** Subverted in ''Anime/Danganronpa3'' Future Arc, [[spoiler:where Junko has nothing to do with the Final Killing Game]]. Played straight in Despair Arc [[spoiler:where she literally hijacked the plot midway and showed how she plunged the world into despair.]]
** PlayedWith in ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'', in which the mastermind, upon being cornered, discussed this trope to deflect the blame, before [[spoiler:she cosplays as her... but still has nothing to do with Junko at all. In addition, when Kokichi Oma was thought to be the mastermind, the true mastermind made everybody believe that Kokichi was a Remnant of Despair. In actuality, Kokichi has zero idea on who Junko Enoshima even was.]]

* Zig-zags in ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'', since the [[TheChessmaster recurring]] [[EvilGenius baddie]] is openly hanging out with the new baddies, in a PaperThinDisguise, for much of the game. However, all the characters believe ''that'' character to have been dead since [[VideoGame/GoldenSun the first two games]], so it's a shock to ''them'' when his identity is revealed. He laughs. [[spoiler:And this being Alex, [[HiddenAgendaVillain we still don't even know what he's after]], [[TheUnfought nor do we get to beat him down for it]].]] In a sense, it's played straight. At first, it seems like you're going to stop the Psynergy Vortexes and get the roc feather, but the Vortex subplot is dropped after Konpa Cave [[spoiler:until TheStinger]], and the roc feather quest takes a backseat to stopping the Grave Eclipse.

* ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' has Vamdemon/Myotismon who manipulated Oikawa into the apparent BigBad of the series who in turn, manipulated Ken into the digital emperor, the villain of the first season. The [[AllThereInTheManual video games and a little mention in Tamers]] give this even more of a MindScrew. The Dark Spore which made Ken the Digimon Emperor came from an attack used by Milleniumon. But Milleniumon is a Jogress Shinka[[note]]DNA Digivolution[[/note]] of a dying Khimeramon and Mugendramon[[note]]Machinedramon[[/note]]. [[StableTimeLoop Khimeramon was created by Ken while he was the Digimon Emperor]], so Ken actually created his own hijacker while he was hijacked.

* During the "Dead End Kids" arc, the ComicBook/{{Runaways}} end up in New York City in 1907. While there, they are told that the criminal underworld is supposedly run by Maneater (a sort of predecessor to the Kingpin) and the Sinners. Chase and Xavin later discover that the Sinners are actually answering to [[spoiler:Dale and Stacy Yorkes, the parents of Chase's dead girlfriend, and enemies to the Runaways. They are understandably displeased when they find out that Gert's dead in 2007...]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'', despite being set in the same world as ''Literature/HarryPotter'', features Grindelwald as the GreaterScopeVillain for the franchise. The first film, however, depicts him as being a VillainOfAnotherStory, with his actions being present but only in Europe. Surprise - the villain isn't a follower, but Grindelwald himself.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/DivinityOriginalSinII'', Bishop Alexandar was built up to be the BigBad. Then it turns out he was just a DiscOneFinalBoss (twice) and the ''true'' BigBad is Dallis the Hammer. But then, it turns out that Dallis was a BigBadDuumvirate with none other than Lucian. But Lucian was never an antagonistic figure before... and within the FinalBoss fight with Dallis and Lucian, ''Braccus Rex'' (an antagonist from the previous ''Original Sin'' game) emerges as the villain. Then he takes over and becomes the TrueFinalBoss. Larian explained Braccus Rex's presence (and foreshadowed it) with him being BackFromTheDead by necromancy.
