* ''Literature/TheFamiliar'': This book series has nine [[ColorCodedCharacters color coded]] (and differently text-formatted - it's a Creator/MarkZDanielewski book, who's known for his UnconventionalFormatting) narrators, and each tells two to five chapters per book. Of the nine, only three know each other / share storylines (as they are a girl, her father and her mother) and in their cases sometimes one begins to tell of an event and another finishes it.

* ''Manga/AnoKoNiKissToShirayuriWo'' operates like this. While Ayaka and Yurine are the only pairing whose arc spreads over several volumes, the brief focuses on them come between longer arcs where they stay in the background. In volume 1, 3 and 5 they still have a fair amount of screentime, but in volume 2, 4 and 6 they barely appear. Each volume focuses on the couple featured on the cover, who might be new characters or already known but not yet developped ones. Another particularity is that the focus tends to "hop" from a group of character to another after they interact − for example, Ayaka being interviewed by Sawa and Itsuki in volume 5 or Izumi meeting Amane in volume 6. This allows for smooth transitions between the arcs despite the constant shifts.

* ''FanFic/ABrighterDark'': A dramatic retelling/AlternateUniverse of VideoGame/FireEmblemFates. The story covers the events of the war from the perspective of multiple characters on both sides, usually covering about three perspectives per chapter, with their name and location signaling the beginning of their section, adding depth to both sides of the conflict and making the fact that AnyoneCanDie all the more heartbreaking.

* ''Literature/{{Elantris}}'' by Creator/BrandonSanderson does this - each chapter is from the point of view of Raoden, Sarene, or Hrathen, rotating between them until the end, where the breakdown of this rotating scheme is one more clue that things are (as usual for a Sanderson novel) going totally haywire around 5 chapters before the end.

** ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'' has a number of protagonists, but each book puts one character's backstory center stage (The Way of Kings focused on [[BrokenAce Kaladin]], Words of Radiance on [[GuileHero Shallan]]).

* ''Manga/BokuNoHeroAcademia'': Played with. The main group often varies, but Midoriya and Bakugou are always in the spotlight, while Uraraka, Iida and Todoroki are prone to fall in and out of focus. Aside from that, the other members of class 1-A are prone to become said group. Kirishima often gets the spotlight due to being always following Bakugou, besides various characters such as Shouji, Tokoyami, Tsuyu, Mineta, Jirou, Yaoyorozu, Kaminari, Mei and various others also get attentions in some given arcs, even if they aren't on Midoriya's group.
