* ''Series/JekyllAndHyde2015'' has Jekyll run into two of these, one a good monster-hunting organization and the other a sinister cult. Both sides try to use him as they see fit.

**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.

* The Swiss Federal Council, a seven-member body that acts as Switzerland's collective President, Prime Minister and Cabinet. They are elected by Parliament, and all their meetings are secret- nobody knows who said what or who voted for what, even how the vote was split is secret, whether it's unanimous or a slim 4/3.

* The Council of Nations in the ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}}'' 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.

** Buffy implicitly states in 'Selfless' that there's "no all-knowing council" to govern her actions. There appear to be many in addition to those listed above in the Buffyverse, Buffy is even aware of some of them. The Watcher's Council is specifically there to guide her, although she had partially resigned from working with them at this point. Buffy is also presummably aware of the Powers that Be. It can be assumed she was ignoring all these examples to justify her authority.

** The prequel, ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'', begins similarly, with Bob Page and the rest of the Illuminati Council of Five discussing their latest scheme for world domination via distorted voice teleconference. None of the members' faces, except Page's are shown, and only two ([[spoiler:Zhao Yun Rhu and Hugh Darrow]]) can be definitively identified via their distinctive (and thus not completely distorted) accents.
