* ''Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk'' introduced the Comicbook/UltimateMarvel version of Comicbook/SheHulk in a {{Cliffhanger}} after having earlier introduced Jen Walters (She-Hulk's alter ego in the mainstream Franchise/MarvelUniverse) in a brief supporting role. This turned out to be as misdirect, as the Ultimate She-Hulk was later revealed to be Betty Ross.

Added DiffLines:

* When the ComicBook/RedHulk originally made his debut, there was a mystery as to who this character really was. Some video footage was discovered that apparently showed him killing Thunderbolt Ross, but it was eventually revealed that it was staged and he was Ross all along.

* ''Film/CrookedHouse'' has several. The most obvious ones include [[spoiler: Brenda being the one who gave Leonides the fatal dose of eserine, her affair with Laurence and the fact she stood to inherit the estate]]. Charles himself almost dismisses this entirely as being far too convenient. Another is [[spoiler: a new will turning up naming Sophia as the benefactor; it's also thrown around that she specifically hired Charles to investigate because he would be unlikely to suspect her, due to their previous romantic relationship]]. As it turns out [[spoiler: neither Brenda, Laurence or Sophia was the killer]].

* In ''VideoGame/QuackShot'', Donald Duck travels the world in search of a legendary hidden treasure, fighting Pete and his goons along the way. When Donald finally reaches the treasure, he's incredibly dismayed that the treasure is actually a boring statue of a princess. Seeing as Donald is the ButtMonkey and TheChewToy, this would have been in line with his character, despite the player's anguish. However, the game throws in one curve ball at the end: [[spoiler: Huey, Dewey and Louie drop the statue, revealing a priceless necklace inside, making Donald's adventure worthwhile.]]

* The point-and-click adventure ''{{Morningstar}}'' featured a literal Red Herring. It's optional to pick up, but once you do there's no way to get rid of it.

* In the two-part ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' episode "Injustice For All," it's revealed that there's a traitor within Comicbook/LexLuthor's [[LegionOfDoom group]]. Cheetah was previously shown flirting with Batman, strongly implying she was the turncoat. However, at the very end of the episode, it turns out that the traitor was Ultra-Humanite, who switched sides after Batman bribed him with a large amount of money that he could use to [[WickedCultured fund his favorite opera company]].

** It's also used in how Snake [[spoiler:[[EyeScream loses his right eye]], being Big Boss. He gets captured by Volgin and as a test of The Boss' loyalty, he demands she cut out his eyes with a knife. A squeamish scene, but not for players who know their ''Metal Gear'' lore and are paying attention: Big Boss is missing his ''right'' eye, but Boss goes to cut out his ''left'' first. Predictably, she's stopped by Tatyana before she can go through with it and Snake actually loses his eye minutes later when Ocelot is doing his Russian roulette game on Tatyana and he sees the bullet in the chamber of the next gun; knowing that EVA will die if he pulls the trigger, he jumps in the way and knocks Ocelot off but the gun goes off right in his eye and blasts it out.]]

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SpiderMan'' episode "Goblin War," Peter's Spider-Sense goes off just as he's about to shake hands with Jason, Felicia's fiancé. He initially thinks it's because [[Comicbook/TheKingpin Wilson Fisk]] was in the room, but it later turns out that it happened because Jason is really the Hobgoblin.

* For a while in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', through exposition from the other characters we were lead to believe that the Homeworld Gem Peridot arrived on Earth so she could reactivate the "Kindergarten" and start [[BizarreAlienBiology Gem production]] again, which would suck the life from the Earth and doom all living things. While nothing in her dialogue suggests otherwise, this does not explain why, through her robots, she was looking for and activated a part of the Kindergarten that was unknown to the Crystal Gems, or later on when she visits the place herself, why she has not repaired the "Injectors"; deactivated machines that facilitate the artifical growth of new Gems. Eventually in the episode "When It Rains," it's revealed that her true mission was to [[spoiler: monitor the Cluster, a massive artificial Gem incubating beneath the Earth, which was made from [[FateWorseThanDeath the shards of fallen Gems]]]].

** One that spans the entire series is the "Zodiac," a collection of ten symbols on a wheel with [[BigBad Bill Cipher]] depicted in the center that flashes at the end of the intro for every episode. Bill himself displays this during his first appearance. It's revealed in the final episode that bringing the ten people associated with those symbols together is a key to defeating Bill. So they gather around in a circle on a drawing of the wheel, start [[PowerGlows glowing,]] and... an argument between Stan and Ford delays the process long enough for Bill to not only destroy the wheel Ford drew, but turn everyone who isn't a member of the Pines family into a tapestry. Bill is destroyed by another method, and [[https://ohmy.disney.com/insider/2016/02/19/exclusive-gravity-falls-creator-alex-hirsch-on-weirdmageddon-3-take-back-the-falls/ an interview with Alex Hirsch]] following the finale revealed that the wheel was more a cool way to illustrate how the characters are linked together than anything of major plot significance. It was only included in the finale's plot because [[PanderingToTheBase he felt the fans expected it]].
