* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' does this. A lot. Often through the slyest of references and asides. And then in the finale, pretty every single one of the ''many'' {{Chekhovs Gun}}s fires at once. It is possibly for this reason that the finale covers four chapters - and that's not counting the two chapter epilogue.

* ''[[Creator/ThisIsIt Don't Hug Me, I'm Scared]]'':
** In general:
*** There's AstralCheckerboardDecor in every episode. It foreshadows [[spoiler:the LotusEaterMachine nature of the world.]]
*** A lot of the teachers' bizarre behaviour and painful or subverted rhymes makes more sense with the revelation in episode 6 that [[spoiler:they're all pre-recorded programs]].
** In "Time":
*** Duck notes "an apple that's fresh is ripe to the core". The apple then rapidly rots while saying "But I rot over time and I'm not anymore". [[spoiler:At the end, Tony speeds up time to rot the puppets alive.]]
*** "An old man died" [[LackOfEmpathy "But look! A computer!"]]. Episode 4 focuses on computers and expands on the LuddWasRight themes in the second.
*** When Tony speeds up time, Duck Guy is the only one who isn't moving or expressing pain. [[spoiler:Duck Guy dies three episodes later.]]
** In "Love", the teacher gives his lesson only to Yellow Guy. Three episodes later, [[spoiler:he's the only one left]]. This also foreshadows the revelation that [[spoiler:the whole thing was [[AbusiveParents Roy's]] punishment for Yellow Guy.]]
** In "Computers":
*** The episode begins with the puppets playing a game called "Question Fun". The objective of the game is apparently to reach the door in the centre of the board, and Red is the closest. Later, Red is the only one who refuses to join Colin's "digital dancey", despite Colin describing it as fun, [[spoiler:and this allows him to find the way out of the DHMIS world.]]
*** Colin spontaneously appears in the room when the song starts with no explanation as to how he got there. Episode 6 reveals that [[spoiler:Colin and all the other teachers are part of a simulation that can place them in the room at any time.]]
** In "Health":
*** Once again, the teachers come out of nowhere with no explanation as to how they got in the room.
*** The drawing at the beginning has changed to show Red Guy looking in through the window, Duck Guy with X's over his eyes, and Yellow Guy smiling creepily. [[spoiler:At the end, Yellow Guy is tricked into eating Duck Guy alive, and Red Guy is revealed in the end credits to still be alive and be trying to help them from outside their reality.]]
*** The Healthy Band show the puppets a "health shape" which has Duck Guy's face in the "plain foods" section, i. e., [[spoiler:the things the Band are telling the puppets to eat.]]

* 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.]]

Good foreshadowing doesn't spoil the surprise, yet seems an obvious clue in retrospect. Bad foreshadowing either deflates the suspense or is too obfuscated (such as an IceCreamKoan) to predict anything. Foreshadowing may establish something to avoid an AssPull. Or it may put a viewer off as introducing a needless supernatural element to the story.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'', "The Masters of Evil," begins with a taxi driver reading a newspaper with a headline promoting a Baxter tenant's recollections of the time he got replaced by an alien. At first, this seems like just another of several {{Mythology Gag}}s featured in the paper (which also contained references to ComicBook/ThePunisher and the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}). However, later episodes reveal that shapeshifting Skrull aliens have started infiltrating the Earth, and replacing various crimefighters and villains, as part of a plan to TakeOverTheWorld.
