* The Winstrate family in ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' can be fought around the same time as the third gym. After you beat them all--the dad, mom, girl, and grandma, [[AlphabeticalThemeNaming who all have names starting with V]]--they all brag about their fifth family member, a boy, who is supposedly far stronger than any of them, though they don't tell you his name. Much later, on the final route before the [[FinalBoss Pokemon League]], you meet a male trainer named Vito who says he trained with his whole family. After you become the first trainer to ever beat him, he loses his over-confidence and doesn't even want to challenge the League anymore.

** Early on in Marie's Social Link she asks you what "steak" is short for, allowing the player to answer in one of three ways, including "steak-out" and "steaaaaaaaak". Several Social Link ranks later, she brings it up once again, probably after you long since forgot what you told her making the occasion funnier, especially since the scene is fully voiced.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta 2}}'', at one point, Bayonetta and Enzo take a small plane to the sacred mountain of Fimbulventr. When they get close enough, Bayonetta bids him farewell and jumps out, at which point it is revealed that Bayonetta was controlling the plane with her magic, causing Enzo to panic because he has no idea how to fly or land the plane. In the epilogue, Bayonetta suddenly realizes she completely forgot about Enzo, then the plane flies into the area, under attack from evil angels and with Enzo desperately trying to keep it under control.

* In ''VideoGame/Halo3ODST'' Buck tells [[DeadpanSnarker Romeo]] to shut up as a standing order after being irritated by his constant quipping in the opening cutscene. Romeo then invokes this trope in the second mission:
-->'''Buck:''' What the heck was that? You ever seen one before?\\
(after Romeo remains silent) '''Buck:''' Hey, Romeo! You got your ears on?\\
(Romeo shrugs)\\
'''Buck:''' Oh, I get it. Permission to speak, smart ass.

* In the first act of ''VideoGame/TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland'', Elaine is about to punch Guybrush when she finds out the engagement ring he gave her is cursed, when the curse kicks in and she turns into a gold statue. Near the end of the game, Elaine is freed of the curse and finishes punching Guybrush.
** The ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' series is full of these. Throwaway lines like [[spoiler:"I can hold my breath for 10 minutes"]] can come back into play ''much'' later. We say "can" because sometimes a punchline is delivered after the player has been allowed to roam around freely.

* ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'' has many, most of them subtle in-jokes.
** The most obvious one being Phi's "man" speech at the start of the game. Not only does she repeat it right at the end of the game in the [[spoiler:"another time" branch to "Kyle"]], but she also uses the punchline, "I am no man", at another time in the middle of the game in response to Dio's words.
** There's also when Phi jokes to Sigma in one of the timelines about him seeing her in a swimsuit, just before [[spoiler:they're all killed by a bomb]]. In another timeline, Sigma recalls information from this timeline, and brings up Phi's "promise" of swimsuit "action". This is also a brick joke to one of the hidden files, which is labled "swimsuit" and mentions how "Sigma, or the author, seems to be unusually obsessed with swimsuits".
** A lot of the jokes and throw-away lines come back to gain significance later on. One of the jokes right at the start of the game involves the word "grandpa", which goes on to gain significance with the game's final, and most major plot twist: [[spoiler:the fact that Sigma is actually 67 years old]].
