* ''VideoGame/SenranKagura'' primarily revolves around the ForeverWar between Good Shinobi and Evil Shinobi ([[GrayAndGreyMorality titles that really have little to do with morality]]), where ChildSoldiers are drafted into a world where death is a constant possibility. A byproduct of this conflict are creatures called [[TheHeartless Yoma]], which both sides will drop everything to defeat. Those who abandon the Shinobi life are branded renegades and will be hunted down by their respective side, living on the run. And then ''Shinovi Versus'' reveals [[spoiler: this whole war is actually a ploy. The Yoma aren't byproducts of the war, but the reason it began in the first place. There exists an ancient creature called [[EldritchAbomination Shin]], progenitor of the Yoma and the one responsible for all large-scale calamities in the world, which will continue to claim lives until it's defeated. In order to draw it and the other Yoma out of their pocket dimension, enough blood must be spilled in conflict. The secondary purpose of the Shinobi war is to train fighters capable of defeating Shin. These can be Good, Evil, or Renegade Shinobi, so long as they're strong enough.]]

* ''Film/TheMidnightMeatTrain'' begins as a [[SlasherFilm Slasher]]-esque story about a musclebound maniac who murders people on a midnight subway train. The protagonist eventually defeats him, only to discover that the killer was part of a city-wide conspiracy to deliver human sacrifices to the indescribable terrors that live underground. [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie He's forced to become the new Butcher]] and continue the cycle.

* ''Literature/JourneyToChaos'' starts out with Eric being tossed through dimensions by a trickster god to [[GrewASpine grow a spine]] and [[ItAmusedMe provide amusement]]. Then it turns out that said trickster god is molding him through his adventures into a vessel for its mother, Lady Chaos, so that she may [[DivineConflict better wage war against another one of]] ThePowersThatBe, Order. This shifts the focus of the story away from worldly mercenary missions and towards more philosophical confrontations and stabbing the other guy's clerics, along with bouts of WillingChanneler that have a possibility of damaging reality.
* In the original story of ''Literature/TheMidnightMeatTrain'', if the whole "killing humans to be fed to deformed humans underground that are the true fathers of the city" shtick isn't bad enough, well, it's all for immortality granted by pleasing an EldritchAbomination.



* In ''Literature/TheSisterVerseAndTheTalonsOfRuin'', the true scope of a greater, cosmic war is revealed as soon as the real villain shows up, and reality starts disintegrating.
* The final novel of ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'' drops the bombshell revealing that the world in which the entire series has taken place is a tiny remnant of a much larger universe, and this remnant is surrounded by thousands of hungry, starving demons trying to break in and eat everything. The plot then shifts to the heroes trying to prevent the barrier between the remnant and the great nothingness from breaking.

* ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' starts off fairly light-hearted, centering on street-dancing teenagers who've recently gotten into a {{Mons}}-like battle game to settle disputes; even when the titular armored heroes are introduced, it's generally PlayedForLaughs because they're literally fruit samurai. [[spoiler:And then we learn that the Mons come from another realm dominated by AlienKudzu that's devoured entire civilizations in the past...and Earth is its next target. The guy who looked like the BigBad is actually trying to save humanity, there are intelligent beings ruling the Forest (who generally want to destroy Earth), and in the end the hero has to give up his humanity and become one of the monsters in order to protect the people he cares about.]] Of course, considering the series was helmed by Creator/GenUrobuchi (see ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' above), plenty of fans were expecting a twist like this from the very beginning.
* At the start of ''Series/KamenRiderBuild'', the plot seems to be about trying to stop an evil syndicate in a Balkanized Japan following an apocalyptic disaster. While definitely a sci-fi story, the villains are humans doing rotten things who create monsters with experiments, and even the second arc is a War Arc with the same base ideas... and then it's revealed that [[spoiler: everything is being orchestrated by a planet destroying AncientEvil spirit accidentally released from the last planet he destroyed predating life on Earth who's been possessing the astronaut who unearthed him since then.]]

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' has a slow yet eerily casual start - our two heroes wrestle with the military authority they work under and with assorted villains of the smaller kind on their quest to find a way to heal themselves... And then it kicks off. It's not just about all characters in the story, the nation, the conspiracy or even the God of their world - it's about the very concept the story is based on, EquivalentExchange. All people are a part of the plot, and it has been going on over hundreds of years, and is dominated by a near DemiGod. Good luck, Elrics.


* ''Anime/KillLaKill'' starts off with Ryuko fighting the AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil, led by the dictatorial Satsuki. It turns out that Satsuki was trying to rebel against her mother Ragyo. The Life Fibers that make up the clothing that [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman give people superpowers]] are actually alien parasites that have shaped the course of human evolution, and Ragyo wants to accelerate their ultimate goal: consume every human on Earth and use their energy to explode the planet, sending new Life Fibers hurtling towards other worlds.
