* Even ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'', one of the most stagnant and continuity-free strips in newspapers, has gotten in on the act a few times. In a strip from February 2017, Garfield thinks back on a time when he couldn't sleep: November 8, 1992. Sure enough, in the November 8, 1992 strip, Garfield can't get any sleep because of "night noises" keeping him awake.

* ''WesternAnimation/AnExtremelyGoofyMovie'' has several. In the ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'' episode "Puppy Love", PJ got a crush on a girl after she recited her poetry. He does the same thing for the same reason in this movie. In the episode "Date with Destiny", Goofy went on a dancing date with one of Max's school staff members--he does the same thing here. The final scene has some to the first movie: the trophy engraving was reminiscent of what Max and Goofy said to each other when their relationship was at its tensest moment, and Bobby calls back to two jokes in one line when he uses the word "cheesa" to describe the pizza he's holding and pointedly calls it "scrumptious."



* ''WesternAnimation/Cars3'':
** The film opens the same way as the original film -- a black screen intercut with footage of racing cars, while [=McQueen=] goes through his pre-racing ritual.
** During the Demolition Derby, Lightning tells Cruz to "turn right to go left", a teaching Doc gave him in the first film. [[MasterApprenticeChain Much like Lightning at that time]], Cruz doesn't see any sense in his words.
** When Cruz reveals her idolization of [=McQueen=], she says she used to watch him "flying through the air", referencing when Lightning leaped through the smoke during the pile-up in the first movie.
*** A picture of the scene itself can be seen at the museum in the Rust-eze Racing Center.
** Mater is in the pits watching all of [=McQueen=]'s races, showing that [=McQueen=] kept his [[WesternAnimation/Cars2 promise]].

* As per the series standard, ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragonTheHiddenWorld'' has several.
** Hiccup makes Toothless an automatic tail fin so he can fly on his own which makes Astrid reference "Gift of the Night Fury", questioning that he made Toothless one before and he didn't want it then. Hiccup answers that Toothless didn't have a reason at that time, but he does now; he wants to follow and court the Light Fury.
** After Hiccup and his gang bring a Crimson Goregutter on the island, it begins to play with a baby Gronckle Fishlegs is taking care of and accidentally knocks over some pole, producing DisasterDominoes knocking over few buildings, just like at the beginning of the first movie after Hiccup shoots down Toothless.
** The Light Fury's [[spoiler:rescue of Hiccup is framed in exactly the same way as Toothless's rescue of Astrid in the first movie was: the human is tumbling through the air, gets caught, and then looks up to see the dragon ducking its head down to smile at them.]]
** While [[spoiler:being held prisoner by Grimmel]], Ruffnut references her crush on Eret in the second movie (saying that that ship has sailed and she's over him now), and also mentions Fishlegs and Snotlout fighting over her while expressing her misgivings about both of them.
** [[spoiler:Hiccup kills Grimmel in a similar manner to how he tried to kill Krogan during their first encounter [[GivingThemTheStrip (i.e. untying his prosthetic leg)]].]]
** In the epilogue Astrid rushes past Hiccup on Stormfly and looks back, silently challenging him to a race. It's the same interaction they had at the end of the second film, and Hiccup even gives his son a look as if to say: "some things never change."

* Early on in ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', Hamilton speculates that dying must be like "a beat without a melody". In the song where he duels Burr (The World Was Wide Enough), he begins rapping after the shot with no orchestral or choral backup.

* In ''VisualNovel/TheLabyrinthOfGrisaia'' Yuuji's friend Danny was really looking forward to meeting the presumably badass communications officer Immortal Robbie only to find out he was actually an OccidentalOtaku who was actually being called ''Imouto'' Robbie because of his obsession with, well, [[LittleSisterHeroine imouto characters.]] In ''VisualNovel/GrisaiaNoRakuen'' Yumiko heads to a small cafe hoping to meet a retired intelligence officer and figures she'll find some sleek professional badass, but nope!

* For another TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness example, one of the first pieces of fiction in the ''World of Darkness'' corebook was a sermon by Marco Singe, the Pain Prophet of New Delhi, and introduced the concept of "the God-Machine" to the gameline. Come ''TabletopGame/DemonTheDescent'', it's revealed that Singe's family runs a MegaCorp that has a special connection to the God-Machine, gaining proprietary knowledge of occult physics from its work.

* At the start of ''WesternAnimation/BeautyAndTheBeast'', the Beast slashes a portrait of his human self with his claws. Forty-two minutes of the movieís runtime later, Belle comes across the damaged painting. The prologue feels so different from the rest of the film that seeing such a direct reference to it is quite unexpected.
