** In chapter 39 of the original story, Fluttershy whispered something to Page. In chapter 10 of this story, Page shares what she said with the rest of the group: [[spoiler:That the original Bearers know her ancestry, and don't blame her in the slightest for what Chrysalis did.]]

\n* ''Podcast/TheAdventureZoneBalance'' has quite a few from the end of ''The Eleventh Hour'' onwards:
** The epilogue of ''Eleventh Hour'' reveals that [[spoiler:Magnus, presumably along with the rest of the THB, created the [[ArtifactOfDoom Grand Relics]].]]
** In the next episode, ''Lunar Interlude IV'', Magnus discovers that [[spoiler:the Voidfish has a child in the employ of the Director.]]
** It is revealed in the final episode of ''The Suffering Game'' that the [[MysteriousProtector Red Robe]] that's been tailing the party for months is actually [[spoiler:[[RedHerringShirt Barry Bluejeans]], a seemingly irrelevant mercenary from the first arc who was presumed dead in the destruction of Phandalin.]]
** ''Lunar Interlude V: Reunion Tour'' features a series of reveals that completely change the context of the entire series. [[spoiler:"Lup" is the name of Taako's twin sister, the spirit of whom is trapped in the [[ParasolOfPain Umbra Staff]]. Taako, Magnus, Merle, Barry, Lup, Davenport, and Director Lucretia were all once Red Robes. The Red Robes weren't mad sorcerers, they were ''astronauts'' - originally from another universe, they were tasked with exploring other planes of existence using a powerful energy source known as [[ThePowerOfCreation the Light of Creation]], but were pursued by [[EldritchAbomination the Hunger]], a malevolent force bent on using the Light to [[AssimilationPlot consume the multiverse]]. The Grand Relics are actually fragments of the Light of Creation, split up by the Red Robes to keep the Hunger from locating their current world. The reason that the THB don't remember any of this is that Lucretia, not agreeing with this plan, used the second Voidfish to [[LaserGuidedAmnesia make them forget about their mission (and anything related to it, such as Barry and Lup) so that she could reclaim the Relics, reform the Light, and use it to destroy the Hunger once and for all.]]]]

* The ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series, being all about very dramatic trials, has some major reveals. Perhaps the most epic is in the second game's final case, where your client, Matt Engarde, turns out to be not the killer, but [[SmugSnake the man who ordered the killing.]] The reveal is so awesome because he [[GoodScarsEvilScars smoothes back his hair to reveal some nasty scars on his eye]], changing his appearance and expression extensively, and then he pulls a glass of brandy out of {{Hammerspace}}. ''In a holding cell.''
** The homepage says "a buttload more informal than Wikipedia", so let's go with some more. The ending to the third game: even after BigBad Dahlia Hawthorne has been defeated for good, there still isn't an actual suspect for the murder. After some further testimony and debate, Phoenix accuses Prosecutor Godot. What makes this a surprise is that so far there's been absolutely nothing to even suggest that person was anywhere NEAR the murder as it happened. But it's not out of nowhere; because the player has to prove they've actually been paying attention by answering "Who do you think the witness saw?" just before the Reveal.
