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.

* ''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.]]

** 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 with two gems each. 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.
