* 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.

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', [[spoiler:Martin]] is this, playing the Red Court and the Fellowship of Saint Giles for fools. He was originally [[spoiler:loyal to the Court]] but gradually grew disgusted with them and wanted them gone. He's ultimately able to pull off a scheme that results in [[spoiler:the entire Court being wiped out, but not before he sold out the Fellowship as part of the scheme.]]

* Gajeel of ''Manga/FairyTail'' used to be one between Fairy Tail and Raven Tail, though loyal to Fairy Tail. In what could be considered an example of TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot, the information he gets from Raven Tail never really comes to use, as before Fairy Tail can find Raven Tail and stop them in their tracks, fate has them meet in the Grand Magic Games. Laxus defeats them, and they realize that Gajeel was really loyal to Fairy Tail all along, making his agent status obsolete. However, they only make a blink-and-you-miss-it comment about it, and what Gajeel did and found out as a double agent is never expanded on.
