** The same happened in ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'', by the same head writer. The Checkmate Four are the {{Badass}} leaders of the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Fangire]], and all have noticeable similarities to their ''555'' counterparts. Rook is TheBrute, only interested in his own amusement but it brings him into combat with the Riders often enough that his job security is assured (see Kitazaki), Bishop and Queen police the other Fangire, eliminating members of the not-[[AlwaysChaoticEvil Always-Chaotic-Evil]] monster race who won't stay with the program (see Takuma and Saeko), and King is the BigBad who runs the MegaCorp the world doesn't know is evil (okay, ''technically,'' Murakami wasn't a member though he spent most of his time with the other three, who lost their fourth early on.) The main difference? It's [[spoiler: King who has a change of heart.]]

* A strangely literal example: while the previous three ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' books contained Death as a [[AnthropomorphicPersonification character]], it took until the fourth book, ''Discworld/{{Mort}}'', to feature him as a main character. This is doubly so in French-speaking countries, where 'Mort' is a word for 'death', so to them, the fourth Discworld book ''is'' Death. And in the discworld the unlucky number is ''eight'' - twice four.

As a similar point of reference, building floors and apartments are (mis)numbered accordingly [[MissingFloor to omit the fourth floor]][[note]]The US does the same with the number 13. Floors will go straight from 12 to 14, while the UK skips Rm13.[[/note]] or substitute the numeral with an alternative sign, such as the letter F or 3A, and some Japanese people prefer to say "''yon''" (the ''kun'yomi'' for four) instead of "''shi''" (the conventional ''on'yomi'').

''on'yomi''). Apparently the Japanese word form ''shi ni'' (four twos), which translates to 'death', gives [[{{Discworld}} the number eight]] a related association.

* In ''Film/DiamondsAreForever'', when trying to kill James Bond at Slumber Inc., Albert Wint pushes the button labeled "4" on the incinerator control panel's Oven subpanel. Thanks to some well-placed forgeries, it doesn't work.
