* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'':
** In Episode 56, the AlphaBitch Pretty gets away with forcefully taking a horse away from Kaeloo, and shooting a horse with a gun just because she doesn't like it. In Episode 82, [[spoiler: Kaeloo and Mr. Cat succeed in getting her humiliated on the news.]]
** Whenever Mr. Cat is driving his car, his jerkassery levels increase. Examples of this include deliberately driving at a ridiculously slow speed in order to slow Kaeloo down when she's in a hurry since her car is behind his, or in another episode, ramming his car into Kaeloo's because she's going too slow and he's behind her. In Episode 134, Stumpy, who is angry at Mr. Cat, gets a bunch of clones of himself, who destroy the car... by holding an impromptu demolition derby while Mr. Cat is driving.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'': Brian Irons had raped a fellow student during his university days and completely got away with it due to his "outstanding excellence in academics". After becoming Chief of Police, he took bribes from Umbrella on a routine basis and blocked all investigations and claims performed by S.T.A.R.S. after the Mansion Incident in the first game, which basically meant that no one could do anything against him. Once the T-Virus broke out in Raccoon City, Irons then took down the remaining survivors in the police precinct and killed the mayor's daughter just to drag everyone down with him. It isn't until the mutated William Birkin kills him that Irons finally reaps what he sows.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'': In "Deadly Force," Tony Dracon is implied to have been a KarmaHoudini throughout his life at the time of his first appearance. He came up with ways to hide his involvement with various crimes and thus never had to stand trial. This trope bites him hard in the end when Goliath and Broadway have him and his cohorts captured and with evidence of their arms dealing in plain view in order to incriminate them.

** [[spoiler:Although by Central Fiction, while it's unknown how, we might be seeing Hazama/Terumi gluing his warranty again, because he's back. We'll just see how successful the gluing is once it's revealed HOW he survived. As it turns out, both Relius and Terumi managed to glue back their warranties, since Terumi turns out to be Susano'o, a PhysicalGod and the original soul possessing the SUSANOO unit inhabited by Hakumen and goes to wreck more havoc... until Ragna himself tore it anew and burnt it to ash. Unfortunately, Relius managed to keep his warranty intact this time around.]]

** Othinus was hit with this big time too. Being one of the strongest characters in the series and a literal PhysicalGod that only few figures had hopes of matching against, and she pretty much kicked the ass of everyone including Touma himself. As the fact that she was the leader of a terrorist organization that plotted to eliminate technology, is a BadBoss to her subjects, tormented the lives of everyone that stood against her, ''succeeded in destroying the world'', and finally mental torturing Touma to force him to give up his Imagine Breaker. The moment she pulls a HeelFaceTurn, her warranty immediately expires. The entire world wants her dead, she gets stripped of all her powers by gods stronger than her to the point that she's shrunk down to FunSize, is forced to rely on people she once looked down on for protection, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking catches a cold]].
