As for WHY someone was framed, the most common reason is because wants to ruin the reputation of a rival, someone whom they think is a bad influence, or someone with good publicity who has not been very good to them. However outright murdering them(even if it's meant to [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident look like an accident]]) them would make them a martyr in the eyes of the public and might make things worse for the culprit.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Tyrion finds himself the victim of this twice.

to:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Tyrion finds himself the victim of this twice. He is framed for Joffrey's poisoning, even though Tyrion looks extremely confused after his nephew's death. It's ultimately a rather poor job, considering that anyone who knows Tyrion would know that, if he did have Joffrey killed, he'd be smart enough not to be holding the poisoned goblet and looking on in StunnedSilence not five feet from the victim.

* ''ComicStrip/ModestyBlaise'': As the title indicates, "The Murder Frame" involves a particularly expert frame job that puts Willie in the frame for murder. He goes on the run and he and Modesty have to employ all of their resourcefulness--plus the aid of some friends in high (and low) places--to prove his innocence and bring the true culprits to justice.

* In ''Film/TragedyGirls'', this is basically Sadie and [=McKayla=]'s EvilPlan: go on a killing spree, report on their own murders for their website, thus achieving international fame, and then pin the blame for the killings on Lowell, who they're currently holding hostage. Of course, Lowell is a SerialKiller, too, so it's not like he's an innocent in all this. [[spoiler:While it doesn't go quite as smoothly as they anticipated, the plan works. The last scene shows that the cops did indeed blame Lowell, who is by then too dead to care.]]

* In ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'' Mitsuhide is framed as being responsible for the attacks on Kiki's suitors. Everyone who knows him realizes that this accusation is insane but he is arrested and forced to hand over his sword anyway. The reason he was chosen to be framed was unexpected in the end, even after Zen, Kiki, Obi and Hisame know for sure who it was that caused the attacks they still fall for the pretense that it was about who would marry Kiki, the sole heir of a very powerful noble family, when the aim was to separate Kiki and Mitsuhide from prince Zen and replace them with retainers loyal to the family in question [[spoiler:so they could quietly assassinate him]].
