* In ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'', in order to learn the whereabouts of your mortality, you must free the angel Trias from his imprisonment beneath Curst, a town populated entirely by liars and betrayers. Sounds good, right? After all, freeing an angel is a good deed, right? [[spoiler:Wrong. When you get back to Curst from your next destination, you discover that [[FallenAngel Trias]] has turned the entire town into one big human sacrifice, causing it to slide into the [[{{Hell}} prison plane Carceri]], where all of the inhabitants are being slaughtered by demons. Why? Because the lives of the townsfolk are a payoff that will allow him to raise TheLegionsOfHell and invade and conquer [[{{Heaven}} Mount Celestia]]. Wow, did you ever screw up.]]

** This might go without justification as Shepard deliberately releases all prisoners of a maximum security space station just to recruit a [[PsychoForHire peculiar]] squad member. Mind you, every single one of the prisoners were [[SerialKiller mentally unstable bloodthirsty psychopaths]], though they are almost all eventually recaptured.

* Happens to the titular character himself in ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'': Thanks to his greed for the Devil's treasure and making a wager for his and his brother Mugman's souls by playing a game of Craps against the Devil himself (in spite of his brother's warnings not to) and losing, they plead for their lives to be spared and are being forced to do his bidding by collecting the Soul Contracts of those who lost to him. Cuphead is truly the one who got them in a pickle in the first place.

* In the ''Series/{{Homeworld}}'' series, it's heavily implied that the only thing holding back the [[HornyVikings Vaygr]] was the [[TheEmpire Taiidan Empire]]. Then the Kushan had to go and kill TheEmperor, while LaResistance blew up the cloning facilities, destroying the Emperor's DNA samples and preventing any possibility of a legitimate heir to be grown. The Empire collapses, and, a century later, [[TheRemnant the remains]] of the Taiidani are absorbed into the Vaygr Armada.

* At the end of ''VideoGame/TheBureauXCOMDeclassified'', the XCOM manages to topple the Outsider Empire in TheSixties. Fast-forward five decades, and the resulting power vacuum has allowed an even worse enemy to grow, expand, and, eventually, attack Earth in ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' and, [[VideoGame/{{XCOM 2}} canonically]], win and enslave humanity.

**** Worse yet, breaking the Heart's enchantments leads directly to the Oblivion Crisis, because breaking the Heart is the same as breaking the Stone of the Red Tower (a CosmicKeystone), and weakens the barriers between Oblivion and Mundus.

** The Chozo effectively created the entire mess of the whole franchise with the titular Metroids. According to the Chozo Memories shown in ''VideoGame/MetroidSamusReturns'', a group of Chozo arrive at the planet [=SR388=] and encounter the planet's hostile wildlife and deadly X parasites. To combat them, the Chozo created the Metroids. While the Chozo succeeded, the Metroids turned against their masters. They sealed the Metroids underground in a hazardous purple liquid that put them and everything else in stasis while said liquid would harm anyone that entered it without showing the Chozo statues the Metroid DNA needed to drain the fluid. Not all Metroids were accounted for since the space pirates managed to obtain some and duplicate them to be used as weapons and energy storage. Had the Chozo simply fled the planet instead of creating the Metroids, the space pirates would have not obtained so much power.

** In ''VideoGame/SonicColors'', when Sonic destroyed Rotatatron/Globatron, an arm got lodged into a nearby structure, which turned out to be part of the mind control cannon. When Eggman tried to fire it, the cannon backfired. The resulting energy created two things: a Nega Hyper-Go-On black hole that consumed the amusement park and, if evidence is correct, [[VideoGame/SonicGenerations the primordial essence known as the Time Eater]]. Basically, Sonic caused ''SonicGenerations'' to occur by destroying the first boss of ''Colors''.
