* One ''Series/DeathInParadise'' has a confession by someone that he killed the victim of the week in a drunken stupor and then when he woke up properly he disposed of the body, cleaned up and went to get drunk. [[spoiler: The part about disposing of the body and cleaning up the crime scene was true, but he didn't kill the victim. He only ''thought'' he had, because when you wake up in a chair after drinking heavily, with a bloody knife in your hand and someone you hate lying dead on the floor it's a reasonable assumption to make. The real murderer had arranged it with the intent of using a false alibi to narrow the murderer down to happen within a very limited period of time and then getting to the scene with a witness... but unfortunately the person to be framed had woken up from his induced alcoholic stupor ''before'' the limited time-frame was to start, and had been seen drinking at a bar at the supposed time of the murder, a fair distance from the scene of the murder.]]

** Happens in the flashback segments of Case 3 in AceAttorneyInvestigations 2. After Jeff Master is accused in the murder of Isaac Dover he's subjected to an interrogation so intense it turns his afro pure white after just one day. To his credit, it takes nearly a '''year''' of this treatment to get him to give his FalseConfession.

* When Detectives Bolander, Felton, and Howard are shot on ''Series/HomicideLifeOnTheStreet'', the detectives investigating convince one suspect that he'll do better in prison as an attempted CopKiller than as the child-killing pedophile he happens to be. Unfortunately, his attempt at confessing reveals that he's completely ignorant of how the shooting went down.

* Sadly common in totalitarian regimes. An old Soviet joke runs like this: The UsefulNotes/{{CIA}}, the UsefulNotes/{{KGB}} and the [[UsefulNotes/GaulsWithGrenades GIGN]] have an argument about who is best at catching fugitives. Tired of their bickering, the Secretary-General of the UsefulNotes/UnitedNations sets them a task-each is given a ten square miles of forest, in which there is a white rabbit, which they must catch. Their respective efforts go like this:
--->'''CIA''': The CIA bugged the entire forest, used satellite imagery, set up a network of informants among the woodland creatures, and interviewed all plant and mineral witnesses. After six months with no leads, they concluded that the rabbit does not exist.
--->'''GIGN''': The GIGN, after a month with no leads, [[KillItWithFire burned down the forest, killing everything in it.]] They argue that the rabbit had it coming.
--->'''KGB''': Four KGB agents walk into the forest. Ten minutes later, they emerged with a badly tortured squirrel, which is yelling "Okay, I'm a rabbit, I'm a rabbit!"
