* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' had a running Myth Arc regarding the characters preventing Skynet's creation and Judgment Day, though it also focuses on numerous subplots and a lot of personal character development.

* The ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' series appears on the surface to be a StealthBasedGame where you play as a BadAss who murders a lot of people with a fancy knife. Fair enough, but the series also contains a FramingStory that is largely omitted from the advertising: these ancient lives are being relived in the present day by a man named Desmond Miles, who is using a device called the Animus to access a VR simulation of his GeneticMemory. This comes about as the culmination of a millennia-long SecretWar between the [[TheKnightsTemplar Templars]] and [[TheHashshashin Assassins]] over the right to control humanity's future. The war is focused on a series of [[MacGuffin artifacts]] left behind by [[{{Precursors}} The Ones Who Came Before]], an ancient civilization that ''created'' humankind before dying in some kind of [[CosyCatastrophe catastrophe]]. Further, said civilization foresaw their doom and left behind messages embedded in these artifacts, as well as a special genetic legacy, all in an attempt to FlingALightIntoTheFuture so that Desmond, in 2012, can stop TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt from happening again. All of human history is [[WrittenByTheWinners a carefully crafted lie]] designed to conceal this struggle, as is revealed in cryptic "Truth" puzzles throughout the games.

** According to [[http://www.doctorwhotv.co.uk/continuity-of-the-daleks-63003.htm one theory]], the Time War forms a complex web of a myth arc going [[AnachronicOrder back and forth across the series]]. The Doctor [[Recap/DoctorWhoS12E4GenesisOfTheDaleks fails to prevent the creation]] of the Daleks and is earlier unsuccessful at destroying them at an early stage in his [[Recap/DoctorWhoS1E2TheDaleks first encounter]], which leads them to develop space travel and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E2TheDalekInvasionOfEarth become an all-conquering armada]]. They then [[Recap/DoctorWhoS4E9TheEvilOfTheDaleks develop a crude form of time travel]] and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E1DestinyOfTheDaleks resurrect their creator]] who [[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E4TheDaleksMasterPlan helps them refine it]], which they use to try and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E8TheChase defeat the Doctor at an earlier point in his life]] after declaring war against his people. After centuries of fighting and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E1Rose countless]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E3TheUnquietDead civilisations]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS13E1TerrorOfTheZygons lost]], the Doctor defeats the Daleks single-handedly by destroying his home planet, [[spoiler:[[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor except not really]]]], resulting in only [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E6Dalek a few]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E13ThePartingOfTheWays survivors]] falling out of time. A Dalek sect called "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E13Doomsday The Cult of Skaro]]" escaped out of the universe and returned after the war to rebuild the Dalek race. They are defeated, but their last surviving member [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E12TheStolenEarth rescues Davros from the Time War]], but then goes mad and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E13JourneysEnd engineers the total defeat of the Daleks]]. Only a few survive, but they rebuild their race [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E3VictoryOfTheDaleks from some of the very first Dalek DNA]] and depart to conqueror the universe again. Davros survives and attempts to [[Recap/DoctorWhoS25E1RemembranceOfTheDaleks secure the Time Lords' secret to perfect time travel]], but fails and his home planet is destroyed in the process.

** Despite having no solid canon, the site is focused on the agency hunting down and containing anomalous objects for the [[TheMasquerade preservation of normalcy]] and survival of the human race, [[spoiler: despite several [=SCP=] entries that suggest TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt isn't far off]]. Competing with them are groups that either want to destroy these objects, set them free, or worship them as PiecesOfGod.

* ''Series/OrphanBlack'' goes ''hard'' with the Myth Arc, with the clones of "Project Leda" hunt to find out how and why they exist, while being under constant surveillance and threat of the Dyad Institute. Season 3 complicated this with the introduction of [[spoiler: the male clones of Project Castor.]]

* Music/MarilynManson's late 90s albums, ''Music/AntichristSuperstar, Music/MechanicalAnimals'' and ''Music/HolyWoodInTheShadowOfTheValleyOfDeath'' are a trilogy according to Manson, exploring the relationship between death and fame. What's more, ''Holy Wood'' is apparently the prequel, despite coming last. The themes of gun violence and celebrity culture in America are still returned to periodically in Manson's latter-day albums.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' has such an arc, though it's subtle. So far it seems to be what big secret the author of Journal 3 found.
