* Kaworu Nagisa, who only appears in episode 24 of the ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' TV series, is seen in the first movie of the new Rebuild of Evangelion tetralogy. This may have something to do with him being an EnsembleDarkHorse, though. He also shows up quite a bit earlier in the manga adaptation, and in pretty much every AlternateContinuity. Notably, however, he's much more [[GreyAndGrayMorality morally ambiguous]] in the manga.

* In the first episode of ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'', as Sena wonders what club to join, you can see Monta in the background, presumably stumping for the baseball team. Another early episode features Suzuna Taki, who's trying to track down her brother Natsuhiko; she shows up again during the Death March arc, which is where she first appeared in the manga.
* Inverted in ''TokyoMewMew'': Minto, Retasu, Bu-ling and Zakuro appear in the beginning of the manga before passing through the DebutQueue, but are removed from the beginning of the anime.
* Many of the angels that Misaki faces later in ''KidouTenshiAngelicLayer'' appear on a videotape that Icchan is watching early in the anime.

* An episode of ''UruseiYatsura'' featured a story in Feudal Japan with [[AndYouWereThere the cast playing different characters]]. Before the story itself begins, the cast breaks the fourth wall to explain what is happening... when all of a sudden Mendou shows up for the first time. When the others ask who he is, he calmly replies "My name is Shutaro Mendou and I will soon become a regular character on this show". He of course, joins the rest of the cast in the story. Sure enough, Mendou's "actual" introduction occurs a few episodes later without any mention of this. If you're going to do a Genji story, someone has to be To No Chujo (Genji's friend/rival), that's Mendo to a "T", continuity be damned.

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoII'' introduced the ability to change the radio station in your car, as well as having different ones for each district. This could be considered in a way foreshadowing to GTARadio. As another added touch, a gang radio station's reception degrades the further you are from its source in a district.

* "Kid" from ''The Animatrix'' is a cross-medium example. He plays a significant role in the last two movies of The Matrix Trilogy but makes his first appearance in one of the shorts from the animated direct-to-DVD film.
