Compare DetectivePatsy, the crime/mystery equivalent. May overlap with MacGuffinDeliveryService or KansasCityShuffle. If the hero ''knew'' he was being played this may be a case of OutGambitted. If not, then the hero is an UnwittingPawn. The realization that the heroes were being used will often lead, not entirely justifiably, to NiceJobBreakingItHero. Then again, when/if the hero overcomes the resulting HeroicBSOD and saves the day, it can become NiceJobFixingItVillain
