* Adam Elliot's films trilogy of short films (''Uncle'', ''Cousin'', and ''Brother'') that he made before ''WesternAnimation/HarvieKrumpet'' and ''WesternAnimation/MaryAndMax'' were this, although for a good reason -- they're supposed to emulate the feeling you're looking through a photo album.

* ''Film/NapoleonDynamite''. Even the supposedly main story about Pedro running for Class President is shuffled all over the place.

to:

* ''Film/NapoleonDynamite''. Even the supposedly main story about Pedro running for Class President is shuffled all over the place. Practically lampshaded in the first two lines:
-->'''Kid on bus:''' What are you going to do today, Napoleon?\\
'''Napoleon:''' Whatever I feel like I'm gonna do. Gosh!

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/CryWilderness'' has many plot points that are poorly connected and are often unceremoniously dropped into the viewers' laps with no foreshadowing. We don't even find out that the animal Paul's dad and the others are looking for is a tiger escaped from the circus until the tiger actually shows up. And Red Hawk? Comes right the flip outta nowhere.

* ''Film/MazeRunnerTheScorchTrials'' has been accused of having one due to its lack of CharacterDevelopment and overemphasis on action scenes barely connected by a threadbare narrative. It's the main reason why the movie was considered such a major step down in terms of quality when compared to its well-received [[Film/TheMazeRunner2014 predecessor]].

* Early ''Franchise/{{Tintin}}'' books are this. Hergé tossed his protagonist from one solved situation into the next unsolved one or rather tossed situations at him. Only the location remained constant. It goes to show that Hergé had no experience in writing comics at all when he started at the age of 19. This wasn't received poorly, though; ''Tintin'' was originally released in a weekly kids' magazine page by page instead of in books all at once, and the Belgians in the late 1920s didn't have that many comics to compare ''Tintin'' with anyway.

The third story in the series, ''[[Recap/TintinTintinInAmerica Tintin in America]]'' started moving away from this formula, adopting a more focused theme of Tintin taking on gangsters, and then the fourth story, ''[[Recap/TintinCigarsOfThePharaoh Cigars of the Pharaoh]]'' moved to having a fully coherent storyline.

* The music ''Music/UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny'' by LemonDemon. First, we have Godzilla in Tokyo, suddenly Batman threw a grenade at him. Then Shaquille O'Neal intervened in the fight. Then Aaron Carter "[[LampshadeHanging came out of the blue]]" before started beating up Shaq. Then Abraham Lincoln popped out of his grave and took an AK-47 from [[MagicHat his hat]]. And that's just the first one-third of the song.

* Excalibur in ''Manga/SoulEater'''s anime spends an episode telling tales about himself to a bewildered student who has hunted him down. Several of stories are contradictory and make absolutely no sense.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', ''Escape to the House of the Mummies, Part II'' (there is no part I, and a part III that is implied never comes, so it isn't even resolved) which includes such disparate elements as mummies (duh), time travel, and Edgar Allen Poe in a headlock. The plot involving the boys and Brock is an interconnected set of {{Noodle Incident}}s, with the main plot of the episode being a fairly cohesive and self-contained one focusing on Dr. Venture and Dr. Orpheus's competition.
