* The one thing that the darklords of ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' have in common. All of them committed terrible deeds (the Acts of Ultimate Darkness) [[ObliviouslyEvil and refuse to acknowledge that they did anything wrong]]. [[HeelRealization Acknowledging their crimes]] and their [[ItsAllMyFault responsibility for their own misfortune]] is actually the first step towards escaping their [[IronicHell realms]]. Then again, anyone who had the strength of character to do this would never have become a darklord in the first place.

** White people in general, when they don't get something they want. Didn't get into the college they wanted? It's the minority student's fault, affirmative action kept them out, white people have it so hard. It couldn't possibly be a bad high school GPA or low standardized test scores keeping them out.

* ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'': Brad Starlight [[WrongGenreSavvy thinks he's a hero who is following a prophecy to save a princess and marry her]]. He's actually her stalker who won't take no for an answer and gets beaten up, by her of all people. He refuses to admit he was wrong about everything. He also places all the blame on Wander, despite that Wander was actively helping him but only stopped helping when Brad was revealed to be a delusional fraud and didn't do anything else after that.

** One of Lord Hater's main flaws. He blames his losing status as a villain and lack of arsenal on par with Lord Dominator's on Peepers, rather than his wasting his resources on trivial things or his obsession with destroying Wander. Peepers has to call him out on it.

* This is a hallmark of a great many memoirs written by generals and politicians. For instance, after UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, a number of German generals etc. tended to blame Hitler for their own defeats and would of course deny any involvement of the Wehrmacht in war crimes.



* Many candid security or "intervention" shows (like ''Series/RestaurantImpossible'', ''Series/HotelHell'', etc.) end up with one or more people falling into this. The general premise of the show goes "My business is failing/I'm getting tons of complaints, and I want to know why", so hidden cameras are set up and/or people are sent in as customers or [[TheMole new employees]] while wearing a button camera. More often than not, someone is caught red-handed doing anything from slacking off on the job, to stealing supplies, to offering comps just because they find someone cute, to buying lower-quality supplies and pocketing the price difference. Somehow, these people inevitably say "I was just doing my job" or, incredulously, "I was helping YOU out doing this!" Almost never will they say "Well, I got caught, I'm sorry".
* On that note, at least one candidate on each season of ''Series/TheApprentice'' and ''Series/HellsKitchen'' will refuse to take responsibility for the instances where they cock up and claim they shouldn't have been fired after Creator/DonaldTrump[=/=]GordonRamsay has made it clear they are still the ones to blame.

* The ''{{VideoGame/Halo}}'' series's background info has had this happen with Doctor Halsey. Now that the war against the Covenant is over and risks and reprehensible actions are being looked at in detail, ONI is blaming the disappearance of dozens of children on Halsey, portraying her as an insane MadScientist that kidnapped children and replaced them with flash clones that only lived for a short while before dying in front of their parents. ONI fails to mention that the SPARTAN Program was ''their'' idea, and their attempts to step up their game and outright have Halsey ''assassinated'' actually ''causes Halsey to defect to the Covenant Remnant.''

ONI fails to mention that the SPARTAN Program was ''their'' idea, and their attempts to step up their game and outright have Halsey ''assassinated'' actually ''causes Halsey to defect to the Covenant Remnant.'''' Parangosky admits to Halsey that, yes, she was all for the idea of kidnapping children and training them as SuperSoldiers, knowing that many of them wouldn't survive the process. However, it was Halsey's idea to replace the missing kids with flash clones as an ''act of mercy'' for the unfortunate parents. True, having one's child get sick and die is horrible, but Halsey thought that it would be infinitely worse to spend the rest of one's life not knowing and being unable to move on. Parangosky doesn't see it that way, mainly because the whole thing is about to backfire on them and go public.

** She does eventually give a speech ([[MimingTheCues through Merida]], as Elinor is still a bear at this point) about how young people should be allowed to chose for themselves who they will marry.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfDragoon'': This shows up in Haschel's backstory of him being a lousy parent. As her martial arts master, he pokes and pokes at Claire to be more aggressive until she accidentally kills or injures her sparring partner. Then he accuses her of "planting a murderous intention in her fist." No, what happened on his watch, as a result of his words to his student, wasn't his fault.
