** When Leela is sentenced to death on the robot planet for being a human, she protests that she's not human, she's an ''alien''. [[spoiler: The computer judge never addresses this - and with good reason - Leela is revealed to be a mutant, but still human.]]

** It's worth noting that this wasn't the plan from the beginning, though, so Celestia's actions were likely originally meant to point to something else.

* At the end of the original ''Anime/LittleWitchAcademia'' OVA, it's all but stated that Diana is a {{Closet|Geek}}ed Shiny Chariot fangirl. Rewatching the beginning reveals that not only did she attend the same show as Akko, she's the very first character on screen.

* In the 2003 ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' anime, there actually are hints about [[spoiler:the reveal that the other side of the Gate is our world. During the flashback to what Ed saw when he saw the Truth, there are flashes of real world pictures, such as the American flag. Later on, one soldier is heard humming a real world song. And later, we see an abandoned chapel with many broken stain glass windows, and inside there are clearly crosses on the alter. And then when it goes into blatant foreshadowing, Izumi notes that a letter Hohenheim wrote to Dante was dated 400 years ago with a dating system based off the birth of Christ, a religion that hasn't been practiced in centuries in Amestris, showing us that Amestris is an alternate history of our world.]]

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. It's impossible to catch everything the first time around ([[AndrewHussie Andrew]] once claimed that you could read it ''10'' times and not catch all the {{Call Back}}s, {{Continuity Nod}}s, {{Ironic Echo}}es, {{Leitmotif}}s, {{Running Gag}}s, {{Foreshadowing}}, and the like), so you're ''bound'' to pick up on these while rereading. Given the KudzuPlot, unless you read TVTropes or the forums it's not impossible you won't pick up on major plot threads until the second time around.

* ''{{Series/Charmed}}'' retroactively does this with a handful of Season 3 episodes after the abrupt death of Prue at the end of the season.[[note]]Actress Shannen Doherty left the show[[/note]] Episodes like "Sin Francisco" and "Death Takes A Halliwell" have other characters calling Prue out on her reckless demon hunting behaviour. Other episodes like "Just Harried" have her learn AnAesop about not needing to devote so much time to her witch duties. In her final episode "All Hell Breaks Loose" those very character traits lead to her death.

* Fanfic/CodeGeassColorlessMemories many of the lines and {{Foreshadowing}} in the earlier chapters. Take on this once you know that Rai is [[spoiler: Half Sumeragi]] and that it was [[spoiler: C.C]] whom took his memories in the first place.
* In Fanic/TheGrimEdventuresOfEdEddNEddy, Eddy [[OutOfCharacter acting like a Doctor Octupus/Green Goblin]] in the ComicBook/Spiderman parody a makes perfect sense once you learn that he's [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy.]] Something similar happens in the WesterAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor crossover, but unlike last time, he's called out on it.

* In TheMovie of WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory, ''Ego Trip,'' Dexter is assaulted by [[HumongousMecha giant time-traveling robots]] sent to "destroy the one who saved the future." This is the inciting incident for the movie's entire plot. As it turns out, [[spoiler:the one who saved the future was ''Dee Dee'', and Dexter ends up collaborating with his three [[MyFutureSelfAndMe future selves]] to build the mechs in the first place and send them to destroy her. If you rewatch the scene in which Dexter first fights the robots, you'll notice they ''don't actually do anything,'' because Dee Dee vacated the premises a few seconds before they arrived.]]

* 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.
