* Whenever your favorite series has announced a new installment to their franchise but you cannot afford it for several reasons (region-locking/NoExportForYou/false-equivalence currency exchange rates of all things) you tend to avoid anything related to the series due to not wanting to be spoiled. [[ColdTurkeysAreEverywhere Unfortunately the more you try to avoid it the more people spoil them, since everybody and their mother have access to them, except you]]. This got worse if said franchise is well-known and fast-paced like ''{{Pokemon}}''. By the time you hear too much of the spoilers, their twists and how said new installment is far superior in comparison to the rest of the franchise and yet you ''still could not afford it'' no matter what [[HypeAversion the bitterness that you had bottled up this time might cause you to unleash a destructive hatred for a series that you followed for years.]]

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'':It's hard to describe anything about Weiss and Blake's S1 character arcs without revealing that Blake is a [[FantasticRacism Faunus.

... wait a minute. Isn't that a commercial for the latest season? Why is the first season's ruthless and merciless {{big bad}} being all chummy-chummy with the main protagonists? You mean [[HeelFaceTurn he's going to turn good?!]]

** A major subplot of ''Justice For All'' is Phoenix (and by extension, the player) believing Edgeworth to be dead, apparently having committed suicide, only for him to turn up alive and well in the game's final chapter. Once again, the fact that he has his own spinoff game, which chronologically occurs after this one, spoils this. However, it was always more of a case of LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt anyway, and he appears on the game's cover (at least on the DS version anyway), so it's not too much of a spoiler.

** Oddly averted in ''VisualNovel/{{Ace Attorney Investigations|MilesEdgeworth}}''. Edgeworth never actually mentions why [[spoiler: he stopped following the path of von Karma]] and someone playing the game first might assume it was due to soul-searching and personal moral decisions. They would be unaware that in the first game Edgeworth discovered that [[spoiler: von Karma murdered his father and raised him as a heartless prosecutor as revenge for Edgeworth's father giving him a penalty in court.]] In fact, most of the big spoilery events of the earlier games are either not mentioned or referred to so lightly (such as [[spoiler: Franziska being shot]])a newbie might think they're talking about a NoodleIncident.

Sometimes, it is hard to avoid this in shows that feature major changes in setting and cast line-up that hinge on major plot twists in previous seasons. For example, the Season 1 big bad is [[HeelFaceTurn a major player on the good guys' side]] in Season 4. How exactly are you going to ''hide'' that in promos just for the sake of not spoiling the people who haven't watched Season 3 yet[[JustForFun/SyndicateQuestersUnitedAgainstDeviousness ?]] Also a frequent problem in longrunners and multi-volumes where the story unfolds over a long period of time.

* Related to that, due to some rather ridiculous ScheduleSlip, ''Secret Wars'' was delayed long enough that parts of the ending have already been spoiled by the ''Comicbook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel'' relaunch. The ''All-New, All-Different Avengers'' preview given out on Free Comic Book Day already spoiled that certain characters would survive and that [[Comicbook/UltimateSpiderMan Miles Morales]] would be joining the MarvelUniverse, but the first issue of the new ''Comicbook/IronMan'' took it even further by spoiling that [[spoiler: DoctorDoom survived the events of ''Secret Wars'', and has healed his face to boot!]]

* The 2012 Diamond edition of ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'' 's menus (both on the DVD ''and'' Blu-Ray discs), it's best to start the movie immediately if you don't want to know that [[spoiler: Lady and Tramp have kids]], [[spoiler:Tramp gets taken in by the Darlings for his effort in protecting the baby]] ''and'' that [[spoiler:Trusty [[DisneyDeath survives]] after getting hit by the dogcatcher's wagon]], as it shows a clip of the final scene in the movie, which spoils all three. The former spoiler even comes ''less than a '''minute''' into the main menu!''
