* ''Series/TheDefenders2017'': The four Defenders first meet up in Midland Circle while investigating the same mystery surrounding The Hand, eventually stumbling upon one another in the middle of a huge fight.
** ''Series/Daredevil2015'': For the most part, the protagonist plotlines focus on Matt Murdock and Karen Page, resulting in this happening.
*** Throughout the first part of season 1, Matt and Karen turn out to both be pursuing Wilson Fisk without the other knowing it. Matt is pursuing Fisk head-on through his nighttime activities as the Devil of Hell's Kitchen, while Karen is pursuing Fisk through following the Union Allied money trail with help from Ben Urich at the ''New York Bulletin''.
*** All three of Nelson & Murdock's first cases turn out to be in some form tied to Wilson Fisk: first is Karen's case, after being framed up for murder and almost killed. Then in "Rabbit in a Snowstorm," James Wesley hires Nelson & Murdock to defend one of Fisk's assassins. Then in "World on Fire", Nelson & Murdock gets hired by Elena Cardenas, an elderly friend of Sgt. Brett Mahoney's mom, on a tenancy dispute with her landlord, the sleazy Armund Tully, who is ''another'' lackey of Fisk's.
*** Through the first part of season 2, all three members of Nelson & Murdock are invested in the manhunt for Frank Castle and know that. But a case of this trope happens in "[[Recap/Daredevil2015S2E4PennyAndDime Penny and Dime]]", as Matt and Karen both find out about Frank's family at the same time and under different circumstances: Matt learns it as Frank [[ActionFilmQuietDramaScene talks to him about his family's demise in the cemetery]] while waiting for the police to arrive, while Karen learns it from [[RearWindowInvestigation breaking into Frank's house]].

fight. [[Series/IronFist2017 Danny Rand]] goes there after learning that Midland Circle is where the Hand moved a lot of money they were laundering through Rand Enterprises. Series/LukeCage2016 is led there after finding a Midland Circle valet ticket in Cole's belongings, wrapped up in a roll of cash from Cole's off-the-books job. Series/JessicaJones2015 is led there thanks to following up a lead on the suicide of an architect who was stockpiling explosives and learning that Midland Circle is one of the architect's projects. And [[Series/Daredevil2015 Matt Murdock]] is led there because he's following Jessica, having been tasked by Foggy Nelson to keep an eye on her.

Matt is pursuing Fisk head-on through his nighttime activities as the Devil of Hell's Kitchen, while Karen is pursuing Fisk through following the Union Allied money trail with help from Ben Urich at the ''New York Bulletin''. \n*** It isn't until the eighth episode of season 1 that Matt realizes from conversing with Ben that Karen's investigation is also linked to Fisk. So subsequently, Matt finds himself being able to take on Fisk by day as Nelson & Murdock in addition to his nighttime work as the Devil of Hell's Kitchen.
