Avatar: The Last Airbender

  • In Bring Me All Your Elderly!, Iroh brings up what could result from meddling between two separate realities: "injuries, death, the end of the universe as we know it, badly written teenage drama... The possibilities are endless."

Axis Powers Hetalia

  • This Axis Powers Hetalia Kink Meme fill shows the nations' meeting expenses; they spent thousands and thousands of dollars on everything from strippers to long-distance phone calls to tweezers, and then one dollar and fifty cents on gum.




  • In the Bleach fanfic The First Guardian, the first chapter has a list of things Ichigo can't do (given to him by his Zanpakuto Spirit):

    "You can't phase through walls, Ichigo."
    "You can't read minds, Ichigo."
    "You can't use the Force to trick people into buying you things, Ichigo. The Force doesn't even exist."
    "You can't stay up all night today, you have exams coming up soon and you have to be on your best."

Calvin and Hobbes

  • Examples from the Calvinverse:
    • Done repeatedly in Can You Imagine That?.
      Calvin: What're we going to do? Why is he chasing us? How will we escape? Where does this path lead? When will our bedtime be?
    • Then there's this:
      Calvin: Yesterday, you made a remark on the feasible membership of Susie Derkins. She is the rival of our club. Plus, she's a girl!
    • Also this:
      Hobbes: Of course, when I say 'big galoot', it means that you're handsome, intelligent, and, uh, both of your legs are the same length.
    • Advertisement:
    • Another example:
      Retro: The thing is that I will be the winner here. I will rule the world. I have the advantage. I have the Cool Car!
      Tracer: He's got a point.
    • From Calvin and Hobbes Get XTREME!:
      Hobbes: We're raving from cold and starvation and lack of comic books.
    • One gag in Calvin and Hobbes III: Double Trouble has the aliens smashing several of Calvin's mom's antiques, causing her to cry out every time. It ends with them destroying a clock worth about 50 bucks (compared to the fine china that was destroyed before). She reacts in exactly the same way.
    • In Retro Chill, Calvin says that second grade involves "mustard gas, whips, swinging pendulums and long division."
    • From Calvin and Hobbes: The Series:
      Lenny: Uh, bad news, boss! It would appear that Dave blew up the navigation console, and Biff knocked off the steering wheel. And Jeff just broke a window!
    • And from another episode:
      Andy: Where do you suppose that (a door) leads to?
      Sherman: I dunno. Dungeon, torture room, bloodthirsty zombie, the mansion's balcony.
    • Another instance:
    • And again:
      Sherman: (translating hieroglyphics) Let me see here, curse... curse... another curse... insurance guarantee... ah, here we go.
    • And in the very first episodenote , Hobbes lists his Overly Long Name as "The Ultimate and Most Powerful Predator on the Planet Earth, with Razor Sharp Teeth, Deadly Claws, and Urge to Kill Stuff, and Also Has Opposable Thumbs, and is Able to Stand Up On Two Legs".
    • Then there's "Thunderstorm", which has this:
      Thunderstorm: Success! Now we have absolute threat! Excellent! The place can actually do some evil-like damage now! Every glitch is finally repaired! The gamma-rays are fully-loaded, the laser-cannons are set, the navicomp is functional, and the cappuccino machine has bendy straws! I'M IN THE GROOVE AGAIN!
    • And the three listed objects that "seemed remotely suspicious" are knives, razors, and English IV textbooks.
    • From "Camping Trip Part 2":
      Hobbes: YOU CAN DO IT!
    • During a flashback in "The Transmitter Conspiracy Part 1", we have Andy introducing himself to Socrates:
      "I enjoy video games, basket ball, and putting up with [my] pet talking hamster."
      It was an interesting introduction.


