As awesome as many of the protagonist's victories were, it was even more awesome when one of the shorts' recurring Butt Monkeys finally got a victory over them (granted they were usually villains, but their sheer harmlessness and likable qualities made you desire at least one moment of triumph over their smug foes). Elmer Fudd (eg. Rabbit Rampage, Hare Brush) and Daffy Duck, even post-Flanderization (eg. Ducking The Devil, Mucho Locos) perhaps scored the most frequent and most satisfying victories.
Elmer: "Typhoons, hurricanes, earthquakes....SMOOOOOGGGGGGGG!!!!!''"
- Another for Elmer comes in "Hare Brush", in the very surreal case of switching their roles. And, since Bugs believes he's Elmer J. Fudd, he gets arrested for owing a lot of money.
Elmer: I may be a screwy scwewy wabbit, but I'm not going to Alcatwaz!
- Out of all the characters Bugs manages to outwit, Cecil Turtle is the only one who could basically outwit HIM... on three consecutive episodes no less! First he calls all his relatives to appear at different points of the race, then he convinces Bugs to make himself a 'super-fast shell' where a whole rabbit gang, convinced he's the turtle, goes out of their way to beat him up... and when Bugs finally manages to win a race, he gets arrested for going over the speed limit. Daffy, Elmer and Sam got nothing on this turtle.
- The tale continues on The Looney Tunes Show, but this time...well, just see the CMOA page of that show...
- A slightly Pyrrhic Victory, but admirable one no less in "Mouse Mazurka". Sylvester's prey dupes him into believing he's swallowed Nitroglycerin and spends the remainder of the episode tormenting him with no worry of retaliation, until he eventually causes himself to explode (having unknowingly swallowed the real deal). The narrator mocks Sylvester as he will never get the mouse now. "That's what you think!" Sylvester then swallows a similar bottle and deliberately detonates himself, before appearing before the angel mouse in cloud heaven and the cartoon closing on the continued chase. Sylvester's zeal excelled the point of killing himself just to get revenge on the little rodent.
