* ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' usually averts this as the villains are usually dealt with by the end of the volume. Only the major arc villains have so far played this straight, but not always cleanly:

* Present in most ''SonicTheHedgehog'' titles, especially when Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik is the main (and only) boss. Every time you defeat him, he'd come back again in a bigger and sometimes-more-dangerous mecha to menace Sonic again and again.
** As are Captain Whisker and his crew, the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot robot pirates]] (from ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}} Adventure''. As the cut scenes are just character art and text on a background, they didn't have to explain ''how'' this was possible, and so the phrase "he got away again!" and variants thereof were used many, many times. This is also repeatedly [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]]:
--> Sonic: ''Argh! He ran off again!''
--> Blaze: ''Those guys just will not sit still!''

** "Crush" was possibly the most {{egregious}}; Spike declared his love for Buffy, was rebuffed, attempted to have Drusilla kill her, failed, and Buffy's response is to ''close the front door in his face''. Not, say, kill somebody who'd just proved himself willing and able to kill people again. "[[JumpingTheShark The shark,]] [[TelevisionWithoutPity she is jumped.]]", some might say.

** "Crush" was is possibly the most {{egregious}}; Drusilla returns to Sunnydale and Spike declared attempts to stake her to prove his love for Buffy, was rebuffed, attempted to have Buffy. Buffy is disgusted, Spike gets distracted by Harmony, and Drusilla kill her, failed, and Buffy's response is to ''close the front door in his face''. Not, say, kill somebody who'd just proved himself willing and able tries to kill Buffy. She fails, naturally, with Spike even helping Buffy out. Drusilla then mourns the fact that Spike is lost to the evil side, and... wanders offscreen while both Spike and Buffy just stand there. Sure, Spike might not have wanted to kill his ex-girlfriend now that he had nothing to gain from it, but Buffy sure as hell had reason to kill Drusilla -- especially since Drusilla had recently murdered several people again. "[[JumpingTheShark The shark,]] [[TelevisionWithoutPity in an incident known to the Scoobies! Instead, Drusilla just leaves so she is jumped.]]", some might say.can be on ''Series/{{Angel}}'' again.

*** This scene isn't really an example because it's Skeletor's Good Mirror Twin created by a mirror that made opposite duplicates of whoever looked into them, getting back inside the Mirror that created him and destroying it to make sure it's not used again. It's still an awesome exit, though.

* Archer vs Caster in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight: Unlimited Blade Works''.
* ''{{Pokemon}}'' villains, upon defeat, will always get away from the hero, who at the end of the game might even have a fire breathing dragon. We don't know how they do it, because the game conveniently turns the lights out.

** Subverted at the climax of ''CaptainAmerica: Reborn''. Here, the Red Skull's consciousness is forced back into his robot body after being forced out of Rogers' by Rogers himself. Unplugging himself, the Red Skull tries to make a break for it hoping the big fight around would cover his tracks. Sharon Carter stops that in a brilliantly counter-intuitive way by using Dr. Hank Pym's size changing technology to make him a giant before he got away. Yes, that means that there now is a giant Red Skull trying to stomp the superheroes, but it also means that there is no way he can sneak away now and fighting with ColossusClimb tactics is old hat for Captain America and his friends, not to mention Sharon gets the Vision to access the Skull's ship's weapons systems to hit a now ''really big'' target.
