* Ryouji Kaji of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' is employed by NERV, SEELE, and the Japanese government to spy on and steal information from one another, while at same time pursuing his own goal: discovering the truth about TheConspiracy for himself. While none of the organisations are aware of his personal quest, NERV knows he's a double agent, SEELE suspects it, 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.]]

* [[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.]]
