** At the end of ''Gangland'', [[spoiler: Gobby does this to Tombstone again, this time to gloat about setting up the episode's three-way villain fight, which left Tombstone's good reputation in tatters. Particularly dramatic since this was the Goblin's first appearance (in-costume, anyway) since season one.]]

An example that is almost completely spoilered out doesn't work very well as an example.
* Used in the climax of ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine''. [[spoiler:After going through hell to reach the penthouse headquarters of the rogue Colonel Konrad, Captain Walker finds a chair on a balcony overlooking the sand-choked ruins of Dubai... then moves a little closer and sees [[DeadAllAlong Konrad's desiccated corpse sitting in it.]] The real colonel had been DrivenToSuicide well before Walker even arrived in Dubai, meaning that the "Konrad" who Walker had been arguing with over the radio for half the game was nothing but a symptom of his SanitySlippage. When confronted with this revelation, all Walker can do is [[ThousandYardStare slump onto his knees and stare.]]]]

* Variation in ''Literature/TheMagiciansNephew'': Uncle Andrew reveals himself by standing up, rather than rotating the chair.

* In ''Webcomic/SeiyuuCrush'', just after Kaji thinks, "He seems normal", [=KoiZ=] turns his chair around to reveal he's wearing a bra.

* ''Anime/YesPrecure5'' did it with a member of the QuirkyMinibossSquad instead of the school headmaster. Justified (not that this trope is as much in need of justification as some others) in that the girls had never actually met the headmaster before, so they didn't realize she wasn't the real thing until they realized who she ''was''.

Bigger Bad has been renamed.
* Played with in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''. During the mid-credits sequence that reveals [[spoiler:Thanos]] as the BiggerBad, rather than turning around in a spinning chair, he gets up and looks over his shoulder. However, he plays this trope straight in ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy''.

* Done on ''Series/DaysOfOurLives'', likely ripping off the ''Film/{{Psycho}}'' example. When a character attempts to plead their case to resident villain Stefano [=DiMera=], she talks to a back facing chair. Finally fed up with his lack of response, she grabs onto the chair to turn it around. . .to reveal Stefano's mummified corpse.
