** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVPhantomPain'' introduced a young boy, Eli, who becomes a (somewhat) enemy to Diamond Dogs later in the game. Venom and Skull Face are separately dedicated to capture and kill(respectively), the young boy. This seems unimportant but played straight by the fact that [[spoiler:Eli is a [[StartOfDarkness young Liquid Snake]] .]]

Added DiffLines:

** Same with EVA. Killing her will also net a {{time paradox}}, probably hinting her mission to retrieve the Philosophers' Legacy. [[spoiler: She will go on to become a volunteer at the Les Enfantes Terribles project, where she gives birth to Solid and Liquid Snake. Yes, without her, there is no Metal Gear.]]
** In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'', Miller tries to take Big Boss down with a TakingYouWithMe moment, but Big Boss pulls his grenade and saves them both. Miller will go on to become Solid Snake's master, [[spoiler:and is killed by orders of Liquid.]]
** In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPortableOps'', all tension of Roy Campbell and Null[[spoiler:Gray Fox]] dying in the game is removed,as Campbell serves as Snake's MissionControl, and [[spoiler:Gray Fox]] becomes a member of FOXHOUND.

** Subverted when [[spoiler:Salvatore Maroni]] dies in the season 1 finale, long before [[spoiler:Harvey Dent becomes Two-Face]] which was his doing in the comics. Also [[spoiler: Barbara Kean]] is killed in the Season 3 finale, obviously never becoming [[spoiler: Jim Gordon's wife and mother of {{Batgirl}}]].

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAssaultOnArkham'' is an interquel, so as they played roles in later chronological installments in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'', the Joker, Harley Quinn, the Riddler, Two-Face, and Riddler were sure to survive.

* In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: The Blazing Sword]]'', this happens to several characters. Marcus, Merlinus, Bartre, and Karel must live to become playable characters once again in ''The Binding Blade'', Eliwood, Hector, Bartre, Karla, Rath, Nino, Pent, and Louise must live to become the parents of playable characters in the same game, Eliwood, Hector, and Guinevere must live to become supporting characters, and Zephiel, Murdock, and Erik must live to become enemy bosses. (Hawkeye, Canas, and Rebecca, despite being the parents of playable characters, can still die - Hawkeye and Canas due to their children already being born, and Rebecca due to an oversight.)

-->'''Tyler:''' ''Aw, come on!'' I sat through the ''boring'' stuff! I ''know'' he doesn't get ''shot'' or he wouldn't be a principal now! (BeatPanel) Unless...they made a ''robot'' that ''looks'' like him...[[note]]Given that another of the school's staff is an android, this isn't that far-fetched.[[/note]]

*** Specifically inverted in the case of the Rebel pilot with the call sign "Red 5". As soon as we hear that sign, we know this pilot *has* to die, because that call sign is available for Luke to use in ''Film/StarWarsANewHope''.
