* ''Series/{{Babylon 5}}'' did this with its TV movie ''In The Beginning''. This prequel covers the apocalyptic events of the Earth-Minbari War ten years before the series. John Sheridan, the star of the series by this point, meets and interacts with many pivotal members of the cast. He goes on a peace mission with Dr. Franklin and G'Kar, and is interrogated by Delenn when the Minbari take them all prisoner. However, when Sheridan was introduced in Season 2, only Ivanova mentions having met him before-- ironically, ''after'' the war was over and therefore not on camera for this movie. Bruce Boxleiter was the show's star, and it was unthinkable that a TV movie would place him in a supporting role. Showrunner JMS argued to fans that any reminiscences about the events in the movie must have happened off camera on the series.

* In the ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' case "Rise from the Ashes" (inserted at the end of the first game when it was updated from the Gameboy to the DS), Gumshoe gives Edgeworth a menu from a French restaurant that's just opened. You have to squint a little, since the picture is tiny, but the man on the menu is Jean Armstrong. Armstrong and his French restaurant don't show up until the third game. Then again, in Japan, they've got the first four cases of the first game, and the two other games as the ''Gyakuten Saiban'' trilogy for the GBA. The fifth case was added in the DS remake, which came later, hence his apparition. It introduced a DubInducedPlotHole in the French version, which tried to make Jean Armstrong sound less French, for [[KeepItForeign obvious reasons]]. He was made Libanese in this cameo, but Italian in the third game, when translated there.

* The elephants from Disney's ''Disney/TheJungleBook'' actually all made their first appearances in the 1960 animated short ''Disney/GoliathII''. The designs for the short's titular character and his father Goliath I were even recycled for those of Hathi Jr. and his father Colonel Hathi, as well as the scene where the elephants actually all [[HumanTrafficJam pile up on top of one another.]]
* The circus locomotive from ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}'' actually first appeared in the Disney animated short ''Film/TheReluctantDragon'', where he is portrayed as pulling a passenger train (as opposed to a circus train) only to end up in a railway accident while attempting to jump a broken bridge during a thunderstorm. His ''Reluctant Dragon'' incarnation looked slightly different than the one in ''Dumbo'': his drive rods are connected to the forward drive wheels, he was longer in appearance, and there was a bell on his roof. However in ''Dumbo'', his drive rods are now connected to his hind drive wheels, he is now shorter and stockier in appearance, and his bell is nowhere to be seen, implying that he was actually overhauled during his repair between the two films. Disney/{{Bambi}} also made his debut there, even though his ''official'' debut didn't even happen until the year after.
* Creator/{{Pixar}} started doing this in ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'' Every Pixar feature since has featured a Sneak Peek.
* In ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'', we see Boo holding Jessie (''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2''), the ball from ''WesternAnimation/LuxoJr'' and... [[WesternAnimation/FindingNemo Nemo]], who only debuted 2 years later. Nemo also appears as a fresco in the sushi restaurant.
** In ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'', a kid can be seen reading a comic book of ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles''.
** In ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', [[WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} Doc Hudson]] appears as a non-anthropomorphic car during the final fight sequence,
** Dug the dog from ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'' makes an early appearance as a live shadow on a wall in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}''.
** In a [[WesternAnimation/PixarShorts DVD bonus short]] for ''WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}'', WesternAnimation/WallE makes a brief cameo as a Mars rover operator. Parodied on WALL•E's website, which shows him hiding in ''every single past Pixar movie''.
*** There's a similar gag documentary on the ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' DVD -- apparently Stitch has been attempting to get a Disney movie since ''[[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs 1937]]''. The documentary shows screenshots from films with Stitch drawn in them.
** ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'': When Carl's balloon-house goes past a little girl's bedroom, a teddy bear is in the far left corner of the screen. This is Lotso(-Huggin' Bear), who is an important character in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3''.
** In ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'', one of the posters in Andy's room shows Finn [=McMissile=] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} 2''. Additionally, he has a "Newt Crossing" sticker next to his computer; ''Newt'' was a Pixar film that was cancelled in development.
** ''WesternAnimation/Cars2'' has car-versions of [[WesternAnimation/{{Brave}} Princess Merida]] and her family on a glass window in the British pub.
** ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'': There is a bas-relief of Sully in the Witch's hut, for ''Monsters University''. [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120703140123/pixar/images/thumb/f/fc/B175_33cs.sel16.121.jpg/1000px-B175_33cs.sel16.121.jpg View it here.]]

