* In ''WesternAnimation/LegendQuest'', BabaYaga is the Dragon to Quetzacoatl, but only because he's enslaved her. While he intends to bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, she has a plan to instead remake the world so witches are in power. [[spoiler: Too bad that's all part of his BatmanGambit]].

* In "VideoGame/TrailsInTheSky", [[spoiler::Fourth lieutenant Lorence seems to be the most capable man in Colonel Richard's intelligence division, but it's later revealed he's from another organization, with different objectives, and already knew that Richard's coup d'etat, which he aided, would fail. His real agenda revolved around breaking a seal in the ruins underneath the Royal Castle]].

->'''Talzo''' It means that if I got my way, I'd have gotten my revenge on Hali for what she did to me and none of you guys would have been involved whatsoever.

* Torg from Webcomic/SluggyFreelance did this professionally for a while. First with the Minion Master, and then with Crushestro [[spoiler:ever since he thought that the Minion Master's sister betrayed him to Hereti-Corp]].
* Ian and Anita in ''ErrantStory'' fit this trope pretty well, with the added little twist that it isn't clear which one is the BigBad and which one is TheDragon.

* The Ebon Dragon of ''''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' serves as this to Malfeas. While he may advise Malfeas or defer to his authority, he constantly seeks to manipulate the Demon King to his own purposes, and endemically betrays him. One of the biggest exmples would have been back when they were the Dragon's Shadow and the Holy Tyrant respectively, and he manipulated him into creating the Unconquered Sun (a deity who could serve as something for the Shadow to oppose, even while he would also subvert the authority of the Tyrant).

Rather than a straight evil character, he tends to be an AntiVillain or an EnigmaticMinion. Contrast with BattleButler and PsychoSupporter, who are often TheDragon but have the same goal as their master. Unlike TheStarscream or the ReliableTraitor, they are usually at least nominally loyal, and their main agenda doesn't outright conflict with that of their boss. If TheDragon and the BigBad are equal or nearly so, you have a BigBadDuumvirate. If they outlive the original BigBad, this type of [[TheDragon Dragon]] may go on to pursue their own motivations and become a DragonAscendant. Compare/contrast with the similar trope PiggybackingOnHitler. The equivalent among the hero's allies is WhoNeedsEnemies. Compare EvilChancellor.
