* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'': [[http://www.gocomics.com/garfield/1998/06/28 It's so hot that Garfield decides to kick Jon while the later is watering the flowers]]. Jon retaliates by hitting him with water, which Garfield liked. Realizing what just happened, Jon kicks Garfield hoping to receive the same retaliation. [[AvertedTrope Garfield instead pulls down Jon's shorts and wraps him with his hose]].

** This gets subverted in the second Yogopotamian episode, Timmy has to get Vicky back from Mark because of a BetterTheDevilYouKnow situation and challenges him to a duel. He's expecting it to be more chocolate eating and flower skipping, only to get a very rude awaken that it's a battle to the death - with weapons that are very much as lethal to humans as they are aliens.

* In ''Anime/PokémonGenerations'', Cyrus, the leader of Team Galactic, wakes up in the Distortion World after being stopped by Giratina from messing with Dialga and Palkia. The Distortion World is a dimension void of emotion and a place of nothingness with no one present, but Giratina. Cyrus decides he is content to remain in the Distortion World as he believes it is the perfect world he sought for and informs Team Galactic to not look for him.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', an Avvar chief's son tries to kill the [[PlayerCharacter Herald of Andraste]] for personal glory and unsurprisingly gets [[CurbStompBattle his ass handed to him]]. The chief, who figures he needs to respond to this ''somehow'', [[ItMakesSenseInContext throws a goat at the Inquisition's fortress]] and explains he really wanted his son to fight the Tevinter Imperium. One of the possible judgements the player can lay upon him is to "exile" the chief and his clan (with as many weapons as they can carry) to Tevinter. The chief has no problems with this verdict. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Neither do your companions.]]

* You come across a few black chests in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', each with a being trapped inside, begging to be let out. After you find the key and let it out, it curses you... with a new ability that helps you progress further through the level.

[[spoiler: It's heavily implied this is intentional because they're the four heroes who sealed up the shadow queen, and were destined to curse whoever opened them to be free, but a thousand year has let them [[LoopholeAbuse think flexibly]] on what counts towards towards being a "[[CursedWithAwesome Curse]]".]]

* Several recent parenting books mention that sending kids to their room isn't so much of a punishment as it used to be. When kids had little in their rooms except a desk and a bed, their rooms were boring, but nowadays kids might have a computer with internet, smartphones, game systems, and numerous other diversions. The only way to truly punish a kid now is to completely take away access to any form of modern technology... or send them outside. Granted, this would be more effective in a small village where there really isn't anything interesting.

* In the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode "Natural Law", Tom Paris was forced to take a spaceship driving test for violating local rules, and was banished from this sector of space for leaving before the test was over to help ''Voyager''; considering that he was planning to leave this sector, that was hardly a punishment for Paris.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'': This is what kicks off the plot for the episode "Rita her Rights". Rita Loud is sentenced to do community service, namely picking up trash in the park, after getting too many traffic tickets. But she finds her stay at the park much more relaxing than being at home, and thus keeps committing small crimes to get more community service.
