* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' had such an arc, though it didn't come to the forefront until season two.[[note]]Creator Alex Hirsch admitted that the first season was a bit of a test run to see how people would react to the show.[[note]] The show's first season revolved around learning the secrets of the show before the second season narrowed in on the goal of uncovering the identity of the Author of the Journals and...well, [[spoiler:the series wrapped up with an apocalypse]] if you want to know how things escalated from there...

* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' has the ongoing myth arc of Mordecai's relationship with Margaret (which is on hiatus whilst she goes to university), Rigby's awkward relationship with his brother Don, and information about Benson's past that shows why he is such a hothead. The episodes of the show are only 10 minutes long and most of the story is in the half of the show that doesn't feature the MonsterOfTheWeek, so a single plot development can span quite a number of episodes.



* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' had such an arc, though at first it was subtle. Creator Alex Hirsch admitted that the first season was a bit of a test run to see how people would react to the show. From the end of season one onward, is where the mysteries really begin to unfold. The myth arc initially revolved around the identity of the author of the journals, and later the mystery focused on what secrets he had discovered. Old references and characters were given more focus, [[spoiler:Bill Cipher (The triangle guy whose image has been seen since episode one)]] became an official character and had "big plans" for the titular town, finding the author became more crucial [[spoiler:and is finally revealed in "Not What He Seems]], and we finally discovered what Stan was up to [[spoiler:which is constructing some kind of portal under the Mystery Shack's basement to save his brother.]] Oh yeah, and [[spoiler:the series wrapped up with an apocalypse]]...

** Even before that there was Harry's war with The Red Court following the events of ''Grave Pearl'' and Harry's dealings with TheFairFolk. The series has dipped it's hands into a few arcs.

** However, the Series never actually explain the real circumstances behind the War with the Angels in the context of the Show itself ([[AllThereInTheManual there are however ancillary materials that clear up the plot]]), leading to the inevitable mindscrew it's infamous for.

* ''Anime/DennouCoil'' mostly concerns itself with the daily lives of the children using the titular virtual reality glasses with their various adventures, but the mystery of who 4423 is, why he continues to haunt Yasako's memories, the nature of the Illegals who wander old E-spaces, the legend of the girl Michiko who will appear to grant a wish, and the connection between the two Yukos ties everything together.

* AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho has its own Myth Arcs. For the Eighth Doctor there was anti-time and the Divergent Universe, which stretched from his first Big Finish appearance "Storm Warning" (January 2001) to "The Next Life" (December 2004), the four "seasons" where he was the current Doctor.
** Then for the later Eighth Doctor stories, from the finale of the New Eighth Doctor Adventures into Dark Eyes, they seem to be tying into the Time War, with events like the Daleks trying to destroy the Time Lords and the Master being resurrected.
** Before this was the "Dalek Empire" arc, showing the Daleks expanding their Empire and attacking Gallifrey. This leads into the "Dalek Empire" series, showing their attacks on the Milky Way in the 42nd and 67th centuries.
*** Unintentionally Part 2 of Dalek Empire "The Apocalypse Element" where the Daleks attack Gallifrey seems to be part of the Time War. In the Doctor Who 2006 annual RTD claims this may have begun the escalation of events.
* ''Podcast/KakosIndustries'' has the running plot threads concerning the future CEO of the company as Corin Deeth III does his best to keep his new position. Melantha's rival company's pety manipulations, Belladonica's various schemes to kill or seduce him with the aid of her time-displaced cult, Hailey's gradual increase in demonic power, and his grandfather Corin Deeth I's letters sent from the past. There's also the implied disappearance of Corin Deeth II, who has yet to be so much as mentioned despite being the protagonist's father.

* ''Series/{{Alias}}'' was a otherwise straightforward TuxedoAndMartini spy drama, but also had a show-spanning Myth Arc involving a LeonardoDaVinci knockoff Renaissance inventor named Milo Rambaldi.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': As the show gradually progressed from seemingly isolated MonsterOfTheWeek adventures towards a interconnected storyline, such an arc was revealed. After season one's MidSeasonFinale calls into question the Crystal Gems' motives, the series shifts from UrbanFantasy to ScienceFantasy as the presence of other Gems and their entire otherworldly nature can't be hidden from Steven any longer. Why are the Crystal Gems determined to isolate themselves from the Gem Homeworld? Who are these Gems returning to Earth and what is the nature of Homeworld society? What happened during the Gem War for our planet that led to these corrupted monsters? And most importantly for Steven himself, what kind of person was his mother, Rose Quartz? And how can he master her powers and live up to -- or surpass - her legacy?

*** The Infinity Stones Arc started in Phase 1's ''[[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger The First Avenger]]'' (although it retroactively tied into ''Film/IronMan1'') with the Tesseract/Cosmic Cube, eventually shown to be the Space Stone. Phase 2 brought 3 more stones into acknowledgement; confirming Loki's Scepter was one of them in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' with two others showing up in ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' and ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy''. This arc continues in Phase 3, ending with the Infinity War.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'': Halfway through season 1, [[GreaterScopeVillain Toffee]], is introduced, who ups the stakes, marking a more continuous storyline than previous episodes. Nearing the end of Season 1 and throughout most of season 2, the Mewman-Monster conflict is set up greatly, along with Ludo's journey in becoming a greater threat than ever before.
