The character has done a number of things that deserve a karmic comeuppance, most importantly things that caused harm to the innocent. But when the time comes for the [[LaserGuidedKarma hammer]] to fall, that's not what happens. At least, not on him. He ''doesn't'' get what he deserves. Instead, he gets away scot-free. He is forgiven, maybe even praised, even getting elected president. And he might even have ''reversed'' the HumiliationConga that was being planned for him.

Don't mistake a lack of direct karma for this trope. If a character, for example, commits a heinous crime and no one ever finds out about it, but something suitably bad happens to them, they've still gotten their just desserts.

desserts even though the lightning had no connection to their crime.

Note that a character doesn't necessarily need to be a villain, or even evil, to qualify for this trope. They may simply end up doing unnecessarily hurtful things, yet not suffer the repercussions. Worse comes to worst, a stolen happy ending may take place at the expense of the [[ButtMonkey hapless victim]].
