* WesternAnimation/{{Trolls}}: Quite honestly, most of the Trolls qualify after escaping from the Bergens in the opening prologue, they establish a new home in the forest, but don't bother with ANY defenses or warnings against any possible future discovery by the Bergens. Similarly, Branch tells Princess Poppy that her loud singing and boisterous party celebrations might attract the Bergens, but she blithely dismisses his warnings with terrible consequences.

* Gene and the other Nicelanders from ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' have their town in danger of being destroyed, thanks to the eponymous VillainProtagonist, [[TheVillainMakesThePlot who makes the plot in their world work]], leaving them. To clarify, Ralph is a PunchClockVillain, [[MeanCharacterNiceActor playing the bad guy]] in ''Fix-It Felix, Jr.'', with the Nicelanders as the [=NPCs=]. However, Ralph and [[NiceGuy Felix]] are the only ones who even seem aware of the fact that Ralph is the most important asset of the game. Without him, the game literally won't function, which will cause the game to be decommissioned, which will make every resident either dead or homeless. Instead of respecting this, or even trying to be personable to Ralph, the {{Jerkass}} [[IronicNickname Nicelanders]] shun him and are generally mean to him, which eventually leads to Ralph leaving the game to try to prove that he can be a good guy. Not only does this mean that Ralph isn't in the game (which, again, is ''vitally important''), but by the time he comes back the game is only a few hours away from being unplugged, and it's too late for his return to make any difference because in the meantime [[ChronicHeroSyndrome Felix]] has vanished into ''Sugar Rush'' while trying to find Ralph to bring him back. WhatTheHellTownspeople indeed.

* ''Disney/{{The Jungle Book}}'': Mowgli, especially during his second encounter with Kaa, where ''knowing'' that Kaa wants to eat him, still thinks that Kaa wants to help him, and looks into his eyes long enough to be hypnotized. If Sherk Khan hadn't shown up, Mowgli would have been dead.

** This is a rare ''justified'' example, though, because Grave of the Fireflies was originally a novel, and the novel was written by a WWII survivor named Nosaka. Seita is an AuthorAvatar of Nosaka, and Nosaka was torn up with guilt that in real life, he believes he really did [[spoiler:indirectly cause his sister to die of malnutrition]].
** In addition, the authorial intention from both the director of the film and writer of the novel meant for Seita to be viewed as a spoiled teen. In several interviews, both said that Seita is a prideful teen who could not endure minor blows to his ego that many others of his generation would have endured (they jabbed at the teens of the '80s in the same interview, saying Seita acted like youths of the current day), and turned against rest of the world which resulted in tragedy. In another interview, the director went as far as to say that the widowed aunt's words were not particularly cruel considering the situation and Seita killed his sister trying to to achieve an impossible fantasy [[note]]Interview in Animage May 1988 edition[[/note]]. It can even be argued that Seita was bit of a spoiled UpperClassTwit who refused to study or work even as his cousins did, as Seita's father was a high ranking naval officer who commanded a war ship, and the relative wealth Seita grew up in can be glimpsed in the family's luxury goods such as the piano.

* In ''Anime/GraveOfTheFireflies'', the main character, Seita, [[BreakTheCutie endures incredible hardships with his sister during and after WWII]]. Most of that hardship is a result of him running out on his kinda-mean-but-not-that-bad aunt's house to live in a cave. One of the reasons the aunt resents him is that instead of working, he goofed off during the day. And instead of getting a job, he runs off with his toddler sister. Even when things become so bad that their lives are threatened, instead of simply asking his aunt to take them back, he sticks it out, [[spoiler:: while his sister eats mudballs out of hunger. And then both he and his sister die.]]

* The dodos seen in ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'' qualify: when the protagonists first encounter them, they're at regiment strength. After one rhubarb with the pathetic sloth Sid, they manage to topple off a precipice. Every last one.
