A frequent "twist" is that the person doing the most to urge on the Witch Hunt is actually one of the enemy group, knowingly (in which case he's conducting it to get rid of his rivals, or to spread chaos among the populace, or just to divert suspicion away from himself, regardless of how well this last strategy holds up to FridgeLogic) or otherwise (TomatoInTheMirror). Of course, this twist relies on the enemy group [[TiltingAtWindmills actually existing in the first place]].

They knew they just had to cut off the power, and the people would kill each other in their witch hunt.]]
