* ''TotallySpies!'' does this every single episode, as a James Bond reference.

* ''SwordOfTheStars'': There are tonnes of hints about the true nature of [[spoiler: the Suul'ka]] littered in the lore. It looks so obvious in hindsight.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheDivineCities'', several items from the list of impounded miraculous items stashed away in the Unmentionable Warehouse are mentioned in passing, but become vitally important to the story later. The villains are using [[spoiler: a magical door]] to access the vault that contains more of said items, and they use [[spoiler:threads from a flying carpet to create a fleet of nigh untouchable airships]].

* Manga/ItsNotMyFaultImNotPopular Uses this regularly. Only enough characters to count on one hand haven't become recurring characters, and even then they still reappear as background characters

Added DiffLines:

* Even for an adventure game, the fourth game in the ''{{VideoGame/Deponia}}'' series, ''Doomsday Deponia'', is particularly bad about this. There are many, many, many minor details whose full implications only become apparent later (sometimes much, much later) in the game.

* In part one of the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' season 5 finale/season 6 premier Time's Arrow, Data and Captain Picard are looking over all the items unearthed in the archeological dig near San Francisco. In part 2 we learn they're all left behind by [[MarkTwain Samuel Clemens]] and other characters. Notable are the revolver, which Clemens threatens the crew with, the pocket watch, which Clemens makes a specific point of leaving behind in the end, and Data's head.

* This is a staple of many cartoons aimed at very young children. ''DoraTheExplorer'', which started the trend, actually averts the trope slightly by sometimes carrying a few items she doesn't need.

* 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.
This list shows the last 10 events of 108. Show all.
