* Music/TomLehrer introduced his song "The Wild West is Where I Want to Be" by saying, "A few years ago I worked for a while at the Los Alamos scientific laboratory in New Mexico. I had a job there as a spy. Now, I guess you know that the staff out there at that time was composed almost exclusively of spies... of one persuasion or another."

* In ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'', the game devolves into a three-way war between the [[ZombieApocalypse infected]], [[EvilArmy Blackwatch]], and the player character, [[HumanoidAbomination Alex Mercer]]. ''VideoGame/Prototype2'' seems to have the same setup (albeit with a new protagonist and Alex now leading the infection), but as the game progresses, it's revealed that practically half of Blackwatch is secretly working for Mercer.

* The Wiki/SCPFoundation story "[[http://www.scp-wiki.net/everyone-knows Everyone Knows]]", where it turns out that TheMasquerade no longer matters because ''everyone'' are involved with at least one organization dealing with the paranormal. Well, everyone but one person.

* Likewise the ratio of trolls to sincere members on [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conservapedia Conservapedia]], whose founder/lead editor Andrew Schlafly has gotten more and more paranoid about "liberal" (which he uses to mean anything short of the far right fringe) influence on his pet wiki... with the result that he consistently bans people who genuinely agree with most of his views as soon as they inevitably have a minor disagreement, and keeps the trolls who never disagree with him, ever (because they're only there to egg him on to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conservapedia#Conservative_Bible_Project new heights of ridiculousness and/or blasphemy]]). There is even a not so uncommon EpilepticTrees theory that Andy ''himself'' is a troll.

* In ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/122849/changeling Changeling]]'', which has a similar premise to the above (everyone but Celestia, Luna, Twilight Sparkle, Trixie, and [[spoiler:Prince Blueblood]] are changelings), the trope is namedropped by Celestia.
