* ''Anime/{{Kuromukuro}}'' has over 30 characters. Not bad for a series that only lasts 26 episodes.

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' like many school based anime has a ''starting'' cast of 20 students, two teachers and a few side characters like Mt. Lady and Deku's mom. Bad enough on its own but each arc tends to introduce many other characters, including a whole other class and two other hero schools, not to mention all the villains. The author himeself has often lamented in side stories and volume extra's that he has yet to fully flesh out many of even the earliest characters.

** If it wasn't taken UpToEleven already, the Dressrosa arc features a [[TournamentArc tournament]], in which nearly all of the competitors are new characters. Need I say more?

* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' has rather a bad case of this, the sides are generally sorted into sets of seven and each arc adds at least another seven. I would say the latest arc added upwards of 20. Checking it's character page on Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} suggests there are upwards of 50 characters and it doesn't list all of them.

* What happens when you introduce about 20 characters per arc over an ongoing series that already has 350 chapters? You get about 200 named characters, most of whom still have some relation to the plot. Welcome to ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple''.

** And the count continues with the eighth ''All Stars'' movie, pushing the number of magical girls up to '''44''', spanning eleven continuities (twelve if you count Cure Echo, who is [[OriginalGeneration All-Stars exclusive]]). And that doesn't count the mascot characters, which are almost as numerous.

* ''Manga/BungouStrayDogs'' has the Armed Detective Agency (11 named members), the Port Mafia (12 named & recurring characters), the Guild (10 named characters), and a host of characters associated with other groups or unaffiliated, some more relevant than others. And that's just counting the main manga; the casts of the light novels overlap somewhat but also feature their own characters, and there's also Gaiden, which has characters not part of the main series as its stars.
