Unfortunately for the focus of the story, every single thing they do [[PlagueOfGoodFortune is appreciated by the intended victims]], from telling them their hat looks stupid ("What? Oh! I hadn't realized I'd put on the wrong hat this morning!") to burning down their house ("Thank you! That house was full of hideous artwork insured for well more than it was worth! I can finally buy medicine for my sick children, and a house that doesn't have asbestos leaking from the ceiling!"). This even happens when the character would normally get in trouble with the victims [[HairTriggerTemper for purely imagined]] [[{{Tsundere}} slights.]] The gratefulness is usually in direct proportion to the heinousness of the misdeed.

* In an episode of ''Series/{{Batman}}'', the Penguin, acting as a respected restaurateur as part of a CivilianVillain scheme, has considerable difficulty when he actively ''tries'' to get thrown in prison so that he can consult an expert forger criminal colleague. When he was finally sent to prison, he learned [[spoiler: the colleague was just getting released]].

* Donny Osmond tells the story of being encouraged by his agent to rack up a minor arrest or two to get rid of his squeaky-clean image as a young adult. On one occasion, he saw his chance while walking ahead of a random cop, so he turned back nervously and started running. The cop stopped him but let him go as soon as he saw the name on his ID. Osmond later recounted that while it's long been said that a would-be actor "couldn't even get arrested in Hollywood", he had never heard of it being literally true until it happened to him. Unfortunately for his youngest sister, ''MarieOsmond'', he was released from prison.

** Also subverted as Camille Leon (disguised as Kim Possible) snuck into Club Banana (without Monique's permission) and stole the designs so she could make pirated clothing, framing the teenage girl (a la ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''). Camille Leon's evil plan of making pirated clothing was foiled as Ron finds out that his girlfriend is the real thing (and not a fake and a flake) (similar to Flash the Wonder Dog from ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers''). Unfortunately, Mr. Barkin was also arrested by the fashion police for [[spoiler:crossdressing as a woman with a rubber chicken]] as his actual punishment during the end of the episode, aptly titled "Fashion Victim".
