* ''VideoGame/{{Yakuza 0}}'' takes place during Japan's "Bubble Economy", a period of economic prosperity. One of Goro Majima's sidequests involves rescuing a politician being attacked by store owners for wanting to implement a sales tax. Afterwards, Majima talks with the politician and makes some suggestions which, in retrospect, would be implemented only a few years later and result in the "Lost Decade", a severe economic recession that Japan is still recovering from to this day.

*** Tolkien ''probably'' did not intend that reference as this trope: the Akallabêth (included in ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'') is a reimagining of the Atlantis story, which (as also happened to ''Literature/TheHobbit'' / ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'') [[CanonWelding got dragged]] into the same canon as ''The Silmarillion''. The name ''Atalantë'' ([[ConLang actual Quenya]] for "The Downfallen") is far from the first linguistic pun in Tolkien's work.

** A series of missions in ''Unity'' has Arno protecting Désirée Clary, then Napoleon's fiancée, with the help of Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte, who ends up falling for her over the course of the missions. In later years, Bernadotte became a massive thorn in Napoleon's side and Désirée's influence was probably one of the reasons why he was never disgraced or even imprisoned.

* ''Series/That70sShow'' did this a few times. One instance had Jackie being annoyed because a regular television program she watched wasn't airing as usual because it was bumped by [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran_hostage_crisis some hostage crisis]] being on the news. In another case involving wrestling, wrestler Rocky Maivia talks with Red and Eric about his own son, and his belief that he'd grow up to be the most [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson electrifying man in all of wrestling.]] Red wishes him sarcastic good luck with that.
