* ''REAH: Face The Unknown'' ends with a disturbing explanation from the phantom alchemist who accompanied you throughout the whole game. [[spoiler: Instead of being a journalist who was brought to Reah by soldiers to investigate a portal, you are some kind of explorer being tested on Reah by the alchemist - who is actually the planet's AI that built everything you saw. And this wasn't the only time you've gone through; Everyone's seen you before, but you have no memory of this. And to make things worse, [[AndIMustScream he wants you to try it all again for as many times as he sees fit.]] There's no other ending or alternate path to completing the game. ]]

** In the second game, the player is led to believe that Mayu is being driven by the town's local AxCrazy ghost to kill twin sister, playable character Mio in order to complete an gruesome ritual that (among other things) requires an elder twin to kill his/her younger sibling. The game goes out of its way to show Mayu as a possessed, malevolent force. In the penultimate chapter of the game, it is revealed that the town has an odd legend about twin birth order -- instead of older/younger they have inferior/superior, respectively, and the superior twin always allows the inferior to be born first. Now Mio, and the player by proxy, is the murderer, something shown to be canon in the third game.
** In the fourth game, Private Investigator Choushiro Kirishima has spent the game chasing after the man responsible for everything with no memory of how he ended up on the ground in front of the hospital. In his final chapter, he manages to catch Haibara but is stabbed and [[TakingYouWithMe tackles the man]] over the railing of the hospital roof. Looking down at his own body, Kirishima realizes he's been a ghost this entire time, having died during the disaster 8 years prior.
* In VideoGame/SuperRobotWars: VideoGame/EndlessFrontier it's revealed that [[spoiler:Haken Browning]] is W00 a genetically engineered human made by a project which tried to create the perfect soldier. It causes some worries, but it's fairly short-term. He's in a group consisting of a smart-mouthed android with a split personality, a second android with cat-ears and like-wise split personality, a 2000+ year old UsefulNotes/{{pettanko}} oni princess, another princess who's as top-heavy as her sword and a chinese fox-spirit who cracks more sexually slanted jokes than you can shake a sword-cane at. And the other guy was in a group even crazier than this one.

* Tomato-In-The-Mirror reveals have become a staple of SilentHill games since SilentHill2, in which James realizes that he [[spoiler:killed his wife.]]
** Especially prevalent, and beautifully done, in Shattered Memories. The basic premise of the game centers on the main character Harry Mason searching for his lost daughter Cheryl after a car accident. The bulk of the game is a mix of exploration and action (in the form of running your ass off from the demented creatures chasing you,) with bouts of psychotherapy interposed between segments.[[spoiler:The obvious conclusion (considering Harry can't seem to die) is that in the narrative of the game follows Harry [[AnachronicOrder recounting]] his traumatic experiences to his therapist. However, in the course of the adventure through the town, you eventually find yourself at the office of a psychologist, and you go inside to discover the therapy sessions were happening ''concurrently'' with the gameplay. The patient turns out to actually be Harry's daughter, who is now somewhere in her 20s, and the Harry Mason the player has been playing is simply a delusion in Cheryl's mind. As the game eloquently puts it, you're 'not even a ghost'. And depending on your interpretation, it's ambiguous as to whether ''everything'' in the game was in Cheryl's mind or if her delusions were simply being physically manifested in the real town.]]
