* In the horror series ''ComicBook/CleanRoom'' a demon collects all the sharp objects in Chloe's house and positions them point-up in her bathtub.

* In the second issue of [[ComicBook/SecretSix Villains United]], one of the miniseries leading up to ''ComicBook/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.

* 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.
