* ''TenchiInTokyo'': Sakuya isn't the OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent she thought she was. She is Yugi's sort-of clone, or more exactly, her "shadow". A mere extension of Yugi's own self.

* A white supremacist who wanted to create a town just for white supremacists and Neo-Nazis was shocked late in 2013 when a DNA test revealed he was 14% Sub-Saharan African. To be expected if you know about genetics and biology, but it was contrary to the ardent white supremacist's expectations.

* ''FireEmblemAwakening'' has [[SarcasmMode lovingly]] prepared a double-whammy special tomato puree surprise for you. [[spoiler:You, as the Avatar, are [[OmnicidalManiac Val]][[TheDragon idar]]'s child. Yes, the spawn of the madman who heads a ReligionOfEvil dedicated to the resident GodOfEvil, the Fell Dragon Grima; the same man who attempted to have your friends assassinated in cold blood in the middle of the night and the one who eventually forces you through magical thrall to attempt to murder your best friend (And quite possibly your husband, if your Avatar is female). That's the ''[[FromBadToWorse least]]'' of your worries. You are also the ''MagnumOpus'' of said ReligionOfEvil; have you ever wondered why your Avatar and your children are so stupidly strong? It's because you are the most perfect result of a SuperBreedingProgram designed to create [[SoulJar a suitable vessel]] for said GodOfEvil, only your birth was so perfect that rather than create a person that hopefully would be good enough to hold the God, ''[[AntiChrist the god chose you to be his reincarnation]].'' [[ApocalypseMaiden You]] '''are''' the GodOfEvil. And TimeTravel is involved in this game. And guess what? Nothing quite feels like a kick in the nuts like hearing the impending realization of your dark destiny coming from the mouth of ''yourself'' from a BadFuture where you ''willingly'' murdered your best friend/possible husband, [[AGodAmI ascended to godhood]] and proceeded to lay waste to the world, bringing unmeasureable death and destruction to all that lives and being basically single-handedly responsible for every single tragedy that's befallen the time-travelling children of your TrueCompanions. '''YIKES.''' Fortunately for everyone not from the Grimleal, you can and WILL ScrewDestiny to prevent the present from turning into that ruined future.]]

* The plot of the ''ComicBook/SpiderMan [[ComicBook/TheCloneSaga Clone Saga]]'' was going to originally resolve itself in this way, with the "clone" Ben Parker finding out that he was the original and the "original" Peter Parker, whom comic book fans had been reading about since the original clone story in the '70s, would be revealed to actually have been the clone all along. [[AuthorsSavingThrow And then Marvel Comics chickened out...]] (After the infamously ''long'' Clone Saga went back and forth at least a half-dozen times about which Spidey was the clone.)

* DoubleSubverted in ''Anime/{{Gravion}}'': Leele discovers that she's apparently one of the Zeravire that's been attacking the Earth. In the episode afterwards, it's {{Hand Wave}}ed that her memories were mixed up from contact with one of the Zeravire. But as it turns out, she ''is'' a Zeravire. Sort of. She is in fact the niece of the alien scientist who created them, and shares the ''surname'' Zeravire.
