* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion'' initially plays out like a FixFic AlternateContinuity of the franchise: everybody is alive [[spoiler:and human]], the new {{Eldritch Abomination}}s can be defeated through cheery songs, and [[AdorableAbomination Charlotte]] is the TeamPet. Then Homura reveals that she remembers all of the events of the show and how none of this makes any sense. And ''then'' things get worse.

* ''VideoGame/Doom2016'' was advertised as a ContinuityReboot of the ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' franchise, like with ''VideoGame/Doom3'', but certain developments in the game imply that [[spoiler: it's a sequel to the original series, with the Doomguy being the same as from ''Doom'' and ''Doom 2: Hell on Earth'', albeit it not as we know it from the actual game.]]

* 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 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.
* When Creator/PeterDavid first began work on ''Comicbook/FallenAngel'', there were some ''strong'' hints that it was actually a sequel to his previous ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' series, and that the heroine, "Lee," was actually Supergirl herself. This was changed when the series [[ChannelHop was moved from DC to IDW]], preventing any such revelation from ever occurring. A later named Lin was later introduced, and WordOfGod is that she's essentially a LawyerFriendlyCameo from the Linda Danvers version of Supergirl.
* ''[[ComicBook/DCRebirth Rebirth]]'' reveals that ''ComicBook/TheNew52'' is one to both [[spoiler:[[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths New Earth]] and ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'', as ''The New 52'' was '''not''' caused by [[ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}} Barry Allen messing with the timeline]], but was actually created by Dr. Manhattan in a misguided attempt to create life. It also was never a true reboot of the New Earth continuity, but rather a case of Manhattan pulling a CosmicRetcon by messing with the timeline and people's memories.]]

* In the Fire Emblem series, the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Jugdral games]] are implied to be a distant prequel to the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Akaneia games]], taking place many years earlier on a different continent. Loptyr, the games' BigBad, is implied to be a member of the Earth Dragon tribe like the Akaneia games' villain Medeus, and the deity Naga is the same in both games. Likwise, while ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' is directly stated to be a distant sequel to the Akaneia games, the existance of Priam, who claims to be a decendant of Ike, also implicitly puts it as a sequel to [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Tellius games]] as well, though how distant is uncertain.
