* 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.

* This is Michael-lan's current intended goal in ''TheSalvationWar'', but as a whole the demons (particularly Memnon) have in effect been let off the hook for their murder, rape, and torture of [[spoiler:"undead" Second Life]] humans... by the modern humans, anyway. [[spoiler:The undead, on the other hand...]]

* Super Kami Guru ''tries'' to pull off one of these in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'', making a DeathbedConfession that he [[spoiler: instigated the albino Namekian genocide to cover the fact that he had drank all the water]] before dying peacefully from old age. Then it turns out he ''isn't'' dying. [[KarmicDeath The Namekians soon change that.]]

* In ''WebVideo/FriendshipIsWitchcraft'' Twilight Sparkle gets away with [[spoiler: throwing Cadence in a pit to die and marrying her [[NotBloodSiblings brother]] Francis.]] Nor does she get any sort of retribution for the other evil actions she's done. To make matters worse, she's convinced that this makes her the hero of the story.

* In the ElfslayerChronicles, a game of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' played online, a PC gets fed up with the DM's plotline of preventing a war and [[OffTheRails kills the figure necessary to prevent said war]]. He then kills this person's lover, whom he framed for the deed, implicates another party member in the killing, and gets away scot-free. Nobody really cared because the [[OurElvesAreBetter elves]] were all humongous [[MarySue Victim Sues]], the plotline was blatant DM wish fulfillment, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking it was a yaoi campaign]], he had ''completely airtight'' in-character reasons for doing so (Word to the Wise: If you have clever humans in the party, NEVER try to play up that HumansAreBastards), the PC in question had metagamed horribly to implicate him in the crime despite having no reasons for doing so in character, and because ''[[XanatosGambit at no point in the campaign could he, within the rules, be connected in any way to the crime]]''. No matter who's doing it, that's [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome]]. As one comment said: "It's like [[Manga/DeathNote Death Note]], but with elves."

* The [[Creator/ThisIsIt Don't Hug Me I'm Scared]] series has a few:
** In the first instalment, Notepad's influence drives the puppets insane, though it's unclear how intentional this was. They are never punished. Subverted later in the HELP videos where Unnamed Monster [[spoiler:rips their face off.]]
** In the second, Tony the Talking Clock yells at the puppets until their ears bleed and [[spoiler:[[DisproportionateRetribution rots them alive for questioning whether time is real.]]]] He is never punished. Double subverted in the third where it looks like [[spoiler:he was brainwashed into being part of the cult]], but that turns out to be AllJustADream.
** In the HELP videos, the Unnamed Monster holds the puppets and Notepad hostage and tortures them horrifically. He gets off totally scot-free.
** In the third instalment, Shrignold and the Love Cultists attempt to [[spoiler:brainwash Manny into joining an insane cult and force him to marry his Special One against his will]]. It's also left ambiguous whether [[spoiler:Shrignold raped Manny.]] They are never punished, though given how awful the initiation process is it could be argued that what they went through before their appearance was bad enough.
** In the fourth instalment, Colin [[spoiler:traps the puppets in an alternate universe where all they can do is open doors over and over again for eternity just because [[DisproportionateRetribution Red Thing touched his keyboard.]]]] He completely gets away with this.

* In ''WebVideo/MarbleHornets'', [[spoiler: the Operator himself is the only villain who isn't stopped by the conclusion. This is [[JustifiedTrope justified]], as the Operator is immortal and basically impossible to truly destroy, not to mention he may not even be able to feel suffering like humans do anyways as he's more akin to a force of nature. Thus the only hope is that letting him finally take the person he'd been hunting for so long (Alex) was enough to satisfy him. The ending seems to suggest that the answer is that it was, but deliberately ends on a note of ambiguity by having Tim cough while in the woods like the Operator's presence often caused people to do.]]
