* In ''Film/PoisonIvy'', Chekhov's Gun takes the form of a melancholy piano piece the heroine, Sylvie, composes and records for her mother as a birthday present, which the latter plays as she supposedly jumps to her death. Later, [[FilleFatale Ivy]] convinces Sylvie to take a ride with her in her mother's old sportscar as a final goodbye. As they drive, Ivy absently begins to hum the tune, leading Sylvie to realize Ivy was present when her mother died...

*** The business card for Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters that Quicksilver received (or stole) in the last movie helps him find the mansion.
*** The fact that [[spoiler:electrical fields interfere with teleportation comes into play during the cage fight and on Stryker's helicopter. Near the end, when Apocalypse tries to teleport away, Storm's lightning attacks disrupt him and gets him killed.]]

** Subverted early in the first film -- a decorative shield-and-swords hangs over a fireplace in the governor's mansion in the grand swashbuckling fashion. When Elizabeth later goes to draw one of the swords to defend herself against invading pirates, she ends up pulling the whole thing down off the wall by accident -- the swords are firmly attached to the shield and ''won't come loose''.

** An interesting one comes in the form of the sword Will forged for Norrington. At the end of the third film, Will is killed with this sword.

** The mosasaurus in ''Film/JurassicWorld'' that's introduced early in the film doesn't seem to have much to do through most of the movie until the Indominous Rex needed eating.

* Several examples of Chekhov's Guns can be found in ''Film/EnterTheDragon''. In one scene, Roper is taken through a medieval torture museum room by Mr. Han, which includes a glass display case with several replacement weapon-hands. One of them, a metal claw, is used during the big fight with BruceLee in the end. In addition, during the big fight (which takes place in said museum room, acting as ''another'' ChekhovsGun), Mr. Han tries throwing a spear at Lee, which goes through a wall and into the HallOfMirrors beyond. The climax of the movie involves Lee kicking Han right into the spear and [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice Impaling Him With Extreme Prejudice]]. In fact, the advice that Bruce takes about "smashing the image" in order to defeat Han was itself a ChekhovsGun given by Bruce's master near the very beginning of the film.

* In ''Film/AlienVsPredator'', one scene in the beginning informs us that the waters of the Antarctic are so cold you'd die in 3 minutes. Now guess how they took out the alien Queen.
