** [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=388 "To Say Nothing of the Crisco Incident."]]
** Another one is used in a [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=402 this comic]]. Apparently, Pintsize has a large file in his hard drive of all the chaos he's caused. #472 is his favorite, because "Those preschoolers will remember that day for the rest of their lives." Knowing Pintsize, it's some kind of unholy wacky terror.
** A [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=530 guest strip]] also had another Pintsize NoodleIncident: "[[NoTimeToExplain There's not time to explain]] but we're out of eggs and the cops are on the way."

----

* ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' has a number of these:
** A few involve Red Mage's book (in which he's writing, in ''D&D'' language, the things he's learning from the rest of the Light Warriors). The few pages we see begin with such things as "... my horse, I wouldn't have spent that year in college," and "that's when they made me their king."
** These are references to other Noodle Incidents. "If it wasn't for my horse, I wouldn't have spent that year in college." is part of the Lewis Black's routine.
** There is also [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2003/08/16/episode-320-extrications this]] incident which occurs just off screen.
** Black Mage also alludes to quite a few less-than-family-friendly events in the past during the comic strip:
--->'''Black Mage:''' Thief, your career as our leader reminds me of watching a blind child stumble through an uneven room filled with knives and tiger pits. Only not as interesting to watch because you can always push the kid if it looks like he'd make it. Who's mom's favorite '''now'''?!\\
'''Red Mage:''' Wait. You murdered your own blind brother?\\
'''Black Mage:''' It would have been '''cruel''' to let him live after what I did to his eyes.
* In ''Webcomic/AcornGrove'', when Josh the joey had a puppy. [[http://acorngrove.comicgenesis.com/d/20050512.html]]
* ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja''
** The comic has never used Dr. [=McNinja=]'s first name. Originally just a case of NoNameGiven, this is later handwaved in a conversation between Dr. [=McNinja=] and his clone (who goes by Old ... he has a farm, you see).
--->'''Dr. [=McNinja=]:''' Hey! You uh... You never told anybody our name, did you?\\
'''Old:''' Oh, no way!\\
'''Dr. [=McNinja=]:''' 'Cause, you know... the wizard.\\
'''Old:''' Oh, I know.
*** Chapter 29 gives us the full story: [[spoiler: Doc's grandfather sealed away a ghost wizard that was about to kill Young Doc (because Young Doc was [[BullyingADragon kind of]] [[LeeroyJenkins an idiot]]). He used Doc's name and [[CastFromHitPoints his own life force]] to cast the spell. Doc is the only person who [[LaserGuidedAmnesia remembers his name]] and if he ever says it, the seal will be broken.]]
** Also, when a university-age Dr M. is talking to Benjamin Franklin about cloning:
--->'''Dr. [=McNinja=]:''' [[CloningBlues A clone of my dad tried to kill him and take his place once.]] But Dad tricked it into believing my mom was a helicopter rotor. That took care of that!
** [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/17p12/ Apparently something happened to Dan's dad]].
--->'''Mitzi:''' Who would call us on Katakana? Your dad's still dead, right?\\
'''Dan:''' Well, we'll never really know for sure, but I doubt he'd just call.
* ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfSueAndKathryn'' implies part of the reason everyone is so afraid of Sue is because of the block party massacre last year. All we know about that is that Sue claims she was "totes provoked".
* Grant Kyokasho of ''Webcomic/AngelMoxie'' would prefer to keep [[http://www.venisproductions.com/angelmoxie/archives/1/5/153.html "That incident with the water hoses and ketchup in in St. Louis"]] to himself.
* ''Webcomic/{{Angels 2200}}'': The "sexual exploits" Whiskey is [[http://www.angels2200.com/angels/2007/09/10/part-6-comic-40/ talking to Pastor Sullivan about]] are never explained, which is probably for the better...
* In an early [[http://www.applevalleycomic.com/2009/hubris-in-love/ Apple Valley]], Doctor Hubris mentions that he is not allowed to enter Indiana ever again following the "Evil Corn" incident.
* [[http://boyaurus.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/46415 Aurus]] is traumatized from an unspecified event that involves jiggling and makes him feel dirty but does not include sex.



* ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'':
** The ''Calvin and Hobbes'' incident is [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff200/fv00125.htm referred to]], with Sawtooth reminding Sam of the incident, saying "You know, the one you blamed on the spiky-haired boy with the stuffed tiger." Florence apparently gets to hear the details, but readers aren't privy to that particular piece of conversation. This is actually fitting, because on at least one occasion Calvin claims to have been framed by aliens for assorted mayhem.
** Florence also found herself in [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1800/fc01729.htm such an incident]] in college: It involved herself, a forklift, a graduation ceremony, and her go-to-sleep-instantly remote control.
** There is even a Noodle incident with NoodleImplements, The royal family is not too happy with Sam due to an incident involving a zeppelin, a "Loop the loop" maneuver, and pudding. Lots and lots of pudding. This indirectly lead him to leave his home planet
** [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2000/fc01971.htm "Lost Truck Lake"]]
** Not very enigmatic, but "[[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1700/fc01665.htm they looked so cute...]]"
** "This isn't the first time I've had to negotiate while duct-taped to a chair."
** [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1200/fv01131.htm Sam and Helix have bad luck combining works of art and ignition sources]].
** When Florence is woken up in her pajamas, tied to a chair, with two angry humans and a robot standing over her, she mentally notes that it's the fourth worst awakening she's ever had.
** "If I tie your facial tentacles to the overhead rack, it will take you three minutes and forty seven seconds to get loose." "That is something I wish you didn't know from experience."
** Ultimately, Sam might as well be [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2900/fc02891.htm made of these]]. This time, it's the reason why he's running from a mob of police officers. (It's not all bad. Being a one-squid crime spree, he almost single-tentacledly keeps them in business.)
* ''Webcomic/{{EVIL}}'': In an [[http://evil.thecomicseries.com/comics/5 early comic]], Gabriel blackmails Jezebel with pictures from "the waffle incident."

to:

* ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'':
Something happened to ''Webcomic/BeaverAndSteve'' [[http://www.beaverandsteve.com/index.php?comic=149 last Halloween]].
* ''Webcomic/BramAndVlad'' has a few, almost all of them regarding the Van Helsings' dabblings in Mad Science.
** The ''Calvin and Hobbes'' incident is [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff200/fv00125.htm referred to]], with Sawtooth reminding Sam [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Bram_and_Vlad/5476760/ Ellen's list]] of the incident, saying "You know, weirdest things she saw the one you blamed on Van Helsings doing has five entries censored 'for the spiky-haired boy with sake of the stuffed tiger." Florence apparently gets to hear children'. Two of those even have exclamation marks sticking out of the details, but readers aren't privy to censored part.
** [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Bram_and_Vlad/5473003/ This reaction]] of the Third (Bram's father) suggests
that particular piece of conversation. This he knows how slashed eyes look like, but ''how'' he knows is actually fitting, because on at least one occasion Calvin claims to have been framed by aliens for assorted mayhem.
anyone's guess.
** Florence also found herself in [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1800/fc01729.htm such [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Bram_and_Vlad/5469296/ This]] makes you wonder what an incident]] in college: It involved herself, a forklift, a graduation ceremony, and her go-to-sleep-instantly remote control.
** There is even a Noodle incident with NoodleImplements,
"eventful" Sunday Club party looks like.
* ''WebComic/BrokenPlotDevice'' gives us [[http://www.brokenplotdevice.com/2010/04/05/the-bagel-incident/
The royal family is not too happy with Sam due to an incident involving a zeppelin, a "Loop the loop" maneuver, and pudding. Lots and lots Bagel Incident]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Cheer}}'': Alex King denies all knowledge
of pudding. This indirectly lead him to leave his home planet
** [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2000/fc01971.htm "Lost Truck Lake"]]
** Not very enigmatic, but "[[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1700/fc01665.htm they looked so cute...]]"
** "This isn't the first time I've had to negotiate while duct-taped to a chair."
** [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1200/fv01131.htm Sam and Helix have bad luck combining works of art and ignition sources]].
** When Florence is woken up in her pajamas, tied to a chair, with two angry humans and a robot standing over her, she mentally notes
how [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2008-06-25 that it's moose got in the fourth worst awakening she's ever had.
** "If I tie your facial tentacles to the overhead rack, it will take you three minutes and forty seven seconds to get loose." "That is something I wish you didn't know from experience."

** Back in the "Warrior for Hire" arc, an old friend of Dans Dan's [[http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Vol_128.php reminiscences]]:



* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'':
** Tedd once managed to get himself banned from anywhere in the mall where one could buy [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2002-03-01 women's clothing]].
** The dimension hopping walrus.
--->'''Wolf:''' Agent Verres, do you remember the incident with the transdimensional walrus?\\
'''Verres:''' ''No'', Agent Wolf. I have somehow managed to ''forget'' that there was a dimension hopping ''walrus''.\\
'''Wolf:''' [[SarcasmBlind Right, well, there was this dimension hopping walrus...]]
** In a strip where Elliot finds out he's not as anonymous as he thinks, we get flashbacks to a number of previous events in the comic that people would remember him for. There's his [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=788 bully hunter tendencies]], his [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=20 fight against the Goo]], [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=955 his fight against the bloodgrem]], and, apparently, [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1732 a time a griffin approached him on the playground]].
--->'''Tedd:''' In retrospect, that griffin was probably noteworthy.\\
'''Elliot:''' ''She was just asking for directions!''
* ''Webcomic/EvilOverlordsUnited'' has, in the sequel at http://eou.comicgenesis.com/d/20100303.html, a reference to "a toilet plunger, a beaver, and 10 rolls of duck tape". When asked (http://www.dragoneers.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=16149#p16149), the reply was "YouDontWantToKnow"
* The web cartoon ''The God and Devil Show'' had the Devil whisper the definition of "gomorrahmy" into Marilyn Manson's ear, playing on the common gag where one brings up Sodom and Gomorrah, mentions "sodomy", and then implies "gomorrahmy" was even worse. [[NoodleImplements apparently it involved a petting zoo and toilet plungers]].
* In ''Webcomic/AcornGrove'', when Josh the joey had a puppy. [[http://acorngrove.comicgenesis.com/d/20050512.html]]
* The [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=404 Cursed Teapot Incident]] in ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''.
** Also, Zimmy's science fair entry. Antimony calls it an "abomination" and it is eventually taken away by men in hazmat suits despite Zimmy's insistence that it's not dangerous, but ''what'' she made was never explained.



