* ''Film/ForbiddenPlanet'': Early in the film, Dr Morbius introduces the characters the great machine's power gauge, explaining that each dial indicates exponentially more power being put out; there are more dials on the machine than can be seen in frame, suggesting the machine can output trillions of petawatts. Later in the film, after the monster attacks, the film cuts back to the lab where Morbius has been sleeping, and in the background ''every'' dial on the gauge is lit up. The gauge slowly trickles down to zero as Morbius gathers his senses and explains the nightmare he just had, which sounds eerily similar to the monster attack.

* TheFilmOfTheBook of J.G. Ballard's Film/HighRise depicts the slow but sure decline of the title building, in the form of ever-increasing rubbish piles and the building's infrastructure falling apart bit-by-bit.

* Art/SistineChapel:
** While Roselli's ''Last Supper'' shows the titular dinner in the foreground, the fresco also shows Christ's prayer, arrest, and crucifixion through the windows in the background, which are important to understand why the next of the Stories of Jesus depicts ''The Resurrection of Christ''.
** The foreground of Botticelli's ''The Temptation of Christ'' doesn't actually contain the temptations of Christ, which are relegated to three different spots in the background. Instead, the foreground contains a leper healed by Jesus talking to a Jewish priest, perhaps to represent the continuity between Mosaic Law and Jesus's teachings.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': In the Norway segment of the DistantPrologue, one of the discussion subjects among the friends on which the segement focuses is the fact that the only land road in and out fo their village is broken because of an ongoing storm. That isolation most likely contributed to that village surviving TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnow and still being around ninety years AfterTheEnd.

* In the episode "The Lion and the Rose" of ''Series/GameOfThrones'', there is a brief scene where Olenna Tyrell speaks with Sansa Stark during the wedding between Joffrey Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell. [[spoiler: In a blink-and-you-miss-it moment, Olenna plucks one of the seven crystals from Sansa's necklace. Those crystals contain a deadly poison, and we see Joffrey put down his goblet within arm's reach of Olenna. Guess who ends up dying of poison at the end of the episode? For bonus points, a later shot of Sansa shows only six crystals on her necklace.]]

* Before the sudden and gruesome death of [[spoiler:[[GeneralRipper General Regius]]]] in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha [=StrikerS=]'', we actually see the killer moving closer to the victim in the background with each shot of the room they're in. But since [[spoiler:she was [[MasterOfDisguise disguised]] as a LivingProp]], it's quite easy for the audience's mind to ignore it the first time around.
