** However, it needs to be said that Japp is a ''really competent'' inspector who solved many cases on his own (as evidenced by his [[CharacterOverLap appearance]] in Literature/TommyAndTuppence). It's just that compared to Poirot, ''nobody'' is as competent.

It's just that compared to Poirot, ''nobody'' is as competent. Japp also never viewed Poirot as an obstacle. If Poirot was present at a scene, Japp would be GenreSavvy and assume something big was up.

* Occurs with moderate frequency in DetectiveAcademyQ. Q's class is ordered by Dan to avoid revealing their status as members of DDS unless necessary, on account of the fact that the revelation will often change how people deal with them. As a result, many of the cases involve some inexplicably ignorant detective who's too quick to jump to the wrong conclusions and needs Q to set him straight. Naturally, this almost always only lasts up to the point where they reveal their identities.

* The village in ''VideoGame/HometownStory'' eventually gets saddled with ''two'' of them. One is trying to make it as a private dectective, the other is the closest thing the village has to a police officer. The PlayerCharacter turns out to be better at resolving mysteries than both of them and is supposed to be a ''ShopKeeper''.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Noob}}'', the DayInTheLife of one of the players reveals him to be a police inspector. Before this, in [[Franchise/{{Noob}} the multi-media franchise of which the comic is part]], the police inspector's gaming avatar was for a long time best known as [[spoiler:the guy who's dead convinced that another player with little talent but lots of luck is actually an undercover elite player]].

* Detective Gumshoe from ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney''. Also Ema Skye in ''Apollo Justice''. Shi-Long Lang fills a similar role in ''Investigations'', though he switches between this trope and InspectorJavert.

* Recently, Batman's gained another: Edward Nigma, AKA ComicBook/TheRiddler, who has (probably) reformed and is trying to use his fame as a villain to leverage a career as a detective. It hasn't gone well yet. At least one storyline has involved Batman and Nigma playing off each other, picking up tips.

* ''Series/JonathanCreek'' didn't have a recurring Lestrade character, but individual episodes sometimes had one. One example is Inspector Gideon Pryke from ''Black Canary'', who like a good Lestrade spots several clues, impresses Jonathan by figuring out part of the case, but cannot solve it all himself.
