* There's a very quiet one in ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine''. The first thing in the game that you see is a big red "STOP" sign. About halfway through the game, you find another one, this one filled with bullet holes. This comes immediately before the first huge twist that reveals the true, deconstructive nature of the game, [[spoiler:the white phosphorus shelling and its civilian casualties]].

* In ''Literature/GoodOmens'', a baby is switched at birth with TheAntiChrist by a cult of Satanists, and the narration pauses for a moment to allow the reader to contemplate the possibility that the cult had this child discretely adopted by a perfectly lovely family, whereupon he grew up to be a perfectly normal and lovely boy who developed an interest in tropical fish. Because you don't want to know what could have happened to him. [[spoiler: It's subverted; we do in fact meet that boy later in the narrative... and he's a perfectly normal and lovely boy with an interest in tropical fish. Because the Satanists had him discreetly adopted by a perfectly lovely family, because of ''course'' they did, what were you ''thinking''?]]

* All the books in ''VideoGame/OdinSphere'' end happily enough with [[spoiler: Gwendolyn and Oswald together, along with Cornelius and Velvet, while Mercedes finally defeats Odin and wins the war with the Aesir, and the three Wise Men are all dead.]] Then you find out that the last book is called Armageddon and you know right off the bat that [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt everything goes downhill from here.]]

* In Anne Rice's [[TheVampireChronicles Tale of the Body Thief]], the second-to-last chapter is only a few paragraphs long and consists of Lestat warning the readers that they really ought to stop now, and if they don't, will probably wish they did. He says that the book should end here, and although it doesn't, the reader is welcome to pretend it did.
