* As mentioned above, ''Series/SupermarketSweep'' had the Round Robin game, where each member of a team (three pairs of two) would alternate solving product name anagrams, getting more sweep time- and right after that came the Big Sweep, so it could be important in how much time a team got for that.
* And its' sparring partner on Lifetime and Pax, ''Series/ShopTilYouDrop'', had a similar round called the "Shopper's Challenge", where the two teams would swap positions and answer rapid-fire questions- whichever team got the most points by the end of the round would move on to the [[BonusRound Shop Til They Drop]] round. Notably, this was one of the few elements kept intact when the show was heavily revamped in 2003 (and not for the better).

* The properly named ''Round Robin Parody'' is basically a CrossOver comical fanfic featuring ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', and oddly enough, ''ComicBook/AlbedoErmaFelnaEDF'', a ''furry'' comic. It was written in a Star Trek group in Usenet before the World Wide Web era at the beginning of the 90s, and very few copies of that fic exist in the net, mostly the final episode. Basically, the whole story is about the crew of the both generations trying to kill each other, while the cast of ''Albedo'' joins the fray, ending with the ILR (the common enemy force from ''Albedo'') invading ''Atlantic City'' with the help of Picard.

* ''The39Clues'' was written by a different author each book, beginning with Creator/RickRiordan and ending with Margaret Peterson Haddix. The sequel series continued the trend.

* [[http://www.snopes.com/college/homework/writing.asp A piece of occasionally-resurfacing Internet lore]] concerns an English teacher who paired her students and told them to write a story in this format. Unfortunately, one such pair turned out to consist of a borderline GranolaGirl alongside an insecure ManChild. The story alternates between a MarySue ({{Wangsty}} PurpleProse about relationships) and a MartyStu (adolescent SpaceMarine power fantasy).

* The DoctorWho fanfic community has had a number of Round Robins spawned from the ''ThisTimeRound'' MetaFic setting, including several Pro-Fun Hoedowns (in which {{Author Avatar}}s and DW characters get together for a party, only for Complications To Occur) and ''Dark Carnival'' (in which a CircusOfFear arrives in Nameless). Sadly, both ''Dark Carnival'' and the most recent Hoedown are currently {{Dead Fic}}s.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Fiasco}}'' has a similar principle: each player gets four turns, on which they can either set up or resolve a scene with their own character in the spotlight. If they set up their scene, other players vote on whether it ends well for their character or not, and they must incorporate it into the story; if the player resolves the scene, they get to choose the outcome, but other players set it up for them.
