* Thanks to Douglas Adams's fondness for dropping massive [[RetCon ret-conning]] [[BrickJoke Brick Jokes]] ''Literature/TheHitchHikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' "Trilogy" can be re-read in it's entirety with jokes from several books down the line giving meaning to silly throw-away gags in earlier books. For example: [[spoiler: the girl in the cafe in Rickmansworth is Fenchurch, Arthur and Ford are at Lord's with Slartibartfast a few days before the action of the first book, the Bowl of Petunias is Agrajag (along with many other living beings in the series), the Ultimate Answer is flawed because the Golgafrinchams took over from the Neanderthals and became modern humans, Gag Halfront ordered the Vogons to destroy Earth with the Hyperspace Bypass being a cover story, Zaphod stole the Heart of Gold so he could meet the Ruler of the Universe but then wiped his own memory, Roosta tells Zaphod to climb out of the window of the crashed Guide offices on the Frogstar so he won't leave the artificial universe in Zarniwoop's office... etc. Then there's everything going on in 'Mostly Harmless' from the "Temporal Reverse Engineering" thing to the fact that ElvisPresley also appears to have survived the destruction of the Earth.]]

* It's both enlighteningand [[HilariousInHindsight funny]] to read ''Literature/DaddyLongLegs'' again after you know that [[spoiler: Daddy Long Legs is Jervis Pendleton.]]

** The TheReasonYouSuckSpeech that Booker gives Comstock [[spoiler:as he starts strangling him]] has Booker call Comstock out on "abandoning" Elizabeth, even though what Comstock did is more along the lines of trying to control her life rather than forget about her. This reason for this [[spoiler:is that Booker's speech is actually subconsciously directed at himself, because he feels guilty for selling Elizabeth, thus abandoning her]].

* On a second playthrough of ''Videogame/BioShockInfinite'', you'll notice that practically every other line is some form of foreshadowing or irony in regards to the TwistEnding.

* On a second playthrough ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'':
** At the start
of ''Videogame/BioShockInfinite'', you'll notice the game a man and a woman row Booker out to a lighthouse, after which they seemingly disappear from the rest of the game. Were it not for the fact that practically every other line this scene is some form of foreshadowing or irony in regards meant to appear unimportant, and thus quickly forgotten, then this one scene with them would make it blatantly obvious that [[spoiler:these two are the Lutece twins who appear repeatedly throughout the game. For example, the subtitles refer to them as "A Gentleman" and "A Lady", which are also used to refer to the TwistEnding.Luteces until their names are learned; they talk about "experiments", which should give away that they're scientists; they even sound exactly the same. The only attempt to mask their identity is the fact that their faces are hidden]].
** Many of the things that Booker and Comstock say to each other could [[spoiler:easily be said to each other, which makes sense as they're alternate versions of each other]].

Added DiffLines:

** In the ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' review commentary, Doug says he loves the episodes with more characters the best, as you can rewatch and find someone doing something new each time.

* The opening cinematic of ''Videogame/MinecraftStoryMode'' has a narrator talking about "The Order of the Stone" -- four friends who went on to become legendary heroes. If you watch this scene after TheReveal that [[spoiler:Ivor was a member of the order but was [[UnPerson erased]] from the story]], you'll notice that the narrator puts emphasis on there being only ''four'' heroes.

** [[spoiler: In Episode 3, if you realize that Lukas knows about Petra/Gabriel's illness, you can spot him looking away from them in panic in some scenes.]]
** TheReveal that [[spoiler:the Order's story is a fraud]] makes a lot of what happens take on a completely different meaning.

* Pretty much all of Creator/VladimirNabokov's books have this, on account of his belief that the first time a reader reads any book they're just coming to grips with it, and you only really get to know a book on successive readings: the way he put it was "We do not read books: we re-read them." He actually built hidden spoilers into his work, for the benefit of people re-reading them: when you read ''Literature/{{Lolita}}'' for the second time, you know exactly how sad it is where it says in the foreword that "Mrs Richard F Schiller" died in childbirth.
