** Will Harrangue was infamous for this in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien''. Aside from being a blatant HateSink, his first episode had him build a giant robot with his face on it and use it to shoot missiles at the Capitol Building and the Washington Monument on live TV, all for the purpose of [[WouldHurtAChild killing a 16 year-old teenager]]. Not only does he not get arrested for it (even though he admitted on TV that he was the one who did it), but he is not even punished later on in the series. The writers finally got the memo in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'', where [[ButtMonkey he started to get everything in the face]], eventually resulting in [[spoiler:him [[KarmicTransformation being turned into an alien]]]].

** [[{{IdiotHoudini}} Clarence and Sumo]] is one of the close example of this trope, to where in some episodes will othen end with them walking away without facing any consequences (such as getting Joshua in trouble, nearly fired from each jobs, or injuried at a certain extent), although some later episode will likely make either Clarence or Sumo and Jeff will likely receive some compupperance to actions (even if it morally questionable), while in episode "Lost in the Supermarket", Sumo went at this to Joshua, to where in the flashback, he gave him a scar in the left part of the eye, and also had ripped one part of Josh's hair, to where Josh had to chase Sumo down, which he ended up being busted while Sumo, who nearly trashed up the store, but did not received any consequences.
** In "Nature Clarence", which it went UpToEleven with Clarence and his friends had made Joshua went through hell, between having to drive them through the hot humid desert with everyone sweating so bad in a nearly broken down car, nearly falling from the cliff, and having to go through and arguement with Kate after she started dating someone, and had his ear bitten off by the goat that Sumo had found, at the end, Clarence and the rest had never receive any comeupperance.

** The [[AmazonBrigade Zamorans]] are essentially a race of violent {{Yandere}}s and interstellar kidnappers, who [[MindRape brainwash]] random women around the galaxy into [[BrainwashedAndCrazy becoming their soldiers]] and abduct that woman's partner and imprison him in crystal forever. In their first episode, one of them becomes obsessed with Hal and tries to murder him; then they recruit Carol Ferris, his LoveInterest back on Earth and she in turn tries to kill him; almost seal away Razer and Kilowog; and also recruit another innocent female alien who had fallen in love with Kilowog (who unlike Carol is never freed from their control). Like the Red Lanterns, everyone seems perfectly happy working with them in subsequent appearances.

* The [[TheHorde Red Lanterns]] in ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries'' are the villains of Season 1, using power rings literally [[TheDarkSide fuelled by rage]] [[PowerOfHate and hatred]], they carve a swathe through largely undefended regions of space, enslaving civilians, laying waste to all who oppose them and even ''blowing up planets''. At the end of the season, BigBad Atrocitus is imprisoned, and the other Red Lanterns... are allowed to keep all their conquered territory and essentially become a recognised government. The Guardians literally handed over a good chunk of the galaxy over to a terrorist group and no-one seems to have a problem with this. Not only are they never punished, but the Green Lanterns ally with them several times afterwards, admittedly in the face of [[GodzillaThreshold universe-ending threats]], with their multiple crimes never discussed or even mentioned.
