* This was a defining trait of the Isla Vista mass murderer, Elliot Rodger; Apart from his most infamous crime, his manifesto details another incident: A few weeks before the massacre we went to a party and after being ignored by some of the partygoers, he decided to [[DisproportionateRetribution push them over a balcony]], naturally the more numerous group overpowered him, gave him beating, and he was the one who ended being pushed over; Elliot describes the incident as the last straw of the world's vendetta against him as if he was the victim, despite the fact that in his own narration clearly ''he'' was the one who attempted to push them over the balcony in the first place.

* In ''Literature/TheMagicians,'' Emily Greenstreet disfigures herself while trying to alter her face with magic; when her boyfriend (who she'd dumped for one of the professors, by the way) tries to help, he loses control of a spell due to being too upset to concentrate and dies in the MagicMisfire. When Quentin meets Emily late in the novel, she blames {{magic|IsEvil}} for the disaster, claims magic is the source of all the sorrows in her life and Quentin's life, and accuses all of her fellow magicians of being nuclear bombs waiting to go off. For added {{hypocri|te}}isy, her day job requires magic performed by said nuclear bombs to disguise the fact that she does absolutely nothing.

* In ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'', Comicbook/CaptainAmerica first chooses to consult a man who was already in conflict with Cyclops, then ignoring the fact that the Phoenix was almost always under control during ''Comicbook/JeanGrey'''s possession, and completely under control with ''Comicbook/RachelSummers'''s possession. He goes to Utopia, a sovereign nation, and he tells their leader to give up his granddaughter and brings an army to the fight. When asked to leave he refuses. He then leads in pushing and poking the Phoenix empowered X-men although they were only improving the world, which Reed Richards points out (although whether or not they're improving the world for the right reasons or just wanking off at themselves and their newfound power while basically putting all their oppressors under house arrest is debatable). He refuses to take responsibility for provoking the war and blames Comicbook/{{Cyclops}} entirely.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': From her first episode onward, Asuka always blames Shinji when missions and training go wrong, whether it's ''her'' mistake or completely beyond anyone's control. For variety, she also rips into him for apologizing for something he had no control over.
* Throughout ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion 3.0'', Misato is openly hostile towards Shinji for his role in bringing about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, while failing to acknowledge that ''she'' was the one who urged him on in the first place.



* [[Comicbook/InfiniteCrisis Superboy Prime]] kills a multitude of people, but refuses to take responsibility. Coming from a world where he was the only superhero, and being parented by a [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] Superman, he thinks the DC universe is full of degenerates. In his mind, it's '''their''' fault that he's driven to kill. No one agrees with him.

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' enemy Worldkiller-1 (essentially an alien, body-surfing abomination) whom Supergirl fought during the storyline ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' blames Supergirl for everything he does. He flies in a city, destroys buildings and kills innocent people? It's all Supergirl's fault because she doesn't let him take over her body and erase her mind.

Added DiffLines:

** Another serious example; [[spoiler:Matt Engarde]] displays no Psyche-Locks when questioned about the death of his rival. Though ExactWords probably played a small part in it - he hired an assassin rather than doing the deed himself - it's still heavily implied that actually thinks this absolves him of any guilt, at least legally speaking. On top of that, his motive for doing so was that his rival was going to 'ruin his reputation' over the fact that he'd ''deliberately driven his ex-girlfriend to suicide'' (not that the rival, who'd dumped her after learning of her past relationship, was completely blameless either, but [[spoiler:Matt]] treats the entire affair like it was just another way of one-upping the guy).

* Monokuma from ''VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}}'' traps 15 students in a school, explains that the only way for them to escape is to start killing each other, and then if they don't, starts providing incentives for them to do so and generally psychologically tortures them until the body count rises. If he's ever called out on this, though, he'll act offended that anyone would even ''think'' to make such an accusation. After all, ''they're'' the one's doing all the killing.

This escalates in [[VideoGame/SuperDanganRonpa2 the sequel]], where his "incentives" include [[spoiler:infecting a good chunk of the cast with a personality-altering disease and then withholding food until until somebody dies]].

* At the end of a genocide run in Undertale, [[spoiler: After you drag the Narrator aka Chara aka The First Child through the murder of everyone they ever knew and loved, Flowey will appear to beg for his life. A broken Chara, after killing Sans and Asgore without hesitation, is unwilling to kill their brother and their best friend, until [[CompleteMonster YOU]] force them to. After destroying everything in the Underground, Chara appears before you and asks you to make good on the promise to erase the world... the only way for a ghost to actually "die". Given Chara's suicidal tendencies before the start of the game, wanting that release is fairly understandable. But then you decide not to, you'd rather leave Chara trapped in the Undergound all alone for all eternity after breaking them emotionally and psychologically. Chara takes matters ibnto their own hands [[ButThouMust and does it for you.]] And somehow, despite being the entire reason you're able to save Asriel in the pacifist run, despite being your friendly narrator throughout the game, despite Undertale's entire message that NO ONE is irredeemable, and NO ONE is bad for no reason, the fanbase has decided that Chara is [[ForTheEvulz an irredeemable, psychotic demon that wants to destroy everything you ever knew and loved.]] And why? Well, because, as Chara puts it, we Undertale fans think [[NeverMyFault we are above CONSEQUENCES.]]It's easier to blame someone else than to take responsibility for the horrible things we did.]]

* Australian television presenter Eddie [=McGuire=] once blamed a racist joke he made [[note]]That Indigenous Australain footballer Adam Goodes should promote "King Kong"[[/note]] on some heavy prescription medicine. This news came after he made a joke about a woman drowning at a charity event[[note]]that he'd donate $20k to watch her stay underwater, risking either drowning or hypothermia[[/note]] which upset several people who claimed that these kinds of jokes trivialised acts of cruelty against women for entertainment. He wasn't on medication then.
* When a political figure says or does something outrageous, the media will condemn them and complain that it's the people's fault if they get voted in. They conveniently forget that it was them, the media, who drew attention to these gaffes while at the same time ignoring politicians who don't resort to shock tactics. Controversial views or not, if only one candidate is being reported on, then everyone is going to gravitate to that candidate. Conversely, voters who exclusively blame the media for the popularity of the incompetent and opportunistic forget that ''they'' didn't seek out any information on other candidates even if said information was more obscure. In other words, the media didn't inform the public of alternatives and the public chose to not be informed. This is pretty common in politics in general and it often occurs with candidates and the media gravitating to and causing [[RatingsStunt rating stunts]] among other things.

* Averted with Gray Mann of ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. While [[SurroundedByIdiots he seethes at the fact all his robots are imbeciles]], he admits it's his fault for designing them, [[KneelBeforeZod and claims that the "hailing circuit" was his one moment of weakness]]. The new Mecha-Engineers are where he once again shows he's ultimately DangerouslyGenreSavvy.
