* ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' has its first major reveal during the Safe Ending, where you find out that Ace is Gentarou Hongou, the CEO of Cradle Pharmaceuticals and the perpetrator of the first Nonary Game. [[spoiler:Except he isn't Zero. Zero, as revealed by the True Ending, is June, and that you've actually been playing as her, not Junpei, the whole time. ItMakesSenseInContext.]]
** And there are plenty of reveals in the endings of ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'', but also a dramatic one that occurs when triggered as a result of player action. The first time you restore your game and switch route to change your answer in the Nonary Game, but your opponent also changes their answer, you might feel cheated; the second time, [[spoiler:''Sigma'' yells at them for cheating ''in-character'', revealing that he's aware of everything you are, including restoring and restarting the game.]].

If you're set up for this but it's then subverted by not revealing it, it's TheUnreveal. When made too obvious ahead of time, it's TheUntwist or a CaptainObviousReveal (depending on how it happens). If it comes out of nowhere and serves no purpose other than to be a twist, it's a ShockingSwerve and/or a case of TheDogWasTheMastermind. If the thing revealed is named in the title, then its TheNamesake. If a DrivingQuestion is involved, this is where it's finally put to rest. If it happens in the first episode of a series, it's probably a FirstEpisodeSpoiler. Can overlap with RememberedTooLate.

* ''BrokenSaints'' has quite a few, but the most memorable comes in at the end of the penultimate chapter. Palmer is found dead, and in a storm of MindRape the face of the ''real'' BigBad is shown. The hobo Raimi encountered by the alley, AKA, Lear Dunham.

** Throughout ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigations'' the question we've been building up to is whether the Yatagarasu is Kay's father Byrne Faraday, as Kay claims, or Calisto Yew, as Yew claims. In the penultimate challenge of the game it's told that the answer is neither option. The Yatagarasu was actually ''three people''--Faraday, Yew, and Faraday's partner Detective Badd, putting their respective skills together to commit the thefts. Compared to that the reveal of the BigBad is almost minor.

* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'': The corpse found in Chapter 5 is [[spoiler: Mukuro Ikusaba's... except she's been dead for weeks now. She and Junko switched places for reasons unknown, and it was Mukuro who attacked Monobear in Chapter 1 and was killed for it. Her corpse was re-used to make it seem as though she has been recently murdered. And the person behind Monobear? The real Junko.]] Making this even funnier is the fact that the followers of the Something Awful Let's Play had been joking about [[spoiler: Junko being the mastermind]] since the end of Chapter 3.



* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' has [[spoiler: Miyo Takano]] being the BigBad, and the reason why there are so many arcs. There are other reveals though, but most are in the sound novels.
** The reason everyone goes crazy.
** Also for the viewer/reader (and Keiichi during Atonement chapter), the big reveal of unreliable narration during the question arcs. Go watch Onikakushi-hen knowing [[spoiler: Keiichi is delusional and the girls really are just trying to help.]] So many little things suddenly make sense. Plus, [[spoiler: Rika's dimension-jumping and Hanyuu's existence.]]

* [=EP7=] of ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' has the series' most important reveal. Basically, [[spoiler:Lion is an alternate universe counterpart of Beatrice, who is also Shannon and Kanon. The person who all three of these personalities belong to is in fact known as Yasu, and [[AmbiguousGender their gender is unknown]], which unlike most examples of that trope is actually a plot point brought up in the series itself]]. The game facts don't seem to apply, until you consider the fact that 17 people isn't clarified by [[spoiler: multiple identities]], allowing for a murderer to exist among a population of 17 fully recognized people.

* ''VisualNovel/War13thDay'' builds up to these beautifully. First, with a healthy dose of {{Foreshadowing}}, [[spoiler:it leads you to think that it's AllJustADream. Then, you discover that it's ''not''. Just wait until you reach the ending...]]
