** The revived series has such an episode in series 2 and 3 doubling as {{Bottle Episode}}s. Usually called "Doctor-lite" episodes in the fandom, these two, titled [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E10LoveAndMonsters "Love & Monsters"]] and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E10Blink "Blink"]] focus on {{Muggles}} with only peripheral access to the Doctor's world, and how those characters react to High Weirdness without the Doctor around to explain what's going on. "Love & Monsters" notably had point of view shots of the central character referring to other episodes.

** "New Avengers" provides an even better example: Kang the Conqueror traps the Avengers in another time, so Comicbook/IronMan calls some of their crimefighting allies (including Franchise/{{Spider-Man}}, Comicbook/WarMachine, [[Franchise/FantasticFour The Thing]], Iron Fist, and Luke Cage) to form their own superhero team. These heroes ([[WolverinePublicity plus]] {{Wolverine}}) try to work out their differences and try to stop Kang from taking over the world.

* ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life}}: Opposing Force'' and ''Half-Life: Blue Shift'' follow the events of the first ''Half-Life'' from the point of marine Adrian Shepard (one of the troops sent to clean up the mess in Black Mesa by shooting who knew about it, thus one of the bad guys in the base game) and security guard Barney Calhoun (a Black Mesa security guard and friend of the protagonist) respectively. While Barney went on to a supporting role in ''Half-Life 2'', fans are still waiting to find out what happened to Shepard.

** Inverted with two of the show's other {{Clip Show}}s, "Disclosure" and "Inauguration", which are essentially ''Upper''-Deck Episodes. Both focus on the Stargate program as it's seen from the higher levels of politics, with SG-1 only appearing in flashbacks (clips from previous episodes) as their missions are discussed.
