* 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...

** One of the many bits of mad science is the Tinasky Case. We see Helen B. Narbon invited to the Mad Science Symposium to lecture on it. We see Dr. Lupin Madblood getting upset about it. It isn't until the last couple arcs that we realize it is '''the''' Chekhov's Gun of the entire seven years of the comic... and why.

** Tuuri's family portrait. On his first morning with the crew, Reynir gets a good look at it before getting sent back to bed by Mikkel, who suspects he did't sleep much during the night. While dreaming, Reynir walks into Lalli's protected mage area, gets thrown out of it, and gets lost trying to get back to his own area, accidentally walking into the area of a third mage in the process. Having seen the portrait is what makes Reynir realize that the third mage in question is Tuuri's older brother.

** Reynir's paper-drawn anti-ghost runes. He gives them to everyone right before the visit to the shop in Chapter 11. It's not until Chapter 12 that anyone gets close enough to a ghost to see if they actually work.

* Lisa's co-worker Valerie in ''Webcomic/{{Sunstone}}'' was shown early on in the story to be in a relationship with another woman, proving Lisa wrong about her initial impression that she was judgemental about Lisa's own growing relationship with Ally. In Chapter Five, [[spoiler:it is Valerie that Lisa talks to as she's preparing to confess her feelings about Ally to her, and is the one who Lisa actually tells that she loves Ally, something she could never tell Anne, Cassie or anyone else]].
