* This trope is often taken as the reason for Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'s ambiguous reluctance to kill Claudius -- in reality (and contrary to the Elizabethan revenge dramas that were popular at the time), most people simply wouldn't be able to live up to the command to put a knife in another person's back.

* This trope is often taken as the reason for Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'s ambiguous reluctance to kill Claudius -- in reality (and contrary to the Elizabethan revenge dramas that were popular at the time), most people simply wouldn't be able to live up to the command to put a knife in another person's back. Doubly so since Claudius is family by blood and the reigning monarch, which means that killing him would render Hamlet NotSoDifferent from him.
** Hamlet also doesn't just take his father's ghost at his word - he notes from his knowledge of legends and theatre that something as fantastical as a ghost could easily be a trick of the Devil to tempt him. As such, he doesn't act on his revenge until he has more convincing evidence. Of course, that doesn't mean he isn't seriously affected by the whole affair...

*** If ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}'' Gang talked like real children. It just has Charlie Brown and Lucy spouting off random things you would expect a four-year-old to say, such as "I got a hole in my knee" or "You know what I would like to see? A green sky."

** One feature spoofing comic strips features what would happen if the characters behaved more realistically:

*** Another one about ''ComicStrip/BringingUpFather'' which also plays on the abuse Jiggs experiences from Maggs, but this time, he simply files for divorce after it happens.
*** One about if ''ComicStrip/DennisTheMenaceUS'' had parents with normal patience just has Dennis getting spanked (this was before his MenaceDecay).

Since this trope is entirely about outcomes happening under the rules of RealLife, i.e. an OmnipresentTrope, [[Administrivia/NoRealLifeExamplesPlease real life examples would be redundant.]]

* The KarmaHoudini trope is basically this. In RealLife, not everybody will be punished for their wrongful deeds, and will get away with things.

This is related to {{Deconstruction}} and DeconstructiveParody, and is mainly used for comedy. Still, do note that [[TropesAreTools this is not strictly a "humor" trope]]: the defiance of a fantastic element can be a pretty powerful tool for deconstructive drama and sometimes even horror. The ChunkySalsaRule runs on it. Characters who use this to their advantage almost invariably are GenreSavvy. A WrongGenreSavvy character has chances to be hit hard by an Ensuing Reality. The NoNonsenseNemesis runs entirely on this trope played for drama and sometimes horror. Violates NoOntologicalInertia when things do not automatically change because one thing comes to an end. See also JustForFun/TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs.
