* Creator/GeoffJohns' entire run on ''ComicBook/GreenLantern'' is one long interconnected storyline spanning across 87 issues, which were connected so strongly that even the ContinuityReboot of the ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'' couldn't break their momentum. Together, they tell the story of the discovery of the Emotional Spectrum and all of the resultant fallout, including the foundation of eight new Lantern Corps aligned with different emotions (as well as with Death and Life itself), the "War of Light" between the Corps, the battle against the rogue Guardian "[[BiggerBad Krona]]" (the original custodian of the Emotional Entities), and [[DividedWeFall the fracturing of the Green Lantern Corps]]. All 67 issues of the comic's fourth volume (2005-2011) tell that story, which kept right on going for the first 20 issues of the fifth volume (2011-present) until Johns finally bowed out. Even before the fourth volume began, Johns' limited series ''Green Lantern: Rebirth'' laid some of the crucial foundations for the MythArc: it reintroduced the classic villains SelfDemonstrating/{{Sinestro}} and Black Hand, the eventual founders of the [[ComicBook/SinestroCorpsWar Sinestro Corps]] and the [[ComicBook/BlackestNight Black Lantern Corps]], and it finally explained that Parallax (the "yellow impurity") was actually the living [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Emotional Entity]] of Fear--who would eventually turn out to be one of seven such Entities. [[note]] As a final kicker: Johns even revamped Green Lantern's classic origin story to better tie it in with the Emotional Spectrum MythArc, revealing that Atrocitus (founder of the Red Lanterns) was the one who killed Abin Sur, that Parallax's influence led Abin Sur to lose faith in his ring and travel in a spaceship, and that the prophecy of the Blackest Night convinced Abin Sur to travel to Earth to find the future founder of the Black Lanterns.

* The relatively minor Morrigan/Flemeth plot in ''VIdeoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' and ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', especially after Flemeth's cryptic remarks in the second game and Morrigan's SequelHook at the end of Witch Hunt, suggest that the entire saga of seemingly unrelated tales is being set up as a massive GambitRoulette war between the two. * The ''MetroidPrime'' games follow a story arc centered around the mutagen known as [[ToxicPhlebotinum Phazon]]: The first game introduces Phazon in the dying world of Tallon IV and also showed the downfall of the Chozo civilization and the attempts of the SpacePirates to mine it; the second showed a planet locked in perpetual dimensional flux due to a Phazon meteor impact; the third had the SpacePirates launch an all-out war against TheFederation, an act which brought to light the source of all Phazon.

* 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.

* ''Webcomic/{{Fatebound}}'' claims in its description to have a single myth centering on the wager between Herot and Ngv. This was introduced in the first story arc, and both characters have been seen acting to influence characters in the current, second arc.

re-worded my addition for clarity
* ''WebVideo/BoardJames'' started out as a simple series of board game reviews, created by Creator/JamesRolfe as a counterpart for the ''Series/AngryVideoGameNerd'', but over time it has developed a shockingly rich mythology of its own, along with a series-spanning story arc. Basically, Board James is [[spoiler: a murderer who was executed before the first episode. Now he is an amnesiac wandering through an afterlife which he subconsciously shapes around him, incorporating board games he remembers from his past life and summoning "friends" to play with (Mike and Bootsy). As the series progresses, James's murderous nature resurfaces and he kills his "friends" over and over, sending them into deeper "levels" of the afterlife, until they eventually figure out what's happening and try to stop him.]]

** With the new series, the production teams of both Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat have taken to building up series-long Myth Arcs. This is done by adding subtle hints, clues, and foreshadowing throughout the episodes until the series finale, where the events are explained and the loose ends are tied up. *** The first four series of the "nuWho" revival eventually coalesce into a Myth Arc in The End of Time special, which draws elements from every preceding series as well as featuring every major recurring character up to that point. *** The fifth and sixth seem to be building a Myth Arc of their own, based around the relationship between The Doctor and River Song, The Silence, [[spoiler:and the reasoning behind the TARDIS exploding in the series 5 finale]]. *** And given that the event referenced as the central point of this arc is said to occur [[spoiler:"at the fall of the Eleventh"]], it's possible that this arc will cover [[TheNthDoctor Eleven]]'s entire tenure. *** Confirmed, as of [[Recap/DoctorWho2013CSTheTimeOfTheDoctor The Time of the Doctor]] - and for bonus points, it links back to the Time War arc, directly resulting from it and therefore arguably linking together all seven series up to that point.

* RobinHobb's ''Literature/RealmOfTheElderlings'' 'verse is split into, at present, four different series which in many ways are self-contained. Together, however, they make up one big Myth Arc about the return of the dragons and the White Prophet's quest.
