** The ''KingdomHearts'' series tends to make heavy use of the numbers 3, 7, and 13, though the first two are played more subtly.

* The number 7 is everywhere in ''ASongOfIceAndFire'': 7 books, 7 kingdoms, 7 Hells, 7 Gods, and so on. The number 3 also seems to be important to House Targaryen.

* The number 7 is everywhere in ''ASongOfIceAndFire'': ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' and is of particular importance to those who worship the new gods: 7 books, 7 kingdoms, kingdoms (which actually consists of 9 regions), 7 Hells, 7 Gods, and so on. The number 3 also seems to be important to House Targaryen.

* SquareEnix ''loves'' doing this. Most of their games have multiple Arc Numbers, but the TropeCodifier for VideoGames has to be ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''. [[StrictlyFormula If the number is in the title of the game]], it is most likely an ArcNumber.

* ''Series/{{Sense8}}''. You can probably guess what number it is. Eight main characters, in eight different locations, all born on August 8th... etc.

* The number 7 shows up a lot in ''VideoGame/FallenLondon'', especially in connection with a certain quest.thankless quest known for bringing only misery and loss to whoever undertakes it. But it crops up quite a bit elsewhere, as well. Seven is the Number, as they say.

* ''[[ThirteenthAge 13th Age]]'', so called because default games take place during the 13th Age of its setting, has 13 Icons - major NPC's who the players start out with some connection to. The most powerful monsters in the corebook - Balor and Huge Red Dragon - come in at level 13 threats, and the game as a whole is (C) 2013. The "13 True Ways" sourcebook adds yet more to this, by containing 13 inns, 13 dungeons and 13 flying realms. * ''ChuubosMarvelousWishGrantingEngine'' tosses around the number 8 a lot. There are eight colors of arc, eight genres, characters get 8 each of skill points, Will, and perk slots, and the default setting (Town) has 8 regions.

* ''[[Creator/ThisIsIt Don't Hug Me I'm Scared]]'' has 1906. The date in all 3 shorts is June 19th, which in England is 19/06 since Europeans put the the day before the month. The journey through time in the second is arranged so that each day the trio go to is on June 19th. Also during the Victorian Time sequence, you can see a wanted poster for Yellow Puppet, with the reward being $1,906. The Kickstarter page after ominously stating "all will be revealedů" shows a picture of a calendar with June 19th on it, and the Kickstarter itself ended on June 19th. In Episode 3, Mr. and Mrs. Dead both died in 1906. Episode 3 was released in September 2014 with new episodes planned every 3 months after. They may be aiming to do the finale on June 19th. Joseph Pelling confirmed in a tweet that the significance of the date June 19th will be revealed by the end.

* Four is an important recurring number in ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}''. There are only four Kingdoms, each with a four-year academy. Academy teams consist of four people, each based on four main colors. There are four basic types of dust and [[spoiler: four maidens representing the four seasons]]. Not to mention the fact that the story starts right before the 40th Vytal Festival.

* '''7''' in the ''ScottPilgrim'' saga. It becomes more readily apparent when Scott finally reaches Gideon, Ramona's 7th and final evil ex. There's only 6 books in the series however, because two of her exes (a pair of twins) are defeated simultaneously in the 5th book. There are also mini-arc numbers for each ex; most wear their numbers, and coincidentally have them around them. Except for, again, 5 and 6, who get the number "11" (which is 5+6). Scott Pilgrim himself is usually connected with the number 0.
