* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Siegenthaler John Siegenthaler]], a very respected journalist who signed onto ThatOtherWiki with the greatest of intentions, but singlehandedly ended up ruining it FOREVER. In May of 2005, some anonymous loser added some false information to his page that said that he was a suspect in UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy's assassination. This error went unnoticed for five months. Then, someone informed Siegenthaler of the error. He created an account on Wikipedia to correct it, but the administrators didn't realize his intentions and kept reverting his corrections; they eventually blocked him. Also, by editing the article, he was in violation of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:COI the Wiki's Conflict of Interest guidelines]], which specifically prohibit people from editing articles about themselves or people close to themselves. Eventually, a shitstorm went down that led to the creation of several controversial Wiki policies, including [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:BLP Biographies of Living Persons]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:Oversight the Oversight feature]] (and its very first use was on the Siegenthaler article!), and registration being required to start new articles. Most haters of Wikipedia say this was when the wiki JumpedTheShark. And all John Siegenthaler wanted to do was correct an error. Nice job breaking it, hero!

* In the WhateleyUniverse, uber-mage Fey has stopped the Necromancer three times and defeated the supervillainess Hekate. Only just recently have we learned that every one of these battles has caused Fey to draw enough life energy from ley lines that she has caused ''ecological disasters'' each time. Oops.

* The second season of ''Podcast/TheBlackTapes'' ends on the reveal that the Axis Mundi, the place where a five part symphony had to be played to usher in the apocalypse is not Mount Ararat, as originally suspected, but [[spoiler: the Pacific Northwest Stories studio itself, and that the show has ''been'' playing that symphony on the show on the show via the Unsound and the other audio files Alex and Nic thought had been coming from someone they knew]].

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', team RNJR is fighting a Grimm that can possess objects. After losing an arm, it takes over a tree to replace it. Ruby pulls out an [[KillItWithFire incendiary round]] and sets the limb on fire... which only means the Grimm is now attacking them with a ''flaming'' tree arm.

** In the same vein, ''[[http://www.cracked.com/article_18658_6-movie-plots-that-could-have-been-solved-in-minutes.html 6 Movie Plots That Could Have Been Solved In Minutes]]'' has example of heroes making too much troubles for themselves and/or their allies when doing nothing at all (''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'', ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'') or the most mundane and trivial thing imaginable (''TheDaVinciCode'', ''Film/IRobot'', ''Film/SawI'', ''Film/NewMoon'', ''Film/{{Return of the Jedi}}'') would ''obviously'' work better.

*** [[spoiler: And third time's the charm; in Episode 6, Red Guy makes two blunders. First he starts pushing random buttons in an attempt to get rid of the teachers before they can hurt Yellow Guy, but all he does is cause the system to start randomly switching out teachers, which only frightens his friend. Then when he tries unplugging the machine, it seems like he somehow reset/restarted the universe, leading to the puppets starting it all over again (maybe)... though at the very least he saved Yellow Guy.]]

** This spills over [[TwoPartTrilogy into the following special]], ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee''. If the reviewers hadn't gone looking for the gauntlet then [[spoiler:[[CaptainPlanet Ma-ti]]]] would not have died, and subsequently would not have [[spoiler:merged with the Plot Hole]]. In doing so, [[spoiler:Ma-ti]] sets off a chain of events that leads to [[spoiler:the deaths of WebVideo/TheLastAngryGeek, [[Franchise/StarWars the Emperor]], [[Film/SupermanII Zod]], [[Film/BattlefieldEarth Terl]], and [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Mecha-Kara]]]].
