* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': ** When Ruby fights Roman and Neo on top of a flying battleship, she's knocked down and hangs from the side of the ship helplessly. Neo leans on her unopened weaponised parasol to kick Ruby off the ship, allowing Ruby to grab the parasol's catch; it opens, catches the wind and blows Neo off the ship, while Ruby regains her footing. Roman then brutally beats Ruby to the ground, ranting about her misguided idealism in a savage world where most huntsmen die young. [[spoiler:His heightened negativity attracts the negativity-sensing Monsters of Grimm, and one swallows him whole just as he's stating that the only thing that matters is survival skill.]]

* [[MeaningfulName Manfred Von Karma]] of ''VisualNovel/{{Phoenix Wright|Ace Attorney}}'' of course, though it's debatable whether he was sent to life in prison or was given capital punishment. Phoenix does a turnabout and proves that Von Karma shot and killed Edgeworth's father when Edgeworth threw a gun and triggered the bullet to hit him. Von Karma goes through a long series of events to get Edgeworth guilty of either that murder, or the murder of another man. Why he didn't just wait a few days after the Statute of Limitations to frame Edgeworth for this other murder so that he couldn't be proved guilty is a bit boggling.
** He wanted Edgeworth to believe he had murdered his own father (not just to get found guilty for another murder), which he wouldn't have been able to bring up in court unless he brought the case before the statue of limitations expired. Which means, surprise, his desire for a very specific sort of revenge helped lead to his downfall.
