** The ep "Op FUGITIVE" is mistakenly thought of as one by many. Details under WhatHappenedToTheMouse. "Operation: M.A.U.R.I.C.E." is a genuine one, with the FakeDefector being a chicken-pox researcher kidnapped by Cree. As the quotes page reveals, Chad (Numbah 274) was this all along in "Operation T.R.E.A.T.Y.", [[GoodIsNotNice not that it made him any less of a jerk]].
** "Operation: U.N.D.E.R.C.O.V.E.R." has Lenny of the Delightful Children defect to the KND to supply them with information. Of course it's revealed he is actually a FakeDefector who did this to steal some valuable intel from the KND. THEN it's revealed the KND knew from the start he was this, and the "intel" he stole was actually a bomb that blows their [[ItMakesSenseInContext coffee-drilling oil rig]] to smithereens.

* As of ''[[Literature/WheelOfTime The Gathering Storm]]'', [[spoiler:Verin]] is revealed to be one of these, having [[spoiler:joined the Black Ajah to save herself, then studied it and eventually brought it down from within. Considering how well she fooled her fellow Blacks, and the LoopholeAbuse she used to be able to divulge all (which also entailed a HeroicSacrifice),it's tempting to call her a [[MagnificentBastard Magnificent Bitch]] despite still being one of the Heroes. She's certainly mistress of ThePlan.]]

** [[spoiler:Uryu Ishida]] pretends to join the Vandenreich in an attempt to assassinate their leader, Yhwach. However, [[GenreSavvy Yhwach]] sees through the ploy immediately and [[KickedUpstairs appoints him his successor]], meaning everybody's eyes will be on him and an assassination attempt will be all but impossible. [[spoiler:While Uryu's assassination attempt was on a far bigger scale than merely a sneak attack on Yhwach (namely, spreading the innocuous-looking components of a ''FantasticNuke'' all over Yhwach's palace to wipe out the entire Vandenreich, to be triggered while Yhwach is sleeping), [[TheDragon right-hand-man Haschwalth]] figures out his plan anyway.]]

** [[HeroicBastard Jon Snow[[ joins the wildlings in "Valar Morghulis" and remains with them throughout Season 3, convincing them that he's a ''bona fide'' defector. Killing [[spoiler:Qhorin Halfhand]] (under Qhorin Halfhand's orders) in a one-on-one combat, along with his admission that he ''was'' unhappy with Mormont's decision to ally with Craster, went some ways toward convincing the wildlings. That being said, subtlety is ''definitely'' not Jon's strong suit, since both Orell and Ygritte immediately pick up on the fact that he's working as a Fake Defector.
