* Seems to be part of the point that the various narrators are trying to make in UminekoNoNakuKoroNi. [[spoiler:Any time the parents find the gold, they will inevitably begin offing one another like crazy in a bid to [[GoldFever keep it for themselves]], making every single one of them possible culprits]].

* In ''AceAttorneyInvestigations'', [[spoiler:Callisto Yew]] claims to be the [[PhantomThief Yatagarasu]] before escaping custody. However, Kay claims the Yatagarasu was [[spoiler:her father.]] Turns out neither is quite true. [[spoiler:They were both ''members'' of [[CollectiveIdentity the Yatagarasu]]--as was Detective Badd.]] * Part of a Jedi test in KnightsOfTheOldRepublic. Two people are suspected of killing a man, when it turns out that both of them intended to do so independently of each other, but one of them (non-fatally) shot the other conspirator by mistake when he thought he was the victim, which allows you to find the truth yourself.

* In the Sherlock Holmes story ''The Doctor's Case'' by Creator/StephenKing, only one person technically did it, but once Watson explains how it was done, Holmes and Lestrade immediately work out that it could not have been done without the active assistance of everyone else in the household. Then they consider the fact that this would cause an entire family to be executed or locked away for life, the victim [[AssholeVictim had been emotionally abusing his family for decades and forced them to put up with it or be disinherited, and then, when he learned that he would be dying of natural causes within the year, changed the will so that the entire estate would go to a pet shelter, leaving his kin penniless, out of sheer spite]], they choose not to arrest anyone and instead quietly remove the evidence that the deceased had been murdered by his kin so they could destroy the revised will.

* Peter Milligan's ''ShadeTheChangingMan'' used this to ''avoid'' solving the mystery of "WhoShotJFK", instead Hand Waving with a glancing look at every possible speculation, then concluding that EverybodyDidIt. Justified in that Shade is a stranger to American culture, and that he was dealing with a madman's obsession covering up for grieving his lost daughter.

* ''MajorCrimes'': In "There's No Place Like Home", all of the tenants are responsible for the death of the landlord. As Major Crimes can prove conspiracy to commit murder, but not if the death was actually murder, the killers cop to a collective plea of manslaughter.

* The JB Priestley play ''AnInspectorCalls'' features this trope to a degree. Although the girl committed suicide, the entire Birling family drove her to it one way or another, and this drives the acceptance of social guilt that Priestley wrote the play to emphasize.
