* In the third trial of ''VisualNovel/{{DanganRonpa}}'', [[spoiler: Celestia tries to set up a complicated series of events that let her get away with killing Yamada while pointing all the blame toward Yasuhiro, but the exacts of the case make it impossible for him to be the culprit[[note]]such as the robot costume he supposedly committed the crimes in being unable to bend at the knees, preventing him from moving the bodies around via cart like the students had established early on in the investigation[[/note]]]].

* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'':
** Makoto becomes this during the first case, due to the first murder occurring in his room, on the one night he switched with Sayaka. [[spoiler:Sayaka had set up the room switch so she could kill someone and then pin it on Makoto, but died by her intended victim - Leon - instead. Setting Makoto up was unintentional on Leon's part (as he didn't know whose room he was actually in), but he played along with it when everyone else became suspicious of him]].
** During the third case, Hiro also becomes the culprit's fall guy, [[NiceJobBreakingItVillain but they do such a thorough job of it]] that Kyoko, Byakuya and Makoto all see through it immediately.
** And in the fourth case, [[DyingClue Toko's name is found written in blood at Sakura's crime scene]], but it was left by [[spoiler:Hiro - who, as it turns out, [[DrivenToSuicide wasn't even the actual killer]]]].
** The fifth case is a massive one, aimed at framing Kyoko. [[spoiler:The Mastermind took the corpse of Junko Enoshima - actually Mukuro Ikusaba disguised as Junko - and presented it as if it had been just killed recently. The entire thing is so convoluted that it takes two trials to solve, in the middle of which the Mastermind is forced to frame Makoto instead]].

* ''Film/GangRelated'': At the center of the film is a fall guy scheme that goes horribly wrong. Two [[DirtyCop crooked LA cops]] murder an undercover DEA officer without knowing he was one, and to avoid their crimes being exposed pin it on a random homeless guy they picked up off the streets and get a prostitute who was working with them to identify him in a line-up. At first the subterfuge seems to work, as the man thinks he really did commit the murder and wants to take responsibility for his actions. However, he is later revealed to be the missing member of a very wealthy family who used to personally provide medical aid in Africa as part of Doctors Without Borders, but had fallen into alcoholism and depresssion after the untimely death of his wife and daughter. As Tupac's character put it, they picked a saint to pin a murder on. [[spoiler:It all ends up blowing up in their face, with the prostitute cracking on the witness stand and identifying her two accomplices after she's charged with perjury, the fall guy being acquitted when the DA drops the charges, the two instigators turning on each other, and both of the two corrupt cops ending up dead for different reasons of their own doing.]]
