* TheMovie ''Anime/Doraemon'': Nobita's Great Adventure into the Underworld involves the characters creating a parallel universe where magic exists. Unfortunately said parallel world turned out to have a BigBad demon who wanted to take over the Earth. The solution? [[CuttingTheKnot Just go back to their own universe.]] In the comic it has a fake ending but of course it doesn't work since people will notice a suspiciously large amount of book left.

** ''Unwound Future'' later subverts this though: [[spoiler: some of the mysteries are solved during ''the ending cutscene''. (so technically the game is already over)]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'': While the descriptions for most of the promotional [=DLCs=] avert this (looking at your journal at the beginning of the game tells you that you need to find a suitable home first before you can get it), the DLC weapons and armor themselves spoil who your potential squadmates are, especially if you've bought any of the Item Packs (which all have companion-specific items).

* Subverted by ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'', along with InterfaceSpoiler. The New Game level selection menu clearly shows a list of the testchambers, [[spoiler:but there's an escape sequence at the end that's part of the last chapter]].

Added DiffLines:

* This gets increasingly averted as the ''Literature\{{Safehold}}'' series goes on. Every book has a list of characters and a glossary of terms at the end of it, which include characters and terms from the entire series, not just the individual book. In the eighth novel, the combined length of these two items takes up ''one hundred pages''. Or, to put it another way, ''thirteen percent'' of the book.

*** Even if the spoiler tags aren't scrolled over, any link hidden within them is still evident. This can spoil it for any reader who accidently leaves the cursor over the spoiler tag such as in cases where [[spoiler:ItWasAllADream]].

Added DiffLines:

*** Site policy dictates that the trope being labelled should never go inside spoiler tags, meaning that even if the rest of the entry is whited out, the very presence of the trope in the list can spoil the fact that ''something'' related to that particular trope is going to happen. It's worse when it's on a Characters page.

* In general, [[LetsPlay Let's Plays]] that have a FinalDeath gimmick (such as [[FinalDeathMode Hardcore]] runs of ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' or [[SelfImposedChallenge Nuzlocke]] runs of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'') and haven't been updated for some time can fall victim to this. If you're familiar with the game and see that the latest episode is at a point far from the game's end, it's a fair bet that [[KillEmAll things aren't going to go well for the player]].

** Played with in "A Canterlot Wedding" where, while not unjustifiably, Twilight Sparkle has been a ''colossal jerk'' to pretty much everyone involved and all her friends are angry. She realizes she's wrong and apologizes to Cadance... who seemingly accepts without a hitch. Yeah... with an entire second episode in the works, ''nobody'' thought it was going to be over that easily. Still, nobody saw Queen Chrysalis and her changeling army coming...

** The Grumps like to joke about this too, particularly during game levels they are struggling with, where one will say something along the lines of "This time we'll do it" and the other will remark that, since the viewers can see the time bar, if they're only 4 minutes into a 25 minute video odds are he fails miserably again.

* Final dungeon in ''VideoGame/TheLastStory'' has one of the main characters[[spoiler:, Lowell,]] died. However, when you pay attention carefully to equipment menu, you still have that character's face on the last equipment you gave [[spoiler:him]], meaning that something involving said party member would happen. For example, [[spoiler:he would be revived?]]
** With enough stretching out using the same finding, you could also deduce that there would be another extra chapter available after the final dungeon, because why else do the system still give the equipment to a canonically dead party member?

* Some of the ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' movie novelizations feature movie stills around the middle, a couple of which spoil some scenes or characters from the endings.
