  • Monette in Something*Positive has since been adopted by the MacIntyres and become a successful actress. But, despite now being in a committed lesbian relationship, she'll be remembered as the most man-loving lesbian ever...who'd rather do animals than women.
  • In Sidekick Girl, Illumina has a reputation for being a death magnet to her sidekicks (Part of the reason immortal Val was assigned to her). Only one, Val's immediate predecessor, actually died. Of her other long-term sidekicks, one quit on her in the middle of a fight and the other went insane from the stress of being an eternal twelve-year-old.

  • Head Trip has this invoked.
  • Bug Martini provides us with this example.
  • A somewhat meta-example in Gunnerkrigg Court: In one page the readers didn't recognize Eglamore, so whenever he now appears, Tom will always point out to them that it's Eglamore.
    • He lampshaded this at one point by pointing out that "the girl next to Eglamore is Antimony Carver, the hero this strip".
  • The rather... tactless way Melna's rape was handled in Dominic Deegan is still the single most pointed out problem with the strip the Hatedom brings up- To the point that even years later, that comic is still the most linked to page of the comic's entire run according to one Snarker's google search.
  • Homestuck: The fandom will probably never let John live down his "I'm not a homosexual" comment. Try to find one slash fic involving John where he doesn't say that or bring it up.
  • Fireball 20XL and its webmaster, Bryon "Psyguy" Beaubien, were brought down after a highly publicized callout movement brought his abuse of women and sexually predatory behavior to light. He would attempt to silence his victims and detractors, but all of his efforts were thwarted, and a Tumblr account documenting the evidence of his misdoings would be set up to ensure no one would ever forget what he did.
  • Stand Still, Stay Silent:
    • During the chapter of Reynir's arrival, the idea of eating him if the crew ever ran out of food was brought up very briefly, and that same chapter ended with actual orders to the crew to keep Reynir alive. Several real life years later, comment quips about the crew's food reserves or cannibalism will inevitably find a way to involve Reynir.
    • Ever since Håkan Västerström cut Onni's ear in the real world right when he was getting a similar injury in spirit form, subsequent appearances of he and the siblings with whom he's The Dividual tend to make the readers a little more wary of them than strictly necessary. The three children have had two scenes ever since the incident, one playing in the background, one hovering over Onni during his Power-Strain Blackout coma.
