* {{Sierra}} games can be just as bad. In the original ''VideoGame/PoliceQuest'', if you fail to check all your car's wheels, you'll get a flat tire and a GameOver. In ''LauraBow II'', if you fail to look both ways when crossing the street, you'll get hit by a car and a...

* In one ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' strip, Calvin is talking to Susie in class. When Susie tells him to stop talking, she is immediately caught by teacher, who only punishes Susie. Susie gets moved to the front of the class, and when she gets an [[RosesAreRedVioletsAreBlue insulting note]] from Calvin, she writes one in retaliation, only to get caught in the act and sent to the principal. Considering the reputation Calvin has, Wormwood's actions require some explanation. It's her job to treat all of her students fairly, even Calvin. She probably didn't hear Calvin talking. And besides, everything worked out when Susie actually gets a chance to explain everything to the principal. She got off the hook, and LaserGuidedKarma hit Calvin like a ton of bricks.
-->'''Susie''': I'm so relieved. I was afraid you wouldn't believe me.\\
'''Principal:''' (holding an overflowing folder) Oh yes, we've got quite a file on our friend Calvin...
* Parodied in one ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty'' SundayStrip, where Opus is tempted to [[ICantBelieveItsNotHeroin sniff a dandelion]] and is transformed into a bloated, discolored {{Gonk}} who declaims:
-->"Alert! The rumor regarding the effects of dandelion consumption is not, repeat, '''not''', just another reckless fabrication of an increasingly sensationalistic and liberal-leaning media establishment!"

* In Series/BlessMeFather, the sneak thief who repeatedly raids the offertory boxes at St Judes is [[ScareEmStraight ScaredStraight]] by a mighty voice from the heavens telling him his sins have been seen and that theft is a sin. In reality it's a recorded message prepared by a Creator/{{BBC}} actor who is part of the congregation, relayed via the church PA system.

* ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012'' is often subverted, as Blythe Baxter (the teen protagonist) rescues the pets from a runaway truck (while driving) in which Roger grounded her and takes her cell phone away. Unfortunately, the LPS pets recovered her cell phone to film a reaction of the aforementioned incident and show it to her dad that it is a big mistake and forgives her for taking it away, thus joining him at the Downtown City picnic. This, however, made other people so pissed off and throw things out the window unless, of course, you're dumb enough to know that young girls (like Blythe Baxter) can't drive at the age of 13 until they turn 16 and get their driver's license. Hasbro thinks it is a major joke because they couldn't get away with nuthin' at all.

* The comic book version of ''Funky Winterbean'' by ''Tom Batuk'' had him doing something dangerous such as burning down the entire office of a TV station. He didn't get caught, though, for being stupid.

* ''Literature/ThePrincessDiaries'' series by ''Creator/MegCabot'' (most recently ''Princess in the Spotlight'') is also subverted as Mia joins Lilly, causing them to make a eggplant (food item) fall out of the window and on the floor of a sidewalk just outside New York. [[spoiler:Unfortunately for Grandmere, the girls get caught. forcing them to take the blame as the eggplant was splattered all over the whole sidewalk.]] Mia Thermopolis, however, could never get away for being stupid (in which it wasn't a very trendy thing to do for a princess with a heart of gold).
