* From the way he was behaving in ''Film/{{Spotlight}}'', Ben Bradlee Jr. looked like the guilty party who sat on the discarded evidence at the ''Boston Globe'' and was trying to cover it up. Turns out it was Robinson who dropped the ball on the story when it was brought up to him in 1993.

** There's another example earlier in the series; there are hints that Batman might join forces with Project Cadmus. As it turns out, [[AuthorsSavingThrow Cadmus was more of an authoritarian power-grab than it first seemed,]] so the foreshadowing comes to nothing: Batman stays in the League.

* A long running subplot in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' involved Applebloom, Sweetie Bell and Scootaloo trying to find their cutie marks, symbols that represent their special talent. The episode "The Show Stoppers" drops hints as to what their talents are. Applebloom is shown to be a skilled designer, Sweetie Bell has an excellent singing voice, and Scootaloo is a talented dancer. Four seasons later, [[spoiler: the episode "Crusaders of the Lost Mark" has them gain their cutie marks when they realize that their real talent is helping other ponies figure out their special talent.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', Red XIII's tattoo puts him in the same category as the Clones, which all have number tattoos. He's given a scene where he worries to Tifa that the fact that he was experimented on by Hojo means he might go mad and get possessed by Sephiroth. Red XIII's medical history or mental state is never mentioned again in the rest of the game. Early in Disc 2, there ''is'' a scene where Red XIII is manipulated by Sephiroth into giving Cloud the Black Materia for [[IdiotBall flimsy reasons]]... but Barret, who was never experimented on, will do the exact same thing if the player gives him the Black Materia instead.

* ''Film/LeavingLasVegas'' seems to be setting the viewer up for a thriller plot or subplot, with its early chance encounters between Ben. the mobsters, and Yuri, with exposition on the latter's increasingly desperate circumstances. But then he's killed, offscreen, and that's that.

** ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'' had the foreshadowing-that-wasn't of [[spoiler:Vita's death]].

* In ''Wicked'', there's a brief scene when Madame Morrible meets up with Elphaba during a rainstorm, at one point saying, "You mustn't get wet." Elphaba is not seen in contact with water throughout the show. [[spoiler: It's just a RedHerring, Elphaba isn't actually allergic to water in this version.]]

* At the beginning of ''AceAttorneyInvestigations'', a shadowy figure holds up Edgeworth in his office. [[spoiler: We can't hear the voice, obviously, and Edgeworth only refers to them as 'that person', leaving open the possibility that the mysterious person might not even have been a man despite the masculine silhouette. It turns out to be Detective Badd.]]

* In ''Hero of Ages'', the third book of ''{{Mistborn}}'', a character, [[spoiler: Marsh]] is under mind-control from [[spoiler: BigBad Ruin]]. He has enough HeroicWillpower to resist ''once'', and his thoughts in his POV sections make it clear he intends to use this to kill himself at a key point, depriving [[spoiler: Ruin]] of his services. [[spoiler: Nope- he uses it to rip out [[ActionGirl Vin's]] earring- revealed as a kind of minor ArtifactOfDoom- thereby allowing her to break free of its influence and ascend to a PhysicalGod type state, where she can face Ruin directly. Marsh is one of the only POV characters to ''survive'' the entire series]].
* In ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'', prophecy is commonly used as a tool for {{Foreshadowing}}; [[TheMagicComesBack Talents thought extinct or dying are resurging]], several of which allow insights into the future, with varying accuracy and clarity. There are characters who mostly just crank out one serious-sounding prophecy after another; however, most prophecies are quite diluted in importance as a result[[note]]There is only so much drama one can fit into a person's life![[/note]], and there is no telling which prophecies are important or even fulfilled during the timespan of the series.
