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.

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]].
