Discussed in Freeman's Mind. Freeman, worried about being arrested for killing HECU marines, decides that the more people he kills, the harder it will be to pin on him.
Freeman: "No military training, never fired a gun, acquitted for petty theft, not a member of any extremist organizations, has a PHD in theoretical physics. Yeah, that sounds like our man."
The Black Guy Who Tips podcast: Their motto is "It's okay if it's funny." The show's signature segment is "Guess The Race", where host Rod reads an article regarding a crime, and challenges the show's chat room and the episodes special guest (if applicable) to guess which race (usually) the perpetrator is. Creative racism is encouraged: Simply calling the subject "nigger" or "cracker" is frowned on. But obscure and archaic slurs (like "Moon Cricket" for black people) are encouraged, as well as "as black.../white as..." answers.
In Worm Skitter's success as a villain comes largely from her recklessness and ability to go on the offensive and catch enemies by surprise, enabling her and her team to succeed despite their weaker powers. One notable occasion sees her team gatecrash a soiree at the hero headquarters and disable them with their own containment foam sprays before they can react.
Skitter/Taylor develops such a reputation for this that when she's finally caught, surrounded by elite heroes with no costume, weapons and with her powers suppressed, she realises they are still acting wary. What does she do next? She smiles. Then she calls out the heroes for their dubious actions, calls sympathetic citizens from the watching crowd to surround her and marches out of the building.
The Nostalgia Critic tries to pull this off in his review of Ghost Dad. After pretending to be a ghost that stays in the material plane if his assistants to role play as a Newsboy and Dorthy for him, they call the Critic out when they realize that he isn't dead. Nostalgia Critic then shames them for believing him and following through on his inane orders, openly stating that he hopes their embarrassment and confusion will buy him enough time to make his escape.
Subverted when the audacity doesn't serve as a refuge at all.