  • From The Joker's Wild, a Teen Titans crossover with Batman in which the Joker features prominently (mind you, he sent Harley out to get torture implements): "Did you get everything? The drills? The nails? The acid? The matches? The custard?" This doubles as Noodle Implements.
  • In a Naruto/Mahou Sensei Negima! crossover fanfic, Broken Faith by Kur0Kishi has this as well in a side mission unrelated to the main plot.
    "Sorry, calling it a missive is an understatement. He sent a clone that somehow traveled 500 miles from here to our Main Headquarters in under 3 hours over land and water, bypassed all official channels and communication protocols, slipped through our ward scheme like it wasn't there and evaded 130 individuals affiliated with our Association, including our entire Security Force. I found him drinking a bottle of 1978 Montrachet wine while chatting with my wife about the finer points of miso ramen in my own private quarters."
  • In Gensokyo's Heart, the Author's Note for the second Intermission asks us three important questions.
    "How does Yukari know about the Xel'Naga? What could she be planning? Why is she so obsessed with the idea of Chen being her and Ran's daughter?
  • In Mass Effect Human Revolution, Wrex's listed crimes include "Two hundred and sixty-seven counts of driving under the influence, three hundred and seventy-five counts of vandalism and assault, and one count littering." However, that littering charge is due to ripping off another Krogan's testicles and tossing them into a public lake.
  • My(stara's) Little Ponies: Friendship is Adventuring: The list of crimes Marcus (or rather, his alternate identity Eric of Vestland) is charged with in chapter 3:
    "He is wanted for the theft of the Water Elves' Pearl, an affair with a Minrothadi ambassador, wearing an Augrist high priest's hat when unqualified to do so, stealing the harem of a Thyatian Ambassador, mocking the Thyatian Emperor, wearing the Sacred Hat of Valerias inappropriately, misleading youth, mocking the gods, failing to pay for 8 sandwiches, and 3 moving violations. Among other crimes."
  • In National Security, America is mildly miffed at whoever decided he should go into hiding after he ends up with Neal Caffrey on the grounds he could have been stuck with an actual bad guy like a murderer or a rapist or a non-taxpayer.
  • The description for No Gods, Only Guns uses this:
    Ancient artifacts of immense power. Murderous synthetics. Ruthless megacorps. Unscrupulous mercenaries. Genocidal stellar god-machines. Incompetent galactic governments. Claptrap dubstep. The horrors of the galaxy are many....
  • In NoHoper Light is not happy about having to attend the school for vampyres:
    Light: It wasn't 'just' anything! I've barely been here 24 hours, and already I can see what the next four years are going to consist of: Sick minds, mind-numbing conversation, and disgusting, degenerative, disorganised HELL!
  • In That Which Holds The Image the Doctor tells Harry, Ron and Hermione about some of the places the Tardis has gotten him.
    "I materialised this box on the Security Deck of the Admiral Tholtrich. I landed this box on top of a Regulation Zebra prison ship, whilst it was in warp. This box got me a seat next to Brangelina at the Oscars."

