This is the opposite of the "[[Series/{{Supernatural}} Go to Hell, Go Directly to Hell,]] DoNotPassGo, Do Not Collect $200" Card.

Added DiffLines:

* In the Information Security industry, it is common practice for "White Hat" (ie. good) security professionals to obtain a letter indemnifying them from legal repercussions, before discovering security vulnerabilities at that organization. Such a letter, called a "Get Out of Jail Free card," is obtained from the executives and attorneys at the organization which they are evaluating. This is more important if the professional in question is not an employee of the target organization.

* From Fanfic/TheLittlePonyLegend:
** Despite the obvious issue of being a former terrorist with a laundry list of crimes under her belt, due to cooperating with the world leaders during the campaign end, [[spoiler: P'li]] is let out on probation as a guest of the Air Acolytes. She does face severe distrust in the process though, and does work on earning her keep from then on.
** Discussed again when Team Avatar and the Mane Six decide on what they should do with Starlight Glimmer. In the end, she's given one of two choices: either she goes to jail and serves her sentence, or get taken in under the care of the airbenders on Air Temple Island. By choosing to stay on Air Temple Island, she not only gets to redeem herself but also to make amends with her old friend Sunburst.

* In the political discourse - particularly regarding the economic downturn after 2007, the term "Too big to Jail" has made the rounds. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment and that is all that needs to be said on that here]].

* ''DumbAndDumber'': Harry and Lloyd were about to be thrown at a volcano when Harry produced a "Get Out of Being Thrown At a Volcano Free" card. He was allowed to leave but Lloyd still needed rescuing.

* At the end of ''{{Shooter}}'', [[spoiler: Swagger is set free by the Attorney General after the charge he was framed for, the assassination of an African archbishop, is proven false by the fact that the murder weapon could not have been used, thus he could not have fired it.]] This seems perfectly logical, but no one, not even the incognito BigBad who was sitting right next to the war council, seems to address the fact that Swagger killed a number of men and caused untold amounts of property damage between the beginning of the film and now in his quest for vengeance.

* A number of villains have gotten this treatment in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', including Trixie (in her second appearance), Discord, and (if we're to include ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]]'') Sunset Shimmer, all of whom were more or less instantly forgiven after doing some seriously bad stuff. While Trixie and Discord are justified (The former was [[TheCorruption corrupted]] by an ArtifactOfDoom and the ponies ''wanted'' to reform the latter ForTheGreaterGood, where absolvement would be a necessary part of the deal), Sunset Shimmer really has ''no'' excuse for being let off so easily.

Starlight Glimmer's seems to be the most contested, with [[BrokenBase some fans considering her a victim whose forgiveness was deserved and others considering her a heartless villainous monster that got off scott-free]].

* In pre-Flashpoint ''SecretSix'' an actual "Get out of Hell Free" card played a key role in one storyline. Pretty much every member of the team and villains outside of the team wanted it because they knew they were damned. The trope is otherwise averted: the Six go back to being straight-up villains as the series draw to a close when they realize that the good they've done as a team of Antiheroes/antivillains can't save them from eternal damnation.

* The members of the Juppongatana who were captured during the Kyoto arc of ''RurouniKenshin'' were offered these in exchange for using their skills for the Meiji government. Most of them end up taking it.
