* In ''Film/TheGodfather'' Mario Puzo frequently mentions something that will happen, and then "rewinds" to show ''how'' it happened. For example, the deaths of [[spoiler:Sonny -- the scene with Vito calling in the favor from the undertaker appears before the tollbooth sequence]] and [[spoiler:Vito]].
* The "Emperor" series (as well as any other story depicting the life of Caesar). It's known what will happen between Julius and Brutus in the end, yet the story is very compelling all the way through.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'', despite initially being antagonistic towards each other, the audience knows that Mike and Sulley will be the best of friends. [[spoiler: Subverted because while most knew that Sulley would become a Scarer and Mike his assistant, it wasn't easy to guess that they would be expelled from the university and have to work their way up Monster Inc. the hard way.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Disney/LiloAndStitch2StitchHasAGlitch'': Near the end of the film, Stitch [[spoiler:dies shortly after being put in the fusion chamber made to fix him]]. However, since this film takes place before the events of ''WesternAnimation/StitchTheMovie'', which was released two years earlier as the PilotMovie of ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'', then those watching ''Lilo & Stitch 2'' who are aware of ''The Series''[='=] existence will know that [[spoiler:[[DisneyDeath Stitch's death doesn't take]]]].

* After viewing the first episode of the anime adaptation of ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' which shows Guts as a {{badass}}, {{BFS}}-wielding, {{handicapped|Badass}} {{jerkass}}, who seems to have a beef with a dude named Griffith, and seeing that a big portion of the series is in fact a flashback, we all know how Guts is going to end up by episode 25: the rest shows us {{how|WeGotHere}}.

Added DiffLines:

* If players have played ''VideoGame/ZeroNoKiseki'' and ''Ao No Kiseki'' before playing ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel I and II'', players will already know that [[spoiler: [[EvilChancellor Osborne's faction]]]] wins the CivilWar ''before'' the latter games come out.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Disney/TheSwordInTheStone'': Anyone remotely familiar with the original [[Literature/TheOnceAndFutureKing Once and Future King books]] or the [[Myth/KingArthur King Arthur legend]] they're based on knows that Wart is going to be the one to pull the sword out of the stone in the ending. As a result, [[ItWasHisSled Disney doesn't even treat it as a spoiler]]--the cover art for home video releases of the movie outright show him pulling out the sword.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'', Bill, one of the protagonists from the previous game, is dead and you get to see his body at the end of The Passing campaign. The Sacrifice campaign takes place right before The Passing, so you know Bill is going to be killed off. However, you can choose to have someone else die in Bill's place, but canon dictates Bill was the one who performed the HeroicSacrifice.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{Neogicia}}'' due to its SpinOff nature. It tells the story of part of the NonPlayerCharacter population from ''Literature/{{Noob}}'', including a woman who is a very advanced [[BioAugmentation neomancer]] in ''Literature/{{Noob}}'', but has just become a neomancer in ''Literature/{{Neogicia}}''. Her early ambitions in the first novel are different from the job she's doing several year later and the second reveals her to have progressed through the neomancer ranks in an unusual and unexpected way.

* All prequel-style fan works struggle with this. For example, in Maurauder-era ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fics, everyone already knows that Lily and James will end up together and so will Frank and Alice, Snape will 'turn bad', Peter will betray his friends, Sirius will end up in prison and everyone is going to die...
