** ''Sailor Moon'' is the most famous of this, with the monsters of the week -- at least 80% of the time -- also being MonogenderMonsters, females in this case. Also, with only two exceptions (Cienicienta, but not because she's strong, smart or otherwise special, just because the authors wanted to make Usagi's birthday-episode into a two-parter, and Regulus, beacuse the writers forgot to kill him off), none of the monsters ever survive the episode they were introduced in.

* Integral to the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' series. Invariably, they're possessed objects turned rampaging beasts which the heroines fight, defeat and purified, albeit there are cases of animals and even people being possessed. In the first [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure two]] [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar seasons]] the villains summoned ghost-like spirits (Zakenna and Uzaina respectively) to created the monsters; in following seasons, the bad guys used different tools to achieve the same results, such as [[CoolMask masks]] ([[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Kowaina]]), spheres (Hoshina from ''[=PC5=]'''s sequel ''GO!GO!''), diamond-shaped cards ([[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Nakewameke]]), [[OurSoulsAreDifferent wiltering Flower Hearts]] ([[Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure Desertrian]]), [[BrownNote corrupted musical notes]] ([[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Negatone]]) and [[MonsterClown clown noses]] containing a [[MacGuffin Cure Decor]] ([[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Akanbe]]). The [[Anime/DokiDokiPreCure Jikochuus]] are the exception to the rule as they are created with [[TheHeartless the selfish and petty thoughts of a person's heart]] without the need of possessing anything.

** One notable example from ''Anime/DokiDokiPrettyCure'': [[spoiler:The BiggerBad and TrueFinalBoss is the final MonsterOfTheWeek, since he was only indirectly responsible to the plot and was never the BigBad. He even gets defeated in the same way like any other MonsterOfTheWeek.]]

*** Every show since ''Den-O'' has followed the "monster of the fortnight" formula, though ''[[Series/KamenRiderOOO OOO]]'' did have a few Yummies that only lasted one episode. Mostly averted in ''[[Series/KamenRiderGaim Gaim]]'', although that's because the show's mainly about the different agendas of the multiple Riders so far, with the monsters a looming threat mostly in the background. Averted so far with ''[[Series/KamenRiderGhost]]'' though the Ganma all having the same basic body suit probably has something to do with that.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' tends to follow this format with the Season Premieres and Finales, while generally keeping to a SliceOfLife format for in between (it could almost be called "Monster Of The Season"). In fact, whenever a major villain makes a second appearance[[note]]Not counting Season 5's BadFuture scenarios[[/note]] said second appearance is about the ponies [[HeelFaceTurn swinging them to the side of good]].