  • Monsters In Paradise: While Koishi Komeiji is briefly hospitalized in Hearthome City with her mind-reading powers reawakened, she picks up an analysis-in-progress from the nurse assigned to look after her. Amongst other things: the nurse's questions being answered before they were asked, the difficulties she had dealing with Koishi's external veins... and her pupils and irises being the same colour.
  • I Against I, Me Against You: Rarity, after delivering a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown to CT, tries to explain herself to the others.
    Rarity: He killed Captain Eberle, he killed everyone in the desert, he threatened to kill me, and worse, he called me old!!!
  • Fortresshy: The Nine Fathers: At one point, the following threat is made, via letter:
    Saxon Hale: Disobey me in this, and I will hunt you down, break every bone in your body, feed you to the reanimated corpse of my pet yeti, and kill you until you stay dead. And then you'll be fired.
  • In The Story to End All Stories, when listing potential suspects, Penny Pringle mentions such well-known villains as Lex Luthor and Freddy Krueger along with Clifford Daniels, the sadistic 10-year-old from Clifford.
  • The Metroid/Kamen Rider crossover fic Metroid: Kamen Rider Generations emphasizes this on Mitsuzane Kureshima's backstories. Considering that he is known for being the manipulative, lying, self-absorbed, cowering scumbag. The last thing he can do after killing Kouta and let Mai die but not only crying like a hysterical child, he also begins binge drinking to forget them, and doesn't mind falling off the wagon.
  • Universe Falls: At the start of "Dipper and Lapis", the main characters are enjoying some downtime, and express gratitude that they don't have to deal with things like "crazy golf ball people", "brain-eating zombies", "jerky shape-shifters", "rampaging Gem robots", or "awkward dinner parties".
  • To quote Jamie in Fantasy of Utter Ridiculousness:
    "So, who else are we going to meet today? Living phantoms? Talking cats? Tofu enthusiasts?"
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Star Wars crossover fic Jedi Harris has a scene in Xander's physics class where Jonathan Levinson is supposed to be making a circuit board and failing miserably. Xander reflects that if it's ever turned on, "it would either melt, spontaneously combust or pick up Radio Moscow".
  • During The Emiya Clan Christmas Special, this is invoked when Keiko gets her hands on the God/Burning Gundam.
  • In Sapphire Eleanor Rose Suzette de Mont vs. Canon, the Long List of charges Charlie has racked up include throwing someone's computer out the window, impersonation, having a threesome with fictional characters, getting kicked out of Rio (twice), and pirating music.
  • Beyond the Veil Volume One: Arrival:
    In his day, Harry Potter had fought many fearsome creatures and won many deadly battles. In his fifteen, nearly sixteen, years of life, he had been through a great number of tough trials. He had fought dragons, giant snakes, soul sucking monsters, deadly wizards, and had to sleep in the same room with Ron Weasley's snoring.
  • Deadpool Announces Hit the Mark shows Deadpool on Lian Yu as Oliver's trainer. It then cuts to a second Deadpool wearing heavy body padding and a pink wig ("Tumblrpool") typing at a computer. In a clear jab at the crazier members of the Arrow fandom...
    Tumblrpool: Oh...did you see how Wade and Oliver looked at each other? It was pure magic! They are truly made for each other, I don't care what you say. And if you say differently, you are a misogynistic, homophobic, islamophobic, Nazi...meanie!
    Tumblrpool: (slams keyboard, turns and faces narrator) HOW DARE YOU ASSUME MY GENDER? You triggered me! You awful, vile, disgusting, bottom-feeding, nasty, stinky, wart-infested...straight white male!
  • In The Pirate's Soldier, when Mihoshi arrives on Earth, she makes a list of the multiple charges the Galaxy Police has against Ryoko: piracy, robbery, fraud, smuggling, destruction of government property, defacement of cultural artifacts and icons, highjacking, theft of police and military property... and indecent exposure. Heero and Ayeka take notice on the last one. Ryoko amusedly and shamelessly admits her body comes in handy to distract people.

Death Note


  • In the D.Gray-Man fic 69 Ways To Torture Idiot Apprentice, Cross is so thrilled that the author decided to write an M-rated story that he makes a list of things he'll do to use it to his utmost advantage. It reads: Drink like no tomorrow, gamble everything away, including Allen, smoke EVERYTHING possible, even pot if nothing else is around, get bitches, lay bitches, do expensive shit that Allen will pay for, kill all of his loved ones so he focuses only on me, and snore when I sleep."


  • In one Digimon fanfic featuring Yuehon, the Digidestined of China, this exchange occurs between her and the only remaining Digidestined of North Korea.
    Yuehon: You mass murdering, constantly lying, twisted and unrepentant Pepsi-drinking lunatic! Who the hell do you think you are?!
    Ko Hyo: It's not who I am. It's who I work for. And I prefer Coke.


Doctor Who

  • In Never Quite Done, a Doctor Who college AU, the college-aged version of the Brigadier has had a rough week with his dorm floormates: three students had set off the fire alarm, two nerf gun wars had broken out in the corridors, he'd had to call in a hazardous waste removal team... and he'd been rated the sexiest first-year floor proctor.

The Dresden Files

Fairly Oddparents

Final Fantasy VII

  • Final Fantasy VII Another Side: When Cissnei confronts fellow ex-Turk Shion and lists the myriad of crimes she's now been implicated in from assassinating the Shinra president to dropping the Sector 7 plate (which Deepground did but AVALANCHE took the fall for), she asks if she left any out. Shion reminds her of three counts of grand theft auto, which compared to the rest is really rather minor.


  • Forward: River catalogues her injuries after a prolonged pursuit, crash, walk across the desert, and gunfight.
    Catalogue of injuries: hairline fracture in shin. Multiple fractured or broken ribs. Lacerations, bruising of back, vertebrae, possibly wrenched shoulder and back muscles. Bullet lodged in gut, precise location unknown. Head trauma, ninety-plus percent probability of concussion (postulate round ricocheting off boulder and bouncing off skull, or maybe shrapnel knocked loose by same) Bruised jaw. Sunburns.


  • Niceties in a Crisis: Kurt is telling Will off for treating him unfairly. While speculating about why Will doesn't like him, he says: "I don't know if it's some kind of latent homophobia, or that you don't really know what to do with me, or if you just don't want someone in the club whose hair is better than yours."

