* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': Edison Po is the only member of [[NebulousEvilOrganization Centipede]] who speaks directly to their [[TheGhost mysterious]] leader, The Clairvoyant, and passes on his orders. [[spoiler: In "The Magical Place", the Clairvoyant kills him and replaces him with [[TheHeavy Raina]]. And after Raina's arrest, at the end of that episode Ian Quinn seems to have replaced her. As of ''his'' arrest in "T.RA.C.K.S.", the Clairvoyant seems to have abandoned having a Mouth of Sauron in favor of a [[TheBrute Brute]], Deathlock.]]

* TheFourthAgeTotalWar is notable for using the TropeNamer himself to play with this trope. Namely, He/It survived the fall of his master and Mordor and fled into the shadows, only to assume the mantle of Dark Lord and BigBad [[spoiler: and the name of Herumor for himself. He's spent the last several years orchestrating]] the enemy attacks from without and corruption from within the Reunited Kingdom of Gondor and Rohan that have brought it low and seriously weakened it. It gets to the point that the part of the realm secedes as the "Kingdom of Adunabar" in Ithilien and Mordor. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, this kingdom and its' leader are in the thrall of Herumor and thus its' King is the MouthOfSauron to the former trope namer.]] However, since Adunabar can choose its' own destiny, this trope might wind up [[NiceJobFixingItVillain backfiring on the Shadow.]]

* A heroic example in ''Literature/HorusHeresy''. With the Emperor being locked up and warring beneath the Imperial Palace, Malcador - the only person with psychic contact with him - becomes his herald and regent, telling the Imperium its Emperor's will, and sometimes even turning into WillingChanneler for [[FanNickname Emps]].
* In ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', [[spoiler:Violette]] becomes the voice of the horde's leader, as he's above talking to [[SonOfAnApe apes]]. He somehow beams his intent to her mind and she speaks for him even when he's present.

*** The Vorta as a whole generally serve as this to the Founders, delivering the Founder's orders to subject races and the Jem'hadar, most of whom have never seen a Founder and, in the case of the former, really don't want to. One Dominion citizen descibes dealing with the Dominion as the Vorta show up on your world and tell you what to do, and then you do it immediately, or else you deal with the Jem'hadar.

The Mouth Of Sauron often serves as TheDragon, and can sometimes be a villainous counterpart to a SupportingLeader: when the real villain is in the background [[TheChessmaster pulling strings]], he needs someone to go out and lead his EvilArmy against the forces of good.

* In ''Literature/ColdfireTrilogy'', this is exploited and inverted by the Hunter Gerald Tarrant. He makes frequent visits to places outside of the Forest pretending to be a mere servant of the Hunter. It helps that almost nobody knows what the Hunter actually looks like or if he's even human. He explains to Damien that it's more convenient this way -- people don't mess with him out of fear of provoking his "master's" wrath. On the other hand, if he showed up as the Hunter, everyone would be trying to kill him in the hopes of getting in a lucky shot (it would have to be a ''very'' lucky shot, since he's a master of earth and dark ''fae'' who once easily defeated an army the Church sent into the Forest after him [[OneManArmy by himself]]).

* [[spoiler: Benji]] is this unwillingly in ''Film/MissionImpossibleRogueNation'', when Lane kidnapps him and places him [[spoiler:with a bomb strapped to him]] at a local in London. He's forced to repeat the words Lane tells him via headset to Ethan.

* This is a manager's primary role if the wrestler himself isn't a very good wordsmith. A prominent example is Wrestling/PaulHeyman for Wrestling/BrockLesnar.

* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', the Bloodline King has an emissary he uses to communicate with the outside world on his behalf. Considering the man can [[VillainousTeleportation teleport]], it's no surprise he was chosen for the job.
