* ''Amanda Green, Superhuman Insurance Agent'' is pretty much this trope in the form of a webcomic. Amanda is not a ''superhuman'' insurance agent, she's an agent who sells ''superhuman insurance'': e.g. insurance against any superhuman-related losses caused by super heroes and super villains alike.

* In ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII'', Doc and Marty hijack a train at gunpoint to push the [=DeLorean=] up to eighty-eight miles per hour, in the process running the train off the edge of a ravine, [[EveryCarIsAPinto causing it to explode]]. Everyone is apparently okay with this to such an extent that they ''rename the ravine after Marty''.

Though there is long tradition of naming or renaming landmarks after people who came to a sticky end there, like Donner Pass.

* ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'': Since the superheroes are a hybrid of military and police officers, most of the damages they do are covered under insurance. But they're still warned that it's best not to cause those damages in the first place; slamming someone into the ground (which is probably owned by the city) is far cheaper and less likely to make people mad than to throw a privately-owned car as a weapon.

* The whole premise of the Creator/DCComics series ''Series/{{Powerless}}''. The show examines how a normal person living in the Franchise/DCUniverse would react to all the chaos and collateral damage caused by superheroes and their villains.

* ''MahouSenseiNegima'' does a HandWave saying that the people of the magic world in a city known for its dueling and gladiator fights are used to this sort of thing and have measures in place to deal with it. Apparently up to and including buildings being chopped to pieces. Naturally, this doesn't stop Negi from worrying about it anyway. The implication seems to be that the loser(s) of the fight is made to pay for the damages. One has to wonder what happens if the loser ends up dead, if that's the case.

* ''{{LightNovel/Slayers}}''. Though, the poor innocent villagers probably ''would'' make Lina pay for the damage... if they could catch her. Averted; in fact it's a running gag. She's basically what you get if you turn [[{{Trigun}} Vash the Stampede]] into a sorceress and take away the insurance girls. While the audience/readers and her close friend know she is a hero, her path of destruction has made her a feared villainess in her world, to the point a SympatheticInspectorAntagonist got away with arresting her with the charge of ''being Lina Inverse''. Even when she does something truly heroic and redeemable, she blows it by losing her cool and nuking the town she just saved. She rarely gets to claim her reward because it will likely be the down payment on rebuild the town from the ground up around the huge crater she just made.

* Happens at least once in ''Anime/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders'', when [[TheHero Jotaro's]] first [[FightingSpirit Stand]] [[PowersDoTheFighting battle]] nearly collapses his entire school. He never faces any consequences for it; [[JustifiedTrope granted,]] nobody knows he was responsible as [[InvisibleToNormals only Stand users can see each other's Stands.]]
** In the 1993 Stardust Crusaders OriginalVideoAnimation, Jotaro's Stand, Star Platinum ''tears off the top half of a minaret'' and throws it at [[BigBad [=DIO.=]]] Once again, nobody ever calls him out on having destroyed a possibly very old and significant religious building.

* Deconstructed in ''TheUltimates'', where one of the Hulk's massive rampages results in many deaths and millions of dollars in property damages -- and Bruce Banner on trial for crimes against humanity.

** This issue comes up in ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman''. Without Superman to help clean up the aftermath, everyone in Metropolis is left trying to figure out what to do with the mess that was left. Flash and Green Lantern did help to repair the house of one family that was leveled in an early part of the battle.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanUnlimitedMechVsMutants'' sees a literal version of this, as ComicBook/GreenArrow, himself a superhero who's really rich and owns a company like Batman, decides to throw a mutated Chemo into a building he already owned and notes he's insured.
