** There are other things the movie does not reveal at the end, such as whether or not [[spoiler: Robert Fischer breaks up the company at the end. (In other words, did the "inception" work?)]]

See also UnrevealAngle, MissingTheGoodStuff and RiddleForTheAges. Regularly used to add fuel to a DrivingQuestion. Not to be confused with TheUntwist, unless you expected The [=Unreveal=] to be subverted.

Contrast EmergingFromTheShadows. NotToBeConfusedWith EverybodyKnewAlready, which is when a character ''thinks'' they're making a reveal, but the other characters already knew.

* Near the end of the second book in Literature/TheMillenniumTrilogy, Lisbeth Salander figures out a simpler proof for FermatsLastTheorem. In the third book, thanks to [[spoiler:being shot in the head]], she no longer remembers what it was.

** The manga-omake "The Real True Face…!!", released after the end of the series, is about another past attempt by Team 7 to unmask Kakashi. Once again, they completely fail. [[spoiler:However, the audience finally gets to see Kakashi unmasked once he's by himself, and the ramen store people's reactions from the previous one-off seem to have been pretty warranted]]]].

* Shy Guys, recurring enemies in the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' series, wear masks, and many games at one point mention what their identity would be. In ''VideoGame/MarioTennis'', if Shy Guy wins a match, he will step up to get the trophy, but trips and falls down, his mask falling off. He is facing the other way, but Luigi, being able to see his face perfectly, looks astonished. This again happens in ''Mario Strikers Charged'', except no one appears to have seen it. In ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'', Shy Guy-like ghosts appear as enemies. ''Their'' masks can be removed, and seen perfectly, [[spoiler: although it is merely black space with two glowing yellow eyes visible.]]

* In ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'', there's a running gag in which Trusty the bloodhound is about to mention some sage-like advice his grandfather Old Reliable used to give him, only to be told that he's already told it to the main characters some time before. At the very end when he's about to tell it to Lady and the Tramp's puppies, he realizes that he's completely forgotten what Old Reliable said to him now, so we the audience never learn what the advice was.

* In ''Film/TheGoodtheBadtheWeird'', we never find out what Do-won (the Good) wants to do with the treasure if there is proof that it exists. He almost explains it to temporary partner Tae-goo (the Weird) when they're bunking down for the night, but Tae-goo decides he isn't interested and has already fallen asleep before Do-won gets around to explaining his motives.

** In the final scenes of ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsX Kingdom Hearts X]] Back Cover'', [[spoiler:the Master of Masters entrusts Luxu with a mysterious black box engraved with the words "X Super", warning him that he must carry it with him and ''never'' open it. To assuage Luxu's curiosity, the Master of Masters reluctantly agrees to tell him what's in the box, but naturally the audience doesn't get to hear it; all we get is [[TakeOurWordForIt Luxu's shocked reaction]] and [[{{Troll}} the Master of Masters]] mischievously responding to Luxu's confused questions with "You'll see."

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'':
** Several plot points of the main quest fall into this. To note, ''something'' happened 4000 years ago which caused the [[RiddleForTheAges Dwemer to disappear]], [[PlotTriggeringDeath Nerevar to die]], and the [[PhysicalGod Tribunal]] (and [[BigBad Dagoth Ur]]) to [[DeityOfHumanOrigin achieve godhood]]. Speaking with those who know much about the situation, including [[spoiler:the last living Dwemer]], mortals who've spent their lives researching, and even a few of the deities involved leads to [[TheRashomon Rashomon]] style contradictory accounts from all of the parties. While there is enough evidence to form some decent theories, the game ends without revealing the truth.
** Is the PlayerCharacter ''really'' the reincarnation of Nerevar and TheChosenOne of prophecy? Or is he/she merely a convenient pawn of Azura? Or has the PlayerCharacter, by fulfilling the conditions in the prophecy, ''become'' the Nerevarine? Again, no definitive answer is ever given.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'':
''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** The Night Mother is a mysterious figure who leads the Dark Brotherhood, an illegal [[MurderInc assassins guild]] whose members typically take a [[PsychoForHire sadistic glee]] in killing and who practice a ReligionOfEvil, worshiping the "Dread Father" Sithis, the [[GodOfEvil primordial "Is-Not" antithesis of creation]]. Despite making four appearances in four different games in the series, as well as mentions in in-game books, we still aren't completely sure who or ''what'' she is. (There have been a few hints dropped, but so far, not enough to piece together anything close to a complete picture.)
