* Sidney Glass (formerly the Magic Mirror) does this for Regina in ''Series/OnceUponATime,'' admitting to kidnapping Katherine and going to jail. The town sheriff realizes it's total bull, but the true culprit is virtually untouchable. * During season two of ''Series/BreakingBad'', Saul introduces Walt and Jesse to "Jimmy In-'N-Out", a professional fall guy who's spent so much time in prison he can't function outside it. He now gets paid to take the rap for other people. * In the last season of ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'', it's revealed that Barney's job is to be this for the company he works for: he signs his name to a bunch of documents so that, if legal charges are brought against the company, Barney will take all the blame. [[spoiler:Subverted when it turns out Barney's been a government informant the entire time, and is one of the few people at the company ''not'' in legal trouble.]] * In ''Series/{{Gotham}}'', petty criminal Mario Pepper was framed for the murder of Bruce Wayne's parents since the case was too high profile to be left unsolved. With Pepper taking the fall, the police look like heroes, the mayor is seen as having a handle on the rising crime and the mob doesn't have to deal with the extra police attention. It helps that Pepper is someone that no one, perhaps not even his family, would miss.

Afterwards he mentions that he took the fall for all the staff who went rogue and was dishonorably discharged. He mentions that he's happy with it, as Horiuchi and the other unidentified commanders were quite grateful and he was suitably compensated.
