** In ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen,'' Wolverine goes and gets himself captured by going in alone. [[spoiler: Trask analyzes his powers, which leads to future beastlike Sentinels with WolverineClaws and a HealingFactor.]] Especially surprising (and satisfying) because otherwise the series takes Wolverine's CanonSue status UpToEleven. ''The only one typically allowed to do anything right'' (except Nightcrawler in his solo episodes) is the one who had a big hand in screwing up the future due to ''his own bullheadedness.''

** The "Gaang" leaving to do their own things before meeting the Kyoshi Warriors. Otherwise, they would've realized that it was [[DressingAsTheEnemy Azula's group instead]] and they wouldn't have learned about the invasion plan.



** [[IdiotHero Aang's]] decision to embrace desire over duty has doomed many. The first was at the start of the war when he chose fun and games over becoming the Avatar. This results in him running away, dooming his people. The second is at the end of the second season when he refuses to give up his feelings for Katarra in order to open the final chakra, [[spoiler: this results in him almost dying and the Fire Nation claiming Ba Sing Sae. Ironically he never really learns that choosing desire over duty usually leads to disaster.]] Some hero eh?
** The "Gaang" in general could've seen the Kyoshi Warriors and made sure that it was them. Otherwise, they would've realized that it was [[DressingAsTheEnemy Azula's group instead]] and they wouldn't have learned about the invasion plan.
