* The last panel of [[http://basicinstructions.net/basic-instructions/2010/9/19/how-to-create-a-plausible-superhero-origin-story.html this]] ''Basic Instructions'' strip employs it when explaining superhero origin stories.
** They also had "[[http://basicinstructions.net/basic-instructions/2012/5/29/how-to-show-some-civic-pride.html The Unpleasantness]]" from Scott's hometown. Pretty much ''every'' comment is asking or guessing what "The Unpleasantness" was.
* The ''Calvin and Hobbes'' incident is [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff200/fv00125.htm referred to]] in ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'', 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, 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...]]"
* ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' had JerkWithAHeartOfGold Abel stuck with Dan at SAIA... with the former being unable to give him a tour of the library, as some incident had taken place there that was so bad he's permanently banned. Given the SAIA librarian's actual [[http://www.missmab.com/DLoads/DMFA_Wallpaper28_800.jpg identity and appearance]], one has to wonder just ''what'' happened....
** Note the Abel feather in the inkwell on the SAIA Librarian's desk.
** There was also a RunningGag in earlier strips where Aslan would allude to his chaotic wife's many incidents.
--->'''Aslan:''' ... and that was the last time I took Neni to the [X].
** Another RunningGag involves Dan turning the lake pink.
** And the time Dan took out about a dozen Death Knights with a spork.
** Back in the "Warrior for Hire" arc, an old friend of Dans [[http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Vol_128.php reminiscences]]:
--->'''Kannikah:''' Remember the time you took out that horde of ice-orcs while wearing only a loin-cloth?
* ''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!''
* 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 ''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.
* The [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0149.html Sashimi Incident]] in ''DarthsAndDroids''.
** And at the player level, [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0413.html whatever it is]] that Annie didn't want to talk about, after having dated Jim for a couple years between Episodes II and III.
** Lampshaded by Jim when he mentions another Noodle Incident with Annie, occuring at an art museum.
-->'''Jim''': I know we said we'd never mention it again, but I just wanted to mention it to show you I hadn't forgotten that we agreed not to mention it.
** In the final confrontation between Obi-Wan and Anakin in Episode III, the comic manages to have a noddle 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.
* ''{{Narbonic}}'''s Zeta briefly mentions a certain [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/users/narbonic/082704And_meanwhile.jpg visit to the Mall of America]].
** ''{{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!"
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' loves this gag.
** Vanamonde makes a scheduled nightly [[SuperSoldier Jaegermonster]] fight sound tame compared to [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080606 Poetry Slam Night]].
** We're [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20051017 never quite]] let in on [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20051026 what happens]] in the "risqué" play ''The Socket Wench of Prague'', but Agatha seems a bit shellshocked. All we know for sure is that it had a [[OrAreYouJustHappyToSeeMe famous Mae West line]] in it:
--->'''Abner:''' ... I only had her rehearse ''her'' lines. There was no ''context''.\\
'''Agatha:''' ''(stunned)'' ... and when I asked him if that was a ''wrench'' in his pocket....
** Also, while the members of Master Payne's circus plan their next performance:
--->'''Payne:'''...and then Dame Aedith will do her knife throwing act.\\
'''Abner:''' And this time, do not ask if there are any vampires in the audience.\\
'''Dame Aedith:''' Hey! How was I to know that guy was joking? Who'd joke about ''vampires''!?
** In one town, Agatha worked as a [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20050523 fortune teller.]]
---> "She ... tea cozy ...''forty-three hours'' ... only '''one''' spoon ... how ... eek!"
** Another one from the circus, [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20050824 discussing]] the former puppeteer for Moxana:
--->'''Abner:''' Originally, she was run by a dwarf named [[BilingualBonus Kurtz]]. He was killed three years ago by some bad clams.\\
'''Krosp:''' Bad clams?\\
'''Abner:''' They had ''axes''. Anyway...
** One cannot afford to forget the [[http://www.zomgsmells.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=74&products_id=199&zenid=j6ntoscb6p031ao0g1k1a334s5 Nuremburg Pudding Incident]], an event alluded to in the past of one of the [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/info/cast/cast07.php#faculty authors]], in-universe.
