* Another Comicbook/SpiderMan villain, The Tinkerer, operates on a much smaller scale. Amongst other things, he is responsible for helping deck out Mysterio with his toys, and in the ''ComicBook/SecretWar'' storyline it was revelaed he is one of a number of arms dealers and rogues who are supplied by [[Comicbook/DoctorDoom Latveria]] (though Doom wasn't actually in charge of the country during that particular story; it is still the kind of thing Doom probably does).

** HYDRA are reponsible for [[VillainBall bringing back]] the RedSkull (who quickly betrayed them). They began as a ''Werewolf''-esque backup plan for the Nazi's in the closing days of WorldWarTwo, and evolved into a major international terrorist organization who have crossed paths with nearly every hero and villain in the Marvel Universe. AIM both creates the Cosmic Cube and the freakish [[AIIsACrapshoot MODOK]].

* ''Film/JamesBond'', the most recent films providing good examples as Le Chiffre from ''Film/CasinoRoyale'' is bank rolling African Terrorists as an employee of NebulousEvilOrganization Quantum, who in ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'' are trying to set up a Bolivian general as a dictator to seize control of Bolivia's water, and whose members include evil phony philanthropist Dominic Greene and an advisor to the British Prime Minister. They also convince the CIA and, later, MI6 to go along with their schemes under false pretences. They seem to be motivated by power more than by cash, and probably have some kind of ideology.

* Something like this seems to be going on in ''FlashForward''. The Blackout was orchestrated by a conspiracy which includes various scientist pawns, a crooked mercenary company, a trade company in Hong Kong, a nuclear terrorist/ assassin, and possibly elements of the US government. They have at least two moles in the FBI, though one of them is actually a double agent, but even she may be being duped as her handler might also be a spy. The conspirators has the power to make people see the future, which means they can pre-empt almost every move that will be made against them before it is even thought of. The full extent of the conspiracy will remain unknown sadly, as the series has been cancelled.

** The Hand (or a group of them) are presently run by TheKingpin (who took over from ComicBook/{{Daredevil}} himself). They are responsible for training Daredevil's girlfriend ComicBook/{{Elektra}} and his newer enemy Lady Bullseye up as assassins, and are a magical cult led by demons who worship another demonic creature called [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Beast]], who recruit members by killing them and ressurrecting them as either undead ninja or, if they are named superheroes/ villains, brainwashed killing machines. The Hand started off as poltically motivated rebels before being taken over by a more even cult called the Snakeroot, who generally form the Hand's elite.

* In ''SonsOfAnarchy'' the eponymous biker gang ends up in the center of one of these. They initially bought smuggled guns from a splinter group of the IRA and sold them to black gangs in Los Angeles. Their EqualOpportunityEvil nature makes them the ideal middleman between criminal organizations who do not trust each other but need what the other group sells. In the course of the series they make deals with the Russian [[TheMafya Mafya]], Latino biker gangs and a Mexican drug cartel. When a Justice Department taskforce is building a racketeering case against these groups, the Sons are a central element in proving a massive criminal conspiracy. By the end of season 4 things get even more complicated as the Sons are now [[spoiler: and unwilling partner in a CIA plan to take control of a Mexican drug cartel]] which takes the conspiracy to a new level.

* Creator/JohnGrisham's ''Literature/TheFirm'' has its protagonist uncover that [[spoiler:the seemingly amazing law firm he works for is actually a front for [[TheMafia the mob]], and that they kill anyone who either gets to close to the truth, or who learns it and doesn't want to become a partner, and therefor be in on TheConspiracy. The Firm conducts SinisterSurveillance on its employees, wiring their cars, homes, and telephones and monitoring their lives closely. When they do kill people, they tend to MakeItLookLikeAnAccident.]]
