* In ''FanFic/RobbReturns'', both Oberyn Martell and Tywin Lannister think the exact same thing about magic returning: that some fool will attempt to bring dragons back, and thus risk another Summerhall[[note]]Where Aegon V met his death in a failed attempt to wake dragons.[[/note]]. Then, in the same chapter as Tywin, Viserys tells Daenerys he intends to find a way to awaken a dragon.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_cognate False Cognates]] are examples of words in different languages that independently mean the same thing and sound the same. They appear to be cognates, which are words with a related heritage, but they are actually completely coincidental. An example would be how many languages have the same word for mother, "ma".

* [[http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=2005&addr=050804 When Jon told Ellen his life was meaningless without her]], ''{{Garfield}}'' said it's meaningless anyway. Then we learned Ellen thought the same. Garfield said "Great minds think alike".
** [[http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=2011&addr=111011 Liz invited Jon to watch a figure skating competition on TV.]] Jon's reaction from his side of the phone line made Garfield correctly guess it.

* When [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]] couldn't decide if ''VideoGame/InFamous'' or ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'' is the better game, he challenged both developers to draw the rival game's main character "wearing women's lingerie;" the win would go to the better picture. The artists responsible for each company's entry both individually decided, for some reason, that [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/columns/extra-punctuation/6228-Yahtzees-Prototype-vs-InFamous-Challenge their nominated picture]] should also include a rainbow, a unicorn, and [[PowerPerversionPotential creative applications of the character's powers]].
** Compounding that is why Yahtzee proposed such a thing to begin with--both games came out so close together that, although they couldn't have ''possibly'' been ripping each other off, the premise and mechanics of each were startlingly similar, so the studios behind the games managed to pull this off ''twice''.
--->'''Yahtzee:''' Okay. Radical. Sucker Punch. I'm not angry. Just own up. Which one of you copied the other's homework? ...But then again, these are the same teams who both independently created sandbox games about superpowered assholes, so I guess it's not just GREAT minds that think alike.

** In episode 6, Anderson explains to Hellsing that he defies his master Maxwell's orders on a whim, prompting Hellsing to remark that it's strange to see her relationship with Alucard from the outside. The same episode also has these exchanges:
--->'''Heinkel:''' That was the last one. Good thing, too: I was afraid you'd run out of bayonets.\\
'''Anderson:''' Care to correct yourself?\\
'''Heinkel:''' S-sorry sir! You have bayonets for days!\\
'''Anderson:''' Bayonets for days.

* ''Series/{{Tattletale}}'': July 5, 1974: The question to the ladies was "You're the editor of Playgirl magazine for a day. Who's going to be next month's centerfold?" Dick Gautier was stumped as his wife, Barbara Stuart, was never really turned on by anyone he figured Barbara would come up with someone goofy, so he said [[UsefulNotes/RichardNixon President Nixon]]. The audience rose in derisive laughter at such a thought (Convy: "What I want to see is her face when she finds out what you said.") and then Barbara was brought onscreen. Her last-gasp response? "How about President Nixon?" Everybody in Studio 41 especially Barbara was stunned as the audience absolutely brought the house down laughing and cheering.

* Meta-example in the ''FanFic/ShadowchasersSeries''. The cards that Bruno uses are based on characters from ''Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland'' with a much DarkerAndEdgier theme, including an older version of Alice using a Vorpal Blade as a weapon. The author first introduced these cards in a fic called ''Legacy of the Duelist'', which appeared years before [[VideoGame/AmericanMcGeesAlice a certain video game with similar themes]] was released.
