* 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.

* The B-movies ''Full Contact'' (1992), ''Dragon Fire'' (1993) and ''Bloodfist 2050'' (2005) all use ''exactly'' the same plot: a kickboxer who participates in the underground pit-fighting circuit in order to find the guy who has killed his brother. In each one, it turns out that the killer is the mentor who trained him.

* Lieutenant Howett in ''Film/CarryOnJack''. He hates being second-in-command to the wimpy Captain [[IronicName Fearless]], who turns away from an opportunity to fight the enemy the best that he can. When he eventually loses his thread with him, he and the rest of the sailors on their voyage organise a fake mutiny (with "unconscious" sailors covered in jam/blood) to scare the captain away, and he wins. [[spoiler:Unfortunately for him, Howett makes everything worse for the voyage, due to his greediness and BloodKnight mentality. Within at least 30 minutes of being in charge, the crew are arrested by the Spanish Armada and forced to work for them, or they'll be executed.]]
