* In the Robert Ludlum novel ''The Prometheus Deception,'' Nick Bryson is an operative for the Directorate, a top-secret division of the U.S. government. Five years after his forced retirement, he's tracked down by the FBI director who informs him of the truth: The Directorate was founded by the KGB, Bryson's parents were killed to set him on this path, his foster "uncle" an enemy operative and even his beloved girlfriend was in on it. Every single mission he risked his life for and felt proud of actually was working against U.S. interests and thus his entire life has been one grand lie to be used by the enemy.

* WesternAnimation/KimPossible found herself in this position in ''So The Drama'', when it was revealed that [[RomanticFalseLead Erik]] was really [[TheMole a "synthodrone"]] working for Drakken. As Ron observed, "Drakken didn't win, he played you." An even more direct case was in the episode "Hidden Talents", where Drakken created fake messages from [[MissionControl Wade]] (as well as sending a virus to the real Wade) to get Kim to [[MacGuffinDeliveryService bring him]] one of Dementor's inventions. He also attempted to do it a second time after he forgot to tell Kim to get the adaptor plug, but the second time didn't work as well due to Wade debugging his computer.
* Harold in ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Total Drama Action]]'', when choosing to listen to ''Courtney and Duncan'' of all people, in order to vote off [[spoiler:[=LeShawna=], ''his love interest'']].

** Mehrunes Dagon, the Daedric Prince of [[DestroyerDeity Destruction]], is said to be one by Haskill, the chamberlain of [[MadGod Sheogorath]], in an [[https://www.imperial-library.info/node/2234 obscure text]]. Haskill describes Dagon as "the pawn of every Prince of true power, the dupe of every schemer in the Nineteen Voids." Essentially, whenever one of the other PowersThatBe in the setting wants to accomplish something that involves destruction of some sort, they get Dagon to do the heavy lifting, and thus they [[VillainWithGoodPublicity pass all the blame]] on Dagon who is already widely considered a GodOfEvil.

** In general, ''Elder Scrolls'' [[PlayerCharacter protagonists]] have this happen to them frequently. Thankfully, the only manipulators who [[AnyoneCanDie you can't get bloody revenge against]] in these games are the untouchable [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]], and they at least compensate you for your work with [[InfinityPlusOneSword cool artifacts]].

** Cersei Lannister. After transforming the Sparrows into the Faith Militant and giving them free rain to imprison any ''deviants'' towards the Gods, which ends up getting both Loras and Margaery captured, Cersei confidently assumes that she is controlling them like puppets. It never occurs to her until it's too late that the now all powerful fundamentalist organisation would imprison her for her own deviant lifestyle once they no longer needed her.

** In ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', once Mario collects every Crystal Star except the one the X-Nauts found before the game started, Grodus, leader of the X-Nauts, creates a plan to give the Crystal Star he has to [[TheDragon Lord Crump]], who he has lost all trust in, so Mario can take it from him and open the Thousand-Year Door for Grodus while disposing of Crump. Unfortunately for Grodus, upon achieving his goal of reviving the Shadow Queen, it's revealed that Beldam, leader of the Shadow Sirens that were working for him, had lied to Grodus about the Queen becoming his servant so he would try and use her to TakeOverTheWorld, thus making the entire X-Naut organization a pawn to Beldam.
