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.

* 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''.]]
