* In ''Series/BlackLightning'', Gambi shoots [[BigBad Tobias]]'s right-hand man for his role in distributing the new designer drug Green Light , which causes far too many people to OD.

The titular superhero/vigilante's goal is to invoke this trope against Tobias for killing his father in front of him.

* Played with in the Soviet comedy ''Film/KidnappingCaucasianStyle'', where the BigBad is confronted by the supposed brothers of the girl he kidnapped in order to force her to marry him. In fact, they're the protagonist Shurik and his friend, wearing balaclavas and disguising their voices to sound like stereotypical highlanders of the Caucasus with their own moral code. The goal is to scare the guy half to death, but he gets so scared he ends up falling out of his window... and one of the men shoots him in the butt with rock salt. Apparently, the fall is nonfatal, and he's shown as one of the defendants in court... unable to sit after the judge tells everyone they can do so.

** And another one happens to a SerialKiller couple in the two-parter "Assume Nothing"/"All for our Country", though for once it doesn't have any relation with this time Nick stupidly giving information about the case to an old college friend.

[[spoiler:The vigilante in this case is a court clerk (and an ex-cop), who's tired of seeing guilty people getting OffOnATechnicality]].

* An episode of ''Series/WalkerTexasRanger'' had three cops who did this to criminals they feel didn't get the punishment they deserved. One of the people they kill is a kid who was actually innocent; DNA evidence exonerated him, but the cops never checked.

** An accidental example occurs in another SVU episode; a teenage girl accuses a man of rape, and the detectives let him go due to a lack of evidence. The girl's father then kidnaps him and tries to beat a confession out of him but winds up killing him by accident. The kicker? He was just an innocent bystander [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished trying to return her purse]], the real rapist was the girl's dentist uncle who drugged her and the ending implies that the father will probably get off easy since he attempted CPR.
