Cue Episode 15, where she gets into a very loud and emotional (that is, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness uncharacteristic]]) argument with Weiss about the Faunas and [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters the White Fang]], and:

And their leader is Mr. Mxyzptlk. Guess who is the BigBad?

* ''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.

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.

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.
