** Note, checking the Elements tab in console reveals a face, and the words "ISMEAT", if you stretch the console bit enough. Someone investigate on this, please.

* The podcast ''Podcast/{{RABBITS}}'' takes its title from the unofficial name of what host Carly Parker describes as "an ARG that predates the term ARG". The earliest of nine known modern iterations of Rabbits dates back to 1959, with hints suggesting the game dates back centuries, of not millennia. The podcast focuses on Carly's efforts to learn about the game and determine its role in the disappearance of her childhood friend.

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' had a particularly infamous one regarding the then-to-be-released 23rd hero, Sombra. She was originally lightly hinted at by developers as a stealth hero, but clues started to get revealed in several promotional content for other things, starting from the announcement video of the ''22nd'' hero, Ana, with an absolutely staggering amount of decoding by fans, [[https://wiki.gamedetectives.net/index.php?title=Sombra_ARG documented here.]] Unfortunately, problems started when it seemed that they solved the puzzles too fast, and [[ArcFatigue there were multiple long droughts of new info,]] none of which were even substantial (all that was learned about her character up until her reveal was that she's Spanish and [[TheCracker a hacker]]), culminating in a discovery of a mysterious website with a countdown that lasted ''3 months,'' which by the end revealed... more clues. [[InternetBackdraft The fans weren't happy about that,]] especially since she was later revealed at Blizzcon 2016 anyway, [[ShaggyDogStory something planned from the very start that would've been the case regardless of whether or not the ARG was actually solved.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' ended with Dipper giving a speech encouraging the viewer to go out and look for Gravity Falls somewhere in the woods. In addition, a cryptogram hidden on the bus that takes Dipper and Mabel home talks about a treasure hidden in the woods, and the last thing shown on the series is a real life statue of the villain Bill Cipher sitting somewhere in a forest[[note]]during the GrandFinale, Bill's physical form was TakenForGranite as he entered what he assumed to be Ford Pines's mind, unaware that he's falling into a trap[[/note]]. All of this inspired fans of the series to search for the statue. Then in July 2016, Alex Hirsch released a series of clues that lead to a world-wide scavenger hunt known as "Cipher Hunt", which lead to fans not only finding the Bill statue outside the town of Reedsport, OR (though it had to be moved to a new location due to a dispute over the property on which it rested), but Alex offering to release deleted scenes and the original Gravity Falls pilot online.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': As part of the Tokyo Game Show 2015 marketing, the Japanese fanbase was tasked with tracking down and scanning QR codes at various places throughout the country, presented as finding information for the police force against the thief team. Scanning these unlocked the party's character bios on the official website for everyone to view.

** Its SpiritualSuccessor, ''Film/TenCloverfieldLane'', had an ARG of its own. It follows John Goodman's character, Howard Stambler, [[http://tagruato.jp/employee_of_the_month_2016_february.php an employee of Tagruato]] whose job as a telemetry analyst involves [[ArcWelding working with satellites]]. Following a URL from the t-shirt on his picture (Radio Man 70) leads to [[http://funandprettythings.com/ a website that belongs to his daughter Megan]] that contains a few hidden messages, revealing that he has a history of building bomb shelters and seems to know something huge enough that he's warning her of it and wants her to get into one of the shelters he built.

* While the anime version of the original ''Anime/YuGiOh'' is similar (or identical in some ways) to the manga, the plots, characters, and at times, history of the settings differ greatly between anime and manga for ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', ''Anime/YuGioh5Ds'', and ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal''. This Trope can apply there.
