Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheReader2016'' has "This is a book". Fitting, since books and writing itself are completely alien concepts to most of the people in the setting.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has variations on "a storm is coming" throughout Book I, alluding to the constant, steady build-up of trouble and evil, before the storm is finally unleashed in the epic 4 part finale (chapters 75-78, not counting the two chapter epilogue. An argument can be made for chapter 74 being a part of it too), when everything comes to a head. It relates to the title, with Harry being the titular 'Child of the Storm.' As the son of Thor, this is literally true, but with the way trouble tends to follow him around, and how he's at the very centre of events (by the design of [[spoiler: Doctor Strange]]), it also refers to the more figurative storm.
** Doctor Strange's CatchPhrase, "Check," pops up a couple of times before the finale, alluding to his nature as TheChessmaster who's been manoeuvring ''everyone'', with his final, understated BadassBoast being "Check. Check and Mate."
** And then there are the repeated references to how Harry can either be a bright and shining MessianicArchetype or a terrifying DarkMessiah based on his choices.

* ''Anime/MaiHime'' has "princess" in the prequel story, "[[http://www.shiznat.webs.com/natsukinopreludeeng.htm Natsuki's Prelude]]". Natsuki, [[MeaningfulName whose name is "Summer Princess" written in hiragana]], frequently hears herself being referred to as such, but it takes her a while to realize the significance of it- she's a [=HiME=], a girl with the ability to summon an Element and a [[{{Mon}} Child]], the acronym of which is derived from the Japanese word for princess.

** "Bring us the girl, and wipe away the debt", with the girl in question being Elizabeth. [[spoiler:It takes on a completely new meaning by the end.]]
** "The seed of the Prophet shall sit the throne, and drown in flame the mountains of man."

to:

** "Bring us the girl, and wipe away the debt", with the girl in question being Elizabeth. [[spoiler:It takes on a completely new meaning by the end.end- Booker wasn't trying to rescue Elizabeth to erase his debts- he sold his daughter Anna (who was raised as Elizabeth) to pay them off.]]
** "The seed of the Prophet shall sit the throne, and drown in flame the mountains of man."" [[spoiler:This actually happens in a BadFuture in which Elizabeth succumbs to despair, takes up Comstock's mantle and uses Columbia to lay waste to the world below]].



** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'': "I am a {{Shadow|Archetype}}... the true self" and "[[ShutUpHannibal You're]] [[OneWingedAngel not]] [[BerserkButton me!]]".

to:

*** "[[PlayableEpilogue The Answer]]" sees a great deal of use in the section of the same name, particularly in "the answer to life." This makes a great deal of sense in that a large part of the story involves finding out why [[spoiler:the protagonist]] died.
** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'': 4}}'':
***
"I am a {{Shadow|Archetype}}... the true self" self"
*** The Shadows of various party members often say "You're me,
and I am you." While the party members, unable to accept the most shameful parts of their personalities (as well as ones they may not be aware of) respond with "[[ShutUpHannibal You're]] [[OneWingedAngel not]] [[BerserkButton me!]]".me!]]", they [[spoiler:except for Mitsuo]] ultimately repeat the Shadows' lines to them, accepting their Shadow and gaining a Persona in the process.
*** Teddie's character arc often references the idea of a "promise." He makes you and Yosuke promise to find whoever has been throwing people inside the TV, and promises to stay and play with Nanako after the culprit has seemingly been caught, [[spoiler:which causes him no small amount of anguish when Nanako seemingly dies in December]].
