* [[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.

''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.

** Same for the HardyBoys.


Added DiffLines:

* Creator/AgathaChristie's ''Literature/TheClocks'' features two concurrent plot threads: one involving the murder of an unknown man, and one about espionage. However, the two cases barely have any connection to each other, aside from the fact that they take place in the same location.

* ''Anime/{{Digimon|Adventure}} the Movie''. In Japan, it was two short OVAs about the original cast and one longer movie about the season two newcomers. To make it a theatrical feature after the first season and an introduction to said newcomers, a bit of narration was used for ArcWelding, and Diaboromon and Kokomon were said to be affected by the same virus, and given the same voice actor and a couple catchphrases in common. ("Don't interfere!" "[[ArcWords Go back to the beginning.]].") Connecting Diaboromon to the Willis thing actually made Diaboromon a much more sympathetic character than the original GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere, but the longer ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' really [[CompressedAdaptation loses a great deal of plot]].

* 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.
