* KenAkamatsu loves doing this, especially in ''MahouSenseiNegima''. It's still impossible to tell it's a HaremSeries, a subversion thereof, a DoubleSubversion, a parody, or whatever. Then there's the massive amount of ShipTease in the story, much of which seems to exist solely to mess with the heads of the readers. Especially Negi/Asuna. Naturally [[spoiler:Asuna seems to be Negi's aunt.]]

* Before every ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' dev diary outlining a new feature or bugfix, whether it be an expansion pack or simply one of Paradox's expansive patches, Martin "Wiz" Anward will tweet teasers. He will also answer questions on Twitter, sometimes delighting in the [[MathematiciansAnswers glorious non-answers]] he gives when someone asks a question he isn't ready to reveal the answer to.

** Their tendency to post trolling comments on Twitter is actually referenced in the show, as in the Season 5 premiere the Mane Six's special abilities are taken away, and Fluttershy says after discovering she can't talk to birds, "Even tweets don't make sense anymore!"

* Ed Boon, co-creator and current executive producer of the ''MortalKombat'' series, seems to be this [[http://twitter.com/#!/noobde if one checks his Twitter updates.]] For example, several fans wonder why the latest game (''[[VideoGame/MortalKombat9 Mortal Kombat (2011)]]'') doesn't include the [[{{Prince}} purple]] [[InNameOnly ninja]] [[VideoGame/MortalKombat3 Rain]] (the game almost exclusively includes the characters from the original trilogy). One fan proclaims, "RAIN!!!!" on Boon's Twitter, requesting Rain to be added as [[DownloadableContent DLC]]. Boon's reply? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rGA_rZxIV0 This.]] Klassic.

(That being said, Rain did eventually make it onto the roster and then reappeared in [[VideoGame/MortalKombatX the following entry]] as a fairly important NPC.)



* Overkill Software enjoyed teasing their fans when they dropped subtle and vague hints leading towards a secret in ''PAYDAYTheHeist''. Every time a question was asked, the creators replied with answers that were basically "No except yes" or "It is quite possible."
* Ever since Mojang found out about ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'s'' UrbanLegendOfZelda Herobrine, every single update changelog has included a line stating "Removed Herobrine". WordOfGod on the topic consists mostly of flat out stating that there's no Herobrine and that the entries were deliberately put there to toy with the community but also includes a good bit of SuspiciouslySpecificDenial, refusal to comment, and [[FlipFlopOfGod declaration that everything you've heard is true]] (depending on who at Mojang you ask, what day it is, the current status of the tide, and wither or not Herobrine is currently behind them).
* The trailer reveal for Nintendo's ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' on the Wii-U and 3DS starts off showing what appears to be a ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' game until the letter the Villager drops is revealed to have the Smash Bros logo on the seal. The trailer then shows off the actual game.
** The reveal of the Wii Fit Trainer as a playable character was planned right from the start to be a big "WTF?" for the fans. Masahiro Sakurai has even stated, for the record, that they chose her to be in the game because ''no-one'' would expect or predict her to be in the game.
** Other notable teases include unveiling a Rayman trophy on a day Robin and Lucina would be announced, and a screenshot of a Mii Fighter wearing Meta Knight's mask the day before Meta Knight was confirmed.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'': On the official soundtrack, Music/TobyFox included a BossRemix of Sans' theme that isn't in the game. The title is actually "Song That Might Play When You Fight Sans". [[spoiler: You only fight Sans in a "Genocide Run", and when you do, the track played is Fox's SignatureSong, "MEGALOVANIA".]]

* The devs of ''KatawaShoujo'' have said that at this point, they don't even know when they're teasing and when they're not. (For instance, their remark that the never-seen principal is a masked wrestler is both a joke, and canon, and it will continue to be canon until and unless he appears in the finished game and turns out not to be a masked wrestler - which he didn't, so he can be assumed to be a masked wrestler.)

* ''Webcomic/FriendlyHostility'' fans have been kept on tenterhooks as the comic approaches its finale, since the status of [[spoiler:Fox and Collin's relationship, which has, until now, been unshakeable]] is far from certain. Reading the commentary may result in seasickness as Fuhr keeps the audience swinging from one conclusion to another. A good example of creator pedigree comes into play here - Fuhr previously [[ShipSinking sunk the ship]] of [[spoiler: Cy and Skids]] in ''BoyMeetsBoy'', and has issued firm statments that certain members of the cast [[spoiler:specifically Skids and Tybalt]] will never see the others again.
