A supertrope to ArsonMurderAndAdmiration, a more comedic take on the concept. Contrast UnintentionallyNotoriousCrime, where a villain gets ''too much'' cred. Do not confuse with VillainRespect, which is directed at heroes.

* ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'': While Frieza is mostly after Goku just for revenge, he does take a moment to point out that he can't be taken seriously if he's afraid to fight some filthy monkey on a backwater planet.

* ''''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'': Sportsmaster is obsessed with this in to the point where he's willing to betray his former bosses and ally with his hated daughter just to restore it [[spoiler: because Aqualad killed his heroine daughter Artemis without him being involved. When it turns out she's alive and it was all a trick to help Aqualad in his deep cover mission, Sportsmaster accepts the cred loss to help keep their cover, because he'd rather see his former bosses punished for allowing it to happen in the first place.]]

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', a pirate's bounty is often used as a rough estimate of how dangerous they are, and bounties are often discussed as though they were PowerLevels[[note]]The bounty does not scale the actual power of a person. It indicates how the World Government is thinking about the criminal, how many crimes they know from the criminal and how many crimes can be leaked to the public[[/note]. Pirates with high bounties will use them for bragging rights and to recruit crew members who want to work for the toughest pirate on the seas.
