* In ''Franchise/StarWars: VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', your party comes across an old and strongly respected friend of [[spoiler: Jolee Bindo (the ObiWan of the party) named Sunry, Sunry]] has been accused of murder and asks for your aid in clearing his name. [[spoiler: In a twist, he's guilty but ostensibly on your side (his victim was a spy for the enemy faction) presenting the player with a nice moral dilemma in a game where the dark side seems to be almost all [[KickTheDog random pointless thuggery]] otherwise.]]

* ''WeissKreuz'' provides a variant with an assassin instead of a lawyer: not only is target Koichiro Kase 100% guilty of the crime of the week, he's also 100% guilty for the gambling scandal that ruined Ken's soccer career ''and'' attempted to burn him to death. And shot him. Kase is a really, ''really'' bad friend.

* In TheRegenerationTrilogy, Prior becomes a double agent of sorts--he's working for the Ministry of Munitions during UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne to apprehend pacifists, while trying to shelter a family of pacifists he had known as a child. His unique position looks like it could be very useful for helping his friends, and even getting one of them out of jail. [[spoiler: It doesn't end well.]]
