* ''FanFic/RosarioVampireBrightestDarkness'': In Act III, Akua and Kahlua aid Kiria in his plan to rewrite history with the Chrono Displacement spell, intending to give their father Issa a top spot in the new world once humanity is subjugated. In the final chapter, it's revealed that Kiria's plan would ensure that ''he'' would be the sole dark lord, and part of said plan would have Akua and Kahlua, and possibly Moka and Kokoa as well, infected with [[PsychoSerum Blackheart]] and then sent back in time to kill Issa and destroy his empire from within, thus ensuring that Kiria would rule unopposed. The two promptly switch sides and spend the next act trying to atone for their mistake.

* ''FanFic/RosarioVampireBrightestDarkness'': In ''FanFic/RosarioVampireBrightestDarkness Act III, III'':
** During the course of the fic, Kuyou attacks Yokai Academy with the intent to get revenge on Tsukune for his previous defeat. It's ultimately revealed that Hokuto personally manipulated Kuyou into doing so by exploiting his hatred of Tsukune, using the resulting chaos as a distraction so he could break into the secured levels of the academy and steal an ArtifactOfDoom for use in his EvilPlan. Hokuto gets what he wanted, and Kuyou is KilledOffForReal by Tsukune.
** As revealed near the end of the act,

* Similarly, the Adeptus Mechanicus is all but stated to (knowingly, in the case of the higher-ups) worship the Void Dragon as the Omnissiah (rather than an aspect of the Emperor). The C'tan being on par with the Ruinous Powers in terms of BigBad and the Mechanicus being responsible for humanity being able to travel the stars and defend themselves, this is as bad as it sounds. This also leads to a lot of enthusiastic Mechanicus dropping in on tomb worlds, waking up the Necrons as they poke around, and the next thing you know there's yet ''another'' system or two lost to the Imperium.

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'' subverted this. NERV’s staff is Gendo’s unwitting pawns, and the UN is SEELE’s one. However, Shinji pretends to be also clueless, although he knows what they’re exactly planning, and he warned the Japanese Government via Kaji.

* In ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty: VideoGame/ModernWarfare2'', [[spoiler:[[GeneralRipper General Shepherd]] is revealed to have set up a five-year gambit to pit the USA and Russia against each other, so that he may lead the USA to the status as permanent ultimate world power, and be known worldwide as a "hero" for it. And he doesn't give two shits over how many millions of innocents get in his way. The man made all of the US, UK, & Russia into his Unwitting Pawns, including the player characters, one of whom (Roach) he kills after sending him to retrieve the evidence that would have exposed him as the mastermind behind the plot. Even though [[SpannerInTheWorks Price & Soap managed to kill him]], it's not stated if Shepherd's plan has already succeeded. Hints suggest that [[DownerEnding it]] [[ShootTheShaggyDog did]].]]
** The third game subtly reveals that [[spoiler: Shepherd was also this to Makarov, who had been feeding false information to the former and had actually caused Shepherd's StartOfDarkness via the nuke detonation that he ordered.]]

* In ''Tabletop/{{Warhammer}}'', it's strongly implied that Bretonnia's whole "Cult of the Lady" religion is a complete sham, set up by the Wood Elves who dwell in the forest in the south of the country so they have a nice, easily-manipulated buffer zone to protect them from the world. [[spoiler:''The End Times'' reveals that, yes, the Lady is actually the Elven goddess Lileath.]]

* ''Fanfic/LastChildOfKrypton'': Shinji was meant to be Gendo’s unsuspecting puppet, but his inability to synch with an Evangelion prevented this. The remaining characters were the paws of Gendo and SEELE until Kaji blew the lid off their little conspiracy.
