** Jenny was sent to Sunnydale in Season 1 to keep an eye on Angel.

** Riley in [[ComicBook/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Season 8. *** Riley 8]] is a ReverseMole, actually. ** Jenny was sent to Sunnydale to keep an eye ReverseMole on Angel. Buffy's side.

** "The Web of Fear" concerns the fact that one character in the group is working for the Great Intelligence. Oddly for anyone who knows anything about ''Doctor Who'', the character clearly intended to be the primary suspect for most of the story is Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart. (The novelisation alters this by clearing him of suspicion early on.) The GenreSavvy viewer's primary suspect is probably Chorley. The actual suspect turns out to be [[spoiler: Arnold, a MauveShirt who got killed in an earlier episode and is [[TheUndead still moving around as a possessed corpse]].]]

* A minor example in one episode of ''Series/BarneyMiller'' has the squad looking a "field agent" who is working for InternalAffairs. Due to the litany of excessively trivial offenses they're cited with, they quickly figure out that it's Levitt.

* Vera from ''Series/HouseOfAnubis'', in an interesting EvilVersusEvil version, where she was pretending to like and work for Victor, when she was really on Rufus' team. However, she may have BecomeTheMask by the end of the season. That didn't stop Victor from kicking her out when he learned the truth.

That didn't stop Victor from kicking her out when he learned the truth. ** Fabian's godfather Jasper fell into this trope, as he was being blackmailed by Vera herself, making him spy on his own godson and his friends. Fabian was heartbroken upon finding out, but knew Jasper was doing it to ''protect'' him from Rufus. ** Jerome, who was also working for Rufus in the first season, was using Alfie to get information and artifacts from the Sibunas. Alfie eventually stood up to him, refusing to spy on his friends. Jerome later becomes a ReverseMole and tries to get information from Rufus to give to Sibuna. ** Early in the third season, Fabian and Patricia ''thought'' KT and Eddie were working for Victor and caused Nina's disappearance, similar to how Patricia [[CallBack thought the same of Nina earlier.]] The two of them were isolated from Sibuna for a little bit until they finally learned that their friends were trustworthy.

** [[spoiler:Ruby]] turned out to be The Mole who really wanted [[spoiler:Sam to kill Lilith, thereby releasing Lucifer from his prison]] at the end of season 4. Like [[spoiler: Ruby]] being a mole was [[SarcasmMode surprising to anyone except]] [[spoiler: Sam himself]]. ** [[spoiler: Uriel]] is revealed to be a mole killing angels in "On the Head of a Pin".
to:
** [[spoiler:Ruby]] [[spoiler:[[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk The angel Uriel]]]] turned out in their last episode to have been joined [[{{Satan}} Lucifer]]'s cause, trying to [[spoiler:recruit fellow angels to join him]] and killing those who refused. Note that the mole's successful conversions are never brought up again, making it possible that Lucifer loyalists may ''still'' be present in [[spoiler:the ranks of the Heavenly Host]] in show canon. ** The Mole who really wanted [[spoiler:Sam presentation of [[spoiler:angels as a whole, not just Uriel,]] may qualify, at least in [[spoiler:Season 4]]. They are initially portrayed as allies to the heroes whose differing view of what constitutes an "acceptable" sacrifice causes them to clash somewhat with the latter group. While they all turn out to still be reasonably sympathetic in their own ways, the season finale reveals that [[spoiler:the higher-ups in Heaven want Lucifer freed in order to kill him and create "Paradise," which is suggested by an actor for one of the characters to be a {{Dystopia}} of brainwashed human slaves, as opposed to Lucifer's vision of a [[KillAllHumans human-free]] universe]], and in subsequent seasons, even [[spoiler:angels not involved in this ploy]] are often enemies to be killed. ** ''Also'' revealed in their last episode, [[spoiler:[[TokenHeroicOrc the demon Ruby]]]] was ''another'' mole for Lucifer (not that they knew they were on the same side as the above mole or would have gotten along even if they had, due to FantasticRacism). More accurately, [[spoiler:Ruby was secretly working for demon queen Lilith, thereby releasing Lucifer whom Ruby sent Sam after to kill on Lilith's own orders, as the other demon's death was the last seal needed to be broken to release their master, Lucifer, from his prison]] at prison]]. While the end of season 4. Like [[spoiler: Ruby]] being a mole character's true loyalties and agenda was [[SarcasmMode surprising to anyone except]] [[spoiler: Sam himself]]. ** [[spoiler: Uriel]] is revealed to be a mole killing angels in "On ''long'' suspect by fans and by other characters, making this twist somewhat of an [[TheUntwist Untwist]], the Head of way it played out was a Pin".satisfying resolution. ** Abaddon played this role 50 years before the series proper; she possessed and [[DevilInDisguise impersonated]] an inductee into an ancient mystical order in order to infiltrate and spy on them, planning to destroy them completely after learning all their secrets. [[TheBadGuysWin She succeeded on all counts.]]

* ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined'': Played with in the 2000s. From the beginning of the first season the audience is aware that Boomer is a Cylon, although the crew of the ship, and Boomer herself, are not. The [[StoryArc season arc]] features her struggling with self-doubt over whether or not she's human, attempting suicide, and ultimately learning that she is in fact a Cylon. In the season finale, she seemingly sides against her kind and sets off a nuke destroying a Base Star full of other copies of her, and at that moment [[WhamEpisode the Wham]] hits; [[spoiler:as Commander Adama is meeting her in CIC and praising her for a job well done, she draws her sidearm and shoots him twice, point blank, in the chest.]] The reveal of several other characters in the season three finale includes [[spoiler: two significant moles, as well as two lower tier individuals.]] [[spoiler: Not really moles though -- their presence in the fleet turns out to be more like a punishment -- or a joke.]]

* ''{{Dollhouse}}'': The early episodes set up that there's a spy somewhere in the House, eventually revealing it to be [[spoiler: head of security Dominic]]. Notable in how the character was practically the only one fans ''hadn't'' suggested The Mole to be...''because it was such an [[DevilInPlainSight obvious choice]], [[GenreSavvy everyone assumed]] that it ruled them out.'' Oh, Joss Whedon, you insane genius. In the final episodes it is revealed that in fact [[spoiler:Boyd]], a trusted figure in Adelle's house, was the one in charge of Rossum Corporation.
