* 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.

* Opera example: In Creator/RichardWagner's ''Die Walküre'' (from his gargantuan ''[[Theatre/DerRingDesNibelungen Ring]]'' cycle ), the eponymous heroine Brünnhilde tells Sieglinde that this DamselInDistress is pregnant -- but the music reveals the unborn child's identity through the use of the Siegfried {{leitmotif}}, which is next encountered (and clarified) in the next opera of the cycle (''Siegfried'', naturally).

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' associates many characters with [[{{Leitmotif}} particular instruments and bits of music]]. Several times, someone's music hints their involvement, and similarity between two themes hint at the characters' present or future connection:
** Pearl's main instrument is piano. Connie's is normally a synth bell, but when she's involved in an action scene it changes to also be piano. About a season ''after'' we first hear the latter, Connie becomes Pearl's apprentice and learns how to sword fight from her.
** Amethyst and Jasper's themes are extremely different, but are the only two with drums. This was an early hint that the two are the same type of gem.

Added DiffLines:

** Way back in ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'', players might have noticed that the Team Rocket HQ's theme bore a striking resemblence to Viridian Forest's theme. The two locations appear to be unconnected, until you learn that [[ItWasHisSled the leader of Team Rocket, Giovanni, is also the missing Gym Leader of Viridian Gym]]. It's the first piece of major foreshadowing towards the identity of the last Gym Leader.
