* A moderately common device in ''ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace''. Whole-strip flashforwards are signalled by the page having a red background (just as [[WholeEpisodeFlashback whole-strip flashbacks]] have a blue background), but more common are strips that flash forward in the last panel, usually using the Lancelot/Guenevere relationship for HypocriticalHumour.

* In ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' Black Mage gets pinned to the front of an airship while it's traveling at high speed. While pinned there we see a conversation between him and another character years in the future as Black Mage finally turns against the Heroes and asks why they left him pinned to the ship. The same conversation occurred in-story much later.

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 InMediasRes.

* ''SavedByTheBell'' featured an episode set in 2003 (then 10 years in the future), where an aged Mr Belding watched a video from the gang in 1993. However, it was an excuse for a ClipShow.

* In the ''BoyMeetsWorld'' episode "Seven the Hard Way", the gang has gotten into a fight that has tested all of their friendships. There is a flash forward to a potential future where the gang has broken up, and takes place when they reunite for the first time at Mr. Feeny's retirement party seven years later. In this future, Cory and Topanga have had a baby, Shawn and Angela are both traveling journalists, Jack is a "captain of industry" ([[RidiculouslySuccessfulFutureSelf in his late twenties]]), Rachel moved back to Texas, and Eric became an insane [[TheHermit hermit]] who calls himself "Playswithsquirrels". However, when the episode returns to the present everybody reconciles and this future is averted. [[spoiler:[[Series/GirlMeetsWorld 15 years later]], not so much for Shawn and Angela]].
