* 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.

* ''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.

* 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.
