** Brimmer in "Death Lends a Hand". He is shown to be unethical in how he uses third parties to spy on people, and he has bad temper that is a liability. Brimmer becomes enraged and punches Lenore Kennicutt in the face when Lenore confronts Mr. Brimmer to rebuff the blackmail scheme he had in mind for her. Lenore falls over and dies of head trauma, and Mr. Brimmer has a look of fright on his face, after he finds no vital signs on her body. Brimmer seems relieved when Columbo catches him trying to dispose of evidence, and he proceeds to confess to Mr. Kennicutt.

** Tommy Brown in "Swan Song" initially feels a sense of relief, after drugging his black-mailing passengers on board his personal-aircraft. He tricks them into drinking coffee and barbiturates then parachutes off the plane. Tommy eventually feels that he took things too far, and gains a sense of relief when caught by Columbo. Columbo correctly speculates that Tommy would have eventually turned himself in to confess.

** Dr. Eric Mason in "How to Dial a Murder" makes so many mistakes, that Columbo expresses disappointment in how simple the case was to solve. For one, Dr. Mason was having his heart-rate recorded when he tricked Dr. Hunter to saying "Rosebud" twice, and the heart-rate increased when Dr. Mason heard his trained Dobermans killing Dr. Hunter. Second, Columbo noted that a 911 call was not placed by the person who heard Dr. Hunter dying. Third, Dr. Mason unplugged another phone to force Dr. Hunter to use the "murder phone" and failed to plug it back in.

Dr. Mason falsely believes his attack-dog murder is unbeatable, but his psychology major did not train him in thwarting police investigation.
There was also an obvious motive due to the fact that Dr. Hunter was having an affair with Mrs. Mason and Mrs. Mason died under suspicious circumstances.

** Played with in "Murder By The Book", where the key is that the first murder Ken Franklin commits is intricate, well-thought out and almost flawless, but his second is sloppy and rushed. This gives Columbo the idea that the murderer, the less-talented half a murder-mystery writing team, actually stole the idea for the first murder from one of the ideas his partner Jim Ferris came up for their books, but the second was all his own. [[spoiler:Ironically, the first murder ''was'' his idea, the only one that he ever came up with for them, but it was never used.]]
