* In one ''Series/BurnNotice'' episode, Michael gets a phone call from Sam that another character was killed by a bomb attached to his front door, one second before he opens the door to his own house (which is also rigged to explode). This gives him just enough time to jump off his stairway (his front door is a dozen or so feet off the ground and he needs to climb a metal stairway to get there) and away from the explosion. He doesn't escape completely unscathed though; some of the fire manages to sing him, and he would have died impacting with the concrete ground if he hadn't hit his car first, which still had the effect of knocking him out and leaving him clearly disoriented and barely able to stand and walk without Sam's help when he wakes up.

Fiona herself observes the damage later and notes that if Michael had opened the door any wider he'd be in bitty pieces regardless.

* A case of this and InterfaceSpoiler. ''Film/KongSkullIsland'''s closing credits spoil TheStinger by crediting Creator/{{Toho}} as the owners of Godzilla, [[spoiler:Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah]], who show up in said stinger.

* In the ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'' games, a OneWomanWail plays in the background whenever a corpse is discovered. In ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'', the absence of that when [[spoiler:Kokichi]]'s corpse shows up ([[spoiler:the first time, anyway]]) is a tell that he isn't actually dead.

* In NieR, the main character comments on how the village's librarian (and functionally the city's mayor), Popola, hasn't aged a day in all the years he's known her, and she just brushes it off as a cheeky compliment. [[spoiler: It is eventually revealed that she reason she and her sister Devola haven't aged is because they're actually [[RobotGirl gynoids]] programmed to serve [[BigBad the Shadowlord]], and they've been manipulating you the whole time.]]

** In "Steven's Dream", Steven has a dream of giant palanquin, belonging to one of the Diamond, so he and Greg go to Korea to find it. [[spoiler: When they do, they find Blue Diamond's palanquin, except it's in perfect condition, while the one Steven dreamed of was in disrepair. Just behind some bushes was Pink Diamond's palanquin... and Blue Diamond.]]
