* The fifth volume of ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'' is primarily a flashback, detailing the [[DidYouJustRomanceCthulhu relationship]] between [[TheHero Kyousuke]] and [[BigBad the White Queen]]. Anyone who's read any of the previous novels will know that said relationship will be broken off by the end.

** In ''[[VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth Ace Attorney: Investigations]]'', Edgeworth is shown at his first trial during a flashback case. [[spoiler: It's not the one with Mia, so you know something's going to go horribly wrong; the suspect is killed at the beginning of the case and instead of prosecuting him, Edgeworth has to figure out what happened.]] At the end of the case, present-day Edgeworth comments that [[spoiler: his true first case would take place months later, and if you've played ''Trials and Tribulations'', you already know what's going to go down..]].

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilZero'', despite being a prequel, goes both ways with this trope. You know Rebecca will end up in the Spencer mansion and you know her entire team dies, but since Billy isn't even so much as mentioned in any other games you have no clue whether he'll die, be handed over to the authorities by Rebecca, or make his escape.
** Actually in Resident Evil 2 which was released before Zero Billy Coen is mentioned in a report in the file room of the rpd where you have to push a ladder for a puzzle. In it it's stated he died. [[UnreliableNarrator But since Rebecca is the one who wrote it...]]

** Any time they come close to capturing or killing an important figure in the Separatist Alliance or if any of the Jedi are in peril. You already know Nute Gunray is going to get away and that Obi-Wan somehow escapes the supposedly inescapable trap. The series does avert this to a degree whenever they feature clones, since you never know which among them will get offed the next minute.
** As the series is an interquel set between [[Film/AttackOfTheClones Episode II]] and [[Film/RevengeOfTheSith Episode III]] of the prequel trilogy, and KidAppealCharacter Ahsoka, Anakin's Padawan, is nowhere to be found in the latter, ''something'' is going to happen to her eventually which removes her from being able to do anything to influence the events of the movies and makes Anakin, who is quite attached to her, not want to talk about her. [[spoiler: Turns out that she is expelled from the Jedi Order after being framed for a crime she didn't commit. Though the truth eventually comes out and she is acquitted, she declines to return to the Jedi afterwards due to the Council's lack of trust in her.]]
** While the series obviously cannot touch any named Jedi that appear in or after ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', they do manage to off some important Franchise/StarWarsLegends characters. Since ''The Clone Wars'' is part of the new Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse, these deaths are final. [[spoiler: This becomes quite shocking in the season finale, in which Barris Offee is arrested as a terrorist. She was supposed to die by her master's side during Order 66, which was ultimately cut from the movie but appeared in a comic.]]
** The "Conspiracy" arc in season 6 revolves around ARC Trooper Fives investigating Order 66 after it is triggered prematurely in his friend Tup by accident. Since the order is successfully executed in ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', we know he's going to fail to expose it. [[spoiler: Indeed, the story ends with Fives being shot dead, the Jedi believing him to have gone insane and dismissing his claims, and all of the evidence being quietly swept under the rug by Dooku, Palpatine and the Kaminoans.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'': [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS3E16SecretCargo "Secret Cargo"]] is about the ''Ghost'' crew having to deliver Senator Mon Mothma, who's recently become a fugitive after publicly denouncing the Emperor, to her destination after a routine refueling mission goes wrong. Despite the tension of the Imperials chasing them, we know the heroes will succeed, because Mothma appears in ''Film/RogueOne'' and ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' as the leader of the Rebellion. Heck, she's even still alive by the time the Empire has fallen.

** "Symphony Of Illumination" subverted the trope, [[spoiler: using the framing device of having Robin talking to her kids at some point in the future. She then gets told she's infertile, implying at first that it's this trope and that it will turn out she can have kids after all. Then at the end it turned out the kids only existed in her imagination and she really was infertile.]]