---> "While the Nuremburg Pudding Incident has been largely hushed up and reduced to tantalizing snippets of rumor and hearsay after the fact, the two things most sources agree on are that the Professoressa Foglio was probably mostly responsible (whether this was intentional or not), and that it smelled DELICIOUS."
** It's [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20061124 been implied]] that Oggie did something that may or may not have caused Baron Wulfenback to keep a personal grudge towards him.
--->'''Ognian''':"Shoddop 'bout dot!"
* [[DresdenCodak "Remember when Reverse Moses parted the city to escape Aqua-Pharaoh?"]]
* [[Webcomic/MegaTokyo Piro and Largo's]] roadtrip to Canada: "Hey come on... we got handcuffed by real Mounties! That was cool."
* ''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.
* In the 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.
* [[http://houserules.org.uk/strips/2002/om20020206-c.jpg "There was that one about the baking soda, but I'm not supposed to remind you about that."]]
* Something happened to 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 ''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.
** 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 ''{{Mezzacotta}}'' is based on this principle.
* ''IrregularWebcomic'' made reference to the original NoodleIncident with their own, [[http://irregularwebcomic.net/418.html here]]
* There's a reason Virus in ''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/GirlsNextDoor'' makes use of this trope, with a never-elaborated upon Prom Night Incident.
** There is also the Sushi incident which barred Erik from the cast's favorite sushi bar.
* ''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.
"...and that's when they made me their king." is said by Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
** 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''.
* ''{{Sinfest}}'' suggests a slightly risque explanation of the original Incident, [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=1562 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 ''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.
* {{Sandusky}} has the [[http://sandusky.comicgenesis.com/d/20061204.html railroad bridge incident]].
* Yeager in ''{{Nodwick}}'' invented an ''eighth deadly sin''. All we know about it is that Yeager found it entertaining and called it "blasphotrociterra-o-rama".
* 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.
* [[DotingParent Mr. Egbert]] of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has a restraining order on record against him from Creator/CirqueDuSoleil, for an incident that's never fully explained.
** Future Dave (now Davesprite) gave John the code for the epic [[DropTheHammer FEAR NO ANVIL]], claiming he got it through "shenanigans".
*** "Shenanigans" is a general Dave-speak (Jade uses it later, as well) term for "the story is long and complicated to the point of comprising a whole novel on its own" with a dash of "I'm almost certain you would disapprove of my methods on either moral grounds or that making your friends worry is generally considered a Bad Thing". Karkat considers it "[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/scratch.php?s=6&p=005771 INFURIATINGLY VAGUE]]" (Warning: spoilers).
** The "[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004475 little moment]]" during which Terezi (GC) got close enough to Karkat (CG) to [[DisabilitySuperpower smell his blood color.]]
-->GC: [=PL34S3=] [=K4RK4T=], DO NOT [=PR3T3ND=] [=TH4T=] YOU FORGOT [=4BOUT=] OUR [=L1TTL3=] [=MOM3NT=]
-->CG: FUCK.
** Due to the AnachronicOrder of the series, a lot of incidents that start out as examples of this end up explained later on. For example, the [[{{LARP}} FLARP]] accident that crippled Tavros and blinded Terezi.
** Jack Noir's Jailbreak Adventure gave us the line "You've never once been disappointed to receive a pumpkin full of knives, and you're not about to make an exception."
* ''WebComic/BrokenPlotDevice'' gives us [[http://www.brokenplotdevice.com/2010/04/05/the-bagel-incident/ The Bagel Incident]].
* ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'' 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.
** 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://www.mgcomics.com/WTF/ Double-U Tea F]] of The Middle Ground frequently refers to an incident where Lyger did something horrific to his father's car. Every time someone brings it up, Lyger is prone to [[NoIndoorVoice increasingly bizarre outbursts]] about it.
-->'''Lyger:''' ''I did not know metal could shred into pieces that small!''
* [[Webcomic/{{Cheer}} Alex King]] denies all knowledge of how [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2008-06-25 that moose got in the dance club's room]]...
