While this revelation ends the mystery of searching for the sender of the love letter, it doesn't end Keiki's search for a girlfriend, since he later discovers that Mizuha is just as perverted as the rest of his UnwantedHarem.

** A much more coherent example. When Izaya is in the hospital after [[spoiler:being stabbed]], the event is broadcasted in the news, telling anyone watching his current condition and where he is. He then spends the entire day wondering who will come to kill him. However, the Awakusu leader, Mikiya, whose daughter had been manipulated by Izaya, completely misses the story. Shizuo doesn’t see it either as he had been working while it was on, and even Shinra doesn't notice and later doesn’t even care. Izaya stays awake all night waiting for someone to attack him until finally, at around three AM, someone enters his room. Izaya gets excited, wanting to see which one of his enemies has come to kill him and watches as... a girl he doesn't remember walks in. She then goes on about how Izaya ruined her life and how she has spent a year preparing to kill him and finally tells him about [[spoiler:how Izaya had invited her to kill herself with him and then mocked her desire to die and drugged her]].

** In the beginning of the series, it is unknown who the boss of the Dollars is. Kyohei speculates that it's Izaya, however it is actually revealed to be [[spoiler:Mikado]].
** In the final arc, Izaya spends most of his time waiting around, preparing for something. Celty asks Namie, who refuses to divulge what Izaya is planning and not even Mika knows. Izaya is seen playing with tarot cards and picks a few to represent the 'non-humans', who he says should sit 'it' out and burns them. He heads out and tells Mikage to come with him so she can fight an unspecified opponent who, supposedly should prove challenging. Izaya then goes to a building under construction where he surveys the situation before [[spoiler:having the equipment fall onto Shizuo and Vorona]]. He calls Shizuo who comes up the building after him to kill Izaya and has more equipment rain down on him, as well as lights the floor on fire. Finally, Shizuo is shown on his knees, gasping as Izaya reveals his [[spoiler:real plan was to use carbon dioxide to suffocate Shizuo and finally blow it up]]. However, [[spoiler:Celty interferes and Izaya is beaten by Shizuo and shot by Vorona. His fate is unknown until the very end, where it's revealed that he is still alive, but may not be for very long]].
*** In the light novels, it is confirmed he survived.


* Also, in the first season, there is a girl walking around with what appears to be Celty's head attached to her. Seiji, who was obsessed with the head before it had a body dates the girl after his classmate, Mika, broke into his home while stalking him and was apparently murdered by Seiji after seeing the head. Afterwards, Anri meets the girl that looks like Celty as she mistakes her for Mika, but then runs away after realizing it wasn't. Mikado is put under the impression that Seiji killed Mika and had Namie attach Celty's head to her corpse. When Celty talks to Shinra, he gives her a similar story and says that the head may have tried to find a body. When Celty finally goes to meet with the girl to confirm whether or not it is her head, the girl merely says [[spoiler:'Celty', which causes Celty to think it is her head]]. However, when Seiji angrily tries to stab Mikado, Celty intervenes and attempts to slice him with her scythe but is stopped when the girl runs out in front to save him. She then [[spoiler:confesses that she is Mika Harima and the night Seiji tried to kill her, Namie convinced her to have Shinra do plastic surgery on her face to look like the head so Seiji would love her. She escaped after Namie wanted her to get surgery and do drugs to alter her memories, and had been lying to Seiji ever since]].
* Things get a little hectic with Saika, as for some reason, someone has been going around slashing people. Previously, there had been slasher attacks, but they abruptly stopped. One night, a girl named, Haruna Niekawa, in love with the teacher, Takashi Nasujima, pays Anri a visit. She reveals herself [[spoiler:as a Saika wielder who has gained control of the blade]]. She tries attacking Anri and eventually [[spoiler:summons a horde of Saika zombies to deal with her]]. However, Anri escapes the ordeal unharmed. Later, Anri confronts her and [[spoiler:shows Haruna she has the original Saika and uses it to cut her and stop the slasher attacks]]. It is also revealed that [[spoiler:Anri's mother was the original slasher and the attacks stopped because she used the blade to save Anri by killing her self and her husband. Anri then took the blade and kept it at bay as she was unable to love anyone]]. It is ''then'' revealed that [[spoiler:the reason her mother, Sayaka, obtained it in the first place was because Kasane Kujiragi, who had the blade, had broken into two and then sold one of the swords to Shingen who then sold it to Anri's parents. Later, Kasane makes a deal with Shinra, but it isn't shown until later when he uses the sword, which he had been loaned to sever Celty's head]].

----* ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'': Zigzagged all over the place. Earthworm captures [[spoiler:Izaya Orihara]] and keeps his head under a bag. For the entire episode/volume, he does not speak even as she tries to question him. The whole time, we are lead to believe that it is [[spoiler:Izaya]] who's been captured as the captive is wearing his clothes. However, when Shijima and Heaven's Slave go to negotiate with Amphisbaena, both he and Earthworm get a call from someone using a voice modifier. Said person tells them he is [[spoiler:Izaya Orihara]] and begins to allude to the idea that the leaders' [[spoiler:shared boss (neither of them know they have the same boss), who they both use as a puppet leader, is actually the captive]]. Both start to panic and the audience is then under the impression that [[spoiler:it isn't Izaya who has been captured]]. Once the person on the other end starts making references to physical characteristics of [[spoiler:the boss]], Shijima, afraid he'll be found out by his gang, tries to stab the captive, only for the captive, who should've been bound to use his knife to cut open the bag. Finally, it is revealed that [[spoiler:it really was Izaya who had been captured, and that he had orchestrated the entire thing as his own group busts in]]. ''Then'', we find out the boss is actually [[spoiler:Nakura, Izaya's old classmate who started both gangs, however has been under Izaya's thumb since grade school]].

** The Sabaody Archipelago arc has a more comical one in the form of the MysteriousMaskedMan Duval, who bears an intense grudge against Sanji for unknown reasons despite the two apparently having never met. When the mask comes off, the Straw Hat discover that [[spoiler: Duval looks ''exactly'' like Sanji's poorly-drawn wanted poster, and is angry about all the unwanted attention he's gotten as a result.]]

** The earliest example is the mysterious young man Raven turning out to be Gilbert, ten years older from when Oz last saw him. The reason this is not put as a spoiler is because it's extremely obvious, unlike every other reveal in the series.
** Two dramatic [[spoiler:TomatoInTheMirror]] examples: [[spoiler:Elliot,]] obsessed with the finding the true identity of the man [[spoiler:slowly killing off the Nightray family,]] is finally given the answer. [[spoiler:It's him. Well, he's one of them, anyway--the other is his older adoptive brother.]] As for the second example, [[spoiler:Oz]] finds out ''he's'' the [[spoiler:B-Rabbit, not Alice.]]
