* The ''Franchise/{{Saw}}'' movies have had a few people who imitate Jigsaw's death traps. One way to tell the crimes apart is that Jigsaw's death traps have ''some'' way to escape, while imitators do not.

** In the episode "Entrée", a murderer imprisoned at the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane kills one of his nurses using the MO of the notorious "Chesapeake Ripper". He claims its because he ''is'' the Ripper, but really he's been psychologically conditioned to believe he's the Ripper by the SmugSnake hospital administrator, who wants credit for having found the Ripper out. The real Chesapeake Ripper soon makes it known that he's still at large.
** Dr. Hannibal Lecter himself, in addition to having [[ImAHumanitarian his own successful career as a serial killer]], also commits a handful of copycat murders during the first season. One is a deliberately crude imitation of the Minnesota Shrike, whom [[TheProfiler Will Graham]] and the FBI are trying to catch, and the details of the copy are so off that they actually ''help'' Graham build an accurate profile of the Shrike. Another was done to cover up his own malfeasance and pin the death on the latest killer being hunted by the FBI. At the end of the season, it's revealed that [[spoiler:Hannibal has been preparing to frame Graham for the murders the whole time]].
