* During her time with ''Comicbook/TheFantasticFour'', ComicBook/SheHulk investigated a photographer who was taking pics of her sunbathing on the Baxter Building by helicopter. At one point she commented, "Well, I'm a lawyer, which makes me 25% detective." When the sleaze-bag journalist told her that the pictures were being processed and the negatives were in his safe and that if she took the negatives, ''she'd'' be in violation of the law, she simply crushed the safe down to where it couldn't be opened by anyone. Unfortunately for the journalist, the lab color-corrected the prints, making it appear that She-Hulk was just an unnamed, tall woman, preserving her privacy, ''from a certain point of view''.

* Harry Dresden of ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' is a wizard -- mixes up magic potions, summons demons, makes deals with faeries -- in a setting where [[WeirdnessCensor most people don't believe magic is real]]; he works as a freelance consultant for, among other things, the police, on cases with an occult or supernatural element.
** It is, however, noted that he had to go through quite a few lengths to become an OFFICIAL private investigator, including an apprenticeship. So, he's actually a qualified detective.

* ''Series/{{Leverage}}'' and WhiteCollar both feature thieves that use their skills to solve crimes. However the crew of Leverage generally commits crimes in the process while Neal is a consultant for the FBI. Also the villains of Leverage usually are in a position where normal law enforcement is unable to help.

The basic premise of ''VideoGame/NelsonTethersPuzzleAgent'' and its sequel is that the title character is the sole member of the FBI's Puzzle Division. While this sounds silly in principle, the game manages to make it at least partly justified for several reasons: firstly, because although solving puzzles is seldom integral to detective work, the same kind of analytical approach to problems is useful in some types of crime; secondly, the game works on the basis that the FBI is a VastBureaucracy and has a department for everything, just in case (one of Nelson's colleagues works in the department of Vegetable Crimes). Further, the plot centers around a town in which strange events have affected the minds of the citizens, making them obsessed with puzzles.
