* In ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'', O'Brien is a prominent member of the Inner Party (essentially government top brass), but Winston gets the gut feeling that he's not as loyal to the Party as he should be. About midway through the novel, O'Brien seemingly confirms Winston's suspicion when he reveals himself to be a member of [[LaResistance the Brotherhood]] and brings Winston into the fold. But then even later, it turns out that O'Brien was not only loyal to the Party all along, but was also the mastermind behind Winston's capture by the Thought Police and would eventually be the one to carry out Winston's MindRape.

* Kaji is this ''Fanfic/NeonMetathesisEvangelion'' as much as in [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion canon]]. He works as inspector for the U.N., he works for Gendo, he works for the Japanese Ministry of the Interior, and at times also against all of those. Recently, he has even begun working for Kaworu in exchange for information. He already has pissed off or will piss off SEELE, Gendo and the JSSDF.

* [[spoiler:Tsuchimikado Motoharu]] from ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' is [[spoiler:the only magician-esper hybrid]] and is constantly switching between working for Aleister Crowley (and Academy City's dark side) and Necessarius. It's even hinted that he works for even more covert organizations, but [[ReliableTraitor he's being let off the hook]] for the time being. The best part is that everyone knows he's got multiple agendas and nobody knows who he really works for... but because of this he makes an excellent neutral middleman between all these organizations so he's left alone for the most part.

** Several spies gave intelligence that led Hitler to conclude that Normandy being the target was a deception and that Calais, located at the shortest distance across the Channel and also closer to targets in Germany itself, was the real target (one of the agents truthfully reported that Normandy was the target, but because his particular information stream to this point [[CryingWolf had been verified lies]] [[CassandraTruth the Germans took it as further evidence of a Calais landing]]). The resulting intelligence caused Hitler to keep his armored reserves concentrated at Calais until it was too late for the potential reserves to do anything meaningful. [[RefugeInAudacity These agents were notified by radio that they had been awarded the Iron Cross their services to Germany.]]

* {{Trigun}}: Manga version of [[SexyPriest Nicholas D. Wolfwood]]. Part of every major faction in the series and [[MurderInc at least one minor one]]. Shot his [[EvilMentor teacher]] to join the [[CarnivalOfKillers Gung Ho Guns]] to subvert [[BigBad Knives']] plans for TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, but also manipulated TheHero on behalf of the villains before and even after becoming emotionally invested in his well-being. Then turned on them after [[TheHero Vash]] was defeated and captured, and staged a jail break. [[DyingMomentOfAwesome Finally]] abandons everyone in favor of his primary allegiance: the kids at the orphanage where he spent the [[CrapsackWorld closest thing to]] a happy bit of his childhood.

* Aruka Schild of Needless. She's introduced as a member of the resistance against Arklight. She appears to betray them, but was in fact working for Arklight as a double agent to obtain a data chip their leader possessed. When she appears again she makes several attempts to kill her brother Cruz, but mind bogglingly, also gives him help in secret, even going so far as to kill her own subordinates. Cruz is thoroughly confused by her contradictory actions. In their final encounter, Aruka reveals SHE was the one who hid the data chips in the first place, putting one in Cruz's head during a surgery he was having. Turns out all her murder attempts on her brother were so she wouldn't blow her cover while Arklight was watching and the help she gave in secret was to get Cruz, and the chip, as far away from harm and Arklight as possible. Sadly she is killed by Arklight as a traitor before she can heel-face turn, and the author never goes into further depth about her life of espionage and intrigue. How Aruka ended up under Arklight's thumb and what she was trying to accomplish would make a darn interesting spin-off story.

* In Fanfic/HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality Blaise Zabini is a ''[[UpToEleven quintuple]]'' agent. Who got [[LaserGuidedAmnesia Memory Charmed]] into thinking he's a quadruple agent. In a game with three sides. It was explicitly shown that the only reason he never became a sextuple agent was because he couldn't find anyone else to sell out to. He later makes this work for him: now that he's cultured his particular image, at a time when Slytherin House is divided in twain, with battle lines drawn, he sits ''in the middle.''

* During the Second World War, Britain had great success (in fact, 100% success) at detecting German spies and either imprisoning/executing them, or turning them into double agents. The story goes that the Germans, suspecting many of their spies had been turned, tried a counter: they instructed one of their spies to (on arrival) go to British intelligence and admit to being a German spy and to offer to be a double agent. This way, they'd find out what the British told double agents to say, while the spy would pass their real observations on by alternate means. This would have been a triple agent (i.e. pretending to be a double agent.) However, on arrival the spy went to British intelligence as planned, but also told them about the triple agent plan, so the British could control both streams of information - hence he was a quadruple agent.
** One such spy gave intelligence that lead Hitler to conclude that Normandy was a practice invasion. The resulting intelligence caused Hitler to keep his forces concentrated at Calix until it was too late for the potential reserves to do anything meaningful. [[RefugeInAudacity He was awarded the Iron Cross for his service to Germany.]]
