* 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.

* An episode of ''{{Duckman}}'' has him find himself in a town where everyone is related to Duckman's arch-nemesis, King Chicken, and they put him on trial for giving the wrong answer to the "chicken-egg" question.

* In ''Literature/WolfHall'', Thomas Cromwell organizes the trial of Thomas More and just happens to place on the jury several men who absolutely detest the former Lord Chancellor. Cromwell's fellow judges protest that maybe they should ''try'' to find some impartial men, but Cromwell waves them off by saying he's not going to go scouring the countryside for people who've never heard of More. (Despite the admittedly sham nature of the trial, it does happen in a more sympathetic context as More is portrayed as TheFundamentalist and said jury members have lost friends, family, or property to anti-Protestant persecution. Also, Henry will probably kill them if they don't get a guilty verdict.)

** "You say what happened, and then I say what happened, and then I decide who's right. That's why we call it justice. Because it's 'just us!'"

* Subverted in the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' episode "A Farce". While the prosecutor is Brother Blood and the judge is the Brain, the jury are unbiased normal citizens and the Titans are actually guilty of what they're on trial for.

* ''Literature/TheDevilAndDanielWebster'' is the inspiration for most works that use this trope. Heck, the title of an episode will be something like ''The Devil and [Character Name]."
