* In the "Iron Dominion" arc of ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'', Eggman has gone insane, growing increasingly distant and regressing farther back in his mental history each second, to the point where he completely forgets the events of the past couple of years, and believes things to be how they were, before the Great War happened.\\ '''You'd expect:''' If not kill him, than either the Freedom Fighters and the Iron Dominion would keep this delusion going; it would do neither of them any good to snap him out of it (as it means having to fight him again, and the Iron Dominion having to give up their claim to his empire), and the Freedom Fighters could use this mental regression to "re-educate" him into a possible good guy and ally.\\ '''Instead:''' They let him live and continue to refer to him by his current persona and even mock him with the events that drove him to madness, in the first place, which invariably breaks him out of his insanity and returns him to his old self. ** Similarly, the Freedom Fighters have had their asses handed to them twice by the Iron Dominion, both a result of [[DiabolusExMachina one of their cyborg allies getting controlled by the Iron Queen's]] {{Magitek}}. Both times, they only survive by using a Power Ring to break the spell. They also know the Iron Dominion is hell-bent on besieging New Mobotropolis - a [[{{Nanomachines}} nanite city]] in control of NICOLE, a [[VirtualGhost sentient computer program]].\\ '''You'd expect:''' The Freedom Fighters to realize a pattern to this, and equip not just their cybernetic allies but NICOLE as well with Power Rings, as a safety precaution against the Iron Queen's powers.\\ '''Instead:''' They do nothing, assuming everything will be fine with NICOLE. Predictably, she gets Magiteked, and the only solution they can think of to avoid the same thing happen to the people they've already encountered this with is to evacuate them at the last moment. Even more idiotic, when you consider that NICOLE's been hinted in-comic to be able to ''control the rate at which Power Rings emerge'', leaving no excuse for them ''not'' to have any Rings available for such a contingency.\\ '''Also:''' The Iron Queen should've clearly been able to tell she could manipulate NICOLE and the nanites in New Mobotropolis during her first successful breach into the city, as her Magitek was clearly shown affecting both in an adverse way -- even if she was too busy to ''see'' the effect her powers had, she surely should've ''sensed'' it through those same powers.\\ '''Instead:''' She completely ignored this and acted blithely ignorant about the mere prospect, requiring Snively to come up and tell her that. ** There are a number of powerful masters of mystic arts in the comic, from the villainous Mammoth Mogul to the more noble Merlin Prower (Tails' uncle) to the neutral Brotherhood Of Guardians (Knuckles' dad and other relatives). They are all aware that Dr. Robotnik/Eggman is a major threat, who doesn't mind causing ''genocide'' in order to rule the planet.\\ '''You'd expect:''' One of them would ''kill'' him. For Merlin and the Guardians, their homes and families (Tails and Knuckles) have been endangered by the guy multiple times before issue ''50''. At least Mogul could use the act to gain the heroes trust to further his own plans. Merlin actually has a spell that allowed Tails to use his SuperMode, so he could just sic Super Sonic on Eggman and win in two seconds.\\ '''Instead:''' They don't do a damn thing to stop him. By this point in the book, Eggman has rewritten reality ''twice'' and played an indirect part of the near genocide of the echidna race. It's like Sonic's status as the [[SpannerInTheWorks embodiment of chaos]] is just someone getting a counter for Eggman's insane luck. ** Geoffrey St. John, who pulled off a years long game of XanatosSpeedChess to get his master Ixis Naugus installed as king of the Republic of Acorn, learns without a doubt that Naugus is in fact evil. He also knows that Naugus was becoming increasingly ill as a result of Dr. Eggman's Genesis Wave, but he can't just tell anyone because the fallout of his trickery has destroyed any trust people had for him.\\ '''You'd think:''' He'd use that cunning to play lackey while getting proof of Naugus' illness to convince the council to get Naugus to step down as king. Even if Naugus is still too strong to ''force'' out of power, Geoffrey could still convince Naugus to play along to keep the council on his side.\\ '''Instead:''' He tries to convince Naugus to ask the council for help. Naugus realizes that Geoffrey is still under contract with him and possesses Geoffrey's body to escape his failing one.

* ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehogMegaManWorldsCollide'': The day is saved as Super Sonic and Super Mega Man defeat the Egg Wily Machine X and set to prepare to restore Earth and Mobius via Chaos Control. Wily mopes in defeat as Eggman decides he's not through and refuses to surrender.\\ '''You'd expect:''' Wily to get through to Eggman and just wait it out.\\ '''Instead:''' Eggman ''rams'' Super Sonic, then blasts his Chaos Control shot, completely futzing up Mobius. On the plus side, [[NiceJobFixingItVillain the Freedom Fighters will be back to full force.]]\\ '''Alternatively:''' Sonic could've remembered he's in SuperMode and just ''fly around'' Eggman's ship, or wreck what's left of it, so he's not distracted,

'''Instead:''' He goes at {{Sinestro}} solo and tries to kill him. Sinestro states that he has always been prepared for potential coups and has devised failsafes, namely emergency ring control overrides, and takes control of Mongul's ring. After impaling him from virtually every angle, Sinestro imprisons him within the central power battery.

** Still with ''New X-Men'', during the "Return to Limbo" arc, Belasco the sorcerer has tried bringing back Illyana Rasputin after M-Day, only for her to escape. Belasco decides she's gone back to the X-Men, and promptly drags everyone in the mansion to Limbo so he can find her. '''You'd expect:''' That as a powerful magic-wielder he'd use his powers on the X-Men, ask if they've seen or heard anything about Illyana, and send them back when he's done.

'''Instead:'' Vodo worries, but waits until Exar ''really'' crosses the line before trying to teach him a lesson (which doesn't work, because Exar has surpassed him in dueling skill). Exar Kun soon takes a short hop over to the dark side and starts an interstellar conquest. Characters elsewhere in the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse have used Vodo as a prime example of Jedi misjudgment.
