No.
Never compromise.
Not even in the face of Armageddon.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is the best quote of the greatest hero in my humble opinion.
Your story is great, and your characterization of Rorschach is perfect

Hi it's been a while since I last posted something on here .

Since you wished for anime here's something that you might like

* Revolutionary Girl Utena

* One of Tirek's main targets could be the world of the The Fairly OddParents as for the newer seasons of Fairly Odd Parents All I can say is it feels dead to me I'm sorry but it feels dead to me.

* One of his other targets could be the world of Doug for information I would recommend watching both The Nostalgia Critic Nicktoons review and his review of Doug's 1st Movie .

* One of his Tirek's biggest targets that could hit you right in the childhood in the world of the Rugrats. I would recommend watching A Rugrats Joke from Robot Chicken if you're curious .

Here are some examples that could be used

* Dustin Diamond, the actor who played Screech on “Saved by the Bell” Around a couple of years by around Christmas 2014 he was arrested Ozaukee County, Wisconsin, for possession of a switchblade knife, which he was alleged to have pulled during a bar altercation in which a man was stabbed , his fiancée, also faced a charge of disorderly conduct in relation to the incident to which , was found guilty and fined $500. Around last May he was was sentenced to four months in prison. but three months and was released on probation. However his probation agent determined Dustin had violated the terms of his probation, and Dustin was arrested again this month .

* Elijah Wood spoke to The Sunday Times about Child Sex Abuse in Hollywood Wood, who said there is a “darkness in the underbelly” of the entertainment industry, was not speaking from personal experience but was instead he referenced Amy Berg’s documentary on the subject, “An Open Secret.”

* Corey Feldman also opened up, once again, about his experiences with child abuse in the entertainment industry.

Feldman, who gained fame as a young actor in the 1980s thanks to roles in “The Goonies,” “Stand By Me” and “The Lost Boys,” spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about being preyed upon by older men in the industry.

The actor told the magazine that “they would throw these parties where you’d walk in and it would be mostly kids and there would be a handful of adult men.”

“The lure for kids is that they work in adult world. All of their friends become adults and they very rarely get to interact with other kids, especially because they don’t go to school,” he continued. “You don’t get that interaction, which you crave so badly. So when somebody approaches you and says, ‘Hey, this is a Hollywood party where you get to hang out with the powerful people in Hollywood,’ well, that sounds like a great opportunity.”

Feldman also spoke about his friend and former “Two Coreys” co-star, Corey Haim, whom he says was raped at the age of 11 while on a movie set. Haim died when he was just 38 in 2010 after struggling with addiction for years.

“He had more direct abuse than I did,” he said. “With me, there were some molestations and it did come from several hands, so to speak, but with Corey, his was direct rape, whereas mine was not actual rape. And his also occurred when he was 11. My son is 11 now and I can’t even begin to fathom the idea of something like that happening to him.”

If it were up to him, Feldman said he “would love to name names.”

“I’d love to be the first to do it. But unfortunately California, conveniently enough, has a statute of limitations that prevents that from happening,” he explained.

When asked if the problem of adult men preying on boys in the industry is ongoing, Feldman said, “Oh, absolutely.”

“It’s more now than ever because nowadays you can use the internet to create fake profiles and fake accounts. They reach out to little kids on Twitter, they reach out to little kids on Facebook, and they say, ‘I’m a big producer and I can help you,’” he said. “With social media we have more access than ever to everybody. It’s a growing problem, not a shrinking problem.”

{ You mentioned two subjects in this chapter that need to be addressed in relation to these subjects at hand }.

1. As you have stated before hand Rorschach is using Real World Logic and so wouldn't it be fair to say Real World Logic applies to the above like for Screech Powers, being arrested for a for possession of a switchblade knife, which he was alleged to have pulled during a bar altercation in which a man was stabbed ,etc. or Pete Fountaine from The Gremlins Or Clark "Mouth" Devereaux or his various other roles considering that he had to deal with not only Hollywood pedophilia but addiction as well .

2. Something else you have also pointed out is that realistically would be suffering shell shock and other traumas that goes with doing with they have to do as well .

