* ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Archer}} Archer Vice]]'' ends the first episode of the season with a montage of snippets from every crazy plot point that's going to happen through the season. Apparently it's all being imagined by Archer and it is awesome.

Apparently it's all being imagined by Archer and it is awesome. ALthough only about half the plot points actually appear in the actual season.

* At the beginning of the "Futures Trading" arc of ''WebComic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'', while Doc is caught up in the TimeyWimeyBall, he ends up in a scenario where he's [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/21p05/ injured and trapped in a building, being ordered to surrender or be bombed]]. Doc doesn't recognize the incident, and Chuck Goodrich reveals Doc's gone a little too far ahead in his own timeline before pulling him back in and stabilizing their time-jump. [[spoiler: In "The End, Part 2", while fighting [[PresidentEvil King Radical]] in his Presidential Warehouse, Doc begins to realize [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/33p95/ he's been there before]]. [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/33p126/ Sure enough...]] (though it turns out it's [[DragonAscendant Frans Rayner]] making the threat)]].

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has one from [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004018 here]] to [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004020 here]], showing to readers in advance how Tavros got a pair of robotic legs, weeks after the events shown prior.

* Season 7 of ''Series/TheWestWing'' opens with a Flash Forward of most of the cast in the future, waiting for Bartlet's successor (who we don't see the face of). Leo isn't present at this scene- a FunnyAneurysmMoment in retrospect, as John Spencer died three months later.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Fanfic/MotionPractice'' series, which recasts various Marvel superheroes as lawyers, the story "Judicial Conduct" ends with a flash-forward to a scene several years after the rest of the series, in which Assistant District Attorney Coulson has become a judge.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' version of ''Anime/SuperAndroid13'' does this when Goku gets [[GroinAttack kicked in the dick]] so hard that it flashes forward to the Buu saga and shows [[RetGone Goten getting erased from existence.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/SweetCountry'', brief glimpses of the characters' futures are scattered through the film. Several of them have context missing such that [[OnceMoreWithClarity it's not clear what they signify until the story catches up with that moment]], and because the flashforwards are not marked out by any visual or sonic cues there are a couple where it's not even obvious that they weren't contemporary events until they come around again.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars''; in the final episode of the Mortis arc, the Son (the physical embodiment of the Dark Side) shows Anakin his future, that he will fall to the Dark Side, betray the Jedi and become Darth Vader. Anakin accepts the Son's offer of an alliance to stop the visions from coming true and turns to the Dark Side until [[BigGood the Father]] wipes the visions from his mind.

Opposite of a FlashBack and different from a DistantFinale and not quite TimeTravel or a DreamSequence. The Flash Forward is a look ahead at what may be a possibility in the characters' futures. When it occurs once at the very start of a work, it's HowWeGotHere.

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12037108/1/A-different-fight A Different Fight]]'', being an alternate version of ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' Season 4 (see below) also had one of these near the beginning. Barry visits Oliver DrowningHisSorrows in his apartment and asks about Laurel. Oliver replies that physically she should be fine, but they haven't told her about "the other thing" yet, and he says he's going to kill the one responsible. It later turns out, [[spoiler:the attempt on her life caused her to have a miscarriage.]]
