Books where villain is more powerful/smarter/in control then he first appears?

I have always enjoyed stories where that bad guy is more than anyone, including the reader, knows. Usually this happens with the good guys, but I have always found the opposite more enjoyable. A good example of this is Flagg from Steven Kings The Eyes of the Dragon. Thinking of Dragon's also reminds me of the sorcerer from Piers Anthony's book Dragon's Gold. .....generalization of a character spoilers...
Spoiler:
I can not remember his name, but during the book you never really get to see him as anything other than a smart man who tricks people into thinking he is some great sorcerer. Even the reader assumes he is full of shit...the last fight this is proven WRONG. WAY wrong in fact.


So, any books stand out in your mind of having characters like this?