* Is the New Dc Rebirth going to be referenced as part of the rifts ?
Raxius chapter 90 . 5/7
* Freddy's Nightmares: This anthology series hosted by A Nightmare on Elm Street arch-villain Freddy Krueger featured several episodes where Freddy himself was the bad guy. He never lost in any of them. { This would make Freddy Krueger a valuable ally to Jokill not to mention a tribute to Wes Craven who passed away last year at the age of 76 .}

* Glee: New Directions not only fails to beat Vocal Adrenaline at regionals, but they don't even finish in second place as they get beat out by the other team, Aural Intensity, most likely because their song choice was a blatant act of pandering towards two of the celebrity judges in Olivia Newton-John and Josh Groban (which, in the case of Newton-John, was clearly shown to have been her entire basis for supporting them). The worst part? Sue Sylvester, whom everyone had assumed would have screwed New Directions over as one of the judges, actually ended up ranking them at first and they still suffered a total defeat.

And in season 2 our Ragtag Bunch of Misfits make it to Nationals - and come in 12th. Vocal Adrenaline finished in the top 10.

In Season 4 dysfunction and new drama between the new New Directions members leads to new addition Marley passing out while performing during Sectionals, allowing the judges to unanimously declare the Dalton Warblers the winners of Sectionals.

Season 4 episode 'Dynamic Duets' was centered around superheroes and villains, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that this trope is played with and just barely averted. The Warblers take the New Directions' trophy hostage and are almost successful in convincing Blaine to come back to Dalton by pointing out the fact that Kurt isn't around anymore, tempting him with the guarantee of a Nationals win and telling him they wouldn't give back the New Directions' Nationals Trophy otherwise. Of course, by the end of the episode, Blaine changes his mind and takes back the Nationals Trophy anyway.

And then in the 100th episode, Sue Sylvester successfully disbands New Directions. The blow is softened a bit as Sue and Will have a drink together and she gives him her respect for having opposed her for so long. She even says she'll miss this.

* Growing Pains: In an episode where Ben refuses to cheat on a test but gets a poor grade, Jason punishes Ben, then declines to relent on his punishment when they learn his classmates cheated, passed and were lauded for their accomplishments. Jason uses this as a teaching example that sometimes the bad guys win and get away with it. "Sometimes, they even win the White House."

* The sequel to The Exorcist, Legion, Pazuzu scores a shutout win, undoing everything from the first book.

* ReBoot Season 2 ends with Megabyte sending Bob into the Web and beginning his real attack on the city. Later in Season 4 Megabyte also takes over the Principal Office and the series ends with a Bolivian Army Ending.

* Captain Planet and the Planeteers has the notorious "Whoo Gives a Hoot", which is the only time this happens. The Planeteers attempt to stop Looten Plunder with a court injunction against clear-cutting an old growth forest. Despite their success in finding what they need to stop the cutting, Looten's clumsy, stupid minions actually managed to succeed in stealing the evidence, leaving Plunder free to continue. The Planeteers and judge eventually discover Looten's deception, only to discover that Looten had already cut down all the trees. What makes it worse is that the episode ends on that note. In other words, Looten gets away with not only destroying a protected wildlife area, but he also manages to get away with defrauding the government. Not only that, he laughs in their faces about it and dares them to try and stop him again.

* Hey Arnold!: At the end of "New Bully on the Block", Arnold and his friends lose Gerald Field to the two bullies Wolfgang and Ludwig after being continuously beaten up throughout the episode. The last shot of the episode shows the kids forcibly hanging from the goalposts en masse after dark, while Wolfgang and Ludwig laugh nearby—giving one the uncomfortable impression that the kids are being held hostage against their will. No wonder most fans don't like the episode.

Here are some more ideas on the villains getting away with what they did .

24: Season 8 sees the IRK terrorists fail to smuggle the nuclear rods out the US, but succeed - eventually - in assassinating President Hassan . Then the Russians succeed in derailing the peace agreement with Jack's help, as it would have been forged in blood and lies. In short, the terrorists are 2 for 3, even if most of the IRK and some of the Russians didn't live to see their victory. Furthermore, Renee Walker is dead, Jack is forced to flee the country and the people's faith in their Government takes a severe pounding.

* Jack Webb's police dramas Adam-12 and Dragnet often had courtroom-based episodes where the criminals – even though to the viewer were completely guilty – had the charges against them dismissed for one reason or another. Witnesses failed to show or didn't cooperate, police officers make critical mistakes in seizing evidence … the list goes on, and it proved the point why sometimes the bad guys won.

