"We are all connected" isn't just hippie-dippie jargon; in Fictionland it's a universal constant like gravity, electromagnetism, and the weak and strong nuclear forces. In a narrative with LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters (or even as few as two), these will [[HowToGatherCharacters invariably be drawn together]] no matter how far away or distinct the characters and their troubles are. They probably won't stick together as strongly as the CharacterMagneticTeam, but what ends up happening is that everyone meets at least once and they build at least a working relationship. Essentially, every character works on a different aspect of the plot; while one tracks down the [[AngelUnaware mysterious]] WomanInWhite, another fights the killer after her, and a third is trying to find out where the killer gets his orders from.

Added DiffLines:

* Dr. Edward Roivas declares as much during the prologue to ''VideoGame/EternalDarkness'', as the game details the human race's efforts to stop Pious Augustus from summoning [[EldritchAbomination an Ancient]] to Earth, chronicling two millennia's worth of history in the process.
-->"This is not ''my'' story, nor even the story of the Roivas family. It is the story of ''humanity''."

* During the first part of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', Link helps a number of characters of various races in their homelands. Seven years later, the majority of them discover that they are actually the sages of various elements. While exceptions exist, the pattern is sufficiently established that, when Link goes back to his youth and meets Nabooru, the player can easily guess that the same thing will happen to her.

* It's a major tenet of the fictional religion Bokononism in ''[[KurtVonnegut Cat's Cradle]]'', called a ''karass''. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by the narrator at one point when a near-stranger shows him a collection of photos; he reflects later that they were all part of his ''karass'', [[spoiler:their fate being to bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt]].

* The cast of ''DeptHeavenApocrypha'' has developed a tendency to become either distantly or directly involved in each others problems. Characters whose plots haven't fully begun yet like Monica and Meria are especially prone to this.

* ''Literature/CloudAtlas'' presents an unusual example. There are six stories, taking place at different times in the same history. Each stories makes a cameo in the next segment, but otherwise they are only related to each other through symbolism and parallelism.

** ''Literature/DirkGentlysHolisticDetectiveAgency'': Combined with TheLawOfConservationOfDetail and ChekhovsArmoury. All of the seemingly unconnected characters (including the Electric Monk) are all connected together.

--->It is a small world.You donít have to live in it particularly long to learn that for yourself. There is a theory that in the whole world there are only 500 real people--the cast, as it were. All the rest of the people, the theory suggests, are extras. And what is more, they all know each other. And itís true. Or true as far as it goes. In reality the world is made of thousands upon thousands groups of about 500 people, all of whom will spend their lives bumping into each other, trying to avoid each other, and discovering each other in the same unlikely teashop in Vancouver. There is an unavoidability to this process. It is not even a coincidence. Itís just the way the world works, with no regard for individuals or for propriety.

* ''Love Soup's'' premise is based on the exact opposite. We have Alice and Gil, two Londoners who would be perfect for each other - if they knew they other existed. In the final episode you can see them sitting in the same theater without noticing each other - even though they are the only ones not laughing.
