* In the old C64 game ''[[VideoGame/TheBardsTaleTrilogy Bard's Tale 2]]'', the goal was to find the pieces of the Destiny Wand in order to defeat the big bad Lagoth Zanta. Every time you found a piece, you needed to get hints to the location of the next one by paying a character known as the sage. [[spoiler: Once you assemble the wand, you discover that the sage was in fact Lagoth Zanta all along.]]

* ''VideoGame/FullThrottle'' had Adrian Ripburger, who murders his employer Malcolm Corley in order to kill biker culture by turning the world's last dedicated motorcycle manufacturer into a maker of minivans. What sets ''Full Throttle'' apart from most examples of the trope is that ''Full Throttle'' actually spells out the reason Corley keeps Ripburger around. Corley is primarily a visionary and idealist, but a self-aware one, who realizes he needs someone with business savvy and killer instinct (like Ripburger) to keep him from chasing too many wild dreams and running his company into the ground. Corley also makes no attempt to hide his personal loathing for Ripburger, though he claims to respect him on a professional level.

* The Oracle of delphi in the ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' series is this trope, just as she was in ClassicalMythology. Often she gives vague ExactWords style prophesies, or the heroes assume she's talking about one person, when she means another, after all she only speaks in prophesies, so she can't just tell them outright. [[spoiler:after she is finally released from her AgeWithoutYouth immortality and allowed to die, Apollo appoints Rachel Elizabeth Dare to be the new oracle. She still holds this position in ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus''.]]

** Grand Maester Pycelle will work for the strongest side, who are House Lannister. Jaime, who used to be a bodyguard of the previous regime, notes that prior to the Sack of Kings Landing by the Lannister armies, he advised King Aerys to open the gates to ensure them a victory, whereas Varys advised against it.

He tries to do the same sort of scheming when Tyrion is acting as Hand of the King by going to Cersei behind his back. Since Tyrion is much smarter, he devises his own plot to uncover any disloyal advisors in the Small Council and subsequently strips Pycelle of all power and has him thrown in a cell.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Many of Roose Bolton's moves become this in hindsight, such as sending the 500 men to Winterfell to supposedly take it back. They burn Winterfell in order to cover Roose's bases.
