* In ''Anime/YuGiOhTheDarkSideOfDimensions'''s prequel manga, Seto is so focused on seeing and dueling Atem that he listens to Sera and tries to break into ''the afterlife'' using nothing but his own brainwaves and without any sort of protection. It would have killed him if Mokuba hadn't intervened.

** Majority of the Team Summer A candidates. Despite being trained from birth onward to survive in nature and be self-reliant, they don't take the Final Test seriously and think it's not really dangerous. They quickly fall victim to various traps or dangers in nature, simply because they didn't use their heads.
*** Special mention goes to the girls who bullied Ayu. They make her go with them and use her as a sort of maid, making her cook for them every time. When they decide they want to eat something with chopsticks, they choose to make them out of branches from a poisonous tree. Despite these girls having the same knowledge about plants as Ayu, they make the chopsticks, eat and die from the poison.

** Carta Issue had already met Tekkaden in battle, where they proved that they don't believe TalkingIsAFreeAction and attacked her while she was in the midst of a speech and disrupted her men's AttackPatternAlpha mainly by ignoring it. She's sent to fight them again--and instead of simply destroying the train they're on, she stops them and tries to issue a formal challenge to a three-on-three duel of honor. To no one's surprise but her own, Mika attacks her before she's finished talking. When one of her men hangs around ''outside'' his cockpit yelling about the lack of honor, he's turned into a red smear in the snow as Mika proceeds to kill all three of them.

*** Their plan to take on the New World involved using Luffy's [[TheDreaded reputation]] to recruit an army of powerful pirates, then sending them out to take out any danger that the aforementioned reputation didn't scare away first. This might seem like kind of a clever plan at a casual glance, but the New World is loaded with pirates who still consider Luffy a rookie, and could honestly care less about his accomplishments up to that point; not to mention there are numerous obstacles and dangers that are far too much for any pirate that was available on Saobody at the time, or simply require knowledge or skill rather than muscle to navigate. Not only that, but they also attracted the attention of [[TheStarscream pirates who were only joining so they could kill Luffy unawares in order to boost their own reputation.]] Sentomaru, sent by the Marines to arrest them because their informants had mistaken them for the real deal, actually [[LampshadeHanging called them morons for impersonating the Straw Hats]] after mauling the fake Luffy.
*** What added to their misfortune is that around the same time they started recruiting, ''the real ones'' were about to reunite and journey into the New World. Really, a combination of bad luck and stupidity ensured that the Fake Straw Hats were never going to make it out of Sabaody.

** {{Idiot|Hero}} Protagonist Jaden/Judai nearly dooms the world by handing over the key to a KillSat, then expecting that Season's BigBad, Sartorius/Saiou, to not activate it until after defeating Judai in a Duel first. The fact that said BigBad didn't attempt to duel him first was a shock to many fans, as Saiou was the probably the first GenreSavvy villain in ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' Though to be fair, Saiou ''did'' have [[TheRival Edo/Aster]] in a deathtrap over a pit of lava and was threatening to kill him if Judai didn't give him the key, so Judai didn't have much choice.

** The Tartaros arc features the titular guild, whose members are legitimate demons, trying to activate a powerful magic. To unlock this magic's seal they need to kill certain members (current and former) of the Magic Council, but don't know which ones, so they just opt to kill them all until they succeed. There is one, however, who is subverted to their purposes and helps them find the last former member with a seal. To save the trouble of tracking him down, the traitor takes the last part of the seal into himself, with the intent to give it to someone else so they can be killed and break the seal. He tells Tartaros' members this after doing it to himself but ''before'' doing it to anyone else. He's immediately RewardedAsATraitorDeserves.

** IdiotHero Monkey D. Luffy. He's a genius when it comes to fighting, and no fool when it comes to friendship, but this trope when it comes to almost anything else. Perhaps the most notable instance is in the Alabasta arc: Crocodile set a trap for them in his casino…by setting up a sign that directed [=VIPs=] to the left and pirates to the right. Luffy, who [[BadLiar could not tell a convincing lie to save his life or anyone else's]] pre-TimeSkip, goes right, and winds up in a [[PowerNullifier Sea Prism Stone]] cage.

** The Fake Straw Hat Pirates. Notably, they picked fights with members of the actual Straw Hats despite being very weak (though to be fair, Usopp's wanted poster doesn't show his face[[note]]but instead shows his alter ego, Sogeking[[/note]], both he and Nami had changed looks during the TimeSkip, and Luffy was wearing a ridiculous PaperThinDisguise, so they hadn't recognized them) and tried to hunt them down after being casually defeated and mauled by them.

** Loly and Menoly are extremely jealous of Aizen's interest in Orihime, so they torture her behind her prison guardian's back (Ulquiorra). When they're mauled by Grimmjow, Orihime heals them, and they go after her again, taking her hostage in front of both Ichigo and Ulquiorra. When Yammy gets involved, Loly tries to kill him even though she's only a fraccion.

** The fiancée of the above-mentioned, recently murdered F.B.I. agent figures out crucial information on the Kira case and then decides to trust [[AloneWithThePsycho Light]] with it after he's been acting creepy, following her around, and asking "HaveYouToldAnyoneElse?" Incidentally, she decides to trust Light because he reminds her of L, lampshading that the two are NotSoDifferent.
** Someone who uses the name of Kira to pad his own pockets, knowing that Kira is a vengeful god of justice without much sense of mercy. Demegawa? Can you say [[SubbingVersusDubbing "SAKUJO"/"DELETE?"]][[note]]SAKUJO means something like 'eliminate' or 'erase'. It's the catchphrase of Mikami, the 4th Kira. [[NoIndoorVoice All caps are a must]].[[/note]]

** Dr. Gero created Androids 17 and 18, who were already rebellious teenagers when they were converted into being far stronger than he whom he had no reliable way of controlling. Then he converted himself into an android, only to base his design on the weaker models. Not content with that level of suicidal behavior, he continues to berate and threaten them despite the fact that he can't control them. His death came quickly.
