* In ''Series/{{CSI NY}}'', the rapist who was let off after Jo reported a fellow FBI agent for botching evidence turns up in New York and a woman comes forward to say she was raped by him. However, her story falls apart when Lindsay's tests reveal that the levels of GHB in her system are still so high that she'd be dead if she ingested the levels she was supposed to have at the time she was raped. Eventually, it is revealed that the senator whose daughter was the victim of Jo's FBI case hired the woman to frame the guy and try to get him arrested. When it went bad, the senator killed her, hoping to frame the guy for murder, but that failed as well.

* In ''VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}}'', ConsummateLiar Celestia Ludenburg convinced {{Otaku}} Yamada to team up with her to kill straight-arrow Ishimaru. Yamada was already not on good terms with Ishimaru, as they both believed that a laptop (with an advanced and friendly [[ArtificialIntelligence AI]] on it) belonged to them, and now it had gone missing, with each one blaming the other (this was a very serious problem for the entire cast, but they just took it personally). She did this by telling him that Ishimaru had raped her, took pictures and then blackmailed her into stealing the laptop and giving it to him. That Yamada believed that Ishimaru would ever consider anything of the type is a never-ending testament to his stupidity.
