* In ''[[Fanfic/TheDarkLordsOfNerima The Dark Lords Ascendant]]'', a third story in a trilogy of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' and ''Anime/SailorMoon'' fics known as the ''Dark Lord saga'', Ranma arrives to Juuban to dissuade the Sailor Senshi from thinking that he and the Wrecking Crew are [[MultiversalConqueror pan-dimensional conquerors]] (long story, read the first fic to understand where this is going). Of course, this ''is'' Ranma we're talking about [[CosmicPlaything and the universe seems to hate him for no damn reason]], so it goes as well as you think. By this we mean explosions, misunderstandings, and chaos galore. And after the dust settles, Sailor Moon utters these words which shoots down everything Ranma tried to prevent. She's not listing to another word from him, and another fight with the Senshi was now inevitable:
--> "Are you still going to try and tell us that you aren't mind-controlling these girls into your being your servants, Ranma?"
** And another Wham Line, this time spoken by Ranma after discovering what the [[OutsideContextVillain Outside-Context Villain's]] of the story is really after.
--> "A guy like you? He wouldn't just want a way to ''[[BroughtDownToNormal stop]]'' Sailor Moon from using her power. He'd want a way to ''[[PowerParasite steal]]'' it."

* [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/215354/1/The-Fragility-of-Time The Fragility of Time]] has one in Chapter 34, where Rubeus finally crosses the MoralEventHorizon by murdering Mimete for inadvertently destroying the daimon machine.
-->"What you mean, failure? I know it wasn't a complete success, but I…" Mimete began in her defense. However, she did not get a chance to finish. Instead, her eyes went wide as [[CruelAndUnusualDeath black spheres of deadly energy shot through her stomach]].
** Before that we get the introduction of Sailor Galaxia to the story proper and her EstablishingCharacterMoment:
-->Laughing, Galaxia regarded her opponent. "Oh, I am sure you don't want to join me. Rarely does your kind want to, but they have no choice. You see before this day is over you will be executing the rest the council here and then I think I'll have you kill your own child. After all, I am sure that he is still alive here somewhere and who better to be able to find him than his own mother." Galaxia replied with a wicked smile.

* ''Fanfic/LightAndDarkTheAdventuresOfDarkYagami'': Chapter 6:
-->'''Blud''': "THAT'S WHERE [[RougeAnglesOfSatin YOUR]] WRONG MY SHINY HAIRED APPRENTICE. YOU SEE I ONLY PRETENDED TO BE YOUR SHINIGAMI BUT IN FACT I WAS [[FakeDefector L'S ALL ALONG]]. I GAVE HIM A LIFE NOTE AND ALL I HAVE TO DO IS WRITE L'S NAME IN IT AND HE WILL COME BACK TO LIFE AS GOOD AS NEW AND YOUR PLANS WILL HAVE BIN FOILLED!"

* ''Fanfic/WhenThereWasATomorrow'': We're given the line "For now simply know that your prior feelings when we first met were understandable and I do not think poorly of you for them." Now, what makes this apparent CharacterDevelopment laden line so surprising? ''[[MindHive Legion]]'' is the one saying it! What makes it even [[BuffySpeak Whammier]] is that when Tali points out this change in behavior Legion insists it's not calling itself "I" and seems genuinely unaware that it's doing so. The exact significance of this line has yet to be seen, however.
* ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'' has two:
** “The biggest thing is that there really isn't a curse on Ketafa.”

-->"Neither of us killed it... you did."
* The ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'':

** From "Beating Up Discord" Dark World!Discord implying there's far more to what's going on than the heroes believed.

** From "Give A Reason", [[TrueFinalBoss Nightmare Paradox]] revealing just how long the GroundhogDayLoop has been happening.

--->'''Twilight''': -and wondered why our coat was turning gray.

Every drop of blood that your spilled will be repaid ten times over. I denounce you, Uchiha Yumi, you and your entire family as hypocrites and murderers.

** And later:
-->'''Uxie''': "I do not understand your logic, thought processes, or how you have come to this conclusion.

