* 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...

* Diglett and Dugtrio are specifically programmed within the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' games to have animations that avoid or get around situations where they would have to appear above ground, thus revealing what they look like underneath the ground. Things like going either underground instead of jumping or simply refusing to jump within the [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Pokéathlon]], running between bushes within the [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Poké Transfer]] capture minigame instead of jumping between them like the other Pokémon, be the only Pokémon to fade into the battlefield instead of dropping onto the ground within the Generation V games, etc. Even within the 3D games (including the sixth generation), this trope applies -- if they somehow managed to either perform moves that involves them souring into the air or get hit by moves that lift them up into the air, only the visible part of their body goes into the air. That, and also the rubble by their neck (or whatever part of their body that's supposed to be), as if said rubble's part of their body.

When [[BigBad Amon]] used his bloodbending technique to take away her bending, he opened up new pathways in her brain, allowing her to access Airbending. At the end of the episode, after Katara tells her she doesn't know how to fix what Amon did, she's sitting on a cliff in despair, with the implication that she's contemplating suicide. That's when Spirit!Aang appears and tells her that, now that she's reached her true lowest point, she's opened herself up to receive help from outside the physical, restoring her bending abilities and giving her the knowledge of how to restore others.[[/note]]
** WordOfGod: [[spoiler: Amon couldn't sever her connection to Airbending]] because it wasn't fully established yet, and she could suddenly use it because she was [[spoiler: selflessly defending Mako, as opposed to her usual motivation, which is at least partly driven by her own gratification.]] No word on the last one, though.

We never really find out why Korra couldn't Airbend [[spoiler: or why she suddenly could when Amon robbed her of her other bending gifts]], contact the Spirit World intentionally or use the Avatar State (even in full freak-out/self-defense mode). The last minutes of the final episode of Season 1 subtly implies an answer, but leaves the actual question unanswered.[[note]]The implication, which has become accepted {{fanon}}: Korra could not mentally wrap her head around the spiritual aspects of being an Airbender or The Avatar and over-relied on her other, more physical bending abilities. When [[BigBad Amon]] used his bloodbending technique to take away her bending, he opened up new pathways in her brain, allowing her to access Airbending.

** A man is lost and hungry and comes upon a monastery. The monks agree to let him stay there for the night as long as he doesn't go into the tower. That night, he's woken by a horrible sound coming from the tower and asks about it the following morning. The head monk says that what's in the tower is a secret among the monks. A year later, the man returns to the monastery and asks to join them. After a long, difficult series of tasks, he finally is accepted into the order. As part of his acceptance, he's shown what is in the tower. However, the person being told the story can't be told what it is because he's not a monk.
** A young boy decides to make his own lunch for school and makes a meal of little purple grapes. Whenever someone asks what he has, he tells them "little purple grapes" and gets some severe backlash for it. By the end of the story, he's been beaten up, expelled, disowned, and finally arrested. He relates his story to his cellmate who promises to tell him why the phrase "little purple grapes" has caused him so much misfortune if he sneaks out and steals him some cigarettes. The boy does so but gets hit by a car and killed before he returns.
