* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'', a tiny detail in the fifth episode foreshadows the ending of the entire series. Lelouch fiddles with a chessboard as he delivers the line "When somebody wins, the fighting will end," [[spoiler:and moves the white knight to "kill" the black king.]] This foreshadows [[spoiler:how he arranges for his own death at Suzaku's hands, as the two chess pieces had already been associated with their respective characters.]]

** Yuuri's [[spoiler:SanitySlippage]] was foreshadowed twice beforehand. [[spoiler:She was first shown to be more mentally fragile than Miki and Kurumi when she completely freaked out at having to [[KillTheOnesYouLove possibly kill Kurumi.]] Later she became a sobbing, screaming mess when the rescue helicopter crashed.]] Both are realistic reactions however in a manga where [[AngstWhatAngst things are taken with stride]] it's noticeable this was foreshadowing for something.

* The first anime had major foreshadowing for the manga. . Example 1: Mustang's [[spoiler:defeat of Pride in the final episode has a lot in common with his defeat of Lust in the manga (both homunculi impale him with their respective weapons during the battle, and both are ultimately killed by Mustang burning them with his bare hands until their regenerative abilities are exhausted.]] Example 2: [[spoiler:At the end of the anime, Mustang loses an eye. Guess what? In the manga he goes completely BLIND.]] Example 3: [[spoiler: Riza Hawkeye emotionally shoots Archer to death after thinking Roy is dead. She does the same in the manga to Lust but it doesn't work in the latter case.]] Heck, even tiny things as Ed's Conqueror of Shamballa hairstyle looking eerily similar to his hairstyle in the manga's final arc and the stealth crowd appearance by Ling foreshadow the manga's events in various ways.

* Throughout ''Manga/SatouKashiNoDanganWaUchinukenai'' Umino Mokozu insists she is a mermaid who must return to the ocean, after making a 'true friend', before an upcoming once-a-decade storm or she will die. The whole thing comes off as a metaphor. [[spoiler:The needed a friend to help her escape from her [[AbusiveParents abusive dad]] before it's too late. Alas it [[OffingtheOffspring was too late]] in the end]]. ** Mokuzu's name means "scraps of seaweed from the sea". It's an odd name and classmates even wonder what type of parent would name their kid such a name. It'd make sense for a mermaid at least.. [[spoiler:Mokuzu's dad had been abusing her from infancy, to the point where she has a permanent limp due to a hip injury received as a baby and a broken eardrum which leaves her deaf in one ear. An abusive dad like him would be the type to name his kid such a name]]. *** In the very first chapter, right after her introduction, she trips. Nagisa sees bruises under her skirt. A few pages later we see she walks with a limp, which she states is due to the witch that turned her into human.

[[spoiler:Mokuzu's dad had been abusing the other characters often cut her from infancy, off mid-sentence. ** In the first episode's opening, the only time you see other students is in Yuki's parts. Additionally, once we get to the point where she has a permanent limp due to a hip injury received as a baby first episode itself, any student that isn't interacting directly with Yuki is white and a broken eardrum which leaves her deaf in one ear. An abusive dad like him featureless...but most anime fans would be ignore that, since that's a common way to draw unimportant characters. In hindsight, you realize that it's because [[spoiler:Yuki probably imagines the type to name his kid people interacting with her more vividly than those she assigns as "set dressing".]] Also before {{The Reveal}} near the end of episode 1, several hints are shown in Miki's facial expression when interacting with Yuki when finding Taromaru, such a name]]. *** In the very first chapter, right after her introduction, she trips.

** Shun's status as a FriendToAllChildren ([[spoiler: [[ChildSoldiers children from Academia excluded for obvious reasons]]]]) has been hinted at. First when he reacted slightly to the cries of children during his duel with Sora, then his anger at [[TagalongKid Reira]] being brought to [[spoiler: Synchro]] was probably his way of expressing concern for Reira's safety.
