The Phileverse is the specific setting of The X-Files
and its spinoff The Lone Gunmen
also takes place in the Phileverse, although this was not obvious at the show's start. The term is sometimes used as shorthand for describing a setting that is like The X-Files

was also linked to the Phile Verse
in the episode "Brothers Grim," in which the main character was advised to contact Agent Mulder at the FBI.
