* In TadWilliams' ''Literature/{{Otherland}}'', John Dread is this to CorruptCorporateExecutive Felix Jongleur. Jongleur's EvilPlan is focused on [[ImmortalitySeeker living forever]], and he's trained the AxCrazy SerialKiller Dread as a PsychoForHire to go after his physical opponents. Dread is far, far more ambitions than Jongleur realizes, however, and is simply biding his time, waiting for a moment of weakness to take over. And he does indeed, deposing Jongleur as master of Otherland and embarking on a [[AGodAmI godlike orgy]] of [[SugarApocalypse virtual destruction]].

* From ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta 2}}'' [[spoiler:Loptr pulled Father Balder (the BigBad from the [[{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}} first game]]) [[TimeTravel through time]] to serve him. Loptr wants to claim the 'Eyes of the World' for his own and Loki, the good half of his soul, stands in his way. Balder, meanwhile, only wants to kill Loki because he thinks Loki killed his wife, Rosa (it was actually Loptr from 500 years ago), and has no interest in any of Loptr's goals otherwise.]]

There's something about this in the TV Tropes Drinking Game. It's too bad I'm underage.
* Torg from Webcomic/SluggyFreelance seems to be doing this professionally now. First with the Minion Master, and now with Crushestro [[spoiler:ever since he found out that the Minion Master's sister betrayed him to Hereti-Corp]].

Fixed some poor formatting and a word choice which implies a spoiler but can't be edited out. #presenttense
** Also from [=OotS=], Sabine was Nale's Dragon. However, she's also covertly working for [[spoiler:The Inter-Fiend Cooperation Commission]]. Luckily for Nale, her agenda involved helping him advance his agenda. [[spoiler:Also, it's implied in the Western Continent arc that her loyalty to Nale is actually greater than her loyalty to the IFCC, though she still works for them.]] And getting [[UnholyMatrimony lots of hot hot sex from him.]] Though, considering [[HornyDevils what she is]], that last part goes without saying.

* VideoGame/{{Blazblue}}: All of [[spoiler: Izanami's]] direct subordinates have the same goal as their boss but have their own reasons for working for her, none of which seem to coincide with her own goals of "creating a world of death". Terumi wants ToCreateAPlaygroundOfEvil because he [[ForTheEvulz finds misery interesting.]] Relius wants to be [[AGodAmI the god of a perfect world]] to satiate [[ForScience his scientific curiosity.]] And Phantom/[[spoiler: Nine]] wants revenge against the first two for using her for their plans in the first place.

* [[spoiler:Dark Zero]] from ''{{Kurohime}}''. Rather than follow the BigBad Yashahime's plan and rule the universe, he just wants to exterminate humanity. * From ''PokemonSpecial'', [[spoiler:Sird to Giovanni]]. Turns out she was TheDragon from ''another'' villainous team; she was actually working undercover as TheMole to learn more about various Pokémon from space.

* Ichiki from ''NabariNoOu'' plays TheDragon to Hattori before she [[spoiler:betrays him for Fuuma]]. It appears that she'd been planning to [[spoiler:dispose of Hattori all along, and was just waiting for him to outlive his usefulness]].

* In ''StarWars: VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed'', it is revealed that Darth Vader has been Palpatine's Dragon with an Agenda much earlier than the "I am Your Father" Scene in Episode V mentioned under Film. Vader tries pulling off a similar speech to the young Starkiller, but proves unable to sway him.

* [[TheBrute Astaroth]] in the ''SoulSeries'', [[AllThereInTheManual according to the backstory]]. * In ''SuikodenIII'', you eventually learn [[spoiler:[[TheChessmaster Albert Silverberg]] orchestrated everything just to prove his skill as a strategist. He then casually derails it and walks away, likely leaving many players [[KarmaHoudini aching for a chance to settle the score]]. Or at least wipe that not-quite-smile off his face.]]

* During ComicBook/DarkReign, Norman Osborn put together a cabal of the best villains to help him hold onto power. Unfortunately, he ran into this trope: Doctor Doom was only in it to get back control of Latveria after his last... foray against the Avengers, SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} was in it for as long as it amused him (and later, as part of a plan to force Asgard to leave Midgard space), ComicBook/EmmaFrost was only there because she was desperate to save the mutants, and Namor was only there because he needed the political clout to rebuild Atlantis (and support Emma, who he wanted to get back together with). Later he adds Taskmaster to the group, who's only really there for the money, and unknown to Osborn, had previously helped Deadpool mess with Norman's plans.

*** [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0830.html As it turns out]], [[spoiler:Redcloak's plan doesn't help Xykon's own goals ''at all'', and Xykon is ultimately just Redcloak's UnwittingPawn.Though some of Xykons dialogue(e.g Don't confuse not caring with not knowing") hints that even if he does know that Redcloak doesn't *really* serve him he wont bother to let on until Redcloak actually acts against him.]]