Dr. Thunderstorm had just destroyed the MTM.
** Another one from "Lightning Man", revealing something about the titular villain:
--> '''Sheila:''' Know him?! Ha! [[TomatoSurprise He's our uncle!]]
** And the SeriesFinale has a whole load of them (sorted by the parts they appeared in):
*** In Part 1:
--->"Who are you…?" Rueben whispered in fear.
--->"I am Shadow," the robot replied, "and I am your future."
*** and:
--->Socrates stared at it, feeling dread building up in his gut. He paused it quickly.
--->It was a very tall man in a nice suit. What put Socrates at unease was the fact that [[TheSlenderManMythos the man's arms and legs seemed much longer than the average adult man's arms probably should've been. Plus, there was the fact that in the place where his face should've been, there was a blank white space.]]
*** In Part 2:
--->'''Socrates''': ''(on the phone)'' There is [[WebVideo/MarbleHornets a man standing at the back of my hallway, wearing a hoody and what appears to be a gas mask.]]
--->'''Calvin''': I see.
--->'''Socrates''': ''(on the phone)'' He's not really doing anything. He's just kinda staring at me. Wait, never mind. Now he's sprinting at me. Sprinting at me very fast... OH MY GOD! NO DON'T DO IT! AAAAAAUGH!
*** In Part 3:
--->'''Socrates''': I… I had some psycho with a knife in my house. The guy who tried to kidnap me had a knife.
*** and:
--->'''MTM''': Sorry. I mean it. I'm sorry. I genuinely didn't detect him. I swear.
*** and:
--->Sighing with relief, Jack got back up again and looked around.
--->What he saw next almost made him shut down.
--->It was Dr. Thunderstorm.
*** In Part 4:
--->'''Socrates''': This is blasphemy! There's a VHS in here!
*** In Part 5:
--->'''Dr. Thunderstorm''': Are they indeed? Well! How fortuitous! We shall have to prepare for them! Not to worry, Frank. I shall succeed where you have failed. I shall destroy Calvin and Hobbes, and I shall use the red-tailed tiger's chip to take over the world!
*** And Part 7 takes it UpToEleven:
--->They both rolled over the floor for a few moments before they both slammed into the opposite wall, and Shadow managed to smash open Jack's chest plating and get into his circuitry, [[FamilyUnfriendlyViolence yanking out a handful of wires, causing a shower of sparks to shoot out of the Jack's chest. The snarky robot's eyes drooped shut, and he shut down.]]
*** and:
--->Shadow walked up to the door and cautiously opened the door. He was prepared for anything. It was what he was designed for.
--->The problem was he couldn't actually detect whatever he was facing.
--->And right now, he was facing a [[WebVideo/MarbleHornets man in a hoody who was holding a knife that suddenly came down on his metal head, right between his eyes]].
*** and:
--->'''Dr. Thunderstorm''': No… It can't be… Not again… Not after all this time!
--->'''Calvin''': Wait, do you know who that is?
--->'''Dr. Thunderstorm''': I remember him… He came when… when I was a child…
--->'''Dr. Brainstorm''': Who the heck is he, though? What's his business? What's he…?
--->'''Dr. Thunderstorm''': It's started… He's here somewhere. But I remember. He took another last time. I'll make sure he takes another ''this'' time, too!
*** followed by this:
--->The lights flickered once more before they finally went out completely.
--->Everyone in the group suddenly hugged each other, deathly afraid of losing anyone.
--->And a moment later, they heard Thunderstorm's screams. [[HellIsThatNoise He screamed and screamed as loud as he could, sounding as though his terror quadrupled as he continued to scream]]. The scream turned into a screech, and the screech turned into a shriek, and then the shriek continued for a solid three seconds.
--->And then it stopped.
--->It happened so suddenly, they were almost deafened by the silence.
--->Five seconds later, the lights came back on, and when it did, the door was open, allowing the sunlight and cold air of the mountain to flow through the room.
--->Everyone remained frozen on the spot for at least another minute, each of them too horrified by what had transpired to budge from their spot.
--->Dr Thunderstorm was gone.
* In the second-to-last chapter of ''[[Fanfic/DeliverUsFromEvilSeries Mortality]]'', [[Literature/SherlockHolmes Professor Moriarty]] is engaged in a conversation. In the last line of the chapter, we learn who:

* The Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} fanfic ''FanFic/{{Cultstuck}}'', at the end of chapter 14, reveals why Karkat's mutant blood is indeed, [[LongTitle higher than the highest and]] [[CallBack lower than the lowest.]]
--> You don't pay them much attention; most of what little you can gather is wholly transfixed by the round, crystalline pool inlaid in the floor, and by Karkat's unconscious shape floating in it — hair swaying, eyelids translucent, the wide-slit gills lining his ribs gently pulsing in the current.
