A character has come up with a ridiculously elaborate plot, that is ridiculously planned out, it can't possibly fail...

But exactly why is it so elaborately planned, you can just do something simple for a plan to come to fruition.

Why doesn't the villain just shoot them? Who knows? It seems to be the nature of idiotic villains.

Compare Idiot Plot.


Examples

  • Mephiles' plan from Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) could have ended so early if he just did a few simple tasks, but he had to overblow the whole plot, making the entire plan completely useless.
