* ''Series/MadTV'': Played with in one sketch featuring The Eracists, a children's vocal group dedicated to combating racism. In the sketch, they walk in on Yasser Arafat and Benjamin Netanyahu just as they're about to sign a peace treaty, and decide to sing them a song. Unfortunately, the obnoxious, {{Glurge}}-filled song only gets Arafat and Sharon angry at each other again, and they declare the peace treaty off. Upon hearing this, the Eracists offer to sing them ''another'' song... [[AnythingButThat and they promptly sign the peace treaty.]]

** Mossador takes it upon himself to slaughter one of the Sons of the Harpy after Daenerys resolves to give him a fair trail, and claims to have done so as a favor to her, clearly expecting to be praised for his efforts. This forces Daenerys into a SadisticChoice between either abusing her power, or making a deep political and personal sacrifice. The end result; Daenerys loses a huge chunk of her loyal supporters, a massive riot breaks out, and Mossador loses his head.

** Varys:
*** The assassination attempt on Daenerys that he orchestrated was bungled, and Khal Drogo EXTREMELY pissed off, pushing him to start preparing an invasion of the Seven Kingdoms. This was almost certainly his planned result however, being part of the conspiracy backing the invasion.
*** An even more obvious one is him warning Olenna Tyrell about Littlefinger's ambition and trying to set up a marriage between Sansa and Loras. In retrospect, he just gave Olenna a glowing recommendation of the one man other than them, who was ruthless enough to pull off a regicide and serve as her partner-in-crime. This led to Joffrey's assassination, so not a great loss all in all.

** Season 7 can be summarized as "Tyrion Lannister Ruins Everything". Let's list his failures in order:
*** Proposes a military strategy that results in all of Daenerys's Westerosi allies being killed or captured.
*** Allows Cersei to play him in order to convince the heroes that she will join them against the White Walkers, giving her the chance to retake the continent.
*** Convinces Jon and Daenerys to send an expedition north to capture a wight. After it predictably goes horribly wrong, he then fails to dissuade Daenerys from bailing out their allies. This allows the Night King to gain access to an undead dragon. In short, Tyrion ''broke the wall'' for a scheme that was doomed from the start.

** Saving a wise woman from rape and then asking her to save the life of your husband has led to said husband winding up as an EmptyShell and your son to be stillborn.
** Despite liberating the slaves in Astapor and Yunkai, those two cities end up back in the hands of despots as soon as you move along. In Meereen, your negligent care of her dragons has caused collateral damage. Furthermore, your BlackAndWhiteMorality approach to punishing the Masters has resulted in the deaths of some of the more sympathetic political figures as well. Leaving your dragons unattended leads to the death of a three year old girl.

** In "Histories and Lore: Dragons", Maester Pycelle states that in Prince Aegon V Targaryen's final years, he became obsessed with dragons and burnt himself and several others in an attempt to hatch dragons at Summerhall. Bear in mind this is Maester Pycelle we are talking about, but the Summerhall disaster is mentioned numerous times in the Lore. In the books, he wasn't "obsessed" with dragons the way that his crazy older brother Aerion Brightflame was. Rather, from all the time he spent wandering Westeros with Ser Duncan, he became a populist reformer after he was crowned, raising taxes on the rich lords to ease the suffering of the peasants. This made him a lot of political enemies and the great lords of the realm started to oppose him at every turn. As the years went on and such frustrations mounted, he became honestly convinced that having a couple of dragons like Aegon the First did was the key to keeping all of the great lords in line and pushing through his reforms. He had nothing but good intentions, but they ended up killing him, his best friend, and his eldest son in the fire.

** Rhaegar Targaryen's love affair and elopement with Lyanna Stark ultimately led to the end of the Targaryen dynasty. His defeat at the Trident drove Tywin to turn on Aerys and sack King's Landing, which led to the deaths of his father, his children, the rape and murder of Elia, and the exile of his mother, brother, and unborn sister.
