Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'': Had Chekhov not existed, this show could have been the TropeNamer. Bojack was one of the first shows to account for the rise of binge-watching in it's development process, with each season being released at once. This allowed the writers to fill early episodes with hints about plot points that occur later in the season, resulting in a byzantine web of set-ups and payoffs that few shows can rival.

Added DiffLines:

* Hitchcock's classic ''Film/DialMForMurder''. Nearly ''everything'' either mentioned or shown to the audience in the first half of the movie becomes vital to the protagonists figuring out Tony Wendiss's plot to have his [[ThePerfectCrime wife killed by someone he was blackmailing.]]

* ''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]].

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
