* Played with an in episode of ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', where Sheldon finds and reads the contents of an envelope that Howard got from his long-estranged father on his 18th birthday. Howard destroys the envelope and demands that Sheldon never tell anyone, himself included, its contents, but later is clearly wracked over not knowing what it said. Eventually, the rest of the characters work out a compromise whereby they'll each tell Howard a different version of what was inside the envelope, but not which of them is telling the truth. Which version was true is never stated, but it's definitely not what Sheldon claims it to be (a pirate treasure map), and probably not what Raj says it is (a birthday card with a fairly bland message, with Raj spending more time talking about the card itself than the message).

* ''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? Again, no definitive answer is ever given.

* In ''[[{{Nightside}} Just Another Judgement Day]]'', John Taylor and a companion barely manage to outmaneuver a homicidal tyranosaur, in order to reach a secret door inside its cage. After meeting the occupant, they're booted out into the cage, where the tyranosaur awaits. Confronting this peril, John (the narrator) simply comments "Luckily, I thought of something", after which the author cuts to the next chapter, leaving their method of escape unstated.

May come in a combo with a CliffHanger, for greater effect. The reveal is set up to finally take place, and the episode ends: come back tomorrow to see what happens now! And, when the episode starts the next day, there is no reveal after all.

* ''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 Eyed 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]].

* In MarvelComics' ''ComicBook/DarkReign Files'', Quasimodo is tasked with profiling and assessing various personalities who may be of use to ComicBook/NormanOsborn as the head of HAMMER. On the first page we see emails from Quasimodo to Osborn that detail his efforts to this end, blah blah; One of them concerns the identity of Facade, a minor Spider-Man villain whose identity was made into a huge mystery but never revealed. But the lower half of the paper is torn off and it ends with "Facade is-"
