* According to LittleKuriboh and Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series, 4kids is this. Turned UpToEleven. They just pop up every now and again, standing up in sync dramatically/observing everyone/making sure that nobody says [[spoiler: Disney]]. Ah! I said it! Noo!
* In the WhateleyUniverse, we've seen TheFaceless group known as 'the Syndicate'. We might even know who the head guy is. But it seems like they don't even want each other to know who they are. And they do seem to be the superpowered version of the Mafia.

* The Council of Nations in the ''VideoGame/{{XCOM}}'' series sits in the shadows and covertly funds the whole X-COM project, with close links to prominent politicians, businessmen, and military officers. In a rare {{subver|tedTrope}}sion, it is a ReasonableAuthorityFigure that only reprimands the player if they are doing a bad job at repelling the x-rays.

* ''Film/{{Eraserhead}}'''s Man In The Planet manages to be a one-man council of vagueness. Theories on just what he is range from {{Satan}} to {{God}}. Do keep in mind that it is a DavidLynch film.

**Of course, it becomes clear over the course of the prequels that the Council never really begins trusting Anakin, so he instead becomes friendly with [[BigBad Palpitine]]. Had the Council not treated Anakin as a ticking time bomb for over a decade, it's likely that he wouldn't have so much pent-up frustration and anger for Palpitine to exploit. So in a way, this is a SelfFulfillingProphecy.

* The Norwegian Labour Party has a CatchPhrase, referring to the party`s inner circles, and beautifully coining this trope: "'''Some of us have had a talk'''". When ''that'' sentence popped up in a party discussion, people knew some serious shit was about to go down.
