* The [[Creator/LarryNiven Niven]] & Pournelle novels ''Lucifer's Hammer'' & ''Literature/{{Footfall}}''. The later one was particularly egregious in this regard. Justified in Niven, Pournelle, & Flynn's ''Fallen Angels'' as many of the characters are connected through science fiction fandom.
* In ''Escape From Hell'' (the sequel to Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle's ''Literature/{{Inferno}}'') every other person Allen Carpenter meets is [[ContinuityNod someone he met in the previous book]], or someone who's met one of those people, or both.

* The Creator/MarvelComics universe includes a concept called the "Nexus-Being" or some such, which describes the person who is the focus of their universe. That role is filled by the ComicBook/ScarletWitch: her [[SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}} father]]'s a mutant {{supervillain}}, her [[ComicBook/TheVision ex-husband]] is a robot superhero, her [[ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}} brother]] married into [[ComicBook/TheInhumans the royal family of a secret city]] that was TouchedByVorlons, her sister is dating a member of the Summers' famously TangledFamilyTree, and she herself got [[WitchSpecies inbuilt magic powers]] from a Chaos demon.

* ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' uses this to an extreme in the third and fourth games, particularly the third. 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]], wasn't 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.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheWildThornberries'' provides an InUniverse example: when the family learns that [[WildChild Donnie]]'s biological parents were primatologists killed by poachers, Nigel and Marianne actually recognize their photo, having met them once years before. They take this as a sign that they were meant to be the ones to find Donnie and adopt him.
