* On ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'', Oscar is constantly being hunted down and savagely beaten by police (and was actually imprisoned between the second and third seasons) for the crimes committed by his identical twin brother. It's especially ironic because he's probably the only member of the family who ''hasn't'' committed massive fraud and "...maybe [[CatchPhrase a little light treason]]"; he never seems to be guilty of much beyond possession of marijuana.

* Happened at the end of the ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents'' movie ''WesternAnimation/ChannelChasers'' when Timmy wished that everyone forgot the events of the movie. Crocker had nothing to do with the plot (in fact, he only appeared in the movie at the end), but he was still affected by this wish anyway. Which was a gag to throw in his brief moment of sanity from his ''FAIRY GOD PARENTS!'' obsession and reinforce the status quo.

* Subverted on ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland''. Even though Heather is often helped in her schemes by another camper (usually Lindsay), all the blame is usually given to Heather. An example is when she causes problems between Gwen and Trent and everyone put the blame on Heather, even though Lindsay played an active part. Beth and Izzy never seem to get any hate either despite being members of Heather's alliance.

* A frequent gag in ''WesternAnimation/DanVs.'' Dan and Chris enter some establishment together. Dan proceeds to rant, make a scene, and piss people off, while Chris tries to stop him. This escalates until Dan and Chris get thrown out, and possibly get beaten up beforehand. In the episodes where Dan is arrested, Chris is often accused of being an "accessory" to the crime, and punished as well.
