** Subverted in ''Anime/Danganronpa3'' Future Arc, [[spoiler:where Junko have 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.]]

* After the release of Infernals in the second edition of {{Exalted}}, the Ebon Dragon seemed to have his hand in everything. He created the Unconquered Sun (Okay, that had been there since early first edition). He made contact with the Neverborn for the purposes of creating the Infernal AND Abyssal Exalted. He abducted the Scarlet Empress. He contacted the Viator of Nullspace and set him on his current quest to remake the Great Maker. Certain lines in Return of the Scarlet Empress -- the storyline in which one has at least four other Yozis to worry about, along with their own forces and those with the Realm, and he still manages to arise as the clear dominant villain of the entire game -- even strongly suggest he was behind the Great Curse.

Added DiffLines:

* ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'': While each volume has it's own set of antagonists, [[spoiler:the White Queen]] will always be revealed to be behind it all. Justified: [[spoiler:she's the strongest being in the setting, so any scheme worth the name will involve her in some capacity. Meanwhile, the Queen is completely obsessed with [[TheHero Kyousuke]], so she goes along with any plan that will let her encounter him]].

* FinalFantasy6 has this in a way. Kafka is initially just a mid-boss with Gestahl being revealed as the big bad... but much like Jacquio and Ashtar he becomes the final enemy, having pulled his boss' strings the whole way.

* In ''VideoGame/SystemShock 2'', you initially believe that The Many is the BigBad, having hijacked the Von Braun's crew with mind control. [[spoiler:Then your MissionControl turns out to be {=SHODAN=} from the previous game. After you wipe out The Many, SHODAN becomes the villain, though the [[SpoilerOpening box art and intro]] might have given it away. This is partly because ''[=SS2=]'' was meant to be a new standalone game, with the ''System Shock'' elements bolted on afterwards.]]

* In ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'', the events aboard the Bottle Ship are the fault of [[spoiler:MB, who is essentially a resurrected Mother Brain]]. The postgame is a more jarring and unexpected example. [[spoiler:Remember Phantoon? A boss who only appeared in ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' and was never heard from again? He takes control of the Bottle Ship in the postgame and, considering the creatures are still out to kill you, he may have helped MB cause the uprising from the background, making him the GreaterScopeVillain.]]

** In ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime2Echoes'', the [[TheHeartless Ing]] are the villains for most of the game, with the player occasionally running into the mysterious Dark Samus. As it turns out, the Ing were being used by Dark Samus, [[spoiler: who turns out to be Metroid Prime, the final boss of the first game.]] She goes on to take the starring role as the BigBad of [[MetroidPrime3Corruption the third game,]] making her the overarching villain of the ''Prime'' subseries.
