* 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.

* The first case of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Trials and Tribulations'' is Mia Fey's second case. The ''fourth'' case of the same game is Mia's ''first'' case. The former contains a few allusions to the latter, including [[spoiler:Mia and Dahlia Hawthorne commenting that they know one another]] and [[spoiler:references to the poisoning of Diego Armando]].

* ''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.

* ''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.

* ''{{Franchise/Gundam}}'' does this a lot, thanks to the number of {{Midquel}}s in the Universal Century timeline. The most famous example would probably be ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083 Gundam 0083]]'', whose plot ends with the founding of the Titans, the villains from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'', which was made 16 years earlier but chronologically takes place 4 years later. Other examples come in the form of HumongousMecha which are {{Retcon}}ned into being ancestors of later ones, such as the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080 Gundam NT-1 "Alex" and GM Sniper II]] foreshadowing the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Nu Gundam]] and [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Nemo]] respectively.

* A rather bizarre example is in ''SpaceQuest 4'', where Roger time-travels to ''Space Quest X - Latex Babes of Estros'' and meets the titular Latex Babes, resulting in the page quote. Bizarre in that the series hasn't progressed beyond [=SQ6=] and shows no signs of continuing, so the events being Futureshadowed may never occur.

* In ''Series/BabylonFive's'' big time travel story, Sheridan gets stuck years in the future, where he sees the disaster that his actions will bring for [[spoiler:Centauri Prime]]. Unfortunately, he doesn't learn how it's going to happen, which is kind of a prerequisite for [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong setting right what once went wrong]].

*In the ''WesternAnimation/LegionOfSuperHeroes'' cartoon, a teenage Clark Kent is brought to the future and operates as Superman at a time - from where he sits - not long before his Metropolis super-debut. There's an episode where Brainiac 5 is ill, and ranting and rambling. One thing he says, that sounds like a NonSequitur to everyone but the viewer, is "GreenRocks [[KryptoniteFactor kill]] [[LastOfHisKind the last son]]!"

* In [[UseOfWeapons Use Of Weapons]], by [[AnachronicOrder anachronic order]]. There are frequent references to someone known as The Chairmaker, who had committed atrocities, but it is a long time before we find out what they did, and why they are called The Chairmaker.

** Londo's prophetic dream in "The Coming of Shadows" depicts him becoming Emperor (but being utterly miserable) and ultimately strangling and being strangled by G'Kar (a prophecy he mentioned in the first episode of the series proper). Later episodes show the events leading up to these outcomes and puts them in context.
