* ''Film/{{Triangle}}'' appears to be one of these, but its "six victims on a haunted cruise ship" beginning gets subverted ''hard.''

* In ''Manga/AstraLostInSpace'', one of the pressing mysteries is the possibility that one of the nine kids in the group is a traitor, who cut the communication devices on the ship they landed in. [[spoiler: Though they may have cut it for a good reason.]]



* In the Lone Island Syndrome episodes of ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' the SOS Brigade goes on a club field trip to an island mansion specifically set up to stage a murder mystery like this, in order to stop Haruhi from generating one herself (though it's left ambiguous at the end whether or not she's already created an external killer).
* The first ''Anime/GallForce'' does this without the murders. Each cast member is offed by differing circumstances as they try to make their way to the planet Chaos. [[spoiler:The mole was [[RobotGirl Catty]], but she was only trying to arrange for one of the others to get a FaceFullOfAlienWingWong in the name of galactic peace, and didn't actually try killing anyone. She [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices herself]] halfway through to let the other survivors get to an escape pod.]] A self-parody short of the entire series is even titled ''Ten Little Gall Force''.
* In volume 30 of ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', {{Captain Ersatz}}es of famous detectives were invited to an abandoned mansion and die off one by one. [[spoiler:Only one of them actually died. The rest faked their deaths once they deduced who the real killer was in order to PullTheThread on her]].
* Moto Hagio's ''Manga/TheyWereEleven'' has this happening during a survival test where ten students are stranded on a derelict spaceship...so why are there eleven of them? Everyone knows that one of them shouldn't be there as accidents keep happening, and the hero has the additional problem of fitting the "competent and helpful" rule of Mole detection above--as the other students begin to notice. [[spoiler:EverybodyLives. The extra examinee was an instructor sent in as TheMole to cause trouble and force the group to quit the test, as a SecretTestOfCharacter for all of them; things got out of his control. The hero's suspicious knowledge of the ship was because he was unknowingly a survivor of the disaster that originally destroyed it]].



* ''Anime/UruseiYatsura'' had an anime only episode where the group was killed off one by one till only Ataru was left [[spoiler:In the end, it turned out the murders and complicated reveal of a killer with Ataru's face were a complicated plan by the perfectly unharmed victims to "Fix" Ataru's personality. The ending makes it pretty clear that Ataru saw through it at some point and proved to be a better actor than they had realized]].
* In a chapter of ''Manga/FrankenFran'', Fran is invited by former patients for a party in a remote location. Soon, they are attacked one by one--hopefully, Fran can save them. This being ''[[{{Gorn}} Franken]] Fran'', the truth is far more disturbing than expected. [[spoiler:Even Fran finds it disturbing]].
** The answer? [[spoiler:The victims are doing it to themselves because they get off on Fran operating on them]].

** ''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 victim of Chapter 5 does take lengths to flush out the traitor, but it is decidedly not "murder out of paranoia"]].

* WesternAnimation/YoungJustice has a rather unique take on this. Once the core Six of Season One's cast is established, one of the villains hints to the team lead (Aqualad) that there is a mole on the team. It's quickly narrowed down to the three newest members (Superboy, Miss Martian, and Artemis) and the audience has suspicions for all three and each are given episodes that further hint to their culpability (Superboy was programed by Cadmus which was tied to the supervillain group The Light from the get go and was later given an improvement by Luthor, Miss Martian had some moments where she shied away from being open with something about her life on mars with the team, and its later revealed that she is a white Martian and The Light has known this for some time, and Artemis is claimed to be Green Arrow's niece but doesn't live remotely near him to be a sidekick and was seen as Speedy/Red Arrow's replacement, and later revealed to be the daughter to the Light's chief enforcer and the handler for the mole). Subverted when [[spoiler: they all three realize that the light is calling them to to set up an ambush and reveal to the team that they had been compromised, allowing the team to set up the Light members]]. DoubleSubverted when [[spoiler: The real mole turned out to be Red Arrow/Speedy, who was a Cadmus clone and programed to be a ManchurianCandidate who was trying to get into the JusticeLeague, not the team and was giving away the team info that his pals on the team had been telling him with the hope of trying to convince him to join.]]

* ''Film/{{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...
