* ''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.]]

* In ''SinCity'' Marv, Dwight and Hartigan take the fall for Goldie's murder, Damien Lord's murder, and Roark Junior's attempted molestation of Nancy respectively. Marv was an ideal fall guy because he was a well-known violent thug. Dwight actually ''did'' commit the murder but was manipulated into doing it by Ava Lord, and Hartigan accepted his fate in order to protect the victim. [[spoiler:Marv ended up successfully framed, tried and executed while Dwight faked his own death to sidestep the issue entirely. Hartigan killed himself as a final sacrifice]].
