* 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.

* In ''ComicBook/BruceWayneFugitive'', when putting all the pieces together as to who framed Bruce for Vesper Fairchild's murder, [[spoiler:he's more than convinced that it was sheer luck that a government agent, acting on SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor's behalf, hired David Cain to do the deed, neither of them realizing he knew Bruce was Batman.]]

* In a specific instance, the formation of Music/TheTravelingWilburys musical supergroup would likely have been dismissed as being a ContrivedCoincidence if it didn't actually happen. Creator/GeorgeHarrison and producer [[Music/ElectricLightOrchestra Jeff Lynne]], who were working on an album together, met up with Creator/RoyOrbison for dinner one night, and when they finished Harrison realised that he'd left his guitar at Music/TomPetty's house and went to collect it. While they were there, Petty suggested that they use Music/BobDylan's home recording studio to work on the album, since Harrison's own home studio was back in England. Petty tagged along with the others to Dylan's house, and all the assembled musicians decided that since they already were hanging out together, they might as well jam together, which ended up resulting in their first single.
