* KarmaHoudini: Al, Trent, Lee and Newt are examples of this trope. Al is the king of them having [[MoralEventHorizon raped the dog]] publicly and loudly so often its not just [[CrossingTheLineTwice crossing the line twice]], he's taken atrocity [[UpToEleven up to eleven]] and has no intent of stopping. Mildly subverted in that he suffered a minor reversal of fortunes in demon society. This however was due to letting Rachel live [[spoiler:with knowledge of demon magic]] as opposed to any ill deed he did.
