Added DiffLines:

*''The Saga of Seven Suns'' by Kevin J Anderson has a vast number of characters, with each chapter focusing on one character, much like ''A Song Of Ice And Fire'' does. Obviously, some characters get more focus than others.

* This trope is a standard for the vast majority of [[TabletopRPG TabletopRPG's]], as they are expected to provide entertainment for all players, which usually includes giving all their characters similar ammount of spotlight. If it isn't in play, then either the game has a very atypical concept, or the GM is running it incorrectly.

** The main story already has [[ShellShockedVeteran Marcus]], though [[CloudCuckoolander Canon!Lyra]], [[BadassTeacher TCB!Cheerilee]], [[KnightInSourArmor TCB!Trixie]], [[BadassPrincess Canon!Celestia]], [[{{Troll}} Canon!Discord]], possibly the [[TrueCompanions Canon!Mane 6]], and [[AxCrazy Viktor Kraber]] (who gets enough screentime and [[TearJerker characterization]] to possibly serve as the tritagonist of the Battle of Boston) take up plenty of the spotlight as well.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'', although the protagonist and some villains have remained the same characters throughout.
* ''Doctor Who'''s spinoff ''Series/{{Torchwood}}''.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' has five main characters- Frank, Charlie, Dennis, Mac and Dee. In any given episode any of them can be the OnlySaneMan and any of them can be the focus of the episode.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseman'' starts off with the focus on the titular [[ByronicHero [=BoJack=]]], his issues, growing depression and attempts at becoming famous again, with the other characters being part of his narrative. As of Season 2, while still being the main character, [=BoJack=]'s issues take a backseat, giving [[BrokenAce Princess Carolyn]], [[TheThingThatWouldNotLeave Todd]], [[AntiNihilist Mr. Peanutbutter]] and [[TheSmartGuy Diane]] time to deal with their own problems and start their own plot lines and share about the same amount of screen time if not more than [=BoJack=] depending on the episode.

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

* ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'' in the same way as ''Baccano''. They're based on books written by the same author. Although some readers mistake Mikado for the protagonist, since his arrival is what kickstart the plot and he is the first one to narrate the story and receive plot focus, the author has since stated that, if anyone is the protagonist, it's Celty.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MegadimensionNeptuniaVII'' takes this approach. The first act mixes things up by featuring the two previous protagonists equally. The second gives each [[PhysicalGod CPU]] their own independent but interconnecting sub-chapter. By the third, everyone has equal investment in the plot, and the story isn't afraid to switch perspectives or focus on the new characters who are driving the story. Neptune, who is [[MediumAwareness completely aware she's supposed the be the series' main character]], finds this existentially uncomfortable.
