The opposite of Heroic Sacrifice, a character, usually a villain, sacrifices themselves solely to make things harder for the other characters. May be so that they can frame them for something, or may simply be because the character is a Jerkass and this is their way of getting the last laugh.

Either way, the hero is being royally screwed.
