** King Candy is [[spoiler:Turbo in disguise]].
** Vanellope is on her game's arcade machine, showing that while she is glitched, she is part of the official roster of her game and not just TheMissingno. This somewhat subtle distinction is important, and affects the plot greatly.

** King Candy is [[spoiler:Turbo in disguise]].

This somewhat subtle distinction Her image is important, on the side of her game box, meaning that she's a legitimate character who was meant to be part of Sugar Rush from the beginning, but was made into a glitch after the fact.]]
** Sugar Rush's ruler King Candy [[spoiler: is actually Turbo, a character from an older game who's an arcade cautionary tale about why ''not'' to game-jump, as his doing so led to his game being unplugged. He escaped to Sugar Rush,

* ''Roleplay/RubyQuest'' has several moments that would qualify, but the biggest is probably "Today is october 31st".

to:

* ''Roleplay/RubyQuest'' has several moments that would qualify, but one of the biggest is probably "Today the following, which is october 31st".important because [[spoiler: it shows that Ruby and Tom's attempts to escape have been going on far longer than they thought:]]
-->'''Bella''': Today is October 31st.
** For sheer WhamShot-iness, there's also the second-to-last-panel reveal that the 'extremely dangerous' Subject #6 was [[spoiler: not Tom Nook, the prisoner in Upper Lab B, like the players thought he was. Tom Nook was really Subject #5. The ''real'' Subject #6? [[OneSteveLimit The other Tom]], the cat who'd been Ruby's companion since almost the beginning.]]

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': The most important character in Homestuck is... [[spoiler: Gamzee Makara. Though, Lil' Cal may be more likely at this point.]]
** Also, Sburb's purpose is [[spoiler: creating universes. And the trolls created ''ours''.]]
** "[[spoiler: YOU MADE AN UNBEATABLE BOSS]] IS WHAT YOU DID."
** The Tumor [[spoiler: is what created the Green Sun. And Doc Scratch planned it all.]]
** The reveal of [[spoiler: Lord English.]]
** The 06/17/12 update. [[spoiler: UU's real name is Calliope. She will fall asleep and her brother will wake up if she hears her brother's name, and vice-versa. She is a Cherub, a species of sociopathic loners by nature, to the point that UU pretends to be a troll because she finds them preferable to her own species in every way possible. And finally, her face is shown. She looks like a young female version of Lord English.]]
** Reveals happen pretty often in Homestuck (see the WhamEpisode page for more details), to the point where Hussie has a tendency to do it pretty anticlimactically whenever the twist was guessed by too many in advance. For example, in relation to part of the above-spoilered reveal:

to:

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'':
**
The narration states that the most important character in Homestuck ''Homestuck'' is... Gamzee Makara, the stoner juggalo? This reveal and its general absurdity become a RunningGag, as it turns out Gamzee has been involved in some ridiculously plot significant events... that all happened off-screen. Even when he does do something significant on-screen, it's all undercut by his strange vernacular, religious devotion to Music/InsaneClownPosse and tendency to be drawn [[StylisticSuck incredibly poorly]].
** Also, the purpose of Sburb, the reality-warping video game which kicks off the plot, is only revealed after four and a half Acts.
[[spoiler: Gamzee Makara. Though, Lil' Cal may be more likely at this point.Completing the game allows the players to create a universe. And the internet trolls who heckled the protagonists created ''ours''.]]
** Also, Halfway through Act 5, a mysterious demon appears and forces the trolls to hide while he destroys everything they've built. The demon's identity is implied, but it's not until the flash animation "Jade: Enter" that it the demon appears on-screen and his identity is made explicit. [[spoiler: It turns out to be Jack Noir, an antagonist who lived a universe away from the trolls, who managed to gain omnipotence through a fluke in Sburb's purpose is [[spoiler: creating universes. And the trolls created ''ours''.mechanics.]]
** "[[spoiler: YOU MADE AN UNBEATABLE BOSS]] IS WHAT YOU DID."
** The Tumor End of Act 5 Animation shows the character's attempt to destroy the Green Sun, the source of the villains' power, using a giant bomb known as the Tumor. Everything more or less goes according as planned until the character's actually arrive at the site of the Green Sun, where the whole scheme gets turned on its head by one thing. [[spoiler: is what created The Sun's not there. And as the Tumor explodes, the Green Sun. And Doc Scratch planned it all.Sun forms out of it. Meaning, the characters got tricked into creating the very thing they meant to destroy, unwittingly helping ''create'' their enemies.]]
** The reveal Intermission 2, which lies between Act 5 and Act 6, shows the true form of [[spoiler: the elusive [[GreaterScopeVillain Lord English.]]
English]] and establishes his relationships with important characters like Doc Scratch, Lil Cal and Gamzee Makara.
** The 06/17/12 update.update reveals the true nature of the mysterious character who was only known by their screen name, [=UranianUmbra=]. [[spoiler: UU's real name is Calliope. She will fall asleep and her brother will wake up if she hears her brother's name, and vice-versa. She is a Cherub, a species of sociopathic loners by nature, to the point that UU pretends to be a troll Troll because she finds them preferable to her own species in every way possible. And finally, her face is shown. She looks like a young female version of Lord English.]]
