* ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'':

* ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'': ''VideoGame/{{Ultima}}'':



** In the main ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' series, the Avatar does end up being responsible for the eradication of (almost) all human life on both Serpent Isle and Pagan, in ''VideoGame/UltimaVIIPartII'' and ''[[VideoGame/UltimaVIII 8]]'' respectively. Also, after [[VideoGame/UltimaIV the fourth game]], the king Lord British has the Codex Of Ultimate Wisdom raised from the underworld, which is the direct cause for the gargoyle invasion in ''VideoGame/UltimaVI''. The other games in the series are simply the revenge of some ally of the previous BigBad. ''VideoGame/UltimaIX'' does claim that the Avatar's quest for virtue in ''Ultima IV'' was what created the Guardian (BigBad of games [[VideoGame/{{UltimaVII}} 7]]-9), but ''U9'' is generally considered CanonDiscontinuity anyway.

* ''inFAMOUS 2'': During an attack on the Militia, Cole rescues Kuo from a hidden underground chamber, where she transformed into an Artificial Conduit. He uses his powers to free her from her bonds, but in doing so, he awakened the now superpowered Vermakk 88, letting loose through out New Marais. And as he rode the elevator with Kuo in his arms, Cole wonders if [[LampshadeHanging he had overdone it a bit]].

* In ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}} Mask of Arcadius'', when Captain Kayto Shields is on the fence about whether the Solar Alliance really has the best interests of Neutral Rim worlds like his home planet Cera at heart, the Alliance liaison officer Kryska Stares invites him to tour one of the planet Ongess’s orbital habitats with her so that he can see how the Alliance’s relief efforts are helping the people. This decision gets both of them captured by [[SpacePirate Cosette Cosmos]], leading the Alliance to mount a heavy-handed rescue operation in which they gun down civilians and guerilla fighters indiscriminately, including a child. This carnage, and Alliance Admiral Harold Grey’s willingness to cover it up, can convince Kayto that he cannot afford to trust the Alliance.

* ''{{VideoGame/Tales of Vesperia}}'' plays with this, actually, in that invoking the trope is ''entirely optional'' (thus, yes, {{Stupidity Is|TheOnlyOption}} ''[[AvertedTrope Not]]'' [[StupidityIsTheOnlyOption the Only Option]]). When the party collects the first Fell Arm in an optional sidequest, they decide to collect the rest (as is Franchise/}{{Tales|Series}} tradition) in order to keep the dangerous weapons from falling into the wrong hands. [[spoiler:Those wrong hands? The final boss, who, if you collect all of them, absorbs their power and ''gains an extra form'' that is seventeen levels higher and [[ThatOneBoss that much more difficult.]] And yes, once the sidequest is complete, it is necessary to beat him to finish the game and watch the ending. Nice job breaking it, [[ThisLoserIsYou player]].]]

** ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsV''In the game's backstory, after [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 the Celestial Being]]'s global armed intervention weakened Earth's military forces, [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED ZAFT]] saw this as an opportunity and declared war, starting the Earth-PLANT War.
** [[spoiler: Sagara Kaname]]'s introduction of [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Black Technology]] into the UC world not only led to the invention of Arm Slaves and Lambda Driver, but also caused [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam mobile suit technology]], such as Psycommu and Minovsky Craft, to advance far more rapidly than it did in the NCC world. Because of this, wars spiraled out of control in the UC world and Earth is on the brink of destruction.

* Upon defeating the Wall of Flesh, the boss of the underworld in ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'', you receive a message saying "The ancient spirits of light and dark have been released". Now, TheCorruption will spread like wildfire through the game world, and the only thing that can hold it at bay is another biome filled with rainbows and unicorns that is just as infectious and with creatures that are just as dangerous. Nice job breaking it, player.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', Link follows Zelda's instructions and manages to [[MacGuffinDeliveryService gather up all of the spiritual stones, the ocarina, and the Song of Time]] in order to pop open the Door of Time and draw the Master Sword... allowing Ganondorf to waltz in and plunder the Golden Land. Actually, you should really blame this one on the Master Sword, for not letting a {{kid|Hero}} be the Hero of Time and instead sealing him away for seven years while Ganondorf became King of Evil. Nice job breaking it, sword.
** And then, at the end of Ocarina of Time, Zelda sends Link back in time to his childhood to prevent Ganondorf's rise to power. This splits the timeline in two, and while Ganondorf ''is'' successfully thwarted in the "Child" timeline, Zelda ensures that the timeline she herself is in lacks a Hero, and as such dooms 90% of the population of her Hyrule to death by drowning in the Great Flood. Nice job protecting (your own) Hyrule, princess.

*** BigBad PhysicalGod Dagoth Ur has this going on. From his point of view and following his logic, he ''hates'' the Empire and blames the Tribunal for having "sacrificed the honor and dignity of the Dunmer race" when they acquiesced to Tiber Septim. In reality, it was only because HE cut the Tribunal off from their source of divine power in the [[CosmicKeystone Heart of Lorkhan]] that they were forced to surrender to the Empire. When the Tribunal was still at full power, they helped to repel multiple Imperial, Akaviri, and Daedric invasion attempts over the course of several millennia. And even then, Vivec managed to secure a number of concessions and autonomy for Morrowind that the other provinces did not get by handing over the Numidium. Unfortunately, you don't get the chance to point this out to Dagoth Ur.
