** Irene was revealed to have a child by rape in late 2015, later revealed to be a son. The fact that this had never come up in her 20+ years on the show despite Irene having lived with Tasha and been around for each of the above stories was rather weakly {{Hand Wave}}d by an implication of repressed memories, which were only now being triggered by Olivia opening up about being sexually abused by a friend of her uncle. (However, the fact she still had the blanket she made for the baby, which she treated like a prized possession even though it had never been seen before and she'd lost all her possessions in a house fire in the 90s, seems to contradict the repressed memories theory.)

** Andy and Josh Barrett, perhaps even more than Brax. Andy starts off attempting to murder two main characters for trivial reasons, and ends up ''actually'' killing two main characters, albeit by accident. In between, he murders a rival criminal in cold blood and Josh accidentally kills someone else while covering for him. They both confess in the end, but instead of taking their punishment they go on the run together.

* [[NeverSayDie Never Say Rape]]: ''Home and Away'' has done a number of well-remembered rape storylines over the years (Carly, Chloe and Dani in particular) but the word "rape" was never used onscreen, replaced by "assault", "attack", and in one infamous case, "forced her to have a baby with him." (Granted, the pregnancy was the whole point of the rape, but still). This was finally averted after Joey was raped in 2009, with further aversions in the storylines involving Charlie later that year, and Bianca in 2011. However, the word was used early in 2007, in the context of rohypnol being a date rape drug.

It seems to be well and truly back in force now: Bianca was "attacked" or "sexually assaulted" more often than not and euphemisms are in full force for Rosie in 2013, Irene and Olivia in 2015 and Billie in 2016.

''Home and Away'' is notable in that, unlike ''Neighbours'', the show has had one cast member (Ray Meagher) stay on board from the very first episode. Another notable totable is that unlike most soapies, this one is aimed squarely at teens, as well as older fans who grew up with Sally (Kate Ritchie, the longest-serving ''female'' cast member, who was also in the first episode, but left in 2008).

** There's also Kyle Bennett/Braxton. Introduced lurking around the Bay spying on the Braxton brothers, Kyle kidnapped Casey, took him out into the bush and attempted to starve/dehydrate him to death. His reason? Casey had killed their mutual father. Dragged back to the Bay to testify in Casey's favour, Kyle later turned his life around and became one of the good guys. In his favour, he has worked very hard to be better than he was then.
** To a huge extent, Darryl "Brax" Braxton. His crimes included running a drug operation; having Liam Murphy beaten up for testifying against his brother; attempting to murder both Pirovic brothers (someone beat him to it both times); stealing the evidence in armed robbery and framing a mostly innocent bystander; attacking Johnny Barrett, stealing the proceeds of a robbery and leaving him for dead; and attacking Dean Sanderson, stealing the proceeds of a robbery and leaving him for dead. He receives no legal punishment for any of it, and on the two occasions he does go to jail he's innocent and gets out pretty quickly (the second time by ''faking his death and escaping'', albeit to protect his family). And ''then'', all of this gets awkwardly wrapped up with Dean's actual killer confessing, exonerating Brax and allowing him to have his happy ending with Ricki and their son Casey.

*** When the son in question, Mick Jennings, was introduced in 2016, the first thing he did was rape Billie Ashford, which ended up getting her pregnant with his child. After he was arrested for kidnapping Irene, it was revealed that this wasn't his first sexual assault.

** Kane Phillips went unpunished for his role in kidnapping Shauna and later raping Dani, instead being given a FreudianExcuse in the form of his father and brother's abuse, while being supposedly [[LoveRedeems redeemed]] by his relationship with Dani's sister Kirsty. Similar to Brax, the one time he was convicted of a crime was when he was framed by the aforementioned father and brother, and he and Kirsty skipped town before sentencing. He would later be apprehended in 2008 and tried for the robberies he was forced to commit while on the run, accepting a plea deal to protect Kirsty. However, in a baffling incidence of WrongfulAccusationInsurance, he later appealed the sentence and was released, despite having no apparent way of exonerating himself for the original robbery, to say nothing of the ones he ''had'' committed.
