* ''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.)

* In ''Series/WolfHall'', Thomas Cromwell makes use of Lady Rochford's hatred of her husband when she accuses him of sleeping with his sister, Anne Boleyn. He finds it hard to believe at first, but it's an incredibly useful accusation for him to use in his KangarooCourt and allows him to include George in with the other men who mocked Cardinal Wolsey's death in a masque.

* 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.

* When someone is accused of [[{{Paedohunt}} being a pedo]] or a [[FalseRapeAccusation rapist]], they will usually be ConvictedByPublicOpinion and become a pariah for the rest of their lives ([[DoubleStandard particularly if they're a man]]). And if they're found not guilty, they've got a high chance of being despised even ''more'', because now they're considered a guilty person who got away with it.

* 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.

* In ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', Gaston doesn't believe that the Beast even exists. When Belle proves him wrong, he changes his position to accusing him of eating children - never mind that the Beast has been around for a long time and the only person who had been missing was Belle herself! Or that the villagers believed Gaston over Belle despite that Gaston was proven wrong immediately beforehand.

* In ''{{Exiern}}'', Tiffany despises Theresa, among other things because Theresa is happy with having been magically turned into a woman. In one very public argument, with the population of Theresa's home city as audience, Tiffany talks as if it was a fact and common knowledge that Theresa is a PedophilePriest child-molester. Of course, this smear has no basis other than Tiffany's own malice--and she eventually [[HeelRealization realizes what a bitch she has been]].
* ''Single Asian Female'' (written by a single Asian male) spreads the message that if a white man shows interest in an adult Asian woman, it means he's actually a pedophile.

[[AC:WebOriginal]]
* ''Website/NotAlwaysRight'' has [[http://notalwaysright.com/harry-potter-and-the-deathly-embarrassments/13072 one episode]] with a woman going totally overboard with this trope as she visits the movies and decides that she owns the place and has the right to deny random strangers the seats they have bought, all in the name of ThinkOfTheChildren--accusing two random young women of being potential child molesters and thus disqualified from being treated with basic human respect.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MonkeyDust'', the Paedofinder General is universally feared for his ability to call anyone a paedophile (and then get the randomly accused person killed.) For example, he kills the fiddler in ''Theatre/FiddlerOnTheRoof'' for fiddling on the roof, implying that it must be an euphemism for paedophilia.