* At the very beginning of ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'', you can actually see two books in the background entitled ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' and ''Disney/PeterPan'', respectively.
* "Kid" from ''Anime/TheAnimatrix'' 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.
* Margo, the oldest of the three orphan girls from ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'', wears a [[Literature/TheLorax Lorax]] T-shirt in the first movie; [[WesternAnimation/TheLorax a movie version]] from [[Creator/IlluminationEntertainment the same producers]] premiered two years later. In the third movie, her shirt features [[Literature/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas The Grinch]] on it.
* An early bird cameo for a movie line: Music/GeorgeHarrison's line in ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'' "It's all in the mind" was first said by Music/JohnLennon on Music/TheBeatles' [[WesternAnimation/TheBeatles cartoon show]] episode "Strawberry Fields Forever." (John delivered it as "It's all in the mind, y'know" which was said by George fully in a restored scene in ''Submarine''.)

* Sort of inverse to the above example — part of Major Lazer's song “Powerful” played in the background of the ''WesternAnimation/MajorLazer'' episode "Vampire Weekend" nearly 8 months before the full track was officially released on an album.

** ''Metal Gear: Ghost Babel'', which was released a year before ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'', featured an extra game mode where the player controls a newly recruited soldier who undergoes VR training by having to complete harder versions of Solid Snake's missions in the main game. The name of this agent is revealed at the end to be "Jack", the same name of the protagonist in ''[=MGS2=]''.
** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid: [[MissionPackSequel VR Missions]]'' featured a hidden concept art of Metal Gear Ray from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2''.
** Cyborg Ninja Raiden played a cameo role in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2: Substance''. However, it's not the same Cyborg Ninja suit Raiden wears in ''Guns of the Patriots'', but more of a cosplay of him in Gray Fox's exoskeleton suit from the first ''MGS''.

** ''Metal Gear: Ghost Babel'', ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'' got two of these. ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid: [[MissionPackSequel VR Missions]]'', if the player completed every single one of the VR missions, gave a sneak preview of Metal Gear RAY.

** Chronologically, ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' is set before ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII'' Yun and Yang appear in Chun Li's opening story sequence in the console version. They later appeared as playable characters in the arcade version of ''Super Street Fighter IV''.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman''[='=]s second episode [[Recap/TheBatmanS1E2Traction "Traction"]] features a flashback to the night Bruce's parents died, with a young red-headed and mustachioed police officer informing Bruce that Alfred's there to pick him up. [[http://www.toonzone.net/forums/showpost.php?p=1902711&postcount=58 According to]] [[WordOfGod producer Jeff Matsuda]], this was indeed supposed to be a young Jim Gordon, who would properly debut in the Season 2 finale, [[Recap/TheBatmanS2E13NightAndTheCity "Night and the City"]] with a side of RememberTheNewGuy as dialogue by Alfred and Gordon himself suggested Batman was already in an alliance with the recently-appointed Commissioner despite only appeared in said flashback beforehand. Also, Matsuda denied that the flashback was done as a tie-in to ''Film/BatmanBegins'', which started a trend (including being {{Ret Canon}}ed in the comics, as well as the ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'' and ''Series/{{Gotham}}'') of having the future Batman and future GCPD Commissioner meet the night the Waynes' died.

** In ''Film/IronMan2'', there's a very subtle reference to the ComicBook/BlackPanther (or more likely, his father, the previous Black Panther). When ComicBook/NickFury shows Tony the map of superhuman activity across the globe, [[FreezeFrameBonus one of the markers can be seen over Africa]].

* 'The lame girl with the spirit of the ''squirrel'' ' was a throwaway line in some early WhateleyUniverse stories. Then she was a weak character in some of the Phase stories, where she was in Phase's aikido class and gained the name Aquerna. Now she's had a vignette, a novel, a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, a CrowningMomentOfFunny, and a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
