* In {{WebVideo/Idiotsitter}}, this is Invoked and Averted in "Fight Day", Gene waits till the end of Fight Day (7 PM), hiding to avoid being hit while telling the others to go after each other (she even tries to time the exact 'ding' of the clock, but fails several times). Its averted because Billie punches her in the face anyway.
* In {{CrazyCommentaries}}'s LP of ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'', the penguins are this. They made the duo search for about 10 minutes to find the penguin that was right at the start of the level, launched the duo off a cliff for trying to throw them off, yelled at them for taking a shortcut, and pushing them off the edge of a racetrack at one particular turn where it is already really hard to get past it in the first place.
* ''{{Survival of the Fittest}}''. The BigBad Danya, who, so far, has managed to avoid any serious repercussions for his crimes (although he was injured twice, and as of v3 seems rather proud of the scars) is definitely one of these. Arguably certain villains also avoid getting their just desserts, experiencing relatively peaceful deaths as opposed to the violent slaughter they visited on their victims. Version three ended up subverting this; [[spoiler:JR Rizzolo]] won the game, but when he got home he found his family had abandoned him. During the events of the fourth season, after he'd managed to become a celebrity, he is murdered in his home by [[spoiler:Maxie Dasai]].
** As of [[spoiler:the ninth announcement of v4]], Danya is no longer a subversion, thanks to [[spoiler:[[TheDogBitesBack Dorian Pello]].]]
* In the WhateleyUniverse, one of the most evil villains we have met so far is Dr. Emil Hammond, a normal who has experimented on and tortured mutants for decades. He was captured, but in a huge 'OJ Trial', his super-expensive legal team (hired by the mutant-hating Goodkind family) not only gets him off but makes it look as if some evil mutant supervillain has been framing the poor man. He gets hired by the Goodkinds as a researcher, and when 14-year-old Trevor Goodkind manifests as a mutant, Hammond tortures the kid for days. In another story, we see that Hammond has a lab devoted to agonizing experiments on teenaged mutants. Punishment so far? None at all. He has a bigger lab. The overall plot has advanced about one semester out of what seem to be a planned 4 years; it may be a bit early to claim Houdini-hood for villains who simply haven't gotten their comeuppance just ''yet''.
* The most {{egregious}} example by far is [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/195918 Dad]], who was able to avoid having to face the consequences for his inexplicable acts of random violence...[[AutobotsRockOut by rocking out really hard]]. [[spoiler: Also, his head caught on fire again. Seriously, what's up with that?]]
* This is Michael-lan's current intended goal in ''TheSalvationWar'', but as a whole the demons (particularly Memnon) have in effect been let off the hook for their murder, rape, and torture of [[spoiler:"undead" Second Life]] humans... by the modern humans, anyway. [[spoiler:The undead, on the other hand...]]
** Ultimately, [[spoiler:Michael's plan succeeds beautifully, but he immediately discovers that he was {{Out Gambitted}} by Ehlmas, and is now doomed to be a meaningless puppet ruler for all eternity.]]
* The KGB TortureTechnician Konstantinov in ''[[http://www.marquesate.org/special-forces.html Special Forces]]''.
* EquestriaChronicles has the notable example of Daedalus. And he knows it. Run.
* [[LlamasWithHats Carl the Llama]] will probably never be brought to justice despite his horrific crimes.
* {{Discussed}} in WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick's review of ''{{Jem}}:'' one of the things she actually finds funny about the show is that the Misfits are always doing wildly illegal things without anyone seeming to care.
* Any FP game where you have to do an objective while avoiding a supernatural force that wants you dead. Said forces can kill you gruesomely & not have any regrets whatsoever. One such example is {{VideoGame/Slender}}.
* In the Elfslayer Chronicles, a game of ''DungeonsAndDragons'' played online, a PC gets fed up with the DM's plotline of preventing a war and [[OffTheRails kills the figure necessary to prevent said war]]. He then kills this person's lover, whom he framed for the deed, implicates another party member in the killing, and gets away scot-free. Nobody really cared because the [[OurElvesAreBetter elves]] were all humongous [[MarySue Victim Sues]], the plotline was blatant DM wish fulfillment, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking it was a yaoi campaign]], he had ''completely airtight'' in-character reasons for doing so (Word to the Wise: If you have clever humans in the party, NEVER try to play up that HumansAreBastards), the PC in question had metagamed horribly to implicate him in the crime despite having no reasons for doing so in character, and because ''[[XanatosGambit at no point in the campaign could he, within the rules, be connected in any way to the crime]]''. No matter who's doing it, that's [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome]]. As one comment said: "It's like [[Manga/DeathNote Death Note]], but with elves."
* In ''Series/TheConfession'' the Confessor doesn't pay for his crimes and the only person who knows about it can't tell anyone.
* Ultimately in the final chapter of {{WebOriginal/Worm}}, [[spoiler: the protagonist, Taylor is one.]]
