* The episode of ''Series/{{Castle}}'', "Linchpin", briefly displayed a room that looked very much like the page image, as belonging to a statistics genius -- the strings started at one murder, the branches were cause and effects, and they converged on [[spoiler:WorldWarThree]] at the other side.

In particular, the researcher postulated that by committing the murder, all the effects would come to pass, though there are characters that doubt the accuracy of his predictions. [[spoiler: We never find out either way as the murder is thwarted.]]

* Similar to the Web of Fate example above, with Exalted, in the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'', Jadis (She-Beast) uses a sort of string-and-pin 'compass' to track the actions of Marzena, who wants to take possession of one of her fellow students. It goes crazy when a probability mangler strolls into the general area.

* ''WebVideo/JoueurDuGrenier'': In the special about old superheroes shows, Grenier is reduced to connect with strings the plot elements of the Japanese ''[[Series/SpiderManJapan Spider-Man]]'' series to make heads or tails of the first episode's story. Problem, he has no idea where Spider-Man fits in all of this.

--> '''King:''' No, no conspiracy anything.
--> '''Sebastian:''' Oh, you don't have to be bashful. I got several myself. One I'm currently working on ties the Illuminati to the owners of all 30 Major League Baseball teams. I got some extra string if you need it.
