Yakuza 0 - Ogita Dance Battle:
In the Visionary Fortune-Teller sub-story of Yakuza 0, a fortune teller quizzes Kiryu about what will happen in his future, with all of her predictions actually happening to him at different points in the Yakuza series. She tells Kiryu he would go on to have a child he loves who he needs to put a price on (referencing the events of the first Yakuza game), that he would have eight children (referencing the orphans he would adopt in Yakuza 3), driving a taxi in Fukuoka (referencing Yakuza 5), and that he would take the blame for someone else's crime (again referencing the first Yakuza game.)
