->''"Unfortunately, the film is probably better because of the ending. It would have been a nice movie about people working hard on foreign policy, but it acquired this tragic sensibility. Itís a horror movie when you know [[UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump the twist ending.]]"''
-->-- '''Ben Rhodes''', discussing the UsefulNote/BarackObama documentary, ''The Final Year''
It would have been more pignant if Obama had been a better President and and Trump were a worse president. Don't pick a politcal example if you don't want people screwing with this.

* In the ''Series/RedDwarf'' episode "Give & Take", Lister is kidnapped by an insane medical droid, Asclepius. When Rimmer and Kryten rescue him they accidentally destroy a specimen jar containing two kidneys, then discover that Lister is missing his kidneys, and presume the kidneys they destroyed were Lister's, which had been removed by Asclepius. However, the plot is resolved when [[ItMakesSenseInContext they travel back in time to remove the kidneys from a past version of Lister and implant them in the present-day Lister]], meaning that his kidneys had already been removed before he even met Asclepius - the implication being that the droid was actually perfectly sane, and was trying to give Lister a life-saving operation, and if Rimmer and Kryten had not waded in the events of the episode would never have happened.

** Ending B may count as well, depending on whether or not you consider it a proper ending (the next three endings are effectively the final half of the game, after all.) 9S discovers that humans were extinct long before the aliens showed up, meaning that the androids' millennia-long war against the machine lifeforms has been utterly pointless. The endgame of route C/D also has some pretty game-changing twists, such as the revelation that [=YoRHa=] black boxes are made from machine lifeform cores, making the protagonists and their enemies NotSoDifferent, and the revelation that both sides of the conflict have been conspiring to perpetuate a [[TheForeverWar Forever War]], to the point that [=YoRHa=], which was supposed to be the secret weapon against the machine lifeforms, was created with countermeasures to destroy them should they ever gain too much of a foothold. Try playing through the whole game again knowing that all the main characters' actions, and even ''their very existence'' is all utterly pointless. No wonder 9S became an utterly distraught StrawNihilist by the end of the game.

* "Harper Valley PTA" is about a small town widow calling out the other women of her town on their hypocricy: Sending her an anonymous letter complaining about her "inappropriate" dress and behavior (given that she had a teenage daughter to be an example for), while many of them had habits just as bad or worse. The last line of the song ("The day my Mama socked it to the Harper Valley P.T.A.") reveals that the narrator was the aforementioned daughter; flipping the song from "relating the events of a minor scandal" to "Daughter bragging about her mom's Moment of Awesome." Now that last line is so well known (arguably the best known line of the song), many don't even realize it was a twist.

* "The Invaders," a classic episode of ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'', features a lone woman (Agnes Moorehead) living alone in a rustic cabin in the middle of a windswept prairie. As she goes about her chores, she's suddenly attacked by two tiny creatures in space suits. The rest of the episode, which is filmed almost completely dialogue-free beyond the unnamed woman's grunts and screams, sees her terrified of the titular invaders, which repeatedly come after her and attack with laser weapons and a knife. After she finally succeeds in killing the aliens, we hear one of them beaming a desperate message saying to avoid this planet and its "race of giants." A case of AliensSpeakingEnglish? No--the camera then pans to reveal that the spaceship the woman is destroying reads "U.S. AIR FORCE." Suddenly, we realize that the "human" woman we were rooting for is actually a ''sixty-foot tall alien'', and the "invaders" were humans from Earth.

** To elaborate: This PSA shows a young high school student trying to build up the courage to talk to a girl he's crushing on. We see him leave her a cute note, her friends whisper to her about him, and a generally sweet love story which ends with the boy finally approaching her in the school gym...and that's when the doors open and a student with a gun comes in, ready to open fire. Watching the PSA a second time reveals that the young man was in the background of all of the previous shots, with clues indicating that he was miserable: he's bullied in the hallway and, as a teacher passes by, he mimes "shooting" her with a finger gun. The idea is that people often miss "warning signs" of dangerous behavior, and given that many viewers were surprised by the ending, it certainly proved its point.

** In another episode, Ted and Barney go out to a bar and decide to live like there's no tomorrow. No matter what Ted does, it seems that the Universe approves and the night goes incredibly well for him. The next morning, he finds out that he had been butt-dialing Marshall all night, and much of his night had been captured on Marshall's voicemail. Listening to it again with a clearer head makes Ted realize what a complete and utter jerk he had been.

* ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2'' is set at a new and improved "modern" version of the titular pizzeria from [[Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys the first game]], which had closed down some time ago, with brand new high-tech animatronics put in place while the original ones are placed in storage and used for parts. The original guard now works the day shift too. However, Phone Guy is still around, despite being seemingly killed years ago at the old location, and several Retraux minigames seen after dying hint at something sinster happening at the new location, similar to the backstory hidden in the first game. It isn't until the completion of Night 5 that it all makes sense - Jeremy's paycheck is dated 1987, and therefore the events of the game happen ''before'' those of the first game, and during said game's [[SerialKiller bloody]] [[WouldHurtAChild past]].
