** A more specific example is if you visit Romani Ranch on the third day. Romani's facial expression is bound to bring up some questions.

* The ''SilentHill'' series. When a character first enters the town, they notice that no one is around and even before they find their first monster, they know there's something wrong there.

* In ''[[VideoGame/PokemonColosseum Pokemon XD: Gale Of Darkness]]'', your return to peaceful Phenac Town from the first game is deliberately designed to invoke this. New players won't see what's wrong, but people who've played ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' will take notice that all of the [=NPCs=] are acting contrary to their personalities in the previous game, and the roaming Pokemon are also all wrong (for example, the jogger lapping the fountain has a Duskull following him instead of a Castform). It's unsettling, but at the same time one has to wonder if the programmers just plain didn't look into how things were in the first game. And then you find out that [[spoiler: Every single person in town had been kidnapped and replaced by a disguised Cipher member. [[ParanoiaFuel Yikes.]]]] After you've solved that problem, Phenac returns to exactly how you remember it from ''Colosseum''. Well played, Genius Sonority.
