Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/FatherBrown'': In "The Flower of the Fairway", someone attempts to set up an alibi for the murderer by establishing a fake gunshot. They do this by [[spoiler:tying a firework to golf ball and driving it over the clubhouse]]. This not only makes it appear the murder happened later than it did, but obfuscates the method because [[spoiler:the victim was not shot but stabbed through the throat by a broken golf club]].

* ''Series/{{Columbo}}'': The murderer in "Candidate for Crime" fires a shot to put a hole in the window and the wall. He later uses a firecracker to fake a gunshot to make it look like someone had just tried to shoot him. Too bad for him [[spoiler:Columbo had inspected the room in the interim, found the bullet and removed it from the wall]].

* ''Zeppelin'' (1971). During WW1 a FakeDefector is boarding a boat so he can be smuggled to Germany when a sniper gives him OnlyAFleshWound so his cover will be more convincing. Apparently [[WithFriendsLikeThese he hadn't been informed of this aspect of the plan]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', Stan makes Roger, who to this point has been impersonating a foreign dictator, undergo a fake assassination as the treaty he signed makes said dictator no longer useful to the US (and, thanks to Stan, the real dictator was already dead). However, tired of being used by Stan, Roger immediately subverts it by getting right back up after his "assassination" in full view of everyone, after which he takes over the country proper.

* In an episode of ''{{Trigun}}'', Vash (known for his ''very'' strict policy against killing anyone or anything) is hired to kill two stowaway children for a very high price. He shoots the children without batting an eye and takes the money. Then he gives it to the kids after they get up from being hit with rubber bullets.

* Used in ''Radio/TheLivesOfHarryLime'' episode "Horse Play". This episode uses almost exactly the same plot as ''TheSting'' but predates it by twenty years. Both are based on the scenario described in the non-fiction book ''The Big Con''.
