* ''Manga/ShinMazingerZero'': When [[RobotGirl Minerva-X]] sees ''[[Anime/MazingerZ Kouji Kabuto]]'' fighting [[RobotGirl the Gamia sisters]], she's amazed, since a human being shouldn't be capable of moving so fast or hitting so hard. Later on, she discovers that [[spoiler:Kouji had become a cyborg in that timeline.]]

* In the ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' manga, during the Rescue Miu arc, Kenichi and company join forces with a mercenary known only as John, who's presented as something of a buffoon but otherwise cheerful and optimistic. At one point during the arc, John shows a bit of HiddenDepths when he easily gives Kenichi a bit of math tutoring, while commenting that he's always had a talent for teaching other people. [[spoiler:It later turns out "John" is a disguise for Saiga Furinji, Miu's DisappearedDad and the leader of Yami's One Shadow Nine Fists; this particular group consists of Yami's top ten martial arts masters who are chosen for the group based on their ability to ''teach disciples properly'']].

* When Haruko first hits Naota with her guitar in ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'', she yells "lunch time!" and in the final episode what does she do to Naota? [[spoiler: She yells lunch time and feeds him to the terminal core.]] Doubles as a CallBack.

* Absolutely ''everywhere'' in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. Why are characters (especially Kyouko) often depicted eating something? What does cooking eggs have to do with the worth of a woman? When you rewatch the episodes after [[spoiler:you watch episode 10]], you're going to cringe at the Foreshadowing.
** [[Manga/DeathNote I'll take this apple...]] [[MemeticMutation AND EAT IT!]]
** During the girls' first (shown) conversation at Mami's apartment [[spoiler: there's an interesting shot where the reflection of Mami's head on the glass table is shown superimposed over her legs, as if it were lying in her lap.]] Come episode 3.... Later in that same conversation [[spoiler: there's another shot where Mami's entire torso is bisected by the glass, letting us know *exactly* how Charlotte eats her meals...]]

** Marnie dresses in a vintage fashion that resembles styles from the early to mid 20th century. It's unusual for a girl her age but not particularly unheard of and it establishes her [[GirlyGirlAndTomboy the girly girl to Anna's tomboy]]. [[spoiler:It also foreshadows that Marnie is DeadAllAlong and not a modern child]].

* There are multiple signs in ''Anime/TokyoMagnitude8'' that [[spoiler:Yuuki had [[DeadAllAlong died]], and his sister is [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness hallucinating]] him around in her grief,]] before TheReveal two episodes later. There is Mari's reaction to Mirai [[spoiler:acting as if he's alive]], minor characters not [[spoiler:interacting with Yuuki]], and Yuuki's frequent [[spoiler:random disappearances]].

* Say, remember how in the early chapters of ''MahouSenseiNegima'', there was that [[spoiler:[[WarriorPrince Negi is a prince]]]] rumor that spread in Negi's class? Guess what's been revealed more than ''two hundred chapters'' later?

** Wendy is shown in some [[SpoilerOpening Fairy Tail group shots]] well before being invited to join. That's certainly different from ''OnePiece'''s policy...

** Several hints were shown before TheReveal that [[spoiler:Megu-nee is [[DeadAllAlong not what she appears to be]]]] like how she got into the toilet that Yuki's in even though it's locked from the inside. Everyone tends to have {{Delayed Reaction}}s towards her and the other characters often cut her off mid-sentence. A chapter before [[spoiler:Megu-nee is officially revealed as dead]] we get foreshadowing by her ominous ApocalypseLog about how she doesn't care what happens to her as long as the kids are safe.

* 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.
