*** [[spoiler:The manner in which Uryuu performs "reishi enslavement" is comparable to how "Old Man Zangetsu" absorbs Ichigo's Hollow spirit into himself, serving as a hint to the true nature of the old man in black.]]

* ''Manga/DigimonVTamer01'' is ''constantly'' foreshadowing future plot developments because the {{aver|tedtrope}}sion of DeusExMachina, OnlyTheAuthorCanSaveThem now and ContrivedCoincidence are very important to the development Neo Saiba's relationship with his sister Rei, as well as Alias Three and his goal to make a better world.

* There's quite a few moments of foreshadowing in the original ''ChronoCrusade'' manga that made it into the anime, only to never have the payoff work out thanks to the GeckoEnding. This includes Chrono's UnstoppableRage tendencies becoming a major plot point, to Rosette's watch causing her to appear as a ghost to people in the Order later being a key to [[spoiler:raising her from the dead]].

* During the Alabasta saga, Sanji took on the pseudonym "Mr. Prince" in order to help hide his existence from Crocodile. [[spoiler:Over a decade later (two years in-universe), it turns out Sanji is the third son of the Vinsmoke family, who once ruled all of North Blue with an iron fist, and still retain enough influence to attend the Reverie despite being a royal family with no land of their own anymore and functioning as assassins for hire. [[ReallyRoyaltyReveal That means Sanji really]] ''[[KingIncognito is]]'' [[MafiaPrincess a prince]].]]

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Kubo quite likes dropping little hints that only become important later (in fact he's announced that EVERYTHING becomes important at some point in the Final Arc), so this is only a partial list.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Kubo quite likes dropping little hints that only become important later (in fact he's announced that EVERYTHING becomes important at some point in the Final Arc), so this is only a partial list. Kubo's also in the habit of occasionally taking a hiatus for "research", meaning he goes back and reads all the old chapters to make sure he gets the details right when foreshadowed events actually happen.



** At the end of the Soul Society Arc, Ukitake quietly gave Ichigo a badge meant to mark him as a sanctioned substitute Shinigami. And yet, Uryuu thought something was off about the situation and the {{Mook}} guarding Karakura Town didn't recognise it. The ChekhovsGun took about 5 years to fire: [[spoiler:The badge is a spy device and Ichigo is only the second person one to receive one, after [[ArcVillain Ginjo Kugo]]. Ichigo reveals even he suspected the thing was a fake after a couple weeks' reflection.]]

* In the ''ShamanKing'' anime, in the first episodes Manta tells Yoh he's seen a boy like him, meaning he saw someone who's a Shaman like him. Yoh then says [[spoiler: that he doesn't have a twin, joking. Turns out he does have a [[EvilTwin twin]] [[BigBad brother]], as we find out several episodes later]]. Not sure if this is foreshadowing though, since his words were more like an accidental guess.

* In ''TigerAndBunny'', there's a curious tendency throughout the series for Barnaby's {{Troubled Backstory Flashback}}s to be a bit inconsistent with each other -- such as the same event taking place in different settings, or a person's clothing/appearance changing ever-so-slightly from one flashback to the next. This is one of the first hints that [[spoiler:someone's been [[FakeMemories messing around with his memory.]]]]
