* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'': Kirito does this early on, when many players are angry at the beta testers for hoarding their knowledge, and it looks like persecution of beta testers in general (even those who are genuinely trying to help) is going to become a thing. Kirito, a beta tester himself, acts like a JerkAss glory hound and gets labelled a "Beater" ('''B'''eta Tester + Ch'''eater'''), thereby creating a new category and getting people to focus their anger on players who take advantage of other players, rather than on beta testers in general.

* In [[TheDresdenFiles Turn Coat]] [[spoiler:Warden Donald Morgan]] allows everyone to [[spoiler:blame him as a lone psychotic murderer and traitor to the White Council]] because [[spoiler:the real murderer was his teacher and (unrequited) beloved, Warden Commander Luccio, who has been put under MindControl by the real traitor. In other words, he took all blame to save the woman he loved and simultaneously to save the image of the Wardens and the entire White Council. And then he died]].
* In the last book of the ''SignOfSeven'' trilogy by Nora Roberts, one of the main character's father is a reformed alcoholic/abusive father. (As in, now that he's not drunk, he's truly repentant that he used to beat his son.) Through the trilogy, his son rejects any and all of his father's attempts for a reconciliation or forgiveness, until the end when [[spoiler: he takes down a magically influenced family man with a shotgun. The family man would have shot up the small town's bowling alley where 90% of the kids and teens hang. The ex-abusive father, dying from his wounds, tells them to blame it on him, because everyone would believe he did it and the family man was influenced by ghost demon evil...ness.]]

* Lord Genome in ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' transforms from a valiant Spiral Warrior into a hated, oppressive ruler of the planet, wiping out entire human villages with his Beastmen legions. It is only after his death that the heroes learn that he did all that to preserve the human race, hoping that fear of him and his armies would keep humans in their holes. He made one critical mistake: hatred of him eventually grew stronger...

* In ''WebComic/OnePunchMan'', Saitama does this in response to a random civilian ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike. After a bunch of heroes got crushed trying to defeat the Undersea King, and Saitama finishes him in [[OneHitKill his usual manner]], Saitama acts like a glory hound who came in at the last minute to take everyone else's credit, getting the civilians' ire focused on him and keeping it off the other heroes (who, though they failed, were risking their lives to save those people).
