* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' often premieres new episodes in week-long events called "Steven Bombs" that form mini-arcs that either concern the overarching MythArc or character relationships, such as the first one dealing with the oncoming approach of [[PlanetLooters Homeworld Gems]] or the third one dealing with a loss of trust within the team after it's discovered that Pearl has been manipulating Garnet. In turn, the episodes are divided into "shapes". With each shape having a different arc, as confirmed by one of the writers [[http://ben-levin.tumblr.com/post/115369126820/would-it-be-reasonable-to-assume-that-season-2-is here.]]

** Season 12 has a loose arc where all of the adventures take place in the same area of space but at different times, with the exception of Pertwee-era hangover "Robot" and the WhamEpisode "Genesis of the Daleks".

** Season 12 has a loose arc where all was an experiment at more arc-based plotting, as an attempt at RevisitingTheRoots. This was done by having the Doctor lose access to his TARDIS for much of the adventures take place season, instead relying on various teleporters or personal time travel devices to move him about, which gives a stronger continuity between stories. On top of that, every story in the same area of space but at different times, season takes place either on Earth or the Nerva Beacon orbiting Earth, with the exception of Pertwee-era hangover "Robot" and the WhamEpisode "Genesis of the Daleks".

* The Film/JamesBond series does this twice. The first arc is the SPECTRE Arc, which lasted from the first movie, ''Film/DrNo'' (1962), until the seventh, ''Film/DiamondsAreForever'' (1971). The second encompasses DanielCraig's run as Bond, with ''{{Film/Spectre}}'' continuing the [[AbortedArc arc left hanging]] by ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'' and ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'', while also following the events of ''{{Film/Skyfall}}''.
** A miniature arc mostly within the first SPECTRE arc involves the [[TearJerker death of Tracy Bond]] and Bond's RoaringRampageOfRevenge after it: ''Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService'', ''Film/DiamondsAreForever'', and ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly''.

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has overarching arcs that have not concluded after 14 years (finding out what happened to the Other and defeating her), arcs that have only just started to wrap up but have left more questions (the apparition in the first few pages) and arcs that seem like they're going to take a while to wrap up but have only just begun (the timestop), location-based arcs that generally take a year to three (Beetleburg, Castle Wulfenbach, the circus, Sturmhalten, Mechanicsburg pre-Castle, Castle Heterodyne, Mechanicsburg post-Castle, the train, Paris, and underground in Paris), and smaller arcs within each of those that focus on solving a particular problem (the Si Vales Valeo arc, fighting the wasps). Then there's the radio theater breaks and the short stories.
** The first page of ''Girl Genius'' was posted in 2002, and it has updated three times per week ever since. The fourteenth volume began in 2014 and is entitled '''Act Two: Book One'''. It's going to go on for a while.

* In ''VideoGame/MegadimensionNeptunia'', the game is split into three parts that are all connected together. It starts out with the Zero Dimension arc which deals with the new Zero dimension, and then that gets solved and goes to the second arc, the Golden Third arc, where each CPU becomes a protagonist of their own and tries to figure out what has been happening to their own nations and who is behind all of the mess. Finally, the third arc, the Heart Dimension arc, focuses on [[spoiler: the character who was from the first arc figuring out who she is and the main villain is introduced in the story.]]
