* 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.

* In ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle'', Sylvia tempts Travis into rejoining the ranked fights with the promise of sex, telling him she's an expert in yoga positions.

* ''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]].

* In ''VideoGame/StarCraftIIWingsOfLiberty'', there's a news segment where the reporter informs people that Zerglings have a lemon juice allergy. Given the tone and the guy reporting it, it comes across as just another propaganda piece. Cue ''VideoGame/StarCraftIIHeartOfTheSwarm'' where Abathur makes an offhand comment about needing to fix the Zergling lemon juice allergy.
