* Alex Jowski of Geek Juice Media once had sex with a homeless girl(because he was drunk). Also, when he was 17, he set up a meeting between an elderly pedophile and a young(about the same age as him) gay guy, then called some of his friends to watch the scene unfold with him. His site-mates often joke about him having hostages in his basement, but someone knowing his reputation wouldn't be blamed too harshly for thinking it's not a joke.

* Over the course of ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'', [[TokenEvilTeammate Whirl]] acts so bizarre and outrageous that the rest of the crew stops being able to tell whether or not any act he claims to have done or opinion he expresses is for real. Any accusation or claim about him is given treated as semi-plausible, no matter how ridiculous, simply because it's Whirl. It doesn't help that Whirl also has [[EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor a really warped sense of humor]].

* ''FanFic/OldManHenderson'' shows how this trope can be weaponized in tabletop games; the creator of the titular character gave him a [[ExpansionPackPast ridiculously thorough]] [[DoorStopper 300-something page backstory]] to justify Henderson having an absurd GameBreaker skill set. His skills were so outrageous and his backstory so impenetrable that the DM and other players began believing anything the creator made up about Henderson, figuring that the justification was probably buried somewhere in the backstory. Henderson ended using this to hijack a helicopter during a key moment; he had zero skill or experience with flying and should've died in the attempt, but the DM was too exasperated to read anymore of Henderson's character sheet and just let it happen.

** PlayedForDrama with Prowl; [[spoiler: when Bombshell mind controls him and forces him to act as a Decepticon agent, nobody sees his sudden ruthless {{Jerkass}} behavior as suspicious. Prowl was already a pretty shifty and manipulative guy, so they were willing to believe, however subconsciously, that Prowl would really commit crimes for utterly inscrutable reasons and generally be an obnoxious jerk. When he's freed from Bombshell's control, Prowl is understandably disturbed that his supposed friends saw things like emotional manipulation or covering up politically inconvenient crimes as normal behavior for him.]]

* In ''TabletopGame/UnhallowedMetropolis'', the only reliable way to cultivate a ControversyProofImage is to become a BlackSheep. After this point, more scandals aren't going to damage your reputation any.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': Eric Cartman is the poster child for this trope in a fictional setting starting with season 5. Acknowledged and played with in a twisted manner in season 15's "1%".

* Invoked by Creator/BobChipman in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZXopZjBYo8 his review]] of ''Film/TransformersTheLastKnight'', where, due to the fact that he'd run out of ways to criticize these films without repeating himself from his reviews of [[Film/TransformersFilmSeries the prior four films]], he simply presented most of the review as a list of twenty things that [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer actually happened in this movie]]. One of them is not like the others.
-->14. There's an extended comedy sequence where Crosshairs loses his testosterone regulation cog and reverts to exaggerated effeminate mannerisms, which plays out as background slapstick during an unnecessarily long foreground discussion of what gender differentiation even means for the Transformers in the first place, and pays off in a [[UnfortunateImplications deeply uncomfortable]] [[DudeNotFunny joke]] about "hybrid cars".\\
15. I just made that last one up, but admit it, you didn't know that for sure.

* The ''entire genre'' of VisualKei (especially in its original iteration of Visual Shock) was and is about ''intentionally entering this'' with one's persona, one's band's image, and sometimes even one's own personal life. Some artists have been ''especially'' good at it (although, sadly, some of the best at it became so ''due'' to mental health or alcohol and drug problems...)

* By the time of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'', the prosecutors have realized that four games worth of already insane acts have put them in this situation via in-universe DarknessInducedAudienceApathy. As a result, they can do even more crazy stuff to win because nobody cares at that point.
