** [[AlphaBitch Diamond Tiara]] is a [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] example. She mercilessly bullies the [[PowerTrio Cutie Mark Crusaders]], sometimes in the presence of adults, and [[KarmaHoudini seldom gets punished for it]].

* SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom makes frequent attempts to take over the world that would be considered acts of war by real world standards, and most governments in the world just ignore him. No wonder he feels he better suited to rule the world. This may count as FridgeBrilliance though: maybe world leaders have gotten the clue that all Doom wants is to keep having his little tiff with Reed Richards, so they just lay low and let the ComicBook/FantasticFour deal with him to avoid getting targeted and devastated by Doom rather than just battered a bit in the crossfire.

** He finally reveals the truth when their boss is about to go to jail and everyone is honestly shocked when Dave sighs that "it's all his evil plan. You know, the evil plan I've been warning you about for ''weeks?''"

* Angelica of ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', though occasionally she ''did'' get caught. Her role was eventually trumped by Savannah Shane in both ''Rugrats Preschool Daze'' and ''AllGrownUp''. However, unlike Angelica, she has yet to receive any ''real'' comeuppance or consequences.

** A better example would be the one-time character Hat [=McCulloch=], a murderer of 23 babies who has a very large following of fans who believe his innocence. [[spoiler: At the end, when they ''do'' get him released from jail, the man [[TourettesShitCockSyndrome seems to blurt out "Kill the innocent" and "Rape the virgins"]], and then finally [[SchmuckBait asks for a baby]], who [[BlackComedy the townspeople promptly hand over]].]]

** During the grand finale, Schneizel is the bonus boss [[spoiler:after Lelouch successfully killed his psycho parents]], because he's in control of an entire army that should hate his guts but is unquestioning towards his orders, while commanding a giant floating airbase with a primary weapon system that fires [[spoiler:Freya]] NUKES at infantry units, and nobody seems to care that even though his opponent is[[spoiler:/seems like]] a tyrant, he's basically the frickin' demon lord. Schneizel reveals his grand plan to Cornelia: take over the world by [[spoiler:nuking everything that resists or keeps fighting in civil wars, with the black knights basically prohibiting freedom in the name of justice]]. She's absolutely disgusted by this and his previous [[spoiler:nuking of his own capital to silence any evidence of hope in the form of Geass]], but his second in command and media director are in awe and worship of this.

* Pretty much the entire plot of the ''[[Franchise/StarWars Star Wars prequels]]''. [[EvilChancellor Palpatine]] is [[BigBad Darth Sidious]] and behind everything, which the audience [[DramaticIrony knows from the start.]]

* Pretty much the entire plot of the ''[[Franchise/StarWars Star Wars prequels]]''. [[EvilChancellor Palpatine]] is [[BigBad Darth Sidious]] and behind everything, which the audience [[DramaticIrony knows from the start.]]start]]. According to the [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse expanded universe]], this trope plays out in-universe as well in the sense that yes, there were those who distrusted Palpatine, not the least of which being the Jedi, but they didn't think him to be Sidious himself because he was ''too obvious''.

* ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'': Scanty and Kneesocks, quite literally. Not even the [[BigRedDevil red skin]], [[HornedHumanoid horns]], devil tails or the fact they were actually called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin ''The Demon Sisters'']] ringed any bells to Panty and Stocking about the obvious truth about them.
