* Izaya Orihara from ''{{LightNovel/Durarara}}'', though it's hard to tell whether he's [[OnlyInItForTheMoney doing it for the money]] or simply because [[ItAmusedMe It Amuses Him]]. Considering his intelligence and [[{{Jerkass}} his]] [[ManipulativeBastard personality]], it's probably the latter with the former as a perk.

Unfortunately he's half-insane from the head injury that put him there. Quiller has to parachute in, get past several attack dogs, then talk the KnowledgeBroker into not only giving him the information, but not killing him during his fits of psychosis.

* Redd White from ''PhoenixWrightAceAttorney''.

* A lighthearted version (that borders on TheFamilyForTheWholeFamily) appears in Disney Channel's ''Series/{{Jessie}}''. Recurring character Tony, the doorman of the high-rise where the show takes place, is apparently the best-connected person in all of New York. Whenever the main characters need [[NoodleImplements strange objects]] for some ZanyScheme, it's a safe bet that "Tony knows a guy" who can get them.

* The villainous [[FatBastard Dale "the Whale" Biederbeck]] of ''Series/{{Monk}}'' is one of these (it helps that he's also [[Fiction500 insanely rich]]). In his debut episode, it's revealed that he has dirt on everyone from politicians to professional baseball coaches, and can make them obey him with a single phone call; later, he somehow manages to learn about some shameful parts of Natalie's past within a day or two of her meeting him. In a later episode, he forms an EnemyMine pact with Monk by offering information on Trudy's death that even the cops never discovered in exchange for Monk's clearing him of a murder. What makes this particularly impressive is that Dale weighs in at 800 pounds, and thus runs his information empire from a specially-made bed.

* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5DuwoHpEa4 I Will: The Story of London]] for the Pioneer Laseractive, the man to see was Mr. Pound AKA "Antenna", who runs a Britain-wide information network. He's easily recognised as he's the only person in the entire game who carries two umbrellas in one hand.
