Unwitting Pawns are characters that are being manipulated by a major villain. Usually after the pawn is betrayed by the major villain, one of three things can happen. They are either killed, team up with their enemy, or form their own faction. Sometimes the pawn important to the true villain or even more powerful, and merely killing the pawn can ruin the true villain's plans.

There are several forms in which a pawn can take:

  • The Fake Mastermind: Individuals who believe they are in control of everything and have planned it all, when unbenowist to them, they are doing something someone else wants them to do via manipulation, be they aware of the true mastermind or not. Examples are The Council of Disney Villains and Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik
  • The Expandable Right-Hand:
  • The Hypnotized, Brainwashed or Possessed: Individuals who do the bidding of someone else because they have been hypnotized, brainwashed or are being possessed by someone. Examples are Raiden, Ryuko Matoi, and Seth
