* ''Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue'': There's one episode when a young girl's mom is captured by monsters. When the little girl asks for another woman's help, [[ArbitrarySkepticism the older woman says that there's no such thing as monsters.]] This was midway through the season, after dozens of monsters had attacked the city. Not to mention that just a [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace few years ago]], Earth was temporarily taken over by monsters. And this was the team-up episode, confirming that, yes, the last seven seasons of monster attacks did happen. Not to mention this girl says her mother has been kidnapped. It shouldn't matter if she says it's a monster or human -- her mom was kidnapped and the woman walks away giving no help, which is insanely cruel. It's with good reason that [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] named this lady '''"DUMBEST PERSON IN POWER RANGERS EVER."'''

** {{Red S|hirt}}quad ends up on a ''Defiant''-class ship behind enemy lines during a training mission, and the actual officers are promptly killed, leaving the cadets in command. The ranking cadet, naturally, decides they should just run the ship themselves, despite having ample opportunities to get home. While this in itself is dumb, he later decides to pull a DavidVersusGoliath against a new type of Dominion battleship. Never mind that even getting close enough to potentially succeed was a one-way trip, he doesn't even seem ready to give up after the plan fails. Predictably, they all die.

** Special mention to the redshirt in "[[Recap/StarTrekS2E11FridaysChild Friday's Child]]", who opens negotiations with the native people by spotting, and shouting, "A KLINGON!" and drawing a gun on the man. Even if he'd not been briefed on local customs, "don't shoot the guests" is a fairly basic rule, so the knife to the chest should not have been a surprise.

** 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.
