** In 1105, [[spoiler:Hilgya comes back... with Durkon's child. The last time we saw her was in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0084.html 84]], back in 2004.]] This might be the longest setup in webcomic history, beating even the 8-bit Theater example below by 4 years.

* Lampshaded with a stealth [[Pun]] in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary''. When Tagon's new ship, the ''Cynthetic Certainty'', is under fire at Urtheep Industries, Tagon orders the ship to fire her as-yet-untested main gun. He suggests it can be something on her bucket list she can "check off"; [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2017-07-23 the next frame]] shows the huge letters "CHEKHOV!" behind the gun's firing.

* Recent (July 2013) pages of ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' featured a nigh-unstoppable antagonist whose omnipotence-in-context relied on his mathematical assessment of his environment; in practice, this meant that the - famously dull-witted - hero was unable to defeat him. The heroes attempted to rearrange matters by rewriting the villain's weakness - defined as an impossibly high number, which was impossible to exploit - to something manageable, namely the number 38. Initially he was attacked by another version of the hero from 'reality 38', but that one was defeated by yet another version. The hero is about to be overcome - cue a panel from the strip from ''2005'' in which we were told he knows 38 ways to kill someone with only his thumb...
