* In ''[[{{Deryni}} The King's Justice]]'', Kelson sends Conall and an escort to conduct Princess Janniver and the nuns of a convent sacked by Mearan rebels to safety in Rhemuth, then expresses his wish to leave in pursuit of the rebel forces. "As Morgan gave the orders and the officers scattered to relay them, neither king nor general noticed a R'Kassan scout draw apart from his fellows and disappear beyond the picket lines, obscured by the bustle of breaking camp." He is later revealed to be [[spoiler: an agent of Princess Sofiana's, who shares what she has learned from him with the rest of the Camberian Council]].

* In DCComics's different titles in the months leading up to the ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths,'' the Monitor was depicted this way. He was not clearly seen, and he was "monitoring" the activities of different super-powered beings, sometimes intervening in various roundabout ways to put them in jeopardy to "test" them. He was made to look very sinister. Then the actual Crisis happened and he turned out to be the BigGood.

* Madoka, Arisu, Kaede and Sai in ''KidouTenshiAngelicLayer''. In the manga, they were even shown in silhouette. The English [=VAs=] for Tamayo and Koutarou lampshade the practice in an audio commentary, complaining that "soon, they'll have more lines than we do". Shuuko later takes up this role.
* Caren in ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch''. Later, Sara indulges in it once in a while.

* The {{ninja}}, [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Toyata]], in ''YTheLastMan''. For a long time her whole schtick was just watching the heroes through binoculars. Then her schtick became screwing over the heroes. Her first appearance was kind of both, though.

* Raven from ''[[Videogame//{{Tekken}} Tekken 5]]'' is introduced as one of these in the opening animation. And he's still one by the end of the game, because even if you play as him you never find out who he's actually working for.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Lonesome Road'' DLC of ''Videogame/FalloutNewVegas'', Ulysses can occasionally be spotted in certain parts far from your current location, observing you G-Man style.
* In ''Videogame/SlyCooperThievesInTime'', Clockwerk, the BigBad of the first game can occasionally be seen in the background of the various stages, which is consistent with his reputation of observing the Coopers throughout history.

* ''[[Anime/TheSlayers Slayers NEXT]]'' introduced [[{{troll}} Xellos]] as a shady, albeit cheerful, tag-along character whose job was to observe Lina to assess her abilities, on behalf of the Mozoku race. The reason being, he was to try to persuade her to join their clan, if he determined her power could be of use to them. Of course, if she refused, or if she was perceived to be a possible threat to them, Xellos' orders would be to kill her on the spot.
