** VideoGame/PokemonSunandMoon has a {{Wham Episode}} in the form of the second visit to the Aether Foundation. The first visit had a Wham Moment where the first Ultra Beast to show up, Nihilego, shows up, but doesn't compare to the second visit. In the second visit, you find out about Lusamine's true colors as an abusive parent to Lillie ''and'' Gladion, Team Skull, the built-up enemies to Aether Foundation, are in their plan too, and the illegal experimentation that is committed in Aether Foundation. Lusamine also manages to almost ''kill'' Nebby, Lillie's Cosmog, in a successful attempt to open the Ultra Wormhole, where the Ultra Beasts come from. At this moment, it opens, releasing Ultra Beasts on every island, leading up to the post-game quest of catching them.

* Of all the games to have one, ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' ''does'' in the quest, ''Where Angels Fear to Tread.'' [[spoiler:To sum up the mission: Angel reveals herself to be a human Siren, not an AI as previously claimed. '''Jack''' is [[AbusiveParents her father]] and is using her to charge the vault key. She asks you to [[MercyKill kill her]] to A. stop Jack and B. free her from her personal hell. Roland and Lilith help out, despite Angel's warning that Lilith should stay away. After you kill Angel, Jack shoots Roland then kidnaps Lilith, using her now to charge the vault key.]]
** Oh, and while there had been a bit of foreshadowing for it, when [[spoiler: it turns out Angel is actually under Handsome Jack's control and tricks you into destroying Sanctuary's shield,]] that's the first true wham of the game.

** Even for those who haven't, one awaits those for those who decide to reject the Law and Chaos endings. With the Divine Powers out of the picture, and Merkabah and Lucifer destroyed, it seems there is but one thing left to do immediately afterwards: a party at the Kasumigaseki Hunter headquarters, with Flynn delivering a RousingSpeech. But it turns out Flynn -- as in the Flynn who was apparently rescued from Tsukiji Konganji -- is actually Shesha disguised as Flynn, with Flynn still being held captive by the Divine Powers. Shesha consumes the souls of nearly everyone at the party, ''bloodily devours Asahi'', then makes his leave, transforming into the Cosmic Egg that Krishna promised would come to Tokyo on the full moon.

* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'' has a hell of a Wham Episode for those who completed ''IV''[='=]s Neutral Ending: You, a 15-year-old Tokyo native, are sent on a quest that presumably will help out Flynn, whose assault on the forces of Law and Chaos have brought hope to the dwellers of Tokyo, and his partner Isabeau. You come across an ominous black sphere known as the "Ark", defeat the god protecting it, and activate the Ark. As it turns out, this un[[SealedEvilInACan seals]] the Divine Powers, led by Krishna, who then make for Ginza [[HopeSpot just as Flynn is about to wake up Masakado]] and strike him down, kidnapping him and leaving with him inside Sheshna, a massive magma dragon who punches a hole in the Tokyo bedrock before leaving. With the savior from Mikado gone, the humans of Tokyo fall into a complete loss for what to do next.

** The TrueEnding. [[spoiler: Snake talks more about the Nonary Game he survived 9 years ago which killed Santa's sister and Seven remembers his memory as a cop who saved the first players, only to reveal to Junpei that the only person to die was [[LoveInterests Akane Kurashiki]] who's DeadAllAlong. Junpei fully exposes what Ace had done on the ship and reveals that [[BigBad Zero]] - actually Santa, AKA Aoi Kurashiki - had tricked Ace into killing the other organizers. Santa confirms this... [[NotMeThisTime except]] Santa is ''not'' Zero, and that the current Game isn't about revenge but saving Akane who's the game's ''true'' [[TheProtagonist hero]] of the game, who's trapped in a TimeParadox which only [[TheChosenOne Junpei]], who she's linked to, can help her with and has been giving him information ''[[YouShouldntKnowThisAlready from the]] {{Bad Endings}}.]]'' [[MindScrew Yeah]]... There's a reason the sequel is a MindScrewdriver.
