* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya''. It's all over the place in the anime (by season 1 broadcast order), and to a lesser extent in the light novels, due to the AnachronicOrder. But even when watched/read in chronological order, this trope is still in place due to TimeTravel.
** When Kyon and Haruhi meet, she asks him if [[HaveWeMetYet they've met before]], which, as far as Kyon knows, is not the case. Later on, Taniguchi tells him that in middle school Haruhi once snuck into the school at night and drew strange symbols in chalk in the track field. Three months after that, in "Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody", time traveler Asahina takes Kyon three years into the past... where he sees Haruhi breaking into her middle school and has to help her draw those symbols in chalk.

* Special mention goes to ''{{Achron}}'', a game which makes this a standard ''multiplayer game mechanic''.

* In ''Film/{{Deadpool 2016}}'', Ajax mentions a breakdown in his chain of monthly supply to one of his clients and tells him that he will provide in two months. It's later shown that he is creating superpowered slaves and selling them to the highest bidder, but one of his subjects (Wade) destroyed his facility and has been hunting down people in his organization, leading to the breakdown.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TuckerTheManAndHisDream'' was made in TheEighties and is a period film set in the late 40s and early 50s but has two scenes that refer to incidents that came in later decades.
** The senate hearing and presentation by Tucker where he shows grisly images of car accidents and the unsafety of many automobiles was obviously a reference to the crisis in Big Auto in the late 60s and early 70s around the time of Ralph Nader's ''Unsafe at Any Speed''. Tucker proposes that [[CassandraTruth his cars have measures that will improve passenger safety]] and convenience. It would be much later when the other cars followed suit.
** Tucker's final speech at the Court has him noting that the ability of large corporations to crush independent inventors and entrepreneurs will hold back American ingenuity and knowhow and that eventually Japan and Germany will surpass them in consumer electronics and cars. By the time Coppola made this film in the 80s, this became increasingly true, and its especially prescient in the 21st Century.

* Creator/AlanMoore's ''ComicBook/{{Providence}}''
** Issue 3 includes several references to UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust, the Swastika that Robert Black runs into on the road and a dream where he sees several of the fish-folk executed in the Gas Chamber. He also sees J. Edgar Hoover with a HumanoidAbomination, which is depicted in ''The Courtyard'' in a photo dated a few years after this series.
** Issue 7 has O'Brien complaining about Governor UsefulNotes/CalvinCoolidge, predicting he'll use the RedScare and militia suppression of the riots and parlay that into a political career where he'll ruin things even more. Coolidge who once proclaimed "the only business in America is business" is regarded as a President whose policies paved the way for TheGreatDepression, scheduled for arrival 9 years later.

* ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' gives you the Monado, which at various points in and out of battle allow you to see things that will happen in the future, allowing you a chance to change the future. It still manages to be surprising though, as due to the lack of context most lines you hear in flash forwards don't end up meaning what you think they mean.
