I believe SAO should be changed, but don't see how it can be done without deleting too much content. The thing is, none of the developers knew about project leader's intentions, everything was his own doing in secret from the rest of the staff. He is also established as pretty much the sole developer of this VR technology and the game itself.

Removing:
  • In HunterxHunter, the Greed Island arc would have been just a little shorter had Gon swallowed his pride and just stuck to the damn plan, instead of try to take the Bomber head on just to prove himself. Even when he reaches a point in battle where Biske told him he needs to run for it, he's still too selfish to stop (even acknowledging it), and ends up losing a hand and having his right arm mangled for his trouble.
...since according to the trope description, it would fall under What the Hell, Hero?. It's acknowledged within the series, is shown to be a serious character flaw with consequences, and only requires one character to be an idiot. At worst, I think it'd be the Idiot Ball.