Good Omens

  • The Sacred and the Profane: "...Caphriel had a bizarre tendency to get upset over the slightest things, like murder and rape and duck torture." Mostly used to show that, no, Zirah really doesn't see much difference in the levels of those crimes; why do you ask?

Gravity Falls

  • You're Like, the Magic Twins or Something: Come up to Mabel and Dipper's annoyance. Demon magic and floating jewelry, fine, the Pines parents can take that... But no way are their kids getting tattoos, they’re teenagers for goodness sake!

Harry Potter

  • The fanfic One Wizard Too Many has a warning about the following: "Mayhem, destruction, and HHRnote ."
  • A sort of 'reverse example' with Hermione's Badass Boast in The Parselmouth of Gryffindor:
    Hermione: "I am Hermione Jean Granger. Some of my dearest friends are a millennium-old Basilisk and the Vanquisher of Voldemort. I got O-s on every single exam I took last year."
  • A certain very much NSFW fan fic story has the following disclaimer:
    The fanfiction listed herein could contain any of the following: angst, bitextual, blasphemy, bondage, brother-fucking, crack, cross-dressing, cross-gen, dead bodies, dirty talk, drinking, dubious consent, drug use, felching, female/female, felching, frottage, foul language, gen, gratuitious house-elf nudity, grudge-fucking, hatesex, het, incest, male/male, mindfucking, more angst, porn, rimming, sex, smoking, slash, smut, Stan Shunpike, substance abuse, threesomes (or moresomes), underage characters, unhealthy relationships, violation of inanimate objects, violence, voyeurism, wanking, and the occasional typographical error.
  • The blurb for Harry Potter And Lord Of Zenth Mage:
  • In Confessions Draco tells Harry that he would have preferred to be in love with someone "smarter, with less of a hero syndrome and better hair."
  • In Dumbledore's Army and the Year of Darkness, Ginny rattles off a list of equipment she's managed to smuggle into the castle, finishing with "and some Pygmy Puff treats for Arnold".
  • This moment from Lord of Caer Azkaban:
    Auror: Minister Fudge, you are under arrest for Abuse of Power, Corruption, Perjury, Enlisting Others to Make False Statements, Fraud, and Jaywalking.
  • In Meet the Godparents, Harry is nervous about meeting Ron's Aunt Muriel and tries to joke about it.
    Harry: I've outflown a dragon, I've faced down hordes of Death Eaters, and I've snatched the last dessert away from Ron.
  • Sweet Protector:
    Harry: This is not good. But hey, I survived Voldemort, the Dursleys, and Snape's potion classes!
  • In Vengeance from the Grave Harry confronts Dumbledore who, in addition to stunning Harry in the back (allowing him to be captured and tortured by Voldemort and his minions) has been stealing from his account to fund the Order of the Phoenix.
    Harry: You will be charged with treason for having attacked an officer of the ministry, thereby leaving him at the mercy of the very terrorist he was defending the public, including your own ungrateful arse, against. Add to that fraud, grand theft and if I have my way; offensive facial hair!
  • In Royal Chances alternate-dimension Voldemort threatens to torture Umbridge for the scar on Harry's hand.
    Harry: No Tom, you can't kill anyone. Nor can you chop them up into little pieces or water torture them or make them watch any cute children's movies that are really cute.
  • In Harry Potter the Undead Slayer Harry, having been pulled from his foster family by the Goblet of Fire, threatens to begin "enhanced interrogations" if he doesn't get some answers pretty soon. Cedric unwisely asks what he means by that.
    Harry: Thumbscrews, bamboo splinters, the rack, waterboarding, Justin Bieber music...though the last is banned in three galaxies.
  • An Ancient Method of Torturing Males:
    Hot needles under the fingernails, boiling oil being poured on unprotected flesh, literal salt rubbed into wounds, prolonged exposure to whiny teeny-bopper pop music; these were all things that he'd rather be going through at the moment than the torture he was now experiencing.
  • Storm of Yesterday:
    Emmeline Vance: Sirius Black is a cad of terrible quality. He's foul-mouthed, inappropriate, completely offensive in any situation and he has a tiny prick!
  • In Jedi Potter Dolores Umbridge is arrested for several offenses.
    She was also found guilty of possession of eleven dark arts artifacts; a Mayan sacrifice blade...well used; the heart of a human child; a cursed mask designed to induce nightmares of the lethal kind into the wearer; a phial of basilisk venom; six blood quills; and a pair of really tight, high-heeled shoes that had no purpose other than to torture the person wearing them.
  • In Take no Umbridge II: Taking Defense Dumbledore evaluates the charges against Umbridge.
    Dumbledore: I believe that brings it to two hundred seventy-six charges for her trial thus far. And can someone please tell me who added and what is jaywalking?
  • In Hunt McGonagall explains the differences between the idealized Boy-Who-Lived and the real Harry Potter to Ginny.
    McGonagall: He has a hot temper, he likes to keep peace, even if he should speak out, he bottles all his problems up and his handwriting resembles chicken scratch.
  • Embracing Destiny:
    And many students were sick of how the standards had been lowered, how discrimination had alienated the houses from each other and especially the girls disliked how the uniforms made them look fat.
  • Harry Potter and the Quantum Leap:
    Susan: Well, this raises the legend of the 'Boy-Who-Lived'... Not only does he defeat a mountain troll barehanded, now he slays basilisks. What's next?
    Harry: Werewolf? Giant? Vampire? Acromantulas? Inland Revenue inspector?
  • Their Phoenix:
    Severus had survived torture, abuse, years of distrust and hatred, the loss of the woman he loved, the death of his best friend and mentor at his own hand, and Longbottom melting his cauldrons. Nothing was left to scar or surprise or shock him.

