* ''Day of the Broken Fang'', a prequel to ''Fanfic/TheElementsOfHarmonyAndTheSaviorOfWorlds'', shows that this is what brought about the end of [[Franchise/GIJoe COBRA]] -- Cobra Commander, being based on his more competent MarvelComics incarnation, was smart enough to leave the [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Decepticons]] alone. Serpentor, on the other hand, wasn't as bright; driven by an egotistical desire to prove his dominance, the SuperSoldier ordered an attack on the Decepticons' main base with a slew of untested weapons, just because Doctor Mindbender assured him that they'd work. Needless to say, the Decepticons were not only not harmed by the attack, but Megatron was so pissed that he ordered a counter-attack that [[CurbStompBattle wiped COBRA off the map]] (literally, in the case of Cobra Island), with only a handful of survivors escaping the massacre (including the Commander, who had [[OhCrap realized what was coming]] and [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere fled in time]]).

* After being sent back in time in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12151205/1/God-s-Gambit God's Gambit]]'', Lelouch makes a point of warning the Blood of the Samurai that Britannia knows where they are and that Cornelia will becoming for them first as they're the largest resistance group they have a definitive location for. Despite this and one of their leaders insisting that they should take steps to prepare, the majority decides to instead "die with honor". The lone dissenting leader calls them out on the fact they're simply too proud to accept help from someone who's accomplished more in a week than they have in seven years and leaves, taking several of his subordinates with him.

** Daphne insists Hermione come with her to heal a dying unicorn despite them both knowing it's being hunted by Voldemort and using a Sense Danger spell that tells them they're currently in mortal peril. After they (barely) escape, Harry lectures them for risking their lives over a unicorn. Unlike the troll on Halloween, where they faced a dangerous but manageable threat to save a classmate, here they faced the most dangerous dark wizard alive to save an animal.

* Twice in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11574569/1/Dodging-Prison-and-Stealing-Witches-Revenge-is-Best-Served-Raw Dodging Prison and Stealing Witches]]'' John Potter pulls off an incredibly stupid stunt that nearly kills him (and others the second time).
** First, after the troll on Halloween is crippled and barely dragging itself along the ground, he leaps at it and casts a blasting spell at point blank range. Not only was it completely unnecessary but he's badly injured as a result. The girls who crippled the troll consider it the stupidest thing they ever saw.
** Second, upon coming across a necromantic ritual site, John starts casting in an attempt to destroy it. Doing so revives the Whomping Willow inferius there which nearly kills him, Neville, Draco, and Theodore Nott. Afterwards Draco tells him that introducing new magic to a ritual is literally the last thing you should do.

* In the LostForever ''Future of Despair'' comic, Panne fits in through and through. Because "having to give birth to your and Henry's child in isolation per (fanon) Taguel costumes" should '''not''' equal to "stupidly running away from a mostly safe CASTLE to the nearby WOODS all alone and thus getting yourself [[HumanPincushion skewered with arrows]] by a bunch of dumb hunters who didn't know better". WhatAnIdiot!
** It's even worse when you recall the now also LostForever notes on said "fanon" costumes. These instincts that lead Taguel moms to seek for "complete isolation" when giving birth are supposed to be ''completely irresistible and unrestrainable'', so [[UnfortunateImplications they imply that]] ''every'' Taguel mother is pretty much WIRED to be TooDumbToLive - not only they could potentially run into hunters like in Panne's case, but they deny themselves any support in case of pre/current/post-birth complications for herself and her baby/babies. ''Double'' WhatAnIdiot!

* A group of Afghan fighters in ''[[http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-31640-7/TattleTail%2bMy%2bCopy.htm My Copy]]'' decide it would be a good idea to [[ShootingSuperman shoot at]] Lilith aka Destroyer aka a female clone of TheJuggernaut. To make things worse, she's currently fighting a group of demons who had been previously killing them, but they decide to stop shooting the demons trying to kill them and start shooting the woman saving them.

* Danzo really should have thought more about his decision to abduct not-quite-four-years-old Kobayashi Hikaru and deliver him to Orochimaru in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11557398/7/The-Road-to-Ruin The Road to Ruin]]''. Even if Hiruzen didn't decide to stop him pulling the bullshit, he failed to consider two things. First of all, letting the kid who helped to save the Hyuuga Clan Heiress from a kidnapping vanish into the unknown isn't going to fly. Two, the kid's parentage by his mixed-blood mother means he's a member of the Uchiha and Yamanaka Clans, and both are already irked by the fact Hikaru wasn't identified sooner. And even if ''they'' refused to help, ''Hatake Kakashi'' wouldn't quietly stand by and let his newfound son be taken away from him.

* In ''FanFic/OzinIkebukuroLand'', a crossover between ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' and ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'', the universally despised "father" of [[TomatoInTheMirror Oz Vessalius]] shows up when Oz is feeling most confident, (having used his chain to follow Jack there and prevent him from destroying this world too) and decides now is the best time possible to, in front of a large amount of people, start berating Oz and calling him a thing. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Mikado Ryuugamine starts telling him off for it]] and Kida Masaomi gets a little unnerved, but this moment really applies when he starts talking to Shizuo, telling him to stop hanging out with such a filthy beast.

* ''FanFic/ThisBites'':
** Cross's thoughts on why one of the Baroque Works moles in the Royal Army tattooed the company's emblem on his shoulder. The defeated soldier says it was a combination of a lot of alcohol, a lot of boredom, and the fact that nobody is supposed to know about Baroque Works in the first place.
** Spandam. [[spoiler:The man kept a ''black book'' for [=CP9's=] operations just to stroke his own ego. The fact that he hid it in a safe doesn't detract from this -- the book shouldn't even ''exist'', seeing as [=CP9=] is a covert black ops unit whose own existence isn't even officially recognized as far the World Government is concerned. All reports should have been summarily destroyed once confirmed. Once Cross finds it, it becomes the whistleblowing equivalent of a Golden Transponder Snail.]]
