* By the late 1950s, the Communist Party USA was in heavy decline thanks to McCarthyism. However, the FBI maintained a paranoid obsession with it, and dedicated huge resources to tracking it, to the extent that undercover FBI informants made up as much as 30% of the party, and were crucial to its continued finances. J. Edgar Hoover later admitted that ironically, the FBI's undercover membership bolstering and financing of the CPUSA probably enabled it to avoid collapse.

* In ''Literature/WitchWeek'' by Creator/DianaWynneJones, the protagonist is secretly a person with innate magical talent in a world where such "witches" are feared and hunted. He learns that one of the other students at the school he attends is also secretly a witch. Then another. And another. Also, some of the teachers. (The deputy principal isn't really a miser, he just has no money because he's a witch and the principal is blackmailing him with the threat of exposure. The principal, unbeknownst to him, is also a witch.) In the end it turns out that, as a result of a supernatural event in the 17th century, ''everybody in the world'' is a witch, but they're all hiding it from each other for fear of persecution.

* Part of the point of ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'' is that player characters are dystopian special forces charged with exterminating mutants and secret society conspirators. The players, but not their characters, are fully aware that ''everyone'' in this dystopia is a conspirator and mutant.

* The second ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' made nearly half the cast Cylons. Although there was plenty of evidence to suggest that [[spoiler: Tyrol]] was one, and even that [[spoiler:Tigh OR Ellen was one � which necessitates the other]]. Not to mention precedent of sleeper agents. This was not planned out in advance however, but rather a hasty improvisation by the writers.
