* ''Film/AceVentura'': Finkle blames Dan Marino for the missed field goal that cost the Dolphins the Super Bowl, saying that if Marino had held the ball "laces out" like he was supposed to, Finkle would never have missed that kick. Even his parents think so, and his mom believes everyone else knows it.

* ''Film/AceVentura'': Ray Finkle blames Dan Marino for the missed field goal that cost the Dolphins the Super Bowl, saying that if Marino had held the ball "laces out" like he was supposed to, Finkle would never have missed that kick. Even his parents think so, Though Finkle's life was certainly no bed of roses after missing the kick -- every Dolphins fan blamed him, and his mom believes everyone he ended up going to a mental hospital -- Finkle resorts to [[spoiler:killing a woman, assuming her identity, killing someone else knows it.when he found out what Finkle had done]], kidnapping Marino, and stealing the Dolphins' animal mascot Snowflake for revenge, all instead of admitting that any of the fault for missing the kick lies with himself.

** Pete Ross blames Clark for making him feel like he's living in Clark's shadow. According to Pete, Clark is the reason nothing could ever happen between him and Chloe. When Pete gets into street-racing to have something in his life separate from Clark, and Clark tries to warn Pete that it's dangerous and his new friends are criminals, Pete accuses Clark of being unsupportive because he can't handle Pete being the one everyone thinks is special. Of course, when Clark is proven right and Pete's new friends turn on him, the first thing he does is ask Clark to use his powers to bail him out.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', Syndrome's FreudianExcuse falls kind of flat when you realize that even though Mr. Incredible told him he worked alone, Buddy had distracted him repeatedly, let Bomb Voyage escape, and had ''nearly gotten himself killed'' because he repeatedly tried to "help". In Syndrome's self-serving flashback to the scene, Bomb Voyage is no longer present at all.

* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'': In the Strong Bad Email "long pants," Strong Bad edits down a lengthy email into nothing like what it was originally (by ''drawing on his laptop's screen with white-out fluid''), then blames the sender when Homestar appears wearing Daisy Dukes and later freaks out over [[StylisticSelfParody a remark]] regarding his [[LongPants apparent lack of pants]] (and The Cheat for covering his screen in white-out fluid).

* ''Literature/TheSwamplingKing'': Duke Lenoden is very good at blaming everyone else for anything that goes wrong. He makes a very strong case that he wanted peace and it's Josen's fault they're going to war... even though he's the one who set up the situation so that there would be war if he didn't get what he wants.

* In ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/89379/1/vengeance-of-dawn/fateful-day Vengeance of Dawn]],'' Breaking Dawn is Princess Celestia's former personal student who grew entitled and spoiled because of the privileges that her status allowed her. When Celestia replaced her with a young Twilight but allowed Dawn to stay at the school, Dawn attacked Twilight in a fit of rage, forcing Celestia to permanently expel her from the school. Years later, Twilight has become an alicorn princess while Dawn is scraping by in Canterlot, unable to find employment because she believes herself too important for menial jobs. Rather than admit that it was her own fault that she lost her position as Celestia's student, Dawn chooses to believe that Twilight deliberately stole everything from her--Celestia's love, her status as a royal student, her supposed great destiny, the Element of Magic, and the princesshood that she would have had--and plots an elaborate revenge against her.

** Jessica also sometimes blames her less endearing qualities on being traumatized by Kilgrave. While her experience was traumatic, flashbacks show that her prickly personality, excessive drinking and resulting employment problems all came before Kilgrave.
* ''Series/LawAndOrderSVU'':
** In "Obscene" a woman was on a [[MoralGuardian crusade to censor offensive content in the media]]. Her son was a huge fan of a shock jock she was crusading against, [[InformedAttribute whose show was apparently very offensive]], and raped an actress on a show his mother was also campaigning against to impress the shock jock. The woman did not blame herself for spending so much time on her crusade that she spent almost none with her kids, or the fact that she dehumanized the victim with her SlutShaming campaign. She didn't even [[MamaDidntRaiseNoCriminal blame her son for committing the rape]]. She only blamed the shock jock and thought that she could shoot him and the jury [[EntitledBitch would sympathize with her and acquit her]]. Unfortunately, she was right about the jury.
** In "Quickie" an HIV positive man was giving HIV to as many women as possible. One of the women he infected [[EntitledBitch felt entitled]] to throw acid in his face, despite the fact that the sex, and the non-use of protection were consensual, and the man was already facing criminal charges for criminal distribution of HIV. Like the above example, she assumed the jury would sympathize with her and acquit. This time the charges against her were dismissed so there is no way to know what the jury would have done.



* Exemplified by many of the villains in ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'': Who didn't have someone other than themselves to blame, might be a better question. Even Bruce blames himself for the death of his parents which was beyond his ability to have stopped. Beautifully pointed out by the DA in ''The Animated Series'' episode, "The Trial", when she concludes, "Batman did not create any of you, you created ''him!''" after all of the villains played the trope straight in their testimonies.

** There was one rare time where he realized that it was all his fault Howard didn't get security clearance for his new project, because while he was complaining to the FBI agent about Howard he accidentally lets slip that Howard once crashed the Mars rover. Leonard and Raj take the blame at first because they embarrassed themselves in front of the agent, but Sheldon eventually comes clean that it was his fault. But, he expects Howard to simply accept "I'm sorry" as an appropriate apology for setting his work back two years and doesn't understand why he won't forgive him.

But, he expects Howard to simply accept "I'm sorry" as an appropriate apology for setting his work back two years and doesn't understand why he won't forgive him. Though in this case, Howard is even more guilty of this trope because he puts all the blame on Sheldon for telling the FBI, and not on himself for actually crashing the Mars rover in the first place.
