* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

* This occurs throughout ''{{Anime/Robotech}}'' as a way of tying together the different groups of characters in the different sub-series. Max Sterling and Miriya Parina, of the ''Macross'' cycle, eventually have two daughers: Dana and Maia Sterling, who star in the ''Robotech Masters'' cycle and ''WesternAnimation/RobotechTheShadowChronicles'' movie, respectively. Likewise, Claudia Grant of ''Macross'' is eventually revealed to have a brother, Vince Grant, who is one of the stars of ''The Sentinels'' and who appears in ''The Shadow Chronicles'' along with his wife, and whose son, Bowie Grant, stars in the ''Robotech Masters'' cycle. Marcus Rush, another of the stars of ''The Shadow Chronicles'', is the younger brother of Marlene Rush, a bit character in the ''New Generation'' cycle.

* ''StarWars''. Not only is the EvilOverlord whom the main character met through a long series of coincidences his father, but the woman that he happened to meet through the same series of events is his sister. The prequels exacerbate it by introducing a pitiless onslaught of AlreadyMetEveryone;

** Also, in ''TheEmpireStrikesBack'', Darth Vader and Boba Fett share a brief exchange ("No disintegration." "As you wish.") In ''AttackOfTheClones'', Mace Windu kills Jango Fett while rescuing Anakin Skywalker, along with Obi-Wan and Padme, and then in ''RevengeOfTheSith'', Anakin kills (or assists in killing) Mace. So, Boba's dad died because of Vader, but Vader then killed the man who killed his father.

* Happens in ''IncarnationsOfImmortality'', by the end of the series. Greatly assisted by the presence of several "temporary immortals" (the longest-lived being Parry) ''and'' a literal Fate playing a centuries-long chess game against the Devil. [[spoiler: Niobe (Lachesis, the middle Aspect of the incarnation of Fate, formerly Clotho (another Aspect)) is the mother of Orb (Gaia, Incarnation of Nature, from Niobe's second marriage) who's married to Parry (Satan, Incarnation of Evil). Orb's child with Mym (Mars, Incarnation of War), is Orlene (God(dess), Incarnation of Good). Orlene once dated Norton (Chronos, Incarnation of Time), and bore a child (who later died). Niobe's granddaughter, Luna (via Niobe's son from her first marriage), is dating Zane (Thanatos, Incarnation of Death). Kerena (Nox, Incarnation of Night) is a distant ancestor of Orlene's dead husband, and accidentally introduced into her line the curse that would kill Orlene's child. Parry's demon ex-lover, Lilith, is a concubine of Mym. Another Aspect of Fate, Nicolai (Atropos), is a friend of Orb and helped find an adoptive family for Orlene. There's also a very strong hint on the first page of ''Under a Velvet Cloak'' that Kerena's sister Katherine is a distant ancestor of Niobe, thus also of Orb, Luna, and Orlene.]]
* The focus of ''DirkGentlysHolisticDetectiveAgency'', hence the "holistic" in the title -- everyone is connected through the main character Richard. Which only goes to prove that Dirk's ideas about the interconnectedness of all things are not crackpot theories, despite the cynical use he makes of them.

* Every single case of ''TheHardyBoys'' would somehow turn out to be connected to the one their father was investigating. This was dropped entirely for later series.

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...

* The three main male adult characters in ''Manga/HimoutoUmaruChan'' are Umaru's older brother and his co-workers, two of whom are high school buddies. Both of them are also revealed to be the older brothers of Umaru's friends Kirie and Sylphin.

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''.
