** In [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice "The Magical Turnabout"]], everyone thinks Trucy is a murderer even ''before'' the trial has started thanks to exaggerations and slander [[{{Deconstruction}} in the media and the social networks]]. Trucy haters even ask for her death penalty full volume during the trial. Never the InUniverse audience has been so vocal about giving the pointer finger to a defendant.

[[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that [[spoiler: Roger Retinz, a major media mogul called the Ratings Rajah, is doing his all to make Trucy look bad in the eyes of the public. Partly because he has a grudge against the Gramarye family, of which Trucy is the only known survivor, and because '''''Retinz is the real murderer and wants Trucy to go down for the killing!''''']]

* In Act Two of TheProtomen, Dr Light is framed by Wily for his beloved Emily's death. Wily himself remarks that this accusation, "whether truth or lies, gets said all the same" and will shape the public's view of the man. The court declares Light to be not guilty (not that that stops him from beating himself up about it) and yet Light is lead out of the courthouse through a horde of enraged citizens, all baying for his blood. This alone is what drives Light into exile, and paves the way for Wily to set up his totalitarian regime.

* The Tribunal system in ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' allows players to vote on a case as to whether or not the accused deserves to be punished. The players assigned to a case can review logs of the in-game chat and vital game stats, a supermajority is needed for actual punishment, and the worst punishments are subject to manual review by Riot Games staff (as are randomly chosen cases that don't warrant particularly strong punishment). According to [[ByTheBookCop the summoner's code]], celebrating a victory with [[UnsportsmanlikeGloating "GG easy noobs"]] deserves a ban. Also, any time a player just has a bad game, there are people who will try to get them [[DisproportionateRetribution reported for intentionally feeding]]. The forums are rife with people who claim they got falsely banned, though it should be noted that they are ''usually'' [[BadLiar hiding something]]. The Tribunal was removed in early 2014 and replaced with automated chat bans, similar to ''{{Dota}} 2''. This cuts out the whole jury part of the equation and just punishes you automatically if enough people report you.

* There are two cases in ''VideoGame/LANoire'' where you must choose between two suspects who to convict. In both cases, the evidence points more heavily to one of the suspects but the other is some kind of social deviant (a [[PedoHunt pedophile]] in the first case, a [[RedScare communist]] in the second). In both cases, there is immense pressure from your superiors to ignore the evidence and convict the latter suspect, and arresting the former one nets you a lecture and a partial completion for that case. [[spoiler:And in both cases, [[MortonsFork both suspects are really innocent]] and the crime was perpetrated by a third party.]]
