As you might expect, it also has the side effect (for good or ill) of making audiences become GenreSavvy and ''expect'' there to be a TwistEnding at the end. This trope isn't [[TropesAreNotBad a negative one though]], authors can make this an element of their style. It's ''overuse'' or ''misuse'' that causes problems as the page quote shows. Clever authors can use the existence of this expectation to use a MetaTwist, the ''[[AvertedTrope absence]]'' of the expected twist.

* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'': It would be much easier to count the amount of times that The Light ''wasn't'' behind the events of the episode, or obtained some kind of benefit no matter what the heroes did.
