* This [[http://www.cad-comic.com/cad/20120328 strip]] from WebComic/CtrlAltDel has a team of players from VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends playing the blame game. When someone actually takes responsibility for why they lost, the entire game crashes due to the breaking of the blame game that powers the servers.

* This seems to be the main skill that they are looking for on ''Series/TheApprentice''. DonaldTrump is most likely to send home the Project Manager of the losing team, so GenreSavvy [=PMs=] will find someone else to blame for the loss.

* Happens with disappointing frequency in MOBA games, where teamwork is essential and no one ever considers that losing may have been their own fault as well. More often than not, the losing team will have a FlameWar raging among them about who's failed the most, which will inevitably be taken to all-chat, much to the annoyance of the winning team.

So when someone is blamed, that person tries to pass off the blame to another plausible person, and that person either tries to put the blame back on the first person or pass it to someone else. Essentially the blame is now like a game of "hot potato", hence we call it the BlameGame.

The truth of the matter is either the original accused is at fault, some of/the whole group are at fault. On rare occasions it really was an unforseen person or event.

** In the episode "The Responsible," the Blame Game is played as Gumball is too scared of his mother to take the blame for Anais flooding the house by accident, so he blames Darwin, who in turn blames Anais, since she actually did flood the house. Anais, however, blames their mother for leaving Gumball in charge, who, in turn, blames their father for not finding a proper babysitter. RIchard, not having anyone else to blame, blames the internet. [[SureLetsGoWithThat Everyone else agrees.]]

** In the episode "The Prank," after the prank war between Gumball, Darwin, and Richard goes a little too far and wrecks the house, Nicole angrily demands to know who caused all the damage. All three of them immediately yell "It was him!" and point at each other.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' episode "The Chase," Katara blames Toph for them being on the run for days without sleep because she never helps them set up camp when they land, Toph blames Appa for leaving a trail of shed fur, and Aang blames Toph for making Appa carry extra weight after she joined the group, leading to fun exchanges like this one:
-->'''Toph:''' You're blaming me for this?
-->'''Aang:''' No, she's not blaming you.
-->'''Katara:''' No, I'm blaming her!

* The second act of ''IntoTheWoods'' has the songs "Your Fault" (where the protagonists try to name the source of the problem) and part of "Last Midnight" (where the Witch calls the protagonists out on wasting time placing blame rather than solving the problem). It's also a DarkReprise of the song "Ever After," where everyone had congratulated themselves on their bravery and cleverness to find their HappilyEverAfter.
