* This is Dr. Wily's trademark tactic in the ''VideoGame/MegaManClassic'' series. He pretended to reform in ''VideoGame/MegaMan3'', and in all subsequent main series games except ''VideoGame/MegaMan7'' and ''VideoGame/MegaMan8'', he turns out to be using the initial villain or some other phenomenon as a decoy. The reason he doesn't in ''7'' is that the game begins with Wily being arrested, but his robots activate themselves and free him. Also does it in ''VideoGame/MegaManV'' for the Game Boy with the Star Droids [[spoiler:though in a bit of a twist, he is ''not'' the final boss of this game]]. Amusingly, the game doesn't even ''try'' to hide that he's the final boss of ''VideoGame/MegaMan9'' or ''VideoGame/MegaMan10'', as the achievement for beating each game is named "Whomp Wily!"

* Franchise/{{Blazblue}}: The series has a pretty active BigBadEnsemble, but ultimately Yuuki Terumi is the overall BigBad with the largest influence on the plot. He takes center stage in the second game along with his partner-in-crime [[MadScientist Relius Clover]], but they're both ultimately pushed aside for Hades: Izanami, [[PhysicalGod the goddess of death]] in the third game and Terumi is rather unceremoniously killed off...[[JokerImmunity except he wasn't.]] Come the fourth game, both Izanami and their EvilGenius Nine take center stage as the primary threats, with Relius hanging in the background to observe the events and Terumi hanging on by a thread to survive. After Izanami and Nine are defeated, Relius decides to pull a VillainExitStageLeft, leaving Terumi, or rather his true form as Susano'o, as the sole BigBad and the FinalBoss of the series. It's even revealed that Terumi was indirectly responsible for the other villain's plots as well.

It turns out that the phantom is none other than [[spoiler:UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler. When Hitler reveals his identity to the neo-Nazi leader, he stops giving advice and starts giving orders.]]

* In a way, this is played with during the final boss fight of ''VideoGame/MadWorld''. After getting to the final area, you're set to fight the previous champ, and it is never revealed who that is, so one would expect a powerful new face that may reveal something about [[spoiler:Jack's past in the games]]. Then, get ready for this, [[spoiler:'''IT'S THE BLACK BARON.''' Yes, the guy who died multiple times as a joke character to explain how mini-games work is the final boss and has no clue who Jack is]]. Oh, and they're surprisingly {{Badass}}. While the main plot continues as expected, the final boss fight is with the least expected person... but one that has been previously established as a villain of sorts.

** A lot of fangames that have Wily as the BigBad of the game, like ''VideoGame/MegaManUnlimited'' and ''VideoGame/MegaManSuperFightingRobot'', also go this route, though the latter has a more GenreSavvy Mega Man see this trope coming.

** Zig-zagged with Akatsuki. First it was revealed that it was all the doing of [[spoiler: Jiraiya's former student]]. But wait, it was actually Tobi, who is actually [[spoiler: Obito Uchiha]], it was actually [[spoiler: Madara, who manipulated both of them to resurrect him so he could become god.]] Then, rather abruptly, it's revealed that [[spoiler: ''Zetsu'' is doing this to Madara. In fact, he's been manipulating pretty much everything connected to the Uchiha and Senju clans since before their founding as part of a ploy to resurrect Kaguya. This includes leading Madara around by the nose, starting Akatsuki and having Kabuto discover Madara's body.]]

* Parodied in an EasterEgg on the old ''AdventuresInOdyssey'' website where, among other tomfoolery, arch-villain Dr. Blackgaard turns out to be the mastermind behind the Novacom Saga... with a possible reference to the fact that there ''were'' plans for Mayor Margaret Fey to be the ultimate villain. Somehow.
