* Even though VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles is advertised as a [[ThematicSeries thematic sequel]] of the original VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles, the events of the two games happen roughly at the same time. Both games have a common origin: [[spoiler:a scientist named Klaus accidentally destroys the universe and gets [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe spit in half]], each half creates a separate universe in which the two games take place. In the end of the ''Xenoblade 2'', the good half of Klaus warns Rex and his party that he will die soon, because in the ''other'' universe the evil half of Klaus is about to be killed by Shulk and his party. Both half are implied to die simultaneously]].

* Season 1 (or Part 1) of ''WesternAnimation/ThreeBelow'' takes place during the events of season 3/Part 3 of its' predecessor in the ''WesternAnimation/TalesOfArcadia'' trilogy, ''WesternAnimation/{{Trollhunters}}''; several events from the latter take place and/or are referenced during ''[=3Below=]'' episodes. In turn, Aja and Krel, two of the three protagonists, made an appearance in ''Trollhunters'' Part 3 as a PoorlyDisguisedPilot.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' had two books - ''A Feast For Crows'' and the first volume of ''A Dance With Dragons'' overlap in time, each following half of the POV character cast. George Martin initially drafted them as one single book but then it occurred to him he had written far too much for a single book; the two books are divided not chronologically but geographically.

* Like most gaming groups on the site, the Whartson Hall Gamers at ''Podcast/RPGMP3'' usually play (and record for upload) one game at a time. However, they once played a pair of games (Cold City and Traveller) in two separate groups, with two separate recorders, in the same room. The games have nothing to do with each other, except for once in a while when an in-joke gets shouted across the room.

* The "Emma and Lilith" find-the-difference games come in paired sets, one for each girl's perspective of the same story. The scenes in Lilith's games are highly detailed paintings with a dark-ish color palette, while Emma's resemble childrens' book drawings and are colored in bright pastels.

** The sequel, ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2'', does this again for the level "Time and Fate". You first play as BigBad Raul Menendez, controlling him during his UnstoppableRage as he tries to race back to the hotel his sister is at to save her, then control shifts back to Mason as he, Woods and Hudson fight their way to the same location to catch up with him.

Added DiffLines:

* Pretty much all over the place in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'' as some of the character stories take place at the same time with some of the characters running into each other during their missions. For example: Chris and Piers are on a mission in a European country dealing with bio-hazards and run into Sherry and Jake who are in the area trying to escape some pursuers, the latter offering some aid in fighting a monster. Later in the games Chris and Leon get into a little scuffle while trying to pursue [[spoiler: who they think is]] Ada before being forced to split up. This is even shown from a gameplay perspective in whichever character's story you choose (which sadly is not skippable in certain gameplay parts).
