* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' episode "Let's Play Trap-Trap" has a confusing ending, where Quack Quack is seen [[ItMakesSenseInContext eating a pile of yogurt]] after the events of the episode. It's never made clear to the viewers whether he was hallucinating them or really eating.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Sandor Clegane is left crippled and grievously wounded many miles from help, but his death is not confirmed. The ambiguity is increased by the actor's absence from a round-table interview featuring those whose characters had been killed in Season 4.
** Ser Alliser Thorne takes a serious wound and is dragged away in "The Watchers on the Wall", leaving it unclear whether he survives until the Season 5 premiere, "The Wars to Come".
** The abductor at the end of "High Sparrow" doesn't specify ''which'' queen he's taking his captive to, which is a matter of life and death.
** "Sons of the Harpy" ends with two characters collapsing from their wounds, but not necessarily dead. Unfortunately, TrailersAlwaysSpoil.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/FiveNightsAtFreddys'':
** The event that happens in ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4''[='=]s ending is filled with ambiguity: what appears to be [[spoiler:the [[BrainFood Bite of 87]] alluded to in the original game]] has a good chunk of evidence suggesting it isn't, thanks to [[AmbiguousTimePeriod the exact year the game happens in being unclear]].
** The [[HarderThanHard Golden Freddy V. Hard Custom Night]] cutscene in ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddysSisterLocation'' has [[spoiler:Michael Afton talking to [[GreaterScopeVillain his father]] about how he "found it", "they" thought he was him, and that he should be dead, but isn't, ending with Springtrap emerging from Fazbear's Fright]]. The dialogue can be interpreted as either referencing [[spoiler:the events of ''Sister Location'' and Michael getting scooped by Ennard, or the events of ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3''[='=]s minigames and the Purple Man getting killed via the Springtrap suit (implying Michael is Springtrap, and ''not'' his father as it appeared to be)]]. Likewise, that it plays before [[spoiler:Springtrap's appearance]] makes it ambiguous if it's [[spoiler:an undead Michael talking to his father (now Springtrap), or if Michael is talking as Springtrap]].

* In the "I Am an Alien" arc of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable'', Josuke and Okuyasu come across a strange young man named Mikitaka Hazekura claiming to be [[RubberForeheadAliens an alien]], but could possibly just be [[OverlyLongGag a Stand-using prankster who doesn't know how to end a joke]]. It is never made clear which is the truth, and [[WordofGod Araki]] has never offered an answer.
** In favor of him being an alien: He has pointy, almost elf-like ears and in the manga he has long abnormally-silver hair. The Stand-granting Arrow grazed his neck, causing him to pass out, and when Josuke and Okuyasu found him he was asleep in the middle of a crop circle. Despite his shape-shifting powers he is unable to see Stands, and whenever he hears sirens he breaks out into hives and starts sweating and screaming in agony. In addition, he talks about and uses his powers as if he's had them his entire life as opposed to just receiving them the previous day. He also claims that he can't use his powers to mimic human appearances because [[IdenticalLookingAsians they all look the same to him]].
** In favor of him being a human: The Arrow only grazed him as opposed to passing through him like it did with the others, which led to some believing that was the reason for his inability to see the Stands of others. In addition, characters with stranger appearances than his have been established to be human (such as Shigechi, who lacks hair and instead has small spikes covering his scalp). Josuke met his mother who asked him if Mikitaka was tricking people into thinking he was an alien again, but Mikitaka then claimed that he had brainwashed her into thinking he was her son.

* In the first episode of ''WebVideo/DontHugMeImScared'', it's unclear whether the puppets' teacher intentionally attempted to cause them to have such a violent breakdown or honestly just wanted to inform them of creativity.

* The ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'' has several of these.
** Does Samothrace [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/fragment:scp-1173-a actually exist]], or is it [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/fragment:scp-1173-1 only a delusion]]?

** Does [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-089 SCP-089]] cause disasters to force people to make human sacrifices to it, or does it predict disasters and stop them in exchange for human sacrifices?
** Does [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1719 SCP-1719]] [[GlamourFailure reveal the true forms of monsters in human form]], or this only a bizarre optical illusion?
