* Pick any ''Literature/SherlockHolmes'' story, and you'll find a scholar who holds that Moriarty was behind it. Of course, the opening of "The Adventure of the Norwood Builder" more or less declares open season on this behavior, but that still doesn't account for such theories for stories that [[StayingAlive take place after Moriarty is supposed to have died.]]

* In ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'' it's almost inevitable that whoever the heroes are fighting next is really a pawn of [[BigBad Naraku]]. However, to their credit the heroes are almost always [[GenreSavvy aware of this]], increasingly so as the series goes on. [[spoiler: And then it turns out Naraku was being manipulated all along by the Shikon jewel -- and the [[GreaterScopeVillain ancient dragon youkai]] inside of it.]]

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'' the Arbalest Empire is built up as far stronger and far more evil than anything Fairy Tail has ever faced - such an insurmountable force that Makarov [[spoiler:disbands the guild rather than face them]]. However, we later find out that the Emperor of the Arbalest Empire is [[spoiler:a villain we already know quite well, Zeref]].

* The finale of the ComicBook/DarkwingDuck comic, "Dangerous Currency" has Magica [=DeSpell=] and the Phantom Blot using a corruptive inky substance (which brings ''VideoGame/EpicMickey'' to mind), only for the substance to be Negaduck after a LiteralSplitPersonality experience that transformed him into a GrayGoo. He regains physical form, hijacks the story and takes the Blot's offer of an AssimilationPlot that merges the other villains into Negaduck.

* European Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse comics did a story arc about an evil wizard who brainwashed Beagle Boys, Magica and Phantom Blot to serve him and keep the protagonists busy while he will carry on his evil plan. Phantom Blot however turned out to be just pretending to be brainwashed so he could stike at him and take over his scheme. In the end it was subverted, because the wizard ran away right after that, keeping his status of the BigBad for the final part of the story.

* The Film/JamesBond movie ''Film/{{Spectre}}'' features the return of SPECTRE, the NebulousEvilOrganization from the early Bond films and later novels. The movie reveals that SPECTRE was the true power behind, or was at least strongly connected to, QUANTUM, the organization who's agents served as the villains of the first two Craig-era movies, ''Film/{{Casino Royale 2006}}'' and ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'', as well as Raoul Silva from ''Film/{{Skyfall}}''. However, this trope only applies out-of-universe. The soft ContinuityReboot that occurred in ''Casino Royale'' means that this is the first time James Bond fights SPECTRE in this continuity.
* ''Film/ResidentEvilRetribution'' has [[spoiler: [[AIIsACrapshoot the Red Queen]], who was previous deactivated at the end of the first movie and was revived presumably between ''Film/ResidentEvilExtinction'' and ''Film/ResidentEvilAfterlife''.]]
* ''Film/{{Zoolander 2}}'' hints that Atoz, the new female fashion designer, is going to be the main villain. [[spoiler: Later on, Mugatu becomes freed from prison and is revealed to be the one assassinating the world's most beautiful people in order to kill all fashion designers and models, with Atoz actually being Katinka from the last movie in disguise.]]

* ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast A Link to the Past]]'' features an odd, ambiguous situation due to the fact that main villain Agahnim is said, depending on version, to be either a pawn of Ganon or purposely working for him, yet Ganon directly refers to the dark wizard as his own alter ego right before the final battle (which is supported by an image of Ganon's shadow popping out of Agahnim's body, turning into a bat, and then flying into the Pyramid of Power). If such a claim is indeed true, furthered by Agahnim's {{Leitmotif}} becoming Ganondorf's theme from ''Ocarina of Time'' onward, Ganon quite possibly hijacked ''[=ALttP=]'' from ''himself''. Either way, however, his goal of freeing Ganon is stated fairly early on rather than being a plot twist, downplaying the hijacking in comparison to later games.

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