** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', if you find an NPC with unusual dialogue options, even if they don't cause anything to happen at that time, odds are they will be involved with a quest at some point in the future. The same is also true if the NPC simply lacks the usual dialogue options (latest rumors, little advice, little secret, etc.)
** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', in the quest journal, there is decorative knotwork surrounding the name of the quest. This varies depending on the type of quest (main quests, guild quests, Daedric quests, etc.) For many quests this isn't a problem, but for some of the Daedric quests, [[spoiler:A Night to Remember]] being a perfect example, it may not be obvious at first. Finding this out can be a major twist.[[labelnote:example]]like when [[spoiler:Sam Guevenne]] is revealed to really be [[spoiler:Sanguine]][[/labelnote]]

* Movie tickets in general can do this when they show the start and end times for the film. If the protagonist seems to have just about gotten what they need, but there are forty minutes still to go, you can just ''bet'' that something is going to happen that either recontextualises things so the protagonist needs something different or yanks the apparent chance for success out of their hands.

* Movie tickets in general Anything that reveals the duration of a movie can do this when they show - a movie ticket, video length bar (such as the start one under a Youtube video), the back of the DVD box and end times for the film.so on.

** You gain access to the [[{{Mons}} Blade]] Library, which keeps track of all the unique Blades you've summoned/obtained. It also shows the silhouettes of every single Blade you haven't obtained yet. Some of them will look rather familiar and they also appear at the top of list alongside those of Rex, Nia, and Tora's, [[spoiler: which makes it evident that both Morag and Zeke become party members eventually (Though it's not necessarily surprising in the case of the latter, as he features prominently on the full version of the game's boxart)]].

** You gain access to the [[{{Mons}} Blade]] Library, which keeps track of all the unique Blades you've summoned, shortly after you fight a villainous Blade in a plot-related boss fight. You may notice one of the silhouettes in the library looks suspiciously like that villainous Blade...
** You can find Core Crystals that increase damage dealt to [[spoiler: Titans]] very early into the game, implying you'll be fighting them eventually.

Added DiffLines:

* Possibly the biggest hook of ''Advent Dark Force'', an updated re-release of ''VideoGame/FairyFencerF'', is that you get to play two new gameplay routes with new stories. These are the [[spoiler:Vile God Story and Evil Goddess Story and the fact that there even ''exists'' an Evil Goddess is intended as a pretty major plot revelation in the Evil Goddess Story as there is nothing in the other two stories that even hints at this. However, the trophies/achievements for these are named "Vile God Story Cleared" and "Evil Goddess Story Cleared" and trophy guides for ''Advent Dark Force'' don't generally go to any effort to hide the names of these story modes.]]

** ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' introduces a seemingly random (though rather strange) Trainer who challenges you to a Pokemon battle... and gets an animated sprite, an honour reserved for significant characters only. Sure enough, that's the BigBad.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' introduces a the seemingly random (though rather strange) Trainer N, who challenges you to a Pokemon battle... and gets an animated sprite, an honour reserved for significant characters only. He also shares similar views to [[AnimalWrongsGroup Team Plasma]], wholeheartedly believing in their Pokémon liberation goals, and constantly guilt-trips the player character into not battling. Sure enough, that's the BigBad.BigBad... until [[TheManBehindTheMan Ghetsis]] is introduced.

* In ''Webcomic/DumbingOfAge'', [[spoiler:Jocelyne Brown]] is a closeted trans woman who has mentioned this fact exactly once on-panel, a significant length after her first appearance. Shortly after this reveal, all of the old comics tagged with her birth name were updated to use her proper name, giving the reveal away to anyone who hadn't read that far yet. A later comic {{lampshade|Hanging}}d this in the AltText.
-->sooner or later [Joyce and Becky] are gonna hafta look down at the tags
