*** In "Imitation Krabs," Plankton put a one-cent self-destruct slot on the robot he was inside. He sums it up perfectly: "Not one of my better ideas."

* ''WesternAnimation/Castlevania'': After being warned by a giant Dracula head made out of flames that they were to leave the country within one year for killing his wife, the people not only ignore it, they actually host a celebration for the day she was killed. Dracula's coming sounds as angered as he is annoyed at the villagers sheer stupidity as he releases an army of demons in the town.
** Driving the point home, after it has become publicly knowledge that demonic forces intend to kill every living being left in Wallachia, people go on their daily lives normally instead of running like there's no tomorrow or organizing any form of defense against them.

Added DiffLines:

** "Hot to the Touch" demonstrates that, while Flame Princess is very powerful, she is not a very smart combatant. At one point, she ambushes Finn and Jake...and literally announces out loud "I am ambushing you!" If Finn actually wanted her dead (which he didn't), she most likely would be at that point. In fact, Flame Princess' strategy often involves being a LeeroyJenkins, as demonstrated in "Vault of Bones", as she finds strategizing boring.

** In "Murder on the Planet Express", Dan [=McMaster's=] idea of a teamwork exercise was to pick up a hitchhiker and do a trust fall with him, which causes him to be eaten by the hitchhiker who was actually a shapeshifter. [[spoiler:However it's revealed that the events of the episode were staged and the shapeshifter was, in fact, part of the teamwork exercise, but he is killed by Fry and Bender after failing to convince them that he faked his death and that there was a pizza party in a secluded room, which is not really something you want to say to panicked and frenzied survivors who have had their trust towards others completely destroyed]].

* Also qualifies for Daffy in his portrayal of ''[[WesternAnimation/DuckDodgers Duck Dodgers]]'' in which said character has many a glaring example. One especially prominent one is when Dodgers decides he doesn't want to wait for the cadet to prepare blowfish and prepares it by slapping it around for a bit before ''taking a big bite out of the raw, unprepared blowfish with a 100% guarantee of it still being fatally poisonous.'' Don't worry he only goes trippy for a while, if it were any other show he'd be dead already.

** In the episode "All Your Fault", Lemongrab and his clone have turned ''all'' of the food that Princess Bubblegum has supplied them into living beings, then when Finn and Jake give them seeds to regrow their crops they bring those to life as well, and continue to blame PB for their suffering and send their largest creation to attack the Candy Kingdom. Had PB not erased the life-bringing formula from their brains at the end of the episode the Lemon Kingdom's population would be wiped out and the Candy Kingdom would be in rubble.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries'' Jasmine is this in the episode "When Chaos Comes Calling" where she orders Chaos, a god-like being shown to be more powerful than Mirage (who herself is a powerful evil elemental capable of wiping Agrabah easily off the map without the heroes saving the day) to stop causing madness around the palace during a royal guest meeting. Although Chaos looks like a harmless silly blue cat with wings, Genie had explicitly warned her not to make him mad as he had "more power in his whisker than a palace full of Genies" and could grant his own wishes. To no one's surprise, Chaos does not take being ordered around well and shrinks her to the size of an ant right under Aladdin's feet, who unknowingly endangers her life. Fortunately she is brought back to full size due to Chaos' love for unpredictability. Jasmine should really have known better than to order around a trickster deity.
* ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'' features the title character in addition to practically his entire kingdom. An evil ex king is able to trick Julien into holding an election, and even when he admits to being evil, he is still able to convince the kingdom to vote for him with meaningless platitudes.

** Amy Wong is easily tricked into doing stupid or downright harmful things (such as releasing Dr. Zoidberg from his restraints multiple times and not learning from her mistake; Bender even calls her a 'moron').

** The [[TheEmpire Fire Nation]] has a bad tendency to capture and imprison their enemies rather then kill them. And this often bites them in the ass. Especially when they use coal to fuel the smokestacks in an Earthbender prison, that the prisoners use to free themselves. Maybe the show's [[NotSoDifferent not as different]] from the movie, or as well written as the [[FanDumb fans]] think.
