* 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.

* The editors of DCComics (notably their boss, Dan Didio) purposely misled fans that the 2005 CrisisCrossover series, ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', would get rid of the DarkerAndEdgier approach the company had taken with its characters in recent years. Writer Mark Waid himself said that was the point (though he got censored later). The story itself directly hints at this since the main characters were in fact trying to [[CosmicRetcon change reality back]] to its previous, nicer state (altered during ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''); but it was all a BaitAndSwitch, as those same characters turn out to be ''responsible'' (both directly and indirectly) for all the tragic events, and the series ends in a bloody battle.

* Suda51's old game ''TheSilverCase'' has been in development for a remake for the DS for several years. Early 2010 he showed off the DS port on an internet livestream, proving that it works... but there's no release date.

* Greg Farshtey, the main writer for ''{{Bionicle}}'', is ''technically'' not a LyingCreator, but he exploits ExactWords at every opportunity he can, and then turns around and points out "[[GodNeverSaidThat I never said that]]". This has eventually led to a highly suspicious fandom that picks apart everything he says for even the slightest hint of ambiguity.

* Jim Butcher, author of ''TheDresdenFiles'', is this. It's like crack for wizar... ur, authors. After the ending of "Changes" where [[spoiler:Harry apparently died at the end]] he very promptly stated on his website that the next book will be called [[spoiler: Ghost Story. Yeah, while his many fans are consumed with debate over whether Harry is dead or not. Not to mention whether or not he'll be back in some form or another.]]
