* '''Exaggerated''': Everybody in the story is [[FlockOfWolves secretly working for someone else]].
** Alternatively, Bob is [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder working for more sides than he can keep track of]] at any given time.

* '''Parodied''': Bob is [[MostDefinitelyNotAVillain so obviously a mole]] that it's ridiculous nobody else notices. For example, in a FunnyAnimal work, he is literally a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mole_(animal) burrowing mammal of the family Talpidae]].
** Alternately, the mole has a large brown [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mole_%28skin_marking%29 melanocytic nevus]] on his face or elsewhere on his body, a la ''AustinPowers''.
* '''Deconstructed''': The psychological aspects of being a mole are discussed. We see the angst Bob suffers over having to betray the people he befriended.
* '''Reconstructed''': Bob is the focus character, or even the protagonist. His {{backstory}} and psychological issues are studied; he has an opportunity to make a HeelFaceTurn... but doesn't. In the end, he carries out his betrayal exactly as planned, surprising everybody.
