* In Creator/RobertEHoward's ConanTheBarbarian novel ''Literature/TheHourOfTheDragon'', the cult of Asura is portrayed as this. While they are secretive, Conan refused to persecute them without actual crimes, and they assist him in regaining his throne. And do not, in the course of the novel, show any sign that the accusations are anything but MaliciousSlander.

* JackieChan stumbles onto one in the ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' episode "The Chan That Knew Too Much". Much of the humor in that episode comes from their deciding HeKnowsTooMuch.

* A rare heroic example from ''Webcomic/TheSanityCircus'': The Nameless Organisation is concerned with tracking down, monitoring and keeping a lid on [[EldritchAbomination the Scarecrows]], but they do with maximum secrecy and all information is strictly limited. They're even called 'The Nameless Organisation', after all.

** Also, this trope is being invoked in-universe: the trappings of the Circle hide the fact that they aren't a secret society at all. They're actually the ghosts of a fallen civilization using their rituals to possess the bodies of both innocent victims and recruits. They act like a secret society both to get a greater pool of bodies to incarnate into and to look like a different kind of threat to law enforcement and the government. The masks and robes ensure their low-level recruits don't notice the replacements.

* When the fans get a hold of the Black Cloak Society in ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'', they usually get this treatment. AGDInteractive's FanRemake of ''VideoGame/KingsQuestII'' has several hints that they're prepping to survive TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt - possibly the events of ''VideoGame/KingsQuestMaskOfEternity''. AGD puts another example in their version of the game by [[spoiler: having the benevolent monk]] from the original turn out to be running a [[spoiler:FurAgainstFang racket against what turns out to be the FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire]]

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Unknown Armies}}'' it's very likely that the robe-wearing, secretive cultists with an agenda for the entire world are actually the Player Characters themselves. Also their main antagonists. And some of the side characters too. The Occult Underground being defined as a subculture of secrecy is a fertile breeding ground for all manners of secret cults, with varying degrees of evilness (or, for that matter, efficiency).

* ''TabletopGame/TheDraculaDossier'': During Dracula's initial visit to England, he took over a Satanic cult with a large proportion of upper-class members. Edom later suspected the cult was acting as a "stay-behind" network for Dracula.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Planescape}}'', there are the Primals, a group who is based in the Inner Planes. They seem to have discovered some big secret of the universe, but aren't eager to share it. (Most assume it has something to do with Elemental powers, given their location and name.) Due to the secrecy, most other folk assume they're up to no good, even though there's no concrete proof.
