* In Manga/DengekiDaisy Kurosaki's reason for becoming a hacker was to prove to himself (and everyone else) [[spoiler: that his father was not really a traitor.]]
* Takes place more than once in ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', with people hiring Kogoro to prove that they didn't do something they've been accused of. Sometimes they're innocent, sometimes... well, they're not.



* Variation in ''{{Anime/Monster}}'': the hero, Dr. Tenma, ''is'' WronglyAccused. However, he doesn't really care about clearing his name, considering stopping Johan, the actual culprit, much more important. However, some of his friends ''do'' care, and spend their time piecing together information in the interests of proving Tenma innocent.

* An old Franchise/SpiderMan story revealed that Spidey's parents Richard and Mary had been secret agents who had been killed in action by a supervillain, then framed as traitors as a final insult. Spidey then went on a quest to clear his parents' names.
* The Franchise/{{Batman}} storyline ''ComicBook/BruceWayneFugitive'' had this. The Bat-family teamed up to figure out if Bruce truly did kill his latest girlfriend in an attempt to protect his identity. The kicker comes from the fact that, during this time, Batman's just said "Screw This" and abandoned the Bruce Wayne identity.
** Another Batman-related storyline, ''SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker: Devil's Advocate'', revolves around this: While vandalizing the post office, the Joker is suddenly arrested, tried, and sentenced to die for the incident involving the poisoned stamps, but he insists that he has been framed and asks Batman to help him find the real perpetrator for the poisoned stamps and clear his name. [[spoiler: Near the end, the real perpetrator is found and reveals himself, and the Joker is pardoned, just mere seconds before he is to be executed by the electric chair, knowing that his name is at least in the clear.]]

* This is most of the plot of ''[[Literature/{{Dragaera}} Iorich]]''. Aliera was arrested on a very stupid, transparent charge and she refuses to talk to a lawyer or put up a decent defense. Vlad decides that even if she is a {{jerkass}}, he'd still prefer she didn't get executed, and he finds the idea of her owing him her life hilarious.
