* In ''Webcomic/{{Shiniez}}'', Alan in collage was wrongly accused of being gay and subject to harassment because of this; things escalated when his sketchbook of BDSM artwork was discovered, stolen, photocopied and then posted around the campus. Worse still it was a friend of Allison, Alan's future close friend, who kept the gossip about him circulating. This likely accounts for Alan's cynicism about mainstream society's views of his subculture.

** Taken {{Up to Eleven}} in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'', wherein the Ministry of Magic and ''The Daily Prophet'' both do basically everything they possibly can to make people believe that Harry is either lying or insane and what makes it even more ridiculous slimy is that they don't even decide which of the two he is, making clear that all they care about is disproving him.

* In SandyMitchell's Literature/CiaphasCain novel ''The Traitor's Hand'', Tomas Beije seems to convince ''himself'' of his own slander against Cain. The first hint of just how far he's taking an admittedly less-than-friendly rivalry comes when he tries to send a message back calling Cain's competence into question- just his competence, he swears, read nothing into his choice of Thought For The Day: "[[TitleDrop The traitor's hand]] lies closer than you think." But he's not drawing any conclusions. Really.

* In PiersAnthony's ''[[Literature/{{Xanth}} Spell for Chameleon]]'', Evil Magician Trent declares that he had turned people to fish -- but only with water; despite the stories he had not left them flapping about on land. He then points out that if he had won the war and the current king had lost it, they would be telling horrible stories about that king.

* In Simon Spurrier's NightLords novel ''Lord of the Night'', large chunks of the BackStory are about MaliciousSlander. [[spoiler:Whether the Emperor slandered the Night Haunter, or the Night Haunter slandered the Emperor to Sahaal is unclear. Especially since the person claiming the latter is unreliable, and the claim is convenient to him, but it would explain a great deal.]]
