The Noodle Incident is something from the past that is sometimes referred to but never explained, with the implication that [[CrazyAwesome it's just too ludicrous for words]]--or perhaps too offensive for depiction--and the reality that any explanation would fall short of audience expectations. Questions about it are often met with [[YouDoNOTWantToKnow "You Don't Want To Know…"]] Persisting is a good way to press a character's BerserkButton.

Compare with CrypticBackgroundReference, InJoke, NoodleImplements, SecondHandStorytelling, TakeOurWordForIt, ThatMysteriousThing, and WhatDidIDoLastNight Reminiscing about a Noodle Incident by the people involved can result in LostInTransmission for an outsider. Compare and contrast OffscreenMomentOfAwesome, where the off-screen incident would have been better on-screen. See also CowTools. Enough such incidents create a character who has SeenItAll. If a Noodle Incident is essential to solving a mystery, it's a RiddleForTheAges. If it results in the person/people involved being banished from wherever it happened, they've become PersonaNonGrata. And if, many episodes or installments later, we finally get to see the incident and all the details about it (at least one TV series season, book volume, or film sequel has to be in the gap), the ensuing new episode/installment becomes the ResolvedNoodleIncident. See also GreatOffscreenWar. Contrast ObliviousMockery, where characters talk about an event they don't know happened but the ''viewer'' does (most of the time).

In SpyFiction or similar tropes, the Noodle Incident is usually referred to by a place's name. "This is just like Budapest!" "Remember Helsinki?" "God, it's Rio de Janeiro all over again." Sometimes this is elaborated upon, but usually not.
