* In the intro for ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'', it's stated that Cuphead and Mugman found The Devil's casino "on the WrongSideOfTheTracks". At the end of the game, you need to fight the Phantom Express to get to the casino, meaning that it's ''literally'' on the wrong side of the tracks.

* In the first level of ''VideoGame/EarthwormJim'', you launch a cow into the air. At a couple of points during play, you see that cow fly by [[FunnyBackgroundEvent in the background]]. At the very end of the game, the cow lands on [[DistressedDamsel Princess What's-Her-Name]]. The joke continues into [[WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim the animated series]], in which every episode ended with [[DropTheCow a cow dropping out of the sky and landing on a random person for no reason.]]

In the last audio log, the then-president of Hyperion claims to be unafraid of Jack's blackmail attempts, to which Handsome Jack responds "Maybe you could clear something up for me... [[PreMortemOneLiner do you know the difference between choking and strangulation?]]"

* At the start of the first chapter of ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'', the doorknob on the front door of Flint's house comes off when Thomas tries to open it. He pockets it, only to later remark that he lost it if you talk to him. From then on, random [=NPC=]s throughout the story will mention having seen it if you talk to them, though doesn't it actually show up until the very last dungeon of the game, where it ends up falling off a cliff when you try to pick it up. [[spoiler:You finally manage to reclaim it in the game's ending, when it inexplicably turns up in the darkness you're left wandering prior to the credits roll.]]

*** 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/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', early in the game, the bridge across the river is blocked by a group of women chatting about how they dislike housework. One of them comments on how she's bad at cleaning her house and wishes there was someone to do it for her. A while later -- after you find your Loftwing, race in the Wing Ceremony, fly with Zelda, wake up after she falls into the tornado, find Fi and get the Goddess Sword, you're finally able to go across the bridge, and if you go in her house, you'll find that it's ''[[ExtremelyDustyHome completely]]'' [[ExtremelyDustyHome covered in dust and spiderwebs]]. Much later in the game, you finally get an item that is able to blow the dust out, so you do actually clean the house for her.
** After she pays you for cleaning the house, if you come back later at night, you'll hear her son yelling at her for wasting the money he earned at his [[JustForPun knight job]] for her to buy food. He comes outside and talks to you, wondering aloud [[NiceJobBreakingItHero what kind of jerk would help his mother with her money-wasting endeavors.]] Not sarcastically; he really doesn't know it was you. Link, apparently, does not tell him.

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', when you first meet Tulin in Rito Village, you can greet him with "good morning" or "good evening". Greeting him wrong (as in saying good morning when it's night out and vice versa) has him saying that's a weird way to greet someone. Talking to him again after clearing Vah Medoh has him greet Link as "the weird greeter guy."
