Can cause ATragedyOfImpulsiveness, if the situation becomes more serious. It is also the usual reaction to a character demonstrating especially severe GenreBlindness. Taking this to the next level, where a character dies or very nearly dies because of their stupidity, is being TooDumbToLive.

And please, as tempting as it is to defend your favorite show from forcing the IdiotBall into its characters' hands, refrain from making {{Justifying Edit}}s. With a CardCarryingVillain or IdiotHero, a few of these are to be expected. If the entire show has an IdiotPlot, it goes on that page instead. Also, ''do not assume that something listed here automatically makes it a bad episode''; it is usually more along the lines of "something else that is better could have been done". And, of course, some characters are ''supposed'' to be idiots, in which case we probably don't need a full and complete list of every stupid thing they do; a brief summing up would be more helpful.
