* In Creator/AndreNorton's ''Literature/{{Catseye}}'', Troy faces Kyger for most of the work. After Kyger's murder, and some adventure, he's taken prisoner, to Dragur. In hindsight, Dragur's actual fascination with his marine animals means that the animal shop was a perfect cover for their dealings.

** ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'': Shadow Labrys may have caused the [[TournamentArc P1 Grand Prix]], but the unknown human referred to as Eerie Voice was the one who stole her and threw her into the TV. In turn, Eerie Voice is being influenced by the similarly obfuscated Malevolent Entity. Malevolent Entity even implies it was The Man Behind The Man in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''Persona 4''. Adding to this the implication that the Malevolent Entity is actually Nyarlathotep, the ''Persona'' series will get him as the ultimate villain responsible for absolutely everything.

* When former BigBad Slade comes BackFromTheDead on ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', it soon becomes apparent that someone or something is pulling his strings this time around, confirmed at the end of the episode "Birthmark" when he is shown kneeling to an unseen figure and calling it "master". It turns out to be [[DarkMagicalGirl Raven's demonic father]], [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Trigon the Terrible]].
* A non-villainous version in ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'': It's pretty obvious that Deputy Mayor Callie Briggs is the one who really runs Megakat City, which is a good thing considering how incredibly incompetent Mayor Manx is.
* In the first season of ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'', Magneto is this to Mystique, who is in turn the Man Behind the Man to the Brotherhood as far as the X-Men are concerned (though both the viewer and Xavier knew about her from the start, and the viewer knew Magneto was meddling from the end of the first episode). Later on, Apocalypse is the man behind Mesmero.
* Sslither to Metlar in ''WesternAnimation/{{Inhumanoids}}''.

* In ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', the [[TheIlluminati Shadow Council of Ricks]] turns out to have been this for the original Council of Ricks that [[spoiler:Rick C-137 ("our" Rick) killed earlier in the season]]. They plan to be this for the newly elected [[spoiler:President Morty]] as well, but unfortunately for them, [[spoiler: President Morty--a.k.a. Evil Morty--has other plans, and [[BoardToDeath has most of them killed]] and [[ThrownOutTheAirlock their bodies blown out into space]]]].

* ''Fanfic/AManOfIron'' lampshades how much Tywin Lannister enjoys being "the power behind the throne", with Syrio Forel reminding Arya that Lord Tywin basically ruled Westeros for Aerys Targaryen and ''still'' rules the Seven Kingdoms in Robert Baratheon's stead. A peek in his mind also reveals he would be quite happy to prop a compliant Stark as Lord of Winterfell and Warden of the North, already making plans involving the Stark offshot in Iron Pointe for the eventuality of the main family line having a ''mishap''.
