** Season Eleven is built entirely around the conflict with [[TheAntiGod the Darkness]].


Added DiffLines:

** Season 3 is entirely about SHIELD dealing with the global outbreak of Inhumans gaining powers. In the first half, this means facing off with HYDRA and new rival agency the ATCU. This results in the arrival on Earth of the season's true BigBad, Hive, who seeks to turn all humans into Inhumans that he can control.


Added DiffLines:

** Season 4: The flashbacks see Oliver returned to the island by ARGUS in order to deal with [[EvilSorcerer Baron Reiter's]] operation there; the present has Oliver remaking himself as the Green Arrow, and trying to protect Star City from [[DarkMessiah Damien Darhk]] and his plans.

* 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.]]

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', true to its original source, sorts the story arcs by league and generation, and some of them are long enough to span more than one season. Indigo (Generation I), Orange Islands (FillerArc), Johto (Generation II), Hoenn, Battle Frontier (both Generation III), Sinnoh (Generation IV), Unova (Generation V), Kalos (Generation VI). In the case of the Johto saga, there are several sub-arcs in which the main characters are looking for (or even helping) a Legendary Pokémon.

* In various {{Shojo}} series, since they tend to follow the MonsterOfTheWeek format, the arc sorting is based on which BigBad becomes the ultimate source of all the weekly monsters; so when that Big Bad is defeated, then the arc ends and another starts with another villain releasing their own weekly monsters. Examples of series following this style include:
