Added DiffLines:

* Norwegian TV theater was straightforward most of the time, but sometimes the MindScrew factor escalated immensely. In 1982, a young and promising scriptwriter launched a story about a photographer with relational issues. That is an easy way to describe the plot. The ending contains three actors dancing together in chalked faces, the main character posing as a bride with a ridiculously long veil, a ruin with all actors posed in bizarre ways (one of them inexplicably hanging on the wall), and at the very end, a bicycle hovering in the sea... WTF?

Added DiffLines:

* At the end of ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3'', the player [[AteHisGun eats their gun]] to stop the AI Corvus from infecting [[PurelyAestheticGender their]] Direct Neural Implant. They then appear in a frozen forest, introduced by others as a sort of afterlife made possible by their [=DNIs=], where they fight alongside Taylor against Corvus. Part of the fight involves burning giant human hearts to unlock paths through the forest. Then, the player returns to the real world and manually purges their DNI of Corvus. When asked their name by another soldier, they reply, "Taylor." Then the screen goes black.

** The Book of Daniel, which is chronologicly the last in the hebrew version, Starts off normally enough: Famous stories like the fiery furnace, the handwriting on the wall, and the lion's den in the first half. The last half consists of four very confusing prophetic visions that seem to be about world events over the next few centuries.

* Gainax has truly outdone themselves with ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt''. In more or less chronological order: Panty spends an undefined amount of time as a farm girl (the setting of which is otherwise staged), Panty and Brief finally do it, Brief accidentally unlocks Hellsmonkey, which is a ''[[GagPenis giant penis ghost]]'', Corset turns Scanty and Kneesocks into weapons and kills Garterbelt before fusing with said giant penis ghost, Chuck and Fastener turn into awesome monster things, Panty and Stocking use Garterbelt's credit card to buy enough weapons to attempt to deliver an [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill awesome finishing blow.]] They miss and hit Heaven, which summons a pair of [[MediumBlending lifelike legs]] to close the gate that Hellsmonkey is coming out of. This pair of legs turns out to be Panty and Stocking's mom. And Garterbelt dies again, [[DeathIsCheap only to come back to life.]] Among all this, the heavens are actually [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann pierced]] with a [[ThisIsADrill drill.]] BigBad dies, but then isn't dead, ''Stocking is actually a demon WHO KILLS PANTY'', and now Brief must retrieve Panty's 666 pieces and bring her back to life. It's still not even clear if all this is actually the ending, or even canon. In fact, it's so big of a Gainax Ending that the characters who didn't see it coming react to it in much the same way the viewers do. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSLAuCenxcA Just take a look for yourself.]]

** And despite being made to basically advertise and coincide with the anime, the manga's ''massive'' ScheduleSlip resulted in the initial few differences snowballing into altered plotlines, to the point that Shinji actually is relatively badass during the Mass-Produced Eva battle and saves Asuka - only for the rest of the ending to happen anyway, and then suddenly everyone is living their days normally again with no memory of the series of events occurring, to the point of Shinji not recognizing Asuka when they see eachother in public. [[MindScrew And the crucified-pose Evas from End of Evangelion are just part of the landscape that's taken for granted.]]

* ''TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'': It's an understatement to say the film is weird from the start, but around the Floor Show things go [[UpToEleven straight to Eleven]], as [[spoiler:a completely out-of-nowhere (even for Rocky Horror) burlesque cross-dressing number descends into random swimming, and then it's revealed Frank-n-Furter, Riff-Raff, and Magenta are all aliens from Planet Transsexual in the Galaxy of Transylvania, the latter who kill Frank-n-Furter and leave Brad, Janet, and Dr. Scott in the dust as the mansion takes off into space.]] The Criminologist reaffirms that we're [[NietzscheWannabe just insects]] [[FauxlosophicNarration adrift in a meaningless void of time and space]], and the movie ends.
** The sequel, ''ShockTreatment'' is slightly better. Brad, Janet, Betty and Oliver happily sing and dance away, stealing the convertible. All of the citizens of Denton are committed to a mental institution, but they seem happy about it.
