** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' reveals several awful truths about elven history. A recurring story is how the original elven homeland was destroyed by the Tevinter Imperium. [[spoiler:It was not. A survivor of that time reveals that the elves destroyed themselves in a civil war. Tevinter just enslaved the survivors out of opportunism. The vallasin? The markings Dalish elves wear as a mark of adulthood? Arlathan nobles put them on their slaves as tribute to the nobles' patron gods. Last, the elves say that their gods, including [[TopGod Mythal]] were imprisoned by Fen'Harel, the Dread Wolf. The truth is that Mythal and Fen'Harel were and remain good friends. Mythal was betrayed and murdered by someone else and her remains possessed Flemeth, who Mythal saw as a kindred spirit.]]

''Trespasser'' reveals that their "gods" were just a bunch of ''very'' powerful mages who let that power go to their heads and that ''they'' were the ones who killed Mythal because she tried to get them to stop abusing their power. Fen'Harel only sealed them away to stop the madness.]]

* There are two awful truths in ''Literature/TheNightGardener'':
** The tree and its malevolent guardian are causing the Windsors (and Molly) to waste away, and the only way to deal with it is to stop hoping things will get better and get away from it (or destroy it).
** Molly and Kip's parents put them in the last lifeboat after the crew of the ship they had booked passage on left them to die in the middle of a storm. Most likely they drowned when the ship went down. Molly personally considers this an awful truth — she knows the likelihood of it from the beginning, but her brother was feverish when it happened and didn't see it, and she couldn't bear to tell him. Then the tree begins giving her letters from them...

** In case 2 of the second game, the AwfulTruth is that [[spoiler:Morgan Fey, Mia and Maya's aunt, is scheming to get Maya framed for murder so that her own daughter, Pearl, can become Master of Kurain village (although Morgan herself is not the murderer). This is hard enough on Mia and Maya, who loved their aunt, but it's even worse for Pearl herself; Mia arranges to have Pearl channel her during the second day of Maya's trial so that she won't have to see Morgan being exposed as an accomplice]].

** In the fourth and final case, the truth is very simple, but devastating - [[spoiler:the man you've been forced to defend in court is guilty as sin, and you can't weasel out of defending him of a crime you know he committed.]]

** In ''Dual Destinies'', Edgeworth is callous/brave enough to say that the facts of the case point to an Awful Truth for Athena Cykes -- that she killed her mother and/or dismembered her dead body by innocently trying to 'fix' her. Everyone reacts in horror when they realize what Edgeworth is about to say, and what makes it worse is that he's partially correct. (Fortunately, the reality isn't quite so bad).
