The final shot of a story is a character relaxing on a sun lounger with a fruity UmbrellaDrink, looking [[HappyEnding pleased with himself]] on a sun lounger. Most likely wearing a colourful [[HawaiianShirtedTourist Hawaiian shirt]] amid a sea of HulaAndLuaus. Neither of which is to say this is [[HollywoodGeography actually supposed to be Hawaii]] (which would be a ''really stupid'' place for an American to [[RunForTheBorder flee to...]]) -- it's more likely to be somewhere in the [[WelcomeToTheCaribbeanMon Caribbean]] or [[BananaRepublic Central/South America]]. British media has its own variation, usually involving the Costa del Sol, a famed retreat of British gangsters, or even Blackpool, where many Scottish gangsters avoided heat. More modern works will substitute Thailand or the UAE.

* Played with in the ''ComicBook/AstroCity'' story "Show 'Em All": The Junkman, having pulled off the perfect crime, gets his tropical epilogue before the story is more than two-thirds over. Then he realizes that the problem with pulling off a crime so perfect that nobody knows who did it is that ''nobody knows who did it'' (which is a problem because he became a supervillain in the first place to make about about what people like him are capable of), and goes back to have another go.