* In TheWotch, [[http://www.thewotch.com/?date=2006-03-20 this]] rather hilarious exchange alludes to some past event that soured Kate to Jason. While the two discuss it in the actual comic, their words are covered up by the background events.
* 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.
* UnicornJelly: two characters need to create a distraction, so they do [[http://unicornjelly.com/uni395.html the most shocking thing they can think of]]. The act is described by an un-translatable glyph. We never find out what it was, but later one of the characters says "Such a forbidden act, and it wasn't even all that interesting."
* KevinAndKell: [[spoiler:The ex-human Danielle]] is asked if the family's human counterparts are also seen as unique within their world. She says yes, but doesn't explain why, saying there's no point dwelling on such silly differences:
-->"What could be more frowned on than a rabbit and a wolf?"
-->"Humans are resourceful."
* {{Unshelved}} has [[http://www.unshelved.com/2002-7-11 the chess club]]
* [[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.
* 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.
* [[http://www.the-whiteboard.com/autowb830.html Michaels will never look at an electric toothbrush the same way ever again]].
* ''[[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 she DID give consent, but apparently that only applies when they're alive.
** Once Sylvester gets a job as Tomato's... assistant, he gets in on the act too when [[http://agameoffools.com/comic_146.html telling work stories]].
* ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned'' has a couple, such as [[http://www.sdamned.com/2006/11/11132006/ how J lost his last job]] or [[http://www.sdamned.com/2005/04/04292005/ what happens when wind demons drink]].
* ''Webcomic/OutThere'': Miriam makes a list of wild things she's done and shows it to Chuck. We never see what they are but we learn that some of them [[http://outthere.keenspot.com/d/20080318.html seem impossible and require at least two people]]. Fifteen of them [[http://outthere.keenspot.com/d/20080319.html involved Sherry in some way, much to her embarrassment (and attempted denial)]]. Another one (which also involved Sherry) was [[http://outthere.keenspot.com/d/20080320.html "stupid", but apparently fun enough that Sherry would be willing to do it "once more", but "only once"]]. Chuck responds by writing down some things he did, one of which makes Miriam's eyes widen and results in this exchange:
-->'''Miriam:''' You are '''so''' doing that with me tonight.
-->'''Chuck:''' I don't think we can. The supplies are usually on back order. [[http://outthere.keenspot.com/d/20080321.html]]
** Some or all of these "Noodle Incidents" could also be examples of ComicSutra.
* ''PlatinumGrit''. We'll never know what happened to Jeremy when he was carried away by Mexican strangers because it was "El Secreto del Corazon", a secret of the heart, and his silence was a matter of personal honour and great trust and faith. And because he'd been slamming mescal nonstop and didn't actually remember much of it.
* Ichabod from ''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"?
* Monica of ''WapsiSquare'' once tried to use her dog to pick up guys in the park. It apparently resulted in her handbag [[http://wapsisquare.com/comic/12022002/ catching fire.]]
** One can only wonder how Tina managed to [[http://wapsisquare.com/comic/parallel-parking/ run over her own wrist]] while ParallelParking.
* ''SupernormalStep'' has the [[http://supernormalstep.com/3/ baby carriage]] [[IncendiaryExponent bonfire]] debacle.
* ''{{Enjuhneer}}'' found a way to [[http://www.enjuhneer.com/archives/315-noodle-incident subvert this trope.]]
* ''PvP'' has a variant where Brent and Cole choose revenge randomly, producing a result that even Brent thinks is excessive.
-->'''Brent:''' No, not Happy Birthday. That's too far.
-->'''Cole:''' It landed on Happy Birthday!
-->'''Brent:''' I can't believe you were willing to go through with Happy Birthday.
* ''SkinHorse'':
** Jonah was responsible for one at Nera's [[http://skin-horse.com/comics/04122012 tenth birthday party]].
** The worst perversion of science Unity ever saw "[[http://skin-horse.com/comics/12062008/ was with a sonic probe and a really surprised lemur]]".
* 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.
* The potato juice incident of 2005, Kitti and Dries's "legendary" anniversary, and everything Zac did on the Fleischmann account in ''Webcomic/WhatTheFu''.
* 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.
* There are a couple in ''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.