Haruhi Suzumiya

  • In Kyon: Big Damn Hero, Kyon mentions casually to Sasaki that he has to meet several past instances of people, fight 12 thugs at once, arrange to deliver an alien artifact and study for a math test. It scares the crap out of adult Mikuru, but Sasaki doesn't take it seriously.
  • During You Got HaruhiRolled!'s court case arc, Haruhi is on trial. When listing her charges, the prosecutor plays with this trope: Haruhi is accused of thievery (the most serious on the list, but mentioned first), being stupid and an asshole, as well as pushing a random passerby. This last one is treated as severe as the others, because Haruhi is unfortunate enough to be in a Kangaroo Court.



  • Last One Standing: Kagome is forced onto an Immoral Reality Show.
    Of course, no-one wants to watch innocent people get murdered, so they choose criminals, vagrants, delinquents, and apparently schoolgirls with too many absences.

  • During the Justice mini-arc in Vaguely Recalling JoJo, Enya threatens to break Jotaro's spine, tear apart his flesh, and slash off all of his hair.

Kingdom Hearts

  • Those Lacking Spines: "Organization XIII was not a nice group of sort-of-kind-of-former people. They toyed with minds, they twisted relationships, they used lives as tools, they manipulated innocents, they spread chaos, they captured hearts, they lengthened the lines at the DMV and they commanded Heartless."

Left Behind

  • Invokted in Left Beyond by the Foreman after activating the sonic weapon to delay the Apocalypse by a crucial few minutes: "Since we're doing show trials today: Jesus, King of Israel, You stand accused before humanity of gross genocide, perjury, property damage totaling in the trillions, and jaywalking with a farm animal when you crossed through earlier. You have the necessity to remain silent, but we're reading your lips. How do you plead?"

The Legend of Zelda

  • The epilogue of "The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker" has a brief scene where the author goes over the pirates that have scars, since Link has a permanent one from his final battle against Ganondorf and he's looking for a way to justify it. The list gets more crazy as it goes along. Tetra got hers from a duel with a rival pirate gang, Gonzo fell off one of Niko's badly designed assault courses, Nudge fell over in the shower (which appears to be his favourite place) and accidentally turned the temperature all the way up in the process. Niko... fell off the top bunk.

The Lord of the Rings

  • In The Official Fanfiction University of Middle-earth: "Sauron would going to roast her for breakfast. He would make her grow long pointy nails. He would flunk her." (OK, the latter might be pretty bad for a fangirl, who'd have to leave Middle-Earth.)

Miraculous Ladybug

  • In Spellbound, Marinette's mother scolds Adrien and Felix for sneaking out of their bathroom window to come and visit - not because they're defying their father, but because it's a long way down.

