* In ''Manga/KindaichiCaseFiles'', the case will usually be solved whenever this catchphrase "All the mysteries have been solved" or "The culrpit is one of us!" are said by one character in an overly dramatic fashion, usually taking almost one page. That's why when someone delivers a plausible solution not followed by those, you can tell it's not the correct one, especially when there are 3-4 more chapters to go.

* Averted in ''EndlessOceanBlueWorld''. The game is quite clearly a Japanese game- closely resembling a JRPG- which usually have very long stories. The game also has a HUGE amount of side-content. So it's a huge surprise when it turns out the story is actually over after 6-7 hours of gameplay. You head into what turns out to be the final story mission expecting a major twist that never comes.

* ''Podcast/AnalyzingPhish'' is a podcast in which Harris Wittels attempts to get Scott Aukerman to like the band Music/{{Phish}}, with the understanding that if Scott ever decides to like Phish, the podcast will end immediately. Occasionally, just before Harris plays the next Phish song, Scott will tell the audience that if the current episode is about to end, it's because whatever song that is about to play has convinced him to like Phish. [[spoiler:This never happens]].

* As mentioned in DiscOneFinalDungeon, a lot of the time you know you haven't ''really'' defeated the BigBad and saved the world because you have three more discs to go through.

** Played Straight: The Fool and Death Social Links both automatically rank up over the course of the plot. Neither are maxed at the point that pretends to be the ending.

* The WebVideo/ThirdRateGamer parodies this a few times.
** At one point in his Nintendo DS review, he is conspicuously farther away from the camera, spoofing WebVideo/TheIrateGamer's misuse of the camera to spoil certain jokes in his ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}}'' review.
--->'''Third Rate Gamer:''' These games suck so much, it makes me wish that a Thwomp from ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' would fall out of the sky in this room and crush me! Of course, you've probably already noticed that I'm further back away from the camera and there's a lot of empty space above me, so the joke is pretty much dead, but I'm gonna do it anyway. ''[gets crushed by a Thwomp, accompanied with a fart sound]''
** He does it again at the end of his ''VideoGame/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' review, this time spoofing a scene from the Irate Gamer's ''VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn'' review.
--->'''Third Rate Gamer:''' And why am I on one end of the screen? ''[Chip magically appears on the left]''

** The humans find the planet that they knew was Earth mid-way through the last season and it turns out to be devastated by a (relatively) recent nuclear incident. Later, after the next half season of episodes, the audience finds that the planet where the ship finally ends up (with a broken jump-drive [hence, no further faster-than-light travels]) is ''our'' Earth, which is the name the arriving people give the planet. It is later revealed that all the events happened 150,000 years ago, ending with the first Human-Cylon hybrid child being identified as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitochondrial_eve mitochondrial Eve]].

* 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.

* ''Literature/InvisibleMonsters'' deliberately counters this, even moreso in the [[ReCut "Remix"]] version. Not only do all versions follow an AnachronicOrder (as both start at the conclusion [[HowWeGotHere and work backwards]]), but the "Remix" even removed the knowledge of remaining length; as each chapter ends similarly to a ChooseYourOwnAdventure book (i.e. "Now turn to page X"), the knowledge of how and when the book ends comes as a total surprise.

* At the midway point of ''Film/PrinceCaspian'', the forces of Narnia attack the Telmarine castle. Since it is the midway point, [[spoiler:it's pretty obvious that the assault is doomed to failure from the start]]. For bonus points, this assault is nowhere in the [[Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia original Narnia saga]].
