* RainbowDoubleDash describes his work ''[[FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse Magic Tutor]]'' as having an "A" plot (Trixie's attempts to teach the foals of Ponyville magic) and an "E" plot (Twilight beginning her community service), which partway through merge into an AE plot (Twilight helps Trixie with the magic tutoring).

* Peter F. Hamilton does this quite a bit. His ''Literature/CommonwealthSaga'' follows something like seven plots all at once, and they'd each be enough for a book of their own. ''TheNightsDawnTrilogy'' has three major plots going at once. There's a ''reason'' his books are so thick.

* It is only near the end of ''Webcomic/The10Doctors'' when all the plot threads come together. At one point, the story manages to pull off a magnificent ''Twelve'' Lines, No Waiting: one for each Doctor, and one for each group of Companions.

* One particularly memorable ''Series/LawAndOrder'' episode actually screwed with the long established premise of one case, one episode, by showing a day in the life of the police officers and their relations with the DAs. Rather than the one case followed from crime to verdict, one principal case is brought up, and several other minor cases crop up to plague the detective's concentration. Like all episodes, however, the detectives are able to solve all the cases by the end of the day.

* The first half of ''TransformersCybertron'' deftly juggled three plot threads at once, varying the focus each one received. The first introduced was the search for the Omega Lock on Earth. After a few episodes, they discovered the location of the first [[PlotCoupon Cyber Planet Key]] on Velocitron, which led to a secondary thread about Hot Shot and Red Alert competing in a series of races to try and win it. Some time later, a third thread was introduced when the second Key was traced to Jungle Planet, and Overhaul was sent to retrieve it from Scourge. Meanwhile, the Omega Lock was found, the race was won, and finally Scourge defeated, leading up to the more linear but still exciting second half of the series.
