Dramatic Irony

Definition:

The audience knows more about the plot and what's about to happen.

Examples:

1) In home alone we see Kevin set traps around his house that the bad guys don't see. The viewers get to see what's about to happen before it really happens.

2) In Avengers Infinity war Iron man and his crew plot a surprise attack on Thanos. We as viewers know what's about to happen but The antagonist has no idea.
