** Very subtle, but in "Love Is An Open Door" Hans sings, "I've been searching my whole life to find my own place!" [[spoiler: Guess what Hans really wanted.]]
** Another subtle hint that [[spoiler: Hans is playing with Anna's feelings and is just leading her on, particularly when Hans sings the line about the two of them finishing each other's - only for Anna to jump in to say "sandwiches," followed by Hans's "That's what I was gonna say!" showing that he's tailoring his acting to draw her in.]]
** The very first song in the movie, "Frozen Heart" forshadows the plot, singing about how powerful, beautiful and deadly ice is. Along with it's title [[spoiler: foreshadowing the dangers of Anna's frozen heart]]. The best part foreshadowing though? During the song, the men chant the words "Let it Go".

** Very subtle, but in "Love Is An ''Love is an Open Door" Door'' is stuffed full of it. The first one is this: [[spoiler: at the beginning, Hans sings, "I've says that he's been searching my his whole life to find my "find his own place!" [[spoiler: Guess place", while gesturing towards Arendelle. It turns out that Arendelle, not Anna, was what Hans really he wanted.]]
** Another subtle hint that [[spoiler: Hans is playing with Anna's feelings and is just leading her on, particularly when Hans sings the line about the two of them finishing each other's - only for Anna to jump in to say "sandwiches," followed by Hans's "That's what I was gonna say!" showing that he's tailoring his acting to draw her in.

*** Another subtle hint that [[spoiler: Hans is playing with Anna's feelings and is just leading her on is Han's line about the two of them finishing each other's - only for Anna to jump in to say "sandwiches," followed by Hans's "That's what I was gonna say!" showing that he's tailoring his acting to draw her in.]]
*** Also from that song is that when Anna and Hans sing the line "Our mental synchronization/can have but one explanation" [[spoiler: they dance robotically, showing that Hans at least was just going through the motions.]]
*** [[spoiler: The way the line "You and I were just meant to be" is sung foreshadows that Hans and Anna ''weren't'' meant to be. Hans sings the "you", and Anna sings the "I", meaning that both of them were referring to Anna, and Hans was not mentioned at all.]]
*** Throughout the song, [[spoiler: Hans and Anna are not quite in sync and have little scenes showcasing this, foreshadowing how their relationship was not perfect after all.]]
** The very first song in the movie, "Frozen Heart" forshadows the plot, singing about how powerful, beautiful and deadly ice is. Along with it's its title [[spoiler: foreshadowing the dangers of Anna's frozen heart]]. The best part foreshadowing though? During the song, the men chant the words "Let it Go".

*** Her favorite thing about Rose was her Grew Beyond Their Programming philosophy, not her compassion - the latter of which almost ''everyone'' describes as her most prominent attribute.

Added DiffLines:

** "Bismuth": There's a ''lot'' of hints beforehand that the eponymous gem is not as benevolent as she seems:
*** 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''.
*** Steven says he's done a terrible thing when he breaks the bubble on Bismuth's gem. He has no idea how right he is.
*** Steven mentions that Bismuth is the first Gem he's met who hasn't tried to kill him.
*** 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

* ''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.

** 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.]]