** In the final confrontation between Obi-Wan and Anakin in Episode III, the comic manages to have a noodle accident actually happen within the story with Pete's cursed d20. However, since the comic always only shows whats happening in the game, we're only left to guess what's actually going on when they roll the die to see the outcome of Anakin trying to salto over Obi-Wan. Also a {{Noodle Implement|s}}; by the description it's not really a die at all, and rolling it ended in fire.
* ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'''s Zeta briefly mentions a certain [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/users/narbonic/082704And_meanwhile.jpg visit to the Mall of America]].
** ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'' is full of these gags, but the most literal one would be when Helen [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/narbonic/series.php?view=archive&chapter=10207 first went mad in an Italian bistro]] and caused nine casualties -- somehow -- with a "killer pesto."
*** Actually, that one's explained. You need to take the last word of the file names of every comic from November 12, 2002 onward, and they give you the text-only description of events from her lawyer's point of view.
** Artie the gerbil gets turned into a human, and then realizes he can go in person to accept his Macarthur 'genius' grant. He says: "It won't be like that time we sent Mell to lecture at Caltech for me!"
* In the Devo webcomic, "Tired O' Tourin'," Bob 1's reaction to Mark's FreakOut at the beginning of the story implies that something similar has happened before.
** It's never explained where Mark got a gun.
** It's also lampshaded that no one ever finds out how General Boy finally puts a stop to Mark's behaviour.

* ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'''s Zeta briefly mentions According to a certain ''Deep Fried'' story, Beepo and Roadkill are bound together by a terrible secret that they can never tell anyone, and for which Roadkill can never, ''ever'' forgive Beepo. The only explanation we get is:
--->'''Beepo:''' Hey! That gross out contest was ''your'' idea!
* The Hyena adoption ceremony in ''Webcomic/{{Digger}}'' consists of several complicated steps, one of which is described by Boneclaw Mother as "that stupid thing with the cactus spines".
* In ''Webcomic/DragonTails'':
-->'''Corlis''': Well Moppy thinks it's a Kaar'Latch, a giant psychic five-eyed exoskeleton clad creature that is said to feast on the souls of young dragons.
-->'''Lemuel''': Yeah, but Moppy thinks '''everything''' wants to feed on young dragon souls these days.
-->'''Corlis''': Well, he was right about your sandwich wasn't he?
* ''Webcomic/DresdenCodak'': "Remember when Reverse Moses parted the city to escape Aqua-Pharaoh?"
** Much later, Kimiko states that she's never been convicted of a felony in the state Nephilopolis is in, and insists that she gave the bones back. Then she gets distracted before explaining exactly what that means.
* At some point prior to the start of the story in ''{{Webcomic/Drowtales}}'', [[TheAce Laele'aell Val'Sarghress]] was (apparently) possessed by a demon and an attempted exorcism resulted in her becoming an EmptyShell, which created a situation where the Sarghress clan had no heir apparent and made her mother Quain'tana resort to [[MoralEventHorizon desperate measures]]. There was going to be a story at one point clarifying what exactly happened but it was never made for unknown reasons.
* In the webcomic ''Webcomic/{{Earthsong}}'', Zaebos
[[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/users/narbonic/082704And_meanwhile.jpg visit earthsongsaga.com/vol2/28.html threatens]] to the Mall tell of America]].
** ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'' is full of these gags, but the most
Felucca's role in a literal one would be when Helen Noodle Incident.
* ''Webcomic/{{Enjuhneer}}'' found a way to
[[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/narbonic/series.php?view=archive&chapter=10207 enjuhneer.com/archives/315-noodle-incident subvert this trope.]]
* ''Webcomic/{{EVIL}}'': In an [[http://evil.thecomicseries.com/comics/5 early comic]], Gabriel blackmails Jezebel with pictures from "the waffle incident".
* ''Webcomic/EvilDiva'' [[http://www.evildivacomics.com/?p=806 threatens her mother with one]]. Vaguer than usual. All we know is that the threat to reveal it is enough to make the mother go up against [[{{Satan}} The Big Guy]]
** Probably has something to do with her mother's own family background, which Diva knows about because she read her mother's diary.
* ''Webcomic/EvilOverlordsUnited'' has, in the sequel at http://eou.comicgenesis.com/d/20100303.html, a reference to "a toilet plunger, a beaver, and 10 rolls of duck tape". When asked (http://www.dragoneers.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=16149#p16149), the reply was "YouDontWantToKnow".
* There's a reason Virus in ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow'' is officially [[http://exterminatusnow.comicgenesis.com/d/20070720.html prohibited]] from [[http://exterminatusnow.comicgenesis.com/d/20041001.html handling]] any vehicle larger than a pair of shoes. Not that the readers will ever know what it is.
** Then there's the horrible fate of Lothar's and Rogue's predecessors, Smitty and Jonesy. Even ''Eastwood and Virus'' feel bad about what happened to them.
--->'''Eastwood:''' Oh those poor sons of bitches...
** And [[http://exterminatusnow.co.uk/2005-01-21/comic/back-to-school/should-we-be-worried-for-our-lives/ the 'bean' incident]]. Aaand Lothar's story, which he would be better off keeping as one of these.
* Ichabod from ''Webcomic/FarOutThere'' tells Kiki about a very strange incident, but we only hear [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1080526/page-269-clearly-hes-devastated a small part of it]]. The rest of us will probably never know where that epileptic pig came from.
** Ichabod brings up [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1090124/page-295-i-have-no-idea-where-claires-gun-went another one]] later on. SHOULD he have known those Space Whales had "mommy issues"?
* In ''Webcomic/TheFourth'', we know that Skärva's great-grandfather and the first's partner did something to bring the curse upon Skärva's line, but every time WHAT they did otherwise naturally comes up in exposition, the speaker talks around it.
* ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'':
** The ''Calvin and Hobbes'' incident is [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff200/fv00125.htm referred to]], with Sawtooth reminding Sam of the incident, saying "You know, the one you blamed on the spiky-haired boy with the stuffed tiger."

