* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', Jaime Lannister calls Locke this by name. Unusually for this trope, the man he works for (Roose Bolton) is a TokenEvilTeammate, so doesn't really need one (especially since Locke doesn't really operate in the shadows, and is quite open about working for Bolton). Consequently, the term comes across more as a simple insult than this trope.

* There are quite a few in ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' thanks to the feudal nature of the system... although calling "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Mountain That Rides]]" a "rat" is, frankly, not doing [[ProfessionalKiller Gregor Clegane]] justice, for all he does do some seriously dirty jobs for House Lannister beyond simply killing problems as messily as possible. And, then there is the fact that this is the Brave Companions aka "The Bloody Mummers" whole shtick. Lord Walder Frey is a notable example of the breed, though. He's certainly a [[SmugSnake very slimy rat]]... who occasionally doesn't even bother to turn up to do his job as a pet [[spoiler: and went on to throw in the towel and become a full-on {{Starscream}}, but only with the help of more powerful backers.]] Even when [[spoiler: switching masters to gain the new job]], he still needs to have one to bolster his own position in the world.
