* At the end of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'' with [[spoiler: the Patriots]] seemingly all dead and their [[spoiler: AI system destroyed]], Drebin tells Otacon that he believes the world is not truly [[spoiler: free from the influence of the Patriots]]. To prove this, he writes the name of Meryl's unit (Rat Patrol 01) in the sand and makes the letters rearrange into [[spoiler: [=PATR10T=]]].
** It's actually a bit of odd FridgeLogic in that the letters don't actually form an anagram at all unless patrol is shortened to "PT" as Drebin does. PT isn't an accepted shortening of the world "patrol".
*** And the fact that a [[spoiler: Patriot-sponsored]] unit like Rat Patrol 01 would hide the name of the organization doesn't prove Drebin's point that [[spoiler: the Patriots are still controlling things]].

* The Wrestling/{{N|ew World Order}}WO in Wrestling/{{WCW}}. At their height of popularity, one of the "good guys" from WCW was giving in and joining the NWO on a weekly basis. They took over the company and anyone not in the NWO or fighting against the NWO rarely got any TV time. They took this trope so far that it actually helped destroy the company [[TruthInTelevision in real life]] as people stopped watching when it became clear the NWO was all but invincible and any illusion of competition was shattered.

** Also, although they can't really make claim of it, Tyranids use Genestealers to infest the population of a target world, slowly infiltrating important positions. They literately have people everywhere.

** Before that, a semi-early 2-episode-arc of ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]]'' featured a paranoid captain warning Picard of "strange happenings" with Starfleet Command. It turned out to be caused by a race of mind-controlling parasites that had already infiltrated every level of SFC's upper echelons, and was spreading out through the most prominant captains to be able to spread even further. Picard and Riker end up blasting what looks like a queen, spend the last five minutes of the show wondering how bad things have become... [[CanonDiscontinuity and then the entire situation is never brought up again.]]

** More notable is that when M began to interrogate White, the man laughed on how his organization lived in constant worry of MI-6, the CIA or other intelligence organizations always on their trail and looking over their shoulder "but you don't even know we exist!"

* ''Series/JessicaJones'' BigBad Kilgrave has a CompellingVoice that allows him to command anyone to do anything for a twelve-hour period. In other words, he can make anyone his ManchurianAgent with a few words, essentially allowing him to be anywhere he wants at any time. This is milked for all the ParanoiaFuel that it's worth, with Jessica constantly being on the defensive around friends, potential clients, and total strangers.

* A version appears in ''[[GrantMorrisonsBatman Batman, Inc]]'' when Bruce Wayne explains that criminals will never have to wonder where Batman is... because Batman is everywhere. This is as a group of Bat-bots foil an attack by some criminals on the locale where he's making the announcement to a reporter. (He knew the attack was coming).

* ''{{Guyver}}''. The Zoanoids are everywhere.
-->'''Agito:''' ''"You probably thought Chronos was simply a secret organization, but we are very public. Classmates, politicians, ambassadors. It is an international community all linked through the clandestine operations of the Chronos Corporation. A simple matter like the attack on the school is easily covered with key positions in the media, and the police are controlled by us. We're everywhere. We're everyone. The Earth is now within our grasp... a possession of Chronos."''
* ''GrapplerBaki'', possibly inspired by ''Film/FightClub'', pulls a similar stunt after a guy in a fighting club got killed. The waiter, the police, the owner of the amusement park, all of them are part of the club.
* Reasonably early on in ''TwentiethCenturyBoys'', Kenji learns that the cult lead by mysterious BigBad Friend has members in high places, making his fight against them harder.
