[[spoiler: Benji eventually dies from his injuries as a result of this...or so he claims.

* In one 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.]]

** At one point, Ishigami says that all of the sports teams should get reduced budgets based on how many of the players have girlfriends, shouting that if they had girlfriends it should be more important to them than sports. It comes off as him being jealous due to being disliked by his female classmates, until it's revealed that [[spoiler:the reason all the girls hate him is because he was accused of being a StalkerWithACrush when he attacked a guy that was cheating on his girlfriend.]]

** At the start of ''Film/{{Thor}}, Odin banished Thor and stripped him of his power after Thor nearly started a war. ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' shows that Odin [[spoiler:had to imprison Hela after she grew out of control in her desire for conquest, meaning now OOdin banishing Thor had more to do with stopping Thor from becoming a monster like Hela was than merely trying to teach humility.]]

** Hodor has consistently been portrayed as a hulking simpleton with childlike intelligence, and his GentleGiant persona has always been used for comic relief--as has his [[PokemonSpeak inability to say anything but his own name]]. The books and the TV show had long cryptically hinted that there was ''something'' more to Hodor than the Starks suspected, with the eventual revelation that his birth name was actually "Walder" ([[AdaptationNameChange "Wylis" in the show]]). Then come the events of the WhamEpisode "The Door". It turns out that Hodor was once of perfectly normal intelligence, but suffered a massive seizure when [[spoiler: Bran [[MentalTimeTravel seized control of his younger self's mind]], inadvertently splitting his mind between two time periods]]. He can only say the word "Hodor" because [[spoiler: he heard Meera Reed shouting ''"Hold the door!"'' when he glimpsed into the future]].
** Jaqen H'ghar isn't exactly a comic relief character, but his odd speaking style initially comes off as a simple FunnyForeigner schtick. In particular, he doesn't seem to know how to use pronouns, [[VerbalTic consistently referring to himself as "a man" (never "I" or "me") and addressing Arya as "a girl" (never "you")]]. But as we delve further into the philosophy and worldview of the Faceless Men, we learn that there's a genuinely chilling reason that Jaqen talks like that: the Faceless Men believe in [[LossOfIdentity rejecting their sense of self]] so that they can better serve the organization, and they're expected to [[ThatManIsDead shed their old identities]] so that they can [[MasterOfDisguise adopt new ones]]. As a veteran Faceless Man, he's so detached from his own identity that he genuinely just sees himself as "a man".

Plus, "Jaqen H'ghar" is apparently a shared persona used by other Faceless Men too, so he's really ''not'' "Jaqen H'ghar", but just "a man" or "no one".
