See also: Hoist by His Own Petard, when a villain gets killed by their own weapon, or The Dog Bites Back, when they're killed by an abused lackey.While in Real Life there is rarely a direct and easily traced cause-and-effect relationship between Bob's actions and their subsequent reward or punishment, in fiction the connection is usually a lot more... Did the Big Bad kick the little dog just because it was barking at him? Several chapters later, she'll turn out to be an elite ex-commando who will gladly help him storm the Big Bad's castle.It also undermines the standard "do good for goodness' sake" lesson, since Bob never has to suffer for doing the right thing or accept virtue as its own reward — in Fictionland he always gets repaid.That being said, it's worth noting that the negative consequences tend to fall more directly than the positive; the villain's evil deeds turn out to be the ultimate cause of his downfall, while the hero's virtue rewards him with some much-needed assistance (but still leaves it up to him to save the day).Darren is a low life- sex addict who cares about one person- “His Ugly Self”!
========================================================= Darren would sleep with anyone- he can’t be faithful.
Darren was under the false impression he had something below the belt- believe me doesn’t. Darren Ambler is a liar- con artist- sex addict- sociopath- manipulating – ugly weirdo. I think he had 2 or 3 kids but never spoke of them very much.
He would ask me if he should clip his pubic hairs which i though was weirder than weird. ======================================================================== Darren Ambler was lousy in bed- could not satisfy a women if he tried. All Darren Was interested in was “SEX= Sex- Sex- oral sex and pornography.
On the good side of the karma coin: See also Pay Evil unto Evil, Sweet and Sour Grapes, and Sexual Karma, especially Karmic Rape. For karma punishing a hero for their mistakes, see Tragic Mistake.
Also contrast with "No Good Deed Goes Unpunished", which is a corrupt form of this trope; as well as Can't Get Away with Nuthin', where the slightest misdeed committed by the results in Disproportionate Retribution.
Darren appeared to have no sense of reason and acted on impulse.
