* Deliberately invoked in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel ''Discworld/{{Jingo}}'' where a vast amount of stereoypical evidence implicating Klatch in a murder is planted, as the Klatchian ambassador realizes this will cause Sam Vimes to look everywhere except Klatch for the killers. It works flawlessly on Vimes because he's (justifiably) cynical about his own people; it fails to work on his Klatchian opposite number, as ''he's'' (justifiably) cynical about ''his'' own people...

** ''VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}}'': The 3rd case in the first game looks so damning that one character starts calling it a setup before the trial has begun.
** ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganronpa2'': The second case in the second game, meanwhile, ends up making the patsy an impossibility as far as suspects go because of all the inconsistencies in her characterization with the evidence left behind.

begun. A whole story is spun where the frame target wears a ridiculous and out-of-character cardboard costume, attacks people with progressively lethal weapons, runs into a dead end and vanishes, and swiftly relocates a corpse when it is left alone for only a minute. And this is all while ''completely'' escaping detection from the entire cast, only to wind up trapped inside a locker later on.
** ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganronpa2'': The second case in the second game, meanwhile, ends up making the patsy an impossibility as far as suspects go because of all the inconsistencies in her characterization with the evidence left behind. The blood soaked corpse was moved to block a door (forcing the scapegoat to leave behind footprints through sand), and yet the scapegoat didn't have any blood on their clothing or body. Also, the culprit tried to leave behind the scapegoat's TrademarkFavoriteFood at the scene of the crime, but they got the details wrong and chose a variant that the scapegoat doesn't eat.

* In one ''Five Finder-Outers'' book by EnidBlyton, the kids do this deliberately to confuse the [[PoliceAreUseless policeman]]. He seems to be fooled only for a while, though.

* Discussed in Anthony Boucher's ''The Case of the Baker Street Irregulars''. When someone questions why Harrison Ridgely is so ready to call attention to anything that makes him look guilty, the police officer sighs "It's an old trick to make the case against yourself so black an investigator will automatically disregard it. Trouble is, it so seldom works."

* ''{{Series/Shooter}}'': Swagger tries to use this as evidence he didn't commit the assassination, as he'd never have left that much evidence.
