* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'', the masked, unidentified ninja dives for Ocelot's arm, and the music plays the sharp opening bars of [[spoiler:Olga]]'s theme, providing a clue for the musically observant as to who the ninja is before the official reveal. This one was in a very cinematic cutscene and was short - it was so subtle that everyone who hadn't shelled out for the OST (or watched the Making Of where the trick was blatantly pointed out by the announcer) probably didn't notice it.
** In ''MetalGearSolid4'', [[spoiler:Big Boss]]'s theme plays over the voice actor credits...

* ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' has Guzma's battle theme where part of it is a remix from the Aether Foundation base. [[spoiler: We later find out that Team Skull is working with the Aether Foundation]].

* An ''extremely'' hard one to spot in ''Film/TronLegacy''. During "Adigio for Tron" and the painful flashback to Clu's ambush, a brief snippet of Rinzler's theme plays at the moment of Tron's defeat.

* In the video game ''FlowerSunAndRain'' the end credits roll to a song nicknamed ''Welcome Home''. That song may be the single most leitmotif-heavy song Masafumi Takada has ever written. One interesting thing about it is near the end of the song, it stops abruptly with a needle drop noise, and then resumes again. But when it resumes, you can actually catch the subtle leitmotif of the song ''Kusabi'' from Grasshopper's previous game ''The Silver Case''. This is foreshadowing ''Flower, Sun, and Rain's'' [[TheStinger stinger]], which reveals that [[spoiler:your new pal Peter Bocchwinkur is really your old pal Tetsugorō Kusabi from ''The Silver Case'', whose theme music was hidden in the end credits theme.]]

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion'' inverts this: The music plays before the audience is supposed to know what's happening, but the music is bound to add to the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yx6gKa07RF4 growing unsettling feeling]] of the moment. It plays several times throughout the movie, [[https://youtu.be/ThM-N6xKGoo?t=1m54s with]] different modifications each time, depending on what's going on. Then the Reveal comes, and only then do we get [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsOzzgIB-2o this theme]], which is virtually the same thing, just upgraded so it sounds like it [--Spoiler Alert!--] [[spoiler:[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igj5L5tFVw4 begins a huge battle]]]]. This would have overlapped with foreshadowing if this trope was somehow played straight. Done the way it was, however, it's more of a musical [[WhamLine Wham Line]].
