* One storyline of ''{{Series/Casualty}}'' had ObstructiveBureaucrat Nathan Spence pricking himself on a syringe left in a normal waste bin. It had actually been put there by a visitor to the hospital but he is determined to find a staffmember to blame and tries to get a health care assistant with mental health issues to admit he might have done it and forgotten. TeamDad Charlie, determined to put an end to the witch hunt, announces he did it. Nathan looks smug...but then a doctor says she did it. And then a nurse does the same. And the consultant.

[[spoiler:It turns out that Hugh is, in fact, innocent, but due to his circumstances, would have been willing to take the fall for Juniper]].

Variations on (and parodies of) this theme have led to it becoming a trope of its own: someone else claims to be The Hero to protect the real one. There's also sometimes the inspiring subtext that "we are ''all'' The Hero; kill one and [[AsLongAsThereIsOneMan the rest still stand]]."

" Because of this wide spread, villians and their minions have learned to [[InvokedTrope invoke this trope]] as well.
