Added DiffLines:

* The ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series has several:
** From the first game in the middle of a funny conversation between Maya and a parrot, owned by a crazy old man, we get this bombshell:
---> '''Maya:''' Polly! Polly! Have we forgotten something?
---> '''Polly:''' *Squawk* "Don't forget [[spoiler:DL-6]]!" *squawk*
** From the fifth case, Rise From The Ashes. An in universe example as it caused such an uproar that the trial had to be suspended for a day.
---> '''Lana:''' Drastic crimes require drastic measures...That's just the way it is. We did what we had to...in order for him to get the verdict he deserved. [[spoiler:Even if it involved "forging" evidence.]]
** A minor example in the second case, which serves as the first indication we get that [[spoiler: Phoenix and Edgeworth knew each other before that trial.]]
--->'''Phoenix:''' Edgeworth... [[spoiler: you've changed.]]
** From ''Justice for All'', the final quote of case 3:
---> '''Gumshoe:''' I'll be waiting for you! Goodbye, [[spoiler: Mr. Edgeworth]].
** From ''Trials & Tribulations'':
---> '''Sister Bikini''': So i guess you already know that Iris [[spoiler: is Morgan Fey's daughter]]
--->'''Phoenix''': IRIS IS [[BigWhat WHAT?!?!?!]]
** Iris finally revealing how she knows Phoenix, at the end of case 3-5. The line not only puts a significant chunk of her previous actions into context, but acts as the capstone of her character arc: [[spoiler:she's finally found the courage to stop lying to him]].
-->'''Iris:''' I hope one day you can forgive me...[[spoiler:Feenie]].
** In the last case of ''Apollo Justice''
--->'''Brushel''': "[[spoiler:Thalassa Has Another Child Besides Trucy]]", end quote.
** From ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigations'', we have a [[spoiler: wham ''laugh'', when Shih-Nah laughs in the exact same highly-distinctive manner as Calisto Yew, sparking instant recognition from Edgeworth, Franziska and Kay.]]
** From ''Investigations 2'':
--->'''Courtney''': The defendant...[[spoiler:Blaise Debeste]]! I accuse you!
** In ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies Dual Destinies]]'':
--->'''Blackquill''': "Upon thorough analysis, the fingerprints were found to belong to [[spoiler:Athena Cykes]]." So says the report.
** Later in that game:
--->'''Edgeworth''': The man you see there before you... [[spoiler:Bobby Fulbright............ [[DeadAllAlong is already long dead]]]].
** And before that, in the same game, when this line is repeated once you know [[spoiler: that whoever used the escape ladder is a double murderer and international spy.]]
--->'''Aura Blackquill''': So I lowered my emergency ladder like the detective leading the investigation told me to.
** In ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice'':
--->'''Apollo''': I... [[spoiler: [[IChooseToStay will stay in Khura'in.]]]]

* ''TabletopGame/DemonTheFallen.'' The book ''Time of Judgement'' describes various versions of TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt for the various games in the TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness that are not the main three games (TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade, TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse and TabletopGame/MageTheAscension). The book's prologue and epilogue are both told from the point of view of Lucifer Morningstar, the instigator of the events of The Fall. In the epilogue he talks about someone suggesting that God reacted to Lucifer's rebellion not out of wrath, but out of compassion: an intervention instead of a punishment... and then Lucifer drops toe following bomb, upsetting everything we thought to know about the rebellion, Lucifer himself and even God:
-->'''Lucifer:''' In the end, I killed John. Just like I killed Woodrow. Was God wrong? I never told John - and certainly never Malakh - [[spoiler: that I asked the angels to rebel because the Most High ordered me to do it. What would they make of that?]]

* ''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.