My Hero Academia

  • In Coyote, after all of Class 1A leaves in disgust over Aizawa threatening to expel the lowest scorer on the Quirk Apprehension Test, for reasons ranging from outrage over how Izuku was treated to an inability to trust Aizawa not to expel them on a whim, Aizawa gets called on the carpet in front of his fellow teachers and the principal. The principal then unleashes a lengthy "The Reason You Suck" Speech on Aizawa, calling him out for ruining the lives of the students he expelled, losing his students' trust by playing "logical ruses" on them, setting his standards high to make himself look better as a teacher, and... having poor grooming and sleeping in class.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

  • Whisper: Trixie apologizes to Twilight Sparkle and her friends for all the things she did in the story and in the episode "Boast Busters", including that she's sorry "for thinking that you were an evil sorceress and wanting you to be tarred and feathered or turned to stone or crushed by a garbage wagon or kicked in the shins."
  • Getting Back on Your Hooves has a similar example when Trixie brings up her List of Transgressions from "Boast Busters" (first wondering why Rarity fixed her mane rather than take revenge and second apologizing to Rainbow, both times ending with the fact she bragged about it.
    Trixie: I called your mane a rat's nest, goaded you into a rigged contest, turned your hair into a disgusting green mess, humiliated you in front of the entire town, and then bragged about doing it! And before that I publicly humiliated two of your best friends!
    Spike: Which you also bragged about.
    Trixie: Exactly!

  • Used in narration in The Vinyl And Octavia Series, when Octavia first goes to Vinyl Scratch's apartment.
    Octavia hesitated as she looked around the cramped apartment. Piles of unwashed clothes lay everywhere, which was odd as Vinyl had never worn clothes in the short time Octavia knew her. The sink was filled with messy dishes, which Octavia suspected were several days, if not weeks, old. The walls were cracked, the ceiling was leaking in a few rooms, and the carpet didn’t match the drapes.
  • The Alternate Adventures of the Power Ponies: In the Mane-Raising Joke arc, The Mane-iac tries to break into Twilight's apartment, ponynaps Rarity, breaks into a glue factory... and then robs a Chineighse.

I hate playing the Big Damn Hero."

One Piece

  • In Ripples, Waves, Tsunamis, a One Piece fic, we have this:
    Luffy: Of course I'm serious! This bastard broke on to our ship, our home, hurt Nami, almost drowned Chopper…and most importantly…HE STOLE ALL MY MEAT!
  • Multiple examples from the One Piece Self-Insert Fic This Bites!:
    • In the Christmas Episode, Wiper binds and gags Aisa and uses her as the replacement for their broken Christmas Star. What did she do to earn this? Sneaking out to Upper Yard to gather Vearth, accepting a gift of roasted almonds from the Skypiean Conis rather than fighting to the death as a Shandoran should, and using her Mantra to figure out where they were hiding the Christmas presents. That last one is what makes Laki think the punishment is appropriate.
    • Vivi beating up Mr. 2 in Chapter 20. She slugs him in the throat for hurting Usopp, breaks his nose for attacking her country, and then gives him a Groin Attack for his outfit.
    • The list of offenses Drake levels against Cross ends with the illegal importation of South Birds, an endangered species.

  • The first chapter of The Retelling of Pokémon Colosseum has one of these:
    Gonzap: Very smart, Wes. You've destroyed our main snag machine, and stolen the other one. You took our zoomer. And to boot, you used those explosives we had been planning to use as well to utterly destroy our base. AND half of my moustache has burnt off, and I don't have any eyebrows anymore. You'll pay for this.
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: What Came After:
    • Popplio when he and his teammates confront the Klefki trio:
    Popplio: We're taking you in for illegal possession of explosives, illegal detonation of explosives, gross property damage, theft in the first degree, terrorizing citizens, and interrupting our dinner!
    • The above example is subverted when it turns out that the last thing is an actual crime that the Klefki trio will serve additional time for. Justified in that R.E.E.D. teams need to be at peak performance, and an important part of doing so is being able to eat properly and regularly.
    • Cacturne, an outlaw, is said by the narration to have "robbed banks, terrified innocents, and returned already-worn clothes for a full refund".
    • What R.E.E.D. stands for (Rescue, Exploration, Enforcement, Delivery) also counts.
  • In Pokémon Reset Bloodlines, Sabrina is guilty of kidnapping, murder, and plagiarizing a move from a Pokémon Coordinator to create a Laser Blade with her Kadabra's Psycho Cut and their spoons.
