* 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.

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' had one through several sites (of which only http://www.arkhamcare.com/ still appears to be up)... [[spoiler:Where you break the entire Arkham security, being rewarded with villain and other character bios... Until, at the end, the Riddler sends you an e-mail, thanking you for basically setting up the entire plot of the game proper! NiceJobBreakingItHero.]]

* ''[[http://www.projectenemyunknown.com Project: Enemy Unknown]]'' (which has been reworked as ''[[http://www.citizenskywatch.com Citizen Skywatch]]'') was created to help promote 2K's [[VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown reboot]] of the ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}}'' series. Prior to revealing what it was for, some of the guesses included a new ''VideoGame/BioShock'' game, a game known only as ''Agent'', and (of all things) a new ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' game.

* ''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, which has yet to be found. However, in July 2016 Alex Hirsch released a series of clues that lead to a world-wide scavenger hunt fans are calling "Cipher Hunt".
