* ''ComicBook/{{Nextwave}}'' was insanely violent and nonsensical, utterly hilarious, and completely non-canon. And then in ''ComicBook/{{Mighty Avengers}}'', [[Comicbook/MonicaRambeau Spectrum]] finds out that the villains of Nextwave, the Beyond Corporation, are back. She goes off on a quiet, angry rant about the impossible things she faced, being forced to kill, being changed by the Corporation, and nobody ever believing any of it really happened, even thinking it was a joke. Then she flashes into her Nextwave outfit.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' episode "One of the Boys," when Lincoln accidently went to the dimension where he was a grl, most of "her" brothers look incredibly worried about her. In that episode, there's no explanation given for it, and it's mostly Played for Laughs. This fic, however, takes the idea and gives it a rather sinister reasoning [[spoiler: A trio of ruffians broke into the house while the family was away and badly beat up Linka, with Lane and Lars only managing to survive thanks to hiding in a closet.]] Ever since then, Lynn Sr. conditioned his sons to treat their daughter with utmost respect and act like she is the most important person in the world.

* Anime/YugiohArcV: Early on, the series poked fun at Yuya's mom habit of taking strays animals into their house, first by Yuya realizing one morning there are more pets whose names he doesn't even know, then after [[ImTakingHimHomeWithMe taking Sora in]] and him telling her that he can't just pick people up the same way as animals, it's all played for laughs both at Yoko's weakness [[CutenessProximity for cuteness]] and [[DeliberatelyCuteChild Sora's antics]] in order to get what he wants, [[spoiler: Fast forward to episode 127 where it's revealed that Yuya's existance is due to him being the [[SealedInsideaPersonShapedCan fragment of Zarc's split soul]] and most definitely not Yusho's nor Yoko's biological son since the former realizes he has no memories of his son being born, meaning Yoko might have picked Yuya up long, ''long'' before Sora.]]

* In once chapter of ''Manga/KaguyaSamaWaKokurasetai'', Kaguya is shown looking for fireworks in her bedroom while delirious from a fever, and in a later chapter is shown to go starry eyed when the possibility of going to a fireworks festival with [[LoveInterest Shirogane]] comes up. At first, this just seems like a fun little quirk, but then we get to chapter 44 and find out that [[spoiler:fireworks represent the summer memories that she's never had due to her overbearing and emotionally neglectful father.]]

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'': Ed's short stature gets used for comical characterisation for most of the series. Then [[spoiler:it turns out he hasn't grown since the disastrous ritual because Al's body on the other side of the Gate is drawing nourishment from him to survive]]. It's still played for comedy even after this reveal because his rants are so fricken hilarious. This doesn't apply to the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime]], where Ed is just naturally short.
* ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka'' does this gradually. During one of his later admissions to the hospital, the eponymous character gets what looks like a serious nosebleed [[EroNosebleed until everyone comes to the conclusion that it was only because he was turned on by the nurses' uniforms and got a peek under their skirts after "pretending" to fall down.]] Later in the same chapter, a panel suggests that the nosebleed actually is as serious as it first appeared. In the final story arc, [[spoiler:the audience learns that Onizuka has had chronic internal bleeding and cerebral aneurysms in the head for quite sometime, which shines a different light on some of the nosebleed gags throughout ''Great Teacher Onizuka'' as well as the various head injuries, comedic or serious, he has gained throughout not just this series, but it's predacessor, ''Shonan Junai Gumi''.]]

** Also in Season 1, everytime Coulson was asked about Tahiti, the place he recovered after being wounded by Loki in Film/TheAvengers2012, he'd always say "It's a magical place," until even he started noticing it. It's after he goes through a memory machine that he realizes the awful truth: that he truly did die and that he was brought back to life against his will.

* Back in season 1 of ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'', there involves a scene where Joey is trying to "teach" Serenity how to drive. In Episode 54, however, it turns out said incident was actually the cause of Noah's "[[InsistentTerminology untimely death]]".

** Several of those early strips involved an outlandishly panicked coward very nearly dying horribly due to mishap caused by the carelessness of the other goblins, the joke being that the outlandishly panicked coward was, in fact, named [[CruelAndUnusualDeath "Dies Horribly"]]. Dies went on to become a semi-regular character and was the one to make the above-spoilered reveal to Saves-a-Fox. When he does this, he is ''also'' stating and quite clearly that this joke was ''never'' a joke and that Dies Horribly ''is'' going to die. '''Horribly.''' [[spoiler:He actually does horribly, but it's not as big of a deal as it would seem since he [[BackFromTheDead came back]].]]

** A straighter example was done with the mother of the Black Dragon from the Starmetal cave, who was mentioned lightheartedly several times during the encounter in which [[spoiler:Vaarsuvius disintegrated her son in a scene that was still more or less played for laughs. About three hundred strips later, she appears out of the blue seeking vengeance on Vaarsuvius. This leads to one of the darkest arcs the strip has done thus far and the start of an horrific CycleOfRevenge.]]

* When Samuel Shaw's stalker angle began in Wrestling/{{TNA}}, he was an independent man with his own apartment who jealously attacked anyone he thought was trying to "take" Wrestling/ChristyHemme's attention away from him.
