* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'', Big Boss begins the second and main storyline with two pieces of nifty but largely useless equipment, a suicide pill and an antidote which can be strategically used to play dead. As the player gets better camouflage packs and weapons it becomes less and less useful to the point where the player has no real need to use either until a certain boss fight later [[spoiler:where Big Boss is killed while in the world of the dead and the player has to use the antidote to 'wake up' to progress in the game.]]

* The first season of ''StarBlazers / SpaceBattleshipYamato'' was fairly episodic in nature, and usually involved the Gamilons trying a particular plan or gizmo against the heroes which would not turn up again. One episode involved a tract of space laced with floating space mines. Another episode had a teleportation device that could make a Gamilon battleship appear out of nowhere. In the second season, long after we'd forgotten about both, Desslok brilliantly combined the two by teleporting a mess of space mines directly in front of the ship's WaveMotionGun, so they can't fire it without blowing up their own ship. Clever guy, Desslok.

Fixing typos.
* Shortly after the end of her [[DayInTheLimelight arc]] we find out that Erza, who we saw in an earlier chapter of ''Manga/FairyTail'' loosing an eye when she was young, got a fake magic eye as a replacement. Because of this she only receives half the blast from a petrification gaze and is easily broken out the spell. After about another arc people forget she ever lost an eye at all, until she uses the fake one to see through an illusion.

* In pre-ComicBook/{{Crisis|on Infinite Earths}} ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}'' comics, a minor SilverAge story involved Superman gathering kryptonite from around the world, forming it into a small ''island'' in the ocean (there were a ''lot'' of kryptonite meteorites in those days!), and then propelling the whole thing into outer space to get rid of it. Still, it was the SilverAge, so kryptonite kept turning up on Earth despite this. Years later, DCComics decided to stop using kryptonite as an easy plot device, so they had a freak accident destroy all the kryptonite on Earth, and the Superman comics went for a while with no (or at least fewer) stories involving the stuff. Writers missed it though, so years after ''that,'' they had the long-forgotten "Superman Island" of kryptonite return from space and scatter the stuff all over the world again.
