But if you're writing fiction, and you want comedy, going the Disproportionate Restitution route is a old standby. That's making the restitution far ''less'' than the offense merits.

* Eric Cartman in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' once tried to make up for all the bad things he did because he thought that he had died, and could only reach heaven through redemption. His big idea: make everyone a fruit basket. This included Scott Tenorman, the surviving victim of Eric's crossing of the MoralEventHorizon.[[note]][[RefugeInAudacity How did Eric not go to jail for that, after gloating about it in front of the whole town?]][[/note]] A fruit basket with an 'I'm sorry' card, that's it.

* In ''Series/BlackBooks'', Bernard and Manny, while housesitting, have just consumed a bottle of wine worth around £10,000. Manny suggests they make up for it by buying the owner...a pencil.
* Done in this ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oeSFAIKaX4 sketch.]]

* Played for laughs on ''TopGear'' road trips, where the presenters amuse themselves by buying each other odd, useless, or bulky presents... and then sometimes buy even larger and less useful replacement presents for ones that they accidentally break or lose. Can lead to a highly entertaining EscalatingWar.

** In another episode, he feels quite put upon for being made to apologise for ''infecting Kyle with [=AIDs=]''. Kyle however snaps and begins a more proportionate restitution of tearing apart his room.

* Has happened from time to time in ''Literature/HarryPotter''. One example that jumps to mind was when Harry spent the entire fifth book as the subject of a propagandic smear campaign from the Ministry of Magic, making him a social outcast and hated by the wizard community. And he's tortured by a sadistic Ministry garrison at Hogwarts. When he proves himself right and is a public hero again, the new Minister of Magic (who appears to have done bugger-all to improve the Ministries methods), offers him a chance to "be friends," so he can look good by leeching off Hary's great PR. Harry is quite pissed, particularly when he sees that the aforementioned sadist still had her job. [[spoiler: He does, however, refuse to give up Harry's location when the Death Eaters torture him for it, and they subsequently torture him ''to death''.]]
