* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'', much like ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', has three episodes that focus on everyone else that isn't the main or supporting cast: "The World" (which focuses on the sentient objects in Elmore), "The Extras" (which focuses on the background and one-shot characters that have appeared in minor roles in past episodes) and "The Love" (which focuses on the theme of love). Other episodes like "The Tape", "The Procrastinators", "The Butterfly" and "The Uploads" are also comprised of a number of skits but they still all form part of a single narrative.

As for video games, this happens when a game has multiple modes with each individual mode having its own story. While they tend be connected in the grand scheme of things, the player will often have freedom in choosing how they tackle all the modes.

While they tend be connected in the grand scheme of things, the player will often have freedom in choosing how they tackle all the modes. Alternatively, the game could play just like a TV episode where the storyline is composed of multiple, individual storyline that the player will be transferred between as they progress through the game.
