Added DiffLines:

* Done for dramatic and tragic effect in ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' a few times.
** In the first game, [[spoiler:Manfred von Karma]] was shot in the right shoulder [[spoiler:just before he murdered Gregory Edgeworth]]. In the second, [[spoiler:his daughter Franziska]] is shot in the right shoulder by [[spoiler:Shelly De Killer]]. By this point, [[spoiler:Franziska]] has gotten over her father, and has pretty much banished his name from the family for being a killer, so her being shot in the exactly the same way he was, right before he killed, is an extremely karmic moment.
** In the third game, Godot prosecutes a case where someone died from a poisoned cup of coffee. Later it's revealed that [[spoiler:he himself almost died, and was knocked into a coma, by this same method.]] The case is full of parallels, such as the fact the defendant is a young woman [[spoiler:just like Dahlia was]], and Godot's mention of how the defendant is a "classy lady" for using coffee to hide the bitterness of poison. It's also, tragically in a rather ironic way, the case where we first see something that came about due to Godot [[spoiler:being poisoned. Namely, that he he can't see red on a white background.]]
*** Speaking of which, that itself falls under this. Godot [[spoiler:is "blind" to red on a white background. Redd White was the man who killed Mia, a death that Godot was trying to hide from, blaming Phoenix when he should have "opened his eyes" and blamed the right person. In other words, his literal inability to see red on white, parallels his inability to see that Redd White was the only one to blame for Mia's death.]]
** This series is ''full'' of these, although a lot of them are inverted to the player and some are subverted due to being pointed out in game. They're always used for tragic effect.
*** An example of a subverted one is in case 3 of the first game. Jack Hammer, an actor, at first was thought to have been stabbed with a spear but [[spoiler:it turns out he died from being pushed of some stairs onto a spiked-fence. 5 years prior, the victim himself (allegedly accidentally) pushed a fellow actor from the same stairs and onto the same spiked fence while filming a scene, killing them. What makes this worse, is that the person who killed Hammer did so in self-defense, when Hammer himself went to get his revenge on them for his treatment after that accident he had caused. Thus it's more then likely that Hammer was accidentally killed in the exact same way and place that he accidentally killed someone himself, due to the fact that he had accidentally killed said previously mentioned someone.]]
* To make a point about perspective in ''VisualNovel/Ever17'', You (which is, incidentally, not a second-person pronoun, but a [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep nickname]] for the character's [[OverlyLongName incredibly long given name]]) has Kid try to put a pen back in its cap with one eye closed, leading to the above scene. This is made all the more amusing by the pair's UnresolvedSexualTension, along with You being a two years older.
** To anyone listening to the conversation but not actually seeing what they're doing, it sounds exactly like a porn movie. You is probably aware of that.
** This trope is exactly what the authors were aiming for in that scene; the things those two say in that scene are right out of a hentai. Which is a bit ironic considering this is one of those visual novels without any actual H scene.
** In a different scene near the beginning of Kid/Coco's route, You attempts to make Kid laugh off his amnesia. If you refuse to do so, she'll resort to... sticking her finger up Sara's nose. Sara proceeds to moan sensually as "she and her senpai become one."


Added DiffLines:

* ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'': Makes Shiki's [[spoiler:killing]] of Arcueid is somewhat... ''questionable''.
-->'''Arcueid:''' It was your first time and you were that skilled?
** Also, during the scene where he stalks her prior to this, he makes several references towards getting excited about "wanting to *** her", and the "long hard object in his pants". After a couple screens of this, it's mentioned that the blanked-out four-letter word is [[spoiler:kill]], and the object he's talking about is his [[spoiler:knife]]. Then after Arcueid has been [[spoiler:kill]]ed by Shiki, she chases him down to "make him take responsibility" for his actions.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Theatre/{{Elisabeth}}'': "Die Schatten werden länger" ("The Shadows Grow Longer") is about Death trying to seduce Rudolf into suicide. In many, ''many'' productions, it's played as Death [[HoYay trying to seduce Rudolf]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebVideo/{{Petscop}}'': In Evencare, there are signs about bringing pets home. Two of them say "When choosing pets, pick somebody that you like. You don't have to love them right away," and "Don't be discouraged if they run from you! They really want a home. They're afraid. Show them there's nothing to be afraid of." There's a pet who's kept in a cage, and is awarded for staying there. Its description is "Amber is a young ball. She's afraid to leave home. If her home is good, this is not a problem. She is very heavy, and that makes her life a little harder, as well as yours. What's the safest place you can put her in? You should start thinking about that." [[{{Foreshadowing}} In hindsight]], the reactive attachment disorder themes were there from the beginning. [[spoiler:And to bring it home, there are three different versions of Care available as pets.]]

* ''Theatre/{{Brand}}'' by Creator/HenrikIbsen has a jarring Christmas scene involving a homeless mother and her child knocking at Brand's door, begging for clothes for her frozen child. The scene plays heavily into the legends of St. Martin and other saints, sharing their clothes with a beggar in the snow, who turns out to be Christ. It also plays in on the Christmas gospel, with the mother Mary seeking shelter and giving birth (at Christmas, of course) to {{Jesus}} himself. To drive the point home, Brand`s own son is dead, and his wife grieves over her dead son. But given the Christmas references, it is impossible ''not'' to share with the paupers. The scene makes an {{anvilicious}} TearJerker, because we know this is breaking Agnes completely.
