* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'': when the second season introduced a masked character named "Vidar" who disliked [=McGillis=] and was working with a political rival of his, it didn't take people long to guess he was in fact Gaelio Bauduin, who had been presumed dead in the first season at [=McGillis=]'s hands. This only intensified when it came out that Vidar knew the circumstances behind Carta Issue's death, which [=McGillis=] had orchestrated. Few were surprised when it turned out that, indeed, Vidar is Gaelio.

* ''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 in the show's run 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 (which became part of the theory after the season one finale). The following episode went on to confirm another part of the theory, that being 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. Frankly, the only major part of the theory that didn't pan out was the idea that Grunkle Stan was part of the original research team.[[note]]An idea referred to as the Mystery Trio by fans, consisting of the Stan Twins and Fiddleford [=McGucket=]. In actuality, Stanley was only involved at the last second, when Stanford was shutting the entire operation down.[[/note]]]] In response to the fans figuring all this out almost two years before the reveal, the creator... well, his response is currently the trope picture for TrollingCreator.

Sure enough, it was confirmed as true a few episodes later in "Catch and Release".

** Many fans theorised that, after the events of "Boast Busters", The Great and Powerful Trixie's livelyhood was essentially ruined by her being exposed as a fraud, and she would one day return seeking revenge on Twilight Sparkle. Others claimed she would eventually fall into DefeatEqualsFriendship. Cue the series three episode "Magic Duel" and [[spoiler:both turned out to be true!]] Unlike Luna's case, by this time the writers were well aware of the show's fandom, so this could have been a case of AscendedFanon.
** Ever since "The Cutie Mark Chronicles" it was widely speculated that the parents of Big Macintosh, Applejack and Apple Bloom were dead. "Apple Family Reunion" hinted at this, and after the episode the staff confirmed that they were indeed dead and the shooting stars at the end were meant to represent them.
** Scootaloo's {{Hero Worship|per}} of Rainbow Dash, combined with how she's the only Cutie Mark Crusader without a sister, led to speculation that Scootaloo views Rainbow Dash as her CoolBigSis, which is confirmed by "Sleepless in Ponyville."
