* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': In the pilot, the three main characters are wondering if titans will ever break through the walls to the city again. Armin says, "Just because it hasn't happened in 100 years, doesn't mean it won't happen today," and in mere seconds the air calms, all background noises cease, a flash of lightning sends a shockwave over the city, and standing outside the wall is a titan taller than they've ever seen. It kicks through the wall.

* ''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.]]

* Before the violence begins in ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'', Jeremiah Fink refers to a woman working at the Raffle and Fair as "the prettiest young white girl in all of Columbia". The fact that he mentioned her being white foreshadows the city's jingoistic racism, which is made evident when the raffle prize is revealed: you get to [[spoiler:have the first throw at the stoning of an interracial couple]].

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Zootopia}}'': [[spoiler: After Nick is shot with a PsychoSerum that causes those injected with it to "go savage", he doesn't shift into a more feral appearance, unlike the serum's previous victims. Sure enough, he turns out to be faking it just a minute or so later.]]
