* ''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: ** The Hero Faction escapes in Volume 9 after Issei gets a power-up and the original Sun Wukong shows up. However, [[Issei still takes one of Cao Cao's eyes with a parting shot.]] ** The remnants of the Hero Faction escape again after their defeat in Volume 12, [[spoiler: but their boss still banishes them to the Underworld and confiscates their Sacred Gears for their failure.]] ** The members of the Qlippoth Faction tend to play this straight. [[spoiler: By Volume 19, the heroes have learned to expect this and set up countermeasures in advance to stop them from doing this.]]

* Perhaps the most frequent use of this trope was in the cartoon segments of the ''SuperMarioBrosSuperShow''. After Bowser's latest plot is foiled, he would often have an exit (usually a "warp zone potion") that would allow him to duck out just before the heroes can fully defeat him. Except for one episode, this was done every time without fail.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', Rude's defeat animation consists of him looking at his watch and walking away, with the heroes making no effort to pursue. But then again, said animation is too badass to interrupt.

* In ''ReturnToCastleWolfenstein'' and its sequel, ''VideoGame/{{Wolfenstein}}'', the Nazi MadScientist Wilhelm "Deathshead" Strasse ''always'' gets away. So far it's happened four times: first with an U-Boat from Kugelstadt, then with a ''rocketplane'' from occupied Norway, then from the top of his personal castle after a GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere destroyed his extradimensional battery, and lastly from a parallel dimension, through an ancient portal that led to an ''exploding Zepellin''. The producers don't seem to want to kill him off since, as far as ThoseWackyNazis go, he's actually a rather competent villain. He even gets promoted to General between the two games. However, in ''The New Order'', [[spoiler:this trope is averted and Deathshead is finally KilledOffForReal at the end of the game.]]

* In the MarvelUniverse, The RedSkull justifies this trope by preparing his escape routes with care with obstacles that justifiably discourage the heroes from pursuing him. ** For instance, his first SilverAge appearance has him escaping through a hidden wall panel door. Bucky is all for smashing through it to begin the chase, but CaptainAmerica realizes that panel is a disguised steel door and by the time they get it open to the escape tunnel, the Skull would be long gone. As Cap says in the story "Whoever this Red Skull is, he's no amateur!"

* Pixy Misa in the ''PrettySammy'' series always leaves just before her MonsterOfTheWeek gets vaporized. One particularly weird exit was when she left on a huge cruise ship that randomly appeared in Pretty Space.
