* "[[Literature/ParkerPyneInvestigates The Case of the City Clerk]]" by Creator/AgathaChristie -- Meek clerk seeking a spot of excitement gets sent on an adventure that mixes staged Martini elements (which he thinks are real) and ''real'' Stale Beer elements (which he completely fails to recognise).

* The ''Franchise/MattHelm'' series varies depending on medium. The original books were Stale Beer with Helm being a ruthless ProfessionalKiller working for an intelligence agency that seemed to specialize in the morally dubious. The movies with Dean Martin are a martini-flavored parody of James Bond. The little seen television show made Helm a PrivateDetective.

to:

* ''Series/LondonSpy'' - Bleach and Ammonia Variety with a dash of Bathtub Gin, as the main character is a civilian who falls in love with a programmer who workes for MI6. When the MI6 programmer is ruthlessly murdered by his own handlers in an effort to destroy the technology he created, his civilian lover gets pursued by the ruthless and unscrupless agents of these various shadowy organisations who all seem intent on ruining his life.

to:

* ''ComicBook/MariaHill'', like Nick Fury below, started as Stale Beer (she was first brought in to be the interim Executive Director of a government agency because she was established as serious enough to follow the agenda), but the Martini was already there, as she had to supervise superheroes and she inherited Helicarriers as part of the job. It didn't take long to take a turn towards full Martini (shapeshifting RubberForeheadAliens invading the Earth) and the comic became some kind of martini/beer cocktail.

** Its mother series, ''Series/{{JAG}}'' also swung in its depiction of the espionage business. While {{CIA}} officer Clayton Webb often is portrayed as a martini spy on the superficial level, there's also a whole lot of morally ambigious stale beer stuff in his line of work as well, and often used story-wise as a stark contrast to the morally superior JAG officers (and the U.S. military in general). Other than Webb and a couple of other exceptions, people in the spy business tends not to be trustworthy at all.
*** Webb himself is morally ambiguous being something of a [[/index]]WellIntentionedExtremist[[index]]. His main saving graces are that he is not personally corrupt, is devoted to his country and is usually loyal to his friends at least at the end of the episode.
