*** The thing with Baigan becomes even more obvious in later versions of the game. In the GameBoyAdvance version, every playable character has their CharacterPortrait appear onscreen when they speak. The fact that Baigan lacks a portrait is a dead giveaway that he's not playable. In the NintendoDS remake, Baigan uses a palette-swapped generic soldier model, in contrast to the rather distinct-looking (though still a palette swap, but not as obvious) helmetless sprite he had in prior versions of the game, which gives away that he's not a very important character, and certainly not playable.

* ''VideoGame/MetroidSamusReturns'' also has suspicious expansions and a very suspicious Teleport Station on the escape route you're expected to leave the game with. Also, some expansions are behind crystalline barriers that none of Samus' weapons can breach. Isn't the Metroid Queen supposed to be the final boss? [[spoiler:Nope; this time it's Ridley!]]

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', if you import your character from ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', the game gives you a quick review of all the decisions you've made thus far. Most of them are expected, but one of them is the choice of whether or not you saved Maelon's data, which is treated as a fairly minor decision when you make it. This makes it clear that the data is going to have an impact later on regarding [[spoiler:the genophage cure]]. This is also averted in the same game during the mission on [[spoiler:Palaven]]. When [[spoiler:Garrus]] talks off screen they are listed as [[spoiler:Turian Soldier]] in the subtitles. It's not until Shepard and the player actually see them that they are then listed under their own name.

** Scanning all of the systems for Search-and-Rescue assets as soon as possible makes searching for similar assets later in the game a breeze. Each system has a percentage marker (up to 100%) located next to it that dials down after some main missions. Thus, it's easy to see at a glance what systems need to be visited (even for side missions that may have popped up), taking a lot of the guesswork out of the supposedly-sprawling galaxy.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', a major player in one of the side quest chains ([[spoiler:specifically, Fray of the Dark Knight job quests]]) is eventually {{Reveal}}ed to be your EnemyWithout. Accordingly, this character's gender is "coincidentally" the same as yours -- even if you use a Fantasia potion to change genders mid-questline, or go through it on a different-gender alt. Luckily, this ''probably'' won't happen by accident, since Fantasias [[BribingYourWayToVictory cost real money]] and the game's mechanics discourage {{Altitis}}. But it's still ''possible''.

* ''VideoGame/TheTalosPrinciple'': A great many puzzles have names that directly hint at the respective puzzle's solution. Actually facilitating said solution is another matter, but paying attention to the name when entering a new area is never a bad idea regardless.

** While the autopsy report won't be presented in the case, if something is [[AbsenceOfEvidence missing]] or is worded in a particular way, it will likely end up being an important part of the trial.

* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', a Web Serial Novel, is published as a series of blog posts, with each post tagged with the characters appearing in it. However, the character tags sometimes include minor spoilers, such as revealing Atlas's name before he's named in story, or revealing the identity of Golem early. Subverted with the Echidna clones, which each have their own, named character tags despite only appearing briefly and never being named in story.

* LetsPlay/NorthernLion acknowledged in episode 4 of his ''[[VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac Binding of Isaac]]'' playthrough that his viewers would be able to guess whether he would succeed or fail a given boss fight based on how close to the end of the episode it was. At the time, the counter and scrub bar were constantly visible below the video instead of as an overlay that only appears when you mouse over it. This could apply to any Let's Play that always ends its episodes at a logical point such as the end of a level.

** The [[TransformationTrinket henshin belt]] from ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'' has 4 buttons on it, confirming from the moment that the belt is shown that Ryotaro will be possessed by 4 different Imagin for 4 different forms (not counting his base form, [[JokeCharacter Plat Form]]), each one ColorCodedforyourConvenience so that you know that not only will he be possessed by all-Yellow and all-Purple imagin, but they'll end up joining his side. [[spoiler: Then along comes Sieg, who not only lacks a button with his corresponding color (white), but he uses an entirely different belt to transform, although it's only a partial subversion due to how rarely it's used. There's also his MidSeasonUpgrade and SuperMode, which rely on outside devices, thus being a complete subversion]]. New Den-O, from the same series, subverts this trope entirely, since he can transform into his main form, Strike Form, regardless of which Imagin is possessing him (since they turn into weapons for him to wield as opposed to having him change forms), [[spoiler: and the one exception - Deneb, who lets New Den-O transform into Vega Form - also subverts this, due to the fact that there is no green button on the belt]].

* In the prologue of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', if Venom Snake is killed, a normal game over screen appears. If [[spoiler:Ishmael]] dies, however, it still causes a game over, with the screen stating that [[spoiler:you've created a time paradox,]] something that only happens in the prequel games when [[spoiler:a plot significant character who ''must'' appear in installments that chronologically take place after it die by mistake]]. This is an incredibly big hint as to [[spoiler:the twist that Ishmael is the real Big Boss, but also overlooks the fact that Venom Snake was the "Big Boss" of the original ''VideoGame/MetalGear'', who's death should ''also'' cause a time paradox...]]
