Normally when something bad happens you feel some degree of pity for them. But then when that person is such a {{Jerkass}} that when horrible things happen to them it is less sympathy and more satisfaction. They are not directly responsible for THIS particular misfortune, as that would be LaserGuidedKarma, but their behavior means something like this was going to happen eventually. This can range from the victim merely being a dick to being a far worse criminal than the person he or she is a victim to.

* Played with in "The Cell Block Tango" in ''Theatre/{{Chicago}}''; all the ladies but The Hunyak swear up and down that they didn't do it but if they ''did'', their victims were such bastards that they utterly deserved it. Whether they are to be believed is open to question. (All The Hunyak says is that she didn't do it.)

Compare PayEvilUntoEvil, where otherwise evil actions are portrayed as OK as long as the victims deserve it. KickTheSonOfABitch is when the bad guy is genuinely malicious, but their victim just happened to be an asshole.

* ”Literature/TheIronTeeth” web serial’s forests are haunted by many different types of dangerous monsters. They are incredibly dangerous and a lot of people perish within them.

While the RealLife violent deaths of certain dictators and certain kinds of criminals might qualify for this trope, which ones qualified and which ones didn't would be endlessly debated, so we ask that you [[NoRealLifeExamplesPlease refrain from adding such Real Life examples]].
