* Every planet will have one capital city or another "spot of activity", and controlling that spot means instantly conquering the entire planet. These planets are also almost invariably 100% monocultural, with only one government that needs to be factored in to any plan.

* [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha]] has some pretty unlikely meetings, such as Arf and Alisa Bannings, or Hayate, Fate, and Nanoha in season two. Vivio also happens to run into Riot Force Six rather than, say, a police officer.

** In "Aftermath" the script just throws its hands up and acknowledges the ContrivedCoincidence when Avon and his ArchEnemy Servalan survive a massive space battle only to run into each other while stranded on an alien planet.

** Justified in "Cygnus Alpha" when it turns out Blake and Avon both worked on the abortive Federation effort to develop a matter transporter. When this trope is lampshaded, it's just pointed out that it was a very large project.

-->'''Avon:''' Why should I be? It has a perverse kind of logic to it. Our meeting is the most unlikely happening I could imagine. Therefore we meet. Surprise seems inappropriate somehow.

* Inverted during ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' episode "Slimer, Come Home". Ray sits down rather than searching. When Egon asks what he is doing, Ray says he is working on a theory that if you stay in one place long enough every person you've ever met will eventually pass by. Egon is about to comment on the sheer ridiculousness of this when one of Ray's grade school teachers stops and says hello.
