* 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.]]

Often results in everyone being LockedInARoom. This can be self-imposed, as our heroes can't chance TheMole reporting back to headquarters, but a GenreSavvy enough character may force this upon everybody, which will usually raise everybody's tension. Circumstances will always contrive to prevent our heroes from getting in touch with the outside world to find out who TheMole is, which may range from the aforementioned storm knocking out the telephone poles, to someone cutting the telephone lines, to outright smashing all the phones to pieces. [[AHouseDivided Accusations are hurled]], secrets are uncovered and more murders are committed as the DwindlingParty tries to determine who is the murderer in their midst.

* Web Reality show ''WebVideo/EscapeTheNight'' had this in it's premise, especially in its first season. Surprisingly, its a surreal version of E and J, as although the first episode tell's the contestant's that it's the house/AncientEvil Responsible, [[spoiler: In episode 2, they find a note stating "One among you Is in league with the evil". Who is it amoung the main cast? None of them, but Arthur, Head of Staff and NPC Character. This leads to alot of the early elimination's being out of paranoia, due to the VotedOffTheIsland mechanic, such as Justine's and Glozell.]]

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mafia_(party_game) Mafia]]-[[TheWerewolvesOfMillersHollow style]] games often run into this, as the town's objective is to hunt out the "mafia" from their midst. Many is the game where a last lynch leaves two town players or a last kill means the sole surviving mafia member.
