This indicates that VideoGame/{{Downfall}} takes place sometime after the events in VideoGame/TheCatLady.]]

* The Wiki/SCPFoundation takes place in the same universe as TheWanderersLibrary. Also, due to the fact that Wiki/SCPFoundation "has no cannon" it can share the same universe with anything, since it is up to the reader to decide what is or isn't cannon. Several crossover stories have been written by various authors, crossing it with a wide variety of works.

** The "movies-within-movies" 'verse includes ''Film/KillBill'' (It's a reworking of the failed TV pilot ''Fox Force 5'' mentioned in ''Film/PulpFiction''. The actress playing The Bride is not just Uma Thurman, it's Uma Thurman as Mia Wallace.) Creator/SonnyChiba's appearance as a [[LegacyCharacter new Hanzo family member]] is an in-joke linking his ''Shadow Warriors'' series to ''Kill Bill''. The shared character of Earl [=McGraw=] links that to Film/FromDuskTillDawn and the Film/{{Grindhouse}} movies. From their we hop to [[Creator/RobertRodriguez Rodriguez]], who tells us ''Film/{{Machete}}'' and ''Film/SpyKids'' share the same universe.

** Other family connections: Lee Donowitz from ''Film/TrueRomance'' is the son of Sgt. Donny "The Bear Jew" Donowitz from ''Film/IngloriousBasterds''. Furthermore, Alabama from ''True Romance'' is the same Alabama that Mr. White mentions in ''Reservoir Dogs''. According to Tarantino, [[Film/DjangoUnchained Django and Brunhilde]] (whose maiden name is "Von Schaft") are the great-grandparents of [[Film/{{Shaft}} John Shaft]][[note]] Therefore the ''Shaft'' revival movie adds yet ''another'' appearance by Creator/SamuelLJackson to the 'verse[[/note]]. And ''Film/TheHatefulEight'''s Oswaldo Mobray, aka "English Pete" Hicox, is related to Creator/MichaelFassbender's Sgt Hicox from ''Film/InglouriousBasterds''.

** Warner Bros was actually [[WhatCouldHaveBeen supposed to launch]] their DC cinematic universe in 2011 with the release of ''Film/GreenLantern'', but poor reception caused the movie to under-perform, and set the possibility of a shared universe back until their next attempt with 2013's ''Film/ManOfSteel'' which, despite a mixed-reception, turned in a much better profit to continue from.
* Fox had already started something similar with their ''Film/XMen'' film continuity by creating more character-centric spinoffs, helped by how massive and fluid the X-Men series already was. ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' was the start of this, followed up by ''Film/TheWolverine'' and there are talks of a Gambit movie. A ''Film/{{Deadpool 2016}}'' movie languished in DevelopmentHell before being worked on, but its connection to the X-Men franchise is uncertain.
** Similar to Warner Bros, Fox also had a WhatCouldHaveBeen example with their ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' [[Film/FantasticFour2015 reboot]]. It was originally going to be set in the same universe as their ''Film/XMen'' films, but ''extremely'' poor reception to said movie ended up destroying any hope of going forward with a sequel, or possible crossover, with the new Fantastic Four cast.

* According to WordOfGod, ''Film/{{Soldier}}'' is set in the same universe as ''Film/BladeRunner''. Whether SGT Todd came before, after, or at the same time as Roy Batty's little romp in Los Angeles is unclear, but it's a safe bet that Todd has also seen the Tannhauser Gate.
