* ''Anime/{{Natsume Yuujinchou}}'' episodes usually follow this pattern: An ayakashi is trying to kill/possess/drain life force from the main character. Natsume manages to survive, but doesn't kill the creature nor lets Nyanko-sensei finish it off, only takes pity on it instead, upon learning the reason the creature had, which is always some serious problem. Natsume then proceeds to help said ayakashi, often getting exhausted and fainting in the process. When he regains consciousness, the problem is either already solved, or it will be in the next few minutes.

* ''Believe It!'', Richard Wilson's "radiography" on [[Creator/TheBBC BBC Radio 4]]. Every episode of the first season opens with Richard describing a scene from his childhood. This is then enacted with Young Richard played by Creator/DavidTennant, and leads to someone's death. This death haunts Richard, leading to an event in his adulthood (playing himself) involving someone famous, which almost certainly didn't happen. The second season shakes it up a bit.

** Most {{KidCom}}s follow a pretty strict, formulaic template which can sometimes conflict with a show's premise; for instance, the adult with the most screen time is generally meant to be a buffoonish AdultChild, which works when they're a [[Series/ICarly sculptor]] or work at a BurgerFool, but causes [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief believability issues]] if they're a [[KickinIt karate sensei]].

** The endgame for the Pokemon arcs. After Ash gets the final badge, two things happen. One, the villains of the region get [[CosmicDeadline a rushed closure]] with their downfall being closely related to a Legendary Pokemon who is the NonProtagonistResolver. And then Ash enters the league where he'll ''always'' lose to [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter a guy with stronger Pokemon]] bordering on DiabolusExMachina (and will almost always be a man), and then he'll ditch his friends and Pokemon and journey to the next region, hitting a giant ResetButton on the way out. ''X and Y'' somewhataverted this by first handling the league arc, ''then'' making the Villainous Team arc the true finale of the season. And while Zygarde played a major role in stopping Team Flare, Ash and the entire supporting cast (including the Gym Leaders, HeroOfAnotherStory, and Champions) got to play a majorly important role as well.

Added DiffLines:

* When you buy a Music/CannibalCorpse album, you know what you're getting: a bunch of fast, thrashy death metal songs plus a few slower, more groovy or atmospheric tracks, and (depending on what Pat O'Brien was feeling during the writing process) maybe a TechnicalDeathMetal song or two. While they have been accused of being formulaic, the typical fan response is that while they may be predictable, they're so good at what they do and have such strong chemistry as writers that it doesn't matter.

** In-universe, the Mr. Coolskin comic books which Stumpy reads. While the audience doesn't get to see the story, the show's characters point out that all the books have almost identical plotlines.
