** The BigBad (who has recently rematerialised from being a ghost) has a SoulJar. A [[GottaCatchThemAll number of them]] in fact. Again, only possibly surprising to an utterly Genre... Innocent reader, let's put it that way.

** TheHero of the story is TheChosenOne meant to kill the BigBad BecauseDestinySaysSo and PropheciesAreAlwaysRight. No, that is not just the summary of a formulaic fantasy saga - that is an actual reveal in the end of ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' that was supposed to be of great emotional impact to both Harry and the reader.

** Harry Potter is the last SoulJar. Would've been shocking if a huge deal hadn't been made out of the mysterious connection between him and Voldemort, and it hadn't been pretty much spelled out that Voldemort had put "a part of himself" into Harry.

** The chapter 3 culprit being Celes isn't very surprising either, since Celes does a ''terrible'' job diverting suspicion away from herself, despite being purportedly a good liar. It's especially obvious once it is deduced that Yamada is the accomplice, when Celes is the character who Yamada interacts the most with. How intentional this actually is is up for debate.

* ''Manga/{{Erased}}'' attempts to treat the TheReveal that Satoru's teacher Yashiro is Kayo's killer as a huge twist, despite Yashiro being literally the sole character who fits the very basic information one is given concerning the culprit.

* Wizards of the Coast tried to hype up the "mystery" of who could be behind the disasters on Innistrad. [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot Because the last set was about]] [[EldritchAbomination the Eldrazi]], [[ChekovsGun and they went out of their way to mention one of the Titans was missing,]] no one was surprised when it turned out to be the Eldrazi.

Added DiffLines:

* Literature/TheLostSymbol: Mal'akh is really Peter Solomon's presumed-dead son Zachary. According to the narration, Mal'akh killed Zachary Solomon before escaping prison with Solomon money but it's not hard to figure out this is just careful wording. Dan Brown even drops a massive hint by outright mentioning Darth Vader and Luke and then having Mal'akh cut Peter's hand off but it's still treated as a big reveal.

* People [[{{Fanon}} like to think]] this was played straight in ''[[Fanfic/MLPTheGamesWePlay The Games We Play]]'' by [=AbsoluteAnonymous=], to the point that one person declared TheReveal of Mare-Do-Well's identity to be a cop-out. However, it is actually a subversion. The actual [[TheReveal Reveal]] wasn't '''''WHO''''' Mare-Do-Well really was, but '''''WHY''''' they hid themselves behind the mask in the first place. The aforementioned readers simply just didn't get it.

** Double subverted with the mysterious masked man Tobi being Obito Uchiha. It seemed incredibly obvious right from the get-go, until Tobi pulled a 180 degree on personality, authority, and power level that completely contradicted what Obito would have been capable (eg: the class dunce should not be capable of giving [[TheAce the Fourth Hokage]] a hard time). This actually led to a number of others characters being considered and causing quite a divide among the fandom. It isn't until 300 chapters later and a confirmation that he wasn't Madara Uchiha that it became somewhat possible, but the vast power level difference allow this to be subverted ''past'' his reveal until confirmed by Madara himself one chapter later!

** TheReveal that Sasuke and Naruto were the reincarnations of the Sage of the Six Paths' elder and younger sons respectively. While many were still shocked, just as many were left unsurprised, and those that were shocked admitted it was obvious in hindsight, especially after it was revealed that their respective previous incarnations were Madara Uchiha and Hashirama Senju, the First Hokage.
