* A minor example in ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'': after ''The Story of Tonight - Reprise'', Hamilton and Laurens serve in the Continental Army, but Lafayette and Mulligan are [[Main/PutOnABus put on their respective buses]] back to France and New York. They eventually both return as Chekov's Gunmen: Lafayette in ''Guns and Ships'' with the titular guns and ships - a gift from France that he had returned to France to get - and Mulligan in ''Yorktown'', when it's revealed that he was using his apprenticeship to act as a spy for the Continental Army. Neither is exactly subtle about their nature as a Gunman, as their returns are both heralded by [[Main/LargeHam the chorus shouting their names]].
** Additionally, James Madison is briefly mentioned in ''Non-Stop'' as one of the co-authors of the Federalist Papers, alongside John Jay and Hamilton. He returns as one of Act 2's [[Main/BigBad Big Bads]] alongside Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr.
** Most of the characters are, in a sense. All the main characters, except for King George III, are present in ''Alexander Hamilton'', serving as the song's omniscient narrators as well as introducing who they are in relation to Hamilton. While Burr, Laurens, Lafayette, and Mulligan are re-introduced in the very next song in ''Aaron Burr, Sir'', Angelica, Eliza, and Peggy take another 4 songs to appear in ''The Schuyler Sisters'' (and take another 4 songs to actually become relevant to the plot in ''A Winter's Ball''), George Washington takes 7, in ''Right Hand Man'', and Madison, Jefferson, Maria Reynolds, and Phillip Hamilton don't appear until the next act (Jefferson and Madison in ''What'd I Miss'', Phillip in ''Take A Break'', although he is portrayed by a different actor until ''The Reynold's Pamphlet'', and Maria in ''Say No To This''). Burr is quite literally Chekov's Gunman, as he introduces himself as "the damned fool who shot him [Hamilton]". This doesn't actually happen until the end of the play (naturally, since you don't expect the main character to die halfway into a show about his own life).

* In ''[[TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering Battle for Zendikar]]'', they mention that only two of the [[EldritchAbomination Eldrazi Titans]] are on the plane that and no one knows where Emrakul went. Come the next block, ''Shadows over Innistrad'' and there some "mysterious" force behind the scenes, twisting the plane to their whim. The only surprising thing about TheReveal [[IKnewIt is that they expected us to be surprised]].
