* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', each arc is named to evoke insects or pests (Imago, Hive, Extermination). The sequel, ''Literature/{{Ward}}'', does the same thing with concepts related to light or darkness (Daybreak, Flare, Shade), and the arc that connects the two stories is called Glow-Worm.

* The Manic Nuzlockes occasionally make use of this. [[https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/nuzlocke_forum/completed-manic-39-s-argent-ante-t25328.html Argent Ante]], a Nuzlocke of the Gen 2 Remakes, had a [[PlayingCardMotifs playing card]] theme, so all the episode titles from Chapter 2 onwards were gambling terms.


* LetsPlay/CallMeKevin labels his videos as '[Name of Videogame] but' and then adds how he fails or messes up, usually by picking 'I pick every bad option'.

* Every chapter of Elizabeth Sandifer's ''Series/DoctorWho'' analysis blog ''[[http://www.eruditorumpress.com/blog/author/phil/tardis-eruditorum/ TARDIS Eruditorum]]'' that covers a televised ''Doctor Who'' story is a relevant quote from a different Doctor. Interspersed between these are other posts with the categories "Pop Between Realities, Home In Time For Tea" (influences on the series from beyond the Whoniverse); "Expecting Someone Else" (contemporary ''Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse'' works featuring the Doctor); "Time Can Be Rewritten" (later Expanded Universe works featuring this Doctor); and "Outside the Government" (Expanded Universe works that don't feature the Doctor, or televised things that aren't exactly part of the series - interestingly, Sandifer considers ''Series/Sherlock'' to fall into this category, rather than "Pop Between Realities"). During the hiatus, when books and audios become the main storyline, they stop being "Expecting Someone Else", and get a new convention where they're titled by a relevant quote from the series by someone other than the Doctor.
