** ''KingdomHearts3D'''s endgame is the biggest wham episode yet. Namely the cutscenes before and after Sora fights [[spoiler: Xemnas]], which basically topple the series' plot head over heel. [[spoiler: Not only do we find out that Nobodies could grow hearts all along, but their whole purpose was to be used as Xehanort's clones. Not only this but Xehanort allowed the Heartless into the Realm of Light (and by extension, created the Nobodies) in order to gather more possible vessels. And now ''Sora'' is their next target as a vessel. They also revealed that it was because of Sora's purity and innocence that made him to perfect candidate to be taken over]]. [[UpToEleven Just, damn]]...

* ''VideoGame/NoMansSky'': The Waking Titan AlternateRealityGame. [[spoiler: The entirety of the ''No Man's Sky'' universe is just a simulation run by an alternate present-day Earth. Priest-Entity Nada is ''absolutely right'' and its hinted the universe is trying to kill him for it.]]

** The second game has shit hit the fan ''big time'' when the party goes to the EGG to rescue Sera. To wit: [[spoiler:Heat impales [[TheHeroDies Serph]], who then drags both of them to their death (though Serph gets better); God starts rapidly absorbing the Earth into the Sun; and Margot Cuvier is shot and killed by Jenna Angel.]]

[[DwindlingParty The party is starting to dwindle,]] and believe it or not, [[FromBadToWorse it gets even worse]] in the following dungeon. [[spoiler:Jenna releases Meganada from the ice holding it, causing it to go on a rampage and kill most of the Lokapala, including Adil, Argilla and Roland, before it is blown up along with the entire power plant.]]

*** "Revelation": After discovering that Julius set him up to be killed (see the ''Saints Row 1'' example above), the Boss goes to confront him, only for them both to be ambushed by Ultor's Masako forces. After they make their escape, the Boss shoots Julius in the chest. Julius claims he tried to have the Boss killed two years ago because the Saints were becoming no better than the gangs they ran out. The bitter argument between the two ends with a bullet to Julius's head.

* The final level of ''VideoGame/BenAndEd'' hits the player with a massive one. Upon the two being reunited and they embrace, a prompt pops up; "Press E to celebrate". [[spoiler:Ed starts to eat Ben alive messily and horribly, all while Ben screams and gasps in mute shock and terror. The friendship between the two was one-sided, Ed is still just a zombie.]]

* Chapter 5 of ''VideoGame/FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]]''. See PlayerPunch for details.

to:

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'':
**
Chapter 5 of ''VideoGame/FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]]''. See PlayerPunch for details.details.
** The end of Chapter 27 of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade''. An Ice Dragon appears out of nowhere and Eliwood's newly-aquired InfinityPlusOneSword moves his body on its own to kill it, only for Nergal to show up and reveal this Ice Dragon was ''Ninian''.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' has a few:
*** Chapter 14 Eirika's Route: Joshua is the prince of Jehanna, and his mother dies.
*** Chapter 14 Ephriam's Route: Emperor Vigarde isn't merely NotHimself, he was DeadAllAlong, and the true mastermind of the war is Lyon.
*** Chapter 17, both routes: Lyon is possessed by the Demon King.
*** Chapter 18 Ephriam's Route (Moreso if the player has already completed Eirika's): Unlike on Eirika's route, where Lyon is wholly innocent and it's a bog-standard DemonicPossession plot, here Lyon reveals that he let the Demon King possess him ''willingly'', and ''fought off the possession'', meaning [[NotBrainwashed he was in control of his actions all along]] and is himself the BigBad, rather than the Demon King. [[WellIntentionedExtremist He plans to use the Demon King's power to help the world.]]
** The end of Chapter 19 of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemPathOfRadiance'', where Volke is revealed to have been hired by Ike's father all along, and reveals the real story of what happened to Ike's mother: Ike's father killed her when he accidentally touched Lehran's Medallion and went insane, afterwards he cut his own arm so he could never wield a sword again. Volke's true identity is an ''assassin'' hired by Ike's father to kill him if he ever went mad again.
** The end of Part 3 and the beginning of Part 4 of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemRadiantDawn'', where the goddess sealed inside the medallion is released, most of the world's population is turned to stone and TheReveal that the sealed goddess was actually GoodAllAlong and the real enemy is the goddess everyone ''thought'' was the good one. Cue plot shift from continent-spanning war to fighting a ''god''.



