* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline'', Mannimarco, the legendary [[OurLichesAreDifferent Lich]][=/=]{{Necromancer}} [[OverarchingVillain recurring villain]], serves as TheDragon to the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] Molag Bal, the BigBad of the main quest. Mannimarco is having his [[TheOrder Order of the Black Worm]] set up Dark Anchors in Tamriel as part of Bal's plot to merge his [[EldritchLocation Daedric]] [[GeniusLoci Plane]] with Mundus, the mortal realm. However, Mannimarco, who is an ImmortalitySeeker with even greater desires to [[AGodAmI become a full blown god]], plans to double cross Bal and usurp his position of divinity in the universe. [[FateWorseThanDeath This goes poorly for Mannimarco]], though he canonically survives, as he appears in (chronologically) later works in the series.

* In the manga of ''SailorMoon'', Queen Beryl, late in her career, makes some overtures toward wanting to steal the Silver Crystal herself, take over the world, and leave [[SealedEvilInACan Queen Metallia]] to rot in D-Point. [[spoiler:She never comes particularly close before she dies in battle and gets supplanted by a new catspaw.]]

* ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMonstrosity'' has Scorponok take this role. Of course [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim instead of killing Megatron]] he [[BondVillainStupidity exiles him]] to [[DeathWorld Junkion]] in an attempt to make himself seem more fearsome. Of course Megatron survives and feeds Scroponok to the Terrorcons for it. When Scorponok was next seen chronologically, he'd quit the Decepticons altogether and was off conning other species to build new weapons for him, at which point he'd promptly destroy them.

* Wrestling/MercedesMartinez was this to Wrestling/IvelisseVelez during the latter's second run as SHINE Champion. Martinez had ''never'' really spoken well of Velez and despite joining her Sicarias stable, continued to try to win Velez's title and relied on her own Trifecta without the other Sicarias. This clear potential threat [[HangingSeparately took attention away]] from a more covert but active one as Amber O'Neil of the rival C4 stable was turning Amanda Rodriguez into [[TheMole a mole]] within Las Sicarias. Only Wrestling/TheaTrinidad voiced any suspicions but she didn't think to raise them to the other Sicarias until ''[[PoorCommunicationKills after]]'' Rodriguez attacked [[Wrestling/BlackRose Rosa Negra]] with a chair to distract Velez from [=LuFisto=].

Alex Shelley was betrayed by Wrestling/AustinAries, who was betrayed by Wrestling/RoderickStrong, who was betrayed by Davey Richards, who was betrayed by Kyle O'Reilly.O'Reilly, who was betrayed by Adam Cole(though in the latter case, Cole had already surpassed O'Reilly [[GreenEyedMonster but was afraid]] O'Reilly might be [[TookALevelInBadass catching back up to him]]).


Added DiffLines:

* Another ROH example with Adam Cole, the former "leader" of The Kingdom, the promotion's primary opposition to Wrestling/BulletClub. After Wrestling/KennyOmega forcibly took over Bullet Club, it was decided the best way to handle the longstanding Cole problem would be to appease him by throwing their entire support behind making him ROH Champion. Himself being a BastardUnderstudy, Omega probably should have known this wasn't going to work and Cole turned out to be much more blatant in his power grabs than Omega ever had been, going so far as to delay Omega's reentry into the United States so he could keep lording over the ROH Bullet Club members unopposed. To this end, Cole was kicked out in favor of ''another'' Bullet Club enemy, Wrestling/MartyScurll, who they believed could be appeased with money, and the more loyal Wrestling/{{Cody|Rhodes}} was moved into Cole's position.

When he returns to reclaim his control of this changelings, she's not happy about becoming a lieutenant again. [[spoiler:So she tries to usurp power from him. It ends poorly.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:In ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', D'vorah turns out to be this for Kotal Kahn, who in turn overthrew Mileena and became Outworld's new emperor. She actually is TheMole for Quan Chi and Shinnok. And her arcade ending clearly shows that she [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder betrayed Shinnok by killing him]] and using his corpse as an incubator for creating god-Kytinn hybrids, and she uses them to take over the realms. Ultimately, D'Vorah's loyalty is not to any Outworlder, Netherrealmer or Earthrealmer, but to ''herself'' only.]]

* The {{Trope Namer|s}} is the most famous example, a Decepticon who is, in most versions, TheDragon to Megatron. His treacherous goals could not be more obvious.
