* Eric Kripke, the creator of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', released spoilers that Sam would have a new waitress LoveInterest named Kristy in Season 4. He was ''kinda'' telling the truth (Sam had sex with a "Kristy" in the fourth season premiere, but [[spoiler:she is [[TheNthDoctor actually]] the demon [[TokenEvilTeammate Ruby]] lying about her identity to cover up their [[DatingCatwoman involve]][[EvilMentor ment]] from Dean and Bobby]]), but he admitted that he was just saying it to rile up [[YaoiFangirl the]] [[DieForOurShip fans]]. It worked.
** There's another for ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', in [[Recap/SupernaturalS07E14PluckyPennywhistlesMagicMenagerie s07e14 'Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie']] there's a timestamp that reads "Right friggin' now!".

** With Kokonoe now playable, in spite of the problems above, it seems that the fandom accusation to Mori is that he's doing the same ever since the earlier days, except this time to her father Jubei. Indeed, this badass cat has yet to see the light of playable even as Mori also ''teased'' on how he might be playable in the future through several Omake segments. Up until now after the announcement of ''Central Fiction''... there hasn't been signs of him being playable, or being in such condition as well. [[spoiler:His last appearance was being gravely wounded by Nine.]] ''Central Fiction'' was nearing its console release, and the newcomers include his wife Nine, the new BigBad Hades Izanami, former NPC Hibiki Kohaku, main protagonist of the Japan-only graphic novel Naoto Kurogane and the heroine of ''VisualNovel/XBlazeCodeEmbryo'' Es. Yep, no Jubei in sight. And what's worse, Mai Natsume, whose first manga of origin got localized but the sequel of which she gets her outfit from hadn't yet, gets into the console version, and ''still no Jubei''.

Jubei would eventually be announced as a DLC character for ''Central Fiction.

* In ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'', there is a starting item you can choose at the very beginning called "the Pendant". It has no obvious use, but many players assumed there had to be some significance behind it, because [[LawOfConservationOfDetail why would it be in the game otherwise?]] It helps that ''Dark Souls'' is a game in which even the tiniest of details can be extremely important for understanding the story or the gameplay, making fans even more on the lookout for such things. The game's director, Hidetaka Miyazaki, would repeatedly hint that there was some great secret behind this item, but no matter how hard the fans looked, they couldn't find anything. After ''years'' of this, Miyazaki finally revealed what the Pendant does: absolutely nothing. It was a RedHerring from the start.

And just to rub it in, the key item for accessing the game's DLC is a Pendant... a ''different'' Pendant with no relation to the first.

** Lee would also apparently troll Ditko. Ditko would draw Spider-Man swinging over some anti-Vietnam protesters, shaking his fist and an empty word balloon nearby for Lee to fill in. Lee would have Spider-Man voice support or solidarity for the protesters, which irked the conservative Ditko.

** That's not even getting into the tweet itself. To the user [[SelfDemonstrating/CapsLock loudly]] proclaiming that Lucky Chloe should be removed from Tekken 7, he only had this to say:

* In Bioware's Neverwinter Nights, there existed a popular player made server called Path of Ascension. In it the server's creators added a script that would trigger whenever a magic based character cast the spell Time Stop in the hub town. After an instance of Time Stop was cast anyone attempting to rest in town would immediately die. High level players would often invoke this script on purpose to troll other players on the server. Lowbie player responses would always be "WTF why am I dead?" with more knowledgeable players retorting with "Lol TS." On the upside, the script would reset resting back to normal after another Time Stop spell was cast.
