We love shonen protagonists, but that doesn't mean that they're perfect. Sometimes, they can seriosuly screw things up. Even the best characters can sometimes make major mistakes, and that's part of what makes them so interesting.
Most of the worst mistakes made by shonen anime protagonists are understandable - how was Senku Ishigami supposed to know that the person he revived would become a Light Yagami-esque criminal? Speaking of Light Yagami, most people wouldn't be able to resist trying the notebook if they got ahold of it, nor would they be able to avoid making at least one major strategic mistake. As for Boruto Uzumaki cheating during the Chunin Exams, it wasn't right, but it's easy to see why he made that mistake. It's hard to say the same about Goku giving his enemy a Senzu bean - that was just plain wild.
