* Many of the new characters in ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' are revealed to have connections to the old cast. Yukizome was the CoolTeacher of the ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' cast, Kizakura was best friend of Jin Kirigiri, Sakakura was head of Hopes Peak Security [[spoiler: and inadvertently helped drive Hinata to becoming Izuru Kamukura]], [[ChildhoodFriends Andou, Izayoi and Kimura]] [[spoiler: were expelled thanks to Komaeda's efforts to get the school exams cancelled]] and Mitarai was not only a member of Class 77-B, but a close friend of the Imposter and Tsumiki [[spoiler: as well as an unwilling cooperator of Junko Enoshima's plans]].

* TheRomanEmpire in the first century (CE or BCE). ''Series/{{Rome}}'' and ''Series/IClaudius'' get this down to a T. Not only are the entire aristocracy of Rome related six different ways, but they know, grew up with, nearly married, killed the brothers of (etc.) the rest of the important people in the ancient world.

Added DiffLines:

* As Creator/TamoraPierce's ''Tortall'' series(es...) lengthened, every protagonist developed close relationships with every other. Basically: Alanna [[note]]heroine of the ''Lioness'' quartet[[/note]] serves King Jonathan, whose queen establishes an elite combat unit taught by Onua, who employed Daine [[note]]heroine of the ''Immortals'' quartet[[/note]]. Later on, Daine befriends the Prince of Carthak (whose dad was buddies with Daine's magic teacher), whose future personal physician travels to the Copper Isles and falls in love with Sarai, whose maid/spymaster Aly [[note]]heroine of the ''Trickster'' duology[[/note]] is the daughter of Alanna and George, who is a ''very'' distant descendant of Beka [[note]]heroine of the ''Provost'' trilogy[[/note]]. Several years later, Daine works alongside Keladry [[note]]heroine of the ''Protector'' quartet[[/note]] to fortify a refugee camp, right before Keladry kills Blayce (the King of Scanra's pet mage) as she was commanded to do upon being knighted, which had been her dream since childhood because she admires Alanna so much.
* Literature/HarryPotter's wand contains a feather from the pet phoenix of Harry's future mentor, whose childhood crush was later murdered by Voldemort, who would become Harry's nemesis because Harry's mom cast a spell which sorta-kinda-killed him.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'', players can take the 'Destiny' background, which (among other things) means they'll frequently interact with other characters who have the background.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/LoveLiveSunshine'', it turns everyone in Aquours besides [[NewTransferStudent Riko]] know each other from the past, thanks to the abundance of ChildhoodFriends. Justified in this case, as the cast all live in a small beachside town.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'', during the last season, The Mother makes it appearance, but as it turns out, Ted is the last one of his group to meet her. She first meets Barney, [[spoiler:and convinces him to go after Robin]], then befriends Lily on a train, then Marshall by giving him a ride, then Robin, [[spoiler:by stopping her of running away on her wedding day]], lastly, she meets Ted. When he reveals to them he met her, Lily and Marshall even state how great she is and Barney tried to introduce them on the start of the last episode.

* In ''Literature/{{Dracula}}'', the Count's lawyer's fiance's best girlfriend's ex-suitor's former mentor just happens to be Dr. Van Helsing, who knows how to kill vampires. Plus, he moves in practically next door to the ex-suitor's insane asylum. Granted, Whitby wasn't exactly a metropolis back then, but it's still a bit much...
** And of course, it's a bit of a coincidence that the first person he targets is Lucy, that lawyer's fiance's friend, which is how Van Helsing actually gets involved.



* In ''PlanescapeTorment'', you come across a rather staggering array of people with one degree of separation from one or another of The Nameless One before he got amnesia, including all your party members [[spoiler:except Nordom and Fall-From-Grace]]. Mainly {{justified|Trope}} in that the game is about a personal quest for identity and therefore you will logically be hunting down people with a prior connection to you, but many of the more incidental side-quests show a rather astounding array of this either way.

** Specifically, Abed is shown to be the one character who had a hand in bringing everyone together. He compares himself to the villain of their superhero origin story.
** The episode ends with Abed realizing it was really [[spoiler: Chang, of all people,]] who brought them all to Greendale.

* ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'' has 9 protagonists and only four preexisting relationships in that group. ''However'', once time travel gets involved, things get more complex: [[spoiler:Phi]] is actually the daughter of [[spoiler:Diana and Sigma]], and the latter is an employee of Akane, who is Junpei's ChildhoodFriend. One of Junpei's teammates in [[VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors the first game]] got injured investigating Free the Soul, a cult which is led by minor character [[spoiler:Delta]], who is [[spoiler:Phi]]'s twin brother. Delta created an A.I ([[spoiler:Q (Sean)]], who is one of the main 9) and based the A.I's thought patterns off of [[spoiler:the original Sean]] who died from an illness that he could have survived, had the surgeon who was supposed to operate on him not died in a car crash (only [[spoiler:it wasn't ''really'' a car crash that killed him,]] ''that'' was just a lie told to console his daughter, Akane. [[spoiler:He was actually wrongly accused and executed by the state]].) ''Much'' later, [[spoiler:Q!Sean unknowingly]] works alongside Mira (another of [[spoiler:Delta]]'s employees), who is dating Eric [[spoiler:and murdered his mother years ago]]. Hilariously, Zero [[spoiler:(Delta)]] actually retroactively explains most of these connections in his anecdote at the start of the game.

* Almost all of the main characters in ''ChronoCrusade'' are connected to Chrono in some way, and through him to each other. Chrono met Rosette and her brother, Joshua, when they woke him up from a long sleep in a tomb. Joshua was then kidnapped by Aion, Chrono's former friend. Chrono and Rosette join the Magdalan Order to try to find Joshua based on advice from Father Remington, a man who was trying to convince Joshua to join the Order because of his powers. Remington was also [[spoiler:Mary Magdalene's guard in the Order when Chrono kidnapped her back in 1870. The Elder was her foster father of sorts.]] During their search for Joshua, Chrono and Rosette run into Azmaria, who has powers startlingly similar to Joshua [[spoiler:because they're both Apostles]]. They all start to look for Joshua together, and run into a "jewel witch" named Satella. Satella is searching for a missing family member, and finds out that [[spoiler:her sister, Florette, has become Fiore, Joshua's maid and a servant of Aion.]] Pretty much the only characters that don't have a strong connection to Chrono, Rosette or Aion are Sister Kate (Rosette's commander in the Order) and Father Gilliam, an ally of Chrono and Rosette's in the order.
