* Yuri(o) Plisetsky's story arc in ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' is often criticized as underwritten due to basically being this; it was obviously tertiary to the A and B plots of "Yuri Katsuki's skating career/comeback" and "[[spoiler: Victor and Yuri]]'s romance." The show didn't even feature Yurio's first Grand Prix event, while it followed all of Yuri's. In-between the "Hot Springs on Ice" showdown and the Rostelecom Cup (where both Yuris competed), Yurio was both geographically-removed and OutOfFocus, only getting brief scenes to remind us he was still training or show his commentary on Yuri's performances.

* The bulk of Season 3 of ''Series/{{Bosch}}'' is a TwoLinesNoWaiting plot with plot 1 being an attempt to frame Harry Bosch for the murder of one of his suspects, and plot 2 being some murderous Army Special Forces goons smuggling money home from Afghanistan. But there's also a plot 3, about a SerialKiller called the "Koreatown Killer" because he's stalking the Koreatown neighborhood of Los Angeles. This plot gets less screen time than the other two, and it functions as a SequelHook because the KTK isn't caught. The end of the season shows the KTK casually pedaling past an unawares Bosch, on his bicycle.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': From the very beginning, Daenerys has been on a separate continent from the rest of the story, with only Barristan Selmy, and later on Tyrion Lannister, directly involved in both arcs.

** The flash-sideways. You have to wait until the sixth season's eleventh episode for them to have any impact on the main plot, and the central revelation of the episode ([[spoiler:that they're remembering love]]) has little to do with the earlier flash-sideways. You could skip them all until "Happily Ever After" and miss nothing... until the SeriesFinale reveals the true, massively important nature of the flash-sideways: [[spoiler:it's the afterlife]].

Even then, it's technically [[spoiler:a very DistantFinale that, due to that time gap, is still mostly irrelevant to the rest of the series]].

* ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'' mostly jumps between Rob and Melodía's plotlines, with rare visits to either Jaume's, Falk's or Shiraa's heads and their problems.

* Season 1 of ''Series/TheExpanse'' works like this, with Holden and Miller's storylines more or less splitting amounts of screen time, while Avasarala's is mostly just her reacting to the political fallout of everything that's going on. [[spoiler: By the end of the season, Holden and Miller have become intertwined, so it looks like this will be averted in the future.]]

* Many episodes of ''Series/{{Community}}'' work like this. One episode had Jeff befriending Chang so he'd loosen up on the class, only to end up entangled in his love life; Pierce trying to assist Shirley in her business pitch; and Troy having to conquer his fear of rats so he could help Abed find their biology class rat, [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome all culminating in once musical number finale.]]

* ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'' splits the [[Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses main characters]] into two groups at the end of the first episode, and they only reunite in the penultimate one. A third plot follows the villain, which at time meets one of the groups.
