* The end of ''Film/RogueOne'' has a HopeSpot as the Rebels escape with the Death Star plans. Then the lights cut out, and moments later, the VaderBreath starts up and [[MassOhCrap an ominous red light illumines the corridor.]] Cue MookHorrorShow.

* ''VideoGame/KirbyStarAllies'' has a truly spectacular double whammy during the battle with the final boss, [[spoiler:Void Termina]]. After defeating the first couple forms, Kirby and his friends [[spoiler:are pulled inside Void Termina's body once again to fight its true form. What is its true form, you may ask? It's an amorphous, hovering pink sphere with three dots forming a face...specifically, a face ''identical to Kirby''.]] This is only compounded as the battle goes on, as the battle goes on and [[spoiler:Void Termina takes ''another'' familiar face: that of '''Dark Matter''']].

** From ''VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon'', many players were shocked when they went up Mount Lanakila after beating the ClimaxBoss, only to run into Necrozma, said ClimaxBoss, looking awfully drained.

** In this game's EX mode, Meta Knightmare Returns, after the defeat of Haltmann 2.0, Star Dream awakens and tests Meta Knight with the clone of another sword master. While everyone expected Galacta Knight to show up again at this point, someone completely different shows up: [[VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand2 Dark Matter Blade]]. As there hasn't been a main series boss fight with this incarnation of Dark Matter since its debut and no Dark Matter fights at all since ''64'', the entire fandom was surprised to the point where, when Galacta Knight did show up two fights later, it was seen as something of a letdown, especially by older fans.

* At the very ending of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddysSisterLocation'', after defeating the night's hardest difficulty, you end up getting a cutscene in which an unfamiliar voice talks to their father about a plan they apparently followed. The voice also mentions that "they" mistook him for his father, and that he should be dead but isn't. He ends by saying that he's been living in shadows, and is coming to find his father. The whole time, the footage has been showing what appears to be a burned-out building. Then, in the very last half-second, a figure steps into frame: it's [[spoiler:''[[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3 Springtrap]]''. Whether he's the speaker or not is unknown, but regardless, it's still a WhamShot because it reveals that Springtrap ''survived'' Fazbear's Fright burning down]].
** The spinoff game ''Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator'' somehow manages to top even that. At first, the game seems like the sort of 8-bit troll game that [[TrollingCreator Scott Cawthon]] has become famous for, with simplistic gameplay and cheerful music. Then on level 4, the game begins to glitch badly, with the screen eventually going black...[[spoiler:only to fade back in on a realistically rendered shot of [[TheBusCameBack Baby]], now in a horribly damaged form, apparently deactivated and sitting across from the player at a desk. Ladies and gentlemen, ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys6'' has arrived.]]
