** Miles Vorkosigan pulls off faking this in ''The Warrior's Apprentice'' as part of an IndyPloy - or rather, the latest in a long string of Indy Ploys.
** In ''Memory'', the reader is introduced to the position of Imperial Auditor, a troubleshooter answerable only to the Emperor with vast powers to investigate situations beyond what's addressed by normal channels, in a combination of this trope and its sister trope InternalAffairs. Miles is assigned the position to investigate an unusual attack on [=ImpSec's=] security chief, and thinks he's killing time waiting for field agents to report on off-planet leads. As it happens, after a few days of snooping, he finds what he needs to crack the case in the basement of [=ImpSec=] HQ.

* In the Marine Corps novels by W.E.B. Griffin, the Marines have come to the conclusion that people of this type will never go away until they find something to complain about. So whenever they suspect that an Inspector is coming, they make sure there are no major problems, and then deliberately leave a handful of obvious minor problems for the Inspector to find so that he will find them, report the insignificant infractions, and then leave so they can get back to work.

* In the ''Franchise/DragonAge'', this has, for the longest time, been the function of the Lord-Seeker, the leader of the Seekers of Truth, in regards to the Templar Order and the Circle of Magi. In ''Literature/{{Asunder}}'', Lord-Seeker Lambert van Reeves removes the Templar Knight-Commander of Val Royeaux from office and assumes direct command of the Order in response to a Circle mage attempting to assassinate the [[ThePope Divine]]--and things only go downhill from there. Depending on your influence on Cassandra Pentaghast in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', Lord-Seeker's role may be reformed after 9:41 Dragon, however.

* Inquisitors in Warhammer40K are more concerned with rooting out heretics, xenos-sympathizers and other undesirables, so usually it's [[ObstructiveBureaucrat Administratum drones]] that look for this kind of misuse. The Imperial Guardsman's Uplifting Primer suggests that they have the power to execute soldiers found lacking in maintaining equipment perfectly clean.
