** One of the longest-running fan theories on the show was that of a mysterious 'Pink Diamond', an apparent Homeworld leader who seems to have disappeared from records during the war. The episodes "Earthlings" and "Back to the Moon" [[spoiler:not only confirm that Pink Diamond did in fact exist (and was the leader of the Earth colony), but reveal that [[BrokenPedestal Rose was responsible for shattering Pink Diamond]], another common piece of fan speculation.]]

* The ''Manga/YuGiOh'' manga [[http://i.imgur.com/WRiwBpy.jpg implies that there's]] [[http://i.imgur.com/lfYr1sI.png some history between]] Yami Bakura and Shadi, which led some fans to guess despite the lack of any concrete hints that Yami Bakura might have killed Shadi and that's why Shadi is some kind of ghost, although it seemed like if there was anything to it, it would have been addressed in the original run of the manga. Turns out in ''Anime/YuGiOhTheDarkSideOfDimensions'' that that's exactly what happened.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': The identity of the Author of the Journals was one of the biggest mysteries on the show, and the focus of the first half of season two. [[spoiler:One of the more common fan theories early on was that he's Stan's long-lost twin brother. Midway through season two, this was confirmed to be true, and that an incident with the portal had him stuck traveling the multiverse for the last thirty years. The following episode went on to confirm a releated theory that they are both named "Stan", Stanley and Stanford. Even going so far as to confirm that the Stan the kids have been living with is Stanley, not Stanford like they (and the fans) originally thought. To avoid confusion both in-universe and for viewers, the Stan they have been living with is still called Grunkle Stan, with the author being Grunkle Ford.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/PillarsOfEternity'', the [[GodIsDead god Eothas is dead]]; he possessed a human host and went on a violent crusade for reasons unknown, only to be blown to pieces by [[FantasticNuke the Godhammer bomb]]. However, priests of Eothas were still able to somehow casts spells, and candles lit in his temple remained alight despite being untended for ''years''. And in ''The White March'', it's discovered that [[spoiler:another god, Abydon, was able to come back from [[ColonyDrop having a moon dropped on him]]]]. Finally, with Eothas being the god of light, redemption, and ''renewal'', many people doubted his demise would be permanent. And indeed, ''Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire'' starts with Eothas' violent resurrection.

* Many fans had predicted that [[spoiler:Han Solo would be the film's SacrificialLion]] in ''Franchise/StarWars Episode VII:'' ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', being an idea dating back to the production of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''. Also averted in that [[spoiler:Harrison Ford]] will be back in Episode VIII to play [[spoiler:Han]] as a PosthumousCharacter, which few fans had predicted.

** Everyone knew Regulus Black... the impressive people knew immediately after reading the initials (based on the locket found in his home early in the 5th book, obsessive readers were able to recall that easily). Everyone else knew because the Internet let them compare notes with other languages' editions -- the initials were R.A.S. where the Black family's name was translated to Svaart, R.A.M. where it was Musta, etc.

This is more impressive when you realize there are a lot of stars whose names begin with A that could have been used (Algol, Altair, Antares and Aldebaran for starters).

* Even before ''Series/GameOfThrones'' made it to television, several of the kookier fan theories for ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' proposed that {{time travel}} would eventually play some sort of role in the plot. In particular, many fans explored the idea that Bran Stark's newfound psychic powers could give him the power to [[MentalTimeTravel glimpse into the past]], and possibly even influence the past by [[BodySurf warging into people]]. This was eventually confirmed in Season 6, where Bran finally ''does'' use his astral projection abilities to [[spoiler: get a look at some key events in his father's youth]]. It's also revealed that [[spoiler: Hodor's mental deficiencies are the result of Bran possessing him while looking into the past, causing him to suffer a massive seizure]].
** The Season 6 finale gives us a ''big'' one: [[spoiler:Jon Snow is not Ned Starkís son but Ned Stark's ''nephew''. Lyanna Stark, Ned Stark's sister, is Jon's mother and the promise Ned made to Lyanna was to keep Jonís identity secret. [[TheGreatestStoryNeverTold Ned spends the rest of his life protecting Jon and raising him as his own son]]. The other half of this theory is that Rhaegar Targaryen is Jonís biological father and this was subsequently [[https://web.archive.org/web/20160629193851/http://www.makinggameofthrones.com/production-diary/got-connections-ned-promise-tower-of-joy-infographic confirmed]] by [[AllThereInTheManual official supplemental material]].]] This had been the subject of fan speculation literally since ''Literature/AGameOfThrones'' came out. [[spoiler:And in fact, knowing the identity of Jonís true mother was the piece of information that convinced the series' author, George R.R. Martin to give series showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss the job of adapting his books into a television series. Itís a MomentOfAwesome for them that they managed to keep this a secret for as long as they did, burning on the inside as they must have been to reveal it. Note that Jon not being Nedís biological son had already been all but confirmed years earlier by WordOfSaintPaul, as Creator/SeanBean had let it slip in an interview, while Creator/AlfieAllen teased that Jon's parentage involved a Luke Skywalker-like plot. Luke was raised by his uncle, unaware of his origins.]]

** Some ''Supernatural'' fans actually call this being Kripked. The Super-wiki even calls this triva by this name, and links to its own page for {{Jossed}}.

Some of them were minor things (i.e. Primarina being Water/Fairy type), but some were accurate predictions about major spoilers, like [[spoiler: Lusamine being the BigBad and the [[EvilMatriarch mother]] of Lillie and Gladion]].
