* Given that they're a RagtagBunchOfMisfits tasked with [[TimePolice defending time itself]], the LegendsOfTomorrow do this fairly often. In the episode [[Recap/LegendsOfTomorrowS2E5Compromised "Compromised"]], their mission to investigate a time anomaly in the White House during the Cold War goes south when [[Comicbook/BlackCanary Sara]] discovers Damian Darhk, [[spoiler: the man who will one day murder her [[Comicbook/BlackCanary sister]]]], is around and immediatly tries to murder him, leading to a fight between the team and White House secruity. She does again later in the same episode, giving Damian a BreakingSpeech that informs him of his own future, where he ends up [[Recap/ArrowS4E23Schism defeated]] and [[spoiler: killed by the GreenArrow]], causing him to [[spoiler: ally with evil time traveller Eobard Thawne/Reverse Flash, creating a much bigger threat to the timeline]].

** Obviously, the corporation behind the time machine in the first place, [[spoiler:as thanks to them the ''Hindenburg'' crashed a day later and only killed two people, thus affecting history]].
** The end of the pilot has Lucy at first thinking things are better as her sick mom is okay. [[spoiler:However, she then finds out that not only is she engaged to someone she's never met, but her sister Amy was never born.]]

** In the 2008 version of the show, our hero, under the advice of others, kills [[spoiler: Morgana]] for the "greater good". And although it's a DisneyDeath, when she comes back [[spoiler: it's made clear that this action is a major contributor to Morgana - up till now depicted as a good guy - going to the dark side.]]

* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'': In the 1998 series, the titular character does this by recruiting Lancelot as the king's champion, who manages to completely screw up the relationship between the king and queen and provide Mordred with just the opportunity he needs to start a war and attempt to take over. All because he misinterpreted the Lady's message (who was, of course, unnecessarily vague) and assumed Lancelot was the knight he needed. Turns out it was his son Galahad. You know, the son who is now an orphan because his father abandoned him and his mother committed suicide.

* Starfleet officer turned Maquis leader Eddington is captured before the Maquis are wiped out by the Dominion. Freed to help on a mission, Eddington argues that his friends died because he wasn't there, saying the Maquis had the Cardassians beaten and about to achieve victory. Sisko fires back that all the Maquis did was make the Cardassians desperate enough to join the Dominion and thus stronger than ever.

* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'': Nice job figuring out Cromartie's plan, Sarah. Go ahead, [[UnwittingPawn call John and warn him Cromartie is after him]]. Wait, is that a phone tap... into the local cellular tower... oops.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'':
** In the penultimate episode of season 1, Fitz - knowing that he and Simmons are about to be executed regardless of what they do - uses an EMP pulse to disable The Clairvoyant's life support system, [[TakingYouWithMe nearly killing him]]. Unfortunately, this leaves [[DarkChick Raina]] to inject her dying leader with an unstable, untested cocktail of drugs she was halfway through preparing for him... which makes him super-strong and ''extremely'' insane.
** In the season 2 premiere, we learn that Simmons [[spoiler:left S.H.I.E.L.D. because she thought Fitz's recovery from the brain damage he sustained would progress better if he didn't become dependent on her]]. Unfortunately, this backfires ''hard'': [[spoiler:Fitz is literally unable to cope with her leaving, having a complete breakdown that ends with him [[ImaginaryFriend hallucinating a version of Simmons]] that he relies on for companionship, support and assistance. Oh, and the effects of his brain damage - already more severe than he realises - are getting worse as well, possibly because of his breakdown, possibly because Simmons ''was also his medic'' and there doesn't seem to be anyone else working towards his recovery]]. This is later subverted when it turns out [[spoiler: Simmons was actually infiltrating HYDRA]] and Coulson did not want to risk revealing this information to anyone else.
** In the midseason finale of season 3, Coulson defeats [[spoiler: Ward]], the HYDRA agent who betrayed Coulson and his team, became a major adversary of Coulson's, killed numerous S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, tortured and seriously injured [[spoiler: Bobbi]], tried to have [[spoiler: May's ex-husband Dr. Garner]] assassinated, and murdered [[spoiler: Rosalind Price, the woman Coulson was in love with]]. Faced with the option of abandoning him to an almost certain death on a barren planet or killing him right then and there, [[spoiler: he choses the latter]]. This allows [[spoiler: Hive, an Inhuman so dangerous, his own kind banished him to another planet, to assimilate Ward's corpse and return to Earth]], as well as accomplishing HYDRA's primary objective of [[spoiler: bringing Hive back]].
