Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' has a diverse cast of humans, elves, and various fantasy races that all look very unique, with no reused character designs except for the sparse number of recurring characters, which is all the more impressive given that it's a gag-a-week comic with an entirely new group of characters every Sunday.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' do a good job at this. Marinette's classmate have varied faces, body types and style. And this applies to the rest of the suporting-cast as well.

Please note that almost all the facial features of the characters are different. Slight changes in hairstyle, hair colour, eye shape or eye colour do not count. The opposite of this trope is OnlySixFaces, where even the main characters tend to look alike. In video games, there are usually only six background characters (YouALLLookFamiliar). Tends to go [[SisterTrope hand in hand]] with LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters. Sort of related to TasteTheRainbow, where a cast of characters may come in a huge number of permutations. Unrelated to SpecialSnowflakeSyndrome.

* Despite of the utter lack of any [[NegativeContinuity coherent continuity]] (most of the time), ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' actually boast a very diversely designed cast of characters (as evident in [[http://spongebob.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_characters/Main this]] wiki page). In the main lineup, we have a sponge, a star, a squid, a crab, a [[SerialEscalation plankton]], and a [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers squirrel]]. And while the recurring characters generally are fish, each of them have distinctive design that are easily recognisable. Also almost all of them are *named*. The brown fish that yells my leg? Fred. The blue fish that says "[[MemeticMutation Big meaty claws]]"? Harold. Stocky brown fish wearing a shirt that yells chocolate? Tom. And let's not get started will all the one-shot and guess characters.

* ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption'' gives every NPC a unique appearance, populating entire villages with them.
** There's still the occasional bug that spawns more than one of the same character in one town.

them. There's still the occasional bug that spawns more than one of the same character in one town.



* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' takes this to the next level. As well as having many different looks, abilties and personalities due to the game being set in a FantasyKitchenSink, all the playable characters have a unique gameplay mechanic and attacks[[note]]The only thing characters have in common in regards to attacks is their standing/crouching A being a poke, and even ''that'' has (admittedly fairly minor) different properties depending on characters[[/note]]. Apart from the anime art style and the guitar work in the character themes, there is almost nothing the cast has in common.
** A trait (minus the Drives) that ''[=BlazBlue=]'' shares in common with its predecessor ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'', naturally.

* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' is very good at giving all the students very distinct looks from each other, helped by the fact that some are drawn in different styles. This is even worked in as a plot point, as [[spoiler:the fact that twins Ikusaba and Enoshima have different faces is what leads Naegi to the truth]].
** However the faces themselves tend to be rather similar to each other, especially among the girls.

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'''s secondary and minor characters vary considerably, in some ways moreso than the main characters who by comparison suffer from OnlySixFaces.

* ''Fanfic/ForestofDespair'' lampshades this, as it is the name of one of the chapters in the prologue. Even though there is no official art of the characters, the author goes into painful detail about how they all look differently from each other.

* ''WesternAnimation/BillyDilleysSuperDuperSubterraneanSummer'' heavily suffers from this! Barring the titular trio, we've got [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal a rat with a tank top and sandals]] [[LazyBum who spend his appearances lazing around]], [[Cute Monster Girl a green female creature]], a sludge-obsessed humanoid tyrant and [[MyBelovedSmother his nagging mother]], [[FrazettaMan a group of ape-like creatures named "Troggies"]], a BarbarianHero who is actually a fraud, a round, dark red, one-eyed creature who looks like a giant meatball, an army of lizard warriors and their leader, and even [[StalkerWithACrush a clingy old witch]]... ...and there's more where that came from!
