* The girl group Music/{{LOONA}} are doing this for their pre-debut phase. The first 8 members debuted in a solo video featuring one member during [[ADayInTheLimelight their month]], adding that member to the group roster. The remaining four members also debut on a monthly basis, just not necessarily in their particular month.

* ''Anime/ZoidsGenesis'' tries to play with this a bit, by making characters take one episode or so to actually join the team, but otherwise is the usual: The series starts with [[KidHero Ruuji]], the first episode has [[TheLancer Re]] [[TokenMiniMoe Mii]] and [[OldMaster Ra Kan]] (Not [[Manga/MahouSenseiNegima that one]]) appear as somewhat ambiguous figures (Even if [[SpoilerOpening the OP ruins this]]) but are revealed as good guys next episode. [[TheChick Kotona]] [[ShotaCon Elegance]] appears in ep 4 and joins in ep 5, [[TheBigGuy Garaga]] appears in ep 5 and joins by 6, [[TheSmartGuy Ron]] appears AND joins in 6, even if he doesn't gets his Zoid until ep 9, and then there's a small gap until [[SixthRanger Seijuurou]] joins in ep 10.

Added DiffLines:

* Due to the "ten episodes per season" nature of the anthology series ''Series/{{Fargo}}'', characters important to the story can be introduced at any point. In the [[Series/FargoSeasonOne first season]] alone, FBI agents Budge and Pepper aren't introduced until the seventh episode, but they remain important recurring characters through the finale.

* The first five episodes of ''[[XMenEvolution X-Men Evolution]]'' are almost solely devoted to this, generally with both the X-Men and the rival Brotherhood recruiting a new member in each episode (mainly the Brotherhood, as we can see). In order: Nightcrawler and Toad in "Strategy X", Shadowcat and Avalanche in "X-Impulse", Rogue in "Rogue Recruit" (though she was mostly detached from the Brotherhood, and joined the X-Men in the seventh episode), Blob in "Mutant Crush" and Spyke and Quicksilver in "Speed and Spyke". This is averted with the new recruits in the second season, who are introduced all at once. Only Magma and Boom-Boom get any particular focus episodes.

* ''Literature/TheRailwaySeries'' utilized this novel by novel for engines, each one getting an entire spotlight book to themselves (though some would make a quick introduction in another's before having a more developed one in their own). This was repeated in the ''ThomasTheTankEngine'' AnimatedAdaptation, which ran most of the novel's stories in order of their appearance.

* A particularly prolonged example is the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, where the main characters each debut in their own movie before at last banding together in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' - though Black Widow had to make do with getting introduced in Iron Man's [[Film/IronMan2 second movie]]. In the movie itself, they're also introduced in this manner with different S.H.I.E.L.D. agents going out to recruit them.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{Mindwarp}}'': The first six books (of ten) each introduce a new character through their own discovery of superpowers and pursuit by alien assassins, though from the second book on, previous characters would appear to aid the new kid. Once the crew is all assembled, we rapidly learn what's going on and launch the true plot, with multiple POVs in each book.
