* During the eighth and ninth ''Literature/{{Safehold}}'' books, the Inner Circle has kept an eye on a conspiracy by nobles in Sharleyan's Kingdom of Chisholm to overthrow the crown. For the most part, the Inner Circle repeats what they did in a previous similar occurrence: use their access to SurveillanceAsThePlotDemands to keep track of evidence so it can be later found by more mundane methods. In this instance, they also keep track of written messages passed between the conspirators so that, when it comes time for trial, exact replicas of that correspondence can be used as evidence even when the conspirators themselves have since burned the originals. As one character notes, they can't exactly say they know the evidence is fake because they already destroyed it, and destroying it in the first place is an admission of guilt unto itself.

Added DiffLines:

* At least two episodes of ''Series/{{Elementary}}'' have featured this: in one, Holmes quickly figured out the "murder victim" had committed suicide in an attempt to frame a man for her death as there was no proof of his guilt in another crime, but his curiosity is roused to uncover the real crimes the man committed. In another, a man is responsible for a series of crimes in the past which result in one of his victims committing murder, which Holmes and Watson prove. Unwilling to accept the KarmaHoudini aspect of the man living free in a country without an extradition treaty with the United States, Holmes has a contact of his with the local police plant drugs on the man and have him arrested, which because of the draconian local drug laws, will result in him having a life sentence in a very unpleasant penal system.

* ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' combines this with PretextForWar, as [[spoiler: LDS]] (Group A) convince the general population of their home that [[spoiler: Academia]] (Group B) is invading and that they need to fund/build an army to defend themselves. While it's true that B instigated a genocide, produces sociopathic ChildSoldiers, and has already started a major war, they hadn't launched a full attack on A's home ''yet''.[[note]]By "not a full attack," we mean that B sent a small elite squadron to A's territory on a mission to grab two [[MacGuffin MacGuffins]]. While the squad willingly attacked any and all innocent bystanders they encountered, they didn't actually go to A's territory with the intention of starting another war or committing a ''second'' genocide.[[/note]]
