** He didn't even last that long, really... far from it... In the very first chapter he explains his plan to get rid of all evil humans by killing them off to Ryuk. Ryuk replies that if Light pulls through with his plan, he'll be the only evil human left... [[ObliviouslyEvil Light, in turn, seems completely unable to comprehend the logic in Ryuk's statement that what he's doing is in any at all way evil.]] As noted down in the Real Life section, clinical psychopaths have a tendency to never admit guilt for their actions.

** Carcer in ''Discworld/NightWatch'' would deny he had done anything, even if caught (''literally'') red-handed. Just like the psychopath entry under real life.

** One of the recurring {{Mafia}} characters is Johnny Tightlips, who denies pretty much everything; at one point he's shot and even resists his fellow mafioso's attempt to get him medical aid (which may have been inspired by Frank Gusenberg; see Real Life below).

** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'': One of Bull's Chargers is an elven apostate called Dalish who insists she's an archer, since apostates are hunted down and killed. Nevermind that the Inquisition already has multiple apostates, possibly an entire organization of them if player with the mages, and may well be ''led'' by an apostate if the player chose to be a mage themselves.

* In the ''Literature/MatthewSwift'' series, Matthew's one-time mentor [[spoiler: Robert Bakker]] refuses to acknowledge that his shadow comes alive and not only [[FirstEpisodeResurrection killed Matthew before the series began]], has been hunting down Matthew and the [[EnergyBeings angels]] since he came back from the dead-- even after being presented with evidence and directly confronted.

* In ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', there is a scene where Clawhauser walks in on Chief Bogo [[spoiler: playing with a Gazelle app]]. Chief Bogo tries desperately to pretend he is not doing that, by hiding it from view and blatantly denying that it was [[spoiler: Gazelle]] that Clawhauser just heard. [[spoiler: The app's audio is playing loudly the entire time]] so this does absolutely nothing to convince Clawhauser. He eventually says that [[BlatantLies he's working on the missing mammal cases]] in an attempt to change the subject.

* In ''Film/ShatteredGlass'', Stephen Glass's fabricated articles fall apart with just the tiniest bit of scrutiny. The conference hall where he says he attended a conference on a Sunday isn't open on Sundays, and well below the capacity it would have needed to hold the conference besides. The restaurant where he claims his interviewees had dinner is only open during lunch. Even after these revelations he maintains his story.

* On ''Series/BetterCallSaul'', the Kettlemans continue to profess their innocence of embezzlement charges, despite the fact that they made no effort to cover their tracks, they made out checks to themselves, and Jimmy actually caught them in possession of a giant bag of stolen money. Eventually Jimmy starts begging them to admit the obvious for the sake of his own sanity.

* Music/DanielAmos's "I Didn't Build It for Me" (from ''Music/{{Doppelganger}}''), in which a televangelist uses his followers' donations to fund an obscenely lavish headquarters for his ministry. When others call him out on it, he claims that ''God told him to build it'', and that it's really for the whole church to use. And this was based on a RealLife incident.

I never would have built it \\
I really didn't build it for me...
