Added DiffLines:

* ''FanFic/TheRWBYLoops'' has more then a million words. Its snip-based format makes it more digestible--each chapter is a collection of small scenes bound by an overarching plot--but it can still leave one wondering how it got that big.

* Another just slightly less daunting challenge is to marathon all of the original [[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts Disney theatrical cartoons]]. The original lineup combined amounts to 469 shorts total [[note]] This does not include shorts initially released as part of a bigger feature, such as the shorts in ''Disney/TheReluctantDragon'', ''Disney/SaludosAmigos'', ''Disney/TheThreeCaballeros'' and the '40s Disney package features that are part of the animated canon -- which would add about 30 more shorts[[/note]] and that number shoots up to 562 when you include all of the silent Disney films (the Newman Laugh-O-Grams, the AliceComedies and OswaldTheLuckyRabbit)[[note]] although only around 50 of the 93 silent Disney films survive, are available or are known to exist[[/note]]--to watch all of them in chronological order would take around 66 hours and 30 minutes, or two and 3/4 days without sleep. And that's not counting post-Golden Age shorts, tv shows and spinoffs, and feature animation appearances of the characters.

* After 100 episodes, the ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' {{machinima}} series [[ReTool started with a fresh scenario]] specifically to avert Archive Panic. This worked out well for new viewers, since only subscribers can even [[ArchiveBinge view all the old episodes at once]]... but now all the episodes have been uploaded to Youtube. Currently it's on its eleventh season, with each season consisting of around 20 episodes of anywhere from 3 to 15 minutes long. Each season's DVD has all of the episodes cut together into one "movie", lasting about an hour and a half to two hours, depending on the season.

** In 2016, FXX did a similar marathon starting at Thnanksgiving. This time, however, it left out the movie and only showed the first 600 episodes, which excludes "Trust But Clarify", "There Will Be Buds", "Havana Wild Weekend", "Dad Behavior", and "The Last Traction Hero". The first four aired before the marathon, while "The Last Traction Hero" aired on FOX during the marathon.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' (quoted at the top of the page) has approximately 7000 pages as of November 2014. Its wordcount alone bests some translations of ''WarAndPeace'' without taking into account the visuals and frequent several-minute cinematic flash animations (the more important of these have been as long as 15 minutes) or [[UnexpectedGameplayChange playable]] [[OutOfGenreExperience flash game]] [[SuddenVideogameMoment segments]] that can run anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours to completely explore. [[UpToEleven In addition,]] Hussie's sporadic but rampant update schedule and usual OneManArmy nature (since he does most of the work himself) means that by the time you catch up, he could have added any number of pages - he once claimed to be taking a break, and then updated eighty pages within the span of a week. It is worth noting that Homestuck actually has ''Save and Autosave buttons to return you to where you left off.'' It is also worth noting that, compared to nearly every other webcomic on this page, ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures'' is very new, only having started in 2007, yet has ranked up nearly 9,000 pages as of 2014. To make matters worse, ''Homestuck'' starts very casually, and picks up speed after the first two Acts, which are easy enough to blow through rapidly. Thus, it is extremely easy to start reading in the evening or at night under the mistaken impression that it is easy to stop reading, and then look out the window and notice that the sun is rising. Most of that bulk of writing doesn't kick in until Act 5, whereupon to have any idea what's going on, you'll need to read about two thousand pages of dense content and sudden twists. What's even worse is that the comic is rife with foreshadowing and explanations which can be easily missed, so skimming often leads to having no clue what happened in already-confusing plot twists. Overall, [[http://readmspa.org/stats/ this website]] provides an interesting analysis of MS Paint Adventure's total wordcount: the total number of words including transcribed flashes is 761,345, longer than the King James Bible, and when the images and flashes are converted into a wordcount (basically, the number of words it would take to communicate the same information in words) it reaches a whole ''1,159,315 words'', or 107% of the entire ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series.

* ''Franchise/JoJosBizarreAdventure''. The original manga ran weekly for nearly 15 years with one hiatus between Part 5 and Part 6. If you add up the number of chapters between all six parts of ''[=JoJo=]'' and the pseudo-sequels ''Steel Ball Run'' and "Jojolion," that adds up to 890 chapters and counting.
