Manhattan]]".
** The Seventh Doctor story "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS25R1RemembranceOfTheDaleks Remembrance of the Daleks Daleks]]" has Coal Hill School (mere weeks after the departure of Susan and One), the book on the French Revolution Barbara pulls out in the first series, the Dalek Emperor, references to Omega and Rassilon, and has a precursor to UNIT, including a Liz Shaw Expy.
** A Ganger duplicate of the Eleventh Doctor goes through impressions of the First, Third, Fourth and Tenth Doctors before catching up in ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E6TheAlmostPeople "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E6TheAlmostPeople The Almost People]]''.People]]". For bonus points, it's actually Creator/TomBaker's voice asking "would you like a Jelly Baby?"
** In ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E7AGoodManGoestoWar "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E7AGoodManGoestoWar A Good Man Goes to War]]'', War]]", the Battle of Demons Run had the Doctor assembling an army of one-off characters from previous episodes. In addition to the new characters [[PowerTrio Madame Vastra, Jenny and Strax]], his army included the pirates [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E3TheCurseoftheBlackSpot Henry and Toby Avery]], a squadron of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E3VictoryOfTheDaleks Dalek-enhanced Spitfire planes]], and the black marketeer [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E12ThePandoricaOpens Dorium Maldovar]]. For bonus points, Rory went into battle in full costume as [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E13TheBigBang "The Last Centurion"]], and was introduced as such by Amy in the opening (the latter was lampshaded, as Rory wonders aloud why the Doctor had him do so and never gets an answer).
** ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E1AsylumOfTheDaleks "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E1AsylumOfTheDaleks Asylum of the Daleks]]'' Daleks]]" boasts every Dalek model ever built, and recreations of some missing ones, while the later episode ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E3ATownCalledMercy "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E3ATownCalledMercy A Town Called Mercy]]'' Mercy]]" has the Doctor naming the last few major villains of the revived series.
** Series 7's finale, ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E13TheNameOfTheDoctor "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E13TheNameOfTheDoctor The Name of the Doctor]]'', Doctor]]", has appearances by all eleven Doctors up to that point -- the Eleventh obviously still played by Matt Smith, and the other ten using a mixture of body doubles and archive footage. [[spoiler:In actual fact, it's all ''twelve'' Doctors, as the story introduces John Hurt's War Doctor at the end.]] There's even a scene showing the First Doctor and Susan stealing the TARDIS, [[spoiler:with Clara's help]].
** ''[[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor "[[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor The Day of the Doctor]]'' Doctor]]" [[spoiler: manages to top the Series 7 finale with all ''thirteen'' Doctors -- including a first official appearance by Peter Capaldi's Twelfth Doctor -- charging into the fray during the climactic battle (again, via archive footage).]]
** In ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E5TimeHeist "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E5TimeHeist Time Heist]]'', Heist]]", images are played of the [[Recap/TheSarahJaneAdventuresS3E1E2PrisonerOfTheJudoon Androvax]], a [[Recap/DoctorWhoS1E7TheSensorites Sensorite]], [[{{Series/Torchwood}} Captain John Hart]], [[Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine Abslom Daak]], a [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E5WorldWarThree Slitheen]], a [[Recap/DoctorWhoS19E4TheVisitation Terileptil]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E3ATownCalledMercy The Gunslinger]] and [[Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures the Trickster]]. In the case of Abslom Daak, this firmly cements him as a CanonImmigrant.



** The Skaro scenes in "The Magician's Apprentice"[=/=]"The Witch's Familiar" included a vast number of older Dalek designs, including classic Daleks in their original blue and silver, a Special Weapons Dalek from "Remembrance of the Daleks", and the return of the "bracketed" Dalek Supreme design from "The Stolen Earth"[=/=]"Journeys' End".

* Final Remixes in the VideoGame/RhythmHeaven series are usually a FinalExamBoss in that they're made entirely of short moments in every stage in the game (excluding other remixes). The Final Remix of ''Rhythm Heaven Megamix'', taking it UpToEleven, becomes this trope in its latter half, with the music turning into a medley of the main themes of each Rhythm Heaven game in order of their release (including ''Megamix''), with stages from those games as the main themes play.

* [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep The Collector]]'s headquarters in ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' is essentially one big treasure trove of {{Continuity Nod}}s to previous films in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. In addition to displaying holograms of the previous two Infinity Stones revealed so far -- the Tesseract from ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' and ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' and the Aether from ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' -- the Collector can be seen keeping a [[Film/ThorTheDarkWorld Dark Elf]] and a [[Film/TheAvengers2012 Chitauri soldier]] in two of his cages. [[TheStinger After the credits]], we also find out that one of his cages housed [[spoiler: ''Howard the Duck'']] all along.

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' has the GCPD evidence room, which holds most of the gadgets/weapons/other personal items of the various villains of the previous games. Yes, it even has stuff from Origins, which suffered from ''FanonDiscontinuity.''
