* ''Series/BurnNotice'': How dumb is Jason Bly in the 6th season finale? Dumb enough to divulge the fact that he is a police officer on a sting operation to a random security guard. He becomes Ludicrous Gibs almost immediately. Though, to be fair, our normally Genre Savvy main character, does not make any effort to shut him up.

** Eddard Stark has become emblematic of this. What do you do when you find out the queen's been shtupping her twin brother? Tell her, of course! Littlefinger tells you not to trust him? Trust him completely! He also really should have listened to Renly's suggestion about raiding the castle and taking Joffrey hostage after Robert dies in order to stop the Lannisters. No wonder his head ended up on a pike. This is also TooCoolToLive. Eddard may be the ''only'' character on the show to behave honorably at all times. His big mistake is he assumes others will do the same.
*** In Eddard's defense, ''not'' giving the queen advance warning will result in the king killing her or ordering her killed... which would touch off a massive civil war ''anyway'', given who her father is. Add in that giving her sufficient warning to get out of dodge also avoids the execution of her children, two of whom were actually innocent, and Eddard is not ''quite'' a total idiot for combining pragmatism and compassion here. He is still quite careless in not realizing that the queen is not as powerless as he estimates she is, and has options other than 'using the advance warning time to flee before the hammer comes down'.

** Brandon Stark. Charging to King's Landing and insulting the Prince in earshot of the {{Pyromaniac}} Mad King after Rhaegar kidnapped Lyanna Stark was probably not a good idea. The highly biased opinion of Petyr Baelish in the History and Lore videos of his unfortunate rival:
--> '''Baelish:''' Who's the greater fool? The Mad King or the man who reasons with him?

** Basically every decision they make dealing with A. Let's not tell the police about being stalked. Oh, look, they now have a video that could be evidence in a murder case, let's not make copies when they know A's been breaking into their homes and stealing their stuff.
** All of them have taken another level in season 3, but Hanna has to take the cake at the moment. She's already a suspect in Maya's death. Naturally, she then proceeds to cut herself with Maya's knife and get her blood all over a bag of Maya's things.

* In ''Series/BoardwalkEmpire'', an office bully piles on several months of mistreatment by yelling abusive taunts at George Mueller [[spoiler: aka Agent Van Allen]] in front of the whole office, until he inadvertently hits on Mueller's BerserkButton by bringing up his wife. This earns him [[RageBreakingPoint a scalded face with a hot iron that Mueller is holding in response]]. While taunting an increasingly angry and slightly-crazed looking man holding a hot iron [[WhatAnIdiot is perhaps not the smartest move ever made]], the bully probably wasn't anticipating this reaction given months of Mueller's passive acceptance of his mistreatment. This trope ''really'' starts to kick in, however, when the bully tracks George down months later with a couple of friends and tries to get even, beating the guy up despite Mueller, recognising that he's about to snap, pleading with him to stop. Despite having evidence ''literally burned into his face'' that this man is unpredictable and capable of very sudden acts of brutality and violence, the bully and his friends continue to beat up on him. They probably shouldn't have have been too surprised, then, [[spoiler: when George once again snaps, produces a gun, and shoots all three of them dead.]]

* In the final episode of ''Series/WolfHall'', Mark Smeaton is bitter after Anne Boleyn publicly puts him down, and claims to Thomas Cromwell that they've had an affair to show that lowborn guys like him can seduce queens. Admitting such a thing is treason already, but Cromwell has been looking for a way to build a case against Anne--which Smeaton doesn't realize until the doors lock behind him. By the time Cromwell and his apprentices are done terrifying him, Smeaton has named every man in court as a lover of Anne's, and Cromwell cherrypicks his enemies off the list. (It's also clear that Cromwell knows Smeaton was lying about sleeping with Anne.)

* ''Series/RobinHood'': [[TheScrappy Kate]]. She abandons the outlaws in order to try and rescue her brother on her own. She tries to cut a deal with Guy of Gisborne. She blunders into fights without a weapon. She mouths-off at a tax collector. She refuses to follow Robin's (perfectly reasonable) orders. When an entire room full of outlaws, nobles, and castle guards are searching for Prince John's crown, she grabs it and begins waving it above her head, yelling: "I've got it! I've got it!" She interrupts a peaceful protest in order to scream abuse at the soldiers and dare them to kill her. She joins the outlaws despite having no useful skills whatsoever, and doesn't show much interest in acquiring such skills either. (Like learning self-defense, or at least some medicine.) She wears an ankle-length dress in a forest. She's ''the only female character to survive the show! Gah!!''
