* In ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam'', a {{Crossover}} between the ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' and ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi'' subseries, Luigi accidentally knocks over a book containing the ''Paper Mario'' universe, releasing their counterparts into the "real world", indicating that the ''Paper Mario'' games took place inside that book. As such, this game reconciles the ''Paper Mario'' and ''Mario & Luigi'' games.

** WordOfGod confirms that the first season's MonsterOfTheWeek approach to episodes were mostly because of Disney not knowing if the show would sit well with the audience. Aftergaining significant popularity, the show was arc-welded with a conclusive first season ending, that led to a more cohesive StoryArc in season 2.

* In one of the most jaw-dropping examples out there, ''[[ComicBook/DCRebirth DC Universe: Rebirth #1]]'' revealed the true creator of ComicBook/TheNew52 universe: [[spoiler:[[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Dr. Manhattan]]. The experiment at the end of the story gave birth to this world. Furthermore, the pre-''ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}}'' and pre-''New 52'' universes are the same universe.]]

*** Season 4's storylines also share only vague connections with each other -- the organization Oliver is sent to infiltrate in the flashbacks is Shadowspire, who serve as VillainOfTheWeek in one episode's present setting and served as part of [[spoiler: Andy Diggle]]'s StartOfDarkness. Also, the [[MacGuffin magic idol]] that flashback villain Baron Reiter is after also serves as [[BigBad Damien Darhk's]] power source in the present.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' had to explain new Reaper motivations after Drew Karpyshyn's "Dark Energy" explanation was abandoned. Each expansion built on it, most notably the "Leviathan" DLC.

* One of the highest quality examples of this is Creator/DonRosa's ''ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck'' series, which takes every random reference CarlBarks ever made to Scrooge's past and puts together a comprehensive, sensical and engaging character biography. If the Eisner award is to be believed, it ''really'' worked.
* GeoffJohns has been doing this in the Franchise/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).

* 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.

* 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]].
