*** Sadly, it also works against them. When the Namekians were gathered on Earth, they realize one village is missing. As it turns out, they were killed by Vegeta and, at that time, he had started to rebel against Frieza. The wish made on Shenron was to revive those killed by Frieza, directly or indirectly. Since Vegeta wasn't working for Frieza when he killed the villagers, they aren't revived.

** The whole legend behind becoming a Super Saiyan can possibly this this as well. At the time, the legends stated that only a saiyan pure of heart could become one, a perfect fit for Goku. At least until Vegeta learns how to do it. Ain't nobody said you couldn't be pure ''evil''.

* ''Kimihagu'': Emily becomes the disciplinary committee president and forbids any romantic behavior on the school... however, there are no rules against ADateWithRosiePalms, so when Emily goes to the bathroom in Episode 2, well... let's just say that she gets a little carried away, all by herself.

** A far less humorous example comes up far earlier on. In Nami's backstory, she makes a deal with Arlong; If she works as his cartographer, he'll sell her back her village and release her from service if she can raise 100 million beri. Years later, she's only 7 million away from that goal, but Arlong doesn't want to let her or her village go, so he has a corrupt Navy officer confiscate her stash. When Nami accuses Arlong of trying to break the deal, the bastard smugly retorts, "When did I break my word?"

* ''LightNovel/AccelWorld'': Kuroyukihime is able to get away with wearing [[NonUniformUniform a school uniform that has a black dress shirt rather than a white one]] because the school rules require her to wear an "uncolored" shirt, and black is not a color, so she placed a custom order for a black shirt and used this loophole against anyone who objected. It's unclear how she was able to get away with wearing a dark blazer rather than a blue one with her winter uniform, though.

*** A more elaborate explanation to this is that the rules forbade the use of radio interception ''airplanes'' during sensha-do matches. Saunders University (Ooarai's opponent that time) used a radio interception ''balloon.''

* Something of a meta-example concerning ''Anime/GundamBuildFighters''. When creating the anime, Sunrise was given the agreement that units from series that had been off the air for less than five years were off limits. Thus, they couldn't use suits from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Season 2'' nor ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE''. Yet, on the final episode, we see the Gundam Exia Repair II, a ''00 Season 2'' unit. How? Because the final episode aired on March 31st, 2014, 5 years and ''two days'' after ''00'' ended. The staff tweeted that the brass were ''very upset'' over this.
** An in-universe examples occurs during the third round of the World Tournament. During this round, each fighter is assigned a weapon completely at random, which range from extremely powerful to completely useless. During the battles in this round, only these weapons may be used. Mao, in particular, ends up with a rather useless paint gun, while his opponent gets a huge hammer. However, as he happily points out once the battle was over, the rules never said anything about stealing the ''opponent's'' weapon and using it against them; just that only those weapons were allowed to be used.
* ''Anime/GundamBuildFightersTry'' probably gives us the ultimate in LoopholeAbuse: "Gunpla is ''freedom''!" Strictly speaking, as long as its a Gundam or from the Gundam universe, your Gunpla can be anything. [[spoiler:Unless you're Minato Sakai and you don't bother getting permission to build a MS Girl based off of a girl you're crushing for.]]
** In the second episode, Miyaga attacks Fumina and Sekai with a Mobile Armor in their second match to decide the fate of the Gunpla Battle club. Fumina accuses him of cheating as you can't use a Mobile Armor with other Mobile Suits around in a tournament match. Miyaga points out that this isn't a tournament match, so it's all fair game.

When creating The failure of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE'' caused one of the anime, Sunrise was given the agreement that units from series networks that had been off previously aired ''Gundam'' to cancel their contracts with Sunrise. As a result, the air for less than five years ''Build Fighters'' staff was legally barred from using any mecha from any shows that had aired on that network until after their contracts expired. They found little ways to get around it (such as having a [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Gundam Spiegel]] wield the AGE-1 Spallow's knife), but the big surprise game in the final episode, when Meijin Kawaguchi III shows up with a Gundam Exia R2 -- which they were off limits.
