* A recurring hassle for Mickey in the ''ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse'' before he can put a stop to whatever scheme he's gotten on the track of. Subverted in ''"The Mystery of the Robot Army!"'', where the police believed Mickey without further question but Mickey ruined things by taking a piece of evidence with him, which the villains discovered and took as cue that it was time to clear out before the police arrived. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in ''"The Mystery at Hidden River"'' when Mickey discovers Pete's presence at the crime site early in the story:
--> '''Mickey:''' "Well, I don't have to be clairvoyant to know who's the villain in this mystery! The trick is to get the goods on him!"

* This serves as the reason why Minato hasn't taken down Danzo yet in ''FanFic/CatchYourBreath'', despite knowing about his actions.
-->'''Minato:''' If I had any solid evidence to link Shimura directly to anything, Iíd have ordered the seizure of all of his assets within the village and put him under seal-enforced house arrest until we could have a trial.
* In ''Fanfic/FanFic/DelendaEst'', Harry might know what the dark lord is doing, but he canít tell Orion and Cygnus about it until heís got proof.
* Blue Diamond and Jasper do this on behalf of [[spoiler:Hema]] in ''Fanfic/TheHarvester'' when they are put on trial for being accused of a crime punishable by death, by [[spoiler:bringing out Emerald]] as proof that they were framed.
* Tom says this almost verbatim about how they're going to clear Skinner's name in the fourth volume of ''FanFic/ThePrivateDiaryOfElizabethQuatermain''.




to:

* This becomes the main challenge in ''Film/{{Zodiac}}'' once the heroes become convinced that [[spoiler:Leigh is the Zodiac]]. Despite mountains of evidence -- the windbreakers, the gloves, the wing-walker boots, the knives, the guns, ''Film/TheMostDangerousGame'', the watch - it could all be dismissed in court as circumstantial.




to:

* Aiden and Meg of ''Literature/OnTheRun'' race to prove their parents' innocence when they happen to be arrested for a crime they didn't commit.




to:

* In ''Series/{{Two}}'' Gus must prove that Booth, his EvilTwin, exists in order to prove his innocence.
* The unaired ''Series/WonderWoman2011Pilot'' features this in a plotline. The police can't do anything to Veronica Cale without proof. Wonder Woman goes about this by stabbing a guy in the neck and hospitalizing him, getting negative results, torturing him in a bed, and then getting this confession thrown out because police can't use information gained from coerced testimony. [[SarcasmMode Surely, the world's greatest detective.]]

* ''Fanfic/DreamingOfSunshine'': One of the reasons Shikako doesn't run around changing things willy-nilly is because no one would ever believe her. Instead she painstakingly begins investigating events of interest such as[[spoiler: the Uchiha massacre, especially after being subjected to Tsukuyomi, and Akatsuki]]. This even makes sense, since she KNOWS the information is there and will thus notice things someone else would dismiss.

* A common occurence for Candace in ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', despite the guys not being evil (at least not to us). Their inventions are always in plain sight, but their sister goes through gread ordeals to actually get their mom to see it, resulting in this trope several times by using cameras et.c.

* In ''DeptHeavenApocrypha'', the main characters involved in Nessiah's plot spent months trying to convince Asgard that [[spoiler:Hector had raped him]]. To make things worse, it looks like said character's [[VillainWithGoodPublicity influence]] is going to quash all possibility of a fair and just trial.

* In VideoGame/{{Fallout|1}}, after saving the mayor of a little town from an assassination attempt, he asks you to gather evidence on the person (a local crime boss casino owner) he knows is behind it. You can either side with the crime boss, pretend to be an assassin available for work to make him do an EngineeredPublicConfession thanks to a tape recorder the mayor gave you, or just plain bugging his room.

* ''{{My Teacher Is an Alien}}'' starts off with Susan Simmons finding out that, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin look at the title]]. She knows full well no-one will believe her, and her efforts to try to get evidence are what set the story in motion.
