[[AC: Canadian Animation]]
* The animated films of Creator/NormanMcLaren. Most of his films, such as "Le Merle", "Synchrony", and "Boogie Doodle" have absolutely no story, narrative or characters at all. They used minimalistic animation that aimed for abstract, emotional experiences.

* ''WesternAnimation/SoupeOpera''. Fruit and vegetables, in a dark room, cut themselves up to form animals. While listening to creepy music.

to:

* While most segments of ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'' have a bit of an ExcusePlot to show animals / dinosaurs / mythological beings frolic around to classical music, ''Music/ToccataAndFugueInDMinor'', is just abstract figures and colors appearing to the tune of the music with absolutely no coherent plot. The only segment with a solid story is ''The Sorcerer's Apprentice'', though (which is the most well-known segment of the film, probably for this reason).

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TwoThousandAndFortyEight'': You have a 4x4 panel board. You have to slide blocks with numbers on them to combine them into blocks with larger numbers. That's pretty much it.

[[AC:Theme Parks]]
* The vast majority of theme park rides not made by [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disney]] or Ride/UniversalStudios fall under this; having no story whatsoever and just being there for the sake of a fun experience.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'':
** This franchise's multiplayer maps avert this. They are {{canon}}.
** ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'''s multiplayer averts it further: it's justified as combat exercises carried out in the advanced starship ''Infinity''. The maps are even used in the story-oriented "Spartan Ops"; some maps made specifically for Forge are even said to be real locations picked for the potential ''Infinity's'' mapmakers could use in them.

Added DiffLines:

* None of the ''VideoGame/NeedForSpeed'' games before ''[[VideoGame/NeedForSpeedUnderground Underground]]'' had any semblance of plot; you simply drive high-price exotic cars in scenic locations, sometimes while running from cops.

* Aside from the fencers of ''VideoGame/{{Nidhogg}}'' fighting one another to be a sacrifice to the titular Nidhogg, there is no plot to speak of. Even the exact reasoning behind being a sacrifice is never elaborated on.

* ''Film/TheHollywoodRevueOf1929'' is a feature-length VarietyShow in which almost every star signed to MGM at that time appears in a sketch. There is no attempt at a plot, merely a series of sketches and songs until the movie ends.

* PuzzleGame: ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Bejeweled}}'' - at least, the first game. The later games revolved a CaptainErsatz of IndianaJones solving puzzles to win back his girlfriend, uncover treasures, and defeat villains.
