-->'''Ricky:''' Is one of them short and hairy, totally covered from top to bottom in a space suit, so they didn't know it was a monkey?
-->'''Steve:''' It's not one of the customers? One of the waiters?

* One of Creator/IsaacAsimov's short stories, "The Segregationist", consists largely of a doctor acting disgusted at how a patient wants robotic organs and ranting about how humans and robots should stick to their own kind. It's not revealed until the very end that the doctor is a robot.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/GuildedAge'': The beginning of chapter 9 let us know that none of the adventures are "real" but its an extremely advanced experiment in virtual simulation for the online Game [[BlandNameProduct "Kingdoms of Arkerra"]] and the adventure group to be volunteers that are incapable of turning it off. HR's comments pose a philosophical question of "what is real?" when he implies Arkerra is indeed a real place, one that he 'found' through the game. He likened it to a sculptor, revealing a statue that was always in the block of marble.

** It's something of an ItWasHisSled now, but the casual (but sudden) reference in ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' to Zaphod having two heads was originally intended to work this way. Trillian was the same idea in reverse; she initially seems to be another alien with her "space name", until it turns out it's a nickname for Tricia [=McMillian=]

**"The Wormery": An old woman tells of her encounter with the Sixth Doctor, to someone she calls 'Mr. Ashcroft', who remains silent until the very end, when she asks him to look after the recordings she made of the incident in question, and he tells her he will.[[spoiler: That's when we find out he hasn't spoken before because he's the Seventh Doctor, probably the only one of the bunch capable of both such subterfuge and such prolonged silence.]]

** The second-season episode "The Invaders" uses a Tomato Surprise to put a trademark TwistEnding on the story. In a script containing practically no dialogue, Agnes Moorehead plays an old crone in an isolated cabin beset by spacemen less than a foot tall. Alas, it wasn't EarthAllAlong.

Toward the end readers learn [[spoiler:why everybody never refers to it by number, but occasionally call it "The Great War".

* The ''WebComic/SeventySeas'' side story, [[http://70-seas.com/?p=3146 Lost and Found]], when a man in a stolen Toby Terrier convinces the Toby Town security guards that have surrounded him that he was a lost child who grew up in the park's lost and found, only to reveal that it was actually the park guards who had been raised in the lost and found and suppressed their memories of it.
* During a previous storyline of ''Webcomic/AxeCop'', Sockarang completes a mad rampage where he assaults and kidnaps his supposed allies. Once they're all safely under lock and key, he removes his mask...to reveal that he's actually Dr. Stinky Head, who had disguised himself as Sockarang to trick Axe Cop and his friends. Just then, Dr. Stinky Head shows up and divests himself of his own mask, to reveal that he's actually Sockarang, who had the exact same idea as Dr. Stinky Head.
* ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily'' pulled this off when they did the Cocoon Academy arc, about [[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} Dedede and "Pinky"'s]] days in school. Pinky is a very familiar looking pink puffball with good sucking abilities. [[spoiler:It turns out that he's actually Meta Knight, who got corrupted into a blue color while defending the academy, whereas soon after he got his mask. Kirby was likely not even born at the time of the arc.]]In addition, [[spoiler:"Headmaster Hand" is actually Crazy Hand, only he isn't.]]
* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', Jane and Jake live in Maple Valley, Washington and a small island in the Pacific respectively, just like John and Jade. Roxy and Dirk live in Rainbow Falls, New York and Houston, Texas. However, what was kept hidden from readers was that [[spoiler:Dirk and Roxy live in the future where the Troll Empress has taken charge of Earth and flooded it. Roxy's house is part of a chessboard-esque hub and Dirk's apartment is the only thing remaining above water.]]
