* In ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'', protagonist Wataru Kurenai gets latched onto by CoolBigSis Megumi Aso, but neither of them ever realizes that their parents (Otoya Kurenai and Yuri Aso) were a couple briefly. On top of that, Wataru eventually learns that his childhood friend Taiga Nobori is actually his half-brother[[note]]Their mother Maya was the Fangire Queen; Taiga's father was the King, while Wataru was the product of a fling with Otoya[[/note]]. And that's not even getting into the tangled web weaved by the [[SixthRanger IXA]] armor...

Both of them are also revealed to be the older brothers of In ''Manga/HimoutoUmaruChan'', Umaru's friends Kirie and Sylphin.Sylvie have big brothers too; they all work for the same company and are friends with Umaru's brother Taihei (and they eventually befriend Umaru themselves without any influence from their sisters). The odd one out is Umaru's friend Ebina, whose older brother ran away from home when she was little -- but he turns up in one story arc where Taihei has a business trip and they end up working at the same restaurant.

* In talking to just about anyone over 40 involved in the boxing/fighting community in New York's Capital Region you might get the impression that everyone knew Mike Tyson before he was famous in one way or another. Ask around any gym in the area and there's a good chance someone trained with, promoted, interviewed, or fought Tyson before he was a household name.

* The 1989 ''Film/{{Batman}}'' movie decided that having SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker threatening everyone in Gotham City wasn't enough of a reason for Batman to hate him, so [[spoiler:it turns out that he was the one who killed Bruce Wayne's parents]].
** They did the same thing with the Kingpin in the ''Film/{{Daredevil}}'' movie. And Quill in ''Film/ThePhantom'' movie (although he was only TheDragon). And Sandman in ''Film/SpiderMan3''.

** Also in the Dressorsa arc we learn that Law's ParentalSubstitute [[spoiler: Donquixote Rocinante]] doesn't only connect him to Doflamingo, but also to Sengoku, as [[spoiler: Rocinante was Sengoku's adopted son]]. This in turn connects Law to Luffy, as Sengoku and Garp are friends.

* Used extensively in MegCabot's Boy series. Each book has (mostly) different characters, but they all seem to have known each other, some for justified reasons (a lot of them do work at the same company, after all), but others through completely random coincidence. Notable examples include Stacy Trent turning out to be Mitch Hertzog's sister, or Amy Jenkins, annoying HR rep to Mel and later [[CorruptCorporateExecutive evil]] [[MeanBoss boss]] to Kate just happening to have somehow screwed Jane over in the past as well. Also, Nadine's fiance Tony from the first book just happens to show up and hire Ida Lopez to work in his restaurant in the second, and apparently Aaron Spender and Cal Langdon both slept with Barbara Bellerieve.

* Utilised in one storyline of ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'', as part of a flashback. Several members of the cast (Chromedome, Drift, Ratchet, Skids and Whirl) turn out to be in one way or another connected to each other as part of a story involving a faked terrorist plot and a heist. Through the story, there are several other cameos and connections to other major characters, chief among them Orion Pax, Prowl and [[spoiler:Shockwave]].

** Which is more of a ContinuityNod, since the same scene is shown from different character viewpoints in different stories where they all happen to converge on this one time and place in Kadie's Bar. SinCity is full of similar scenes connecting two or more stories at the same time/place but different perspectives.

* ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' uses this to an extreme in the third and fourth games, particularly the third.
** To demonstrate how bad it is: By the end of the third game's last case, protagonist Phoenix Wright is pretty much the ''only'' relevant character who is not either related to [[spoiler: the Feys]] or was directly screwed over in a way by the events of DL-6, or both. And even then they indirectly had huge influence on his life by setting up 90 of the 100 reasons he decided to become a Defense Attorney.
