* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension.'' Through the revised [[VillainEpisode convention book]] for the Void Engineers, there's been continuous mention of a new enemy of the convention; known only as Threat Null, it's one of the main reasons why the Void Engineers have gone from starry-eyed space explorers to combat-hardened space marines. However, for reasons unknown, the existence of Threat Null have been kept secret from all the other conventions of the Technocratic Union. And then, halfway through the book, we find out why.
-->Threat Null doesn't call itself by that name. Threat Null calls itself [[spoiler: [[EvilKnockoff the Technocratic Union]].]]

** In the [[WhatCouldHaveBeen beta version]] both lines happen in the same sequence in Act 3. This lessens the impact of the "comfort" line but the first part is still a huge WhamLine.

** In the [[WhatCouldHaveBeen beta version]] both lines happen in the same sequence in Act 3. This lessens the impact of Shizune's route, the "comfort" sequence does not occur. According to the data the line but was ''meant'' to be included during the first part love confession scene itself, however in the leaked beta it is either unfinished or partially removed and thus wasn't implemented. The love confession itself is still a thing but happens much earlier (in Act 3) and is a huge WhamLine.WhamLine after Hisao confronts Misha about [[StepfordSmiler her unusually sad behavior]] lately.

This is strictly an audience trope. For a milder in-universe version, see DroppingTheBombshell. Often overlaps with ArmorPiercingQuestion or ArmorPiercingResponse, where the line causes a character to seriously rethink their position.
