* Ancient and the Mana-Ko beasts in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' were really secret agents working for [[TheOrder the Order of Mata Nui]]. The former was also a founding member of the evil bounty hunter organization the Dark Hunters, while the Mana-Ko were {{Giant Enemy Crab}}s guarding one of the BigBad's lairs. Sadly, neither reveal had any foreshadowing, nor have they impacted the plot in any way.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': PlayedForLaughs in "Hit the Diamond". [[spoilers: Garnet unfuses so that Ruby]] can infiltrate a team of enemy Gems - and she's [[BadLiar absolutely TERRIBLE]] at it, and only avoids being caught because the people she's trying to fool are complete idiots who can't even count themselves properly.

* During the Underdark episode in ''BaldursGate 2'', if you choose to spare Solaufein when Phaere wants him dead, he'll reveal that he's a follower of Elistrae, one of the few good-aligned deities of the drow pantheon, and is struggling to find redemption for his people.
* In ''FinalFantasyDissidia'', [[spoiler: Golbez]] turns out to be working for Cosmos, and serves as a StealthMentor to a few of the heroes. [[spoiler: Kuja]] was also one of these with a similar role in the prequel, but Kefka found out and loaded him up with malicious FakeMemories to get him to knock it off for the events of the original.

* In ''FanFic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'' [[spoiler:Shinji]] (A.K.A Agent "Balcony") is both TheMole and a ReverseMole. On one hand he is feeding information to the enemy about what the organization he works for is up to. On the other hand, given WHAT that organization is up to, and what he is trying to avert (including the deaths of those ones he cares for), you would be hard-pressed to call him a bad guy (and if they knew about his motives, it is highly doubtful nobody bar [[spoiler:Gendo and SEELE]] would call him a traitor). He is essentially a good guy pretends to be a bad guy pretending to be a good guy.

Scimitar's [[UndercoverCopReveal identity is finally revealed]] when [[spoiler: she arrives at Harm's room and [[spoiler: turns on the shower so they can talk in private.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' [[PlayingWithATrope played with this trope]] in the first season finale. [[MagnificentBastard Slade]] [[TheReveal reveals]] his season-long EvilPlan to [[TheHero Robin]]: Slade had [[spoiler:lured Robin away from the rest of the Titans, leaving them to deactivate his "Chronoton Detonator" which was actually a device that injected them with deadly nanites, allowing Slade to kill them with the push of a button]]. After this reveal, Slade [[spoiler:[[FaceHeelTurn made Robin his new apprentice]]]], thus making Robin [[PlayingWithATrope somewhat]] of a FakeDefector, albeit [[spoiler:with the [[ManipulativeBastard villain]] commandeering the [[ThePlan operation]] specifically designed to make the unwilling defector comply and [[WeWouldHaveToldYouBut prevent him from informing his comrades]] because [[SadisticChoice then, they would most assuredly die]], thereby making the goodies, ''not the bad guys'', the ones to be deceived by the hero's false defection.]] Following the establishment of his apprenticeship under Slade via a little crime spree and [[ShootYourMate a show-down with his ex-teammates]] Robin's friends fully believe that he has been lost to TheDarkSide, for good. This makes the discovery that Robin was really [[spoiler: [[ReverseMole on their side the entire time]]]] all the more surprising, from their P.O.V.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Lisa enters a singing contest hosted by Krusty, with Homer as her manager. After she fires Homer for being a JerkAss, he begins managing her competitor... who then loses all his fans and popularity in the final. Homer shows himself to be a ReverseMole to Lisa at the end.
