* In the WhateleyUniverse, one of the most evil villains we have met so far is Dr. Emil Hammond, a normal who has experimented on and tortured mutants for decades. He was captured, but in a huge 'OJ Trial', his super-expensive legal team (hired by the mutant-hating Goodkind family) not only gets him off but makes it look as if some evil mutant supervillain has been framing the poor man. He gets hired by the Goodkinds as a researcher, and when 14-year-old Trevor Goodkind manifests as a mutant, Hammond tortures the kid for days. In another story, we see that Hammond has a lab devoted to agonizing experiments on teenaged mutants. Punishment so far? None at all. He has a bigger lab. The overall plot has advanced about one semester out of what seem to be a planned 4 years; it may be a bit early to claim Houdini-hood for villains who simply haven't gotten their comeuppance just ''yet''.

* George Wickham of ''WebOriginal/TheLizzieBennetDiaries'' is actually even worse than his book counterpart (who, mind you, was already a vile person), and he gets even ''less'' comeuppance in this version. True, he'll never make any money off of the sex tape of him and Lydia (which he tried to release and sell online ''without her consent''), but considering how emotionally abusive he was to Lydia (and Gigi, before the start of the series), and that releasing that tape would've ''ruined her life'', that hardly seems like enough punishment. [[FridgeHorror There's nothing to stop him from doing it again to another girl]]. But thanks to legal loopholes, the Bennets can't sue him. The fact that Lydia at least doesn't wind up married to him for life in this version, and at least with Lizzie's videos, there is a large audience online who knows what a scumbag he is, is only small consolation. After he appears in one of Gigi's side videos, and Darcy is able to track him down and prevent the release of the website, he's never seen again, and presumably is able to live happily ever after. No wonder fans like to speculate that the reason we never see him again is because Darcy killed him.

* ''{{Survival of the Fittest}}''. The BigBad Danya, who, so far, has managed to avoid any serious repercussions for his crimes (although he was injured twice, and as of v3 seems rather proud of the scars) is definitely one of these. Arguably certain villains also avoid getting their just desserts, experiencing relatively peaceful deaths as opposed to the violent slaughter they visited on their victims. Version three ended up subverting this; [[spoiler:JR Rizzolo]] won the game, but when he got home he found his family had abandoned him. During the events of the fourth season, after he'd managed to become a celebrity, he is murdered in his home by [[spoiler:Maxie Dasai]].

* {{Discussed}} in WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick's review of ''{{Jem}}:'' one of the things she actually finds funny about the show is that the Misfits are always doing wildly illegal things without anyone seeming to care.

* In the various Website/GoAnimate "Grounded" videos, the non-troublemakers/punishers tend to get away with the more heinous actions than the kids that got into trouble in the first place.
