** 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.

* One of the "Slappy Squirrel" segments in ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' has GenreSavvy Slappy put on trial where the judge is a wolf, the jury are all wolves, and the prosecuting attorney is the grandson of the plaintiff, Slappy's longtime nemesis Walter Wolf. Slappy wins because she has a "dynamite case" -- literally. That is to say, she put cases of dynamite underneath the jurors' seats, so even though she more or less confessed to the crime she was accused of plus ''blowing Walter up afterwards'', the jury found her Not Guilty.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', Enies Lobby technically serves as a courthouse, even though criminals are only brought through there on their way to the underwater prison Impel Down, or to Marine Headquarters, and has an almost absurd pretense of justice. Criminals are judged by the Just Eleven Jurymen, who are pirates who have been sentenced to death and pronounce any criminal guilty to take as many down with them as they can. Judge Baskerville, [[spoiler: actually three people who sit together to form]] a three-headed man, has a strange way of passing sentences: the left head favors punishing criminals, the right side favors leniency, and the center offers the more extreme "compromise" of execution. [[note]]impel down is one of those [[FateWorseThanDeath fates worse than death]] so it might be a good compromse from a certain point of view[[/note]] As such, no criminal has ever been acquitted. Strangely enough, [[spoiler: Nico Robin and Franky]] don't get this treatment when they are taken through Enies Lobby.
