* 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.]]

** ''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]].

* ''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...

* ''TransformersAnimated'' has this in the FlashBack filled episode "Autoboot Camp". [[spoiler: Wasp was framed, and the ''real'' mole went on to become the head of Autobot intelligence while Wasp slowly went insane. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Way to go, Bumblebee]].]]

* Several of Creator/SimonRGreen's ''Hawk And Fisher'' stories use this trope. His SecretHistories novel ''The Spy Who Haunted Me'' has a variant that plays out among spies held together in a group by the terms of their mission, rather than by geographic isolation.

Often the ''modus operandi'' in a ReunionRevenge. Occasionally a FinalGirl or other survivor(s) may be spared, but if the writers are really bloodthirsty, it only ends when they KillEmAll (or, if you're at the beginning of the series, EverybodysDeadDave); if they're feeling devious, they may also throw in a few instances of SuspectExistenceFailure. Don't be surprised if a MexicanStandoff or two pop up, especially for the finale.

* ''Series/InsideNo9'': ''[[Recap/InsideNo9S3E6PrivateView "Private View"]] is based on this premise and takes place an art gallery, where all of the characters are told they have been hand-picked for the exclusive first viewing. Two of the characters lampshade the trope by discussing how the events of the episode are similar to an Agatha Christie novel, and to Big Brother. The murderer [[spoiler: turns out to be the mother of the dead artist, and the artist did not plan or know about the murders; her motive is that she feels each of the characters, who were donated an organ by the artist, were ungrateful]]. The final twist is that [[spoiler: the last character left alive manages to kill the mother and takes credit for the art exhibition.]]

* ''Film/{{Alien 3}}'', which has been described as "''AndThenThereWereNone'' [[RecycledInSpace in outer space]]" by Entertainment Weekly, had the entire population of Fiorina 'Fury' 161, save for one prisoner (Morse), killed off by the xenomorph that had infiltrated the prison. [[spoiler:This includes Ellen Ripley herself, who died as a combined result of the chestbursting chewing its way out of her, and a suicide dive into the prison's metalworks]].
