* This is an entire category of characters in ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'', known in the biz as a "Mr. Johnson." They tend to work for a MegaCorp, and act as liaisons between the legitimate face of a company and our less than legal protagonists. One of the major mysteries behind each mission, for those who care to find out, is exactly ''who'' they are working for and what their motive is. Given the existence of twenty-first century cosmetics, hackers, counter-hackers, and possibly magic, many players would rather just GetOnWithItAlready.

* During the ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' storyline "True Believers", the super hero support group Excelsior had a mysterious benefactor who wanted them to rein in the kids. Turns out that it was [[spoiler:Rick Jones, former sidekick to the [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Hulk]] and CaptainAmerica]]. It's subverted, though, when the group got their own comic ''ComicBook/TheLoners'', somehow losing their support.
