* In ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' there are many different incarnations of Link and Zelda that occur in different time periods. [[WildMassGuessing Fans have come up with numerous explanations]] for why Link and Zelda reoccur such as reincarnation, descendants, or just some sort heroic spirit that reappears when evil threatens Hyrule. However, on a meta-level, Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto says that he sees Link and Zelda like old theatrical cartoon characters like in WesternAnimation/{{Popeye}} who can be recast in many different situations.

* This is why ''Costume Fairy Adventures'' doesn't really have an experience system unless you choose to put it in - it keeps them from developing traits that don't fit in certain milieus. You're supposed to be able to take the same small group of fairies and apply them to an enchanted forest, a steampunk city, a generic space opera ship, a spoof dungeon crawl and the pie contest at a small village, and those are just the ones in official published material. It helps that the game objective is to be a disruptive element to whichever poor setting is hosting the mischief that week, because it means that not quite fitting just means the pranks are funnier.
