* In ''Film/TheHobbitTheBattleOfTheFiveArmies'', Bilbo Baggins is trying to fetch a particular gemstone which is being guarded by a dragon. When the dragon gets bored toying with Bilbo it tries to kill him, and Bilbo [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere books it]]; a flashback quite a while later reveals that he did indeed manage to snatch the gemstone as he was running.



* Spoofed in an episode of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', in which the characters engage in duelling flashbacks, each one blurrier than the last (in parody of a similar effect in the movie they were watching). Turns out the flashbacks were blurry because [[spoiler:the lead character was coming in to grab his contact lenses]].



* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJG698U2Mvo "Invisible Gorilla" experiment]]. The viewers of a video featuring people passing a basketball to each other is shown, and the experimenter (or teacher, as many psychology teachers also do this in class) tells the participants to pay attention to and count the number of passes. The first time watching the video viewers are distracted enough they don't usually notice it, but there is a random person in a gorilla suit who is visible on screen for a few seconds.

[[note]] This works usually because the people are dressed in brightly colored uniforms which contrast the dark gorilla suit, and the watcher's eye generally focuses on those bright colors to the exclusion of all else -- until later, when [[RewatchBonus you know what to look for]].[[/note]]

** The post-credits scene for ''Film/DoctorStrange'' sees Strange meeting with Thor and agreeing to help find Odin as long as the Asgardians leave Earth immediately afterwards. [[spoiler:As before, this is a scene straight out of ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', with Thor and Loki coming to Earth to retrieve Odin (whom Loki had hidden on Earth so he could rule Asgard in his place). Strange gets their attention by [[IFellForHours dropping Loki through a portal]] and [[MyCard leaving a business card for Thor]].]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/LovingVincent'', several scenes are repeated and made more clear from another's perspective. For instance, some in Auvers assume Vincent and Dr. Gachet quarreled over Vincent's friendship with Marguerite - but the doctor later reveals the fight was over his own artistic pretensions.

* ''Belgarath'' and ''Polgara'', the two {{prequel}} support novels for the {{Belgariad}}/Mallorean series by David Eddings, do this with a few events. In other cases it's more RashomonStyle.

* A brief one in ''VideoGame/BioShock'', during the [[spoiler:"Would You Kindly?"]] sequence, where a FullyAutomaticClipshow shows [[spoiler:how Atlas has been manipulating you through mind control the entire game]].
** The PlayableEpilogue of ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'' functions as this, where Booker finally retrieves his true memories: [[spoiler:[[ArcWords "Bring us the girl and wipe away the debt"]] wasn't an order to save Elizabeth from Columbia, but to sell his daughter Anna to Comstock. The exchange between the Luteces in the boat wasn't referring to an inability to row on Booker's part, but the fact that no matter what happens, no version of Booker ever offers to row. Even the baptism Booker flees from in the ''epilogue itself'' is given new meaning: it's the baptism where Booker made an unintentional choice to "become" Comstock or stay as Booker]].
** There's a scene in ''BioShockInfinite/BurialAtSea'' where Elizabeth discovers that the Luteces convinced Daisy to threaten a child (an action seen in the main game from Elizabeth and Booker's perspective). While she [[EvenEvilHasStandards initially refuses]], they soon convince her it's for the greater good, as they need to kickstart Elizabeth's CharacterDevelopment [[spoiler:by having her kill for the first time]]. Another scene in the same episode shows exactly why Suchong was [[spoiler:attacked and killed by a Big Daddy]] after hitting a Little Sister, even after reporting his failure on getting them to imprint: Elizabeth had previously developed the secret to getting the Sisters to imprint on the Big Daddies, and the Sister he hit was the one who helped the [[spoiler:Daddy who killed him]]. We also get to see it in [[LaserGuidedKarma glorious detail]].

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', this happens twice. First, a replay of the destruction of Nibelheim from Sephiroth's point of view reveals that [[ItWasHisSled Cloud was never there]] and his memories are fake. The second time, we see the incident from Cloud's point of view with his real memories restored, and find out he ''was'' there after all: he was the [[FacelessGoons masked guard]] who followed Zack and Sephiroth around and barely said a word.
