* In the opening FMV of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'', Rikku and new character Paine infiltrate Luca Stadium where Yuna is throwing a concert. They proceed to assault several guards until they hitch a ride to reach Yuna, which triggers a BossBattle against ''her''. It isn't revealed until Rikku and Paine chase her to the docks that [[spoiler:Yuna is actually an impostor (although the voice is a dead giveaway) and the real Yuna would later arrive at the docks to assist Rikku and Paine.]]

*** The cover that provides the page image? [[spoiler:Superman overheard an oracle saying that Superman would destroy "his son" on the 17th, so he tries to drive Jimmy away before that happened. After he succeeds, he explains the truth to Jimmy - only to learn that the oracle meant an artificial ''sun'' he'd created long ago - and cancelled adoptions can't be renewed.]]

** All too often, though, the torment of another character by Superman (often someone he's supposed to be friends or loved ones with) really does occur, and for no apparent constructive reason at all. In one silver age comic, Superman puts Lois Lane (You know? The love of his life?) through an embarrassing and gut-wrenching physical transformation without her permission, allegedly to keep a crook from recognizing her. Of course, even supposing that reason held any water at all, that still doesn't excuse how Superman pretends not to recognize Lois immediately after the transformation, and even out-and-out insults her on her appearance.

It's a widespread tactic in serial fiction: show a teaser portraying the normally [[IdealHero upright hero]] [[KickTheDog acting in an evil and despicable manner]], causing the audience to wonder "Gasp! How could this be?" and then, hopefully, to read/watch/listen to the thing you're advertising.

* In an episode of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', Tuvok enters the mess hall and, driven just an inch too far by [[TheScrappy Neelix's relentless good cheer]], [[TakeThatScrappy strangles him]] [[BewareTheNiceOnes to death]]. It turns out to be [[AllJustADream a holodeck simulation]]; Tuvok was having difficulty controlling his emotions after [[MindMeld mind melding]] with a psychopathic member of the crew, and he'd hoped the simulation would let him work out his emotional imbalance.

* A fourth-season episode of ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' opens with Archer and Hoshi in a blazing argument where she berates him for every little thing wrong on the ship and he suggests that she can take a shuttlepod out if she's unhappy, also, she's putting on weight. Then she grins and calls the last bit a nice touch--she's helping him rehearse for the arrival of the Tellarites, whose [[PlanetOfHats species Hat]] is constantly arguing and insulting whomever they're talking to.

** Issue #203, has [[{{Cyborg}} Bunnie]] pinning Sonic under her foot and preparing to blast him with her arm cannon, complete with the caption "Bunnie Gone Bad?!". Actually reading it reveals [[spoiler: the Iron Queen, being a techno-mage, has taken control of her cybernetic limbs and is forcing her to fight the others]]. They did the same thing next issue with Monkey Khan, though, like the above example, it's not at all suspenseful if you've read the previous issue.

* The cover to ''ComicBook/CaptainAmerica'' #153 shows Cap beating up on a black man, as the Falcon attempts to stop him. [[spoiler: We soon learn that the "Captain America" on the cover isn't the real deal, but rather the 1950s Cap, who went insane due to a faulty version of the Super-Soldier Serum being used on him.]]
* A JLA storyline had Comicbook/AdamStrange kidnapping the League and putting them to work as slaves for the aliens rebuilding his planet, apparently driven insane by the death of his wife. At the end of the first half, J'onn J'onzz joins forces with him. [[spoiler: It's all a ruse to confuse the invaders.]]

** "Sleeper" starts with a man fully clad in black surprising and robbing some guy of his high tech briefcase and stealing information from it. He then escapes through the elevator, changing to a formal suit on the way, revealing its Jimmy Olsen.[[spoiler: Turns out he's doing this because the DDS are blackmailing him into finding out what Chloe is hacking and armed him with the spy toys to do it.]]

