* Since they're so full of WhamEpisode, a lot of ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' games are fun to replay just for the sake of subtle {{Foreshadowing}}. In the case of ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia,'' it's worth playing twice to try out the MultipleEndings as well. Here are a few more examples.

* Many Creator/{{Pixar}} movies have something from an ''upcoming'' movie worked in. It'd take the likes of Franchise/SherlockHolmes to recognize Nemo from ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' as the toy fish Boo handed to Sully in ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc,'' but you'll definitely notice these things on your next viewing of the earlier film.
* ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'':
** Seemingly innocent lines from Prince Hans can be re-interpreted as disguising his true nature in later viewings. For example, during his duet with Anna, some of his lines ("We finish each other's-" "Sandwiches!" "That's what ''I'' was gonna say!") are suddenly less {{Narm}}, more signs of tailoring himself to make Anna fall for him. In particular, in the same duet, he has a line about having waited his whole life to "find my own place". While he says this, he isn't looking at Anna - he's turned away from her to gesture at her kingdom. On one's first viewing, it's difficult to notice that he's essentially admitting to being more interested in the kingdom than the girl here, but it's glaringly obvious on a rewatch.
** Observant viewers will notice that during the scene where Hans "saves" Elsa from being shot by a crossbow bolt, which brings an enormous chandelier down on her, that he both glances up to make note that the chandelier is above Elsa, ''and'' has compleatly wrested control of the crossbow from its owner when the arrow is fired.
** Similarly, the lyrics of the opening song foreshadow a lot of the later events of the film; Elsa's powers and her developmental stages, the freezing of the harbor, the frozen heart, and the importance of [[ThePowerOfLove true love]].
* The opening musical number "This is Halloween" in ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' can seem even more awesome when you watch it the second time, and you realize that the inanimate pumpkin-headed scarecrow in the very first shot is the hero Jack Skellington; it first seems to be a simple establishing shot to set the mood of the film, until the scarecrow reappears and springs to life towards the end of the song, revealed to be a disguised Jack in a pumpkin mask. Relatedly, the [[BigBad main villain]] Oogie Boogie can seem even scarier when you realize that he's also introduced in an anonymous cameo during the opening, as "the Shadow on the Moon at Night".
* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'':
** Once you know who's actually behind it all and why, certain early events that seemed innocent on first viewing take on a more sinister cast. [[spoiler:The way Bellwether happens by at ''just the right time'' to force Chief Bogo into putting Judy on the Otterton case no longer seems quite so coincidental in retrospect -- and her excusing herself from her office as Judy and Nick look through the traffic cameras no longer seems unintentional.]]
** At the beginning of the movie, Judy chases down a thief, who has stolen bulbs from a florist. [[spoiler:Why would a thief steal bulbs from a florist? Later, Judy identifies them as Night Howler bulbs (though she uses the scientific name for them) when talking to Chief Bogo about the crime, then we learn that Otterton is a florist, laying a firm foundation for a flower to be an important part of the case.]]
** It is more apparent when Nick/Judy are able to come up with their BatmanGambit. [[spoiler:As Nick says "we'll think of something" he is looking down at the blueberries spilled on the floor and his face clearly shows an idea forming before being interrupted by Bellwether, who then proceeds to gloat for a while giving them time to set up their plan.]]
** Doubles as a FreezeFrameBonus, there's a very brief shot of Nick and Judy reacting to what they're hearing when [[spoiler:the unnamed badger doctor explains to Lionheart her theory about the savage incidents having to do with the predators' biology.]] If you pay close attention to their faces, you can see that Judy starts listening intently like she thinks that makes a lot of sense and explains everything, while Nick looks shocked and offended that such a thing would be suggested. This very subtly foreshadows [[spoiler:how Nick becomes terribly upset when Judy repeats the theory at the press conference]].
** As the subway car that Nick and Judy have commandeered tips over from taking the curve too fast, a brief cut inside the car shows Nick falling to the side and a split second later, the briefcase holding the [[spoiler:Nighthowler serum and airgun]] falls right into Nick's stomach giving him the opportunity to save it from the crash. Watching the remainder of the crash scene shows how the animators cleverly position Nick to shield the briefcase from the audience's view until the final reveal.
** When Nick is confronting Judy about her comments during the press conference, he asks if she's afraid of him -- her nose twitches in the same manner as her childhood confrontation with Gideon, giving a subtle hint that the answer is "Yes".
** When Nick is giving his WhatTheHellHero speech to Chief Bogo, he says that they have 10 hours left. If you watch Judy's face when he says this, she is visibly concentrating, then frowns, indicating that she finds this statement incorrect, but then dismisses it with a subtle shake of her head.

* Creator/RobinJarvis' ''Literature/DeptfordMice'' books were made for this! Only after you read through all of them will you pick up on scenes and lines you passed over before and realise how significant they really were. For example, the bats' prophecy in the first book, ''The Dark Portal'' will become clear upon reading the main trilogy in its entirety. In the author's words:

** The color red isn't present in the majority of the film. The times when the color is present are generally [[spoiler: things that are touched by the "other world" inhabited by the dead and things that are especially emotionally charged for [[BruceWillis Dr. Malcolm Crowe]] or Cole, the boy, making them more present to them.]]

* A huge amount of things in ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' take on an entirely different meaning with context revealed only near the end of the game. In particular: [[spoiler:anything to do with Alvis, Zanza, Meyneth, Dickson and the Monado. Especially Alvis' heavy use of ExactWords]]. The things the High Entia ancestors tell Melia in the tomb and comments about the statues on Prison Island also make much more sense once you know [[spoiler:about the connection between the High Entia and the Telethia]].
* Rewatching the opening cutscene of ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' after beating the game, [[FreezeFrameBonus eagle-eyed players]] may notice [[spoiler:The Vita and The Ares]]. Lines of narration about [[spoiler:the Coalition Government knowing about the war in advance]] also make significantly more sense after learning about a particular late-game twist.

* Pretty much ''every'' [[TheReveal reveal]] about in the Anime/YuGiOhArcV series has been hinted one way or another through pasts episodes, and there much that is realized after a rewatch that there's no way we could fit all in one entry, but the fact that it has it's own folder in the {{Foreshadowing}} page '''especially''' after episodes 126 and 127 (which act as a MetaOrigin for the series as a whole) should be telling enough.

Many hints that [[spoiler:Clayface is masquerading as the Joker to cover for the real deal because of his failing health]] are given throughout, but don't become apparent until a second playthrough.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' often has hints in the dialogue and background that can be connected to things that are revealed later. For example, the episode "Alone Together" provides some interesting hints at Garnet [[spoiler:being a fusion of two gems, Ruby and Sapphire]]. Garnet is the most gleeful and encouraging of Steven and Connie [[spoiler:fusing into one person]], calling it an experience that is meant to be enjoyed. Also, when the other Gems say that fusion is hard for them to comfort Steven's initial failed attempts, Garnet deadpans that it isn't for her. [[spoiler:She's right, it isn't, since she spends her entire life as a fusion.]]
%%** Other hints at this include [[spoiler: Garnet having more than two eyes, opening two gems on the temple door, and even having two gems.]]
