* In ''Anime/YugiohArcV'' it's better if you just assume that any given conversation, object or even joke will become important later on, [[spoiler: Taken {{Up to Eleven}} and to an almost meta level after episodes 126-127 where it's revealed that literally all the dimensions they have visited where once one, and as such said world is basically a mash up of all the details, structure, summon methods and technology shown on each one of them]]

** Also, while not necessarily an example of Chekhov's Armoury per se, it's also interesting to pay attention to how Akamatsu handled the fighters and supernatural characters in the earlier chapters. For example, the characters who were left out of the Dodgeball game[[note]]All of them, excepting the cheerleaders, are extreme {{BadAss}}es who could have won the match singlehanded[[/note]]. The most extreme of these foreshadows was the class roster in the first chapter.

* FanFic/LightningOnlyStrikesOnce features numerous cases of throwaway events or items that later become significant. In one case, Lexa collects unused tranq darts that the Mountain Men fire at their targets and uses them to assassinate Charles Pike. In another, Clarke purposely infects herself with the hemorrhagic fever virus in order to infect the Mountain Men and make them think they're dying of radiation exposure.

** Both ''Literature/{{Elantris}}'' and ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}},'' have fully stocked armories of their own. ''Literature/TheWayOfKings is the first book of a ten book series and has already had a number of Chekhov's Guns that were fired, and many other things that are probably loaded Chekhov's Guns that will fire in future books.

* TerryPratchett is good at sneaking plot relevant details into apparent throw-away gags, where we won't notice them until it's too late. ''Discworld/LordsAndLadies'' is especially full of this: [[spoiler:almost every goofy detail of the kingdom described in the first half of the book is weaponized against the elves in the second half]].

* ''WesternAniamtion/LeroyAndStitch'': Lilo's going away presents: a tiki necklace for Stitch, which helps to identify Leroy as a Stitch impostor, because Stitch promised to never take it off; Jumba's "Aloha Oe" record, which he plays while creating and programming the Leroy experiment for Dr. Hämsterviel, turns out to be a hidden shut-down mechanism that deactivates Leroy and his clones; and Pleakley's rock paperweight, which disrupts a black hole and turns it into a warp back to Earth once Stitch chews it down to a proper weight.

* ''FanFic/{{Fractured}}'', a ''MassEffect''[=/=]''StarWars''[[spoiler:[=/=]VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'']] [[MassiveMultiplayerCrossover crossover]] and its [[FanFic/SovereignGFCOrigins sequel]] are loaded to the gills with this trope. That character/planet/technology/side-comment you barely remember? Yeah, its relevance is being revealed now, fifteen chapters later. May cross into internal ContinuityPorn.

* FalloutEquestria is an epic Checkhov's Armory, written by an author who has professed ChekhovsGun as a favorite trope, stating that "everything is either a ChekhovsGun or a RedHerring."

* ''Manga/BlackButler'' has one, but special mention goes to the murder mystery arc. True to the genre, it gets an entire ChekhovsArmoury of it's own.
