* In ''Fanfic/ForHisOwnSake'', all of the Hinata Girls suffer a massive HumiliationConga after Keitaro, who finally grew a spine after years of "comedic" abuse, leaves the Inn and dumps Naru, and, in trying to undo those, RealityEnsues hard on them. So far only Hina, Naru, Motoko and Mutsumi are still trying to get an extension of their warranty, but everything points that [[HoistByHisOwnPetard their own bad choices will keep bitting even harder]].

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': D'Hoffryn is last seen in Season 7 victorious, being allowed to kill Anya's friend Halfrek to punish her before disappearing, and continuing this streak throughout the Season 9 comics. His streak finally comes to an end at the end of the Season 10 comics, where he's been elevated to BigBad; [[spoiler: after killing the members of the Magic Council to steal their powers and killing the Anya replica for defying him, he's abandoned by his fellow Vengeance demons for betraying one of his own, stripped of his stolen powers, and rendered helpless before Buffy, who [[OffWithHisHead slices his head off]].]]



* Will Harangue from ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'' somehow managed to get away with creating a KillerRobot and sending it to kill Ben, even avoiding to get arrested. As a result, most of his appearances in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' essentially consist in him getting everything in the face: [[LesCollaborateurs him supporting the Inkurseans' invasion of Earth]] in "Frogs of War" causes him to lose ratings when the occupation is over, and he eventually [[KarmicTransformation gets turned against his will into an alien]].

* In the ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' comic strip, an alien CorruptCorporateExecutive named Joshua Dogbolter acted as a recurring villain in a lengthy arc in the early-to-mid eighties, but then disappeared from the strip unpunished for his many crimes due to a change of writer [[AbortedArc aborting the arc]]. "The Stockbridge Showdown", a MilestoneCelebration strip in the magazine's 500th issue, centred around the Doctor finally defeating him.

* Jeffy from ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'' constantly [[ButtMonkey makes Mario miserable]] and [[IdiotHoudini never seems to learn anything from it]]. For a while, he rarely, if ever, had anything bad happen to him. Following the backlash that the episode, "Locked Out!" received for having Jeffy get away with locking Mario out of his house and getting Mario arrested, karma seems to be catching up with Jeffy. In "[[ThanksgivingEpisode Turkey Tyranny!]]", when Jeffy throws his dinner plate, Mario gives Jeffy a time-out by making him face a wall for the rest of the episode. Then, in "Franchise/{{Shrek}} [[BabysittingEpisode the Babysitter!]]", [[spoiler: as punishment for locking him in the bathroom and eating his [[TrademarkFavoriteFood cheesecake]], Shrek punishes both Jeffy and Bowser Junior by locking them in the bathroom, where the toilet is clogged up by his poop.]]

* Cal Hockley in ''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}''. He treats Rose like crap throughout the film and tries to have Jack arrested, but ends up surviving the sinking. [[spoiler: However, as far as he knew, Rose perished and the Heart of the Ocean was lost forever. Later, he lost all his money in the stock market crash of 1929 and committed suicide.]]

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' has this happen to Jaime Lannister early on in Season 3. After two full seasons of getting away with stuff like [[spoiler:trying to kill a child who discovered him committing incest with his twin sister]] and [[spoiler:actually killing his own cousin for momentary advantage]], he got off pretty lightly as a [[spoiler:relatively well-treated prisoner of war who was to be returned home as part of a hostage exchange]]. In fact, one of the first genuinely kind and (almost) selfless things he's ever shown doing is intervening to prevent Brienne from being raped when it becomes apparent she's too outnumbered by attackers to defend herself for long. And it works... [[spoiler:but their captors take umbrage at Jaime's superior attitude in doing so, and cut off his sword hand in what basically amounts to an act of senseless spite.]]

** Ramsey Snow/Bolton always gets away with the horrible things that he did since Season 3 such as hunting down and flaying his victims, [[spoiler:torturing and castrating Theon and raping Sansa during their wedding night]]. Despite that his dad, [[PragmaticVillainy Roose Bolton]], called him out on his [[StupidEvil needless violence]] which would affect their relations to the rest of the Northern houses, Ramsey had none of it [[spoiler:and killed his own dad, taking control of their house]]. Then, he continues being a murdering asshole much to the viewers’ annoyance. Unfortunately for Ramsey, his time is up [[spoiler:when his forces are overrun by the combined forces of Stark loyalists, the Wildings and Knights of the Vale and Jon Snow cornered him at Winterfell and beat him up into a bloody pulp. To add the cherry on top, Sansa finally got back at him for his horrible actions by feeding him to his own dogs]].

* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' ends with [[ManipulativeBastard Akio]] having his sister Anthy, who he had manipulated and abused for countless years along with everyone else at the school, walk out on him after telling him that he can continue to play prince in his own little world but ''she'' has to find Utena. The implications of the final shot featuring him are quite dark, since he's all alone and overshadowed by his massive office, and it's implied that without Anthy has has no real power and his actions will catch up to him soon.

* In the ''[[LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}} Monogatari]]'' series, Daiki seems to get away with scamming kids with little more than Koyomi's stern warning for him to never return. When he ''does'' return, he is implied to have gained some remorse over his past actions (not that he's going to admit it), so he goes out of his way to save Koyomi from a Snake God-influenced Nadeko and convince her to move on from her obsession with him, even if he has little to gain, or without the direct involvement of Kanbaru, the only person in town he has ever shown kindness to. And all it got him was [[spoiler:a potentially fatal wound from one of the boys he scammed in the past]].
