** ''Leliana's Song'', a DLC pack for ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', looks at first to be just a short OriginStory for one of the game's most popular companions. Come ''DA2'' and ''Inquisition'', and Leliana's mentor figure in the Chantry becomes the [[ThePope Divine]], while Leliana herself gains an increasingly important role in the overarching narrative of the series, potentially [[spoiler:succeeding her mentor on the Sunburst Throne]].

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'':
** Within the game itself, the first act [[SlowPacedBeginning mainly sets up many plot points and characters that become important several years later]]--in fact, that's ''all'' the first act is, which commonly leads less patient players to assume that the game has no [[MythArc overarching plot]] at all.
** The game as a whole becomes this for the [[Franchise/DragonAge entire series]] in light of new revelations and developments in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition''. ''DAII'' was sometimes criticized for focusing on plot threads that appeared tangential to the MythArc developed in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' and [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOriginsAwakening its expansions]], but some of those threads ([[spoiler: the red lyrium, Flemeth's connection to the elves, the entirety of the ''Legacy'' DLC]]), turn out not to be tangential after all.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' retroactively makes ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilGunSurvivor Resident Evil: Dead Aim]]'' important to the series' ongoing canon. High-roller businessmen were aboard the Spencer Rain in order to bid on Umbrella's bioweapon experiments, but Morpheus Duvall murdered them all, taking Umbrella's capital with it and forcing them into bankruptcy.

* ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' seems to be using this heavily, as several chapters, characters and plot points that seemed to have nothing to do with the overall MythArc at the time (particularly [[spoiler: Aly's transformation in "A week for Kat"]]) have taken on greater importance later, especially after the events of Chapter 20. Even the second chapter, which looks like {{filler}}, contained set-up for what [[WordOfGod is now confirmed]] to be an AbortedArc.

* The NewWorldOfDarkness core rulebook began with a story about mechanical angels serving the enigmatic [[DeusEstMachina God-Machine]]. While popular, this didn't seem important until ten years later, with the release of the second edition, the God-Machine Chronicle, and DemonTheDescent, both of which involve the God-Machine heavily.
