** The series as a whole thrives on it by [[RuleOfFunny wildly exaggerating]] how harmful censorship can be [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad if taken to extremes.]] In Japan's now dystopian society, the government has declared all manner of indecency to be illegal and punishable by harsh fines and imprisonment - including [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking referring to one's own anatomy]], even in clinical terms.

** Ayame openly defies the authorities by disguising herself with a bedsheet and a pair of her own panties as a mask. She knows that the police can't touch her without risk of exposing her body in public. Plus, she's only 17 so they'd also be implicating themselves with a minor. So any time they corner her, [[LoopholeAbuse they have no choice but to let her go!]]

* in ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha'', two homunculi guards ask Rider of Black if he's seen one of their number that had escaped. Rider denies this while holding said homunculus sack-of-potatoes style over his shoulder in plain view. After a {{Beat}}, they simply move on.

** A good example of this is [[spoiler:the "we are all Zero" gambit]] which is so outrageous it simply cannot fail, even though the logistics behind it make no sense.

** A good example of this is [[spoiler:the "we are all Zero" gambit]] which gambit]], where Lelouch gets ''a million Japanese people'' (and at least one dog) to ''all'' dress up as Zero. As Zero is being sent into exile as a condition of cooperating with the Britannians to refound the Special Administrative Zone, every Japanese person at the gathering ''also'' has to leave, because they're ''also'' Zero. Which is so outrageous it simply cannot fail, even though the logistics behind it make no sense.

* In the first season/second volume of ''Manga/{{Moyashimon}}'', Sawaki, Misato and Kawahama get out of what would have been a very awkward WhatDidIDoLastNight situation by arranging the apartment so things look even worse than they actually are. When a hungover [[spoiler:Hasegawa]] finally wakes up to the ensuing scene, she leaves wordlessly and very very quickly.

* Many of Manga/CatsEye's heists work because they're too crazy for the police. Such as the time they fabricated a child trapped in a bank vault that was having void made in it just to be able to demolish it ''in full view of the police''.
** The cops once tried it too: having to guard a painting targeted by Cat's Eye for a few days and knowing they could break into their vault, they put it in a holding cell with ''five violent murderers''. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Cat's Eye still managed to steal it]].

* ''Manga/CityHunter'': Many, many times, from pretty much everyone, but Reika (Saeko's sister) topped everyone with her way to search and identify a Corrupt Cop who was selling informations and confiscated drugs to Yakuza groups and had murdered and dishonored another cop: blackmail said Yakuza groups and take so much of their money they'd have to beg the Corrupt Cop to deal with her, and using the Yakuza money to pay the pension the family of the late cop would get had he not been dishonored.
