** In Ravenscar Hollow, you find a bandit {{mook}} who begs you to free him from the Hagravens who have captured him and put him in a cage. When you do, [[UngratefulBastard he turns around and tries to mug you]]. Obviously the fact that you very likely just ''[[{{Badass}} killed three Hagravens single-handedly]]'' to get him out of there completely eluded him. Bandits in general would count seeing as they're mostly decked out in furs and armed with poorly-made iron weapons and all completely eager to take on a mighty hero who has a plethora of powerful magical artifacts and a suit of armor made from the bones of the various dragons they've killed. Similarly, [[SmugSnake the mad necromancer]] in Rannvieg's Fast who smugly explains how he's going to kill you while slowly walking away with his back to you. And then there's that fire mage coven who decided that Sunderstone Gorge, a massive cavern filled with pools of flammable oil, would be a good place to hole up and train...

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', there's Warden Kuril, who was supposed to give Shepard a prisoner he was holding, but instead decides to capture Shepard and hold him/her for ransom or sell him/her on the black market as a slave. Yes, he tries to take the galaxy's biggest {{Badass}} prisoner. Without even taking away their guns. Needless to say, it does not [[KarmicDeath end well for him]]. And Shepard still gets the prisoner s/he wants. The icing on the cake is Kuril boasting that the facility can easily handle three armed guests... he was wrong, of course, and things get worse when Shepard let Jack out. The only time he isn't this is when you see the precautions for keeping Jack imprisoned; she's shackled in cold storage and guarded by a trio of powerful MechaMooks. But that still wasn't enough!

** In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis'', the fat guy in the warehouse in the beginning of the game. His choices in this tough and horrifying ZombieApocalypse scenario are A) risk tagging along with the [[{{Badass}} highly competent and well-armed police officer]] and try to head for safety or B) tell said officer to go screw herself and instead try your luck hiding unarmed and alone in a shipping container in an unlocked warehouse. Guess which one he picks? Yep. Upon returning to the warehouse, you find that the shipping container has been broken into and not far outside it is the guy's lifeless corpse, being picked at by a pair of zombies.

** Lokir, the horse thief from the beginning. He runs, hands bound from a large collection of Imperial troops. With archers. And horses. There is no possible way he would have escaped. Perhaps justified in that it would be better to ''try'' rather than meekly walking to the chopping block, but Lokir doesn't seem to put that much thought into it, or do anything like zigzag, just runs in a straight line until a mildly competent archer shoots him.
** Also, Silus Vesuius wants to recreate [[ArtifactOfDoom Mehrunes' Razor]], the artifact of [[GodOfEvil Mehrunes]] [[OmnicidalManiac Dagon]], Daedric Prince of Destruction, due to his belief that the [[ReligionOfEvil Mythic Dawn]] of the previous game should be ''celebrated'' for nearly destroying the world.
*** Not to mention that he thinks he will be rewarded for assembling the pieces of the Razor when he's making you do all the work. Even the ''nice'' Daedric Princes don't hand out prizes for layabouts; Mehrunes Dagon decides that Silus can at least assist in testing your dedication in handling his weapon.
** Boethiah's cultists. What sort of sane person chooses to worship someone whose portfolio includes ''betrayal''? The second challenge for that quest includes you and the other cultists holding a Battle Royale to see who's most worthy to be Boethiah's Chosen, and the third is to track down her last Chosen and kill him because she doesn't think he's up to scratch anymore. No matter what you do, your chances of survival are poor.

** Speaking of [[StayInTheKitchen Eldoth]], he can potentially be killed by [[DoesNotLikeMen Shar-Teel]] if they are kept in the same party. Given the massive difference in fighting ability between Shar-Teel (an incredibly physically strong shieldmaiden-esque warrior woman) and him (a QuirkyBard), it could be considered death by failure to keep his mouth shut.

** "I should have hired those sellswords in the first place. Perhaps there's no need. This place is just a tomb, after all, and there are no obvious signs of habitation. It isn't as though the thousand-year dead will mind if I have a look around." Extract from Heddic's notes in Volunruud, found ''next to his corpse''. Obviously, [[OurWightsAreDifferent they did mind]].

** One Daedric quest involves you going along with someone to kill a giant. The person you're accompanying is a SmallNameBigEgo guy, who is hailed as brave and strong in his village for his previous fights against enemies. In reality, he's a DirtyCoward and tells ''you'' to go kill the giant... and after you do, he tries to kill you. Someone who just killed a ''giant'' relatively easily.

* In ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal'', one of the Galactic Ranger missions on Tyhrranosis involves them trying to deactivate a forcefield offscreen while you assault the Tyhrranoid forces. One of the Rangers suggests that another stick his finger in the transformer, and once he's convinced he does so and is vaporized, which also lowers the forcefield.



* You can play as someone like this in ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays''. This is a good thing, as doing so is both hilarious and leads to the [[BadEnding bad endings]] that made the game (in)famous.

** ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddysSisterLocation'' even just blatantly lampshades it. ''Twice''. First [[spoiler: Baby]] asks out loud what kind of person would willingly return to such a place. And later, the AI voice will complement that one of the traits they enjoy in a worker is the absence of a survival instinct.
