* 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, the speaker steps into frame to reveal their identity: [[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]].

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', Chrom is attacked by an assassin, but the mysterious woman identifying herself as [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Marth]] leaps in and blocks the blow. This isn't the Wham Shot, though. It comes just after she calls Chrom "father". She offers to reveal her identity to him, and we see the [[BirthmarkOfDestiny Brand of the Exalt]] in her left eye. The exact same location as Chrom's baby daughter, Lucina.

A WhamEpisode radically alters a StoryArc. A WhamLine is a line that radically alters a scene. A WhamShot is the purely visual version.

** The first season finale, "Fire Across the Galaxy", has two in very quick succession. First comes the reveal of Ahsoka Tano as the enigmatic Fulcrum (though this may be YMMV depending on how much credence you gave to fans who were able to ferret out the twist after Fulcrum's first vocal appearance). The second, and definitive WhamShot comes when Grand Moff Tarkin reveals the "alternatives" to the now-deceased Inquisitor. Cue Agent Kallus having a quiet OhCrap moment as a very familiar black helmet comes into view...
