If fictional characters knew that being good [[GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex gets you good sex]], there might not be any villains. One common way this shows up, especially in {{Comedy}}, is with Sexual Karma. Though not just in the sense of "you give good sex, you get good sex back" (which can certainly come into play, but is not the end of it). What happens is that good characters will, through wacky and unpredictable happenstance, usually end up falling into a veritable [[SexyManInstantHarem harem of highly desirable and willing members of their preferred gender]], while the {{Jerkass}} will be dumped into a veritable harem of their ''least'' favored members of their ([[IncompatibleOrientation un]])preferred gender. ''[[RomanticizedAbuse While in chains.]]'' Where no one can hear them scream. Incidentally, said harem of undesirable people is composed of people who will sexually assault them.

Implementation varies, they don't always fall through a skylight onto a pile of cushions with various scantily clad concubines (though that ''is'' the classic). Even sex need not be involved, it might just be a single guy ending up alone with a [[BusFullOfInnocents bus full of volleyball players they helped save]] and who are grateful enough to flirt with and/or dote on him. Or the good character might mope that, after spending all the movie helping the lead solve his or her love problems they're still single... to the unbearably attractive bar-person [[HookedUpAfterwards who happens]] to be single! Alternately the wingman and winggirl of the two leads [[CleaningUpRomanticLooseEnds may become]] a happy BetaCouple. Depending on the rating, they may only be implied to start dating, get it on, or ''actually'' get it on screen. This may occasionally be shown as one of rewards given to TheWoobie at the end, if s/he manages to survive everything the universe throws at them.

In contrast, most {{Jerk Ass}}es (and a fair number of heroic {{Butt Monkey}}s) will somehow find themselves socially or physically trapped alone with one [[HumiliationConga (or more!)]] overly amorous people of a group that isn't just outside their target demographic, but may well [[AbhorrentAdmirer scare or repulse them]]. Of course, to these people, "no means yes" and their struggles just set them in the mood. For extra points, he or she will have previously insulted or put down the same person or people that he or she is now trapped with [[HoistByHisOwnPetard due to their own actions]]. If the jerkass was [[KickTheDog kicking dogs]], [[KarmicRape rape is implied to happen]].

It's not always a person, though; animals, "monsters", or aliens can also be substituted in [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe either]] [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong case.]] Even a NiceGuy may have to endure a dry-humping pet of their LoveInterest's as part of the romance. Extra points if it's a gorilla, which is a favorite.

Depending on how it's used, this trope may carry UnfortunateImplications. Please don't ask us to elaborate, [[ThereAreNoTherapists therapy isn't cheap.]]

Subtrope of LaserGuidedKarma and supertrope to KarmicRape. See also RedemptionEqualsSex. May be a precursor to BabiesEverAfter. Since this is often an EndingTrope, beware of unmarked spoilers.



[[folder: Anime & Manga ]]

* In ''Anime/JuraTripper'', instead of being requited by any of his love interests, {{Jerkass}} God only receives affection from pet dinosaur Miyu.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** Sanji ends up on an island full of cross-dressers after [[spoiler:Bartholomew Kuma rockets the Straw Hat Pirates away from each other]]. He spends a lot of time unknowingly saying that he likes dressing in women's clothing to a cross-dresser he believed was a beautiful woman. HilarityEnsues.
** Also, Absalom's molestation and ogling of Nami/Robin is repaid with the affections of Lola. Who is a zombie. And [[{{gonk}} ugly]]. And a warthog. This is [[AdaptationExpansion more detailed]] in the anime.
** Luffy, for being such a good hearted moron, wins the affections of Boa Hancock, the WorldsMostBeautifulWoman, one of the Shichibukai, and leader of the all-woman kingdom [[LadyLand Amazon Lily]], which means ''her'' subjects love him too. Being [[IdiotHero Luffy]], he doesn't quite 'get' how lucky he is.
* A {{Yakuza}} member in ''Yamatogawa/Witchcraft'' is dropped into a pit full of bored homunculi. We don't see precisely what happens to him, but the homunculi were created for sex, and despite their feminine forms, they have penises rather than vaginas.


