Please list your favorite master plotters, strategists and schemers from whatever medium of fiction you choose, as well as a description of why they're so impressive. Can be any number.

To get things started we have these two. I will add more if I think of any.

Albus Dumbledore

JK Rowling on him

“Although Dumbledore seems to be so benign for six books, he’s quite a Machiavellian figure, really. He’s been pulling a lot of strings. Harry has been his puppet,” she explained. “When Snape says to Dumbledore [toward the end of ’Hallows’], ’We’ve been protecting [Harry] so he could die at the right moment’ — I don’t think in book one you would have ever envisioned a moment where your sympathy would be with Snape rather than Dumbledore.”

Nice! Baelish is awesome, one of my favourite GoT characters.

I would have to say Makishima Shogo from Psycho-Pass

I guess it's unnecessary to explain why I pick her ;)

His whole thing is out-scheming everyone else in the universe.
He is weak, weird, sad, and crazy, but somehow he will trick you, and you will die.
I mean, the guy defeated the devil. Like, the devil.

I love Baelish, and ASOIAF is my favourite series ever, but if The Doctor appeared in Westeros in his little blue box, Petyr would look confused and incompetent by comparison. He'd just kind of come in, take control, and dominate everyone's plans and ideas. Sure, he'd probably get captured and threatened with decapitation first, but it'd work out in the end. Somehow. Probably.
