    Mystique: And now, it's about to get much worse.
  • From Xiaolin Showdown episode "In the Flesh".
    Clay: There's a bright side: he only rustled up one, the Serpent's Tail.
    Omi: Why would Raimundo just take one Shen Gong Wu?
    Master Fung: Because that one Shen Gong Wu is all that Wuya needs!
    Kimiko: Is the Serpent's Tail really all that?
    Dojo: You got that ominous thing going on. Care to spill the beans?
    Master Fung: On its own the Serpent's Tail is no great threat: it makes a solid person ghostly.
    Dojo: But combined with the Reversing Mirror..
    Omi: ...it would turn a ghostly person solid!
    Clay and Kimiko: Wuya!!
    Master Fung: Precisely.

    • And from "Happy New Year", FIVE YEARS LATER
    • From "Bloodlines": The happy go lucky, carefree Bart from this episode is almost entirely an act hiding that he's from a Bad Future where The Flash is dead.
      Bart Allen: "Better get into character."
    • Subverted nicely, in "Depths".
      Nightwing: She's dead.
    • For context, Nightwing asks Artemis to rejoin the team. On the mission, they fight Aqualad who has already been revealed to have made a Face-Heel Turn, who stabs her in the chest with the line "Welcome Back." After the second wham line, it's revealed to have been a ruse and Artemis is in fact alive, and Aqualad never really made a Face-Heel Turn.
      Nightwing: We'd laugh about this some day.
    • From "The Hunt": Said to the Reach Embassador, whom up til now Godfrey has been completely supportive of.
      G. Gordon Godfrey: So, please explain to the good folks at home how it squares with the lies you told us, and the fleet of warships you hid beneath our oceans.
    • From "Summit":
      Kaldur: It's too late, father. I've already... won.
    • And...
      Kaldur: That's all I needed to hear.
    • From "Endgame":
      The Scarab: The Kid Flash's slower speed is making him a target for the energy blasts. In sixteen seconds, he will cease.
      Jaime: Cease? Cease what?
