** Nick Fury has appeared in ''Film/IronMan1'', ''Film/IronMan2'', ''Film/{{Thor}}'' and ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', while Tony Stark made an appearance at the end of ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk''. In ''The Avengers'', the main characters from all the mentioned movies will join forces. Sadly, we're ScrewedByTheLawyers when it comes to anyone from the ''[[Film/FantasticFour Fantastic]] [[Film/FantasticFour2015 Four]]'' or ''Film/XMen'' films appearing, despite The Thing, Mister Fantastic, and Wolverine having been in Avengers comics for some time now and Beast having a long history with them.

* Behind-the-scenes pictures of some of the maintenance panels on the X-Jet in X2 reveal that some systems were built by Stark Enterprises (and that there were no user serviceable parts inside!), but they're far too small to be seen onscreen. An "Intercontinuity Nod"?

* All of Volition's games take place in the same continuity, where the SaintsRow series serves as a prequel to the RedFaction series, taking place TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture. Volition no longer have the rights to the ''VideoGame/FreeSpace'' series, but a "Subach Industries" shows up in SaintsRow, referencing the Subach-Innes corporation from the former.

* All of {{Brandon Sanderson}}'s adult novels (''Literature/{{Elantris}}'', ''Literature/{{Mistborn}}'', ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}'' and ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'' so far, with others forthcoming) are set in the same universe, with at least one character (Hoid) appearing or being referenced in every one, and hints of a broader MythArc on the horizon.

** ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}: Episode 2'', for its part, introduces a ship called the Borealis as a major plot element; said ship was built by Aperture as part of an early teleportation experiment and "vanished, along with part of the dry-dock".

* Almost all of the WhateleyUniverse stories take place among a small group of kids who go to [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] together, so there's phenomenal amounts of Continuity Overlap, to the point that it looks like the authors have to coordinate character schedules down to the day.

* Almost all of David Walliams' children's novels take place in the same universe, and in fact in the same town, but the only crossover character is Raj the newsagent. The only exception so far takes place about a hundred years ago.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and ''Series/{{Angel}}'' interacted so much during their respective fourth and first seasons that watching them in concert is almost a necessity to understand what's going on in either.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and ''Series/{{Angel}}'' interacted so much during their respective fourth and first seasons that watching them in concert is almost a necessity to understand what's going on in either. This would continue to a lesser degree in later seasons; in particular season four of ''Angel'' had several hints about the events of ''Buffy'''s seventh (and final) season.

** This requires some mental gymnastics for the latter two, as they have vaguely similar premises of 'find weird things happening, investigate weird things, deal with weird things', only one had the weird things caused by objects and the other by people. FridgeLogic kicks in when you realize that the cause of the weirdness is not always (or even usually) immediately apparent, so by all rights the two casts should run into each other on a semi-weekly basis.
