* ''[[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants [=SpongeBob=] [=SquarePants=]]]'': While the titular sponge is clearly the focus of the show, there are ten main characters who (particularly in the more recent seasons) get a good amount of episodes all about them individually.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Even though the show is named after its protagonist, Kaeloo, all the main four get equal amounts of attention in the show.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'':If Shiro wasn't automatically assumed to be TheProtagonist as the leader of Voltron, one would be hard-pressed to define him as such particularly for Season 1 as a whole, as it starts with Lance as the DecoyProtagonist during the first half of episode 1, then continues the rest of the season with a focus on a character/pair/the team as a whole per scene, episode, or arc. Even in season 2, which concentrates only on three characters' arcs, Shiro's being one of them, the focus shifts more and more to Keith and Allura's towards the end (and since some of Shiro's and a big part of Allura's arcs wind up tied to Keith's, really it's Keith's arc that gets a majority of the focus in S2). The promotional summary for S1 actually implies this, naming all Paladins instead of the likes of "Shiro and company." (Infamously in some circles, as it calls all the Paladins "teens," while Shiro is vaguely alluded to being an adult in his early-to-mid-20's and currently [[ShrugOfGod flip-flopped]] depending on the source). The series also makes it a once per season habit of giving Pidge a DayInTheLimelight episode, being also the only character to appear in all episodes of season two.

* This is a central concept of ''Literature/{{Unique}}'', in which the plot revolves between four different groups: Vampires, Werewolves, Magi, and Veiðimaðr (Hunters). Often the same scene will be retold multiple times, each time from the point of view of a different character - and things come across quite differently depending on whose point of view it is.

* ''Literature/{{Durarara}}'' in the same way as ''Baccano''. They're based on books written by the same author.

* Many of the films of RobertAltman, especially ''Film/{{Nashville}}'' (which interconnects a series of vignettes in and around the title city), ''Film/ShortCuts'' (a {{Crossover}} adaptation of nine Raymond Carver short stories), and ''Film/GosfordPark'' (which interweaves many subplots above and below stairs, although Kelly Macdonald's character comes closest to being the protagonist).

** The short stories in ''Episodes'' focused to specific characters in each chapter, such as Alice in "Zombie Western", Top Speed in "Playing with Top Speed", or Clantail in "Clantail and Friends". Though even in here, who the protagonist in some stories could be ambigious, such as "Memories of the Blue Magical Girl".

* ''LightNovel/MagicalGirlRaisingProject'' doesn't really have a protagonist. In ''Unmarked'', Snow White, Ripple, and Swim Swim can be considered the main characters as these three gets the most development. Then by ''Restart'', who one might consider the protagonist is a bit blurrier. One can consider Pechika as the protagonist of Restart, as she feels similar to Snow White. Some can also argue that Pfle and Nokko-chan can be considered as the protagonist of Restart. By the time ''Limited'' kicks in, nobody really feels like the protagonist. Even Unmarked survivor [[spoiler: Ripple]] comes across more as a BigGood than a protagonist. If desperate enough, one may interpret [[spoiler: Pythie]] as a VillainProtagonist. ''JOKERS'' also has the same vibe as ''Limited'', where nobody is a stand out protagonist. This is lampshaded by Prism Cherry, who wants to be the protagonist in her story; however is just another normal person. In [[AllStarCast ACES]], the amount of survivors in the story is at an all time high, which causes this trope to play straight; since everybody was to some extent a protagonist.

** Since ''QUEENS'' technically [[spoiler: has the same cast as ACES, minus the ones who died]], this trope is played pretty straight. Though, because as of the time of the writing of this example; QUEENS is still in progress, this may change in the forseeable future.
