** Columbo holds the ball in "Etude In Black" where he leaves his new Basset Hound dog in his car (at night) with the windows up. A girl with her own dog [[WhatTheHellHero chews him out for his ignorance]], but Columbo is at least thankful for the advice for his first dog.

* AdaptationalVillainy: In the original stage version of ''Prescription: Murder'', Dr. Flemming, while still a murderer, was considerably more sympathetic, being genuinely in love with his mistress and offering a confession to Columbo due to guilt over his role in her her [[spoiler:fake suicide]]. In the TV movie, he is a stone-cold sociopath who was simply using his mistress as a means to an end, and implies he would have been more than willing to kill her too if she got in his way if she hadn't [[spoiler:killed herself]], thereby [[spoiler:compelling her to turn him in]].

* GracefulLoser: Usually. Columbo has the good sense to plan ahead for when this doesn't seem likely. In "Etude in Black", after his wife contradicts the murderer's alibi, the killer takes a quick moment to apologize to his wife before confessing to Columbo so he isn't too humiliated by being caught. A rare aversion was in "Lady In Waiting" when the killer attempted to shoot him after being found out... Only for him to casually inform her there was a police car waiting outside and such a thing would do her more harm than good.

Fielding Chase (William Shatner) also doesn’t lose gracefully. At the end a device is planted that intentionally disables his Mercedes-Benz in a seemingly empty stretch of road. After Columbo tells him how he committed the murder, Fielding pretends to open his trunk (or boot) and reach for roadside tools, but is hesitantly pulling out a shotgun. Fielding than asks Columbo to consider that he is acting foolishly because Fielding knows he's not armed. Columbo then agrees, but says he didn't come alone and holds down the car horn to summon the cops hiding further ahead.
