* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqKAzGadmYo Boat Comedy]] did a sketch where people at an antiques show grossly mishandle a fancy loaded flintlock pistol "owned by Anton Chekhov" with various gunshot-like noises happening over and over again as incidental events. It plays on the trope by deliberately averting it again and again. The gun never fires.

* Both subverted and parodied in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G19jSMFtURI one episode]] of [[DrAshens Ashen's Tech Dump]] when, after showing off a highly toxic action figure sealed in a glass case with a biohazard sticker on it, he blatantly sticks it so that it's balancing precariously on the front of the desk and continues with the episode. When the case spends the whole episode without falling off, he finally just reaches out and pushes it off the desk himself.

* Mocked in WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick's review of ''{{Showgirls}}''. During Nella's song at the end, she mentions the Chekhov's Stairs (that the lead pushed someone down at the climax of the film) that have been there since Act One.

* During the 2012 campaign of WebVideo/D20Live, [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] makes sure to have his character, Tandem, put a piece of glassware in a small sack and crush it to chunks. Later on in the game, when the party encounters are mutated man-giant, Tandem's first action is to [[EyeScream throw the crushed glass in his face]].

* During their altercation in a flashback sequence in Episode 2 of ''WebVideo/NightwingTheSeries'', Dick attempts to slug Bruce in the face, only for Bruce to block the attack and use a spinning counterattack that stops just short of Dick's neck; Bruce does this to prove his point that Dick's not yet ready to go solo. Nightwing later uses the exact same maneuver [[spoiler:to win his rematch with Deathstroke in Episode 5]].

* ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'':
** Taking pictures of the floating cats is deadly. Established over a year before firing in episode 48.
** Also the list of seemingly random items that was given out by the Secret Police for summary memorization to grant protection from something. Fired over 2 years later in Episode 57, aptly titled "The List". [[spoiler:It was just a drill, fortunately for everyone that forgot it.]]
** Cecil's being auctioned off in Episode 37. The gun doesn't fire until over a year later in Episode 63 when Cecil, [[spoiler:after having saved Dana's life several times without his remembering doing so,]] wonders if [[spoiler:Dana was the one who bought him]].

* ''Website/SfDebris'' has one in his review of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion'' where he begins the review with reading parts of the tale of the Soldier and Death in which a soldier manage to trick Death into a magic bag. He returns to it later when [[spoiler: Homura forcibly split Madoka from Madokami]].
-->'''Chuck:''' (In the beginning of the review) Soon he laid there in his own sickbed, waiting for the arrival of the woman, who was the embodiment of Death, to come and take him away. And when he saw her there, near his head, coming to take away the soul of this old soldier, he asked her: ''Do you know what this is?''. She looked and said: ''It's a sack''. ''Well if it's a sack,'' he said ''Get into it!'' And immediately she was trapped within the sack of the soldier, who bound it tightly and felt quite, quite pleased with himself.
-->'''Chuck:''' (Later) The moment has finally arrived. After all the endless fighting [[spoiler: Madoka has come to claim this soul, and all this old soldier can say to her is: ''If it's a sack, Get into it!'']]
This list shows the last 10 events of 47. Show all.
