* In the ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' episode "Total Rickall", the Smiths are sealed in their house with parasites that {{shapeshift|ing}} into bizarre cartoon characters and try to get close to them by rewriting their memories. Their weakness is that they can only create good memories; also in the episode is Rick's friend Mr. Poopy Butthole, who looks like one of the parasite characters, but flashes back to a negative incident with him and the Smiths stuck in an elevator, which foreshadows that he's real, and he's actually injured when Beth shoots him at the end.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'':
** In "The Mystery", as Ms. Simian closes the door on all the suspects, the camera hangs on the door's window, through which Bobert can be seen standing on the stairs. We later finds out he was turned off and had caught what actually happened to Brown on video.
** In "The Genius", as Principal Brown explains to the family why Darwin was taken away, Anais can be seen darting her eyes away several times. It turns out that Anais was the one who actually wrote the test that got Darwin sent away, though this one was something of a CaptainObviousReveal in light of the characters, though.
** In "The Remote", if you [[FreezeFrameBonus pause at just the right moment]], you can see that the "remote" Anais smashes is actually a calculator, before it's actually revealed that she was faking.
** In "The Storm", Masami's comment on Alan and Carmen's relationship is a fate that could really only apply to Carmen, hinting that she actually likes Alan.
** The title of "The Nobody". If "The Pony" is anything to go by, [[spoiler:[[TheNondescript Rob fits the definition of "nobody" far better than anyone else in Elmore.]]]]
*** In the same episode, as Gumball investigates the fridge, the title card from "The Void" plays. [[spoiler:The titular nobody turns out to be Rob, who has escaped from the Void.]]
** In "The Bus", Principal Brown gets some mysterious texts that seem to tell him what to do. We don't find out who is texting until near the end:
-->'''Principal Brown''': ''*reading a text*'' "Stick to the pan or everyone dines?"\\
[[spoiler:'''Rob''': [[WhamLine Darn autocorrect... this stupid thing never works.]]]]

** In the episode "Fionna and Cake" [[spoiler:which turned out to be a FanFic written by The Ice King]] Fionna tells Cake to take off the Ice Queen's crown to "not catch her crazy". In the second part of "Holly Jolly Secrets" is revealed that the Ice King [[spoiler:used to be a human antiquarian called Simon Petrikov who found the crown, which eventually made him lose his sanity.]]

*** In the same episode, the Ice Queen is shown to be a much more competent villain than her main-universe counterpart. This seems like just a case of WomenAreWiser, but is actually foreshadowing that [[spoiler:the whole episode was a story written by The Ice King.

** When Ralph first enters the palace, he remarks to King Candy that [[spoiler: it is oddly pink for a male character. Turns out the palace originally belongs to Princess Vallellope.]]

** Very subtle, but in "Love Is An Open Door" Hans sings, "I've been searching my whole life to find my own place!" [[spoiler: Guess what Hans really wanted.]]
** Another subtle hint that [[spoiler: Hans is playing with Anna's feelings and is just leading her on, particularly when Hans sings the line about the two of them finishing each other's - only for Anna to jump in to say "sandwiches," followed by Hans's "That's what I was gonna say!" showing that he's tailoring his acting to draw her in.]]
** The very first song in the movie, "Frozen Heart" forshadows the plot, singing about how powerful, beautiful and deadly ice is. Along with it's title [[spoiler: foreshadowing the dangers of Anna's frozen heart]]. The best part foreshadowing though? During the song, the men chant the words "Let it Go".

to:

** Very subtle, but in "Love Is An ''Love is an Open Door" Door'' is stuffed full of it. The first one is this: [[spoiler: at the beginning, Hans sings, "I've says that he's been searching my his whole life to find my "find his own place!" [[spoiler: Guess place", while gesturing towards Arendelle. It turns out that Arendelle, not Anna, was what Hans really he wanted.]]
** Another subtle hint that [[spoiler: Hans is playing with Anna's feelings and is just leading her on, particularly when Hans sings the line about the two of them finishing each other's - only for Anna to jump in to say "sandwiches," followed by Hans's "That's what I was gonna say!" showing that he's tailoring his acting to draw her in.

*** Another subtle hint that [[spoiler: Hans is playing with Anna's feelings and is just leading her on is Han's line about the two of them finishing each other's - only for Anna to jump in to say "sandwiches," followed by Hans's "That's what I was gonna say!" showing that he's tailoring his acting to draw her in.]]
*** Also from that song is that when Anna and Hans sing the line "Our mental synchronization/can have but one explanation" [[spoiler: they dance robotically, showing that Hans at least was just going through the motions.]]
*** [[spoiler: The way the line "You and I were just meant to be" is sung foreshadows that Hans and Anna ''weren't'' meant to be. Hans sings the "you", and Anna sings the "I", meaning that both of them were referring to Anna, and Hans was not mentioned at all.]]
*** Throughout the song, [[spoiler: Hans and Anna are not quite in sync and have little scenes showcasing this, foreshadowing how their relationship was not perfect after all.]]
** The very first song in the movie, "Frozen Heart" forshadows the plot, singing about how powerful, beautiful and deadly ice is. Along with it's its title [[spoiler: foreshadowing the dangers of Anna's frozen heart]]. The best part foreshadowing though? During the song, the men chant the words "Let it Go".

*** Her favorite thing about Rose was her Grew Beyond Their Programming philosophy, not her compassion - the latter of which almost ''everyone'' describes as her most prominent attribute.

*** While watching one of the Lonely Blade movies, Bismuth questions why the hero is hesitant to use an Artifact of Doom despite it clearly being a devastating weapon, hinting that she [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans believes the ends justify the means.]]

Added DiffLines:

** "Bismuth": There's a ''lot'' of hints beforehand that the eponymous gem is not as benevolent as she seems:
*** The fact that the first time we see her, she's seen [[KickTheDog punching Lapis]] to the point that her physical form disappears - Lapis, for instance, has a rather thin build, wasn't a soldier, and looks generally unthreatening. Knowing that the first time we saw a character is a KickTheDog moment makes some of the {{Friendship Moment}}s between her and the other gems feel a bit... ''off''.
*** Steven says he's done a terrible thing when he breaks the bubble on Bismuth's gem. He has no idea how right he is.
*** Steven mentions that Bismuth is the first Gem he's met who hasn't tried to kill him.
*** Bismuth's TrueColors are foreshadowed by how, out of all the main Crystal Gems, she's the only one who welcomes Homeworld's return as a chance to do more damage to them. And possibly, by extension
*** While watching one of the Lonely Blade movies, Bismuth questions why the hero is hesitant to use an Artifact of Doom despite it clearly being a devastating weapon, hinting that she [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans believes the ends justify the means.]]
*** Her favorite thing about Rose was her Grew Beyond Their Programming philosophy, not her compassion - the latter of which almost ''everyone'' describes as her most prominent attribute.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' does this. A lot. Often through the slyest of references and asides. And then in the finale, pretty every single one of the ''many'' {{Chekhovs Gun}}s fires at once. It is possibly for this reason that the finale covers four chapters - and that's not counting the two chapter epilogue.
