** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E1PartnersInCrime "Partners in Crime"]] has Donna and the Doctor both sneak into the same office building ''twice'', crash a product presentation, and creatively acquire a list of customers from two office workers with cubicles literally three metres away -- and who print out the lists on the same networked printer -- without ever seeing each other. This continues almost all the way to the climax of the episode. Other instances include Donna parking her car and walking away, and mere moments later the TARDIS appears right behind the car; running down intersecting streets and stopping just short of the actual intersection; and so forth. Donna even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the trope by listing off a number of bizarre events that she investigated, believing the Doctor to have been involved, but dismisses the one where the ''Titanic'' almost crashed into Buckingham Palace... which was the only one that the Doctor was ''actually present for''.

* Chapter 45 of ''Manga/KaguyaSamaWaKokurasetai'' features a shot where Kaguya and Shirogane are literally within five feet of each other while rushing in opposite directions, not seeing each other because Kaguya just got out of a taxi and neither having any idea that the other was looking for them (Kaguya's cellphone wasn't working, so she couldn't tell everyone that she had already snuck out of her house).
