However in the fourth season it was revealed that it takes place after a TimeSkip. [[spoiler:Lilo pops up as an adult with her [[StrongFamilyResemblance identical looking]] five year old daughter in tow]].

* ''VisualNovel/{{Snatcher}}'', being the second game directed by HideoKojima following the original ''VideoGame/MetalGear'', features several references to his previous work. Most notably Gillian Seed's robotic sidekick, who was modeled by his creator after the "Metal Gear menace from the late 20th century." Other references include Junker chief Benson Cunningham being a former FOX-HOUND strategist and the head of the Snatcher project being none other than Dr. Pettrovich Madnar, the creator of the original Metal Gear. However, numerous inconsistencies introduced in later ''Franchise/MetalGear'' sequels has made the series hard to fit into the ''Snatcher'' continuity anymore.

** Of course, ''Marathon: Infinity'' features both alternate universes and the death of a universe, with the implication that there's something after said death (since one can potentially escape it). Considering the similarities in both verses, particularly how [=AIs=] work, ''Halo'' may have been intended as an AlternateUniverse of ''Marathon'', or even its successor after Marathon's universe "died". Yes, they might have pulled a ''Bioshock'' a decade before ''Bioshock'' did it.

* ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'' has story-wise no connection with the earlier games whatsoever for most of the game, until at the very end it's revealed to be a prequel/sequel/taking place on an alternate timeline when the player character is teleported to Rapture, the setting of the first two games.
** The Burial At Sea DLC affirms this trope further, alternating between timelines of both the main campaign but also of the first Bioshock.

* As Website/{{Cracked}} [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/4-unlicensed-crossovers-hidden-in-famous-comics_p2/ pointed out]], Creator/JackKirby threw in some subtle hints that his ''ComicBook/NewGods'' series for Creatir.DCComics was actually a continuation of his run on ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'' over at [[MarvelComics Marvel]]. And his later, creator-owned series ''Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers'' was clearly a [[LawyerFriendlyCameo lawyer-friendly sequel]] to the Fourth World books.
