* The StarWars saga became this as of [[TheForceAwakens December 18th 2015]]....That big Ewok dance party/Pan-Galactic celebration montage and the triumphant defeat of TheEmpire in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' now feels like Tangina in ''Film/{{Poltergeist}}'' saying "The house is clean".[[note]]It may have taken 30 or so years but, still....[[/note]]

* Partly subverted in the original ''PrimeSuspect''. From the start the police have an obvious suspect and appear to be well on the way to solving the case. They even anticipate beating the force record. But if you thought "it can't be him", you're wrong. It was him, and at no point is there any suggesting that they had the wrong suspect. It just turned out to be a bit more difficult to prove it than they thought.

* Creator/ScottMcCloud's ''ComicBook/{{Zot}}'' featured a story dealing with a high school girl who is experiencing attraction to another girl. The second girl is known to her classmates to be a lesbian, and is tormented because of it. The first girl is trying to suppress her feelings. The story ends with the second girl passing the first in the hallway, and trying to be friendly. The first girl ignores her, looks very sad, and then the letters page appears, which traditionally is printed at the end of a comic. But after the letters page, the first girl calls back to the second girl in a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, and a later issue shows them to have started a happy relationship. (In the collected edition, the letters page was replaced with commentary by McCloud, so it still works.)

* In the UsefulNotes/{{N|intendoEntertainmentSystem}}ES ''Franchise/MonsterInMyPocket'' game, you defeat [[BigBad Warlock]] and then watch TV as peace has been restored. Then [[NotQuiteDead he shows up again]], providing the VictoryFakeout quote.

* In ''Flying Dragon: The Secret Scroll'', after winning the World Tournament and defeating Dargon, the leader of the Tusk Soldiers, you're told by your OldMaster Juan that the Dargon you just defeated was a fake. You then have to play through all of the stages (except for the fighting tutorial) all over again and look for four crystals hidden in statues in the platforming stages to complete the [[MacGuffin Mandara Talisman]] and defeat the real Dargon once and for all.

* In ''Literature/DoraWilkSeries'', large chunk of the final novel is devoted to dismantling the organization of a man who's said to be holding Varg prisoner for Bruno. When Dora finally raids his compound, it turns out Varg was never among the trapped shifters and the search has to start anew.

*** A much smaller example with the Nottagen plot, which pulls this ''twice''. First off it seems you've rescued the town... yet dispelling the gloom blocking out the sun caused a plant monster to wake up and destroy the town again. Then when you save the town from the plant, hellworms invade and destroy the town.

** Lampshaded in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon''. Technically, the first time you beat the Elite four, you ''are'' the champion... and Kukui comes in and mentions that even though the player is the champion, [[EnforcedTrope s/he technically has to fight one more person for it to count]], thus Professor Kukui becomes the TrueFinalBoss.

** Likewise for its sequel ''ChronoCross'', which has several points like this, particularly the first battle with Lynx.

* A minor version of this crops up early in the Hell Dimensions arc of ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld''. Basically, after spending an action mission trying to stop the demonic invasion of Earth from progressing beyond its beachhead, followed by an investigation mission spent trying to find out what happened to [[ChekhovMIA Theodore Wicker]], players finally get a Dungeon: they have to venture into Hell itself in a desperate attempt to end the invasion at its source and rescue Wicker - who is actually being used as a LivingBattery for the demonic army's portals. For good measure, you're led through the Dungeon by a female voice claiming to be a DamselInDistress allied with Wicker. After a long uphill slog, players finally reach Wicker and unplug him from the machine, with the expectation that the invasion will be over and their target can now go home to all the factions that have been trying to recruit him for the last few decades... only to discover that Wicker doesn't want to leave: now a DemonOfHumanOrigin, he wants to start a revolution among the demons and restore Hell to greatness - and guess who has to help him out over the next few dungeons before this arc's finished? As if to add insult to injury, the voice that's been leading you through Hell is revealed to be Saccharissa, a succubus in Wicker's service, who actually has the gall to taunt you by remarking "[[ShoutOut Your princess is in another castle!]]"
