* The people in the mall in ''[[VideoGame/ChoiceOfGames Choice of Zombies]]''. They have no quarantine or even medical examination period of any sort, they don't post lookouts, and they insist everyone store guns and ammo separately. ''In the middle of a ZombieApocalypse''. Unsurprisingly, it turns out someone was infected and turns, then infects their whole medical ward.

* The first task you have in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'' is to search an Empire-occupied town for your missing fourth party member. Said town is filled with Imperial soldiers...and this comes just after the HopelessBossFight against the Empire's knights at the beginning of the game. Needless to say, if you choose to talk to them at that point, you won't be talking for much longer. [[spoiler:That is, unless you spent the last hour or so going barehanded against a lot of low-level monsters]]
** You can roam as free as a bird through the world map... But don't blame the game if you choose to not beeline from a town to another and get ambushed by monsters that will [[OneHitKill destroy your party in less than one turn.]]

** Lampshaded in DragonAge2 by Sergeant Joanna during the quest ''The Conspirators'': "But this is the Hero of Ferelden. Same one that defeated Loghain, an Archdemon, the Mother, and no doubt more. Who do you think will win?"

** Lampshaded by a character: "And people actually voluntarily attack you? Are they ''stupid''?"
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOriginsAwakening'': Bann Esmerelle and the other nobles conspiring to get rid of the Warden Commander if the Warden Commander is the Ferelden Grey Warden imported from Origins. They do this knowing fully that the Warden has both faced and claimed victory over including but not limited to: several dragons, an Archdemon, the Witch of the Wilds, a Pride Demon, a broodmother, and Tevinter slavers led by a powerful Magister. Not to mention he/she (with hardly any effort) dispatches bandit gangs on a regular basis, defeated a Fereldan war hero in one-on-one combat, stormed an Arl's estate and either killed several of the previously mentioned war hero's top knights, or escaped from the largest Fereldan prison while leaving dozens of corpses in his/her wake, and plows through countless numbers of Darkspawn while coming out with hardly a scratch.

** Ser Rylock manages a staggeringly impressive display in Anders's personal quest. She sets a trap for Anders and the Warden-Commander in the room ''after'' some high-quality mage robes and lyrium potions, using a force of only three Templars with no mage support, to attack four people, one of whom is not only the hero of Ferelden and a stone-cold dragon-killing badass but may well be the King or Queen (and if not, there's a significant chance they're a hero of the dwarven people). It's especially hilarious since Anders is outside her jurisdiction by this point ''anyway'' by virtue of being a Grey Warden, meaning that she's trying to cause an international incident or piss off the King of Ferelden by attacking someone who chews up small armies and spits them out in the name of recapturing someone she can't legally hold.

** And let's not forget the unnamed Neo Arcadian council in charge of Dr. Weil's punishment between the X series and VideoGame/MegaManZero. The man who singlehandedly was responsible for a conflict that killed 60% of mankind and ''90% of all reploidkind?'' Turned into a regenerating Reploid and exiled from the only populated city left on Earth to suffer. Because they put eight Judges ''he personally created'' in charge of the proceedings. Somehow no one realized that he could simply wait everything out for his plans to come into action, which he did and nearly screwed the world over on. In fact, one might as well say that humanity in general in the franchise are too dumb to live, starting with poorly handling Dr. Wily's constant world domination attempts and then truly coming into a neverending flux with their mix of discrimination and repeated ignorance involving Reploids. Like the whole [[VideoGame/MegaManX8 Copy generation of Reploids that could literally impersonate anyone they have in their data.]]

** Skie Silvershield in the first game. Just... '''Skie Silvershield'''... Especially when it comes to her BastardBoyfriend Eldoth, and, well... life in general.

** Some of Caesar's troops in his Fort fit this. If you play a female Courier, some will attempt to insult and belittle you. [[BullyingADragon Even if you're walking around in power armor and wielding a plasma rifle. While they're wearing salvaged football gear and armed with a machete.]]

** And how about that idiot who found a radiation suit and assumed it made him completely immune to radiation because he couldn't "feel" any radiation in highy radioactive areas? [[CriticalResearchFailure You typically can't feel radiation, only the after-effects, and by the time you are able to feel it you're as good as dead several times over]]. Anyway, you can find this guy dead next to a radioactive dump site, and the note on his body shows he was preparing to drench himself in some goop that was so horrifically radioactive it would've been an extreme hazard to every living thing within a hundred feet. The Geckos inhabiting the area (and probably what killed him) undoubtedly did the Mojave a favour.

* ''VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions'':
** Electro [[spoiler: for continuing the fight with Spider-Man on the dam ''after'' seeing that the rain reacted negatively with his powers.]]
** A S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist giving a tablet fragment to [[OmnicidalManiac Carnage]].
** Mysterio [[spoiler:for making a last ditch attempt to regain the [=ToOaC=] in the face of ''four'' different iterations of Spider-Man]]. Lampshaded by Amazing Spider-Man.
** Silver Sable follows the tracking device she'd placed on Juggernaut to the other side of New York after Spider-Man threw it away to get rid of her. At no point does she question Juggernaut's sudden departure from the construction yard ''without leaving a trail of destruction right in front of her'', or the speed he was moving.
** Very few of the villains in the DS version use their fragment pieces to boost their powers.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonGO'':
*** The loading screen features a picture of someone playing the game while unaware that he's walking towards a very angry Gyarados.
*** As the game is an AugmentedReality game involving visiting points of interest in real life, Niantic takes steps to prevent players from becoming real-life examples of this, such as pop-up messages warning the player not to tresspass, drive, or enter dangerous areas while playing and measures to stop certain game functions if the player is detected to be traveling over 30 mph.
