* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': In "Message Received", Steven locks Peridot in the cab of the barn's pickup truck because she was planning to contact [[BigBad Yellow Diamond]] and (seemingly) betray the Crystal Gems. While Steven and the Gems are discussing what to do with her, you can hear her mashing the truck's horn in the background trying to get out... until near the end of the conversation when she suddenly stops, tipping off the viewers (though not the protagonists) that she's found a way to escape.

Zemo never intended to use them for anything except as bait so he could show Tony [[CartesianKarma that one security tape]].]]

He was explaining why he wasn't impressed with either Davey or O'Reilly's "rational thinking", stating his brother, who was off camera sure as hell wasn't, before nearly shitting himself when a gunshot from Mark shattered a beer bottle behind him, followed by Mark's apologies that he thought Jay was done with it.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': In the pilot, the three main characters are wondering if titans will ever break through the walls to the city again.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', with its reliance on the FreezeFrameBonus, ''loves'' this trope, often setting up {{Brick Joke}}s and {{Chekhovs Gun}}s in this manner. To name a few, in "Not What He Seems", among the MenInBlack's evidence against Stan is a report card, showing all A's except for a D in gym, which is deemed unlikely, [[spoiler: A hint that Stan is in fact impersonating his genius twin brother.]] In "Dipper and Mabel vs the Future", when Blendin' approaches Mabel, he was using his camouflage device properly, when in the past, he was klutzy with it. [[spoiler:A few moments later, it's revealed that Blendin' is possessed by Bill. Of course, audience members probably caught on earlier when Blendin' asked Mabel for the rift she was carrying]]. Finally, in the GrandFinale, [[spoiler: Ford apparently agrees to let Bill into his mind- however, he and Stan have apparently swapped facial features, and "Stan" has six-fingered hands, a sign that this is another TwinSwitch.]]