* The "Project Noodle incident" in ''WeaponBrown''. Which is (naturally) part of the origin story for that comic's version of Calvin and Hobbes.
* 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?]]
* ''[[http://prequeladventure.com/ Prequel]]'' has recurring references to a "pretty interesting party trick involving a yoyo and a pineapple" that is never explained - we are merely informed that it's not appropriate for most parties. Which still doesn't keep the main protagonist from performing it in the middle of the town square, although in her defense, she was completely plastered at the time.
** WordOfGod has it that this was inspired by ''DaveBarry [[http://books.google.com/books?id=Mmd9cE9YOrcC&pg=PA125#v=onepage&q&f=false Does Japan]]''—also an example.
* [[http://www.unintentionallypretentious.com/index.asp?c=97 Whatever got Sydney, Mia, and Luthor arrested]] in ''Webcomic/UnintentionallyPretentious'' is banned from conversation.
* [[http://www.twiceblessedcomic.com/?webcomic_post=16 Name-dropped]] in TwiceBlessed (read the last line on that page).
* 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...
* According to a ''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!
* ''Webcomic/TheKAMics'' referenced why Gertrude & Brunhilda had been banned from Tyrion [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/The_KAMics/5412350/ here]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Karin-dou 4koma}}'' has a few references to a fight between various characters in the comic and an Evil Organization, during which--among other things--Shizuki fell in love with Tamaryu and Meguru got a major breast enhancement as a side effect of being aged down and back. This comes from an H-doujin the author privately circulated among friends but never released.
* ''WebComic/{{Precocious}}'': Whatever the Sapphire kids did preceding their hiding out at Kaitlyn's birthday party. One by one, supporting characters learned the details in tiny whispers indecipherable by the audience.
** Or how about the time they [[http://www.precociouscomic.com/archive/comic/2010/10/25 set the lake on fire]]?
** Almost all of the children's unseen escapades are treated as Noodle Incidents unless the joke or plot specifically requires otherwise, as well as wealth of NoodleImplements in play when their schemes have yet to come to fruition.
** Subverted with Tiffany's aging. Strip [[http://www.precociouscomic.com/archive/comic/2011/08/18 893]] presents the accident that halted Tiff's aging as a NoodleIncident, but strip [[http://www.precociouscomic.com/archive/comic/2011/08/21 896]] provides an explanation.
** The "Orlando Incident" let the adults in on the fun.
** Heck, there are so many Noodle Incidents in the comic that it's even addressed in the FAQ!
--> '''Question:''' Will we get to see what happened when _____?
--> '''Answer:''' Probably not. I think some things are funnier when you have to imagine what crazy stuff went down yourself!
** Given that the author admits to taking a lot of inspiration from ''Calvin and Hobbes'', the frequency of this trope's appearance is not really a surprise.
* 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. It’s also unclear what exactly happened at the [[http://sturgeonslaw.net/comic/15-cross-management-synergy-matrices/ Helen Keller Museum]].
* 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.
* In ''Webcomic/HeadTrip'' Mal has a party that involves alcohol and Disney movies and when she comes to she finds she's taken over Disneyworld with superpowers granted by costumes and Disney movies. Aurora costume gives sleeping powers, Belle costume can turn anyone into furniture but they decided using the magic mirror for surveillance was more practical, Megara has Hade's power as a loophole states any power from the movie is granted by the costume, Snow white has the ability to summon animals to do her bidding. However when they get to Alice they have no idea what her power is as she showed Mal when Mal was under the influence of "The Shot" and Mal made her sign a contract to never use or speak about her power again. All the other ladies know is "it involved hearts" Considering how Mal has repeatedly been wooed by the Devil himself because of how horrible she is one can only wonder what [[EvenEvilHasStandards power would be forbidden.]]
* [[http://thewretchedones.smackjeeves.com The Wretched Ones]] has a [[http://thewretchedones.smackjeeves.com/comics/1690556/page-31/ conversation]] between Charlie and John where they discuss what happened last time John visited Charlie at work to [[MakingLoveinAlltheWrongPlaces 'make use of his break']]. It involves a plate of flying Linguini.
* ''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.
