** ''Manga/{{Judge}}'', by the same author, is even worse. The culprit? [[spoiler: Hiroyuki, the main character]]. Not only is there only a single, extremely subtle, clue towards this, but the vast majority of the manga contradicts it (most blatantly [[spoiler: any time we see Hiro's thoughts, which outright bring things up that logically never happened]]) and the motive is [[InsaneTrollLogic utterly nonsensical]].

* ''Manga/{{Doubt}}'' has the revelation on who the [[ManBehindTheMan mastermind]] is. It's [[spoiler:Rei]], a character that was shown to be [[FakingTheDead dead]] much earlier on. The only reason to explain how this character is alive, despite the corpse being on full display for more than a page is, they simply faked it [[spoiler:and Rei used her hypnotizing abilities to fool everyone]]. Aside from coming out of nowhere and being badly written, said character's motive comes across as a NietzscheWannabe, but ultimately fails. A disappointing revelation, when the story had been going well beforehand and [[spoiler:Mitsuki]] being the villain was done well.

* The events of the Franchise/{{BIONICLE}} story serials are [[WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants deliberately made up on the spot with the least amount of planning]]. The only thing the writer plans ahead is to make sure every chapter ends with a cliffhanger.

* The first issue of ''ComicBook/DcRebirth's Detective Comics'' reveals that Kate Kane (Batwoman) has known that her cousin Bruce Wayne is Batman for a year and a half. There is no explanation given whatsoever for her knowing, except that "he's her cousin." That doesn't mean much when the two have barely ever interacted, both in and out of costume, and Batman has gone to great lengths to keep his identity secret. Not only that, but Kate has never demonstrated any detective skills; she always has someone doing that stuff ''for her''.

* Many fans of ''Anime/{{Kiznaiver}}'' saw [[spoiler: Nico's crush on Tenga and Tenga's crush on Chidori]] as this. There was little to almost no hinting, and what little foreshadowing was there could be interpreted in many ways due to how vague they were. Most of Nico's moments with [[spoiler: Tenga] could be simply viewed as she being happy with their newly formed friendship and only were seen like that through ShippingGoggles.

* Shigure Kosaka from ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' uses actual telekinesis as her ultimate technique, though limited to control her opponents weaponry. The series has never even hinted that supernatural abilities of the sort are possible, and being a long runner where everything is somewhat rooted in reality, it's ridiculous to see it now.

* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Gundam SEED]]'':
** A RoaringRampageOfRevenge deathmatch between CainAndAbel childhood friends Kira and Athrun ended when Athrun, his Gundam out of power, grappled Kira's and used his SelfDestructMechanism in a last-ditch attempt to kill him. How did he survive? A blast door sealed off the cockpit, meaning Kira was badly hurt but not dead, and he was [[AllThereInTheManual discovered by]] [[Manga/MobileSuitGundamSEEDAstray Lowe Guele]] [[AllThereInTheManual who got him medical attention]]. And yet when Kira's friends examine the ruined Strike Gundam, the cockpit is a melted ruin thanks to the heat of the blast. [[FridgeLogic So how did he survive?]]

** Kenichi defeating Sho had heavy indications of this. Kenichi was still very tired and injured from a 3vs2 fight for the first day of the tournament, then Training from hell from the Elder on the second day. Sho was clearly overpowering and outspeeding Kenichi for the entire fight, and only landed a few hits, while Sho somehow failed to deal multiple deathblows. Only Sho using [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Roar as One,]] which grants power, but makes the body and mind fall apart allowed Kenichi to land his own finishing move. Keep in mind Sho was fresh at 100%, while Kenichi was ''really'' banged up. Sure, he's always been Made of iron, but he does have limits.

** While fighting [[spoiler: Lille Barro]], Nanao Ise revealed her Zanpakuto to be [[spoiler:specifically designed to fight against Godly beings, being useless against typical foes.]] This is not helped by the vague description of "Godly" that could easily apply to the main villain of the arc.

** Blackbeard having the ability to absorb a second Devil Fruit was largely this. There was a bit of foreshadowing, but no real explanation was offered for how it's possible. Even supposing his Devil Fruit's abilities could be construed to give him Devil Fruit extraction (and it'd take some really wild thinking to get that), it's stated that the reason he can survive two abilities is because Blackbeard himself is somehow unique, not his Devil Fruit. They don't say ''how'' he's unique, just that he is.
