* In the {{P|layStation2}}S2 game ''{{VideoGame/Vexx}}'', you start off the game being told by an old man called Darby to collect Wraithearts to power the Rift to travel to new worlds. After you collect a certain number of hearts, it's revealed that [[spoiler:Darby is actually the Big Bad, Dark Yabu, in disguise, and had Vexx collecting Wraithearts for him so HE could use the Rift and unleash his pet Shadowraiths on all the worlds.]] Your objective remains the same, however.

** 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 DragonAge3. 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!

*** Even earlier than that, you can choose to take the elevator up to the Anomalous Materials main level. However, the elevator is malfunctioning, and falls to the bottom of the shaft, with 3 scientists stuck inside being reduced to LudicrousGibs as a result. [[note]] This is actually unavoidable: even if you're content with just breaking the door glass and taking the emergency ladder instead, it'll happen anyways. [[/note]]

** ''HyruleWarriors'', as part of its homage to the franchise as a whole, plays this dead straight. The heroes knowingly remove the Master Sword from the Sacred Grounds, although in fairness, Lana (an expert on the subject) assured them there were other failsafes on the evil contained there, so long as the sword was returned before they decayed completely. [[SarcasmMode Guess what they don't manage to do,]] [[HijackedByGanon and who comes back at full power?]]

** Khadgar is determined to avert this trope in ''Warlords of Draenor.'' Early in the ''Draenor'' storyline, the player releases Gul'dan, the ManBehindTheMan who was a direct cause of the events of the original ''Warcraft'' games, from imprisonment as a way to stop the Iron Horde's Dark Portal. At the time, Khadgar acknowledges this as an acceptable trade-off, but as the storyline continues his part of the plot focuses on tracking down Gul'dan and his minions before they can cause anything close to the havoc they're capable of.

** A bit more benign, but in ''VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon'', Professor E. Gadd had given away the portrait that King Boo was trapped in after the [[VideoGame/LuigisMansion first game]] at a garage sale, indirectly helping him escape and break the titular Dark Moon, causing the events of the game. AbsentMindedProfessor indeed.

* Red from ''{{Solatorobo}}'' tries to stop a gang of sky pirates stealing a warehouse in a sidequest (not the cargo of a warehouse but literally the entire building), but he [[IdiotHero completely forgets]] that destroying the air ship using [[StuffBlowingUp explosives would be counter productive]].
