Christopher Booker's ''TheSevenBasicPlots'' separates ''The Quest'' from ''Overcoming the Monster''. While both involve a journey, the ''Overcoming the Monster'' plot is far more focused on heading straight for the [[BigBad Monster]] (with perhaps a side quest for [[AppliedPhlebotinum magic weapons]]), while ''The Quest'' concentrates on a variety of obstacles including Monsters, Temptations, [[ScyllaAndCharybdis Deadly Opposites]], and a Journey to TheUnderworld. (This probably indicates that if the heroes don't realize there's a BigBad to fight until after the halfway point, it's following ''The Quest'' plot.) Also, ''The Quest'' is the plot most likely to include companions (a small group, or just one companion - or, as with ''Literature/TheOdyssey'', a RedShirtArmy).

** Most of Stargate revolves around this. SG-1 are almost always on a quest to find something - the Asgard, the Ancients, various lost or hidden superweapons, Atlantis, Daniel's wife, etc.. While episodes tend to follow the MonsterOfTheWeek format as obstacles in a longer quest, they often also take the former of smaller quests of their own, with the quest being established in the opening scenes before the title credits.

* In the ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' books, the occasional quest is standard for the demigods being trained at Camp Half-Blood. The books themselves follow the various quests of [[TheHero Percy Jackson]], with the quests heavily influenced by ones undertaken in ClassicalMythology.
