* [[MagnificentBastard Revolver Ocelot,]] of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' fame, is probably the definition of this; the end of each game has him talking with some puppetmaster or another over the phone, making known his double, triple, and quadruple crosses but never quite explaining what they ''are'' when all is said and done. To wit, he gives an arguably false name to Big Boss at the end of the [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater third game]], is revealed to have been masterminding the entire events of it in the [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPortableOps third-and-a-half-th game]], is apparently both a ManBehindTheMan and double crosser to Liquid Snake in the original ''Metal Gear Solid'' (working for the President), and is seen "working for" the same (ex) President in a conspiracy in ''VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 2|SonsOfLiberty}}'' up until the end, where it turns out he was actually working for a completely ''different'' conspiracy as well as himself.
** Gets even more complex in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'' where he's [[spoiler:an agent of said conspiracy working to destroy it from within.]]
** Though amazingly, he did tell Big Boss [[spoiler:his real name]].
*** Basically, it seems Ocelot worked for [[spoiler:the American CIA before transferring his allegiance to Big Boss. Everything else was him playing multiple sides for Big Boss's sake. Of course, it still fits as being out for himself, because he really respects Big Boss.]]

* Taizou Kirihara in ''Anime/CodeGeass'', the head of one of the "Six Houses of Kyoto", a group of Japanese noble families that still retain power after Japan has been conquered, by supporting Britannian rule. However, Lelouch figures out that he's secretly the head of the Kyoto Group, which gives funds and supplies to resistance groups and offers to help the Black Knights. "A double agent... how cliche." [[spoiler: Kirihara also was behind the coverup of Prime Minister Genbu Kururugi's death at the hands of his 10-year-old son.]]

* Ryouji Kaji of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' is employed by NERV, SEELE, and the Japanese government to spy on and steal information from one another; NERV knows he's a double agent, SEELE suspects, and the National Security Agency is relatively clueless. Eventually, one of the factions [[spoiler:(either SEELE or NERV, per [[WordOfGod Word of Anno]])]] gets sick of his backstabbing [[spoiler:and calls in a hit on him.]]

* Pretty much the entire point of ''Creator/TomClancy's VideoGame/SplinterCell: Double Agent'', although the player can ultimately determine just ''who'' Sam is ultimately working for.

* Taken to truly brain-melting levels in the book [[FilmOfTheBook and film]] ''WhereEaglesDare'': although everybodies' loyalties are eventually revealed to have been constant throughout, the loyalties they claim ping-pong back andforth like crazy. Check under BatmanGambit for details.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Infernal}}'', there's some uncertainty for a while as to whose side Barbara Mitchell is on. She's part of [=EtherLight=], but friends with Lennox (who's now working for the opposition), and gives both of them the impression that she's on their side. She appears to be feeding Lennox information, but then is (unsuccessfully) insistent that Lennox should hand an electronic whatsit over to her without waiting for questions, and when Lennox is later captured, she is congratulated for tricking him. Then she helps him escape... but declines to join him, claiming that she can be of more use pretending to be loyal to [=EtherLight=]. It's only when a soldier catches her transmitting to Lennox, and Lennox subsequently rescues her, that she makes her allegiance (with Lennox) clear to everyone.

* Ryan O'Reily in the HBO series ''{{Oz}}'', who worked rival gang leaders against each other by frequently pledging loyalty to each of them and suggesting opposing plans of attack in order to get them to murder each other. He's rather a self-interested manipulator, using one faction against another to survive.
