* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', BigBad Griffith presents himself to the Pope of the Holy Church as God's prophesied messiah, inspiring the old man to essentially serve as his biggest hype machine, further easing his manipulative influence throughout Midland... and all the while remaining blissfully unaware of his true, vile nature.
** A lesser example, but nonetheless one that creates long-lasting consequences, is
Skull Knight attempts Knight's attempt to kill BigBad Griffith with a mystical attack. Next Volume attack, only for the latter to redirect said attack into accidentally destroying the gate that separates the physical and astral planes in the Berserk-verse. This allows Griffith uses the attack to unleash hell on earth.
