* An in-universe example occurs in "WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda3" when an older panda breaks Po's dumpling-eating record and reveals that he lost his son years ago. Po tells him that he lost his father when he was a baby. They wish each other good luck and start to walk away. Everyone else who hears the exchange starts to shake their heads.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'': "What? Are you telling me that the serious, pale-skinned man who uses a red scouter-like machine on his right eye, wears a robe with eyeballs in it and is constantly talking on behalf of Team Plasma is actually a villain and Team Plasma's real leader? And the guy who looks like a younger version of him is actually his son!? HOW WOULD I KNOW?" To be fair, N may not ''actually'' be Ghetsis biological son. From [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/N#In_the_games Bulbapedia]]: "''When N was young, he was orphaned and left in the woods; here, he was raised by Pokémon. One day, Ghetsis came, claiming to be his father, and raised him to be king of Team Plasma.''" They still have the same hair color, which by anime standards probably means Ghetsis is indeed his biological father. Although even '''[[WordOfGod Junichi Masuda]]''' [[http://www.gamefreak.co.jp/blog/dir_english/?m=201110 has implied N was born from Pokémon]], so who knows.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': [[ArcVillain Kugo Ginjo]] was EvilAllAlong. He even looks like [[OnlySixFaces an Aizen recolor]] for cripes' sake!

** Afterwards, the Armored Titan being [[spoiler: Reiner is even more obvious, thanks to the readers having gotten enough examples of Titan MorphicResonance to know the muscular Titan with close-cropped blond hair is going to be a muscular ''human'' with close-cropped blond hair]].

* Another subversion is found in ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'' where we have two characters, Chase and Proto-Drive. Both of them are similar in visual design and what they can do, and even comparisons have been made InUniverse. It's no doubt that people started calling that the two are the same. Come a three-part episode regarding AnAssKickingChristmas and we find out two details: [[spoiler:Proto-Drive is ''dead'' and that Chase is actually a robot with a number that isn't a part of the OneHundredAndEight numbered-robots. This actually becomes DoubleSubverted in a MetaTwist. Three episodes later and it is revealed that Proto-Drive and Chase ''are'' one in the same]].

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', Reverse Flash turns out to be Harrison Wells, who has been AmbiguouslyEvil to the audience since the start of the series. However, the ''real'' twist is that [[spoiler:he isn't Harrison Wells at all.]]

* ''Film/JurassicWorld'' treats the revelation that ''Indominus rex'' is part velociraptor as a big surprise, but given that she looks just like a bigger raptor and demonstrates the trademark intelligence of a raptor, a lot of viewers were more startled that it was ''supposed'' to be surprise.

That wasn't a reveal. It was blatantly obvious at the end of volume 2, but Word Of God actually confirmed it when the audience was unclear. The volume 3 reveal was just in case you don't pay attention to Word Of God.
** In the penultimate episode of Volume 2, a lot of people had the identity of the strange masked woman [[BigDamnHeroes who rescued Yang from Neopolitan]] pinned down as that of Yang's mother. Come Volume 3, and we get confirmation from Yang that, yes, that was her mom. The creators of ''RWBY'' do seem to be pretty bad at this.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia2'' has the reveal that Elle is Ludger's daughter from the future. The game drops so many hints about it that within an hour of the character first appearing, you'll have figured it out. What this actually means in terms of the overall narrative isn't revealed until much later, though.

What this two meeting in the beginning of the game, multiple hints are dropped over and over and not leaving much of a potential surprise for the player. The revelation being given to Ludger and Elle themselves? The last third of the game. ** Elle actually means being from a fractured dimension. Nothing in terms of the overall narrative isn't revealed until much later, though.world of ''Xillia'' states that time travel is actually possible, but even ignoring that, the fact that Elle's father's clock merges with Ludger's is a big hint. Especially because the game states early on that the same thing [[NeverTheSelvesShallMeet cannot exist twice in the prime dimension]], making it obvious that the clock (and Elle) come from a fractured dimension.

** TheReveal in ''LightNovel/DanganRonpaKirigiri'' that Mikado Shinsen is the fourth 000 detective and the BigBad ''would'' be a big twist...only Shinsen himself disappears partway through the case he's featured in. Anyone remotely GenreSavvy on detective fiction would know to be suss on any NeverFoundTheBody scenario, all of Shinsen's scenes establish him as a mysterious figure, he's the guest given the least development and both the identities of the Committee chairman and missing 000 are referenced throughout the book and speculated to be the same person, making it obvious both will be addressed.
