* This tends to happen with Rito ''oh so much'' in ''Manga/ToLoveRu'', especially with Yami. She is quick to beat the crap out of him and throw death threats whenever it [[AccidentalPervert looks like he does something perverted]], but when real perverts like Risa grope her purposely, she just meekly tells them to stop [[spoiler:(it's been suggested, and evidenced, that Yami is a ClosetPervert who ''enjoys'' female affection).]]

*** Homer and Marge usually do this to Bart for example in [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS15E6TodayIAmAClown Today I Am A Clown]] gets Homer to use his newfound fame to talk about the important issues. This causes his fan base to turn against him and his star plummets. Yet he is never shown to be angry at Lisa but strangles Bart when he calls him out for listening to her even though Lisa shows no guilt about what she did. This is also inverted as Homer and Marge would often go to great lengths to help Lisa while ignoring Bart. In [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS9E17LisaTheSimpsons Lisa the Simpson]] Homer immediately stopped caring about the Simpson Gene when itís discovered that it only affects Bart. Marge will also chastise Lisa for trying to sabotage Maggie but when Lisa accidentally cripples Bart Marge tells him that he should feel sorry for her.

* In the ''WaysideSchool'' books, Todd always gets in trouble three times over the course of the day and is always sent home early on the kindergarten bus. On multiple occasions, this is due to a selective enforcement plot when the rest of the class gets away with things, but he gets caught for a minor infraction. For example, the whole classroom will be talking loudly with the teacher not paying attention, but the second Todd opens his mouth, [[SevenMinuteLull the entire class is silent]] and he's caught talking in class. Similarly, one scene has Joy bugging him over what page he's on in the math book, and mocking him for being so far behind her. Her mocking gets very, very loud. But when he finally loses his cool, he's the one who gets in trouble. Immediately after he saved the lives of everyone in the class.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'': In the episode "The Prank," Nicole calls out Gumball and Darwin for pranking Richard, while ignoring the fact that Richard pranked ''them'' first. When Gumball [[LampshadeHanging calls her out on it]], Nicole justifies herself by saying, "You know it's [[IdiotHoudini too late for your father]]."

* In sharp contrast to GTA tradition, the police in SaintsRow2 will help you in firefights with rival gangs if they see the other gang firing first and if you don't hit any police or civilians.

** This improves every game. By Skyrim, Guards may forgive very small bounties on grounds of "not worth my time" and if you pick up an owned item (easy to do by accident) the owner may just verbally reprimand you and take it back with no further trouble.

** A series wide case, Sideshow Bob has been foiled multiple times by the Simpsons family, but has outright admitted he is apathetic to all of them except Bart, who he is obsessed with killing in revenge for exposing his first instance of villainy. This is especially apparent with Lisa, who as time has passed has foiled Bob ''more'' times than Bart.

This is especially apparent with Lisa, who as time has passed has foiled Bob ''more'' times than Bart, though regardless he has outright lampshaded his disinterest in getting back at her or anyone but Bart.
** In the Tracey Ullman shorts and early series episodes, Lisa was just as bratty and dysfunctional as Bart, though Homer tended to only target Bart for discipline. This was excused by the creative team, they were apparently a lot more uneasy when offered gags with Homer strangling Lisa compared to
Bart.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', most of Tamriel is above the law. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' or ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', if they slept on the street, the guards would simply get stuck trying to walk over them. You decide to do the same and the guards are right there yelling "STOP RIGHT THERE CRIMINAL SCUM!"
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' example: Assaulting a child in public, no problem. Stealing an apple? Arrest and possibly execution on the spot, not to mention several bystanders will try to exact vigilante justice ''while the guard is talking to you''.
