* Invoked in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys when a time-traveling King Arthur is deposited in Hercules' time. This version of Arthur is an evil, murdering, asshole and he goes through an eventual heel-face turn after Hercules points out that tyrannical kings are usually remembered like this.

* In the ''Literature/{{Tamuli}}'' novel ''The Shining Ones'', Thalesian nuisance heir and TheNapoleon Avin Wargunson was summarily knocked off in a particularly insulting way (stuffed in a barrel of wine with the lid nailed shut). Given his ZeroPercentApprovalRating, when they finally held his funeral, the congregation tried (and failed miserably) to contain their mirth. The entire country then spent the next week celebrating his death; his death was both the best thing to happen to them and a great memory to get through the cold winter there.

Added DiffLines:

* In one episode of ''MalcolmInTheMiddle'', a stuck-up critic reviews the hotel Francis and Piama work at in the cruelest, most condescending way. When said reviewer insults Piama, Francis and hotel-owner Otto beat the crap out of him. The day said review is to go in the paper, instead there is an article about how the guy was beaten up, with the hotel getting sent tons of thank you notes from other victims of his "critiquing", along with reservations from other booked hotels.

* There may not have been literal rejoicing when the obnoxious [[TheLoad Lucky Larry]] got squashed by the machinery in ''Poseidon'', but none of the band of survivors was particularly broken up about it. Was one of the better SFX shots of the film, too.

** This appears to be the response to any act of violence witnessed by the inmates. A notable exception is when Simon Adebisi, a [[ScaryBlackMan feared Nigerian gangster]] who's been ruling Em City as a trustee, is killed--the initial reaction is a shocked gasp of disbelief from both inmates and guards, as Adebisi seemed so {{Badass}} he couldn't be killed by ''anyone''.

* Odgen Nash's poem "The Boy Who Laughed at Santa Claus" relates the morality tale of Jabez Dawes, an [[{{Jerkass}} unrepentant brat]] who denied the existence of Santa Claus, until Kris Kringle turned him into a jack-in-the-box in retaliation. Which leads to the following stanza:
