* Subverted in ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye, when Megatron is put on trial by the Autobots, and argues that as the judge is his arch-nemesis Optimus Prime, this trope applies. The subversion is that A) Optimus has done everything in his power to make the trial fair, even appointing Ultra Magnus as defense attorney, who is utterly honest and knows the law better than anybody, B) Megatron had every intention of pleading guilty and facing execution, but a TakeThat speech from Starscream convinced him that he needed to make amends rather than give up, and C) Optimus ends up ''agreeing'' with Megatron and assigning him a redemption quest instead (conditionally, of course).

* ''ComicStrip/ModestyBlaise'': The villain in "The Hanging Judge" does this as he feels he was unfairly dealt with by Britain's justice system. However, rather than directly taken revenge on the former Home Secretary, he plans to imprison and execute the Secretary's daughter, as he feels this will be crueler.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' inverts the heroic and villainous roles by having Mr. Cat, the villain, be put on trial with the judge (who is none other than [[TheDitz Stumpy]]), the defense attorney ([[BitchInSheepsClothing Kaeloo]]) and the victim (Quack Quack) all wanting him to get punished. [[spoiler: [[ManipulativeBitch Kaeloo]] wins the case by manipulating Mr. Cat into confessing that he was guilty.]]

** In this case the JokerJury is a BatmanGambit; El-ahrairah only agreed to a jury of predators because he knew they'd have contempt for all rabbits and be impatient to be off hunting. Thus the jury don't bother getting to the bottom of Hufsa's story and regard him with contempt.
