** Naked Snake asks the Boss why she defected. Her response? [[spoiler: "I didn't."]]

** Within minutes of The Boss declaring there ''are'' no friends on the battlefield, merely allies, she refers to The Cobra Unit as "Her friends". Not long later Naked Snake asks the The Boss why she defected. Her response? [[spoiler: "I didn't."]]" The game ''literally'' hammers you over the head within a half hour of her introduction that she's a FakeDefector, but her act is so good you won't catch on the first time around.]]

** This was possibly not planed beforehand, but Charizard's Gen 2 Pokedex entries mention its tail flame glowing blue when angry. Four generations later, in ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon}}XAndY'' Charizard got a mega evolution that has blue flames leaking out its mouth and tail.

* VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue has an example in the Viridian City gym, which although it's the first gym you see, it's actually the last one you battle in. It is closed for most of the game.

* ''AssassinsCreed'' employs this at times. Perhaps most notably, the mentor character Al Mualim remarks about halfway through [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedI the first game]] that, despite his and the Assassins' opposition to the Templars, he does not disagree with the Templars' ultimate goal of world peace and in fact wants also wants to achieve it. It's revealed at the very end that [[spoiler: Al Mualim himself is secretly a Templar, and in fact is the FinalBoss]]. In ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'', Rodrigo Borgia is foreshadowed as an important character practically from the very beginning when Ezio delivers a letter to friend-of-the-family Uberto Alberti (who is actually a Templar) when Rodrigo is seen in Uberto's house and, later, at the execution of Ezio's father and brothers.

Added DiffLines:

** In ''Warlords of Draenor'' the fight against Kilrogg has him send players into a vision of their eventual death. While Alliance players find themselves defending the throne room of Stormwind, Horde found themselves defending the Undercity's throne room rather than Orgrimmar. In the start of the next expansion [[spoiler:Vol'jin was killed and Sylvanas became Warchief]].

* ''Videogame/{{Evolve}}'' has the Behemoth monster, which is covered in dense rocky armor. Note the word rocky because it actually is rock, not just chitin or bone that resembles rock. It's a bit strange that it has armor made from literal stone, but that's far from the biggest question surrounding the monsters. The pay-off came over a year and a half later: [[spoiler: the monsters aren't limited to biology. They'll always have a fleshy base, but they can pull together bodies out of ''anything''. It was rocks in this case, but they're fully capable of growing anti-material cannons and energy weapons.]]
