* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueAction'' continues the trend in a scene where the heroes interrogate Deadshot, with Superman actually asking to trade roles with Batman. Not only does Deadshot not buy poor Supes' attemps at all, but Batman trying to be "nice" [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness scares him so much]] he confesses anyway.

* Occurs in ''[[Literature/JediAcademyTrilogy I, Jedi]]'' with Corran Horn as the good cop and Luke Skywalker as the bad cop. It works quite well, because Luke's role as the bad cop merely involves him sitting there glowering - and an angry Skywalker, prequels notwithstanding, is a terrifying sight indeed. Corran then pretends that Luke is telepathically berating him for coddling the prisoner.

* In a chapter of ''FanFic/Shadowchasers/Conspiracy'', Jalal tries to interrogate a rather stubborn prisoner - Aysis, a demonic bounty hunter - about what has happened to Karen. Aysis notices he's brought [[SexySecretary Dolores]] with him and assumes this is a Good Cop Bad Cop method, laughing at the prospect. However, she's wrong; it's Bad Cop Worse Cop, and Dolores is the Worse Cop. ([[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome What happens during the interlude]] isn't shown, but when the scene shifts back, Aysis is cowering, sobbing, and telling the now coldly-stoic Dolores everything.)

* ''Series/{{Hunter}}'': Before interrogating someone, [=DeeDee McCall=] (a short FairCop) insists that she be allowed to play "bad cop" despite Hunter's (tall, middle-aged) claims that he's usually the "bad cop" in these situations for a reason. The perp immediately sees through the act and tells them to get lost, so she upgrades to breaking in his door and threatening him with a baseball bat.
