* ''Manga/ToLoveRu'': Many of the girls do eventually become attracted to Rito, making the LoveTriangle between him, Haruna and Lala morph into a LoveDodecahedron and pretty much all of them have balanced screentime. In fact, the sequel ''To Love-Ru Darkness'', is aiming for the MarryThemAll (or at least, one of the harem members is actively trying to make it happen) and Lala and Haruna have been OutOfFocus, aside from ADayInTheLimelight stories.

* ''LightNovel/UndefeatedBahamutChronicle'': So far, the series has given all the girls in [[TheHero Lux]]ís harem equal prominence to the story, with each girl having a minimum of 2 episodes to develop their relationship with Lux. To hammer the point home, episode 10 features Lux going on a date with [[TheAce Celestia]], [[DefrostingIceQueen Krulcifer]] and [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Philuffy]] simultaneously. After that, [[BadassPrincess Lisesharte]] tells him she plans to dub him her personal knight. After that, he is introduced to [[ProfessionalKiller Yoruka]], the servant he never knew he had.

* ''LightNovel/InAnotherWorldWithMySmartphone'': The story starts out right away on this trope, with Touya meeting sisters Elze and Linze almost immediately and both of them presented as equally-viable love interests. By t time he meets Yumina (the first girl to actually propose to him and make her intentions clear), he gets told by {{God}} himself that polygyny is A-OK in this new world and only a few episodes later, Yumina agrees to share him with the other girls, making MarryThemAll the only sensible ending.

* The anime of ''VisualNovel/KamigamiNoAsobi'' takes this approach - Apollon tends to be placed first or last whenever the gods are in a sequence (e.g. he sings first in the ending theme, he is the last god Yui meets, etc.), but her relationship with him isn't that much closer than most of the other gods. Though, Loki and Balder more or less end up with each other, so that might eliminate them.

* ''LightNovel/{{MM}}'' has a two-tier format, with an abusive {{Tsundere}} and an [[DoesNotLikeMen androphobic girl]] as actual love interests, and a trio of tag-along girls for gags and {{Fanservice}}.

* As mentioned above, ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'' can subvert this, although depending on the route you take you can also play it straight or avert it.

* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' is aiming for a MarryThemAll endgame between [[TheHero Ash]] and six girls: Misty, May, Dawn, Iris, Serena and [[spoiler: Anabel]], giving them all similar screentime for CharacterDevelopment.

* ''LightNovel/DateALive'': Over time, the [[MagicalGirlWarrior Spirts]] grow more comfortable with sharing [[TheHero Shido]], even giving each other advice in how to improve their dates with him. They are still competing to be his number #1, however.

* ''VideoGame/{{Amagami}} SS'' takes this to its logical conclusion, being adapted in an omnibus format, with a ResetButton after each arc allowing each girl to "win", one after another. Its sequel, ''Anime/{{Seiren}}'', also follows this format for the same reason.

* In ''VideoGame/PromDreams'', Kyle Mason spends equal time with each of the three possible love interests. Justified, since [[spoiler:they're all trapped in a time loop, and when a love interest is killed on prom night, she disappears in the following loop, forcing Kyle to choose a different girl]].

** Oddly enough, Lala isn't put out by this at all. She's content to simply wait until he dies (and stays dead) so they can be together forever in the afterlife.
