"From bad to worse"

Sometimes when it comes to situations in tabletop games, the solution is very straight forward. Kill the monster. Rescue the princess. Stop the evil summoning ritual. In most cases, the answer is simple.

In OTHER cases however, it can turn out that was the party may have thought was the solution, could instead make the entire situation that much harder to deal with. Tell a story of a time where you or someone else's character ended up making a situation WORSE.

Fighting in a library. Kill an animate book with a slashing weapon, it turns into a cloud of paper. Magus decided to set one of these paper shreds on fire, because hey, books don't like fire.

Thankfully, they put it out before anyone got hurt.

The story about setting a library on fire reminds me of an episode of the web series RWBY. In it Ruby and her current group were fighting a monster that absorbed pieces of the environment to use as its body, so once the team managed to destroy one of its arms it just replaced it with a tree. This gave Ruby the idea to set said arm on fire. Good idea, right? Unfortunately the wood was quite green, and as a result it went from having a tree for an arm to having a FLAMING TREE for an arm.

""Big mistake!""

I was dealing with some IRL turmoil yesterday, and so the DM said he was going to take control of my Gestalt Swashbuckler/Sorceress/Dragon Disciple for an encounter. When I was finally able to join back in, I was just in time to roll three Fort saves against poison and three Fort saves against bleeding out. I stopped being poisoned while I was at -7 HP, and someone finally passed a Heal check while I was sitting at a cute -9.

Long story short, the DM promised to never throw spells at us that are above our level (He used Darkness, a 3rd level spell, while we were all level 2, and no one had Darkvision).

As for the players, we've learned our lesson of making sure we've got a Cleric in the team. What a way to have a second session.

We were doing a one-shot 20th level 3.5 game and the cleric decided to cure a werewolf's lycanthropy. All it did was unlock his other levels as an antipaladin. Actually doubled his CR and made the fight take twice as long. We still survived, but just barely.

Dark Heresy game. Fighting heretics. A group of 4 were doing a ritual as we fought nearby. One of our guys tried using a firebomb to deal with a group of baddies. And hit the ritual. That caused the cultists to melt. And reform into a firebreathing pillar of molten flesh.

Dark Heresy II game, while trying (and having already failed) to stealthily infiltrating a facility we stumble across some cultists trying to reopen a sealed rift. The party psyker opens fire with her mind, killing the cultists also damaging the seal to the open where it will now open on it's own, given time. It took some doing and some bodies, but we got the seal repaired. Then we stumbled into the room filled with, like, 50 guys with good guns.

... Surprised none of them pointed out that there is more then a slight difference between "teeth" and "a sizable portion of his jaw".
