* ''Anime/BokuNoHeroAcademia'': Bakugou has been a huge {{Jerkass}} and Midoriya's [[TheBully bully]] between the ages 4 to 15, and even after getting his life saved by him, he still refuses to even apologize, he never suffered any blow back, and Midoriya not even seem to hold anything against him. He does gets some shit, such as [[spoiler: being kidnapped]], losing the Heroes vs Villain simulation and becoming a ButtMonkey that the other students like to poke fun at, since he gets angry easily.

* Taken UpToEleven and through the other side in ''Manga/SeigiNoMikata''. Makiko ''should'' be a VillainProtagonist. She delights in cruel pranks and acts of DisproportionateRetribution. However, Karma seems to be full-on inverted for her. The target of her cruelty always either ends up benefitting in some way, or turns out to be an AssholeVictim who deserves it. She keeps getting civic awards and approbation for being a pillar of the community.

** Shinji/Paul in the anime, has gotten away with countless cases of psychological and physical abuse towards his own Pokemon, equally countless cases of neglect and abandonment, multiple counts of poor sportsmanship, conduct unbecoming a Pokemon trainer outside the arena, one count of critically demoralizing a Gym Leader, and one Rage Quit, among others, with nary a word in reprimand for it. In fact, [[CreatorsPet he's quite often praised for being a "strong trainer" instead!]]

** He's not really malignant, but as far as anyone knows, the Magikarp Salesman has never received any comeuppance for all the times he conned James and Jessie (the closest was one episode where James was wise to his scheme, but he still escaped).

** In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'', Rustal Elion was never punished for his atrocities such as manipulating media into making Tekkadan as terrorists and using illegal weapons. And yet, for a man who wants to keep the status quo, he ends up ironically reforming Gjallarhorn only because three of the Seven Stars families had been extinct. In the end, he's seen as a "hero" for putting down [=McGillis=] and Tekkadan and helping Kudelia abolish the Human Debris system. Many viewers see this more of PragmaticVillainy.

** Zen himself far outstrips Mykage as a Houdini, given Mykage only even exists because Zen [[ItMakesSenseInContext tricked his dog into thinking he was him]], and the entire plots of both ''Evol'' and the original ''Anime/GenesisOfAquarion'' are the direct result of his deception. He receives no punishment for any of this.

* Asuham Boone from ''Anime/OvermanKingGainer''. Towards the end of the series, his obsession with getting back at Gain for the whole mess with Asuham's sister Karin degenerates to the point where Asuham willingly manipulates Cynthia and a lot of his underlings (and President Munt himself) in order to awaken the Overdevil, an EldritchAbomination capable of destroying the world. He never seemed hesitant nor regretful about it... and all that happens to him is that he gets his Dominator shot down and gets a WhatWereYouThinking speech from Karin herself (who had come to terms with the fact that Gain's relationship with her wouldn't have lasted). Not much of a punishment, huh? Understandable in that YoshiyukiTomino had come out of his problems with depression and was producing lighter and more idealistic shows... but still, some were dissatisfied letting Asuham go like that, after all the crap he pulled.

* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', Kyubey ultimately does not receive any punishment for his (species's) millennia-long campaign of turning little girls into [[OurLichesAreDifferent liches]] and, eventually, {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, all in the name of [[PoweredByAForsakenChild anti-entropy energy production]], while having no real regard for the well-being of the victims or humanity as a whole. The ending replaces the "eldritch abomination" part with regular old death, making Kyubey's questionable power-generation tactic less efficient, but he suffers no direct consequences and gets to continue [[DealWithTheDevil making satanic contracts with children]]. In TheMovie, he attempts to bring back the old system, and this time he ''does'' get some sort of punishment, [[MindRape possibly psychological]]; but [[BrokenBase this ending is controversial for other reasons]].
