* Actually enforced by law in Namorn, one of the nations in the ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'' setting - the punishment for an arsonist whose fires killed people is to be burned alive at the site of their greatest crime. The BigBad of ''Cold Fire'' dies this way.

* In the finale of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', Aku gets a fittingly karmic demise in double doses.
** Future Aku meets his end when his daughter Ashi uses her newly awakened powers, which were intended to be used to kill Jack, to send Jack back to the past and enable him to kill Aku, resulting in Future Aku being erased from existence. He was also close to victory before his chance being snatched away from him at the last minute, as he did with Jack when he taunted him after destroying the last time portal.
** Past Aku ends up killed by Jack when the samurai returns from the future, where Aku sent him to in the first place. With all the years of experience Jack obtained from being trapped in the future, he easily overpowers Aku. What makes Past Aku's final fate especially karmic is that he ends up dying the same way as many of his victims: completely terrified while faced against an opponent far too strong for him to so much as scratch, let alone defeat.

** A case of karmic suicide: [[spoiler:in the backstory, [[AmbiguouslyEvil The First]] [[GreaterScopeVillain Fallen Child]] killed themself with buttercups, with which they earlier poisoned their adoptive father Asgore. It should be noted though that this particular method of suicide was chosen for different reason than just karmic irony: in order for [[ThanatosGambit their plan]] to work, everyone had to believe they succumbed to a disease. When Asgore was poisoned, everyone mistook the symptoms for a serious illness and The Fallen hoped that it would happen again.]]

* In ''Fanfic/LovedAndLost'', Prince Jewelius convinces Queen Chrysalis to invade Equestria as per the second season finale and double-crosses her to rule Equestria alone. When he's eventually defeated by the good guys, he pathetically begs for help from Chrysalis. Instead, she takes her revenge by having her Changelings to [[EatenAlive eat Jewelius]] who doesn't have any love for them to feed on. The scene has distinct similarities with the death of [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar]] (see the Films -- Animation section below).

* Michael Horrigan's death at the climax of ''Film/HaloNightfall''--being eaten by feral Lekgolo worms--is well-deserved, considering he'd been an inexcusable {{jerkass}} to the ONI team's Sedran companions, then topped that by [[spoiler:in succession, using one of their prisoners as bait for the Lekgolo, turning on his CO Jameson Locke and leaving him to die, then [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves using his fellow traitor Greg Ramos as bait for the Lekgolo]], and finally gunning down the other prisoner to stop him leaving him behind.]]
