* Red and Ted from ''[[Pinball/RedAndTedsRoadShow Red & Ted's Road Show]]'', who travel the country wreaking havoc but never suffer any consequences for their actions, as they are {{Heroic Comedic Sociopath}}s.

* It is possible to invoke this in ''[[Pinball/WHODunnit WHO dunnit]]'' if the player fails to catch the killer, either by failing the Taxi Chase or not completing [[RooftopConfrontation The Roof chase.]]
* Inverted in Pinball/HighSpeed and it's sequel Pinball/TheGetawayHighSpeed2: You play the villain (albeit a minor one whose offense is ''speeding'') who the cops are after.
