* ''HonorableHogwarts'' did this to the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' universe, giving LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters roughly equal focus and Simultaneous Arcs.
* ''AdultStuck'', a FanSequel to ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'' (see ''Webcomics'' below), does this.

* ''TheUrthbloodSaga.'' While the titular badger is in many ways the central character, he's not the protagonist (we only rarely see things from his POV, in fact). The focus shifts to a variety of characters and groups.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' was officially described as having Ensemble Cast for a while, then later marketed the game as being "the first ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' with a female main protagonist", [[InternetBackdraft prompting a good bit of the fandom to cry sexism]].

It didn't help that Lightning ended up having a bit of a PinballProtagonist problem that caused her to often be overshadowed even with CharacterFocus on her in the greater franchise.

* ''LyricalNanoha'': While Nanoha herself is pretty clearly the protagonist of the first season, later seasons and works begin splitting the focus up between more and more characters.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/OrphanBlack'' is an interesting borderline case. Although it's clear Sarah is the main protagonist, as the show evolved Alison, Cosima, Helena and even Rachel were given their own storylines that at times were completely independent of Sarah's. The case is interesting because all of the aforementioned characters were played by the [[Creator/TatianaMaslany same actress]].

* ''Fanfic/YoungJusticeDarknessFalls'' and ''Fanfic/YoungJusticeTitans'', being extensions of the WesternAnimation/YoungJustice story utilize this to the fullest, though Beast Boy, Nightwing, Superboy and Ms. Martian do get a lot of focus within the different focuses.

* ''Fanfic/PokemonTheOriginOfSpecies'' shares the role of primary character between three protagonists. They avoid typical PowerTrio interactions, with Leaf being the reporter who wants Pokemon to be treated with respect, Blue wanting to become League Champion and guide the continent to a safer future, and Red being the researcher who is looking into how Pokemon work and what's it all mean, anyway.



* ''Film/PulpFiction'', considering all the protagonists follow their own plot and their ways only cross at random.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[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.
