* In ''Series/{{The Flash|2014}}'', Ralph Dibny was a promising young detective. However, when he lacked evidence to prove that a guy he was certain was guilty of murder actually did it, he planted the evidence. Barry, still new to the job, went the extra mile to ensure that everything was in order, resulting in him discovering the planted evidence and exposing Dibny, causing him to lose his job. Years later, Joe is about to do the same to Marlize [=DeVoe=] in order to prove that she conspired with her husband to frame Barry for his murder. Ralph does open the door for Joe, but then he explains exactly what's going to happen to Joe if he goes through with it. Joe changes his mind, realizing Ralph is right.

* On an episode of ''Series/TheBrave'', the team plants a listening device on paranoid arms dealer Boothe under the guise of holding him up and stealing a case of cash from him. They then overhear Boothe noting to his guard he must have been betrayed for someone to have known his route, and decides it had to be his girlfriend (who really was the source). In order to save her, they plant the money at the house of a Mexican Cartel leader Boothe has been working with, making him believe the cartel leader--who knew the information as he'd just given the money to Boothe for weapons--had ordered the robbery to get the money back, and Boothe kills him in revenge. This not only saves the girlfriend's life and preserves her secret, but the cartel leader had been responsible for torturing Hannah years before when she'd been undercover so the team gets some payback on her behalf as well.

* In season 4 of ''Series/BreakingBad'', Walt gives Jesse a rare poison known as Ricin in hopes that he will use it to kill Gus Fring. [[spoiler: When it later appears that Jesse's girlfriend's son has been poisoned with the Ricin, Jesse immediately assumes Walt is responsible due to nobody else knowing about it. However, Walt points out to him that he has nothing to gain by poisoning the boy. He then reasons that since the only thing keeping Gus from killing Walt is that Jesse refuses to cook meth for him if he does, Gus must have somehow found out about the Ricin and poisoned Brock with it in hopes of turning Jesse and Walt against each other. This convinces Jesse to side with Walt again, but the final scene of the season reveals Walt was responsible for poisoning Brock after all.]]

* During UsefulNotes/TheFrenchRevolution, there was a whole climate of ConspiracyTheory and paranoia and wild accusations were flung and hurled against each from various parties. One especially weird circumstance for historians is when later evidence emerges that partially vindicates the extreme accusations.

* Threatened in the climax the 1994 Creator/{{HBO}} movie, ''The Enemy Within''[[note]]A remake of ''Literature/SevenDaysInMay''[[/note]], the protagonists confront General Lloyd (Jason Robards), telling him to call off their coup attempt. Lloyd laughs them off, stating that by the time they could actually move against him, [[IDidItTwentyMinutesAgo the Vice-President would've already been sworn in]], completing their coup. Colonel Casey (Forrest Whittaker) tells Lloyd that either he calls the coup off... Or ''he'll'' confess: He'll paint himself as one of the conspirators and spill everything he knows (and as a "conspirator", everything that would've been hearsay becomes first-hand testimony). Lloyd angrily tells his people to stand down.
