May overlap with CaptainObviousTwist and even TheUntwist if the revelation is well-foreshadowed but most fans reject the theory exactly because it seems so obvious. And of course, may overlap with EpilepticTrees.

** It's been speculated that Steven is a HeroicBastard because the Crystal Gems don't have UndeadTaxExemption and they don't really understand human traditions. "Gem Harvest" confirmed in a throwaway line that his parents [[InterspeciesRomance Greg and Rose]] weren't legally married to each other.

** It's been speculated that Steven is a HeroicBastard because Gems don't have/understand marriage traditions and Greg is a chill enough guy to not make a big deal out of it. "Last One Out Of Beach City" also reveals that the Crystal Gems don't have UndeadTaxExemption and they don't really understand human traditions. UndeadTaxExemption, when Pearl explains to Steven that she can't get a driver's license because [[CassandraTruth nobody would believe that she's a long-lived alien from another planet]]. "Gem Harvest" confirmed in a throwaway line that his Steven's parents [[InterspeciesRomance Greg and Rose]] weren't never legally married to each other.married.

* The ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' "Operation: Zero Tolerance" story arc featured a mysterious anti-mutant leader called Bastion. Fan speculation ran the gamut, but one persistent theory was that he was Nimrod, the constantly-adapting KillerRobot from the future. Turns out his origin was a good bit more complicated, but he was indeed Nimrod.

* Along the same lines, when it was decided that [[ComicBook/TheFalcon Sam Wilson]] would be the new ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, Marvel treated that like a big mystery too. They even tried to throw off suspicion by making it seem like Sam had been KilledOffForReal a short time before the new Captain America book launched. Needless to say, when they officially unveiled Sam as the new Cap on an episode of ''TheColbertReport'', very few comic readers were surprised. The book itself even {{lampshaded}} this by having Sam remark that there was no suspense or sense of surprise, since his fellow Avengers had likely already guessed that he would be the new Captain America.

Added DiffLines:

** One that overlaps with HilariousInHindsight: for a long time, [[SailorEarth fan characters who joined the Straw Hats in fanfics]] were commonly given one of two positions, helmsman or ship musician, as many fans noticed that those roles were vacant. Both jobs ended up being filled by actual canon characters; Brook became the ship musician and while Jimbei hasn't ''officially'' joined yet, he's shown incredible skill helming ships and [[SixthRanger him joining the Straw Hats]] is largely seen as a ForegoneConclusion.

* ''Manga/DetectiveConan'':
** Shuuichi Akai is murdered, but in a manner that leaves his body unrecognisable. Later on, a mysterious man called Subaru Okiya appears, who resembles Shuuichi in many ways and is trusted by Conan (who's normally ProperlyParanoid). Both men's names contain references to [[Franchise/{{Gundam}} Char Aznable]].[[note]] "Akai" means "red" and references Char's nickname of "red comet", "Shuuichi" comes from Char's voice actor's name, and "Subaru" is part of Char's real name ("Kyasubaru" in Japanese) [[/note]] Naturally, it turns out that Shuuichi faked his death with Conan's help and disguised himself as Subaru.
** Tooru Amuro is actually the Black Organisation agent Bourbon. Another case of MeaningfulName, as Bourbon is previously described as hating Shuuichi, and Tooru is obviously named for [[Franchise/{{Gundam}} Amuro Ray]] (among other similarities).

* The ''Manga/DGrayMan'' fanbase has been making jokes for ages about why [[BigBad the Millennium Earl]] [[HatShop wears hats all the time]]. Bunny ears were suggested... as were horns. Cue chapter 187...
