* ''BatenKaitos Origins'' plays this in a really [[WhamEpisode interesting and powerful manner]]: [[spoiler:''you're'' the tomato. Yes, you, the player...well, in a sense.]] That strange world that Sagi keeps getting sent to, where a bunch of people keep calling him Marno? [[spoiler:That's you. You're actually playing the role of Marno's spirit, not a nameless Guardian Spirit...oh, and by the way, Marno is one-fifth of the EldritchAbomination Malpercio. Yup, you're part of the dark god that helped ravage the world a millennium ago and is the final boss of the first, chronologically-second, ''BatenKaitos''. Don't you feel special?]]

* In the BittersweetEnding of ''Literature/{{Night}}'', Elie Wiesel (or an AuthorAvatar of him) is liberated from the Buchenwald concentration camp at the cost of losing his family. When he finally gets home, he looks at himself in a mirror and sees the full extent of what TheHolocaust had done to him. He describes himself as nothing more but a corpse.

* In ''Webcomic/TheSanityCirus'', not even Attley knows that she's one of the same Scarecrows that they have been trying to escape for the entire story. Posey, [[TheChessmaster of course]], knew it all along - but then she's a Scarecrow too.

* Subvered in ''VideoGame/GhostTrick''. Sissel spends the entire evening hunting down clues to who he was before his demise. [[spoiler:At first, he assumes himself to be the blond man in the red suit seen on the game's cover. He spends the majority of the game using this persona until he discovers that the man in red is alive (kind of) and reverts back to a wisp. He all but gives up hope on finding his identity until the person whose face he was borrowing eventually reveals that Sissel was his cat. Major clues for this revelation include Sissel's limited understanding of human technology and complete inability to read.]]

* Done excellently in the DragonLance short story "The Best." It is done in first person, with the narrator being a noble who's hired the four best dragonslayers in the land to kill a dragon who's been terrorizing the countryside. At the end of the story, they reach the dragon's lair, and it's revealed that [[spoiler:the narrator actually ''is'' the dragon in a magical disguise, and he's gathered them all together to take them all out at once, so he can sleep in peace]]. And it works.
