* At the end of ''John Doe: Vigilante'', the titular VillainProtagonist abruptly concludes his HowWeGotHere-style interrogation by [[spoiler:killing the HeroAntagonist detective who's been interviewing him through the whole film. It then turns out that said detective was actually the DirtyCop responsible for a ChekhovsGun crime shown in one of the flashbacks -- a surefire way to wind up on Doe's ''Series/Dexter''-esque hit list.]]

** ''The Family Of Five'' has the strange occurence of the youngest daughter always being with her family: her father, mother, brother and sister. Yet nobody ever thought it was a strange thing, not even that the whole family was going to school with her! Sick and tired of this, especially when a crush of hers confesses and realizing she'll never be left alone by them, she starts brandishing a knife... We suddenly cut to a home economics classroom, where a student accidentally cut her smallest finger off. The family of five was actually a 'family' of fingers on one hand.

* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' had [[spoiler: Subaru and Ginga being Combat Cyborgs]]. Everyone knew from the beginning with the exception of Erio, Caro, and possibly a few minor members of Riot Force Six (yes, even the antagonists knew).

* Comedian Emo Philips' "cellar door" joke, which usually goes something like this:
-->''When I was small, my mother warned me every day never to open the cellar door. She said that horrible, unspeakable things would happen to me if I ever opened the cellar door. I was frightened, but I still so desperately wanted to know what was behind the cellar door. So one day when my mother was away, I summoned up all my courage and opened the cellar door... and you'll never believe the things I saw! [[spoiler:Flowers! Trees! Other children!]]''

* Series/OnceUponATime: The second season premiere "Broken" appears to follow the same episode format as the first season, with the point of view switching between the Enchanted Forest in the past and a parallel story in Storybrook in the present. At the end of the episode, it is revealed that [[spoiler:the Enchanted Forest segments do not take place in the past.

* ''WebComic/SluggyFreelance'': [[ShowWithinAShow Torg's comic book]] "Gunman Stan [=McKurt=] Vs. the Gates of the City of the Damned" has a variation applying to a whole place. It starts with some archaeologists having DugTooDeep near a town and revealed "the gates of Hell itself". The protagonist is supposed to stop another character from opening them; in the end, she dies before being able to explain why opening these gates of the City of the Damned would actually help the people in the town. The reason is then revealed by a sign held by a demonic humanoid: "You are in the City of the Damned". Mind you, Stan [=McKurt=] never figures it out because he's illiterate.

* The famous "Raptor Story" on GameFAQs's Current Events forum. At the beginning of the story, the first-person narrator crashes his sister's lesbian spin the bottle party and is about to make out with her...until she is revealed to be a velociraptor, something that was somehow completely unknown to the narrator. The twist is actually in the first act of the story, not at the end.
