* [[LivingShip The Reapers]] from ''Franchise/MassEffect'' return roughly every 50,000 years or so to wipe out all advanced life in the galaxy before returning to dark space as they have for at least 37 million years. Nobody puts two and two together because they go out of their way to make sure no definitive proof of their existence is left after their centuries-long genocides. Luckily for the galaxy, the [[BenevolentPrecursors last guys to get the treatment]] [[FlingALightIntoTheFuture left a little something special for the future civilizations]]...

* People today may not view it this way but at certain latitudes, ''winter'' used to be a once a year time of crisis and only if the right preparations were taken the community (or family) would make it through it. In the days of imported bananas year round this is of course much less of a problem. There is a reason autumn was the traditional hunting and butchering season: Every animal product that could be preserved through the winter (e.g. as bacon or sausages) and that would not be a drain on food reserves as a living animal was a plus in getting through the cold, dark days.

A killer is on the loose. Sometimes the killer is a person, but more often it's some sort of supernatural monster. Many people... dozens sometimes, and sometimes even hundreds... of people have fallen to this fiend. No one's noticed because the killer only comes out to play every few years, or every few decades, or even ''[[ExtyYearsFromNow every few centuries]]''. Regardless of the time involved, no one has connected this long string of victims.
