* The novel ''Literature/BeautifulAndCursed'' has people trying to do this to the gargoyles. It doesn't work, since the heroine is an EnglishRose, with a StiffUpperLip and completely unfazed by the fact that hideous stone beasts can turn into humans.

* WAY too common in social media due to {{GIFT}}. One user has a grudge against another; maybe a political opinion, maybe they [[{{Shipping}} ship a pairing]] the accusing party finds distasteful, maybe they drew a character in fanart the "wrong way." Queue the grudge holder laying into the object of their grudge with accusations of every "ism" and "phobia" in the book, especially phrased in a way the accused can't debate without it being "proven" true. A particular incident of this came about on {{Tumblr}} due to a disagreement over WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse fan art, and ended with the artist attempting suicide.

* To get a bit more specific, there was a pedophile in YMCA Camp Kenan a few decades ago. Attendance dropped like a stone.

Accusing someone of being some kind of [[YouMonster monstrous predator]]--sexual or otherwise--can be a really efficient weapon. It can make people hate the accusee, maybe even [[InternalizedCategorism get him to hate himself]]. Or, simply use it as a particularly nasty ChewbaccaDefense to shut him up. In some cases, it may [[InsultBackfire backfire]] if the accusee decided to [[ThenLetMeBeEvil become what he was accused for]] and [[TheDogBitesBack bites back the others]].

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': It's ''known'' that Eren is [[spoiler:capable of turning into an abomination]], the attack is against his fundamental humanity and whether he's a threat to the rest of the humans or not. Quite a few people want him dead for their own reasons and in order to achieve that, they accuse him in a half-assed way about him ''killing two human traffickers as a kid'' despite the fact that: 1) they want to have him executed and 2) they have showed willingness to kill deserters which makes the whole accussation of being a murderer without respect for human life, very ridiculous and hypocritical.

hypocritical. Not to mention that killing human traffickers is more like an execution anyways.

* If a woman accuses a man of rape and cannot prove that he did it (and proving that is almost impossible, as there are usually no witnesses) she is branded a false accuser and hated by the general public, while the accused gets to be "innocent until proven guilty". There's some overlap with SlutShaming, as a woman's previous sexual experience is typically used against her, to "prove" that she must by default have consented because, hey, she had sex before.

Of course, the reverse can happen, where the man is treated about like someone who is labeled a pedophile as above.

* This is the favored tactic of the dark god [[ManipulativeBastard Tlacolotl]] from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]''. He's the genuinely worst monster in the setting and the rest of the pantheon despises him, but they have never been able to unite against him because he knows about all of their petty grudges and rivalries with one another. Too many of them are more willing to believe (and act on) lurid things he says about the others than to go after him, and he knows it.

* ''Literature/BringUpTheBodies'' ends with the execution of Anne Boleyn and the five men convicted of adultery with her, one of whom was her brother George. When Thomas Cromwell first hears this gossip from George's wife, he's rather incredulous but soon devises an explanation plausible enough for his KangarooCourt: that as siblings raised apart, Anne and George would find the other's similarities intriguing rather than inhibiting, making it possible that they would "cross the frontier" into a sexual relationship. (And, importantly, making it possible to get ''all'' the men who played demons in the masque denigrating Cardinal Wolsey.)
