* {{Subverted|Trope}} in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban''. [[spoiler:Everyone said Sirius Black was a Death Eater, so an appearance of Voldemort was expected.]] It is the only book where Voldemort isn't the BigBad. [[spoiler:Although, the events in the climax of Book 3 lead to Voldemort's reincarnation in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'', so it's a sort of remote hijacking.]]

He seemingly betrays and murders Dumbledore on Voldemort's orders, but is later revealed to have been a double-agent who was on the right side all along]].

This can be a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]] of OutsideContextVillain, in that the OutsideContextVillain (the original) is actually subordinate to a villain who is ''not'' outside context. Similarly, it could be that the original OutsideContextVillain is not actually the BigBad, but instead the replacement. See also GreaterScopeVillain.

* ''Film/SpiderMan3'' has a form of this. Turns out the guy Spidey killed in the first movie didn't kill Uncle Ben after all, The Sandman did! We never see Uncle Ben getting shot in the original, but it still gives no indication that there was more than one robber involved.

** To be fair, SS2's incarnation of SHODAN looks completely different from the original's. Players at the time likely wouldn't have recognized her.

Surely the nature of these examples and the Trope Name should invalidate the need for spoilers. It's pretty obvious at this point.

* A key plot element in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', also [[spoiler:inverted.]] Most of End of the Golden Witch involves [[spoiler:Battler trying to keep the role as protagonist]] and [[spoiler:Bernkastel]] doing the hijacking.

** In the fourth-episode cliffhanger of "The Invasion of Time", the Rutans are defeated... and then it turns out that they were tools for the Sontarans, who turn up to take matters into their own hands.
