* ''FanFic/MyImmortal''. Author Tara Gilesbie successfully predicted a major plot twist, namely [[spoiler:Harry being a Horcrux and having to commit suicide to kill Voldemort because of it]]. This led to many a WildMassGuessing about her being J.K. Rowling, which if true would have to be the greatest {{troll}}ing of fandom ever.

* ''Anime/Acca13TerritoryInspectionDept'' - many viewers predicted the twist that [[spoiler: Jean and Lotta are royalty and Jean is the actual heir to the throne]]. There was a lot of evidence pointing to it - GenreSavvy viewers could tell that [[spoiler: if the conflict revolves around the only heir being unsuitable, there's likely a HiddenBackupPrince around somewhere, and unless there's a better candidate around, it's probably the main character]]. There's also all of the times Nino [[spoiler: called Lotta "princess" - a nice thing for his friend's little sister, but considering he's the one who clearly knows more than the rest of them...]]. However, some fans were saying it must be true because [[spoiler: Jean and Lotta are the only characters other than Prince Schwan who have blond hair]], which... isn't true.

** Kubo's habit of using OnlySixFaces didn't stop the fandom speculating about the significance of Zangetsu's appearance. [[spoiler: Yhwach and Zangetsu look so similar, they were speculated to be the same being. Zangetsu is indeed the manifestation of Ichigo's Quincy blood, representing Yhwach's appearance from a thousand years ago.]]
** Fans guessed the truth about Kenpachi's Zanpakutou years ago, assuming Zaraki's claim that his sword was incapable of being sealed was just Zaraki's poor understanding of Zanpakutou. Turns out all the Shinigami were wrong about that. [[spoiler:Fans correctly guessed Zaraki's Zanpakutou ability was cutting power, his lieutenant (Yachiru) was his Zanpakutou spirit and that Kenpachi would be clueless about both until Yachiru revealed it to him. People guessing that Kenpachi's Zanpakutou would have such a straightforward power that perfectly fits his personality was no real surprise, but the Yachiru part was widely guess ''long before the actual evidence supporting the theory began to emerge''.]]

* After the first few episodes of ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'', one member of a popular Power Rangers forum declared that the Red Ranger of the [[EvilCounterpart SPD A-Squad]] [[SamusIsAGirl was in fact a woman]]. After hearing the voice of the Red Ranger, the forum member deduced from his experience with sound engineering that the voice was that of a woman which had been electronically adjusted to make it sound like a guy. Nobody believed him, because there had never been a female Red Ranger in the history of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' (or ''Franchise/SuperSentai''). Eight months and thirty episodes later, the helmet comes off and... the Red Ranger is a woman! Said forum member celebrates by creating a new thread dedicated to his own awesomeness, mocking the people who didn't believe him and filling the thread with flashing [=GIF=]s declaring "I WAS RIGHT". Good game, sir. Of course, there was also the fact she was revealed to be ''evil''... Oh wait, some even guessed that as well.

* ''Comicbook/AllNewXMen'' reveals in Issue 40 that [[spoiler: Iceman was gay]]. A lot of fans weren't exactly surprised. Most though, were, and criticism of the move continues to this day, as Iceman has been a ladies man since 1962, making the move appear forced. The manner in which is was revealed, having [[spoiler: Teenage Jean outright tell Iceman he was gay]] also met with controversy either because, a) For some, it seemed like she was manipulating him with her power, and b) For others, invading Bobby's mind and revealing such personal information was seen as insensitive and offensive.

* Alabama was something of a Cinderella national champion in the 1992 UsefulNotes/CollegiateAmericanFootball season, largely ignored even though they finished the regular season undefeated and won the first ever Southeastern Conference championship game. Then they shocked the #1-ranked Miami Hurricanes, a team that many considered invincible, in the Sugar Bowl. But one of the AP voters, ''Tucson Citizen'' sportswriter [[http://www.rollbamaroll.com/2009/12/11/1195883/an-interview-with-corky-simpson Corky Simpson]], had voted them #1 every single week of the season, and was literally the only voter to give them the top spot the first 15 weeks of the season.

* In the ''WheelOfTime'' series, Mat says to Tuon (in exasperation) "you are my wife" three times. In the section 2.5.7 of the FAQ for the Wheel Of Time series, a fan was quoted as saying: "What if Seanchan marriage customs are such that all you have to do to be married is say it three times? If this is the case, they're already married! The more I think about it, the more I like the idea. I think this is my new pet loony theory." In ''Crossroads of Twilight'', this turned out to be more or less accurate: under Seanchan marriage customs, she merely has to respond "you are my husband" three times to seal the deal, and in ''Knife of Dreams'', she does so.

Kennedy]]]] about three years before that became a major plot point in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast''--although in the actual movie, [[spoiler:Magneto is ''imprisoned'' for assassinating Kennedy, but insists that he actually tried to save him (it's left to the audience to decide whether he's telling the truth)]].
