* From ''Provost's Guard'' in the Literature/TortallUnivers, [[spoiler: Tunstall]], though only for the second half of the final book. He didn't ''want'' it to go so far, but it got out of hand, quickly.

* In ''Literature/TheDragonWaiting'', Gregory uncovers evidence of a conspiracy at the English court and takes it to [[spoiler:the Duke of Buckingham]] -- who, unfortunately for Gregory, is in on it.
-->"Your Grace." He reached into his bag, produced the translation of Mancini's letter. "We have a great deal of trouble. I hope that these are men you can trust."\\
"Yes, Professor, they are absolutely loyal to me," [[spoiler:Buckingham]] said, and signaled for his men to close the door.

** Wrathion became this for Horde players in ''Mists of Pandaria''. He sent them to defeat Garrosh to "save the Horde" while fully believing the Alliance would subsequently subjugate it. He's rather dismissive of whatever complaints the player might have had about being used.
** On the Timeless Isle Kairoz had players empower his Vision of Time to see visions of the future if either the Horde or Alliance proved victorious. In a subsequent novel Kairoz used the Visions to allow Garrosh's escape to Draenor, intent on using the Vision to build an army across multiple timelines.

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' the troll Yeh'kinya guided players through deciphering a prophecy about the return of Hakkar the Soulflayer and how to seal him away. Under his guidance players confronted the weakened soul of Hakkar and sealed it in an ancient vessel, supposedly to bind him. In fact Yeh'kinya knew that sealing Hakkar into the vessel was a necessary step to allow his rebirth, leading to Hakkar's rise in Zul'gurub.
** Drakuru in Grizzly Hills seems like a reasonable troll compared to his bloodthirsty kin so helping him in fighting them off seems like the smart move. In fact his directions resulted in the trolls losing control of their main defense against the Scourge, hastening their empire's fall and gaining Drakuru praise from the Lich King.

* ''VideoGame/PonyIsland'': [[spoiler:Subverted. The Daemons tell you the Hopeless Soul isn't to be trusted, and if you collect all the tickets...he still does absolutely nothing to seem he isn't on the up-and-up, he just decides to become the TrueFinalBoss to give a satisfying conclusion to the completionist run.]]
** Played straight, actually. [[spoiler: After you beat the game then tamper certain variables in the save file, come back into the game and hit continue will lead you to a screen where the typical 'devil head' sprite will appear blue and talk first with the sound effect of Lucifer, berating the player messing with game files, but afterwards switching to the sound......of the Lost Soul. Then it will let you in on a secret -- sometimes he talks "in different voices", and he asks you to "not to tell [[{{God}} dad]]".]]

* In ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'', Rip Hunter is revealed to have absconded with the ''[[TimeMachine Waverider]]'' against the orders of the Time Masters to try and stop Vandal Savage. His mentor then shows up and tries to convince Rip to go back, so the Time Masters can start repairing the damage to the timeline done by Rip and his team. Mick Rory, who has been listening in on the conversation, immediately tells him that the Time Master plans to betray and kill him, along with the rest of the team. Rip is reluctant to believe him, but he does bring backup during their next meeting. It turns out Mick was right. The Time Master shows up with the BountyHunter Chronos, who was paid to kill Rip and the others. Mick and Jax/Stein save him.

* ''VideoGame/UltimaVII'' plays with this a bit by linking it to a ChainOfDeals. In order to contact the Time Lord, whose help is necessary to stop [[BigBad the Guardian]] from dominating Britannia, you need to get help from the Wisps -- interdimensional information-brokers who, in exchange for the help, want you to acquire information for another client of theirs. The information in question is a notebook on the Guardian and [[PathOfInspiration his puppet church, the Fellowship]], composed by one of the [[OnlySaneMan few Britannian scholars]] aware of the Guardian's existence. Turns out, their client ''is'' the Guardian, who, having found out what his opposition knows about him, then has him murdered.

Unfortunately, this trusted expert is secretly one of the bad guys. Sometimes he may be the BigBad himself! What makes him different from your average [[TheMole Mole]] is the degree to which the heroes require his assistance -- he's not a regular part of TheTeam, but he's the only person who can give exactly the help needed.

They appear to be benevolent {{Mentors}} or ReasonableAuthorityFigure, until their TheReveal shows their true nature. On rare occasions, ''everyone'' of importance whose help the hero seeks is a mole; the hero's only real allies are the ones with no power or influence.
