* In VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}}, [[spoiler: Genocider Syo is both a SerialKiller ''and'' Touko Fukawa's SplitPersonality]]. However [[spoiler: she did '''not''' muder Chihiro Fujisaki and then creepily crucify their lifeless body, despite how the evidence ''does'' point out at her. It ultimately turns out that it was Togami's doing, as he knows who the real killer is but has an ulterior motive.]] It gets lamsphaded by Ishimaru.

* In ''Videogame/KidIcarusUprising'', [[spoiler:Hades]] does this twice in the story, stating that he had nothing to do with the [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Aurum]] (and he even [[EnemyMine joins in on the fight against them]]) and later showing up when Pit is dealing with the [[spoiler:Chaos Kin]] just to say that he also had nothing to do with this as even he had no way of controlling it.

* At one point during the main quest of VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim, [[spoiler:Delphine]] suspects the [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Thal]][[ANaziByAnyOtherName mor]] are behind the recent reappearance of dragons. In search of information, the Dragonborn infiltrates a party being held by Thalmor diplomats, causes a good bit of havoc and death and finds that no, the Thalmor aren't responsible at all, and are in fact conducting their own investigation to see what's going on (and to find out if someone's trying to use the dragons against ''them'').

* The animatronics throughout the ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' series act homicidal due to the actions of the [[SerialKiller Purple]] [[WouldHurtAChild Man]], either in part or (as is the case with [[spoiler:Springtrap from the [[Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3 third game]]]]) in whole. This isn't the case with the [[Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4 fourth game's]] Nightmare animatronics - how they came to be had nothing to do with anything he did.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}: The Game'', Bender says this when they find the ship badly damaged. It turns out that [[spoiler:[[StableTimeLoop he (as well as Fry and Leela) ''did'' do it]].]]

* Franchise/{{Kirby}} often goes after King Dedede for whatever evil plot is going on, whether or not Dedede had anything to do with it. Indeed, in '''most''' games, he either '''doesn't''' have anything to do with it, is trying to '''fix''' it, or is being controlled by another entity, bringing up the question of why Kirby is so insistent that everything is his fault. Dedede is the champion of this trope. Let's look at the list of times he's the actual villain:

** ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'' "Spring Breeze" (1996), a remake of Kirby's Dream Land. Okay, well he obviously has to be causing trouble again. And he does, eventually, in... ** ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar Ultra'' "Revenge of the King" ('''2008'''), ''another'' remake of Kirby's Dream Land. And his defeat is unambiguously played as a tragedy.

* In the opening FMV of the {{Nintendo 64}} version of ''VideoGame/MarioTennis'', when Bowser arrives at the court, the other participants are understandably worried when he arrives, as they think he's planning to attack the tennis arena. However, instead, Bowser just [[GoKartingWithBowser challenges Mario to the tournament in a friendly fashion]] when he actually approaches Mario.

* In ''{{Avernum}}'' ''3'', your party is trying to figure out who created the plagues of monster that are attacking TheEmpire. You can question the dragons, the Vahnatai, and the sorceress Erika, all of whom have grudges against the Empire and the means to create the monsters, but they all insist that while they hate the Empire with a passion, they have nothing to do with this. [[spoiler:The vahnatai are lying]].

* In ''VideoGame/StarFox Assault'', after Pigma steals the memory core, the Star Fox team fights Star Wolf in the Sargasso Space Zone because they think that they were involved in Pigma's recent theft and want them to hand him over. However, after the fight, Wolf reveals that not only were they ''not'' involved in Pigma's theft, but they actually kicked Pigma out of Star Wolf long beforehand, and went as far as to order a shoot on sight command in regards to Pigma should he ever attempt to arrive at the Sargasso Space Zone. They do nonetheless give intel on where he is most likely at, however.

* Sephiroth laughs at your party in VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII when you get attacked by a dragon in the temple of the ancients and think that he is responsible for it.

Added DiffLines:
*** Also, The Illusive Man surprisingly wasn't responsible for what happened to Subject Zero/Jack, as you learn from the security logs on Pragia that the staff were hiding their actions from The Illusive Man, going outside their parameters, and feared what he would do if he found out.
