* The whole goal of the heroes in ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'' is to awaken the sleeping Great Spirit Mata Nui. Unfortunately, [[BigBad Makuta]] (who put Mata Nui to sleep in the first place) plays them all for [[UnwittingPawn Unwitting Pawns]]: he allows the heroes to succeed and during a window of opportunity in the revival commits GrandTheftMe, taking control of the body of a PhysicalGod and therefore also the world's very laws of nature. Nice Job Waking It, Heroes.

* In the ''AudioDrama/BigFinishDoctorWho'' drama ''The Lights of Skaro'', as Benny finds herself wandering through the ghosts of Dalek history, she meets a group of early Daleks who were going to destroy the last few Thals and then rest, content that - as there was no life on other planets - they were alone in the universe. Then the stranger came and helped the Thals defeat them. Suddenly, they knew there ''was'' life on other planets, some of it could time travel, and it was all as bad as the Thals. Great job, Doctor!

* In RolePlay/YuGiOhEastAcademy, we have a subtle example from Marcus during his Tag Duel with Denero. While his strategy is solid, it unfortunately has the unforeseen consequence of being indirectly responsible for Denero merging his mind with the Meteor and becoming more aggressive and unstable as a result.

And in less extreme but still unfortunate cases, RealLife examples can be cut and [[NoRealLifeExamplesPlease prohibited from a page]] if things get controversial enough. On that note, there's also the ExampleSectionectomy, which examples are either cut entirely or relegated to a separate area such as DarthWiki or the Discussion tab if things get nasty.

* During the development of {{Atari}}'s ''Pinball/{{Superman}}'' pinball, Creator/SteveRitchie and Creator/EugeneJarvis figured out how to use a guitar echo chamber to make a continuous background sound that intensified with the game action. For some reason, Atari management nixed the idea; Ritchie ended up using it on his next pinball, the top-selling ''Flash'' from Creator/WilliamsElectronics.
