** In Season 2 all the storylines converged on Theo Galavan, who also brought back several villains from Season 1. The second half of Season 2 finished up the Arkham Asylum plot points, and helped finish up the StartOfDarkness for Riddler and Penguin.

Added DiffLines:

* When ''Series/{{Gotham}}'' started, Gordon's storyline nominally had a driving arc (solving/dealing with the fallout of the Wayne murders, with a side order of upcoming MobWar), but for the most part episodes were fairly self-contained. This changed about half way through Season 1. Then Season 2 started following up on Season 1's dangling plot points while holding its own arc; from that point on, every Season has been divided into two main arcs.
** In Season 2 all the storylines converged on Theo Galavan, who also brought back several villains from Season 1. The second half of Season 2 finished up the Arkham Asylum plot points, and helped finish up the StartOfDarkness for Riddler and Penguin.
** Season 3 is about rounding up the escaped Arkham patients, Mad Hatter debuting, Penguin running for mayor, and Jerome's [[spoiler: resurrection]]; the second half of the Season cuts to [[spoiler: the Court of Owls]].
** Season 4 so far has been about all the classic Bat villains finally stepping into their familiar roles while Bruce takes his first steps into vigilantism.

** "The Bitter End" (Episode 20-24, 25-26/''End of Evangelion''). Even more MindScrew with a side order of NightmareFuel. Most of the cast's backstories are revealed in all [[DarkAndTroubledPast their dark and troubled glory]], and everyone of them are pretty much completely worn down, both physically and mentally, and the MonsterOfTheWeek episodes tends result in at least one character getting pushed completely over the edge whenever they appear. Also TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt occurs at the end. The part that made the franchise famous.

* Though his [[ExecutiveMeddling higher-ups]] demanded a strictly MerchandiseDriven series, story editor John Semper managed to "sneak in" overarching storylines and development into ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries''. Naming each season and referring to episodes as "chapters" probably didn't hurt. By the time they realized what he had done, and despite limited animation and extremely restrictive censorship, the show had become the number 1 cartoon in America. Nonetheless, they still didn't let him join in on the ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManUnlimited'' spinoff, which was primarily stand-alone format and petered out after barely reaching 13 episodes.

** Action Arc, starting with Asuka's introduction and ending with Iruel. Focus is on humor and action, and all episodes are MonsterOfTheWeek episodes; this part is just like any other mecha series (Episode 8-13).

** Action Arc, starting with Asuka's introduction and ending with Iruel. Focus Though there are some melancholic and introspective moments, the main focus is firmly on humor and action, and all episodes are MonsterOfTheWeek episodes; this part is in many ways just like any other mecha series (Episode 8-13).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/HalloweenUnspectacular'' is an anthology series, but each one has a longer story told in multiple parts, which come together to form larger {{Myth Arc}}s. There's usually another unconnected multipart story in each one.
** In the first one, there's a three-chapter arc about [[AuthorAvatar E350]] and his friends trying to defeat a witch version of [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Ember McLain]], and an arc concerning the creation and rampage of a creature only known as [=ReGenesis=].
** In the second one, there's a three-parter about [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Spongebob's]] attempts to stop the Underworld King, and a larger story arc in which a RagtagBunchOfMisfits try to keep the [[RealityWarper Fiddley Thing]] away from a German scientist working for [[spoiler: Dan Phantom.]]
** In the third one, E350 retells the story of the ship ''Batavia'' with fictional characters. The first MythArc also officially begins with this collection, as the heroes face off with an AncientConspiracy of anti-magic fanatics and encounter the forces of Avalon for the first time.
** In the fourth one, there's an arc centered on a colonial-era prison only referred to as "the Gaol" (an alternate spelling for jail), and another involving several villains coming together to destroy the heroes. [[spoiler: It turns out both are connected to the MythArc, as the Gaol's Governor is the lead villain, and his search for El Dorado leads into the next story.]]
** The fifth one has a three-part FreakyFridayFlip story. And the MythArc comes to a conclusion as [[spoiler: the previous {{Big Bad}}s ally under Galahad's banner to collapse TheMultiverse.]]
** The sixth one had a two-part story about [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Ford]] and [[WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall Wirt]] getting trapped in a strange land. The new MythArc begins, as [[ThoseWackyNazis PURITY]] prepares to make its move.
** The seventh one has PURITY preparing a new plan, which goes into motion at the climax.

* In ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'', each girls' route (except Kurugaya's, as that one heavily revolved around her going out with Riki and so was [[CuttingOffTheBranches incompatible with Rin's route, the 'main' one]]) was adapted into a separate story arc of 4 or 5 episodes in a row. (Kud's arc is a minor exception, as it had a Rin episode in between the first and second episodes).
