** After you [[spoiler:kill Ryan, Atlas will start a dramatic monologue where [[TheReveal he reveals]] that he's actually the thought-to-be dead Frank Fontaine. It's all very suspenseful... unless you have subtitles turned on in which case an entire paragraph of dialogue will be displayed before he's finished talking, spoiling his big reveal several moments before he actually says it.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In ''Legion'', the 'Followers' tab on your scouting map shows all of the Champions you can recruit for your Order Hall, not just the ones you already have. This makes it practically impossible to be surprised by who you recruit, even though some of these characters were very obviously intended to be twists.

** Each time you get a Crystal Star, the game will tell you about its special powers in battle and what they do. So when you get the Ruby Star in Chapter 4 [[spoiler:only to move on without learning about its abilities, [[GrandTheftMe you know something's up.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

** If the entry for a seemingly minor or unimportant character on a character page is almost completely spoilered out or there is a good amount of tropes within said character's entry, chances are [[HiddenDepths there is more to this character]] [[WalkingSpoiler than meets the eye]].

*** The true killer might stand out in the original version as [[spoiler:the only major character to not have a Social Link]]. In the ''Golden'' remake, [[spoiler:this was changed and he's given a Social Link]], but at that point the killer's identity was largely a LateArrivalSpoiler anyway. Still, if you did manage to go in unspoiled, you'd definitely raise an eyebrow upon seeing [[spoiler:his Arcana is the Jester -- another 0, like your Fool]].

Added DiffLines:

** In some games in the series, all enemies have a LuckStat of 0. This means that any character with a portrait who has even 1 Luck is definately recruitable, and any character who seems sympathetic but has 0 Luck is likely to remain an enemy.

*** Also played with regarding [[spoiler: Gunter]]. This character appears to have an unavoidable PlotlineDeath early on, but if you had them fight alongside the Avatar or [[spoiler: Jakob]], the heart animation that indicates gaining support points appears. [[GuestStarPartyMember Guest Star Party Members]] in Fire Emblem rarely have supports, so this seems like a dead giveaway that it's a DisneyDeath and they'll rejoin eventually. On [[spoiler: ''Conquest'']], this is true. On [[spoiler: ''Birthright'']], they really are gone for good, and on [[spoiler: ''Revelation'', they rejoin temporarily but can't support with anyone and eventually leave for good again.]]

But it's ultimately subverted there, as despite Gunter being TheMole via DemonicPossession, he's technically still playable throughout the entire route apart from the chapter he's fought in.]]

* In ''{{Albion}}'', shops sell weapons none of the party can wield (in the early game), though it is justified and otherwise would be plenty of FridgeLogic. The weapons, themselves, are described with a list of character classes which can wield them, revealing whom you can expect in the party later. And equipment in ''Summoner'' actually lists the name of everyone who can use it, including equipment solely for characters you haven't yet recruited.

* The secret files in ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'' very often contain rather blatant spoilers for things that will come up in a cutscene after leaving the room they were acquired in. This wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the fact that most people would view said files the minute they get them...which is ''before'' the cutscenes happen. Some of the files even spoil big game plot points like it's practically nothing. Woe betide the unfortunate soul who decides to go for the files on their first playthrough and read them all, ''especially'' if they're playing on Hard (which gives you more files).

** The flowchart is also a big source of spoilers. By taking a look at the branches, you can tell how much story it will provide. So you'd probably think that the longest one is the GoldenEnding... and that's exactly the case. It doesn't stop there, though: because the "Ally" option is always the left one at a junction and the "Betray" one is always the one going right, you can tell if it's better to ally or to betray in most cases. On a side note, [[spoiler:the trope is subverted with Tenmyouji's ending, because its branch gets suddenly expanded when you reach its apparent tip. And it's necessary to get it before attempting to reach the True ending.]]

** The last witness of any given trial is nearly always the true killer. This can cause related videos on Youtube to inadvertently spoil the killer if they're the last or so part of the case. However, the series sometimes shakes this up in the final trial, where is several games the last witness is not the killer, and sometimes the game's true BigBad is never even cross-examined in person.



* In the Franchise/AceAttorney franchise, [[spoiler:the last witness of any given trial is nearly always the true killer]].


Added DiffLines:

* It's generally not a good idea to look at the [[UsefulNotes/EntertainmentSoftwareRatingsBoard ESRB rating description of a game]] before playing it, as many of them are very detailed as to why the game recieved its rating, which often means describing a CruelAndUnusualDeath in vivid detail, which can sometimes make it obvious who dies and how. [[DrivenToSuicide Suicides]] and [[HeroicSacrifice Heroic Sacrifices]] are also specifically mentioned. Occasionally the sample lines of suggestive or disturbing dialogue can be ''major'' spoilers, like this example from the ratings page of ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganronpa2'': [[spoiler: "Some of them tried to have children with Junko's dead body."]]
