** ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryInc'' uses this a fair bit - usually, of the named characters, the culprit is the one who seems secondary, is introduced completely outside the course of the mystery, and doesn't seem to have anything to do with it at all. The biggest examples are probably [[spoiler:the Trickel's Triquids mascot]] from "Revenge of the Man Crab", who only appeared for 10 seconds, and [[spoiler:the Minner brothers]] from "Battle of the Humongonauts", who didn't appear at all before the unmasking and were only mentioned in radio ads and one scene on a billboard.

"Wrath of Krampus" still beats them though; [[spoiler: the gang are behind the Krampus attacks, using them to trick the original Mystery Inc.]]

** In an earlier movie, "Where's My Mummy", the villain was [[spoiler: Velma, who wanted to protect an archaeological site.]]

** ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire]]'': Similar to the previous book, but much more convoluted. [[spoiler:Barty Crouch Jr., son of the Ministry official of the same name, spent ''the entire school year'' Polyjuice-morphed into Mad-Eye Moody (requiring many doses of potion every day), in order to carry out an elaborate scheme to kidnap Harry for Voldemort's resurrection ritual. His existence is barely mentioned before the reveal--Harry spots "Barty Crouch" on the Marauder's Map, but assumes it's his father--and there were no clues that "Moody" was an impostor (the real one never even appears until the end).]]
