* ''VisualNovel/War13thDay'' has this all over the place. That snowfall in summer? That out-of-place background and some of the characters' odd anatomy? The fact that everything hasn't died despite the sun having supposedly vanished? That's all right. [[AllJustADream You're trapped in a dream.]]
** You have to play through MultipleEndings to reach the True End. [[spoiler:Once you do, Wildfire learns that she's not having just any dream. She's having a DyingDream. All those routes you just went through? Well, that was her life flashing before her eyes.]]
* At the beginning of ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' Zero, over loudspeaker says, 'Some of you, I know, are familiar with this game. The Nonary Game.' [[spoiler: Everyone except Junpei, Seven and Lotus has first-hand experience with the Nonary Game and even Seven and Lotus are closely related to it.]]

** In "The Remote", if you [[FreezeFrameBonus pause at just the right moment]], you can see that the "remote" Anais smashes is actually a calculator, before it's actually revealed that she was faking.

** In the episode "Keep Beach City Weird", Ronaldo makes a whole load of wild claims. But the one that stands out most is the conspiracy he yells out at the very end of the episode. He says that polymorphic sentient rocks, led by the Great Diamond Authority, are planning to hollow out the Earth. Throughout the rest of season 1 and 2, it's revealed that Homeworld Gems (polymorphic sentient rocks), who are are led by the Diamond Authority (White Diamond, Blue Diamond, Yellow Diamond and before the rebellion, Pink Diamond) to hollow out the Earth and turn it into a Gem Colony.

But among his talks about the one snake people (or sneople) that stands out most is the conspiracy are behind everything, he yells out at the very end of the episode. He says that polymorphic a wild conspiracy about 'polymorphic sentient rocks, led by rocks' here on the Great behalf of 'the great Diamond Authority' who want to 'hollow out the Earth'. It's revealed piecemeal that Ronaldo is actually correct on all counts- 'polymorphic sentient rocks' is a pretty good way to describe Gems, most Gems are under the rule of a group of 3 (4, before Rose Quartz's rebellion) Diamonds known as the Diamond Authority, are planning and that the Diamonds' original plan was to hollow out the Earth. Throughout the rest of season 1 and 2, it's revealed that Homeworld Gems (polymorphic sentient rocks), who are are led by the Diamond Authority (White Diamond, Blue Diamond, Yellow Diamond and before the rebellion, Pink Diamond) to hollow out the Earth and turn it into a Gem Colony. gem colony.



*** The fact that the first time we see her, she's seen [[KickTheDog punching Lapis]] to the point that her physical form disappears - Lapis, for instance, has a rather thin build, wasn't a soldier, and looks generally unthreatening. Knowing that the first time we saw a character is a KickTheDog moment makes some of the {{Friendship Moment}}s between her and the other gems feel a bit... ''off''.

*** Bismuth looks confused and upset when she hears that Rose told the other gems that she went MIA.



*** Bismuth's TrueColors are foreshadowed by how, out of all the main Crystal Gems, she's the only one who welcomes Homeworld's return as a chance to do more damage to them. And possibly, by extension
*** While watching one of the Lonely Blade movies, Bismuth questions why the hero is hesitant to use an ArtifactOfDoom despite it clearly being a devastating weapon, hinting that she [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans believes the ends justify the means.]]

** During the prologue, when Vitruvius finishes reciting the prophecy about the person who will defeat the Kragle, Lord Business insists that he made it up. Much later, it turns out he was right.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie'' has a few scenes where a ship is accompanied by the sound of a child going "brrrrrrrrrrrrm" as it flies, foreshadowing [[spoiler:that the entire plot is merely being acted out by a child playing with one ''hell'' of a Lego collection.]]
* ''WesternANimation/StrangeMagic'': Marianne comments that the Bog King should rethink his giant pointy teeth skull entrance as the two fly off [[spoiler: for a romantic evening]]. Cue it [[DisneyDeath seemingly killing]] the Bog King when the castle starts collapsing.

** In "[[Recap/GravityFallsS1E4TheHandThatRocksTheMabel The Hand That Rocks the Mabel]]", [[BigBad Gideon]] sings his song "Lil Ol' Me", about his alleged telepathy. During the song, he puts his hand on his amulet, and tells the audience to stand up. Everyone, including [[KidHero Dipper]] does this, much to Dipper's surprise. Later, it's revealed that the amulet grants the user telekinesis.

** [[FreezeFrameBonus Blink-and-you'll-miss-it]] example in "[[Recap/StevenUniverseS1E32FusionCuisine Fusion Cuisine]]": when Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl break out of their fused form Alexandrite, their silhouettes are shown but Garnet briefly appears as two silhouettes, each with one gem. Then comes "[[Recap/StevenUniverseS1E49JailBreak Jail Break]]", where she's revealed to be two Gems that are constantly fused together. Garnet's unique status is also hinted at in the first season opening credits - the other Gems have one falling star in their backdrop when introducing themselves, Garnet has two - and in the unaired, considerably different pilot, where she's introduced standing between two giant stones, one red, one blue.

to:

** There's been quite a lot of foreshadowing to Garnet being a [[FusionDance fusion]] in the first season.
*** The first (most obvious) one is that Garnet has two gems instead of one. This could've been for symmetry purposes, except one of her gems has a square cut while the other one's cut is triangular. It's later revealed that the square-cut gem belongs to [[spoiler: Ruby]], while the triangular-cut gem belongs to [[spoiler: Sapphire]].
*** The Temple Door is also a huge hint. The gems that glow when Garnet opens it are side-by-side at the bottom of the 5-pointed star, and are bright red and blue respectively, instead of Garnet's brown-ish red.

*** There's also Garnet's reaction to the new fusion Stevonnie in the episode "Alone Together". When Stevonnie first enters the house, Garnet looks absolutely shocked, with her [[JawDrop mouth wide open]] and her hands pressed together. The camera cuts away from her until Amethyst laughs and tells Pearl to look at Garnet. When it focuses on her again, she's sporting [[NotSoStoic the biggest grin]] we've seen so far.
*** Plus, this dialogue, also from "Alone Together".

---->'''Garnet:''' Not for me.

A clue or allusion embedded in the narrative that predicts some later event or revelation. It could be a wayward comment or action, an event that doesn't make sense until later, a MeaningfulName, a rare blood type... so many things can warn us of the future. The foreshadowing may be [[Administrivia/InternalSubtrope ominous]], or mildly suggestive, or it could merely be ObviousInHindsight.
