* ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise:'' The Vulcan arc of season 4 had the Vulcan High Command justify their actions by claiming the Syrannites were terrorists who bombed Earth's embassy and then that Andoria was planning a strike against them using Xindi technology (with V'Las, the leader, hiding the fact that Archer ''destroyed'' the equipment Shran tried to steal). But then it turns out [[spoiler:V'Las was the one with the conspiracy, planting false evidence after arranging the bombing himself so he had an excuse to fight Andoria and also wipe out the Syrannites so he could keep Surak's true teachings hidden... all so he could bring about the reunification of Vulcan and Romulus]].

* Michael Barkun, a political scientist who studies conspiracy theories, came up with three classifications for such in his book ''A Culture of Conspiracy''. The first, the event conspiracy, attempts to explain lone, one-off events (e.g. the 9/11 attacks, [[WhoShotJFK the JFK assassination]]), while the second, the systemic conspiracy, posits the existence of a shadowy organization manipulating events from behind the scenes (e.g. the Freemasons, the military-industrial complex). The third, the super-conspiracy, is this trope in a nutshell, claiming that this secret organization and its lackeys and puppets control the entire world through a series of interlocking conspiracies.

* A particularly hilarious one appears in ''{{ComicBook/Hellblazer}}'': John explains to an increasingly terrified journalist that the British royal family are in fact reptiles born of matings between humans and snake-gods, in service to TheGreys, Princess Diana was killed so the public wouldn't find out about the BodyHorror needed to make her a breeder for reptile babies, and JFK arranged to commit suicide because he woke up to see his wife having sex with one of the snake-men and showing every sign of enjoyment. As John goes to the bathroom before beginning part 2, a gunshot is heard, and blood flows from a stall, scaring the journalist witless. [[spoiler:John was asked to get the journalist away from the palace before he could uncover a much more mundane drugs and prostitution ring, which he did by baiting the guy with high-grade BS and faking his execution.]]
