* ''{{Penn and Teller}}'s Fool Us'', a television series in which they guess how various magic tricks were performed, often invoked this. In theory, if a contestant didn't fool them the secret to their trick was revealed to all. In practice, several times Penn deliberately gave a vague comment that proved they knew the secret, without actually giving anything away. Any time Teller's diagrams were used to reveal the trick, they were shown to the magicians, and then disposed of in various novel ways before either the studio or TV audience saw them.

* In episode 52 of ''SonicX'', Sonic kneels down before Amy, offering her a flower. In the original version, his mouth moves but no sound comes out, but whatever he says makes Amy happy enough to hug him. Unfortunately in the dubbed version, they actually gave him voiced words ("I'll always be around," or something like that) which didn't quite carry the same emotion.

** A "making of" feature showed one take of Creator/TomHanks doing the line read, with Gump giving a short speech about his experience to the effect of "In Vietnam, your best friend can get shot, and your Lieutenant could lose his legs."

* In ''Film/ForrestGump'', Gump's speech about Vietnam at the huge protest rally on the Mall in Washington, DC is left unheard due to a sound system failure--all we hear is him saying at the end, "and that's all I have to say about that." Though this did not "unreveal" a major pivotal point of the plot, it still might have been interesting to hear what this character would have said about it. Possibly RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment on the part of the writers, due to the divisive nature of the Vietnam issue among the Baby Boomers to whom this film is a sort of anthem.

* The rather infamous series finale of ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' did not reveal the "historic speech" made by Archer that supposedly impacted the founding of the Federation, as it was presented as a holographic recording aboard the TNG's Enterprise, and cut to Riker and other TNG characters commenting about it after the intro.

*** Some Fans interpret that Timmy's parents are named after show creator Butch Hartman's parents [[spoiler: Elmer and Carol]] since Butch ''did'' name Timmy after his brother. It seems he's trying to give us that hint without actually outright saying it.

* The original ''{{Film/Highlander}}'' does this with the nature of the immortals. We’re never given a reason why some people are granted immortality and forced into this competition, they just are. When asked about it, Ramirez flat out says that nobody knows and nobody will ever know, [[MST3KMantra so there’s no point in trying to solve the mystery]]. [[FranchiseZombie The sequels]] tried to subvert this and give an explanation, [[VoodooShark which quickly proved to be a bad idea]].
* ''Film/KPax'': [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane Is prot an alien or just some guy suffering from mentally illness]]? There’s a lot of evidence for both answers and everytime it looks like the film will have a solid answer, a new question arises.
* ''{{Film/Rashomon}}'' never gives a solid answer about the circumstances of the samurai’s murder. Everyone questioned (except ''maybe'' the Woodcutter) [[UnreliableNarrator give blatantly biased accounts]] and there isn’t any physical evidence. It briefly seems like the Woodcutter’s story is definitely the true one... but then, [[spoiler:it turns out that he was the one who stole the pearl dagger, throwing his testimony into doubt]]. The movie ends shortly after, with the characters more uncertain than ever.

* Being unmasked is the greatest humiliation a MaskedLuchador can face. So the wise luchador hero takes precautions, like ElSanto in ''El Santo vs. the Martian Invasion''. When a nefarious Martian ''rudo'' removes El Santo's mask, he discovers that the CrazyPrepared luchador wore a second mask underneath that one!
