* In ''Literature/TheBalancedSword'', the demon king Kerlamion takes a shot at world domination using a strategy devised by one of his underlings. Said underling has his own objective, and once he's got what he wants from Kerlamion he cheerfully goes his own way and lets Kerlamion's world domination attempt crash and burn.

* In Creator/DavidEddings' [[Literature/TheBelgariad The Malloreon]], the [[DemonLordsAndArchDevils Demon Lords Mordja and Nahaz]] work for [[BigBad Zandramas]] and [[AGodAmI Urvon]] solely so that they can seize the [[ArtifactOfDoom Sardion]] from them in their moment of triumph and then drag them into hell. Urvon's other Dragon, [[EvilSorceror Harakan]] / [[DarkMessiah Mengha]], is also a DragonWithAnAgenda; he conspires with Nahaz to drive Urvon mad and take his place, so that the two of them can rule the world. Since Nahaz is out to betray ''both'' of them, and both of them believe that their magic is enough to keep him under control, he succeeds in being DragonWithAnAgenda ''and'' DragonInChief to two separate characters.

* ''TheWire'': It becomes apparent that [[TheDragon Stringer Bell]] has very different goals from [[BigBad Avon]], wanting to use the money from their drug operation to escape the ghetto and become a legitimate businessman. Avon, meanwhile wants to protect his reputation and power as a gangster, and will even sacrifice smart business decisions to make war on the streets. [[spoiler:This causes tremendous strain between them that builds until they both betray each other -- Avon betraying Stinger to [[ProfessionalKiller Brother Mouzone]], and Stringer informing on Avon to the police. This leads to the downfall of the Barksdale organization]].
* ''{{Series/Salem}}'': The inner dynamics of the coven are quite a complex matter. Mary seems to be their quasi-leader, but everyone from the elders to Tituba and Hale are beginning to doubt her effectiveness after John Alden returns to Salem. And Mary herself, their [[TheDragon Dragon]], has her own ideas about how things should be run.

Terumi wants ToCreateAPlaygroundForEvil 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.

* 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.]]

** 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.
