adding one of my personal favorite examples of this

* The boss fight against [[AnIcePerson Shiva, Lady of Frost]] in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' has significantly different lyrics from those of the other [[PhysicalGod Primals]] you fight: whereas the other themes typically [[VillainSong extol the Primal and their power]], Shiva's theme is in many ways a WorldOfCardboardSpeech sung by the NPC who called her forth, Lady Iceheart. [[spoiler:As it turns out, this is because Lady Iceheart is not only Shiva's WillingChanneler, but has been made ImmuneToMindControl by the power of the Echo...[[NotSoDifferent the same power granted to your character]]. You're not fighting Shiva the Primal...you're fighting Lady Iceheart wielding Shiva's powers.]]

* In ''AmericanHorrorStoryFreakShow'', Elsa Mars since "Life on Mars." When we get to the lyric "Take a look at the lawman, beating up the wrong guy," we get a shot of Jimmy. It's a foreshadowing hint to Meep being framed for murder and killed in prison, and Jimmy's vendetta with the police that comes of it. It also hints at Jimmy being framed for murder later on in the series, too. * There's a rather small one in ''ScreamQueens2015'', where Hester tells a ghost story about a girl driving on a road and being followed by a trucker, who was actually trying to warn her about the man in her back seat. During the story, the girl in the song is listening to a relatively obscure song called "Butcher Pete." This a stealthy hint towards Pete's FaceHeelTurn and becoming one of the three [[SerialKiller Red Devils.]]

** In ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Trials and Tribulations'', it's obvious pretty much instantly who [[spoiler: Diego Armando]] really is, but, when [[spoiler:Godot's distinctive, mournful, jazz {{Leitmotif}}]] starts playing, the player's suspicions are finally confirmed.

* The song "A Love Suicide"- which is about a {{Yandere}}'s spite towards her lover- accompanies both the intro and credits of ''VideoGame/RuleOfRose''. It's the first hint at the BigBad's true identity and [[LoveMakesYouEvil motivations]]...which won't be overtly revealed until eight chapters later. (Most first-time players don't notice it. because the intro cutscene is so [[MindScrew weird]] that few of them even notice its music.)

** Vanitas' theme has a portion that's very reminiscent of [[spoiler:Roxas' theme, and since there's an obvious visual connection between Roxas and Ventus, one can connect the dots between Ventus and Vanitas]].

* Players of ''{{Onimusha}} III'' will probably figure out quite easily, if not from the hundreds of other giveaways, who exactly Tenkai in ''Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams'' is.

Cleaning up a few DW examples; "Rose's Theme" was not used in the Series 4 premiere, and the theme we know as "This Is Gallifrey" wasn't associated with Gallifrey until the Series 3 finale.
* One letter: ''Film/{{M}}''.

%% ZCE: * One letter: ''Film/{{M}}''.

** When the Doctor and Professor Yana, a.k.a. [[spoiler:the Master, the Doctor's fellow Time Lord and childhood friend,]] first meet in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E11Utopia "Utopia"]], "This is Gallifrey (Our Childhood, Our Home)" plays in the background. ** Speaking of "Rose's Theme", it became so identified with that character, that in at least two instances (in which Rose reappeared in the series after having left earlier) it was the ''only'' identifier used for the character, with her name not even being uttered for the benefit of those not familiar with the established canon. ** "Amy in the TARDIS" is the name of Amy Pond's theme; part way through it segues into the 11th Doctor's "I Am the Doctor" albeit in a punched-up form that suggests the Doctor himself is better and more alive for having her around. ** In series 6, the same track plays during [[spoiler:The Doctor's death]] in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E1TheImpossibleAstronaut "The Impossible Astronaut"]] and [[spoiler:the revelation of River's identity]] in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E7AGoodManGoesToWar "A Good Man Goes to War"]], foreshadowing that [[spoiler:it is indeed River in the suit]]. The track's name on the soundtrack is [[spoiler:"Melody Pond"]].

* In the series finale of ''Smallville'' stings of the classic John Williams Superman theme are used throughout the episode to hint at where things are headed, with the entire theme bursting forth at the appropriate moment.

* In ''MetalGearSolid2'', 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.
