* ''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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

* ''Webcomic/{{Megatokyo}}'''s Junpei has shown up in ''Webcomic/{{Applegeeks}}'', and they cross over from time to time. Mostly though, they stay apart, mainly because one set of characters in in Japan and the other is in America. Plus, time passes much slower in ''Megatokyo'' than in ''Applegeeks''.

* 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.

** [[http://vetus.wordpress.com/nazenani/#v30 Akamatsu himself]] has confirmed that the Nitta-sensei from ''Manga/AILoveYou'' and the Nitta-sensei from ''Negima'' are the same person, as well as the fact that ''Love Hina'''s Motoko Aoyama and ''Negima'''s Eishun [[http://vetus.wordpress.com/2010/09/02/vol-31-qa-partial/ are related somehow]].

* Bryan Fuller's works -- ''Series/DeadLikeMe'', ''Series/PushingDaisies'' and ''Series/{{Wonderfalls}}'' -- are all apparently set in the same universe. PushingDaisies and {{Wonderfalls}} share a character (a one-timer) and PushingDaisies also refers to Happy Time Temp Agency, which is where George worked in DeadLikeMe.

** ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' also exists in this universe (Paul Buchman was the original owner of Kramer's apartment), which is weird because George's fiancee, Susan, enjoys watching ''{{Mad About You}}''.

* Similary, ''Series/{{JAG}}'' spawned ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' which spawned ''Series/NCISLosAngeles''. Other than the PoorlyDisguisedPilot, there was one minor cross-over of a JAG lawyer appearing on NCIS. Abby Sciuto is the only character on either of the three to appear on all three shows.

* When Bobby Ewing was killed off on ''Series/{{Dallas}}'', it was mentioned in SpinOff ''KnotsLanding'', and Gary Ewing named his newborn son after his late brother. After the infamous ''AllJustADream'' ResetButton that brought Bobby back, ''Knots Landing'' stopped referencing its parent show.
* The shared universe of Series/{{Arrow}} and [[Series/TheFlash2014 The Flash]] brings up a few of these. Crossovers between the shows are paired (Arrow characters show up on Flash the same week that Flash characters show up on Arrow), and as such the first crossover tends to lead into the second. There is also a notable case with Deathbolt, a VillainOfTheWeek on Arrow who was locked up in Star Labs: a later episode of Flash made heavy use of him, with no explanation of where he came from.

* Vanessa Kraven had never interacted with Jessicka Havok in SHINE prior to show 28 but called her out in the lead up over a year's past encounter in Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}}. Cherry Bomb was the first wrestler in SHIMMER to lose to Candice [=LeRae=] but volume 80 revealed Bomb had a much more personal vendetta against her related to a Wrestling/{{WSU}} event.[[/folder]]
