** A variation in ''VideoGame/Persona5'' occurs when it turns out that [[spoiler: the BigBad is the sexual harasser that the protagonist had fought with before the start of the game.]] And then there's the ''true villain'' who's real identity is none other than [[spoiler:'''Igor''', or rather, the Holy Grail, who trapped the real Igor in Mementos and took his place to mislead the protagonist.]]

* In the movie ''Film/NoWayOut'', [[spoiler: the [[TheReveal ending reveals not only that Tom Farrell was a Soviet spy all along]] - though innocent of murdering his girlfriend - but his landlord was his Soviet handler]].

* In another Creator/AgathaChristie example, in ''Crooked House'', the murderer turns out to be [[poiler: the victim's ten year old granddaughter. Her diary reveals her to be a chilling psychopath, who killed her grandfather because he wouldn't let her take ballet lessons, with an implied heavy dose of ForTheEvulz]]

* In this case its played both metaphorically and literally. In ''VideoGame/DeadlyPremonition'' [[spoiler: the happy go lucky Forrest Kaysen turns out to be the Red Seed Killer the whole time- and his faithful companion Willie? He INTRODUCED Kaysen to the Red Seeds. [=SWERY65=] confirmed Willie is Kaysen's "keeper" and was relaying orders from the Red Tree. If you take a closer look at the game map, it's [[http://www.gamesajare.com/2.0/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/GREENVALE.jpg intentionally shaped like him]], part of a bigger background story SWERY left out of the game]].

* Occasionally PlayedForLaughs in ''Series/JoanOfArcadia.'' The whole premise is that God gives Joan various tasks to do by [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith assuming the forms of different individuals]]. Most episodes open with her having a casual conversation with someone, only for that person to turn out to be God; she then usually runs into another form of God later in the episode who tells her that she's not quite finished with her mission. Examples include a pizza delivery man, a seven-year-old girl, a newscaster, a Latina woman waiting for a bus, a heavyset girl in the school library, a Goth student, a butcher, a teen in a school mascot costume, and a street musician with a guitar. Humorously, Joan ''tries'' to become GenreSavvy about it and starts assuming that every stranger who speaks to her is God in a disguise; unfortunately, she's just as likely to get it wrong as she is to be correct.
** It's PlayedForDrama in the episode "Bringeth It On." A teenage girl abandons her baby in a dumpster, and calls the police to report it. Throughout the episode, the higher-ups in the police department keep pushing Will Girardi (Joan's father) to solve the case by focusing on the "unethical" girls at the local high school. Strangely, though, once the mother is finally revealed, the D.A. declines to press charges and the whole incident seems to disappear. Will wonders what happened, and his wife Helen sadly tells him that the mother's boyfriend is the son of a city councilman; when Will asks why she didn't volunteer the information, she points out that everyone was [[DoubleStandard so busy trying to determine which of the high school girls was having sex]] that "nobody ever asked about the father."
** In another, lighter episode, Joan gets involved in a school musical, and the high-maintenance, flamboyantly gay director repeatedly makes her life a living hell. At the end of the episode, he turns out to be one of God's forms, helping her on her mission.

** ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire]]'': Similar to the previous book, but much more convoluted. [[spoiler:Barty Crouch Jr., son of the Ministry official of the same name, spent ''the entire school year'' Polyjuice-morphed into Mad-Eye Moody (requiring many doses of potion every day), in order to carry out an elaborate scheme to kidnap Harry for Voldemort's resurrection ritual. His existence is barely mentioned before the reveal--Harry spots "Barty Crouch" on the Marauder's Map, but assumes it's his father--and there were no clues that "Moody" was an impostor (the real one never even appears until the end).]]

* The first arc of ''Webcomic/{{Unsounded}}''. Surely Cutter, the weird, [[RhymesOnADime rhyming]], over-the-top [[LizardFolk lizard man]], couldn't be the engineer behind the FantasticNuke! But he is, and a member of the [[MadScientist Black Tongues]] to boot.

But he is, and a member of the [[MadScientist Black Tongues]] to boot. The only real clue is that his bizarre and sadistic personality is seemingly not typical of lizard-men, though we only see a few others. [[spoiler:He was apparently a guinea pig for the magical MadScientist Delicieu, and may or may not be Delicieu himself implanted into that lizard's body.]]
