* Parodied by the Agency from the SciFiChannel's series ''Series/TheInvisibleMan''. It's a secret government agency that [[OddlySmallOrganization consists of about five (visible on-screen) people]], and because of this is prone to being transferred around between various departments of the US Government, as well as suffering from budget cuts. About the only thing they have going for them is that the titular invisible man works for them.

* The Group from ''Film/{{Munich}}'' and ''Sword of Gideon'', an all-pervasive criminal organisation whose basic role is that of TheFixer. What they do is pay ordinary people a lot more money to do their job for an illegal purpose. Got a body in a hotel room that needs to be disposed of? The hotel staff will carry it out in a cleaning trolley, then pass it on to an undertaker who'll bury it in one of his graves.

* The ''Fanfic/CoreLine'' setting has The Foundation, which is the result of both [[Series/KnightRider The Foundation For Law And Government]] and [[Series/MacGyver the Phoenix Foundation]] pooling their resources (and getting assistance from people like [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers Optimus Prime]], now the Governor For Life of the State of Michigan) because individually they were too under-powered and under-gunned to make any change on the titular WorldGoneMad. While many other organizations in the setting have the name "[Something] Foundation", the moment you hear "'''[[SpellMyNameWithAThe The]]'''" Foundation is out to get you, you should ''seriously'' think about pulling stakes and running.

* The Order from ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' are a NoCelebritiesWereHarmed version of the Freemasons as they were commonly thought of in Victorian times, being a shadowy group of influential men at the highest reaches of power engaging in mysterious, weird rituals. It's gradually taken over by a powerful and charismatic DarkMessiah who has returned from the dead and is demonstrating his power to such an extent that almost the entire country is utterly terrified of him. However, it's ultimately a complete deconstruction, as the Order is largely presented as a bunch of superstitious and largely ineffectual old men who are utterly caught up in their own mythology [[spoiler: to the extent that they'll let the so-called DarkMessiah, in fact a complete charlatan, seduce them with a theatrical manner and some admittedly pretty clever conjuring tricks. Hey, this is ''SherlockHolmes''; as if he wasn't going to be DoingInTheWizard]]. It's also an excuse for them to have orgies, apparently.

* The [[SpaceX Star]] Cabal in ''VideoGame/TheOldRepublic'', a shadowy organization that butts heads with the Imperial Agent throughout their storyline. The Cabal is revealed to have been manipulating events since not long after the Great Hyperspace War (ca. 1200 years before the game) and several characters from other class missions have cameos among their ranks, [[ParanoiaFuel leaving it ambiguous how much they actually did]] in the interest of their long-term goals.
