** What ''Immortal Coil'' does for Data, "[[http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/Watching_the_Clock Watching the Clock]]"[[http://www.campornochat.com/> ]]by Christopher L. Bennett does for TimeTravel. The author employs some heavy-duty ArcWelding to every. Single. TimeTravel episode to smooth out ''Trek'''s notoriously tangeled TimeyWimeyBall into something resembling a coherent whole. And it works. [[CrazyAwesome Awesomely]].

* Though any newcomer can jump into ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' at any point without having to know what the general plot is for the series, they won't experience the deep appreciation a longtime fan will have over all the subtle references to previous games.

* Though any newcomer can jump into ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' at any point without having to know what the general plot is for the series, series (excluding the few direct sequels such as ''VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink'', ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaPhantomHourglass'', and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'' that specifically reference and build on the events of their preceding games), they won't experience the deep appreciation a longtime fan will have over all the subtle references to previous games.

** ''ComicBook/EarthX'' and its two sequel series Universe X and Paradise X are intentional works of pure continuity porn. Set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture (from the year 1999), the story explains, combines, and wraps up every continuity snarl, dangling plot-thread, and unexplained coincidence the writers could lay their hands on, including characters, dimensions, and devices no one's written about for decades. Fortunately, each series also features InteractiveNarrator characters to keep the readers on top of what they absolutely need to know for the plot, but it's still very likely you'll to spend more time reading ThisWiki or TheOtherWiki than the books themselves.

** The ''DuckTales'' comic arc ''Rightful Owners'', written by Warren Spector, is sort of a Don Rosa wannabe. The story tries to enforce that the classical comics, ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' and ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' all take place in the same continuity (a fact that is the official stance of Disney, but is severely hit by FanonDiscontinuity) through absurd amounts of (sometimes clever but often random) continuity references, but (in part because of ExecutiveMeddling) none of it is very understandable, leading to the story not being very well-liked.

* ''{{Taxi}}'' got away by having plenty of {{Continuity Nod}}s at a time that TV comedies still had an strictly episodic/ NegativeContinuity nature[[note]] (it would take a decade before ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' premiered and it would take almost another decade for them to start this)[[/note]], as well as [[HalfArcSeason having continuities featured as subplots uniformly in the last two seasons]]. The show also [[AnachronicOrder benefited from lacking a true timeline from seasons two onwards]].

** ''Film/Skyfall'' does the same, with MI6 moving into the old Universal Export offices from the earlier films after their riverfront headquarters are bombed. The exploding pen in ''Film/Goldeneye'' is lampshaded in a comment from Q.

* "Ayla and the Tests", in the ''WhateleyUniverse'', is probably this trope, since there is a ''ton'' of continuity polishing over every other character's stories for most of the Fall 2006 term, fixing a bunch of little tiny things the fans had spotted (or in a couple cases, things only the author had spotted).

** ''Film/RogueOne'' exists entirely to explain a minor plot hole from ''Film/ANewHope''. That said, the movie was critically acclaimed and was a box office success, because TropesAreNotBad.