** Chapter 10 of the same game counts as even more of one, as the Plegians who saw [[spoiler:Emmeryn's sacrifice]] don't want to fight anymore, and even their general wants to try to solve this peacefully, knowing full well its far too late for that. Said General must fight anyways for his family, and his soldiers now only fight for him, and not their king. Couple that scenario with music like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-o8NHjkGO5o this]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWO4ff1HXYY this]] right at the start and you have Grade-A Wham Episode material.
** Chapter 13 almost seems to be trying to set some kind of record for most [[TheReveal Reveals]] dropped at once. [[spoiler: Plegia has a heirophant who looks identical to the Avatar and has the same name, and [[BigBad Validar]] reveals himself as the Avatar's father and that the Avatar was born to be a vessel for the Fell Dragon Grima. At the chapter's end, "Marth" reveals ''her''self to be Lucina, Chrom's KidFromTheFuture, who has travelled back in time from a BadFuture where Grima was revived and wiped out humanity, in order to change history. The sudden reveal of TimeTravel elements drastically changes the rest of the story and even gameplay.]]

*** Chapter 21: [[spoiler: The Avatar was the cause of the BadFuture, and Lucina plans to kill them to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong, but is talked out of it by Chrom.]]
*** Chapter 23: [[spoiler: Validar isn't as good a schemer as he thought, as it turns out Basilio faked his death earlier in the game and replaced one of the gemstones in the Fire Emblem with a fake, preventing him from resurrecting Grima. BUT at the end of the chapter the heirophant appears again and is revealed to be the Avatar from the BadFuture timeline possessed by Grima, and completes the ritual himself.]]
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'':
*** Both Routes, Chapter 5: Mikoto is killed using the sword Corrin brought to Hoshido, kickstarting the war and Corrin's big choice.
*** Conquest Chapter 15: Garon is DeadAllAlong and the Garon we know is a monster.
*** Revelation Chapter 7: The hidden kingdom of Valla is behind the whole war, and is ruled by the Silent Dragon Anankos.
*** Hidden Truths DLC: Anankos is a TragicVillain and Corrin's real father.

* VideoGame/Persona5:
** Okumura's Palace, especially the end. Things go the same way they normally do for a Treasure heist... [[spoiler: but as you leave, a masked figure shoots and destroys Okumura's Shadow. This causes the Okumura in reality to die horrifically on live television during his confession press-conference, and the Phantom Thieves being blamed for his death.]] You find out shortly after that [[spoiler: TheConspiracy helped orchestrate the Phantom Thieves' rise to fame so they could frame them for Okumura's murder.]]
** The events after the 6th Palace, as the flashbacks catch up to reality. At the end of the interrogation, the protagonist has a EurekaMoment [[spoiler: and remembers a few events that throw suspicion on Goro Akechi as TheMole]]. But then [[spoiler: Akechi enters the interrogation room and shoots the protagonist in the head, making it look like a suicide.]] We see all the other thieves reacting to the sad nws... but ''then'' [[spoiler: it's revealed that ''they knew all along that Akechi was the traitor'' and the entire 6th heist was secretly a plan to trick him into revealing himself ''and'' fake the protagonist's death. Cue the protagonist, still very much alive, giving a CatSmile from the interrogation room.]] During these events the traitor also [[spoiler: reveals his boss' name.]]
** At the end of the final dungeon [[spoiler: we get TheReveal that the true BigBad of the story is ''Igor'', or rather than the Igor you know is actually a fake who imprisoned and replaced the real one. He's also a sentient Treasure, the Treasure of ''all Tokyo'' to be exact, and he proceeds to merge Mementos with reality, causing the Phantom Thieves to be erased from existence. (Until the protagonist rallies their resolve, that is)]]

** Chapter 3 of ''VideoGame/DaiGyakutenSaiban'': Ryunosuke's first trial in Great Britain doesn't seem to different from the series' usual fare at first. [[spoiler: Until the end, where it's heavily implied your client was really guilty after all and played you, the prosecutor and the entire court for fools. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero And YOU just discredited all the witnesses to his crime]], so the judge has no choice but to declare a Not Guilty verdict. Your client [[KarmaHoudini gets away with it all]]... for all of 10 minutes, at which point he's told they'll be investigating the carriage the murder took place in again... and is promptly locked inside it while the carriage is set ablaze, burning him to death.]] This sets up the events of the 5th case, where you learn [[spoiler: yes, he really was Episode 3's murderer, and several of the witnesses from that trial had been bribed and/or threatened by him to hide evidence and give false testimony.]]
