* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': "Black Mask", TheHeavy for the villains, uses this method to kill people: By destroying their minds in the MentalWorld of the Palace, he leaves them as {{Soulless Shell}}s that will "accidentally" walk into traffic, fall off buildings, crash their vehicles, and so on.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine:'' The fifth Weyoun died off-screen thanks to a mysterious and inexplicable transporter accident, which despite some ''very'' serious investigation was never proven to be foul play, and definitely not tied to Damar in any way whatsoever. All the more suspicious since the Dominion didn't usually have accidents like that.

* In the ''VideoGame/HitmanBloodMoney'' video game, the best way to make Silent Assassin rank is to make the killings of your targets look like accidents, which you can do by many means in the game (falling chandeliers, explosively igniting grills, and other creatively nasty ways). This is also the only means of killing non-targets without affecting rank or getting a cash penalty. Of course, some methods of arranging accidents would probably start people wondering in RealLife. For example, the best way to off a pair of actors during a rehearsal is [[NotSoFakePropWeapon to swap out the prop gun for a real one]]. Then, when one of the targets shoots the other and comes to check, drop a lighting fixture on them. It would be hard to explain that with a series of a freak accidents.

to:

* Hitman: The series involves various methods to poison, sabotage, or nudge your victims to death without directly implicating yourself. While the majority of missions allow you to kill almost anyone at any time with any implementation, killing indirectly means less evidence to clean up for your handlers and therefore nets you a larger score.

* In the ''Creator/SidneySheldon'' novel ''Master Of The Game'', matriarch Kate notes that her granddaughter Alexandra is very accident-prone. When she discovers what an evil bitch her granddaughter Eve (Alexandra's twin) is, she suddenly realizes what the reader has known for pages--that all of Alexandra's "accidents" were Eve's attempts at ''killing her''.

* In the 1983 Australian mini-series ''Scales of Justice'' a crime boss threatens to blow the whistle on the corrupt police he's been paying if something isn't done about the drug charge he's on. The police commander hints to one of the officers concerned that the whole matter is an embarrassment to the NSW police force, and it would be a good matter if the crime boss was to have an accident or commit suicide. So the corrupt officers give him a [[TheEasyWayOrTheHardWay choice between being tortured by having his toes cut off, or blowing his own head off]] with a shotgun.
