%%* Franchise/{{Batman}}* In the first two issues of ''ComicBook/TheBatmanAdventures'', the Penguin and Catwoman receive two-way video screens that put them in contact with a figure hidden in the shadows... until a hapless henchman turns on the lights to reveal the Joker. In both cases, Joker shoots the offending minion and continues the conversation as if nothing had happened.

* The fight against Meta Knight of ''VideoGame/KirbyAndTheAmazingMirror'' starts as this, he appears as a colorless shady figure, then he becomes suddenly colored and proceeds to strike toward you ''[[MythologyGag without]]'' [[LetYouAndHimFight giving you a sword]]. [[spoiler: this is the first sign he's an impostor, he's actually [[EvilKnockoff Dark Meta Knight]].]]

* The [[InTheHood Shadows of Yharnam]] of ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'' appear from a fog, they still remain shady and hooded. [[spoiler: Until you dealt enough damage to them, snakes burst out from their faces.]]

* Done very creepily in one of the ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' movies. The door at the end of a shadowed hallway opens, a security guard shines his flashlight around to make sure no one's lurking there... and as soon as he leaves and the hallway is dark again, out steps [[BigBad Rasputin]].

* ''Literature/BenHur'' uses this trope for a big return to his adversary's home place.
* In the Creator/StanleyKubrick adaptation of ''Literature/{{Lolita}}'', Humbert comes home to find a man waiting inside; he turns on the lights to reveal Claire Quilty (known to the audience but not Humbert) in the guise of the college psychiatrist, Dr. Zempf. "I sat in ze dark to save you ze expense of ze electricity." Given his general behavior, it's likely this is a deliberate attempt to screw with Humbert's head.

* Franchise/{{Batman}} is very much the king of this trope, regardless of the medium. Given his status as the TropeNamer and TropeCodifier for TheCowl, can you expect anything less?
