* There was a series of PSA comic strips displayed in the Warsaw subway, warning about the potentially life-ruining consequences of stupid bravado. One of the ads depicted a stereotypical movie {{ninja}} who runs across a rooftop, leaps down into a hay cart... and the last panel shows him in a wheelchair.

This is related to {{Deconstruction}} and DeconstructiveParody, but this is temporary, and is mainly used for comedy. The ChunkySalsaRule runs on it. Characters who use this to their advantage invariably are GenreSavvy, or in the case of villains, DangerouslyGenreSavvy. A WrongGenreSavvy character has chances to be hit hard by an Ensuing Reality. Violates NoOntologicalInertia when things do not automatically change because one thing comes to an end. See also TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs.

** What happens when you spend years exposing the hypocrisy and corruption of the justice system? According to ''Dual Destinies'', the result is that people don't trust law enforcement and prosecutors, which, because no one seems to care about guilt or innocence anymore, results in ''blatant and flagrant'' abuse of the law by both prosecutors and defense attorneys. NiceJobBreakingItHero.
*** Speaking of the above, it goes on for about seven years. When the Chief Prosecutor decides to have a cleanup, he ends up having to fire around half of the prosecutors in the office.
