As he retreats, [[TheHero Hamil]] offers him land grants for his veterans if he switch sides, something TheEmpire did in its heyday. He admits the offer is very enticing but it's too late and they'll loose. [[spoiler: Fast forward to the final approach on Alba Longa, as TheParty wonder if any of TheEmpire's legions will switch sides, they find him having already put the city under siege and is waiting for them]].

** In both of the [[VideoGame/PokemonColosseum Gamecube Pokémon games]], you meet a stout and kind old man 15 minutes into the game. [[spoiler: They are the leaders of Cipher, the crime syndicate terrorizing Orre, and they are the final bosses of their respective games]].

* In ''VideoGame/TheSilentAge'' Joe's pal [[spoiler:Frank]] is only mentioned once at the very start of the game, when Joe is offered his part of the job. Eventually though, [[spoiler:Frank turns out to be a key character in inadvertently bringing about the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Apocalypse]] after he steals the TimeMachine]].



* In the start of ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3'', Geralt meets a humble mirror merchant by the name of Gaunter O'Dimm who tells him where to find Yennefer and then vanishes for the rest of the game. He then reappears in the ''Hearts of Stone'' expansion, [[spoiler: and reveals himself to be [[SatanicArchetype a powerful demon]] and the expansion's antagonist]].



* ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}} Episode I'' features an EarlyBirdCameo of sorts for one of the major villains of ''Episode III'', the android T-elos. Plans for T-elos are visible scattered around a U-Tic Organization battleship that Jr. and his crew storm. The mysterious young boy Abel also gets a split-second EarlyBirdCameo in the game's ending. Also, several scenes from ''Episode I'''s "8 Minute" trailer showcased key events like Jin and Margulis' epic sword fight and the unveiling of Proto Omega, which don't occur until well into ''Episode II''.

** During the game, you may find Duel Manuals explaining the various battle minigames. They are signed by a certain 'BF'. [[spoiler: Butterfly is one of Darking's generals and the one writing the manuals. She gives you some info when you meet her. Then she becomes the main character of two scenarios, [[BadAss kicking butts]] [[ActionGirl left and right.]]]]

** Did you think that [[spoiler: Stickbug]] was just a character thrown in for a cute boss battle? Think again! [[spoiler: He ends up being one of Ant Queen's partners in her scenario.]]

* In the RPGMaker game PromDreams, [[spoiler:there's a girl in a wheelchair who you can find outside of the lunch room, in the music room, and in the library of the school. She rarely addresses the player, and she's typically seen alongside the supposed villain, Claire. It turns out that she's actually Dolores, the BigBad, while Claire is in fact her [[TheDragon Dragon]].]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Killer 7}}'', while running through the early stages your character is constantly being contacted by a man named Johnny Gagnon, his messages arriving by carrier pigeon. This wouldn't be too unusual if he didn't address every letter to someone named Emir and wasn't writing ''about'' the Smith syndicate you play as. [[spoiler:Later, you learn about a man named Emir Parkreiner, who is the most important character in the game and the murderer of the Killer7 in their past lives. It would make sense that Emir hired Gagnon to get information on the seven assassins so as to have some intel on his targets]].
