* Subverted in In ''Creator/AbbottAndCostello Meet The Killer, Creator/BorisKarloff'', the great question of the plot is who the mysterious killer in the hotel could possibly be. Could it perhaps be the evil Swami, played by Boris Karloff? Turns out, it's... [[spoiler:'''Not''' Boris Karloff's character at all. Not even close. It's the hotel manager.]]

This trope only applies if the title really is a spoiler. An important event like a [[TonightSomeoneDies character's death]] could be revealed by the title (and even take place near the show's end) but not have been meant as a surprise, so the title's not an example of this trope. See ForegoneConclusion or OhAndXDies for those. Quick litmus test: if the work was a paperback novel, the back would ask a question. Would the title answer it?

it? OhAndXDies builds up tension whether we have a LyingCreator or TeasingCreator or not. If the creator is NOT lying or teasing, it's this trope.



'''Obviously given the nature of this trope, ''unmarked spoilers ahoy!'''''

'''Obviously given the nature of this '''''Note:''''' This is a SpoileredRotten trope, ''unmarked spoilers ahoy!'''''
that means that '''EVERY SINGLE EXAMPLE''' on this list is a spoiler by default and most of them will be unmarked. [[YouHaveBeenWarned This is your last warning]], only proceed if you really believe you can handle this list.

* The episode "Betrayal" of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. Wait, betrayal? But who would be betray the Titans? Could it possibly be the [[SixthRangerTraitor new team member]] who has only made two speaking appearances in the show before this episode, and only had a cameo appearance after becoming a member? Not that it wasn't already a ForegoneConclusion if you knew about her comic book counterpart.

* People who watch ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' on Website/{{Crunchyroll}} should take extra caution during the second season's Sports Festival arc. The episode selector shows multiple episodes ahead of the one you're currently watching, and one episode is titled "Todoroki vs Bakugo", spoiling the fact that Midoriya will lose his fight against Todoroki.

* In ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption'', there's a sidequest early in the game about people who go missing in the hills. It's titled "American Appetites" and is revealed in the 3rd (and last) part to be about [[spoiler: [[ImAHumanitarian cannibals]]]].
** The final mission before the PlayableEpilogue is titled "The Last Enemy That Shall Be Destroyed". Even though they tried to hide it by leaving off the last two words ([[spoiler:Is Death]]), if you're familiar with that quote, then it should come as no surprise that [[spoiler:TheHeroDies]].

* Similar to the ''Literature/JohnDiesAtTheEnd'' example above, we have ''WebAnimation/MegaManDiesAtTheEnd''. Guess what happens at the end of the series? [[spoiler: [[WebAnimation/SonicForHire Sonic]] kills him]].
** Mega Man kind of dies at the end of Season 1, but turns out that was just a trick made by the creators.
* A minor case in ''{{WebAnimation/RWBY}}'', the title spoils who become members of the titular team before it is announced in the show.