[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* In ''ComicBook/{{Ernie}}'', a sleazy boss tries to get Doris to sleep with her, threatening to fire her if she don't go along. She beats him up and quits on her own. However, this was apparently not enough punishment for some people (the next strip is of the artist being chewed out by his wife and banished to the couch because the sleaze "got away with it"), so the boss is later on vacation and tries the hot tub... which is then occupied by several recently-conceiving mothers. Uh, yeah. If this seems a bit convoluted to you, you're not alone.
* Starr in ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'' orders an incompetent minion to set him up with a prostitute. He gets a male one who does not take no for an answer. This is actually quite early in Starr's HumiliationConga.


[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* In Creator/DonBluth's ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}'', Rasputin's bat sidekick abandons him at the climax and is awarded a female bat at the end with no explanation.
* At the end of ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek 2}}'', the handsome but awful Prince Charming is grabbed and forcibly kissed by the ugly step-sister.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'' -- Maudie, the plump castle maid from [=DunBroch=], and the big, hunky unnamed warrior from the Dingwall clan are shown briefly flirting at the end of the movie when they the three clans are finally leaving.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/AceVenturaWhenNatureCalls'' has the protagonist enjoy a night with TheChiefsDaughter, while the unfortunate BigBad finds love in the bush. With the Extra Points. Of course, this comes back to bite Ace in the ass.
--> '''[[StraightMan Fulton]]''': I believe he's saying she's not a virgin.
--> '''Ace''': ...''they can tell that''? ''(Cue entire Wachati tribe chasing Ace through the jungle)''
* The ending of ''Film/DumbAndDumber'' subverts this -- the two characters look like they're about to get a bus full of beautiful women all to themselves as reward for their noble actions, only to have it ruined by their stupidity -- and then hilariously double-subverted (nay, ''triple'' subverted) seconds later.
* ''Film/EuroTrip'' has the {{Jerkass}} sidekick going to a normal-looking brothel and not realizing anything is wrong until the girls leave as soon as he's all chained up. A burly man enters and he struggles with the complex {{Safeword}}... failing to pronounce it, he instead begs for what turns out to be the name of a sinister-looking anal rape toy. This is the only sexual encounter he has in the whole movie until the PairTheSpares happy ending.
* In the film version of ''Film/GeorgeOfTheJungle'', the villain winds up with a (semi-sentient) gorilla... who he'd just exchanged vows with while in a dark cave, thinking it was Ursula.
* Oh, the ending to ''Film/Gremlins2TheNewBatch.'' Gets the extra points and everything, and a particularly mean example because the guy wasn't a villain so much as kind of a {{jerkass}}. At the end he just shrugs and accepts that the amorous female Gremlin is going to have him one way or another. After all the chaos he's been through regarding the regular gremlins, the one female that has a major crush on him is probably the least of his problems.
* ''Film/{{Intermission}}'': Oscar and Sally, [[TwiceShy the two shy ones]], find each other. John (whose messy breakup with his girlfriend because he couldn't show any commitment kicked off the whole plot) gets her back when he admits that he cares about her. Sam gets back together with his wife (who left him when he cheated with a younger woman) -- unfortunately for him, she's discovered [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale she can use threats of physical violence to keep him in line]].
* Shannon Hamilton of ''Film/{{Mallrats}}'' likes to screw girls in an extremely uncomfortable place.And the karma rebound for his {{jerkass}}ery throughout the film is he ends up screwed in a very uncomfortable place for many years. [[PrisonRape Jail.]]
--> [[RunningGag What... like the back of a Volkswagen?]]
* At the end of ''Film/RobinHoodMenInTights'', Robin ends up with Maid Marian, while the Sheriff of Nothingham ends up in the arms of AbhorrentAdmirer Latrine.
* ''Film/SororityBoys:'' Throughout the film, [[{{jerkass}} Adam]] encourages Jimmy, his little brother in the fraternity, to take advantage of inebriated girls. So when "Adina" (Adam dressed in drag) ends up passed out in in Jimmy's room, he [[UnusualEuphemism capitalizes on the opportunity]]. Adam then takes the same humiliating walk of shame that girls had to endure after a night with ''him''.
* In ''Film/{{Tamara}}'', Sean and Patrick frequently {{date rape}}d their female classmates at parties. [[VillainProtagonist Tamara]], using her newfound [[{{Brainwashed}} mind-control powers]], retaliates by forcing them to have sex... with each other.
* ''Film/TradingPlaces'': the protagonist ends up with Creator/JamieLeeCurtis, while the callous, {{Jerkass}} Beeks ends up with a male amorous gorilla in a cage.... wearing a (female) gorilla suit.....
* After wishing for the death of [[spoiler:Creator/JayBaruchel]] in ''Film/ThisIsTheEnd'', [[spoiler:Jonah Hill gets raped and subsequently possessed by a demon.]]
* ''Film/TheSwordAndTheSorcerer'': Whilst on the run from palace guards during one of his many I'll-do-it-although-it's-certain-death escapades, the hero of the movie literally falls (well, smashes through a window into) the evil king's harem, which is filled with scantily-clad concubines reclining on cushions. [[spoiler: Unfortunately he doesn't have time for more than a kiss. But it's a good one.]]
* Played for laughs in ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'': when Eggsy infiltrates the SupervillainLair in hopes of foiling the villain's doomsday plot, he finds a captive StatuesqueStunner Swedish princess who promptly offers him some [[EuropeansAreKinky highly specific]] sexual favours if he saves the world. [[spoiler:She makes good on the deal in the end.]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* Subverted in ''Castle in the Air''. One would ''think'' being banished with two amorous [[AbhorrentAdmirer fat, overly emotional women]] would be the djinn's punishment for kidnapping princesses to fill his harem, but he realizes that he actually finds overweight women very attractive. On their part, the women find his scales and claws to be personal FetishFuel and thus it becomes more PairTheSpares.


