** However, this is averted when Agent Kallus pulls a HeelFaceTurn. Despite the reveal that he's now on their side (even serving as a Fulcrum agent), the rebels are not willing to forgive him because he's had several KickTheDog moments in the first 2 seasons and the tie-in comics that are quite deplorable (such as framing the Ghost crew for an assassination and orchestrating a PoisonCureGambit). Later episodes seem to indicate that Zeb still trusts him (mainly because an EnemyMine situation between them was what lead to the change of heart) and Sabine is open to a friendship between the two of them, but it takes until “Zero Hour” that the rebels fully accept that he’s become a far better man than he used to be.

* WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels:
**Ezra is upset with Hondo when it turns out he played the whole Ghost crew in "Legends of the Lasat”, though about a year later in "Steps into Shadow", he's moved past it and is glad to see him. Could be justified by Hondo being a Friendly Enemy and near harmless, but still. The rest of the crew aren’t exactly pleased to see Hondo, but their reactions are closer to “annoyed at having to deal with him and his shenanigans” than “angry that he stabbed them in the back for selfish reasons”.

**Also averted with Cikatro Vizago, the Ghost crew's former criminal contact; after he sells them out and abandons them to the Empire, the lot of them were all too happy to sever all ties with him.

* In the 1982 film of ''Film/{{Annie|1982}}'', why doesn't [[spoiler:Miss Hannigan go to jail for her part in the kidnapping, if not for the way she runs the orphanage]]? It seems that trying to stop [[spoiler:her brother]] from killing Annie is enough to make her welcome at the Warbucks festivities, even while drunk.

** Duke Devlin has most of his actions swept aside by Yugi and the others despite humiliating Joey by turning him into a dog and also threatens to expose Yugi as a cheater. [[Manga/YuGiOh The manga]] however gave him a FreudianExcuse and also began viewing Yugi as WorthyOpponent and perform a HeelFaceTurn when he realised he doesn't hate the Mutou family as much as his father, even trying to lend a helping hand to Yugi and his other friends.

** Seto Kaiba repeatedly tried to kill the protagonists in the early manga, including Tristan's year old nephew who just happened to be with them at the time. One of the ways was locking them in a house with a child mass murderer. They do hold a bit of a grudge for a while, but still forgive him far too quickly.

** ''Fanfic/AftermathOfTheGames'': Justified and {{Deconstructed|Trope}}; Everybody forgives Sci-Twi for what she did as Midnight Sparkle, aware of the fact that Cinch blackmailed and bullied her into unleashing magic, and because she was not as cruel as Sunset had been. However, Sci-Twi still haunted by her actions and fears the chance it could happen again. She's also left wondering why Cinch doesn't deserve the same treatment until Sunset explains that, unlike Sci-Twi, [[NeverMyFault the principal refused to take responsibility for her actions]] and [[TheSociopath didn't care if people were almost hurt or killed in order to guarantee her legacy]].
** It is also justified InUniverse: unlike Sunset, Sci-Twi wasn't a bully, and she only was pushed into releasing the magic by the pressure Cinch was putting on her.

* At the end of the UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar, a 4-year conflict that resulted in over 600,000 deaths, the defeated Southern states were brought back into the Union without any sanctions or harsh measures. While some parts of the South would be occupied by federal troops for years, no members of the confederate military or government were ever put on trial for treason[[note]]though some of them were exiled and died [[ManWithoutACountry without a country]]; all had their citizenship posthumously restored[[/note]]. Likewise, the vast majority of Confederate veterans returned home to become peaceful productive citizens of the United States, despite spending the last four years viewing the US as a mortal enemy. This was in keeping with the wishes of President Abraham Lincoln, who in his 1865 inauguration speech stated "With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations."

* In ''Disney/TheIncredibles'', the Incredible family easily befriend Mirage after she betrays Syndrome and helps them escape the island...despite the fact that she took part in the murders of all the other supers and was the one who got Mr. Incredible kidnapped in the first place. Granted, they were [[RaceAgainstTheClock running on a clock to stop Syndrome and the Omnidroid]] and the government agent Bob is friends with later states that Syndrome's assets were frozen and his henchmen arrested, so Mirage most likely would still face jail time assuming she didn't cut a deal with authorities or ran off herself after helping.
