TruthInTelevision, to an extent, as enumerated in further detail on the MurderByInaction page. In many countries there is no duty to rescue another person in peril, but if you do attempt to rescue them and fuck it up it's possible for you to be held responsible for their death. There's a reason some doctors are told to keep silent if someone calls out IsThereADoctorInTheHouse.

* In the ''Literature/WarriorCats'' book ''Sign of the Moon'', while at a Gathering, Dawnpelt accuses [[spoiler: Jayfeather of murdering her brother Flametail. ]] In reality, the death was a tragic accident ([[spoiler:Flametail had fallen through the ice, and Jayfeather dived in and tried to pull him out of the water but would have drowned himself if he hadn't let go]]), but Dawnpelt was too consumed with grief to see the obvious.

** Hawkfrost thinks that Firestar failing to stop Scourge from killing his father Tigerstar is equal to Firestar murdering him himself.

Say there are three characters, Alice, Bob, and Charlie. There is a tragic accident, and Charlie is killed. Alice was present when the accident happened but may or may not have been able to prevent his death. This trope comes into play when characters discuss whether Alice could be considered the murderer of Charlie. Generally, there are three parts in this scenario: the Child (the person who died, Charlie), the Hero (the person who failed to save the Child, Alice), and the Fool (the one who blames the Hero for failing to save the Child).

* ''Film/TheAbominableDrPhibes'' is this in spades. Dr. Phibes (The Fool) spends the entire film in a Roaring Rampage Of Revenge against the medical team (The Hero) who failed to save his wife (The Child) after she was injured in a car crash.

** For example: Spider-Man fights Green Goblin over Gwen Stacy, [[ILetGwenStacyDie Spider-Man lets Gwen Stacy die]], Green Goblin gets HoistByHisOwnPetard, and Miles Warren GoMadFromTheRevelation and blames Spider-Man exclusively and attacks him as his SplitPersonalityTakeover villain The Jackal. To his credit, Miles Warren was FightingFromTheInside and when he wins, he realizes the idiocy of this and makes an HeroicSacrifice to save Spider-Man.

* In TheDCU, [[ComicBook/GreenLantern John Stewart]] failed to save the planet Xanshi in the ''Cosmic Odyssey'' miniseries. John's guilt for this was extreme enough in the years afterward that one could be forgiven for assuming that he'd blown up the planet himself. The Xanshian warrior Fatality blames the whole [[GreenLantern Green Lantern Corps]] for the destruction of her planet, and went on a crusade to kill them all.
