* Sideways from ''TransformersArmada'' is something of a double mole. First, he's pretending to be a goodie, then 'reveals' that he's a baddie, spends some time messing with the other baddies' heads, then later reveals that he's a different sort of baddie.

* In ''TenchiMuyo: GXP'', The Mole is [[spoiler: Erma]]. A double reveal, in that the identity of the mole is given at the beginning of the episode, but the reason why is only at the climax. [[spoiler: Ryoko Balta is a shape-shifter. Erma was, in fact, an identity of hers.]] Since this is a Tenchi series, a Heel Face Turn and joining the harem happens quickly.

* ''Manga/SoulEater'' had a mole murder Buttatake Joe, and they made a bit of a whodunnit out of it. It's set up to make us think that [[MadScientist Doctor Stein]] had done it, but the several GenreSavvy characters, decided to have him investigate. [[spoiler: He finds Justin Law, the youngest and most innocent-looking of the death scythes, is actually working for an AxCrazy human collector...and isn't that sane himself.]]

* In VinlandSaga Gunir is a mole. One of the characters states he doesn't trust him before Gunir even has a chance to leak information, so it's not a huge surprise when it's revealed.

* In ''RODTheTV'' it is eventually revealed that [[spoiler: Nenene's agent Lee Linho]] actually works for Dokusensha. This was a devastatingly effective deception, as he wasn't pretending to be a good guy; he was pretending to be completely uninvolved.

* Sara in ''StrainStrategicArmoredInfantry'' is always expected to be The Mole, especially when she swoops in to save the day in episode 4 and ''especially'' when her [[LukeIAmYourFather relationship to Ralph]] is revealed; no wonder she tried to cover it up with a new identity (but that just made it worse).

* In the ''{{Hellsing}}'' manga and (eventually) OVA [[spoiler: Walter C. Dorneaz betrays the Hellsing organization. This could be argued as a FaceHeelTurn but it is hinted as a long-plotted betrayal.]]
* Subverted in ''TanteiGakuenQ''. Everyone '''thinks''' [[TheStoic Tatsumi Hongou]] is the mole from Meiousei -aka the Pluto Organization- and that he arranged Morihiko Dan's kidnapping, but Tatsumi himself confronts the Q section people and calmly says he knows they don't trust him, that he's ''not'' the mole they're searching for, and that they should team up and help him find said mole. [[spoiler: It turns out that the mole is [[TeamMom Shino Katagiri]]. Or better said, a Meiousei agent impersonating her, as the real Shino had been kidnapped ''before'' Morihiko Dan himself was. She's later found alive and rescued.]]

* The Mole in ''{{Mahoromatic}}: Something More Beautiful'' is one the cast sees coming, but it doesn't do them much good. [[spoiler: At least, she does a HeelFaceTurn when it counted.]]

* [[spoiler:Syaoran]] from ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' is more of a FaceHeelTurn than this, because of the radical personality shift. A more straight example would be [[spoiler:Fai.]]
* In ''PokemonSpecial'', it turns out that [[spoiler:Sird]] was a mole sent by [[spoiler:Team Galactic]] to infiltrate Team Rocket and learn more about space-themed Pokemon.

* In ''{{Gravion}}'', Mizuki Tachibana, a seemingly normal (except [[{{Gainaxing}} her breasts]]) MsFanservice, turns out to be a spy for TheFederation, feeding information of the titular mecha to create their own (since they distrusted the good guys despite having the same goal of protecting Earth). She is rewarded with a life of luxury, but quickly grew miserable and bored with it, prompting her to return to the good guys.
