* ''VideoGame/GoldenSunTheLostAge'' accomplishes this by way of BilingualBonus. When you reach the game's [[FantasyCounterpartCulture South America analogue]], you'll come upon a town called Contigo, which happens to be a Spanish word meaning "[[spoiler:with you]]". Innocuous enough that a town in the South America analogue would have a Spanish-sounding name, right? But if you're actually playing the game ''in Spanish'', [[KeepItForeign the town's name is changed to "Mitdir"]], which is German for "contigo". [[spoiler:After completing Jupiter Lighthouse, your party and the party from [[VideoGame/GoldenSunTheBrokenSeal the first game]] return to Contigo together, iron out the misunderstanding, and join forces.]]

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'': Of all of your starting party members, Vanille has an extra ATB segment and higher starting stats than the rest (which is particularly weird considering Lightning, Snow and Sazh are all trained fighters). Her tattoo also has an arrow immediately after the party is transformed into l'Cie. [[spoiler:It is because she has been a l'Cie for far longer than anyone else.]]

* [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClank2016 The reboot of Ratchet and Clank]] has a sneaky one, which only becomes obvious when you look carefully. [[spoiler: There are no golden bolts in the level Novalis.]]

** In Episode 2, no matter which member of the Order of the Stone you pick to recruit, the Wither Storm comes in and destroys their surroundings. [[spoiler:It turns out the Wither Storm is specifically programmed to follow the amulet of the Order of the Stone, which Jesse is holding.]]

* ''VisualNovel/XBlaze Lost: Memories'' has a character called Kiri, who wears a jumpsuit which has [[{{Zipperiffic}} a zipper which reaches up all the way to the end of his hood]]. Unusual character choice? Well, yes it is. [[spoiler: But if it's fully zipped up, his jumpsuit would resemble a body bag. He's the SerialKiller Ripper brought BackFromTheDead.

--> '''Seem''': At least I was granted the gift of seeing the face of [[{{Precursors}} my creators]]... thank you, [[spoiler: little one]].

* ''VideoGame/MinecraftStoryMode'':
** The prologue talks about how legends will eventually fade into myths and then lies. Immediately after that, it states that the "Legend of the Order of the Stone" will last forever. [[spoiler: As it turns out, even the "Legend of the Order of the Stone" got distorted, as the Order didn't even fight the Ender Dragon, having instead used the Command Block to blink it out of existence.]]
** Observing an empty display stand in the treefort will make Jesse comment that s/he hopes to one day own a set of armor. [[spoiler:You get to keep Magnus/Ellegaard's armor after one of them dies in ''The Last Place You Look'' and can also pick a suit of armor from Ivor's armory in ''A Block and a Hard Place''.]]
** In Episode 2, no matter which member of the Order of the Stone you pick to recruit, the Wither Storm comes in and destroys their surroundings. [[spoiler:It turns out the Wither Storm is specifically programmed to follow the amulet of the Order of the Stone, which Jesse is holding.]]

* In ''FullThrottle'', Mo's garage is described as an "illegitimate Corley Motors operation". (since she doesn't have the official paperwork) [[spoiler: It's later revealed that Mo is the illegitimate daughter of Malcolm Corley, owner of Corley Motors]]

* There were several nice {{Continuity Nod}}s in [[RatchetAndClankFutureACrackInTime A Crack in Time]], which was to be expected, being the third of a trilogy and all, but looking back on it, there's clear foreshadowing from [[RatchetAndClankFutureToolsOfDestruction Tools of Destruction]] to [=ACiT=]. The most obvious is set up on Planet Reepor after Qwark [[spoiler: gives Tachyon the Dimensionator]]. The Dimensionator lets loose a shockwave as it's fired up and knocks Ratchet out. This leads up to a scene where the audience is shown [[spoiler: Clank reaching for Ratchet, as the latter falls into an abyss.]] This is repeated, minus Dimensionator and Cragmites, in the climax of [=ACiT=]. In addition to this, the still for the pre-final boss cutscene in [=ToD's=] cutscene viewer is suspiciously similar to part of the cutscene [[spoiler: The Last Lombax]] from [=ACiT=].

** Since we've already mentioned Rise from the Ashes, it's also worth noting a line from Gant, later in that trial, which may allude to ApolloJustice:

**There is massive foreshadowing that [[spoiler: Solas is the ancient elven god Fen'Harel]] throughout ''[[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition Inquisition]]''.
*** He is shown to have a fondness for wolves; he has a canine jaw hanging around his neck, wears a wolf pelt, paints wolves in his frescoes and passionately defends them when Cole brings them up. [[spoiler: Fen'Harel is also known as The Dread Wolf.]]
*** He has great knowledge of the ancient elves and speaks elven fluently, despite most elves only knowing a few words. He vaguely attributes this knowledge to his extensive travels in the Fade. [[spoiler: In Dalish legend, Fen'Harel is said to have been wandering the Fade since he locked away the gods.]]
*** At the Temple of Mythal, he constantly contradicts Morrigan's lore about the gods, telling oddly specific stories about them -- except for [[spoiler:Fen'Harel]], who he refuses to talk about.
*** He is inconsistent about including himself with other elves. He gets rather offended if grouped together with them, denying they have anything in common. Other times, he will refer to "my people" when speaking vaguely about elves. [[spoiler: It's revealed ancient elves consider modern elves a different race. Replace "my people" with "ancient elves" and what he says makes much more sense.]]
*** If an Inquisitor who has low approval with Solas asks if he can help the elves, he sarcastically says he couldn't unless he tore down the Veil and "casually reshaped reality" [[spoiler: ...which you find out later is exactly his plan.]]
*** If asked about him, Sera will say Solas' head is "crammed up a thousand years ago."
