* ''{{D-Tox}}'' was a film with this premise, starring Sylvester Stallone. Stallone was one of 9 cops being treated for psychological problems at a remote ranch in snowy Wyoming. However, one of the other patients was actually a serial killer who targets cops, having killed the real patient and assumed his identity. The real killer turned out to be the character who was most apparently helpful and mature (as opposed to the cowardly guy or the violent alcoholic).

* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' has an interesting example: the presence of a mole is not revealed until the fifteen students have been whittled down to [[spoiler:seven]], and the mastermind ''immediately'' reveals the mole's identity in the hope that someone will murder him/her. [[spoiler:There was also a second mole who was betrayed by the mastermind and murdered in the first chapter]].
** ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' goes a step further by having the mastermind reveal ''from the start'' that one of the sixteen students is a "traitor". [[spoiler:However, this "traitor" is not a murderer but an observer sent to ''help'' the students. Furthermore, the knowledge of this "traitor"'s presence does not drive anyone to murder out of paranoia: the murderer of Chapter 5 ''claims'' to be doing it to flush out the traitor, but that turns out to be a bluff]].

* ''Series/{{Whodunnit}}'' also did this, although played much more straight here. The contestants were all ostensibly invited to the RealityShowMansion by Giles, the show's host, at the killer's anonymous behest. Giles receives and passes on instructions from TheMole, who "kills" each episode's worst-performing player in some convoluted way, thus presenting a mystery for the contestants to figure out in the next airing.

* ''{{Saw 2}}'' has a group of apparent strangers finding themselves locked in an abandoned house, which is obviously full of Jigsaw's traps. They soon begin to learn that something links them all together...
