* In ''[[{{Marvel 2099}} 2099: Manifest Destiny]]'', we find out [[spoiler: Comicbook/CaptainAmerica's fate: he once again ended up in a block of ice as the end of the Heroic Age as he'd done at the end of World War II and is revived in the 2099 time period. Amusingly, during the "One Nation Under Doom" event, a clone of Steve Rogers created to be a puppet had this as a cover story]].

* ''Anime/YourName'': When Sayaka says that [[spoiler:a meteorite splitting off from comet Tiamat and striking Itomori]] is just a what-if, Tessie points out that Lake Itomori [[spoiler:is not only also a meteor crater, but was formed 1,200 years ago - the orbital period of comet Tiamat...]]

* ''ComicBook/BeastWarsUprising:''
** The story begins with a Cybertronian becoming dissatisfied with the status-quo, forming a rebellion that breaks out into full-blown war, three centuries after the end of the last one. Several characters make note that it's another war, with the supercomputer The Oracle quoting the Battlestar Galactica example.
** In the backstory, the inhabitants of the planet Rebirth fled Cybertron to get away from the war. Over time, a trio calling themselves the Optimus took control, and became utterly fascistic, stamping down on any dissent, leading to the rise of a violent rebellion identified as the Malignus. Then, during the 21st century the Decepticons showed up, and the planet got involved in the war again. The end result was the entire population of Master were forced off their world by humans, and made to live on Cybertron, under the thumb of a ''different'' autocratic, oppressive regime.

* TheNinjaWarriorsAgain: [[spoiler:The game's [[DownerEnding ending]] explicitly says that because history repeats, the new government you were fighting for will eventually become as bad as the one you overthrew.]]
* HistoryRepeats: Massively in ''Gunstar Superheroes'', which is a sequel which covers the events of the original game happening again in the distant future.

** Bodie's fate is quite reminiscent of Wallace's. He also becomes disillusioned by The Game's casual violence and decides to talk to the cops, [[spoiler:only to be killed before he can cooperate]].
** Namond takes elements from two figures. First, he comes from a family noted for their connection with the drug trade and it's assumed that he will take up that mantle as well despite having no heart for the game. Sounds like D'Angelo, but he gets a rare happy ending because Wee-Bey realizes the drug trade isn't right for him and allows Namond to be adopted by Colvin instead. On the other hand, he uses the exact same line as Clay Davis "I'll take any motherfucker's money if he's giving it away!" and shows an interest in politics and debate after being adopted by Colvin.
** Randy loses his mother figure early in life, his talents go mostly overlooked and unappreciated, is repeatedly screwed over by the system, and winds up adopting a thug attitude. Sounds like Bodie, although we don't see if he ends up the same way.



** Michael Lee becomes the new Omar Little.

** Michael Lee becomes the new Omar Little. In fact, the last thing we see him do is shoot someone in the knee during a robbery, just like we saw Omar do during Omar's first robbery in Season 1.


Added DiffLines:

** Kenard shows the text-book signs of being a sociopath. Has dreams of becoming a great street legend like Omar. Sounds like Marlo Stanfield, who himself, is a sociopath that had dreams of becoming a street legend and saw his chance to act on it, after the Barksdale crew was brought down. [[spoiler:Kenard saw his chance by killing Omar Little, knowing the Stanfield crew was looking for him. It's suggested Crutchfield arrests him for Omar's murder, but it's not known if he'll get charged as an adult and convicted. Given that he's very young, there's a chance he might just get sent to a behavior correctional center, which in a way is a Karma Houdini example, just like Marlo]].
** Valchek becomes the new Burrell/Frazier after being promoted to Commissioner.

* When Creator/JohnLennon saw for the first time a picture of [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yasuda_Zenjirō Yasuda Zenjirō]], who was Creator/YokoOno's grandfather, he supposedly said "that's me in a former life", to which she responded "don't say that. He was assassinated". Come 1980, and what would the tragic fate of John Lennon be?

* In the series finale of HBO's ''Series/TheWire'', several characters end up in situations that harken back to the pilot episode (in tandem with {{call back}}s). Most notably, Detective Leander Sydnor goes to Judge Phelan and asks his help investigating a major case (which Detective Jimmy [=McNulty=] did, in a conversation with the exact same character, five seasons prior). The WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue insinuates that Baltimore is a cyclical place, and that characters will always end up in certain roles (e.g. [[spoiler:Michael]] becomes the new [[spoiler:Omar]], [[spoiler:Dukie]] becomes the new [[spoiler:Bubbles]], etc).
** On a more positive note, the formerly irresponsible Carver is implied to be on his way to becoming [[ChangingOfTheGuard the new Daniels]].