** It's also lampshaded
mob of police officers. (It's not all bad. Being a one-squid crime spree, he almost single-tentacledly keeps them in business.)
* ''[[http://www.agameoffools.com A Game of Fools]]'': Tomato's main gimmick (besides repeated crossing of the MoralEventHorizon) is telling horrible, traumatizing stories of his bizarre, awful deeds, the most of which we only ever hear the last few sentences of.
-->'''Tomato:''' ...so, I tried to explain
that no one ever finds out how General Boy finally puts she DID give consent, but apparently that only applies when they're alive.
** Once Sylvester gets
a stop to Mark's behaviour.job as Tomato's... assistant, he gets in on the act too when [[http://agameoffools.com/comic_146.html telling work stories]].

** Much later, Kimiko states that she's never been consisted of a felony in the state Nephilopolis is in, and insists that she gave the bones back. Then she gets distracted before explaining exactly what that means.
* [[Webcomic/MegaTokyo Piro and Largo's]] roadtrip to Canada: "Hey come on... we got handcuffed by real Mounties! That was cool."
* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent''
** Sven's friend Wil leaves a pornographic piece of poetry in the coffee shop. Wil has the "brilliant" idea of getting Sven to go apologize for him, and the following conversation takes place.
-->'''Sven:''' What am I supposed to say? "I'm sorry that my friend is a creepy motherfucker, but will you please go on a date with him anyway?"\\
'''Wil:''' Remember '''Elenore'''?\\
'''Sven:''' Aw man, don't call in that favor now. Please.\\
'''Wil:''' I'm calling it in.
** Another one is used in a [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=402 much earlier comic]]. Apparently, Pintsize has a large file in his hard drive of all the chaos he's caused. #472 is his favorite, because "Those preschoolers will remember that day for the rest of their lives." Knowing Pintsize, it's some kind of unholy wacky terror.
** Not to mention the title of another one: [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=388 "To Say Nothing of the Crisco Incident"]]
** A [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=530 guest strip]] also had another Pintsize NoodleIncident: "[[NoTimeToExplain There's not time to explain]] but we're out of eggs and the cops are on the way."
** And, of course, with the reappearance of Steve we have only vague hints into what secret agent-ish things he was doing while he was gone.
** Or [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1499 #1499]].
** June 14th, 1987 [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1567 Never Happened]].

