** Meanwhile, the Repliforce of VideoGame/MegaManX4 pull off one of the most stupid actions in the entire franchise. When framed for the destruction of a populated metropolitan city, their response to being told to lay down their arms and come in for questioning effectively can be summed up as giving the world a middle-finger and resisting orders as they try to then arm a ''space colony laser'' when they're summarily hunted down. All of this despite Sigma himself practically spelling out just how bad something like this could get to the General of said force, who shrugs it off and [[NiceJobBreakingItHero falls right into his ploy as a result.]]

The cutscene of the General's proclamation of Reploid Independence does not have a clear timeline.

* ''VideoGame/TheTuringTest'': [[spoiler:At the end, Ava and Sarah decide to walk into Tom's control room to disconnect it without any kind of protection, despite knowing that Tom is able and willing to use lethal force.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The [[NoNameGiven Heroine]] of VideoGame/AmnesiaOtome makes some pretty downright ''idiotic'' decisions during the anime/game, for instance ''willingly'' staying with Toma even after she learns he was ''[[{{Yandere}} drugging her and locking her in a cage]]''.

** Most humans coming from the Outside World do not last long in Gensokyo either, asking the local man-eating monster for directions and brushing off the natives as [[MedievalMorons backwards and superstitious]].

** Shinmyoumaru Sukuna initiated the social revolution plot of ''Double Dealing Character'' after Seija Kijin told her that her spot at the bottom of Gensokyo's pecking order was because "MightMakesRight" is the way Gensokyo works, so weaklings like them have no rights... It's just that Seija is an Amanojaku, and Amanojaku are infamous scammers and pathological liars, and Shinmyoumaru ''knew'' that Seija was an Amanojaku at the time she was duped. "HorribleJudgeOfCharacter" does not cover the levels of gullibility required for such foolishness.

* Jin in ''DeadIsland.'' It's hard to interpret her actions as anything less than DrivenToSuicide. She starts by hijacking the truck and threatening abandonment unless you help everyone, which results in a number of survivors being killed. She then runs off to help prisoners at the police station, which gets a survivor at the church killed before she is gang raped. Then on the maximum security prison, she doesn't want to be there, which is fair enough, but Yerema points out her mental state and when confronted by Ryder White at gunpoint, she angers him about trying to kill everyone, before ''releasing his infected wife'' which promptly attacks him. Ryder reacts by shooting Jin, which at this stage is clearly SuicideByCop.

* Too many to count in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', but the thugs in Camp Searchlight stand out. This gang of looters are hanging out in a basement in ''a very radioactive town'' full of giant scorpions and ghouls, looking for radsuits. You know, the things you'd expect to bring ''before'' going in? It's a real wonder how they haven't turned into [feral] ghouls yet, seeing as the basement also is teeming with radiation and they're still in their non-radiation-shielding metal suits. If you bring them the wayward suit package, they'll agree to split the loot with you, if you help them loot the police station and the fire station. Note that the fire station is home to a gigantic queen scorpion, which you'll have to help take down. Once you've looted everything (because the thugs do nothing but loiter around), their leader tells you that he's going to kill you now, [[WhatAnIdiot choosing the worst possible time to double cross you]]. At this point, you're probably pointing your powerful gun at his face already, who seriously didn't take account to the fact that you've probably already [[TookALevelInBadass taken several levels in badass]] and clad in power armor or whatever protective suit you're wearing, and blow him away (and possibly a few of his men, if you have the action points for it) the moment he stopped talking. Winner takes all.

** There's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it Easter egg that counts under this trope. In Jacobstown, there are former resort bungalows which can be entered. One has a long-dead skeleton in an overturned chair next to a table where a card game clearly went awry. No points for guessing that the corpse on the floor was shot for being a cheater, as this trope first comes into play when the cheater's cards on the table are examined. Five kings. All of the same suit. It's entirely possible that they were shot for being terminally stupid, rather than just dishonest.
