* ''VideoGame/TheSexyBrutale'': After murdering Sixpence, Two Diamonds complains about the absence of Seven Clubs. Much later you can find out what Seven Clubs is actually doing - [[spoiler: he's playing piano for Tequila, and perfectly happy he's not anywhere near the chapel.]]

* 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."

** Play the DLC ''Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep'' and get hit by this brick: the main quest line involves saving a queen; however, most of the characters from the original game get folded into Tina's story before the queen is found. So who can the queen be? [[spoiler:In the beginning of the game, when the campaign is just beginning, Handsome Jack mocks the player, belittling their chances - and, over the course of the mockery, talking about how he's going to buy a pony literally made of diamonds; he decides to name it ''Butt Stallion'' in honor of the player. Many levels later, having battled through Dragon Keep, you'll finally meet your queen - Butt Stallion, the diamond pony.]]

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'': The third game in particular uses a ''lot'' of references to the first two for punchlines.

** In ''2'', Joker makes a crack about Garrus, who turned VigilanteMan between games, having "taken the stick out of his ass and started beating people with it." Come ''3'', you can run into him and Garrus trading jokes about each other's respective species, and that wisecrack is now the punchline to "How do you know a turian is out of ammo?"
--->'''Garrus:''' Come on, that one's as old as Shanxi.

** In ''Warlords of Draenor'', soon after passing through the Dark Portal, you encounter Kargath Bladefist, who traps you and your party in an arena and tasks you with killing one hundred of his minions. But you only kill 99 of them before Khadgar leads your party out into the next area. (Khadgar's response: "Then I guess we owe you one.") Ten levels later, in Highmaul, you enter another arena, and Kargath Bladefist is back (and he is angry that you cheated him out of a fight). Then when you defeat him, his last words are "One... hundred."
