* A bizarre example happened on ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' where Launchpad was trying to convince everyone in Duckberg ''not'' that he hadn't done a bad thing, but that he wasn't doing ''good'' things. After he was mistaken for Gizmoduck, things started to get out of hand, so he went on live TV to tell everyone he wasn't Gizmoduck; but accidentally said the command word for Felton's armor, while his mother, who was keeping it in her trailer, was watching the broadcast. After the armor flew all the way across town and affixed itself to Lauchpad in the middle of his denial, it kind of spoiled it. (Fortunately - or unfortunately, depending on your point of view - people realized he wasn't Gizmoduck after he wrecked half the city in a vain attempt to control the suit.)

* In the ''Series/StarTrekNextGeneration'' episode "Aquiel," the title character is accused of murdering her superior officer on an isolated communications outpost, but claims that he's the one who attacked her. Her personnel records describe her as belligerent and insubordinate, while he was a model officer, her own personal logs are dominated by her dislike of him, she erased some of ''his'' because he was planning to formally reprimand her, and she tried to flee the ''Enterprise'' when she realized suspicion was falling on her. [[spoiler:As it turns out the murder was done by an alien life form who had absorbed the guy and attacked when it tried to jump bodies to her.]]

* In ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'', aspiring wizard Shouta attempts to summon a demon as a {{Familiar}}, but gets Lucoa, who agrees to be his familiar. Shouta thinks that she's a succubus. Lucoa tries to correct him that she's a dragon in human form, but he won't believe her because she keeps shamelessly wearing revealing clothes and trying to seduce him.

* ''Franchise/Kingdom Hearts'''s BigBad, Master Xehanort, wants to create BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil for the forces of Light and Darkness... so he [[GambitRoulette somehow orchestrates a multi-game]] ComplexityAddiction that ends up causing DarkIsEvil suffering to countless people, Worlds, etc., thus ultimately reinforcing the very BlackAndWhiteMorality he obsessively opposes. [[SarcasmMode ...Success!]]

For added ironic flavor, the newly-criminal character may be busted just as the others come around and start to believe their original claim--giving the [[JadeColoredGlasses cynic]] of the group something to [[DeadpanSnarker snark]] about--''"Well, I guess you're right ,chumps, they really'' aren't ''a thief... they're just a'' [[GraveRobbing graverobber]].''"''
