* ''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.

** ''Series/KamenRiderBuild'' indicates this 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.

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' arguably boils down to this... except it's "villain for the next month and a half", due to the length of the fights.
** The series didn't adopt this format until Part 3 began and Stands were introduced, as Parts 1 & 2 were arc-based. Interestingly enough, this format helped the popularity of the series, as the fights were unique and the Stand users diverse.
