** Caesar for season five. Prior to the premiere, they ''heavily'' hyped him up with bits and pieces of information. When it airs, the hype grows as questions are asked: why is he on the plane? Why does he seem to already know about the Island? Why is hiding a gun and other items from what appears to be his lancer, Ilana (who comparatively seems boring, just some bounty hunter who escorted Sayid onto the plane)? What is his agenda? Surely he'll be a important player in the show's endgame...then he dies in the middle of a episode. He's never mentioned again, while his lancer turns out to be a important character with a personal link to Jacob and a promotion to regular for the final season

* The second season finale of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': [[spoiler:After spending an entire season giving Zuko every reason to do a HeelFaceTurn, he makes the choice to stay loyal to his father instead.]] This was then doubly subverted [[spoiler:because he ''does'' do a HeelFaceTurn later.]]

** All throughout the second half of the series, [[BigBad Zeref]] anticipates that [[TheHero Natsu]] is the only person in the world capable of killing him. [[spoiler:Indeed, Natsu is revealed to be a former human reborn as an Etherious, demons created by Zeref for this very purpose. However, Natsu's only opportunity to kill Zeref is wasted midway through the final story arc, and while he does defeat Zeref in battle, it's ultimately Zeref's ex-lover Mavis who kills him as an ActOfTrueLove via their shared InstantDeathRadius.]]

** The Dragon King Festival is set up as a major event that is implied to happen on the anniversary of Igneel and the other dragons disappearance, which is also when they prepare to make their return. When the awaited event occurs, it turns out to be a BigBadWannabe's attempt to recreate a similar historic event, and none of the dragons are anywhere to be seen [[spoiler:except a few random ones brought over from the past through the Eclipse Gate. However, it's justified as the dragons were waiting for Acnologia, who never showed up, and they all reappear in the next major arc.

** One example is played straight in the manga, but averted in the anime. Early on, Lucy worries that Eisenwald's leader, Erigor, may one day come back for revenge. His return is even foreshadowed right before Fairy Tail's fight with the Oracion Seis. Although Hiro Mashima planned for him to return in the initial draft, this the last that's ever spoken of him in the manga, as he was written out of the next draft. The anime, however, ''does'' feature his return in that very arc.
** After getting her butt whooped by Erza's Nakagami Armor in the Grand Magic Games, Minerva reveals she has found a countermeasure for Erza's armor and promises an epic showdown with her rival. The closest they get to this is a fight Erza has absolutely zero interest in, and Minerva's countermeasure is never revealed.

*** This is apparently due to RealLifeWritesThePlot; Team Plasma had been planned to debut early in ''BW'', but the March 2011 earthquake in Japan caused those episodes to be shelved. What info exists on those episodes implies that N was planned to be the king of Team Plasma, like in the games. Instead, Team Plasma debuts much later, with their BW2 designs, while N has already split from them long before meeting Ash.

* In ''VideoGame/PaperMario64'', some time after Chapter 1, if Mario checks his mail, he will find a letter from the Koopa Bros. (the bosses of Chapter 1) vowing to return to get their revenge on him. Sure enough, they do indeed make their return during the final chapter, ready to make good on their treat... [[spoiler:[[BaitAndSwitchBoss only to get their asses thoroughly kicked by]] [[PlotIrrelevantVillain Jr. Troopa]].]]

* This ended up happening to Orihime Inoue in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. At the start of the series, her main power seems to be healing people, along with creating defensive shields. Partway through the Arrancar Saga, she's kidnapped by people working for the BigBad, Aizen. Aizen tells her that her powers go far beyond what they seemed. Her real power is to flat out reject reality. If she wants, she can alter objects or restore them to a previous state. He demonstrates this by having her repair Grimmjow's missing arm, something that he claims can't be done with regular healing. Orihime develops a plan to use her ability to unmake the Hogyoku, a mystical object essential to Aizen's plans. Later on, Ulquiorra implies that Aizen has done something to modify Orihime. Ultimately, [[spoiler: Orihime gets left behind in Hueco Mundo while Ichigo goes to confront Aizen, whom he manages to beat with a new power that leaves Aizen completely helpless, and causes him to be rejected by the Hogyoku. The possibility of her destroying it isn't brought up again, and Ulquiorra's words are never explained. In the end, despite all of the build up, she didn't contribute to Aizen's defeat in any way.]]

A big deal is also made during the Arrancar Saga about how Orihime's sole offensive technique is a OneHitKill, but is rendered useless because her gentle nature means she'll always hesitate to use lethal force, thus weakening the attack to the point that almost anyone can block it. At the same time Ulquiorra is built up as far more Orihime's nemesis than Ichigo's, with Ichigo already getting two other major enemies in the arc (Grimmjow and [[BigBad Aizen himself]]). This is seemingly setting up Orihime to find the resolve to fight without holding back (an established theme to the series, something that Ichigo has to go through several times) and defeat Ulquiorra herself. Ultimately, [[spoiler: Orihime gets left behind in Hueco Mundo while Ichigo goes to confront Aizen, whom he manages to beat with a new power that leaves Aizen completely helpless, and causes him to be rejected by the Hogyoku. The possibility of her destroying it isn't brought up again, and Ulquiorra's words are never explained.explained, and Orihime never has an actual fight with him or anyone else. In the end, despite all of the build up, she didn't contribute to Aizen's defeat in any way.]]]]

* ''Manga/MadeInAbyss'' misleadingly implies that "Mitty," Nanachi's pet blob-mutant, is the remnants of Riko's mother Lyza. It's established that the Curse of the Abyss often turns people into unidentifiable "hollows" of their former selves, like Mitty, and Lyza was last seen heading to the region of the Abyss with this nasty side effect. Mitty seems oddly attached to Riko, and during a scene where Reg [[AmnesiacHero tries to remember]] what happened to Lyza, the camera keeps jumping to Mitty at ominously-framed angles. "Mitty" sounds like a nickname, and Nanachi is evasive about her backstory. [[spoiler:It turns out Mitty was an unrelated girl of Riko's age; she was Nanachi's best (and only) friend, but they failed to save her from the machinations of a MadScientist that changed her, and Nanachi, into her current unfortunate form.]]
