* Vincent from ''SilentHill3'' at first seems to be in league with BigBad Claudia, sharing her background and occult beliefs and meeting with her a few times throughout the game, while also making it clear to the heroine Heather that he has his own hidden agenda. Later it turns out that [[spoiler:he's working against Claudia and trying to save the world, though he's doing it for entirely selfish and amoral reasons]].

** He does the same thing in ''TransformersCybertron'', even claiming to be an Autobot at one point for absolutely no clear reason. He is enigmatically joined by Soundwave about two thirds of the way through the series, who doesn't appear to be on anyone's side at all.

* Sideways plays one of these in ''TransformersArmada''. He does so many sneaky evil laughs and sinister remarks while still being casually friendly with everyone that it's obvious he's TheMole, [[spoiler: for Unicron, surprisingly enough.]]

* In the ''TabletopGames/{{Exalted}}'' universe, the mysterious Green Lady is a powerful and ancient Sidereal Exalted who apparently betrayed Heaven and now serves no less than ''three'' different Deathlords, [[DoubleReverseQuadrupleAgent convincing each of them that she is their loyal minion and spying on the other two]]. If your character meets her in game she will certainly embody this trope to perfection. [[spoiler:Which is normal since she is actually still working for Heaven but using an insanely dangerous MemoryGambit in order to study the Deathlords and learn how to destroy them.]]

* In ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'', Dimentio is the only one of [[BigBad Count Bleck]]'s minions who volunteered on his own to work under Bleck. As if this weren't shady enough, he's the only villain who doesn't seem interested in actually ''stopping'' the heroes, but when he does finally decide to get the job done he's [[WhamEpisode shockingly ruthless]] [[OneHitKill and effective at it]]. Or at least, he would be, if doing that wasn't exactly what the heroes needed in order for them to get the last Pure Heart. In fact, he never seems to do anything that really helps the Count... [[spoiler:It turns out that his plan all along was to have the heroes defeat Count Bleck, exhausting their own MacGuffins in the process and leaving Dimentio in sole control of the DoomsdayDevice.]]

* ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'' has Blankman, the dark wizard who Jade hires to serve as the [[TheSyndicate Shadow Hand's]] foreman. We know next to nothing about him (not even his real name), and when he finally gets some focus in a chapter, it just raises more questions and makes him seem more mysterious.

In later chapters, Hak Foo and even Jade herself are starting to realize just how much of an unknown factor he is in the grand scheme of things.

** [[NoNameGiven The Spaniard]] in ''On Stranger Tides'' is this to the King of Spain; he's the first of the three main factions to set out after the Fountain of Youth, but we see him by far the least and its never quite clear exactly what he wants with it. [[spoiler: Turns out, he's been sent by the King to destroy the Fountain, which the Spanish see as blasphemous]].

* The "Mystery Man" from ''LostHighWay'' has no clear goals or motivation, looks somewhat strange, and only shows obvious threatening behavior towards the end of the movie. His role in the movie is, along with everything else in it, open to interpretation... It ''is'' a David Lynch film, after all.

* Phalse in ''[[ForgottenRealms Azure Bonds]]'' novel. Until the Final Showdown he was the least transparent of villains, representing unknown force with unknown motivation and did not anything serious save recruiting TheMole. Gradually proved to be both smartest and creepiest participant of the conspiracy, despite hard competition (in either quality) with his partners [[spoiler: that is, hysterically vicious VainSorceress, [[DemBones lich]], band of vengeful killers-thieves and ancient evil god.]]

* ''Series/{{Continuum}}'': This show is in love with this trope.

to:

* ''Series/{{Continuum}}'': This show is in love with this trope. For example, the main group of time-travelling villains, Liber8, has (unsurprisingly) eight members, of whom three are pursuing their own hidden agendas -- one is part of an ancient conspiracy to protect history, one has been sent back by their arch-enemy to change his past, and one is just a ruthless opportunist who, over the course of the show, [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder betrays every other character at least once]].

* Neopolitan from {{WebAnimation/RWBY}} serves as this to Roman Torchwick, who also happens to be a much more capable fighter than he is. A lot of mystery surrounds her and because she's mainly mute, its hard to see why she aids the White Fang besides being the [[SilentAntagonist silent antagonist]].
