[[spoiler:[[InsecureLoveInterest Blackwall]] reveals that he's a former war criminal who's been living under a false identity for ''years'', and Solas is really Fen'Harel, the ancient elvhen god of legend.]]

* In the Swedish comic ''ComicBook/{{Rocky}}'', the titular character's girlfriend tells him that there are a couple thing she needs to talk with him about. Rocky, being GenreSavvy, predicts that the breakup clichés are going to pile up, and correctly enough, his girlfriend proceeds to tell him that "I don't know what I feel anymore" and "I need to be alone for a while", after this she, with tears in her eyes, asks him to say something, and he simply and bitterly answers "You forgot 'It's not you. It's me'!"
