* ''{{WebAnimation/RWBY}}''. Cinder Fall, overall [[BitchInSheepsClothing bitch in sheep's clothing]] has managed to avoid serious punishment for her actions, which include destroying Beacon Academy, awakening the Grimm Dragon, killing the Fall Maiden, and [[TearJerker killing off fan favourite Pyrrha Nikos]], and yet, she didn't even get a quarter of the fate she deserves, at most she got half her face burned, but that would be it, she's still alive, and worst of all, does not regret any action, this has lead her to become one of the [[TheScrappy worst examples of Scrappy characters in-universe, worse than Cardin Winchester ever was anyways]], however, as of Volume 5, with Ozpin back from the dead, which was the mission Cinder was tasked with in Volume 3, things might look bleak for her, because if Salem finds out her utter failure, you can count on her finally being punished once and for all, especially after nearly killing Weiss Schnee (one of the protagonists) and getting in a fight with the REAL Spring Maiden: Raven Branwen.
** It took 5 volumes, but Cinder's luck has finally run out as Raven sent her to Hell, Cinder was frozen solid and her body fell from a great height, so she either died from her blood freezing, or from her body shattering on impact, she got her [[KarmaHoudiniWarranty one way ticket to vacations with Mr. Roman Torchwick]]

* In {{CrazyCommentaries}}'s LP of ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'', the penguins are this. They made the duo search for about 10 minutes to find the penguin that was right at the start of the level, launched the duo off a cliff for trying to throw them off, yelled at them for taking a shortcut, and pushing them off the edge of a racetrack at one particular turn where it is already really hard to get past it in the first place.

* 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]].
