* In ''TabletopGame/WarhammerTheEndTimes'' it is revealed that [[spoiler: the High Elves Council of Wizard have been hiding the truth that the Dark Elf King Malakeith is the rightful King of Ulthuan and the High Elves. Having secretly used their magic to protect every Phoenix King who stepped into Asuryan's flames, making it look as though they were blessed by the gods.]]

* The Patriots from ''Franchise/MetalGear''. However [[spoiler:it turns out the Patriots are a fairly modern conspiracy formed in the 1970s which has rather taken on all the trappings of an ancient conspiracy as protective coloration, formed using the missing funds of another organization already on its last legs, The Philosophers, who themselves only dated back to around the beginning of the 20th century.]]\\

* The true nature of the Heaven's Feel in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and ''Literature/FateZero''. Specifically, the goals of the three families Eizenbern, Makiri, and Tohsaka. A subversion in that they never actually finish grail ritual; they've tried it four separate times before Fate/Stay Night and each time it failed for a completely different reason, [[NotSoOmniscientCouncilOfBickering usually due to infighting between factions]]. [[spoiler:It's actually impossible for them to succeed, as the Grail was corrupted beyond repair, thanks to the Einzbern clan summoning [[{{Zoroastrianism}} Angra Mainyu]] during the third war.]]

** ''Series/TorchwoodMiracleDay'' also reveals that some of the events of the 20th and 21st centuries have been manipulated by the Three Families, who made a pact to work together and use their combined influence to work in the shadows for the goal of immortality (after witnessing Jack's resurrection) and world domination. A Creator/BigFinish audioplay reveals that even the Families were manipulated by an even older (and alien) conspiracy called The Committee.

* The graphic novel ''Cryptocracy'' is not only about this, but actually uses the conspiracy as its protagonists. Specifically, it's stated that practically since the dawn of humanity, the Nine Families (all codenamed after Roman gods) have use their advanced technology and control of the world's cryptids to manipulate global politics and society as they see fit for the [[WellIntentionedExtremist greater good]] (for the most part; some just see themselves as superior to non-Family normal humans). Interestingly, they've actually encouraged the myth of TheIlluminati and other such conspiracy theories, making the very nature of this trope so outlandish that only the most fringe of groups will ever even believe in their existence, thus preserving their security.