** Marten's dad gets remarried, and the [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2405 entire reception]] is a Noodle Incident.
* In ''Webcomic/SeiyuuCrush'', we learn at the beginning that the CRUSH! agency was the only agency willing to hire Kaji "after what happened", but it isn't revealed what actually happened.
* In the webcomic ''Webcomic/{{Earthsong}}'', Zaebos [[http://www.earthsongsaga.com/vol2/28.html threatens]] to tell of Felucca's role in a literal Noodle Incident.
* ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' uses this a few times:
** Alluded to in strip [[http://xkcd.com/410/ #410]]. If you hover over the comic, the AltText says "This is nothing. I once lost my genetics, rocketry, and stripping licenses in a single incident." How genetics, rocketry, and stripping can be combined ''at all'' boggles the mind.
** And again in [[http://xkcd.com/521/ the 2008 Christmas Special]].
** And yet again in [[http://xkcd.com/541/ TED Talk]]. Though that one is so specific as to not leave much to the imagination ("The IAU ban came after the 'redefinition of "planet" to include the [[YourMom IAU president's mom]]' incident"). Most of the others were never explained.
** This [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/120/ What-If]] strip is composed mainly of various horrifying Noodle Incidents.
* Webcomic/OzyAndMillie had a different one of these for each joke that calls for one.
* Something happened to ''Webcomic/BeaverAndSteve'' [[http://www.beaverandsteve.com/index.php?comic=149 last Halloween]].
* Happens in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' when Riff [[http://www.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=010210 unveils his new robot]], the Mark-5, even though only the Mark-1 and Mark-2 had been shown previously.
-->'''Torg:''' Why did you jump to "Mark-5"? I don't remember Mark-3 and 4!\\
'''Riff:''' I don't want to talk about it.\\
'''Torg:''' And why are lots 189 through 205 closed for repair?\\
'''Riff:''' I don't want to talk about it.\\
'''Torg:''' And lot 206 looks like it's been partially liquefied!\\
'''Riff:''' ''Drop it already!''
** Happened again, with the Mark-19 robot.
* In ''Webcomic/DragonTails'':
-->'''Corlis''': Well Moppy thinks it's a Kaar'Latch, a giant psychic five-eyed exoskeleton clad creature that is said to feast on the souls of young dragons.
-->'''Lemuel''': Yeah, but Moppy thinks '''everything''' wants to feed on young dragon souls these days.
-->'''Corlis''': Well, he was right about your sandwich wasn't he?
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''
** [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0050.html "Are you hitting on me? Because, whatever you heard about what happened at Summer Camp-]]"
** Strip [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0488.html #488]], a deva reviewing Roy's life mentions that Roy's grade school principal had quite a few choice things to say about him, leading Roy to exclaim, "It was just a joke! We didn't know Mrs. [=McNulty=] was allergic to weasels!"
** A few comics later, the scene cuts in on a story (an apparently humorous one to boot) that Roy is telling the same archon.
--->'''Roy:''' --so I'm like, "But you told me we didn't want to turn right!" and Durkon says, "No, I told ye we dinnae want ta turn '''wights'''!" Man, we had to make a lot of Fortitude saves the next day.
** Two on [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0700.html the same page]]: the [=MitD=] isn't allowed in Tsukiko's room because of 'that thing with the peanut butter.' And the crypt thing incident with Tsukiko (though this one is rather transparent, especially given her...[[ILoveTheDead inclinations]]).
** Tarquin stil hasn't figured out how Thog [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0822.html managed to flood his palace with lemon pudding]].
** The incident with the Rajah. All we know about it is that Tarquin spent the entire coronation with his mouth full of creamed spinach, as the punchline to some elaborate joke.
** Nale refers to ''something'' happening when he was five [[spoiler:that drove him to spend twenty-odd years planning to murder Malack]]. Given Nale's animus at the time it seems likely it either involved damaged pride, childhood trauma, or a mix of the two.
** Just a little later, Vaarsuvius is shortly banished to the Semi-Elemental Plane of Ranch Dressing. When rescued some strips later, he is asked if he had any exciting adventures. Cue a CutAwayGag about him saving Princess Gootrude from the sauce dragon for Prince Oozalot. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] as V responds he had no "exciting" adventures, to which Belkar [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaks the fourth wall]] and replies that "Hey, maybe we will see that as a bonus story in one of the books." V then invokes this trope.
* Every single Comments On A Postcard strip from ''Webcomic/{{Mezzacotta}}'' is based on this principle.
* ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'' made reference to the original NoodleIncident with their own, [[http://irregularwebcomic.net/418.html here]]
* There's a reason Virus in ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow'' is officially [[http://exterminatusnow.comicgenesis.com/d/20070720.html prohibited]] from [[http://exterminatusnow.comicgenesis.com/d/20041001.html handling]] any vehicle larger than a pair of shoes. Not that the readers will ever know what it is.
** Then there's the horrible fate of Lothar's and Rogue's predecessors, Smitty and Jonesy. Even ''Eastwood and Virus'' feel bad about what happened to them.
--->'''Eastwood:''' Oh those poor sons of bitches...
** And [[http://exterminatusnow.co.uk/2005-01-21/comic/back-to-school/should-we-be-worried-for-our-lives/ the 'bean' incident]]. Aaand Lothar's story, which he would be better off keeping as one of these.



* ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' has a number of these:
** A few involve Red Mage's book (in which he's writing, in ''D&D'' language, the things he's learning from the rest of the Light Warriors). The few pages we see begin with such things as "... my horse, I wouldn't have spent that year in college," and "that's when they made me their king."
** These are references to other Noodle Incidents. "If it wasn't for my horse, I wouldn't have spent that year in college." is part of the Lewis Black's routine.
** There is also [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2003/08/16/episode-320-extrications this]] incident which occurs just off screen.
** Black Mage also alludes to quite a few less-than-family-friendly events in the past during the comic strip:
--->'''Black Mage:''' Thief, your career as our leader reminds me of watching a blind child stumble through an uneven room filled with knives and tiger pits. Only not as interesting to watch because you can always push the kid if it looks like he'd make it. Who's mom's favorite '''now'''?!\\
'''Red Mage:''' Wait. You murdered your own blind brother?\\
'''Black Mage:''' It would have been '''cruel''' to let him live after what I did to his eyes.
* The Macaroni Incident in ''Webcomic/LegostarGalactica''.
* ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'' suggests a slightly risque explanation of the original Incident, [[http://www.sinfest.net/view.php?date=2004-05-12 here]].
** Sinfest has a RunningGag series of strips called You Had to be There, devoted to this trope.
* The Hyena adoption ceremony in ''Webcomic/{{Digger}}'' consists of several complicated steps, one of which is described by Boneclaw Mother as "that stupid thing with the cactus spines."
* What, exactly, the lyrics of "that one about the lady and the sausagemaker" are in ''Webcomic/YetAnotherFantasyGamerComic'' will likely remain forever a secret. All we know are the reasons it was written ([[spoiler:to slander a woman the songwriter hit on and failed to score with]]) and that it takes about two years to clear the mental images out of one's head.
* Webcomic/{{Sandusky}} has the [[http://sandusky.comicgenesis.com/d/20061204.html railroad bridge incident]].
* Yeager in ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}'' invented an ''eighth deadly sin''. All we know about it is that Yeager found it entertaining and called it "blasphotrociterra-o-rama".
** In another strip he is confronted by four people he bullied as a child. Two of the incidents are pretty self explanatory but one is only described as ruining a girl's first date with a "fish catapult" and another is considered so heinous it is only referred to as "the cheese incident".
* In ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'', Vashiel had one where he took the rules of be a smither in his own hands that spending time on earth gave him nightmares about it.

to:

* ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' has The web cartoon ''The God and Devil Show'' had the Devil whisper the definition of "gomorrahmy" into Marilyn Manson's ear, playing on the common gag where one brings up Sodom and Gomorrah, mentions "sodomy", and then implies "gomorrahmy" was even worse. [[NoodleImplements apparently it involved a petting zoo and toilet plungers]].
* A rare almost-on-screen example in ''Webcomic/{{Godslave}}'' - we don't know just what trap Anpu sets up for Turner and Blacksmith's curses and electric flashes are the only clues.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'':
** Tedd once managed to get himself banned from anywhere in the mall where one could buy [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2002-03-01 women's clothing]].
** The dimension hopping walrus.
--->'''Wolf:''' Agent Verres, do you remember the incident with the transdimensional walrus?\\
'''Verres:''' ''No'', Agent Wolf. I have somehow managed to ''forget'' that there was a dimension hopping ''walrus''.\\
'''Wolf:''' [[SarcasmBlind Right, well, there was this dimension hopping walrus...]]

a number of these:

** Tarquin stil hasn't figured out how Thog [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0822.html managed to flood his palace with lemon pudding]].
** The incident with the Rajah. All we know about it is that Tarquin spent the entire coronation with his mouth full of creamed spinach, as the punchline to some elaborate joke.
** Nale refers to ''something'' happening
when wind demons drink]].he was five [[spoiler:that drove him to spend twenty-odd years planning to murder Malack]]. Given Nale's animus at the time it seems likely it either involved damaged pride, childhood trauma, or a mix of the two.
** Just a little later, Vaarsuvius is shortly banished to the Semi-Elemental Plane of Ranch Dressing. When rescued some strips later, he is asked if he had any exciting adventures. Cue a CutAwayGag about him saving Princess Gootrude from the sauce dragon for Prince Oozalot. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] as V responds he had no "exciting" adventures, to which Belkar [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaks the fourth wall]] and replies that "Hey, maybe we will see that as a bonus story in one of the books." V then invokes this trope.
* There are a couple in ''Webcomic/OurLittleAdventure''. The first being something that happened to Rocky and Angelika in Limbon River, and the second having to do with Angelika's first familiar. These incidents are not talked about, though many people make references to the familiar one in [[TalkingAnimal Norveg's]] company, which frustrates him to no end.

* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent''
** Sven's friend Wil leaves a pornographic piece of poetry in the coffee shop. Wil has the "brilliant" idea of getting Sven to go apologize for him, and the following conversation takes place.
-->'''Sven:''' What am I supposed to say? "I'm sorry that my friend is a creepy motherfucker, but will you please go on a date with him anyway?"\\
'''Wil:''' Remember '''Elenore'''?\\
'''Sven:''' Aw man, don't call in that favor now. Please.\\
'''Wil:''' I'm calling it in.
** Another one is used in a [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=402 much earlier comic]]. Apparently, Pintsize has a large file in his hard drive of all the chaos he's caused. #472 is his favorite, because "Those preschoolers will remember that day for the rest of their lives." Knowing Pintsize, it's some kind of unholy wacky terror.
** Not to mention the title of another one: [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=388 "To Say Nothing of the Crisco Incident"]]
** A [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=530 guest strip]] also had another Pintsize NoodleIncident: "[[NoTimeToExplain There's not time to explain]] but we're out of eggs and the cops are on the way."
** And, of course, with the reappearance of Steve we have only vague hints into what secret agent-ish things he was doing while he was gone.
** Or [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1499 #1499]].
** June 14th, 1987 [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1567 Never Happened]].
** Jimbo has an [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=777 interesting example]] of one where ''not even the participants know what happened'': "All's I know is we went to a literary convention, I started drinkin', and next thing I know my agent's drivin' like a bat outta hell with me hid in the trunk and I ain't allowed in Canada ever again."
** Marten's dad gets remarried, and the [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2405 entire reception]] is a Noodle Incident.
* ''Webcomic/RandomlyAssembled'': Birthdayboy's arm injury was *not* a result of the infamous "noodle inceedeent* (which, apparently, everyone has heard of), it happened much earlier, when he was apparently hit by a motorcycle.
* In ''Webcomic/SandraAndWoo'', do we really want to know how playing "Truth or Dare" with Larisa can cause [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/09/19/0309-important-advice/ psychological trauma?]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Sandusky}}'' has the [[http://sandusky.comicgenesis.com/d/20061204.html railroad bridge incident]].
* Apparently some time before the events of ''Webcomic/TheSanityCircus'', Bee the circus clown was involved in a magic accident that left her with RaymanianLimbs. She's surprisingly ok with it.
* There's a couple of these in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', namely it's mentioned that Der Trihs used to be a tactical genius before part of his brain was eaten by a Borthwog torturer [[spoiler: those whole story was actually a fabrication invented by the military to cover the fact they stuffed up a surgical operation they were performing on him]], but it's never revealed what happened, or indeed who the Borthwog actually are.
* In ''Webcomic/SeiyuuCrush'', we learn at the beginning that the CRUSH! agency was the only agency willing to hire Kaji "after what happened", but it isn't revealed what actually happened.
* A few in ''Sharp Zero'', mostly involving Elliot. There's the story about him getting banned from two IHOPs (a goat was involved in one),and when Elliot comes in contact with the titular toxic chemical substance he says, "Somehow this isn't as bad as the Ikea incident."
* ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'' suggests a slightly risqué explanation of the original Incident, [[http://www.sinfest.net/view.php?date=2004-05-12 here]].
** Sinfest has a RunningGag series of strips called You Had to be There, devoted to this trope.



* ''Webcomic/EvilDiva'' [[http://www.evildivacomics.com/?p=806 threatens her mother with one]]. Vaguer than usual. All we know is that the threat to reveal it is enough to make the mother go up against [[{{Satan}} The Big Guy]]
** Probably has something to do with her mother's own family background, which Diva knows about because she read her mother's diary.

* Happens in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' when Riff [[http://www.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=010210 unveils his new robot]], the Mark-5, even though only the Mark-1 and Mark-2 had been shown previously.
-->'''Torg:''' Why did you jump to "Mark-5"? I don't remember Mark-3 and 4!\\
'''Riff:''' I don't want to talk about it.\\
'''Torg:''' And why are lots 189 through 205 closed for repair?\\
'''Riff:''' I don't want to talk about it.\\
'''Torg:''' And lot 206 looks like it's been partially liquefied!\\
'''Riff:''' ''Drop it already!''
** Happened again,

* ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'': [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp11172006.shtml "Hey! I go along with all of your drunken brainstorms!"]]
** The end of a news report in a later strip: "... let's just say it was a Boston Baby Beauty Pageant nobody will forget any time soon! The gunman's identity has not yet been released by police."
** Davan at one point opens up a spreadsheet of evil things he's done on purpose or accident. Most notably, this list inexplicably includes 'bake a pie' as well as an entry entitled 'Harness the power of kittens for evil'. This second one has happened 13 times.
* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'':
** The Västerström
is several times mentioned to have undergone a RichesToRags episode some years earlier due to its relevance to their current situation, but the cause has yet to be mentioned three real-life years and thirteen chapters into the story.
** The piece of {{Blackmail}}
that Trond used to convince the threat to reveal it is enough captain a merchant ship to make a detour into the mother go up against [[{{Satan}} The Big Guy]]
** Probably
Silent World to deliver food to the crew. All that gets shown is the reaction of the captain as Trond reminds her of the information.
* It's probably better not to ask what Marissa and Max from ''Webcomic/SturgeonsLaw'' need a [[http://sturgeonslaw.net/comic/turtle-sandwich/ wombat and a bone saw]] for. Itís also unclear what exactly happened at the [[http://sturgeonslaw.net/comic/15-cross-management-synergy-matrices/ Helen Keller Museum]].
* ''Webcomic/SupernormalStep''
has the [[http://supernormalstep.com/3/ baby carriage]] [[IncendiaryExponent bonfire]] debacle.
* In the Devo webcomic, ''Tired O' [=Tourin'=]'', Bob 1's reaction to Mark's FreakOut at the beginning of the story implies that
something similar has happened before.
** It's never explained where Mark got a gun.
** It's also lampshaded that no one ever finds out how General Boy finally puts a stop
to Mark's behaviour.

* ''Webcomic/KnightsOfBuenaVista'' is a CampaignComic covering Disney films such as ''{{Disney/Frozen}}''. When the GameMaster notes how much MinMaxing Adriana did to her character, Elsa, her reminds her of the last time she did that, which only alludes to ''Disney/TheSwordInTheStone'', and than the GM had to use divine intervention to prevent a war.
* ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfSueAndKathryn'' implies part of the reason everyone is so afraid of Sue is because of the block party massacre last year. All we know about that is that Sue claims she was "totes provoked".
* At some point prior to the start of the story in ''{{Webcomic/Drowtales}}'', [[TheAce Laele'aell Val'Sarghress]] was (apparently) possessed by a demon and an attempted exorcism resulted in her becoming an EmptyShell, which created a situation where the Sarghress clan had no heir apparent and made her mother Quain'tana resort to [[MoralEventHorizon desperate measures]].

the GameMaster notes how comic, the AltText says "This is nothing. I once lost my genetics, rocketry, and stripping licenses in a single incident." How genetics, rocketry, and stripping can be combined ''at all'' boggles the mind.

Most of the last time she did that, which only alludes to ''Disney/TheSwordInTheStone'', others were never explained.

* ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfSueAndKathryn'' implies part of the reason everyone is so afraid of Sue is because of the block party massacre last year.
secret. All we know about that is that Sue claims she was "totes provoked".
* At some point prior to the start of the story in ''{{Webcomic/Drowtales}}'', [[TheAce Laele'aell Val'Sarghress]] was (apparently) possessed by a demon and an attempted exorcism resulted in her becoming an EmptyShell, which created a situation where the Sarghress clan had no heir apparent and made her mother Quain'tana resort to [[MoralEventHorizon desperate measures]]. There was going to be a story at one point clarifying what exactly happened but it was never made for unknown reasons.
* ''Webcomic/BramAndVlad'' has a few, almost all of them regarding the Van Helsings' dabblings in Mad Science.
** [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Bram_and_Vlad/5476760/ Ellen's list]] of the weirdest things she saw the Van Helsings doing has five entries censored 'for the sake of the children'. Two of those even have exclamation marks sticking out of the censored part.

* Sidney, the main character of ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'' was once arrested for aggravated assault (although it was dismissed as self-defense). However, it is a little unclear what she actually did. While we do see a [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/416 possibility]] in the form of an ImagineSpot by Maxima, the actual police report merely reads, "Oh the humanity!"
* A rare almost-on-screen example in ''Webcomic/{{Godslave}}'' - we don't know just what trap Anpu sets up for Turner and Blacksmith's curses and electric flashes
are the only clues.

* In [[http://megamanspritecomic.tumblr.com/post/26523384151/if-we-never-try-anything-we-get-stuck-doing-the one]] ''Webcomic/{{Megamanspritecomic}}'' strip, Zero shows Megaman his new disc player, which can play anything. Megaman suggests a shrimp disc, but in the next comic it has Megaman and Zero agreeing to never do that again.
* Apparently some time before the events of ''Webcomic/TheSanityCircus'', Bee the circus clown was involved in a magic accident that left her with RaymanianLimbs. She's surprisingly ok with it.

We do learn what it was much later; [[spoiler: Annie was working as a waitress and didn't tell Jim, Jim took her out to the same restaurant not knowing this, he made a scene, and she got fired. She realized after saying it out loud that a) the firing was unrelated since she was terrible at her job, and b) she was being completely unreasonable]].
