Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/{{Evangelion 303}}'': Although Gendo seems to be less abusive than his canon self, he keeps a secret agenda and he’s using everyone –including his son and his son’s fiancée- to carry it out.

Added DiffLines:

* Shinji and Asuka figuring out that they're unwitting pawns is an important subplot in ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust''. When they open up to each other and start talking about their childhoods and their piloting experiences, they figure out that Gendo and SEELE are keeping things from them and realize that they're being used to further some kind of sinister scheme.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': [[BigBad Dr. Hell]] was [[DragonWithAnAgenda Archduke Gorgon]]'s unwitting pawn. Gorgon wanted to destroy both Dr. Hell and [[HumongousMecha Mazinger-Z]], so he helped Hell to fight [[TheHero Kouji Kabuto]] and his allies because the constant conflict weakened and wore the heroes down, and as soon as Hell stopped being useful, he abandoned him and let him die (or killed him personally in some versions) while his [[{{Robeast}} War Beasts]] finished Mazinger-Z off.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'':
** Megumi Kunzama is a reporter that believes she’s getting the scoop on NERV. In reality, Gendo and Fuyutsuki are using her, leaking harmless or false information to her. And she’s no idea.
** All Children are [[spoiler:Gendo and Yui's]] unwitting pawns, since [[spoiler:they're using the pilots to fight [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos the Great Old Ones and the Outer Gods]] and steal their powers in order to carry their plans forward.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Do|nPachi}}DonPachi'' presents itself as your usual "human military vs. alien invasion" {{Vertical Scrolling|Shooter}} BulletHell shooter. That is, unless you unlock the 2nd loop and [[spoiler:your commander reveals that he tricked you into wiping out ''your own comrades'' and then declares his intent to [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness kill you with his special forces]].]]

* Who in ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' '''isn't''' playing into [[BigBad Fei Wong Reed's]] plans, again? [[spoiler:Kurogane]] might be the least manipulated of the group, but he's not exactly immune, either. He ''is'' the (positive kind of) pawn of [[XxxHolic Ichihara Yuuko]], though and thus serves as the counterpart to [[spoiler: [[BrokenBird poor]] [[TheMole Fai]]]].

* When [[TheThrawnTrilogy Grand Admiral Thrawn]] from the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse is involved, characters become suckers by being so afraid that they play right into his hands through their caution, the best example being that when they need a certain device from one of two locations, they leak info that they will go to one, therefore showing him they are actually going to the other. Some characters in the HandOfThrawn duology are wary of doing ''anything'' lest they be doing what he wants.
** The Rebel [[spoiler: clones]] in ''Literature/GalaxyOfFear''. They're friendly enough, if kind of vacant, and tell our heroes to stay around, their leader is out right now but he'll be back soon and they should meet him. Turns out their leader is [[spoiler: an actual DarthVaderClone]]. But they have no idea that he should be their enemy - he's the one who gathered [[spoiler: the skin and hair samples they were created from, and they have no memories about what being a Rebel means or what the Empire is.]]

** In ''Literature/DarkLordTheRiseOfDarthVader'', rather than capture the fugitive Jedi quietly, Moff Tarkin allows them to slip past an Imperial checkpoint in their disguised stolen shuttle, so that when they land on Kashyyyk he can accuse the Wookiees of harboring fugitives as a pretext to invade the planet and round up thousands of Wookiee captives--perfect slaves for his Death Star project.

*** Averted, and very much so. Light understands perfectly well what he is to Ryuk, which is why he makes sure to stay interesting in his clever ScheherezadeGambit.

In the manga, his thoughts before [[spoiler: his death]] leave it unambiguous that it wasn't the outcome he considered.