* Alf: TV being what it is, series cancellation can create this trope by mistake. In the final episode, Alf is captured by government agents. It was meant to be a season end cliffhanger, but then the show got canned. Eventually, a TV movie was made to rectify the downer ending. { I don't know whether ALF fits into this category or not but either way it's up to you }

* Alfred Hitchcock Presents: Someone would often end up getting away with a heinous deed. In a framing segment afterward, mostly to placate moral guardians and sponsors, Alfred would assure us they were eventually apprehended by the law and paid for their misdeeds.

* Are You Afraid of the Dark?: "The Tale of the Midnight Madness" was about a mad scientist type, Dr. Vink, who attempts to save a failing theater with a special version of Nosferatu wherein the vampire wins. This being Are You Afraid of the Dark?, the vampire has the power to leave the film and terrorize the protagonists.

* "The Tale of the Chameleons." A chameleon impersonates one of the protagonists while the girl herself is slowly becoming a chameleon. If either of them get hit with water, they'll be a chameleon forever. The climax has a game of "Who's the real one" as the other protagonist has to decide who's the real human. She blasts one of them with water and throws the chameleon down a well, drowning it. All seems well, until the end of the episode where it's revealed the survivor is the chameleon-disguised-human, and plans to turn the other protagonist and both their families into chameleons as well.

* "The Tale of the Pinball Wizard". Ross seemingly wins the game, only to find that he's trapped and doomed to replay it forever.

* Also, "The Dangerous Soup".

* The Tale of the Super Specs". "It was a battle between our universe and another universe, and the other universe won".

* Arrow: The conclusion to the first season. The Hero seemingly beats the Big Bad and disables his Earthquake Machine only to learn that the latter had built a back up which proceeds to level half the city, killing the former's best friend in the process.

* Ash vs. Evil Dead ends its first season with Ash agreeing to Ruby's deal, leaving her to bring all the world's evil under her command in exchange for heading to Jacksonville with Pablo and Kelly in tow. Plus gas money. Panicked newscasts on the radio suggests that it is The End of the World as We Know It.

* Atlantis ends with the main antagonist Pasiphae being revived from the dead and regaining control of Atlantis. She terrorises the city, while our heroes are forced into hiding. At the end, they are about to search for the Golden Fleece, intended to set up a third series based around the story of Jason and the Argonauts - but the show was Cut Short, so Pasiphae has still won.

* Blackadder: The first series starts with the bad guy, Henry Tudor having effectively won already. Although he loses the Battle of Bosworth Field in the first episode, he eventually ends up claiming the throne thirteen years later after Percy accidentally poisons the royal family to death, then for the real kicker he rewrites the history books to erase Richard IV's reign altogether.

* Blackadder II ends with Hugh Laurie killing everyone.

* Blackadder the Third ends with the most ruthless and evil of Blackadders usurping the identity of Prince Regent.

* Blackadder Back and Forth had the modern incarnation of Blackadder manipulate history via time travel to become King of the United Kingdom and making Baldrick his Prime Minister.

* Blake's 7 is very close. The revolutionary leader, Blake, is killed by his ally Avon, it's very, very strongly implied that the other protagonists are killed, all their attempts to defeat the Federation have gone nowhere (except for a few pinpricks), and the Big Bad Servalan is still alive and undefeated. The only thing that makes it less than absolutely certain that this is a Bad Guys Win ending, is five of the protagonists might still be alive, and it's unknown how many rebels, or resistance movements, still exist.

* Boardwalk Empire's final season sees Nucky give up his empire to Lucky Luciano. Of course, he was bound to lose thanks to history.

* Bones:

* An episode featured the soon-to-be-executed Howard Epps convinced the heroes to look for evidence of his alleged innocence. They not only learned that he was guilty of that but also of other murders but, the law required the execution to be delayed because of the recently discovered crimes.

* In another episode, Dr. Brennan and Special Agent Booth find out a man had been poisoned by his stepmother, who admitted having done it so her own son would inherit his share of the inheritance. She didn't mind being discovered since she had few days left anyway as a consequence of sacrificing her medicine to poison her stepson. Despite the fact her son didn't like getting the money like that, the evil stepmother technically won.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

* In the Season 6 episode "Once More, With Feeling" the Monster of the Week Sweet gets away without any retribution after forcing the protagonists to reveal various personal secrets and feelings through musical numbers. Although he didn't get a bride or a dead Slayer he still seemed quite happy with the end result.

