[[folder:Theatre]] *Inverted in ''The Murder Room'', when the murderess, faking ignorance, grabs her discovered weapon (claiming she was going to bag it for the police officer), before it can be dusted for fingerprints, giving her an excuse for when her fingerprints are inevitably found.

The first thing he does is pick up the rifle. Crystal and Tony find him, but doubt he was the shooter and give him a head start.]]

* Being a parody of Batman, it's fitting that ComicBook/{{Rat-Man}} does it in a Marvel crossover... ''twice''. First by "securing" the weapon used to kill an old {{Punisher}}'s relative, just in time for the latter to see him. After several pages of dodging bullets, he manages to escape only to "secure" a metal pipe used to beat a certain "Mrs May". Seconds before {{Spiderman}} enters the scene.

** The MelBrooks film, ''HighAnxiety'' is Hitchcock spoof, with ''Film/NorthByNorthwest'' as one of its primary inspirations. Doctor Richard Thorndike is framed for murder when the killer wearing a Thorndike mask shoots a bystander and then puts the gun in the real Thorndike's hand as he's exiting an elevator. Thorndike's driver snaps a picture of the murder.

* Subverted in ''Series/BurnNotice'' -- the framee reaches down to pick up the murder weapon, only for Michael to yell at him not to do it. He takes Michael's advice.

* Subverted in AgathaChristie's ''The Hollow'', as part of a communal effort by the family involved to confuse HerculePoirot (a member of the family not only takes the gun from the too-obvious suspect but drops it into a swimming pool, right in front of Poirot) and protect the actual killer who is the obvious person all along, of course.

* In the ''Yoroiden Samurai Troopers'' (RoninWarriors) OVA, which takes place in New York City, Touma Hashiba (Rowen) visits the apartment of a photographer, only to discover him dead. Being a smart cookie, he ''pulls out'' the bloody knife... and stands staring, as a secondary character sees this, and runs away, screaming. In a weird way though this makes sense, Touma has always been shown to be highly intelligent, but severely lacking in common sense.
