* ''ComicBook/MortadeloYFilemon'': From time to time, Mortadelo gets away with things because some misunderstanding results in someone else being blamed. For instance, when Filemón sees him smoking a cigar and Mortadelo offers him one, he quickly goes to the cigar box to take it. Cue the Super appearing out of nowhere to catch Filemón red-handed and grab him by the neck, saying "At last I've found the jerk who steals my cigars!"

* ''ComicBook/SecretEmpire'': A meta-example, where writer Nick Spencer and Marvel Comics editorial are the Karma Houdinis--by ending the series with a "good" Captain America publicly defeating the fascist Captain America that led the HYDRA takeover of America, Spencer and Marvel get to dodge any long-term, in-universe consequences for turning one of their flagship heroes into a fascist villain, and do so without ''technically'' going back on their word that the events of ''Secret Empire'' wouldn't be retconned away.

* ''ComicBook/PatPatriotAmericasJoanOfArc'': The Mallet, commander or a Japanese spy ring in China, escapes while Pat and the Chinese military take out his army. Given that the comic ends with an announcement that he's got a new scheme brewing, it can be presumed that ht would have become Pat's Arch-Enemy if the series didn't end.

* ''ComicBook/KismetManOfFate'':
** {{Satan}} is never even directly confronted in-comic, let alone punished for masterminding World War II.
** Flame and Bruta escape after supplying Hitler with a super weapon that could win him the war.
** As the comic ended in 1943, UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler makes a narrow escape from Kismet's wrath. However, if this universe follows history, he will get his comeuppance soon enough.
