* In Fanfic/IAmNotGoingThroughPubertyAgain, Itachi's punishment for committing the Uchiha massacre is being stripped of his ANBU Captain rank and being demoted to Chunin. Justified, since the Hokage decided to make the attempted Uchiha coup public, and thus Itachi's actions were seen under a completely new light. The demotion came because, since he killed his almost entire family, he had to face SOME form of punishment.

* Done deliberately in ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome''. Admiral Kirk had stolen the USS ''Enterprise'' for an unauthorized mission, and ended up using it to save Earth from total destruction. The Federation Council notes that he has to be punished for his actions, so they winkingly "demote" him to Captain and give him command of a new ship, knowing full well that's the best way to reward him.
** Becomes a {{subvert|edTrope}} in ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'', when this demotion in response to Kirk working outside the bounds of authority becomes key character evidence in a trial to convict him of assassination.

* In past times, when homosexuality was actually a criminal act, it carried a jail sentence - locking up the perpretrator with a lot of sex starved people of their own gender!

* In ''Webcomic/{{Spacetrawler}}'', Yuri is captured by aliens and tortured for pretending to be a representative at their government function. However, they've never encountered human physiology before, so they have to ask Yuri how to torture her. She exploits this by [[BriarPatching begging them not to feed her sweets, make her watch rom-coms, or massage her feet with almond oil]]. [[spoiler: The last one gets nastily subverted by Shuar, who realizes she's being had and decides to ''cut off Yuri's legs'' before the "massage".]]

* This is often [[InvokedTrope invoked]] in sports events, like [[TheBeautifulGame football]]. It occurs multiple times that a player is one yellow card away for getting a suspension for the next match, but that following match is actually meaningless. For example in the case of a round robin stage where the team already qualified for the next round, but they still have one match to play in the group. The player deliberately commits a foul that results in a yellow card. The player is then suspended for the next, meaningless, match. After he sits out his suspension he can begin again with a clean slate. However, the governing bodies regularly see through these [[CheatersNeverProsper acts]] and suspend the player and/or coaches for additional matches due to unsportsmanlike conduct.

** Depending on the decade, this trope was subverted - if Russia felt like it, then the order of the day was to send political criminals to the Gulags in Siberia, which were exactly like the Nazi death camps from before the GDR [[{{Hypocrite}} which they so desperately condemned]].

* Being fired from a job you hate may be this. Some people even purposely mess up or slack off at work, just so that they'll be fired.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'' episode "Johnny of the Jungle", when Hugh refuses to let Johnny go on a field trip to the zoo at night, Johnny graffitis one of the walls of the house so Hugh would get angry and send him to his room for the rest of the night, allowing Johnny to sneak out and go to the zoo without Hugh checking on him. Johnny then had to get home before the sun would come up and Hugh would see that he's [[SleepingDummy replaced himself in bed with an inflatable decoy]].
