* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'':
** Every season has one episode (episode 14 or 15) which inverts the show's usual narrative strategy by focusing heavily on the flashback narrative of Oliver's five years away from home, and only briefly touching upon the present-day narrative. These episodes have a similar naming structure (starting with ''The'' followed by one word). Also, all these episodes too date have featured the character of Slade Wilson, either in the past or the present-day. Season 4 was the first season to break with this pattern...it remains to be seen if Season 5 (the last season to follow the flashback narrative) will reinstate it.
** Every season has one episode which begins with Oliver's POV of running through wilderness. For the first four seasons, it was the pilot/season premiere, while in the fifth season, it was the series' 100th episode, part of a four-series crossover event.
** Every season thus far has seen [[spoiler: the death of a major character - Tommy Merlyn in Season 1, Moira Queen in Season 2, Laurel Lance in Season 4]]. Season 3 is somewhat of an anomaly in this regard - [[spoiler: It begins with the death of Sara Lance, an important recurring character from the previous season but not a series regular - moreover, Sara's death was eventually reversed, unlike the others, though admittedly only because she was to star in a new spin-off series]].
** Also, every season ends with [[spoiler: Oliver killing the BigBad by impaling him, either with an arrow or sword]]. Season 2 plays with this - [[spoiler: Oliver spares the life of BigBad Slade Wilson in the present-day, but in the flashback narrative, he does stab Slade with an arrow, with the intent of killing him]].

* Almost every major arc of ''Manga/OnePiece'' will end with the main protagonists and their allies from said arc throwing a huge party, to celebrate their victory over the ArcVillain. Hell, the Skypiea arc even had [[UpToEleven two]] of those, one of which was at the halfway point of the arc.

Hell, the Skypiea arc even had [[UpToEleven two]] of those, one of which was at the halfway point of the arc. Pretty often, this was then followed by the Straw Hats having to ''leave'' in a hurry for one reason or another (the residents chase them out, the Marines are coming, etc.).

* ''Series/FullerHouse'': While there are only two seasons of the show so far, each one has featured one fourth wall-breaking reference to [[Creator/MaryKateAndAshleyOlsen Michelle's]] absence:
** Season 1, Episode 1 ("Our Very First Show, Again"): Stephanie asks where her sister is. Danny says that she's "busy in New York, running her fashion empire." This is followed by the whole cast turning to the camera for several seconds, to uproarious laughter and cheering.
** Season 2, Episode 6 ("Fuller Thanksgiving"): D.J. says grace before the family eats dinner, saying that they miss Michelle and hope she'll be with them next year, followed by Jesse peaking out from the group and saying to the camera, "come, it'll be fun," to more cheers and laughter.

** Creator/GregRucka played with this idea using Mister Mxyzptlk, who can only travel to Earth every 90 days, by having the character show up regularly [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall at regular, three-issue intervals.]]

* In Comicbook/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks, the Comicbook/DCUniverse did this regularly in several of its titles: Comicbook/GreenLantern and Comicbook/TheFlash teamed up once a year, alternating which character's comic would feature the story, and the Golden Age and Silver Age Flashes had a similarly regularly scheduled team-up story for a while, having a team-up story roughly every six to eight months.
