* The Huntsman from ''TheTenthKingdom.'' Earlier in the miniseries, we are told that his magic weapon is a crossbow that, when fired, shoots bolts that will not stop until they hit the heart of a living being. So quite naturally, during the climax when he and Wolf are struggling over the weapon and it is accidentally fired upwards through the skylight, the rule of KarmicDeath (as well as the law of gravity) dictates the arrow comes right back down and stabs the Huntsman in the heart from behind.

* In ''{{Life}}'' (season 1, "Powerless"), the main villain becomes obsessed with Reese (they both go to the same AA meetings, and he figures that she lied about her dark past), so he holds her hostage in her kitchen and forces her to drink a massive bottle of vodka, and finally she tells him about her past in a [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech totally awesome speech]], and when he looks away for a second, she grabs the empty bottle of vodka and whacks him across the head with it, thus giving her partner and his backup time to break in and save her.

** The same trope actually ends up bailing Dexter out of trouble later in the season. Having been suspended from duty, Sgt. Doakes goes outside the law, breaks into Dexter's apartment and steals his collection of slides containing his victim's blood, which he intends to have analysed outside the country. However, when he flies out of the U.S. to set this up the FBI break into his car (he, along with several other officers are being investigated for possible connections with the case), find the slides and end up assuming ''he'' is the killer. Dexter decides to take this situation and run with it, planting evidence to frame Doakes for his own crimes, [[spoiler:and Doakes eventually gets blown up by Dexter's StalkerWithACrush Lila, resulting in him being officially named as the killer after his remains are found]].

** In Season 2, Zoom's ruthlessness ends up playing against him. After he kills Deathstorm (the Earth 2 version of Ronnie/Firestorm) for disobeying his orders not to harm the Flash, his lover Killer Frost (Caitlin's counterpart) turns on him at a crucial moment, allowing Team Flash to escape back to Earth 1. Earlier, [[spoiler:as Jay Garrick]], in order to stop Caitlin from trying to find his double, he tells her his double's name ([[spoiler:Hunter Zolomon]]). This is eventually used to find out Zoom's secret identity and temporarily subdue him.

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', [[spoiler:Eobard Thawne (AKA the Reverse Flash)]] has been helping Barry get faster and learn new ways of using his speed [[spoiler:in order to eventually use Barry's speed to send Thawne back to his own time]]. Some time after [[spoiler:Thawne's defeat and RetGone]], Barry encounters his past self. The trick he uses to thwart him is one of the last taught to him by [[spoiler:Thawne]] (the one allowing Barry to pass through walls). Thing is, [[spoiler:Thawne]] should have known this would happen when teaching it to Barry, as, from his perspective, this was all in the past.
