** ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'': During the third visit to Hollow Bastion, Goofy apparently dies when a large rock hits him on the head. [[SubvertedTrope He was only knocked out, and shows up perfectly fine after a few minutes]].
** ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2'': The final two days of the game are a doozy. [[spoiler: On Day 357, Roxas finally gets the full story about Xion, only to be forced to kill her in self-defense ([[SuicideByCop which Xion wanted]], as it would let him take her memories back to Sora). And 358... well, that was when ''Deep Dive'' happened.]]
** "Reconnect. Kingdom Hearts" [[SequelHook Secret Ending]]. After watching it for the first time, and with the general knowledge of what happened in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', as well as the rest of the series, you'd understand the feeling of watching [[TheHero the kid who was looking for his friends]] become [[MessianicArchetype someone who has to save]] ''any'' good person who has received a FateWorseThanDeath.



** ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'': Twilight Town in Sora's storyline is basically a long string of foreshadowing for [[spoiler: the existence of Roxas]] and the point we start to realize Marluxia's plan.



** ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'': During the third visit to Hollow Bastion, we learn Ansem from the first game was an imposter. That imposter is the Heartless of the real Ansem's apprentice, Xehanort, and the leader of [[BigBadEnsemble Organisation XIII]] is his Nobody

** ''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 the Organization XIII had hearts all along, but their whole purpose was to be used as Xehanort's clones. Not only this but Xehanort created the Heartless (and by extension 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]]...

[[UpToEleven Just, damn]]...damn]]...
** The secret ending of ''Dream Drop Distance'' deserves mention as well. [[spoiler: Kairi has been recruited to help stop Xehanort.]]

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' does this at what should be the moment of triumph. Martin Septim relights the Dragonfires and banishes Mehrunes Dagon back to [[PhysicalHell his plane of Oblivion]]. Then there's the realization that Martin's HeroicSacrifice ended the Septim Dynasty...meaning there is no left who can keep the Dragonfires lit, and a war of succession is almost certain.
** In the Fighters Guild questline, one occurs when you infiltrate the Darkwood Company as a new recruit. You learn that it uses the sap from the Hist, a sentient race of trees revered by the Argonians. You're then sent on a job to kill a pack of goblins that have invaded a village. You drink the sap, it gives you super fighting abilities, and you murder all the goblins, even though the ones in the house don't attack you. After you're done, you wake up in the middle of town, go back, and return to the village. You go inside, and found that all the peaceful "goblins" inside the house that you killed were actually an ''innocent family'' that you murdered while under the effects of the sap.

** These events actually devastated the Dark Brotherhood, and, after 200 years, there is only one functioning sanctuary left (out of at least five), and they only survived because they let go of the old ways, causing a lot of friction when someone comes in and tries to bring the old ways back.

** During the main questline, after your first fight with Alduin, you learn that he hasn't been defeated, he has simply retreated to Sovngarde, the WarriorHeaven of the Nords, to recover his strength... by devouring the souls of the honored dead.
*** After the Season Unending quest, where you have to broker a peace deal between the Empire and the Stormcloaks until Alduin is dealt with, the leader of one of the two factions related to dragons in the game drops a bombshell in your lap by revealing that they know about the leader of the other faction, a dragon who at this point in the game is your single greatest ally against Alduin, and cutting you off from all support from her faction until you kill him, which will permanently cut you off from all support from the other faction if you do this. And no, you can't persuade or intimidate her into seeing things your way, something many fans are less than happy with.



** During the College of Winterhold questline, a Thalmor agent takes control of the Eye of Magus, and kills the Archmage effortlessly.

* An early example of this: In the normal ending of ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaIISimonsQuest'', Simon dies from his wounds. The "special" ending (take more than 8 days to finish) isn't much better; Dracula is dead, but so is Simon, and in fact the entire series.

** The bad ending to ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaDawnOfSorrow''. [[spoiler:Soma becomes Dracula after Celia kills a doppleganger of Mina. Getting this ending first will still unlock Julius Mode, where you use him, Yoko and Arikado (aka Alucard) to kill Soma.]] The good ending? [[spoiler:Turns out you didn't absorb Dmitri's soul after fighting him, he put his soul into you so he can learn Soma's power of Dominance. After Celia failed to turn Soma into Dracula, Dmitri takes over the doppleganger's body and leaves with Celia to the Abyss. There, Dmitri kills Celia and, because he couldn't handle Dominance, turns into a giant abomination.]]
** ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaOrderOfEcclesia'' hits the player over the head with quite a doozy. If they rescue all of the villagers, then [[spoiler:after the fight with Albus, you find out his soul got absorbed into Dominus because he's been trying to figure out how to use Dominus for Shanoa because using the Dominus Glyph Union would kill it's user. He also apologizes for not being the one to do the ritual to take in the Dominus Glyphs because Barlowe sent him on a pointless errand. When you confront Barlowe about all this, Shanoa will refuse to use Dominus to kill Dracula. Barlowe gets upset because he's so close to ''releasing'' Dracula, which was what Dominus was ''supposed'' to do. Then after defending yourself from Barlowe, he ''sacrifices himself'' to release Dracula. Cue the summoning of Casltevania and the final act of the game.]]

* ''VideoGame/DandyDungeon'' has the reveal that Maria-chan, the sweet, innocent schoolgirl that becomes Yamada's LoveInterest, is the daughter of the BigBad Hidemaru Ayanokiji. A much bigger one happens at the end of the game, where it is revealed that [[spoiler: the Men in Black was actually Yasu, Yamada's friend, who re-coded and manipulated Yamada's game to take revenge by proxy on his father... Hidemaru Ayanokiji.]]