In season 5 he infiltrates the Circle of The Black Thorn, even killing [[spoiler: Drogyn]] to prove his loyalty. His friends are convinced his new position has taken him to the DarkSide.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' has used this multiple times. The first and most shocking being when the teaser featured a woman being tied up and tortured by a sadistic captor, the police storm the place only to reveal... it's Dean! [[spoiler: Turns out it wasn't, they were tracking a shapeshifter who assumed Dean's form. Another shapeshifter version happens in "Slash Fiction", where the brothers are shown robbing a bank, herding the staff into a safe and machine-gunning them to death. Turns out it's a plot to frame Sam and Dean.]]

[[spoiler: He actually does kill her, then the episode goes back in time to explain why, including his debating with her about it. He then works very hard to bring her back after the bug infecting her has left.]]

Even before the second part, "The Witch's Familiar", aired, virtually the entire fanbase knew ''this'' was going to turn out to be more than it initially appeared, and the cliffhanger was ''how'' it would be so.
* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' did this with the episode called "The Enterprise Incident". Kirk, seemingly against Starfleet orders, invades Romulan space and gets the Enterprise captured. Spock then betrays the ship by siding with the Romulans, and testifies that Kirk has gone insane from the pressures of command, before killing Kirk in self defense. [[spoiler: This all turns out to be a plan set up by Starfleet to allow Kirk and Spock to steal a Romulan cloaking device, while providing Starfleet with plausible deniability should the deal go south.]]

* ''Series/{{Glee}}'' loves doing this in their previews. One of the most egregious ones was for the second episode of season two, where Finn is shown telling a happy Quinn "I'd be lying if I said I didn't still have feelings for you" followed by a shot of a tearful Rachel looking on. What really happened: Finn followed that statement by reassuring Quinn of his devotion to Rachel, and Quinn was only coming on to Finn in the first place as part of a deal she struck with Rachel to reassure her of Finn's loyalty. There was also the absolutely ridiculous hype when the creators announced [[TonightSomeoneDies a beloved character would die]] in the episode "Funeral," and the speculations included countless popular, major characters only for it to turn out to be [[spoiler: Jean Sylvester, Sue's sister with Down Syndrome, a guest character who had only appeared in six episodes in two seasons]].
* This is sort of a version of this trope: The ''Series/{{House}}'' season 6 finale begins with House sitting in a bathroom, opening a bottle of vicodin, and we're all, "WHAT, WHY DAT VICODIN?!". The narration then goes back to the beginning of the day. In the very end of the episode, the situation is pretty much what it looked like in the opening of the episode, [[spoiler: but Cuddy shows up, having broken up with Lucas, and wants to try a relationship with House, just preventing him from taking the pill]].

It gave every impression of making viewers think that [[spoiler: Sybil and Branson]], one of the most popular couples on the show, might be headed to a break-up or at least some major tension. Instead, what happened was: [[spoiler: Sybil was totally on-board with Branson's decision to escape Ireland to Downton and on her way after him]].

** One of the subplots of the first season involved Chuck's animosity towards his ex-Stamford University roommate Bryce Larkin (played by Matt Bomer, who would go on to voice [[WesternAnimation/SupermanUnbound Superman himself]], [[HilariousInHindsight amusingly enough]]), who framed Chuck for selling test answers to the other students in order to get him expelled. [[spoiler: It turns out that Bryce did this in order to keep Chuck from being forcefully recruited into the CIA, as he felt Chuck was too good a person to be mixed up in their shadiness, didn't want his life to be risked, and deserved a chance to live his own life.]]
** Much later in the third season, an episode opens with Chuck chasing a man and killing him in cold blood. [[spoiler: The man was TheMole and was going to attempt to kill Chuck, and as it turns out, Chuck didn't even kill him - Casey did.]]

[[spoiler: Late in the game reveals that Celica lost her soul to the BigBad, and this Celica is actually just her body as a vessel being used to kill the other hero, Alm.]]
