* SantaClaus becomes one in the ChristmasSpecial ''Santa Claus is Coming to Town'', after the grouchy and ill-tempered lawmaker [[TheGrinch Burgermeister Meisterburger]] outlaws toys. (Among other things, this explains why Santa grows a beard, travels at night, and access houses via chimney. The outlaw status persists for several years, but is eventually lifted after Meisterburger's family dies off and citizens reject his silly ideas, regarding Santa as a hero.

The term "outlaw" reaches back to at least Old Norse; it denotes a person who has been declared guilty of a crime in absentia and has chosen to escape for whatever reason, and is thus placed outside the protection of the law. Members of the community were forbidden to aid or abet the outlaw in any way lest [[PunishedForSympathy they suffer the same punishment as the outlaw]], and as they were outside the protection of the law, [[{{Unperson}} they had no legal rights, meaning anyone could kill them with impunity]]. Thus, the outlaw could not live in the community, but was forced to flee to the wilderness or another country to try to survive until their sentence of outlawry expired or their relatives could somehow lift it. At the time, there were no established prisons or dedicated police, so long-term imprisonment was rare. In the medieval age, an outlaw was called a "wolfshead," meaning that he or she was equated to a wolf in the eyes of the law, and was to be hunted down like one.

* The ''Jon Shannow'' books by Creator/DavidGemmell, being set in an AfterTheEnd western, has a lot of them, like Daniel Cade. They're usually the main antagonists of the book until the real BigBad shows up.

** During the trial of King UsefulNotes/LouisXVI, the revolutionary Saint-Just declared the King "Hors la loi!" (Outside the Law). He pointed out that as a result of France becoming a republic, the earlier constitution declaring the King inviolable was invalid. Furthermore, the King himself had violated that same constitution during the Flight to Varennes[[note]]where he and the Queen had intended to unleash an army of French emigres and Austrians on the French people but were caught in the frontier town of Varennes, totally disillusioning the French people[[/note]]. As such, the National Convention can't possibly consider ''itself''(as representatives of the Revolution) and the King [[LogicBomb legitimate at the same time]]. The subsequent, trial revealed new evidence of the King's guilt, and the Convention agreed that the King had put himself outside all legal protections, paving the way for his execution.
