* ''Manga/FairyTail''
**In Fairy Tail Zero, toward the end, it's revealed that Zera, Mavis' friend and the only other survivor of Red Lizard, is, in fact, a [[ImaginaryFriend special illusion that she created, which is only visible to her]], since [[DeadAllAlong the real Zera died of her wounds on the day Blue Skull attacked]]. Its also revealed that the other Fairy Tail founders knew that Zera wasn't real, but kept it secret for Mavis' sake.
**A similar twist to the above occurs in the Welcome to Fairy Hills side story. With an unpaid request that many dismissed as a prank, the eponymous dormitory's crotchety and abrasive old landlady, Hilda, hires Lucy to do a treasure hunt, insisting that she keep it secret from the tenants. Once Lucy finds the treasure, she calls out to Hilda, but Erza comes over. After Lucy finally tells Erza about the treasure hunt and the person who sent her on it, Erza tells Lucy that Hilda has been dead for six years, which means that Lucy was interacting with a ghost all along.
**In the Natsu and Asuka side story, Natsu has to do everything Asuka tells him to after losing a sharpshooting challenge against her. In the climax, when Natsu defeats the thieves trying to steal Asuka's snow globe by shooting down their gliders (pushing Asuka's hat down to make her think she made the shot with her popgun), it's made clear that [[ILetYouWin he lost on purpose]], and thus went through everything ''[[FriendToAllChildren willingly]]''.

* The ending to ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'' turns the story from a rescue mission to save a young girl from a bunch of amazing flying racists, into a multi-dimensional hopping MindScrew that ends with the player character being killed off after TheReveal that he is both the protagonist (as the player character), and the BigBad (as an NPC), and that the girl he was rescuing is his biological daughter.

In particular, the phrase "[[ArcWords Bring us the girl and wipe away the debt]]", rather than being an ultimatum by his creditors, was actually proof that he sold his daughter to the Luteces in the first place.

* ''Film/NatureOfTheBeast'' stars Creator/LanceHenriksen as an uptight office drone and Creator/EricRoberts as a charming drifter. It's established that one of them is a white collar criminal with a stash of cash and one of them is a serial killer. Roberts' character insists on accompanying Henriksen, using the fact that he "knows what's in his briefcase" as leverage. Every time Roberts sets his sights on a passerby, against Henriksen's pleas, that person winds up dead. In the end, it's revealed that ''Henriksen'' is actually the serial killer (with a [[KnifeNut briefcase full of knives]]) and Roberts the white collar criminal. Roberts has a death wish and is toying with a killer the whole time, driving him to indulge his murderous impulses against his will.

* ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/159537/wonderful Wonderful]]'' is about a day Ditzy Doo will have. It'll be a pretty nice day, on balance, even if there are things that seem odd about it. And then ''one word'' hits you in the feelings with the help of all those helping verbs.

* ''NowhereMan'', an early UPN drama, was about a man who was [[UnPerson UnPersoned]] over a compromising photograph of U.S. Soldiers executing Third World peasants. He traveled the country trying to unravel the conspiracy that was behind his erasure and reclaim his old life. After twenty-odd episodes of MindScrew and conflicting explanations about why the photo was important, the finale closed with TheReveal that his old life never existed. He was really a government agent that had been captured by the conspiracy and implanted with false memories, and his entire cross-country odyssey had been a test of how much of the lie he would believe. This may have been intended to lead into a second season, but it was never produced.
* In all places, the family sitcom ''YesDear''. An episode revolves around the lead character Greg's reluctant attendance at a therapy session. The episode consists of flashbacks to elements of his life that have scarred him in the present day. At the end of the session, right after he leaves, the psychologist (played by [[Series/SpinCity Michael Boatman]]) comes to a realization that the whole thing was a trick. The ending features an AffectionateParody of ''Film/TheUsualSuspects'' as he drops his cup of coffee in shock, and the camera cuts to a limping Greg gradually walking normally (his leg had fallen asleep).

** [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/55143/1/trust/the-pretender Trust]] has Trixie brought before Celestia and chewed out for her antics in attempting to impress everyone with her prowess, resulting in everyone relying on her. Celestia explains how it can trap you in a cage, and when you let ponies down, it can have horrific consequences once they have begun depending on you. She loses her temper with Trixie, despite the unicorn's cowering, and eventually banishes her from her sight, before summoning Shining Armor to ask him if he has begun training others in his spell, only to find he has been slacking off because he trusts that Celestia will keep everyone safe. She reiterates the need for him to train another in his magic before she heads outside for the daily sun lowering ceremony.
