** Said core was also allegedly the fluid catalytic cracking unit which made shoes for orphans, leading to GLaDOS literally saying this line. Okay, so it may not really have been that, but still a hillarious quote nonetheless.



** Ironically, when [=GLaDOS=] actually says this, it is not an example of the trope... it is said directly after you destroy one of her vital parts in the final boss battle. She feebly tries to convince you that "it made shoes for orphans".

* ''VideoGame/OdinSphere'' is the story of five different heroes who ''completely and royally screw everything up''. Cornelius escapes the netherworld and allows [[spoiler:the evil and completely batshit insane undead King Valentine, who plans to bring about the end of the world]], to escape with him. Gwendolyn rescues her husband from the Queen of the Dead, [[spoiler:and by killing her sets free an insane, nearly-unstoppable undead monster to take control of the Underworld and attack the world of the living]]. Mercedes saves her kingdom by destroying the Demon King's most powerful weapon [[spoiler:that was made specifically to fight against the forces of the apocalypse]]. Oswald kills two of the last four dragons in the world, who might have been able to help, and in the process completely ruins Velvet's attempt at keeping the ring that can control the doomsday machine safe and out of anyone's hands. In their defense, there's a lot of BecauseDestinySaysSo involved.

Velvet goes through all the trouble of trying to stop Armageddon, but in failing to kill [[spoiler:Ingway after he uses the Darkova curse, she allows one of the Five Disasters of Armageddon to come into being which also causes the previously mentioned undead monster to eventually go on a rampage]]. In their defense, there's a lot of BecauseDestinySaysSo involved.

** Uplifting a primitive species with the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy "Militarist"]] and/or [[AbsoluteXenophobe "Xenophobe"]] ethics is also something that could quite easily come back and bite you in the ass.

* ''VideoGame/LegendOfMana'' might as well be called 'Unintended Consequences: The Game'. For example: In the Jumi storyline, [[spoiler: the player character's actions directly allow Sandra to steal almost all the Jumi cores she needs to summon the Giant SpaceWhale [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere From Nowhere]] which has simply wanted to ascend all along. Sandra thought that it would create a Teardrop Crystal. Nyooope. Thankfully, the final twist lets the player get away with it.]]

* The protagonist Lazarus Jones from ''{{VideoGame/GhostHunter}}'' basically couldn't keep his hands to himself and pressed a switch which freed all the captured ghosts in the ghost array (kinda like the original ''{{Film/Ghostbusters}}''). Then poor Jones had to take up the job of re-capturing them.

* ''VideoGame/BravleyDefault'' in spades. The main characters set out to awaken the four crystals across the world in hopes to stop a great catastrophe from happening. [[spoiler: Turns out doing that CAUSES said catastrophe as awakening each crystal chains the world to the last. The party awakens several different worlds, allowing the ''big bad'' to show up and destroy all the worlds one by one.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'', messing around with certain late-game technologies like jump drives and sentient AI can have [[ApocalypseHow truly]] [[NegativeSpaceWedgie disastrous]] [[RobotWar consequences]] for the rest of the galaxy.
