* ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseman'': ** [=BoJack=] constantly reminds his agent/ex-girlfriend Princess Carolyn that her new boyfriend Vincent is actually three young children standing atop each other, and not an adult human.\\ '''You'd Expect:''' Princess Carolyn, an otherwise smart and driven anthropomorphic cat, to find something fishy (no pun intended) about a "grown man" in a trenchcoat with a child's voice and a limited vocabulary who doesn't let her visit him at home, among other things.\\ '''Instead:''' Princess Carolyn and Vincent date for most of Seasons 1 and 2, with Carolyn none the wiser and still dismissing [=BoJack=]'s warnings as more of his trademark insecurities. ** [=BoJack=]'s rival, friend, and pet peeve Mr. Peanutbutter isn't the sharpest tool in the shed either. He frequently goes along with slacker Todd's outrageous business ventures, no matter how silly they are.\\ '''You'd Expect:''' Mr. Peanutbutter to wise up and gently, politely ask Todd what the hell he's smoking to come up with such terrible ideas.\\ '''Instead:''' Mr. Peanutbutter's extremely positive personality makes it virtually impossible for him to say no.\\ '''Result:''' PB Living, the company run by Mr. Peanutbutter and Todd, goes bankrupt due to their wacky, money-losing business ideas, forcing Mr. Peanutbutter to temporarily work at a Lady Foot Locker store.

'''Instead:''' Kingpin just pisses Hobgoblin (whom he has NO leverage on) off and lets him be: "You will be paid when I say you are paid." Your team-building techniques suck, Pinny! ** Osborn repeats his act of idiocy AGAIN: team up with Hobgoblin, give him an improved glider with no safeguards in it, act surprised when Hobgoblin betrays him AGAIN.

* The characters of ''WesternAnimation/Batmanbeyond'' have their share, as well. ** "Lost Soul": An evil AI (the [[BrainUploading preserved mind]] of the late Robert Vance) is on the loose in Gotham, hijacking all sorts of computer systems. Bruce and Terry are fully aware of this; Bruce even shuts down the cave's computer at one point to stop Vance from hacking in. At a later point, while Terry's in the field, the last thing Bruce hears him say is, "There's something wrong with the suit -- I can barely move my leg" before all contact is lost completely.\\ '''You'd expect:''' The original Batman to deduce that Vance has hacked the suit (or at least realize it's a strong possibility) and hit the suit's kill switch immediately.\\ '''Instead:''' He waits over a minute before hitting the kill switch, giving Vance enough time to drag Terry up to his shoulders in the middle of the Gotham River. Terry's seconds away from drowning before Bruce arrives with the Batmobile to pull him out. ** "Hidden Agenda": Batman realizes that the Jokerz are after Max and believes this is because of the computer program she's running to uncover their identities. He rushes to the school where she's stayed after hours to work on it and saves her from their latest trap.\\ '''You'd expect:''' Batman to tell Max, "The Jokerz are after you because of that program you're running -- for your own safety, you need to stop." After all, there would be nothing suspicious about Batman having such knowledge.\\ '''Instead:''' Batman leaves as soon as he saves her, without saying anything, immediately returns as Terry, with no explanation for what he's doing there or how he got in the building, and then tells Max why the Jokerz are after her.\\ '''Result:''' Max instantly believes her program's conclusion that Terry is one of the Jokerz. Later, she easily deduces he's actually Batman. ** "The Last Resort": Terry gets caught secretly videotaping a friend's testimony of the emotional abuse PsychoPsychologist Wheeler is inflicting on the teenaged inmates of his facility. Wheeler destroys the camera and recording and locks Terry in a patient room until he can think of how to stop him from revealing the truth. He considers just denying everything since "it's his word against mine" but discards that plan and decides to just kill him and MakeItLookLikeAnAccident, after putting him in an isolation chamber ("total sense deprivation -- no light, no sound") for a few hours to "take the fight out of him." The (in)efficiency of this plan aside...\\ '''You'd expect:''' Wheeler to put his plan into motion immediately, since there's no reason in context for him to delay and the first part will take several hours.\\ '''Instead:''' He waits until morning for absolutely no reason.\\ '''Result:''' Terry eventually gets word of his plan through the prison grapevine and has plenty of time to form a (successful) plan of escape with another inmate being sent to isolation at the same time.

Even if Trixie realised that the plant was going to kill her, she'd still chew Timmy out anyway.
** At the end of the episode "Class Clown", Timmy saves Trixie from being killed by the plant he had given her as a gift.\\ '''You'd Expect''': For Trixie to realise that the plant was going to kill her, and thank Timmy.\\ '''Instead''': [[UngratefulBastard She chews out]] [[TooDumbToLive Timmy for killing her plant and dumps him.]]

This proves difficult when the two are throwing a parade, and it just so happens to be next to the restaurant she and Linda are having lunch, with Linda seated facing away from it. Thus, her mission is to get Linda to notice the parade without her usual cries of "Mom, Mom, Phineas and Ferb are doing this!"\\ '''You'd Expect:''' Candace could innocently go, "Look, a parade" without speaking of Phineas and Ferb's involvement in it.\\ '''Instead:''' She vaguely tries to get Linda to turn her head around. Linda doesn't understand why, nor does she notice the parade.
