** [[DefiedTrope Defied]] by Admiral Fujitora at the end of the Dressrosa arc. After hearing the aforementioned Smoker's frustrations about the Alabasta incident, he ensured that the government could not repeat this for Dressrosa (and give him the credit) by publicly broadcasting the truth (that the Straw Hats and their allies were the ones who brought down the Donquixote Family and saved the kingdom) to all neighboring islands ''before'' reporting the incident to his superior, meaning that the Government has no choice but to publicly acknowledge the real version of the story. Said superior, Fleet Admiral Sakazuki/Akainu, is ''not'' happy.

** In "The Wounded", both Picard and Captain Macet of the Cardassians are eager to stop Captain Ben Maxwell when he goes on the warpath, destroying two Cardassian ships and a science station. Macet believes Maxwell is carrying out a personal vendetta, and Picard eventually concurs, while Maxwell claims the Cardassians are gearing up for war. Maxwell breaks down, surrenders and calls off another attack, but Picard realizes [[TheCloudCuckoolanderWasRight he was right]]. He tells Macet this, but assures him he'll keep it between them so as to preserve peace between their races.

** ''The Cardinal of the Kremlin'': The defection of [[spoiler: Nikolay Borissovich Gerasimov]] is covered up by the American and Soviet governments to avoid political problems with an arms control treaty. Several Soviet characters state that the court-martial of 'Cardinal' might not be possible since he is a war hero.
* Prince Serg in Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Shards of Honor]]''.

* At the end of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', [[TheDragon the Fuhrer]] was credited as having been a major force against the generals supposedly orchestrating the "alchemic experiment". In fact, [[spoiler:he had been one of the driving forces for its completion and had brought the generals into the scheme]]. However, he was far too popular with the people and the evidence against him was lacking.

However, he was far too popular with the people and the evidence against him was lacking. It helped that the rebel forces had ''already'' claimed to be acting in the Fuhrer's name and pinned their own assassination attempt against him (which at the time they believed was successful) on the generals, even before the villainous plot was actually thwarted, even enlisted the unwitting support of the Fuhrer's wife.

*** While the evidence is that the Inquisition doesn't care about that, [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation that may very well be]] because of the Dark Angel's self appointed mission to hunt their traitors. They feel they don't need to bother trying to punishing them for something they're attempting to repent for. They also [[BullyingADragon don't need to piss off]] one of the oldest and strongest chapters, as very little left to really tie to them to Imperium, so they might even [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere decide to go]] [[AchillesInHisTent their own way]] if pushed enough.

* In ''Literature/TheGodsThemselves'', Hallam is guilty of stealing the work of other scientists, ruining at least two careers due to personal grudges, and hindering all attempts to save Earth from a supernova for the sake of prestige. In the end, after the heroes succeed in preventing the supernova, it is mentioned that Hallam will lose most of his influence, but will probably retain some honorable position and won't be prosecuted... exposing the [[FakeUltimateHero greatest genius of humanity]] as a total fraud will cause too much damage to the prestige of science.

* On ''SonsOfAnarchy'' SAMCRO does this all the time. They need to present an unified front to both their allies and enemies so all disputes and betrayals are handled internally and a cover story is presented to the outside world. From the beginning a major plot element is the fact that if the truth about John Teller's death ever came out, it would be impossible to cover up and it would destroy the club.
