** Old Blind Pete sells out his friend the cleric of Loki, Haley, Celia and Belkar so he can regenerate his eyes without the Thieves' Guild [[EyeScream objecting]]. When he returns to see that the Guild is still dealing with them, he wants to hang out in his living room instead of staying the hell away while multiple mid-to-high level belligerents whom he personally betrayed are still at large inside. Belkar and the cleric friend wipe out the thieves Pete is talking to and Belkar stabs him in the foot so he can't get away. When Pete tries to weasel his way out, the cleric of Loki notes how smart he is, and in a CallBack to Pete saying how when one deals with criminals, one shouldn't be named after any body part you can't afford to lose, names him "Brainy Pete".

** [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080723 "I will shoot any man who tries to move this ship."]] Not only is this guy as good as dead, he possibly just doomed the whole crew with him (well, assuming they can make it out in time). If they [[ScyllaAndCharybdis don't get picked up]] by the Baron.
*** The novelisation goes further with this, explaining that even before this, the Duke Strinbeck had been a total berk even the other nobles looked down on, having lost his land to animated toys. His cause of death was even labelled as Too Dumb To Live, something his next-of-kin didn't even blink at.

** [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20141029 The adviser sent by the council]] to advise Martellus has all of them beaten, though. Tweedle is an unstable bastard at the best of times, but when said adviser, after ordering to fire on the Corbettites as a show of power (which results in the loss of several airships), explains with lots of condescension to Martellus that he's still young and need to be shown how it is done, you know he doesn't have long to live. Tweedle [[DestinationDefenestration throws him out of the airship]] before he can even finish his spiel]].

* Gordon Frohman from the ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life}}''-based comic ''{{Concerned}}'' is quite possibly the definition of Too Dumb to Live as it's revealed near the end of the comic that he's been playing the entire game with the Buddha cheat on this whole time; he then ''turns it off'', with [[DownerEnding predictable results]].

* The Elves in ''Webcomic/ErrantStory'', with ''exactly'' two exceptions (Sarine and Misa [literally the youngest elf in the world]). The aftermath of the final battle brings this trope into full focus, when one of the surviving Elves [[spoiler: threatens Meji -- who had just ''saved them all from genocide'' -- that the surviving Elves would not rest until either she gave up the power she "stole" or she was dead. Note that Meji is just as powerful as Ian, the half-elf that nearly killed them all minutes earlier. ''And they know it.'']] Not a single Elf on the scene so much as protests his words (save [[spoiler:Sarine]], who's too exhausted and disgusted to muster the energy).
* The end of the "Red Herring" arc of ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow'' sums up an entire town's cult as this. [[spoiler:After generations of absorbing the entire town into the cult, its members chose to reduce themselves into an artificially sweetened, powdered beverage mix, which was then infused into lime cool-ade for its leader to drink and thus become a gestalt psychic entity. He only got a litre and a half down before he fell into a diabetic coma, dipped into the cannibal juice and drowned. In a universe of powerful daemonic and supernatural entities and eldritch forces at work, ''none of them'' were involved in this travesty. In the end, as Eastwood said, "a group of nutters chlorinated, sweetened, and artificially flavored their own gene pool".]]

** Background character mentioned only in passing, but: [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20071217 X The Destroyer]] is definitely an example. He camped on the big plain in front of Mechanicsburg[[spoiler:, right on top of the big X.]]

** And then there's Dr. Merlot. Okay, [[spoiler:not figuring out that Agatha Clay is ''really'' Agatha Heterodyne]] is excusable. But [[spoiler:burning down the building with the important papers inside, as well as all the cryptographers that cracked the code they were written in]] goes a long way beyond the MoralEventHorizon. He's ''lucky'' to have only [[spoiler:been sentenced to Castle Heterodyne]] but then he cements his TooDumbToLive credentials while in there by [[spoiler:attacking Agatha and her friends.]]
** Martellus von Blitzengaard, a.k.a. Tweedle, shows increasing signs of being this. Mouthing off before [[spoiler:a very unstable and obsessed Gil that he won't ever reach Agatha [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20131108 proves a good way to get his hands mangled and/or chopped off, and then stabbed multiple times by Bang; even after that, he STILL has to be physically hauled away by his minions.]]]]

Tweedle is an unstable bastard at the best of times, but when [[spoiler:said advisor, after ordering to fire on the Corbettites as a show of power (which results in the loss of several airships), explains with lots of condescension to Martellus that he's still young and need to be shown how it is done, you know he doesn't have long to live.
