** Senator Kinsey in the first season is an interesting case. At first in his episode, he looks like a [[LampshadeHanging Living Lampshade]], pointing every trope the series uses against the Stargate Program, then he gets through GenreSavvy to DangerouslyGenreSavvy to {{Genre Blind|ness}} and lingers in the last one until the last minutes of the episode, when he suddenly becomes Too Dumb to Live when he openly states that even if the Goa'uld do get to Earth, God will not let anything happen to America.

** The Ometepe somehow managed to [[UpToEleven outdo the cast of Samoa]] in terms of pure stupidity and RealityShowGenreBlindness. You're put on a show with someone who is one of the most ''[[CreatorsPet famous players]]'', known for being DangerouslyGenreSavvy. What do you do? Only Kristina and Francesca had the insight to ''get him out ASAP'', while everyone else ''shut off their brains'', voted out the only people who knew Rob could win the whole thing, and practically handed Rob the million. Much to the fandom's displeasure.

** Later in Season 6 some [[{{Mook}} mooks]] are forced to attempt to fight The Mountain, [[MightyGlacier an incredibly large and powerful man]] wearing [[MadeOfIron heavy plate armour]]. Their best shot involves hitting him square in the breastplate where the armour is strongest, which ends [[CurbStompBattle about as well as might be expected]].

** Season 3 Robb Stark like his father he ends up making quite a few bonehead mistakes that lead to his death from breaking his promise to Walder Frey, to beheading Rickard Karstark and in turn losing the Karstark family support which was a good chunk of his army, to blindly believing Walder Freys truce even though Walder clearly could not be trusted
** Season 6 Roose Bolton for as cunning as he is, should had know not to hug his clearly psychotic son Ramsay after he kept talking down to him and also kept reminding Ramsay that the newborn baby could become the heir of warden to the north over him.

* ''RoseRed'': Joyce. She ''knew'' from the start that the house had killed nearly two dozen people before everyone learned to stay away from it. She, unlike the others, knew that it wasn't dead but simply sleeping. She deliberately brought along multiple psychics for the express purpose of waking it up. Really, what happened to her in the house wasn't so much murder as much as assisted suicide.

* ''Series/PrimevalNewWorld'': There are a few minor characters who signed their own death warrant, but the cameraman from "Babes in the Woods" is the biggest example. When he finds an ''Ornitholestes'', he doesn't alert anyone, call the cops, run away, or do anything else seemingly rational. He takes a picture of it. ''With the flash on''. The ''Ornitholestes'' immediately disembowels him.

* Even most ''children'' know enough not to drink from a strange bottle without a label, but that's exactly what Squat and Baboo, Rita's two bumbling lickspittles did in the ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' episode "Dark Warrior" when she sent them to steam Trini's uncle's invisibility formula. (You really couldn't blame her for chewing them out ''this'' time. Fortunately for them, it only made them sick.)

** Not that the Rangers themselves don't fall into this occasionally. In the first HalloweenEpisode, Zordon ''specifically'' tells them what the rotted pumpkins are capable of face-hugging, yet all of them except Trini get too close when examining them, pretty much doing what he warned them not to. Fortunately for them, when it ''did'' happen, Trini had been smart enough to stay away.

* ''Series/PrisonBreak'': Veronica Donovan spends the first season being too dumb to live, culminating in walking alone straight into the house where the Vice President's secretly-alive brother is being held captive and ignoring him when he warns her not to let the door close. This doesn't end well.

** Neelix has a remarkable gift for doing suicidally stupid things, then surviving because the universe hates the crew of Voyager enough to continue inflicting Neelix upon them. In "Twisted", for example, his reaction when the ship is being distorted and rearranged so that nobody has any idea where any given corridor leads, with no detectable way to escape is to bumble around the corner in complete disregard of the buddy system and disappear.

While it doesn't get him killed, it does come close more than once: he nearly gets himself ''and'' Torres killed by disregarding climbing safety, and had his lungs stolen by Vidiians by wandering around a cave instead of sticking with the groups.