[[folder: Web Comics ]]

* The wife of David Hopkins, author of ''Webcomic/{{Jack|DavidHopkins}}'', was stalked for a while by her creepy ex. Apparently, among other problems, the creepy ex had bragged to her about his habit of finding beached dolphins and doing unpleasant things with their blowholes. She and Dave got their revenge on this guy by putting a cameo of a thinly-veiled avatar of him in the comic's IronicHell setting, condemned to be raped by dolphins for eternity.
* In the "Identity" arc of ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Ashley and Tom are interested in Elliot and Susan respectively, and their differing approaches earn them very different rewards. Tom attempts to manipulate Susan into dating him, knowing full well that she would turn him down if he asked her out through conventional means. This leads to him getting exposed as a manipulative asshole in front of a large number of women. Ashley, on the other hand, does her best to warn Susan about Tom's less than honest nature despite the fact that, to the best of her knowledge, this would hurt her chances with Elliot (she believed that Elliot and Susan were likely to get together). This action impressed Elliot enough that he asked her on a date.


[[folder: Web Original ]]

* In ''WebVideo/DeathNoteTheAbridgedSeriesKpts4tv'', right after [[SerialKillerKiller Light says how much fun killing people is]] [[NoYay Ryuk notices how pretty his eyes are.]]
* Solange of the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'' gets the ultimate [[http://www.crystalhall.org/jade4.html in]] CrystalHall.
** The fandom promptly [[BrokenBase exploded]] after the section where it happens was posted, dividing into three groups: the first felt that Solange deserved it and it was hilarious; the second felt that, no matter what Solange had done, she didn't deserve ''that''; the third felt that while it was a terrible thing that no one -- not even Solange -- deserved, she ''did'' sign a contract [[spoiler:that gave a telepath ''complete control of her body'' for a whole weekend, in a dorm that was completely hostile to her]] and if she didn't see the potential consequences inherent in that, then she was being incredibly stupid when she agreed to the terms. Bringing it up can still result in [[InternetBackdraft a more... heated...]] response than you might otherwise expect.


[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* [[ConversationalTroping Discussed]] in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill''. An attractive female exterminator shows up and develops a crush on Dale; his wife Nancy, who'd been cheating on him for years, admits that not only does she have any right to complain, but it'd be pretty karmic if Dale ran off with the other woman. Ultimately, however, Dale only loves Nancy and stays with her.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', an antagonist who repeatedly tries to get Jimmy killed is [[BlackComedyRape raped by a shark]]. On-screen. Twice.
* Kid-friendly example: In the ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'' episode "The Time Bandit", Baloo's punishment for almost getting Rebecca executed with one of his {{Zany Scheme}}s is having to go on a date with a woman who really likes him -- but happens to be as fat as Baloo himself.
