* Tripped over in ''Series/SledgeHammer.'' Since the first season ended with everyone dying in a nuclear fireball, the second season was a prequel to the first season -- despite the fact that the main characters ''met'' in the first episode, and weren't partners before.
** An alternative interpretation is that there was a 5 year gap between the penultimate and final episodes of the first season, and season 2 fitted in there. This seems to be what the 'disclaimer' at the start of season 2 is implying.

* Tripped Possibly tripped over in ''Series/SledgeHammer.'' depending on your interpretation of where the second season is placed. Since the first season ended with everyone dying in a nuclear fireball, the second season started with a disclaimer explaining that these episodes were set five years earlier. It's possible it was intended to convey that there was a five year gap between the second last and last episode of season one, therefore having a place for season two. Alternatively, if the second season is a prequel to the first season -- despite this creates a problem given the fact that the main characters ''met'' in the first episode, and weren't partners before.

before.

* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' used this as a clue in the episode "A Human Reaction". The aliens could only create people from John's memories so after a while John realised that everyone around him was someone he had met, generally in some obscure way, before.

* Creator/DerekRobinson uses this a lot in his serial novels of wartime aviation. Characters in one novel frequently carry over into the next - providing they [[EverybodyDies survive]]. In ''Literature/HulloRussiaGoodbyeEngland'', several characters carry over from the last of his WW2 trilogy, ''Damn Good Show'' as we follow 409 Squadron into the nuclear jet age. As a bonus, intelligence officer Skull Skelton returns into an age where his moral ambiguities and ability to see in terms of finely nuanced greys are welcomed by an RAF to whom the old certainties are dead.

* Averted in ''ProfessorLaytonAndTheLastSpecter''. It's the fourth game in the series, but set first in the timeline. However, it still features appearances by Granny Riddleton, Inspector Chelmy and Barton, who chronologically first meet the Professor later. To avoid plotholes, the Professor and Luke never cross paths with them, only Emmy does (she never appeared in the earlier games). In fact, Granny Riddleton quickly goes on vacation and leaves her cat behind to perform her usual job, so the Professor never sees her. In ''Miracle Mask'', Granny appears, and even meets the Professor, but she disguises herself and uses a pseudonym for no apparent reason, and in all other occasions when she appears she pretends not to know the heroes, so canon is preserved nonetheless.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "[[Recap/StevenUniverseS1E49JailBreak Jail Break]]", Steven meets Ruby and Sapphire (the Gems that [[FusionDance make up Garnet]]) for the first time. However, four seasons later, "[[Recap/StevenUniverseS4E9ThreeGemsAndABaby Three Gems And A Baby]]" showed that Garnet unfused when Steven was an infant, but this left a bad impression on him.

** That's just the start. Characters know each other from other crossovers, such as [[CapcomVsWhatever Marvel Vs Capcom 3 or Street Fighter X Tekken]]. Several also recognize each other by reputation if they have a good reason to, such as people with knowledge of demons, like [[VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins Arthur]] or [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Morrigan]] knowing of [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Sparda]] and figuring out Dante is his son.

* ''{{Dragonlance}}'' is like this. You have the Chronicles, then the Twins trilogy, and then they start filling in every character's backstory, usually featuring one or more characters from the chronologically later canon. Considering that the characters were supposedly no more than fourth level or so when they started the 1st Edition AD&D module, ''Dragons of Hope,'' the likelihood of them having that many glamorous adventures together is... pretty small.