* Ditto for "Lover's Walk": the episode saw all 3 main couples (Buffy/Angel, Xander/Cordelia and Willow/Oz) break up, Cordelia gets impaled and almost dies (there's even a tease cut to a funeral in-progress, only for Buffy and Willow to walk past talking about how she'll recover), and Spike, having gotten over his intense depression/drinking problem and gaining a new lease on (non)life, gets away scot-free, driving off into the sunset to "torture [Drusilla] until she likes me again".

* Right before the Reset Button is pushed, the version of The Master seen in "The Wish" manages to kill Wishverse Buffy.

Doctor Who

* "Victory of the Daleks" is Exactly What It Says on the Tin. The Daleks lured the Doctor to World War Two England on purpose because they needed him, he inadvertently helped them restore their race, and then they escaped by threatening to blow up the Earth.

* The villains also come out on top in "A Good Man Goes to War".

* And 'The Angels Take Manhattan'

* In the 1st Doctor story "The Aztecs", this happens as a consequence of You Can't Fight Fate. The High Priest of Sacrifice Tlotoxl gets rid of those who are opposing his power when the TARDIS crew escape, the High Priest of Knowledge Autloc leaves to become a hermit, and the new High Priest Tonila is subservient to Tlotoxl.

* In "The Keeper of Traken" the Master may not end up in control of Traken but he gets what he wanted most, a new body, by taking the body of the nice character Tremas.

* Farscape: Season 2 ends with Scorpius stealing the part of Crichton's brain with the wormhole knowledge, after his neural clone has killed Aeryn, and Crichton is left to die on a slab on a barren planet. Even if it takes Scorpius another season to truly lose, he still ends up getting his way in the end, after a fashion.
Raxius chapter 90 . 4/5
Here are some ideas on the villains getting away with what they did .

* Silent Möbius — episode 20 of the anime concludes with the total victory for the villain, Ganossa Maximillian. First, Ganossa beautifully forces Katsumi Liqueur to admit her love for Roy Device. Then, the morning after they get engaged and spend their first night together, he kills Roy in a bloody way while Katsumi is showering. When Katsumi discovers the dying Roy covered in blood, she goes insane with grief, unleashing a flood of power and vaporising her apartment building. It ends with Ganossa standing in the ruins, bowing to the viewer...

* Berserk's anime adaptation does not end well at all for anyone except the bad guys. Griffith goes evil in a big way and becomes the fifth member of the Godhand, Femto. He throws his former friends, the Band of the Hawk, to the wolves as they get eaten by monsters straight out of nightmares, and then, as his very first act upon becoming Femto, rapes Casca to insanity right in front of Guts, with Guts losing a hand and eye to demons and being powerless to do anything about any of the above. The manga continues on from that point, and the point where the anime ends is just before the Skull Knight shows up to pull Guts and Casca out of the fire before Griffith and the others can finish them off.

* Devilman. It ends with Hell coming to earth, humanity being annihilated, and the hero, his love interest, and her little brother all dying.

Later related series reveal the true winner of the manga (warning: BIG spoiler, although not that surprising in hindsight): It's God

* Doubt, and how. Even after the good guys have escaped, Rei finds a way to get rid of them without lifting a finger.

* The first season of Asura Cryin': although the heroes successfully foiled Kagakagari's evil schemes, the Big Bad took a Villain Exit Stage Left, and got away scot-free while leaving our heroes bereft of their most valuable asset.

* At the end of Cars, villain Chick Hicks wins the final race of the season. Subverted because Chick would never have won fairly; he had to run one of the racers off the road, totaling him, and McQueen deliberately lost the race to help said guy. Chick is booed off the stage for being a dirty cheater, and doesn't get the sponsorship contract that normally goes along with winning said race. In other words, a Meaningless Villain Victory..

* The first half of "The Lion King'' ends with Scar successfully killing his brother (though admittedly the plan fails to kill Simba), taking over the Pride Lands, allowing the hyenas to enter said Pride Lands, and successfully persuading Simba to go into exile.

* In Despicable Me, the Villain Protagonist succeeds in stealing the moon. Then again, it soon returns to its proper place. On the lighter side of things, he is actually considered to be a hero for doing so.

* Minions: Gru steals the crown in the end.

* Pinocchio averts this trope with Stromboli, Lampwick and Monstro, but plays it straight with "Honest" John Worthington Foulfellow, his sidekick Gideon, and the Coachman, who all win (though in the Coachman's case this is because nobody opposes him). In the Video Game however you actually fight the Coachman where he gets a Disney Villain Death.

{ My suggestion would be to have Rorschach fight the Coachmen and finally put the issue with the Coachman to rest }
