* In ''Videogame/YuGiOhReshefOfDestruction'', the ritual to revive Reshef involves sacrificing the spirits and negative energies of defeated duelists. Meaning all those duels you fought in the game were helping him... as well as the duels you likely lost to get that far.

* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} ends with the destruction of the [[Macguffin Right Eye of the World]] as it used to revive [[GodIsEvil Jubileus, the creator]]. In VideoGame/{{Bayonetta 2}} we discover that while destroying the Right Eye was needed to destroy Jubileus, it upset the [[BalanceOfGoodAndEvil light and darkness]] because the right eye controls all the light in the mortal world, and without it, [[HellOnEarth demons are free to wreck havoc]]. [[spoiler:The destruction of the Right Eye is later corrected when the past version Father Balder, the [[BigBad villain]] from the first game, who turns out [[LightIsGood was good all along]] is brought to the present day. And since he is the [[ElementalEmbodiment physical manifestation of the Right Eye]], balance is briefly restored. However, [[BigBad Loptr]] needs both the Right Eye, and Left Eye to fullfill his plans. So [[BigGood Loki]] destroys the two eyes and gives their power to humanity, maintaining the balance]].

** Happens in the Mage Origin, where you help your friend escape and destroy the only means the Templars have of tracking him, as he's suspected of practicing forbidden BloodMagic and is facing down [[FateWorseThanDeath the Rite of Tranquility]], which renders the subject an EmptyShell. It's only when you get caught that it turns out that he ''did'' learn blood magic and has no compunctions about hurting people to get away.



** And then, there's ''Videogame/DragonAgeII''. For Hawke to accidentally start a chain of events that would somehow threaten the world is practically a OncePerEpisode kind of thing. That idol you recovered from the Deep Roads? It drives the captain of the Templars insane and inadvertently causes the rest of the plot, on top of starting the Red Lyrium plague that's threatening to consume it in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition''. Trying to be chummy with both the Chantry and the Qunari throughout Act 2 is what ultimately leads to the Kirkwall Rebellion, in which countless are slain and the Viscount is beheaded... then, Hawke's attempt to set things right ends up starting ''the Mage-Templar War'', which would go on to sweep across Thedas causing unprecedented damage! Oh, and just for dessert, in the DLC, he accidentally helps [[spoiler:Corypheus]], ''Videogame/DragonAgeInquisition''[='=]s satanic BigBad, escape from its prison!

For Hawke to accidentally start a chain * Near the end of events ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' you gather the components that would somehow threaten Anders claims he needs to finally separate him and Justice/Vengeance.

Congratulations Hawke, you just helped a terrorist murder innocent people in order to start a war. Of course, it's also a no-win situation due to extreme use of ''StupidityIsTheOnlyOption'': you can't prevent this from happening no matter how you behave.]]

the Kirkwall Rebellion, in which countless are slain Primeval Thaig and the Viscount is beheaded... then, Hawke's attempt to set things right ends up starting ''the Mage-Templar War'', cursed lyrium idol.

* The post-credit scene in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' reveals that [[spoiler:it was Solas who gave Corypheus the Foci, as he was too weak to use it on his own. Exactly what he was trying to accomplish is left ambiguous, but Corypheus betrayed him and took the orb for himself, which kickstarted practically every major conflict in the game.]]
** He has a bit of a problem with this. The ''Tresspasser'' DLC later reveals that [[spoiler: millennia ago, Solas created the Veil separating the Fade/Realm of Dreams from material reality, in order to seal away the Elvish Gods who would otherwise have destroyed the world. Turns out that in the context of a civilization whose technology, healthcare, and civil infrastructure was all rooted in use of and connection to the Fade, this was an ''insanely bad idea'', and the elves are ''still'' slaves and refugees reeling from it thousands of years later.]] Naturally, he plans on doing something to correct this, since he is rightfully horrified by the ramifications of his actions... and freely acknowledges that correcting his previous "nice job breaking it hero" error will ''also'' ruin everything, destroying the current civilization and populace. Dread Wolf, ''please'' just [[UnwantedAssistance stop trying to help]]!

** It is only this trope if you don't agree with Anders. If you do, however, this is just a rather extreme way to start a much-needed revolution.
*** Though even then, some plan that allowed the ''mages'' to be the ones to strike the first blow instead of being forced onto the defensive might have been preferable.

*** StupidityIsTheOnlyOption is used A LOT. It's bloody obvious that the Fairy Godfather is the bad guy if you're at all GenreSavvy, but you have to screw up so there's a proper sequel.

* ''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.
