* ''Series/GameOfThrones''. During the third episode of season 6 it appears as if the show is about to reveal what [[spoiler: Ned Stark saw at the Tower of Joy]] during one of [[spoiler:Bran's visions]]. However, prior to the revelation being made [[spoiler: The Three Eyes Raven stops Bran from seeing anymore and tells him (and the viewers) "enough for one day".]]. This was not a major plot point in the show prior to this episode, but was of major interest to fans of the original book series because of how it relates to the popular fan theory that [[spoiler: Jon Snow is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen]].

* ''ComicBook/VForVendetta'' has V's identity. We're left guessing as to what sort of person he was and whether he was anyone we'd know -- or even whether he was speaking literally or metaphorically when denying the LukeIAmYourFather possibility. We go through several fake DreamSequence reveals, before Evey finally realizes that it's important that his identity never be revealed, and that she should instead take up his mantle. This is because V the man had long been lost so that V the persona could take his place. The identity of the man he was before he became V would never be as important as the idea. It becomes a deeply symbolic variation of BecomingTheMask.

* The ''Manga/CageOfEden ending was really rushed (because the manga was cancelled) and several mysteries remain unresolved. For example, the manga never explains if [[spoiler: they're actually clones, used technology to bring them into the future, or them ending in that future was just a mere coincidence. Even Hades's identity remain unknow.]]

* There are two in particular in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi''. The first in Episode 4 [[spoiler:when Ange sees "something" in Kawabata's house that dumbstrikes her and makes her have some revelation about magic.]] The other, much more important [[spoiler:when the same Ange opens Eva's diary, containing the truth of Rokkenjima… showing us worldless, quickly flashing images that don't reveal anything significant. We just know that the contents of the book are shocking enough to drive Ange to suicide and stubbornly deny everything in it.]]

** One story arc has Haley start speaking in a cypher as a result of trauma partly caused by her (at the time) unrequited love for Elan. A cleric tells her that her affliction will clear up when she is ready to reveal the secret, so in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0309.html this strip]], she tries to tell Elan various secrets (but none of them is ''the'' secret that will cure her). Decrypted, her secrets are: "Elan, I'm in love with you. Completely in love. – My dad is being held ransom by an evil dictator. – I'm not really in the Thieves' Guild anymore. – I cheat at solitaire. – I have a tattoo you've never seen. – I kissed a girl once. – OK, OK, more than once! – Elan, it turns out i may not be exactly what you would call..."

* In the first episode of ''[[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Power Rangers Super Megaforce]]'', Gosei gives the team the Super Mega Morphers and the Ranger Keys. Jake, the Black Megaforce Ranger, notices his Super Mega key is green and asks what's up with that. Gosei's response is to say "There's a very good explanation for that..." and gets cut off by explosions. We never find out the reason.

* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' has the [[AlmightyJanitor Janitor's]] real name, which is was going to be revealed during the finale, until they found out the show was [[UnCancelled renewed for another season on a different network]]. Multiple episodes reference the fact, and the Janitor has said his name to at least one person (although knowing him, it was probably a lie). Apparently the show creator has thought up several names, but lets the actor playing the Janitor disapprove of any ones he doesn't like.
** Also, in the beginning of the show the Janitor only interacted with J.D. This was so that, in case of sudden cancellation, there would be a handy Reveal -- the fact that the Janitor was a figment of J.D.'s imagination. The show increased in popularity and the Janitor started interacting with other characters.
*** {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in one episode when The Janitor tells J.D. that he doesn't even know his name. J.D. takes a quick look at the Janitor's name tag but he quickly covers it up with his hand.
*** In another episode, new chief of medicine Dr. Maddox demands to know the Janitor's name. When he refuses to tell her, she looks at his name tag only to find that it says 'The Janitor.'
** In the [[strike:series]] eighth season finale on ABC, J.D. is leaving Sacred Heart and wants closure with the Janitor. He asks the Janitor's name, and the Janitor tells him, and points out that J.D. never actually asked before. Closure found, JD leaves the scene, and someone walks into the scene and calls the Janitor by a ''different'' name...
*** WordOfGod states that The Janitor's name is indeed [[spoiler:Glenn Matthews.]]
