* A great many of the episodes of the revival of ''[[Series/TheOuterLimits1995 The Outer Limits]]'' are retroactively revealed to take place in the same continuity. Unfortunately for continuity, several of those episodes are entirely contradictory.

Unfortunately for continuity, several of those episodes are entirely contradictory. Some of them, however, are stated as taking place in {{Alternate Timeline}}s.

* GeoffJohns has been doing this in the Comicbook/GreenLantern books, introducing an "emotional spectrum" that people can draw power from. The Green Lantern Corps fall square in the middle at green willpower; with red rage, orange avarice and yellow fear on one side and blue hope, indigo compassion, and violet love on the other. Not only are existing characters being tied into the spectrum (villainess Star Sapphire tapping into love energy, for example), but Johns has established whole rival corps for each (like yellow ring-wielder Sinestro starting his own Sinestro Corps of fear).

* Most ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' games, while sometimes direct sequels to one another, are usually episodic. Around ''Videogame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand'', however, past games began to tie in more explicitly to newer ones, with Magolor mentioning how the ancients who built the Lor Starcutter made "clockwork stars" (implying a connection to ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar''[='=]s NOVA), the [[spoiler:Dimension Mirror from ''VideoGame/KirbyAndTheAmazingMirror'']] being the cause of [[spoiler:Queen Sectonia's [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen tyrannical personality]]]] in ''VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe'', and ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot''[='=]s FinalBoss [[spoiler:bearing a strong resemblance to NOVA, even having wish-granting powers and a similar HeartDrive that's fought as a boss]].

* All 7 other of the ''IncarnationsOfImmortality'' series, encompassing epic acts by Death, Time, Fate, War, Nature, God and the Devil had this trope. In the latest novel in the series ''UnderAVelvetCloak'', all of these acts are only minor compared to Nox's (the Incarnation of Night/Secrets) actions (whose actions choose which universes live or die).

* In the old ''KamenRider'' series, many an evil organization was ruled by a guy called the "[insert this year's evil organization name] Great Leader," always voiced by veteran voice actor GoroNaya. Welding comes in with the later seasons having the new [Organization] Great Leader often say "oh, yeah, I was behind them all, and those ''other'' organizations from the last couple of series I ''wasn't'' in too!" Not only were all of Naya's "Great Leaders" made one character, with the final enemy of ''Black RX'' voiced by Naya as well, it's theorized that ''every pre-hiatus Kamen Rider villain ever'' is either the Great leader himself or one of his pawns.

* MarilynManson's ''Antichrist Superstar'' and ''Mechanical Animals'' were originally thought of as two separate concept albums, as they have different protagonists, plots, and points, plus the entire universe is destroyed at the end of ''Antichrist Superstar''. With ''Holy Wood'' however, the Triptych was revealed, and the plot flows in reverse, from ''Holy Wood'' to ''Mechanical Animals'' to ''Antichrist Superstar''. The protagonist of ''Holy Wood'', Adam Kadmon, the first to rebel against Holy Wood, is the father of The Worm/Antichrist Superstar from, well, guess. Coma (who in the novel, only Chapter 10 of which was ever released, is the daughter of the leader of Holy Wood), is his mother, who after the suicide of Adam Kadmon, falls into rampant drug use and then the aliens Alpha and Omēga fall in love with her. When she herself dies in the song "Coma White", both lose hope, and the song "Irresponsible Hate Anthem", from ''Antichrist Superstar'', is actually performed by Omēga, not The Worm, as proven by the three "live songs". The liner notes for ''Antichrist Superstar'' show that "Irresponsible Hate Anthem" was recorded live on Valentine's Day, 1997. However, the album came out in 1996. The liner notes again say this about "I Want To Disappear" off of ''Mechanical Animals'', an album that came out in 1998, and the song was in fact not actually played at the real Valentine's Day, 1997 show. Finally, "Born Again" off of ''Holy Wood'' is also said to have been recorded on the same day. This song also was not played live, especially seeing as the album it's from came out in 2000. The albums tell the story of three characters. ''Holy Wood's'' Adam Kadmon fights the system, only to get brought into it and ultimately kill himself. ''Mechanical Animals''' Alpha and Omēga [[ShoutOut are space]] [[Music/DavidBowie alien rock stars]], who crashed and were captured and enslaved. Alpha sings the emotional songs on the album, Omēga the vapid, drug songs, however turns against the system due to the death of Coma. The Worm, Adam and Coma's son, idolizes Omēga, and leads his own revolution against the system and wins, only to turn against his mindless, obsessive fans who worship him as a god, and in his rage becomes the Antichrist Superstar and destroys the universe, thus ending the Triptych.

** In ''ComicBook/{{Miracleman}} a DarkerAndEdgier reboot of the childish British originals, the bizarre and fantastical Mick Anglo 50s stories [[spoiler:are retconned into artificial memories via LotusEaterMachine by the BigBad]], ensuring that the old stories had a context and important to the modern version.

* In one of the oldest examples, ''Strange Tales'' #146 reveals that A.I.M. and the Secret Empire, previously treated as brand-new, independent threats to Comicbook/NickFury, Comicbook/Incredible Hulk, and Comicbook/SubMariner are just front organizations for a regrouped Hydra.

* Various jokes and gags made in the purely episodic first season of ''WesterAnimation/AdventureTime either return in later seasons to help reveal new plot information, or are expanded upon to bring more insight into a character. A major example includes the episode "I Remember You", which uses an early throwaway gag of Marceline constantly moving all over the Land of Ooo, and explains the main reason for this being an escape from [[spoiler: her now mentally-insane father figure, the Ice King, who took care of her during the nuclear apocalypse]].

* Another Batman example: the climax of the ''[[ComicBook/BatmanTheBlackMirror Black Mirror]]'' arc reveals that [[TheSociopath James Gordon Jr.]] was involved, one way or another, in pretty much ''everything'' villainous that occurred over the course of the arc. He also implies that he was the one who inspired SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker to cripple Barbara back in ''Comicbook/TheKillingJoke'', though it's unclear if that's true or if he's just screwing with her.
