* ''Literature/AmericanGods'': The "war" between the old gods and the new that drives most of the plot turns out to have been arranged by Wednesday and Loki, ostensibly on opposite sides, to draw power from the battle.

* In its SpiritualSuccessor ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'', the ending reveals that the Lifehold Core's quantum computer that was supposed to house the consciousnesses of everyone in NLA has been destroyed since the moment the ''White Whale'' made planetfall on Mira. This renders everything you've been told about the nature of mimeosome operation invalid, and opens up a far bigger mystery of just how in the world any humans in NLA can still be alive in the first place.

*''Series/{{Crossroads}}'': This revival of an old ITV soap, which replaced the old motel setting with a modern hotel, had flopped, and got relaunched only to fail even harder. So in the final episode, it was revealed to be all in the imagination of a supermarket sales assistant! In other words, everything that happened in the revived series was AllJustADream, while leaving the continuity of the original series intact.

* 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 [[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).

* Defied in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'': the reveal is that ''the player character is not John Doe'' (Solid Snake's father); you have been playing as a body double of the original Big Boss the whole time! However, this technically means that your player character is the final boss of MetalGear and NOT John Doe, meaning that technically he is even MORE important to the Metal Gear franchise than Big Boss himself! As for Big Boss, he claims that they are two halves of the same legend.

* In 1980 sci-fi musical TheApple: In the very end, Mr. Topps - never mentioned before minutes he arrives - appears in a Rolls Royce and takes all hippies to heaven or a new planet (or both). This means: 1.) Up to this point, you could interpret this film as anti-commerce message when Bibi is corrupted by Bugalow's business but is not necessarily a stand-in for hippy culture. With this ending the movie completely takes sides in favor of the hippes and portrays them and their love/peace-cause as unambiguously good. 2.) All of Alphies visions are to be taken literally (Bugalow is not metaphorically that devil but literally, Bibi does not take the forbidden fruit metaphorically but literally etc.) 3.) Alphie and Bibi are no longer the main characters of the movie but the hippies - not introduced until very late in the film and receiving about zero character development or being spotlighted on their culture - are and get an eschatological meaning. A sequence where Mr. Topps creates the world and Bugalow falls from grace in the beginning of the movie was planned but never filmed.

* For most of ''VisualNovel/LiarLiar'' we're meant to believe Yukari was spurned into murdering her cheating ex-boyfriend by jealousy and that it was her StartOfDarkness. The very end to the sequel reveals this is normal for her, as she's killed every boyfriend and girlfriend of hers since ''elementary''.

* In ''VisualNovel/War13thDay'', the True End reveals that the entire story is through Wildfire's biased perception. In the post-credits scene, Ambrosia even makes this clear.
-->'''Ambrosia:''' Her perspective is biased and, to tell you the truth, terribly inaccurate. Do we seem unrealistic? Over-the-top? Annoying, even? That is simply how Lady Wildfire sees us. You could say she sees a satire of us in her mind.

* ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2'' is set at a new and improved "modern" version of the titular pizzaria 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]].
