* One ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' cartoon, "Stooge For A Mouse", had a mouse destroying the friendship between Sylvester the Cat and a bulldog all so he could get some cheese. At the end of the cartoon, the two are pummeled senseless by the mouse's last prank and, as he heads for the cheese, the magnet he used to perpetrate the last prank ends up pulling a ceiling lamp down on top of him, knocking him senseless.
** ''Chow Hound'', and its infamous ending, "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aH7bEytedtE This time, we DIDN'T forget the gravy!]]"

* Especially common in adventure games by {{Sierra}} such as ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory'' and ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'', being based off of TheHerosJourney and MegaCrossover FairyTales respectively. Kill a rare flower? You'll eventually get turned into one. Fail to stop a cat from attacking a rat? [[{{Unwinnable}} Well now who's going to chew through your ropes]]?

** One chapter features Kenshin pitted against a foe by the name of Senkaku, a towering, hulking pinheaded thug armed with bladed knuckles, the same speed which our hero can achieve, and is the bullish tyrant who dominated a village for his master's conquests, going as far as even murdering a boy's family for the simple act of leaving. Though he hopes to best Kenshin to gain brownie points from his boss, he is tricked into utterly tearing apart his knee muscles from being goaded into speeding up as fast as our hero, who had better training to adjust to his level of agility, and used his hulking mass to his advantage, by merely gradually speeding up and forcing him to his limits. After this, he is subjected to three people's verbal breakdowns: one from Kenshin, who lets Senkaku know why his body gave out, and puts him under fire for his atrocities, bringing to him the realization of his actions; one from Saito, who explains how Kenshin's tactics worked, and gives him a faceful of ironic humble pie; and one from his aforementioned boss, Shishio, who nails it in that he knew from the start that he had no chance in hell of defeating Kenshin, but plans on killing him personally for being embarrassingly defeated by not even getting his foe to draw his sword, letting him know of how much worth he truly is to his master and ups the shame factor to 11. By the end of this, he is shipped off to the authorities to be tortured and up on the block for Death Row, while the anime shows that he escapes- [[spoiler: And is put to death by Sojiro, who still follows the group's "Kill or Be Killed" mentality and is not convinced of his turn of cheek.]]

** In "Zanzibar", one of the songs warns not to pollute or "you'll get what you deserve". At the end when Ed is angry for Conglom-O making him clean up O-Town, he sings about how he doesn't care about the environment and sprays a can of aerosol into the air. The resulting [=CFCs=] eat a hole in the ozone layer and he gets burned by a blast of radiation.

* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta 2}}'' has Alraune, who sought to use Jeanne's soul to gain more power for herself after Jeanne got DraggedOffToHell. Aside from getting her ass kicked by a pissed off Bayonetta, who [[RoaringRampageOfRescue tore through Inferno just to save Jeanne]], her ultimate fate is deliciously ironic: [[spoiler:Rodin uses ''her'' soul in order to create a new weapon for Bayonetta]].



* ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'' has an entire achievement revolving around eliminating your targets non-lethally, aptly named "Poetic Justice". High Overseer Campbell, the most corrupt member of his order, can be branded with a special brand that makes him a public outcast, the corrupt aristocrats Morgan and Custis Pendleton can be abducted by a street gang, who will shave them, cut out their tongues, and put them to work in their own silver mine, and Lady Boyle can be delivered to her stalker. The crowning example, though, is Lord Regent Hiram Burrows. By playing his audiodiary over the city's PSA system, it exposes his role in not only the empress's assassination, but also the rat plague that's been devastating Dunwall, for the whole city to hear.

* ''MagicTheGathering'' has It That Betrays, a card that makes any card your opponent sacrfices yours. It also makes your opponent sacriice two cards each time it attacks. Given that Eldrazi (the creature type It That Betrays is a member of) cause people to sacrifice permanents...this is more like Laser Guided Theft.
* In {{Traveller}} judicial slavery is sometimes used as an alternative to capital punishment in the Sword Worlds. If this is interpreted to imply that this is the penalty for human trafficing which seems likely, then the poetic justice of this is rather grimly amusing.
