* Creator/DonRosa's ''ComicBook/TheBlackKnight'': In "The Black Knight Glorps Again", early on in the story Gyro Gearloose carefully makes a small opening in the block of concrete that the dissolving black knight armor was kept in because it continued to destroy the air molecules around it, creating a near vacuum that they would otherwise have been sucked inside of. Later on Donald and Lusene (who's wearing the armor again) are both locked inside a containment room with Lusene threatening to dissolve Donald unless Scrooge lets him out. Donald remembers what Gyro had told him earlier and keeps the black knight distracted long enough for the oxygen in the room to run out and knock them both unconscious so Scrooge and his nephews can safely remove Lusene's armor.

* ComicBook/LesbianZombiesFromOuterSpace: In Issue #1 Ace is searching for a video camera in a cabinet, and a shotgun conspicuously falls off one of the shelves. He pays it no attention, but the weapon resurfaces in Issue #2 when Gwen tumbles down the stairs and crashes into the cabinet, knocking the shotgun loose once more. And at just the right time.

* The early 1990s MarvelComics series ''{{Sleepwalker}}'' featured the title alien's Imaginator, a teleportation device that can be used by the Sleepwalkers to teleport almost anywhere they can imagine, and to imprison the monsters they capture. Sleepwalker becomes trapped in Rick Sheridan's mind when Rick mistakes the Imaginator for a weapon and takes it away from him, before the device is later retrieved by Cobweb for the [[EvilPlan invasion of Earth and framing Sleepwalker as the invasion's leader.]]

* In the second issue of [[SecretSix Villains United]], one of the miniseries leading up to ''InfiniteCrisis'', we see a pair of weapons mounted on Scandal's wall when she's writing a love letter. It's the first subtle hint that she is a DarkActionGirl instead of the non-combatant MiddleManagementMook she had appeared to be to that point.

* In an early issue of the AffectionateParody title ''QuantumAndWoody'', the titular duo set their differing approaches to crimefighting: Quantum has [[CrazyPrepared a fully-laden utility belt and a multi-functional outfit]], while Woody carries, quote, "[a] 9mm Beretta and a Zippo lighter". The Beretta sees occasional use throughout the series, while the Zippo doesn't get another mention until one of the last issues of the Akklaim run, [[spoiler:when both of them are [[DeathTrap locked in a cage being slowly lowered into a pool of toxic waste]], by [[TheJuggernaut a superpowered mercenary they had just tried, and failed, to stop with an all-or-nothing energy blast and]] ''[[TheJuggernaut a nuclear explosion]]''. While Quantum recites a prayer, Woody, blinded by the fumes, desperately tries to strike the lighter to see in the "dark". The flame ignites those same fumes and blasts the cage and its occupants to (relative) safety]].
