* ''VideoGame/NoMansSky'': The Sentinels are ''not'' pushovers, and they are literally everywhere in the universe. Getting them really angry is a quick way to get yourself shot down, and will even chase you into space if you try fleeing a world in your starship.

*** Also, in the "Shivering Isles" DLC for Oblivion, similar things happen in one of the two towns there. Given that this is a very magical place, the cowl's magic doesn't work. However, if you complete the main storyline, you gain clothes that give you the exact same ability as the cowl to go off without getting your main character busted.

Mainly because at the end of Shivering Isles, you ''ARE'' [[MadGod Sheogorath]], which means you're the law's ''[[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem boss]]''.

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''; challenging the CityWatch is inadvisable, as they tend to be max level. The game has guards in neutral zones where players from different sides aren't supposed to kill each other. If one player attacks another, the guards kill the instigator. People have found numerous ways around this, but Blizzard tends to block a few more methods with each upgrade. (And don't even ''think'' about trying to enter enemy territory. You won't last long.)

So, you think you're bad, huh? You eat Dragons ([[TheDragon both]] [[OurDragonsAreDifferent kinds]]) for breakfast. You're WEARING the Level {{Cap}}. You're carrying so many Ancient Artifacts of Game-Breaking Power that you start [[PowerGlows glowing]] whenever you turn around. NOTHING can stop you!

...unless, of course, you piss off The Law.

These aren't your average, overweight [[DonutMessWithACop donutmunchers]]. These law enforcers, whether they're plate-armored [[CityGuards city guards]] or patrol ships in outer space, are [[SuicidalOverconfidence suicidally brave]], [[LightningBruiser tough as nuts]], and/or attack in [[HammerspacePoliceForce endless waves]]. If you're ''really'' unlucky, every one of them is an InvincibleMinorMinion. It doesn't matter how hard you are -- the only way to survive is to run. If you try to take a stand, you'll be trounced sooner or later, and they NEVER STOP. So just pick up your {{Upgrade Artifact}}s and your Level Cap and get outta town before I run ya in for loitering, punk!

Piss off The Law.

** As long as you remain in secure space, CONCORD will respawn at your position until your ship is destroyed. If you were thinking of leaving secure space to escape them, they have locked down the jumpgates to keep you here. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything They will even use "mysterious voodoo" on your ship to keep you from escaping via wormhole.]] If you still manage to find some way to escape their wrath... they will declare you a cheater abusing an exploit and you'll be banned. However, while CONCORD (the Po Po) may believe ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill, even [[StreetFighter CONCORDOKKEN]] isn't punishment enough when DeathIsCheap and [[SuicideAttack suicide]] [[{{Griefer}} griefing]] is a [[BerserkButton fiercely defended]] playstyle.

* Guards in ''{{Avernum}}'' are finite, and even beatable at higher levels, but they have a special trait that makes them more effective against player characters than against monsters.

* Happens in ''{{Crackdown}}''. If you kill too many [[strike:cops]] peacekeepers or civilians too quickly, the peacekeepers will go nuts and start mass-spawning all around you. Mind you, they are {{Red Shirt}}s and you're a SuperSoldier, but if you keep killing them, the hate meter stays topped and they'll never stop coming.

* Michael from the ''KnightAndRogueSeries'' refuses to bring in a murder suspect who he discovers is innocent, knowing that the court he's expected to take her too will be stacked against her for political reasons. Unfortunately, he's required by law to catch her, and his refusal to bring her in gets him branded as a criminal.
