* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' is constantly using this usually by introducing a side plot loosely connected to the main plot at the beginning but letting it go it's own way instantly. Sometimes they intersect again at the end but not always. Klaus {{lampshade|Hanging}}d it when he was TheNarrator for his grandson and introduced the Steve subplot while the focus was on Stan and Francine ice skating.

* The book ''[[Literature/DirkPittAdventures Sahara]]'' by Clive Cussler (and its movie adaption that he has disowned) has two plots running side by side, interlinking with each other. It eventually then focuses exclusively on one, with the other only coming back just when the audience has forgotten about it.

* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' works this trope similarly to ''{{Friends}}''. The A Story usually runs through Ted, while the B Story tends to involve the stable couple of Marshall and Lily. Barney and Robin sometimes end up in their own plotlines, but are more often part of the A Story or B Story.

Added DiffLines:

* [[FanFic/DeathBecomesYou Zootopia: Death Becomes You]]: The story uses this device as its sole plot mechanic to flash back and forth between past and present timelines while throwing in a healthy dose of random timeline events to shake things up. This helps keep some light-heartedness intact within the story while still building the tension and suspense that leads up to the grim circumstances we find Disney/{{Zootopia}} at the end of chapter 1. It utilizes this style well to hold back on important plot twists and reveals until just the right moment in the story where it makes the most impact on both timelines.

** ''Series/ZekeAndLuther'': The title characters plus Kojo and Ozzie in the A-plot, Ginger in the B-plot (before she left the show), when she's not the antagonist in the A-plot.
** ''Series/ImInTheBand'': The only consistent was that Tripp is in the A-plot.



** ''Series/KickinIt'': Jack and Kim are the A-plot; Jerry, Eddie, and Milton are the B-plot, and Rudy the C-plot.

** ''Series/KickinIt'': Jack and Kim are the A-plot; Jerry, Eddie, and Milton are the B-plot, and Rudy the C-plot. After Eddie left, the standard formula was Jack/Jerry/Kim and Milton/Rudy.



** ''Series/MightyMed'': For season 1, the plots were mostly Kaz/Oliver A-plots and Skylar/Alan/Horace B-plots. Gus tended to be either one or the other. Season 2 had Kaz and Oliver occasionally separating and having separate plots.



** ''Series/GamersGuideToPrettyMuchEveryting'': Conor is in the A-plot. The other three kids bounce back and forth between the two plots.

''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' did this with the Master Chief and the Arbiter. [[BrokenBase Opinions varied]] on whether it was a good idea or not, though it seems to have been VindicatedByHistory, if the Arbiter's later popularity is any indication.
** ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'' did this with Master Chief's Blue Team and Jameson Locke's Fireteam Osiris. Opinions also varied on whether it was a good idea or
not.
