* ''Manga/{{MW}}'': If Johan got away in the end, Michio Yuki also counts. He may have failed to gas the whole world and lost Garai, but he manages to get away clean from it by posing as his younger lookalike brother.

He may have failed to gas the whole world and lost Garai, but he manages to get away clean from it by posing as his younger lookalike brother. Although, it's downplayed by the fact he has a few months to live.

** Take Etsuko Yamanobe, from Foxy Nudes. She's a newscaster covering a hostage crisis, but to get hot ratings, actually manipulates the drunk kidnapper into raping his boss's daughter repeatedly, gives him a gun, tells him its fake, and when he opens fire, a sniper tries to shoot him and accidentally hits...the hostage. The kidnapper goes to jail while Etsuko goes to have happy sex with her camera man and enjoy great ratings, and the show treats it like a ''happy ending the entire time.''

* Dilandau in the ''Anime/{{Escaflowne}}'' movie gets away scot-free with his surviving Dragonslayers, without showing any remorse for his previous actions. He just shrugs, comments that there will always be new wars for him to fight, and rides off into the sunset. What's worse is that the scene has an extremely positive tone to it, like he somehow deserved to live and continue his life of violence and bloodshed without learning a thing, except maybe "don't try to fight Escaflowne".

* In ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia: Paint it, White!'', the Pictonians nearly get away with converting almost all of Earth into their species, and only only are convinced to reverse it all after Italy amuses them by drawing faces on them. Of course, given that the Pictonians vastly outnumber the nations and have them all outgunned, just getting the Pictonians to undo their damage and leave was probably the best to be hoped for.

** Zig-zagged with Vegeta. In terms of the overall story narrative, he comes off as a massive KarmaHoudini, getting a spot on the team and marrying Bulma despite having spent most of his life as a genocidal, remorseless maniac and even committing plenty of outright murderous and JerkAss deeds even after he became a nominal ally to Goku and the Z Fighters. On the other hand, when he gets ready to [[HeroicSacrifice blow himself up to kill Buu]], he asks Piccolo if he'll see Goku in the afterlife, to which Piccolo replies that he's certainly going to hell for his past actions. He would have, if they hadn't decided to revive him because he was too useful to waste. Also, he doesn't entirely fit this category in the purest sense because he usually does tend to pay very dearly not long after he's done something either murderous, stupid, or douchey, getting beaten to an inch of his life(or occasionally getting outright killed) by characters like Zarbon, Recoome, Frieza, Android 18, Cell, and Majin Buu usually after he's done something like massacring innocent people or just something outright stupid like allowing the enemy to reach his full potential.

* Griffith from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' sacrificed his hand-picked military unit he had ever since he was a teenager, raped his best friend's love interest in front of him (this after said best friend went out of his way to rescue Griffith from a dungeon he was rotting in for over a year) and his reward at the end of it all was to become a literal God. After that, he rebuilt the Band of the Hawk using much more powerful minions, successfully fought the Kushan empire (against which Guts did very little) saving a lot of people, and is in the process of creating his own kingdom, marrying the princess, and becoming in all rights a CrystalDragonJesus. But seeing as the manga is still ongoing, Griffith may yet get his comeuppance for what he's done...



* Sir Isaac Ray Peram Westcott from ''LightNovel/DateALive'' commits many atrocities within the span of his appearance and is apt at [[VillainExitStageLeft getting away]] [[TheUnfought with all sorts of them.]]

* In ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', members of player killer guilds such as Laughing Coffin and Titan's Hand commit murder and get away with it. Even if they identified players with all the data deleted there is no way to tell if they did kill players. Not to mention Kibaou who wants to rob beta tester, sends guild members to their death, extorts weak players, and send a rival guild member to his death to cover up his crimes.

** By the time Itachi Uchiha has been portrayed in a positive light, his mind-raping of Sasuke and Kakashi without any visible remorse the former of which decides to defect from Konoha because of it along with helping Akatsuki in extracting the Tailed-beasts from the hosts without trying to help them in any way, has all been brushed aside and he is instead portrayed as a selfless saint.
** Obito Uchiha has attempted to murder an infant that has just been born, summoned the nine-tails to Konoha killing lots of people, send the state of the Kiri village to hell, formed the Akatsuki that is responsible for even more deaths, aided Itachi in killing off his own clan, and started a pointless war causing many people to die all because he is throwing a temper tantrum towards Rin's death. Yet when he finally does a RedemptionEqualsDeath, he reunites with Rin in the afterlife with open arms with Rin stating that Obito is simply a misunderstood fellow as if she forgot every heinous act Obito did after she forces Kakashi to kill her. Naruto himself calls Obito an awesome guy, knowing he was the same man that caused most of the problems in his life, including ''killing his parents'', leaving him the bullied orphan he was for most of his life. Not to mention murdering one of Naruto's friends right in front of him just a few minutes earlier.

** Goku Black and Future Zamasu from ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' are this in a roundabout way. In the name of creating a universe free of mortals, they go on a genocidal campaign across the universe to kill all of them, and also go out their way to kill all the gods so they won't interfere with their plans. The former came into existence when an alternate version of Zamasu used the Super Dragon Balls to [[GrandTheftMe steal Goku's body]] and kill him and his family in cold blood, and the latter has CompleteImmortality, so he can't die no matter how badly the heroes beat him up. They clash multiple times with the heroes and often come out on the better end while [[KickTheDog gleefully admitting to the atrocities they've done]], and are only truly pushed by the final battle. What ultimately happens? They use [[FusionDance Potara Fusion]] to become Merged Zamasu, and since a fused character is considered a different entity entirely, neither of them will ever face punishment as an individual for their crimes despite being ultimately defeated. This is especially true of Goku Black, as while Future Zamasu suffers a VillainousBreakdown before fusing, Black [[InvincibleVillain remains in complete control of himself to the end]] even after being beat up by a vengeful Vegeta.

** Beerus from ''Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods'' and ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' is another straight example. While he's friendlier and less evil than Frieza, Cell, or Buu, he still gets away with some unpleasant actions. He cruelly used King Vegeta's head as a footstool in front of his own son Prince Vegeta while making him treat him to an Eight-Course Banquet, knowing that he is much weaker than him and with no posibility of defense, and has been responsible for numerous genocides throughout the universe. Then again, he is [[BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil a god needed to keep creation in balance]].
