* ''Webcomic/GorgeousPrincessCreamyBeamy'' parodies and plays this straight ([[ScheduleSlip albeit, in an arc-based way]]) with its Instant Monsters ,[[MagicalGirl for obvious reasons]]. So far, three of them have been defeated, with the former two being sentient everyday objects, and the third being human (however, the side effects of the potion on him were unintended).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/SpiderManJapan'' has Professor Monster's Machine [=BEMs=] serve this purpose, with nearly every episode having a different monster assist the Iron Cross Army in their evil schemes until Spider-Man ends up soundly defeating them, frequently with the help of his HumongousMecha Leopardon.

* ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' usually features a cast of recurring villains, especially a BigBad who serves as [[ArcVillain the main antagonist of the current season's storyline]]. However, there are a sizable number of {{filler}} episodes (especially during, but not limited to, the second season) that contain minor villains and monsters who do not appear outside of single (or a few) episodes.



* ''WesternAnimation/MenInBlack'' has the variant of "Alien of the Week", albeit in some few episodes the villain of the week is human.

Added DiffLines:

* In the Tournament of Power Arc in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', there are episodes that generally involve fighters outside of Universe 6 and 7 that never get heard from again after they are taken out. For instance, one episode pits 3 Universe 4 warriors against Master Roshi, while one episode pits two assassin warriors in an episode focused on Tien. Even though they are introduced at the start of the tournament, they don't get any real screentime until their respective episodes.

** ''Series/KamenRiderBuild'' indicates that ''Ex-Aid's'' style is going to be an ongoing trend; it has kaijin called Smash, but fights against recurring Rider-like villains quickly become more a lot prominent.

* ''Beyond the Deepwods'', one of the books of ''Literature/TheEdgeChronicles'', is basically this. Twig has to face a (deadly) menace every ''chapter'' in this book.



* In ''Literature/PrincessHolyAura, the frequency of the monsters increases, so by the end of the book the Maidens are close to facing a monster per week, which also is lampshaded, though not all monsters are shown in action. Some of the monsters they face are:
** A dhole
** A shoggoth
** A crazy rhyming axe murderer
** A phantom clown

* ''ElChapulinColorado'' had most of its episode base on a Monster of the Week/Villain of the Week dynamics, although most monsters were a ScoobyDooHoax, so probably will be more accurate to say always Villain of the Week.
