* The basic premise of ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'' is that nine people are kidnapped and forced to play a DeadlyGame by someone called 'Zero'. As it turns out, [[spoiler:four of the players actively worked to create the game, and the other four know who Zero is, or can at least make an educated guess]]. The only people who are as innocent as they claim are [[spoiler:K and Quark]], given that [[spoiler:Alice probably knows everything Clover does]].

* The protagonists of ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'' are test subjects for a government experiment, and yet most of them are there illegitimately. [[spoiler:Akane, Sigma, and Phi are only there to conduct corporate espionage, Junpei threatened someone to get himself on the list, and Q is an A.I who was created specifically for the experiment.]]

* The ''DogCity'' episode "Disobedience School" had Bugsy Vile taking over the school and trying to turn the students into delinquents. After the climax, all students in his class turned out to be infiltrators from various police agencies.
* On ''{{Duckman}}'', a televangelist hosted a forum of other religious figures, who at the end were revealed to be fakes - except for the Ayatollah, who just wanted to improve his image in the states.

* In an episode of ''TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutron'', a picnic is accompanied by a series of parent-child games. Jimmy, who naturally despairs of [[BumblingDad Hugh]] winning anything unassisted, invents something that more or less instills hypercompetence in athletics. When [[TheRival Cindy]] wins after the device malfunctions, it's revealed that her "mother" is actually her bodybuilding aunt, which would mean the prize goes to the Neutrons - except that they fess up to cheating as well, at which point the presenter runs through every team present until near-terminally unathletic Carl and his father are revealed to be the only ones who haven't cheated in at least one of the events.

* ''Film/TheBeliever'': Danny starts a class advocating Nazism, and is later told most "students" are police informants, not actual neo-Nazis.



* ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' had the team attempt to infiltrate a pedophile "club" of sorts...only to discover that some other organization (FBI, most likely) was also setting up a sting operation. An exasperated Captain Cragen wonders aloud if this inability of the Good Guys to work together is why the Bad Guys keep staying ahead.

* Famously, during the [=McCarthy=] era in the USA, the FBI had many of its members infiltrate the American Communist Party. It was estimated that, at its peak, approximately ''two-thirds'' of the American Communist Party consisted of operatives on the FBI payroll.

* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'', too, when Tony and Ziva [[UndercoverAsLovers act as an assassin couple]]. Fortunately, Gibbs and Fornell quickly agree to work together. As the series progressed, they would continue to have JurisdictionFriction with pretty much every security-related branch of the government (the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, the ATF, the Department of Homeland Security...heck, even the local police aren't always cooperative!).
