor fences to stay operational during his sabotage; the total system shutdown releases the Velociraptors. Prior to this, the ''T. Rex'' had only killed one person and likely preferred snacking on its fellow dinosaurs as opposed to stringy, bony humans; the raptors kill two humans [[ForTheEvulz for the simple sport of it]], and relentlessly pursue the main characters for the rest of the film. Nice job, Hammond.

** By the way, Neo destroyed [[BigBad Agent Smith]] in the first movie; however, the latter came back as a rebellious program. Way to go, Neo.

** Also, in ''Film/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'' since Dumbledore had enchanted [[spoiler: The Mirror of Erised to only give the stone to someone who didn't want to use it]] Voldemort couldn't have retrieved it until Harry showed up and [[spoiler: the stone appeared in his pocket]]. Nice job Harry! Furthermore, since Voldemort couldn't get the stone anyway, Harry and his friends' quest to stop Voldemort was unnecessary and they put their lives in danger for nothing. Really all they did was kill Quirrel!
*** Not just that, they set off an order of events that would eventually lead to Harry's own death (and every other death in the series). Voldemort was stuck in Quirrel, living a half life, he wasn't exactly thriving. By beating him in that form at that time he didn't allow Dumbledore time to find his horcruxes (which would have prevented him from respawning) and basically opened the door for him to come back as a complete (more or less) being AND lose his inability to touch Harry so double-no, triple-good job breaking it hero! And it's not like Voldemort could've got the stone since even if he got wise and tried to use someone else to get it with the Imperius curse, they still wouldn't be able to get it because the second he tells them to get it they will want to get it and will therefore not be able to get it. Basically he was stuck in that form and Harry did him a huge solid.

** The rest of the movie is spent trying to stop the serial killer from killing his other victims, including Frank's wife. [[spoiler:In the end, the killer, who is still at large in the present, breaks into John's house and attacks him while John's talking to his father on the radio. Right as it looks like he's going to win, in walks a thirty-year-older Frank with a shotgun. [[SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfAwesome He'd heard the fight on the radio, and thus knew exactly where the killer was going to be thirty years from now]].]] Nice job ''fixing'' it, hero!

* ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes'': The original had an astronaut landing in the future from a freak accident. The [[Film/PlanetOfTheApes2001 remake]] has the hero CAUSING the freak accident that launches his ship even further back in time and giving his mutant lab apes free reign over a primitive world. Changes things considerably.

* At the end of ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'', the titular AntiAntiChrist kills the villain [[RasputinTheMadMonk Rasputin]]... only for a ''very'' huge and scary tentacle monster to [[OneWingedAngel pop out of his dead body]]. Luckily, he manages to drive out the aboniation.
