* In the WhateleyUniverse, all the Phase stories have titles "Ayla and the...". Probably because Phase was/is a pompous rich kid with years of prep schooling, the novels have meaningful chapter titles as well. The first novel has five chapters named for the books of the Old Testament. "Ayla and the Tests" has eight chapters named for some of the labors of Hercules. Pompous and too much prep school.
** "Ayla and the Birthday Brawl" had chapter titles taken from Spenser's "The Faerie Queene".

* ''{{Tasakeru}}'': Instead of titles, each chapter opens with a haiku that describes the events within.

* [[Creator/PhilthonJones Caught Chatting]] follows the pattern of TwoAndAHalfMen, naming each episode after a quote from it.
* ''IlivaisX'' has each chapter as a "day", which makes sense given each one takes place within a rough 24-hour period (though it tends to be more divided on when the main characters sleep). Also, most of the chapter titles not only relate to the specific MonsterOfTheWeek, but also somewhat to the character interactions. For example, "Shifting Hearts" not only refers to how they fight a TransformingMecha that becomes the "heart" of a CombiningMecha, but also to how this is the point where Mille and Iriana start definitively heading towards being an OfficialCouple.
* The name of every chapter of ''TheSagaOfTuck'' is a pun on "Tuck", with [[OddNameOut the exceptions of 28-29, 43, and 104-117]] (yeah, it's long), which break from its usual first-person narration.
