The Green Hornet and Kato investigate on mysterious (and seemingly random) kidnappings. Doc Savage has mysterious villains rading his personal asylum to free some of the brainwashed criminals being reformed inside. The Avenger and the Spider raid a warehouse used by criminals to send kidnapped people to Africa. All of this is revealed to be part of a single villainous plot.

* In the ''Series/MurdochMysteries'' episode "Murdoch on the Corner", Inspector Brackenreid is investigating the death of a pastor who was beaten to death with a blunt instrument, while Murdoch is trying to find a "[[SerialKiller sequential killer]]" who dispatches their victims with a single gunshot. It eventually becomes clear the same killer is responsible, and the deviation from the pattern in the pastor's case is a clue as to the motive.
* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'' does this again in a 2013 episode that has Brackenreid investigating the death of a prisoner who apparently hung himself in his cell, while Murdoch and Constable Crabtree are investigating a brutal robbery in which a shop owner was murdered. They eventually realize that both cases are related.

** The season 7 episode "Castle, P.I." has Castle earn his private investigator's license so he's able to investigate along with Beckett despite the DA's edict that he can no longer work homicides. Unfortunately it doesn't work and he's still booted off the case, causing him to start his own investigation and follow a different set of leads from the NYPD team that lead him to cross paths with them several times (as well as helping to get a strong-but-wrongful suspect off the hook).

Esposito and Ryan are both worried he'll crack the case before they do and try to use Beckett to weasel info out of him while he tries to weasel info out of her to continue his investigation.
