|~ Ace McDougal|
In all media, A frameup or setup is the act of the hero being framed by the villain or a hero, that is, providing false evidence or false testimony in order to falsely prove someone guilty of a crime.
Sometimes, the person who is framing someone else is the actual perpetrator of the crime. In other cases it is an attempt by law enforcement to get around due process. Motives include getting rid of political dissidents or "correcting" what they see as the court's mistake. Some lawbreakers will try to claim they were framed as a defense strategy.
The protagonist must prove his/her innocence by evidence from the antagonist, which is not an easy task. When doing so, they may create an alter ego/new identity for hiding their identity, or have someone else do the task instead. Anything could be happened when they managed to prove their innocence:
- Discovers the antagonist' conspiracy on something that would threatened the safety of their home/planet/universe/current reality.
- Final battle against the antagonist.

(Darkwing is shocked at what he hears) (Tom Lockjaw: That's right, villain! He is sought by the authorities for a numerous crimes, which includes...arson, burglary, hi-jacking, kidnapping, cat-kicking and spitting on the sidewalk! No wonder the mayor is offering a $1,000,000 reward!)||„|

|“||Why was there another team? (Kittridge: What?) Of IMF agents at the Embassy tonight? (Kittridge: I don't quite follow you.) Well, let's see if you can follow me around the room. The drunk Russians on the embankment, 7 and 8 o'clock. The couple waltzing around me at the Embassy at 9 and 11. The waiter standing behind Hannah, top of the stairs. Bow tie, 12 o'clock. The other IMF team. You're worried about me. Why? (Kittridge: Well, for a little over two years we have been spotting serious blowback in IMF operations, we have a penetration. The other day, we decoded a message on the Internet from a Czech we know as Max.) The arms dealer? (Kittridge: That's right. Max, it seems, had two unique gifts: a capacity for anonymity and for corrupting susceptible agents. This time, he'd gotten to someone on the inside. He'd gotten himself into a position to buy our NOC list. An operation he referred to as Job 314. The job he thought Golitsyn was doing tonight.) The list Golitsyn stole was a decoy? (Kittridge: That's correct. The actual list is secure at Langley. Golitsyn was a lightning rod. He was one of ours.) This whole operation...was a mole hunt. This whole operation was a mole hunt. (Kittridge: Yeah, the mole's deep inside...and, like you said, you survived. I want to show you something, Ethan. (gives Ethan a sheet of paper) Since your father's death, your family's farm has been in receivership. Now, suddenly, they're flushed with over 120 grand in the bank. Your father's illness was supposed to have wiped out that bank account. Dying slowly in America, after all, can be a very expensive proposition. So, why don't we quietly get out on a plane? I can see that you're very upset.) Kittridge, you've never seen me very upset. (Kittridge: All right, Hunt, enough is enough. You have bribed, cajoled and killed, and you've done it using loyalties on the inside. You wanna shake hands with the devil, that's fine with me. I just wanna make sure you do it in hell!) (Ethan, having anticipated this, throws a piece of explosive chewing gum at a nearby fish tank, then braces himself. The gum detonates, destroying the tank and causing water to spill through the restaurant, breaking the windows. Ethan escapes through the windows and runs through the square.)||„|

Well, you know the drill, then, zip it. (Zero: Of course.) You've never heard the word "van Hoytl" in your life. (Zero: Got it.) Okay, let's go. (they walk to the police at the reception.) How may we serve you, gentlemen? Ah, Inspector Henckels! (Henckels: By order of the commissioner of police, Zubrowka Province, I hereby place you under arrest for the murder of Madame Celine Villenueve Desgoffe-und-Taxis.) I knew there was something fishy. We never got the cause of death. She's been murdered, and you think I did it. (runs away) (Henckels: (as he and his men chase Gustave) HEY! STOP!)||„|

She's always being mean to me and always getting me into trouble. (Mr. and Mrs. Turner still refused to listen to their son about Vicky.) (Mrs. Turner, sternly: Oh? Did she turn on your TV? Did she give you this bazooka?) (Mr. Turner: Which I can't fire at the Dinkleberg's house because it's out of ammo?) Well, no. (Mr. Turner, angrily: Then why should we believe anything you say?) (Timmy becomes depressed as Mr. and Mrs. Turner leave the room to go get more ammo for the rocket launcher.) (Mr. Turner: When I get back from the ammo store, YOU ARE IN A LOT OF TROUBLE, YOUNG MAN!) (Mr. Turner angrily leaves.) (Vicky: Wow. I've never seen you so miserable. I should take another picture.) (Vicky takes a picture of Timmy being miserable after his parents yelled at him and gives it to Timmy.) (Vicky: One for you and one for the internet.)

I spoke to his friends, who recorded the scene in the store. Give this to your mother and father and show this to everyone in town.) (He gives Gunther a tape that has footage.) Thank you, Gunther.
