* Crowd scenes in {{DC Comics}}' yearly mega-crossovers. Hey, look, there's the last living Bloodlines guy! Bonus: when they include made-up heroes nobody has ever seen before as crowd-filler.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', like TeamFortress2, has characters who are instantly recognizable and easily distinguished from one another in the middle of a frantic battle (albeit 21 of them instead of 9). This even extends to Hanzo and Genji, the two characters who are brothers and would have the greatest excuse for looking similar but don't.

* Common with classic manga artists, such as Creator/OsamuTezuka, ShotaroIshinomori, Creator/GoNagai and Creator/KenIshikawa. Impressive when you consider that these artists generally drew most of their characters with black hair and conservative hair styles.

* ''Manga/Dorohedoro'''s characters are quite distinct. While some facial features are reused often, the resemblances between characters that ''are'' present tend to be intentional, and without hair and clothes, they'd all still be pretty easy to tell apart.

* Creator/JohnKricfalusi and Spumco produced shows, such as ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' and ''TheRippingFriends''. Of course, all of it is done with full intention, since this ''is'' Creator/JohnKricfalusi we're talkin' about.

* ''HuntikSecretsAndSeekers'' is good about this, having unique designs for everyone, even random civilians and [[{{Mooks}} Suits]].

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' games love this trope. ''Every'' one has a playable cast of at least 20 characters and a huge amount of side characters, all of whom look different. Generic enemies and {{Non Player Character}}s usually [[http://www.awkwardzombie.com/index.php?page=0&comic=070912 don't get this luxury]].

* ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'' might count as an exaggerated example. In a show with '''32''' main characters in the protagonist team ''alone'' (and then we start adding the five main rival teams, the support cast...) they ''still'' go out of their way to try to make random background characters memorable. ''[[UpToEleven Then]]'' they add personal traits (as meta-characters) to the teams and tanks themselves, to the point that the sheer detail of each apparently broke the folder system.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBros'' applies this and takes it a step further. When there are large numbers of ''mundane'' background extras, they tend to be unique and distinctive, but there is no hesitation to reuse them later without regard for their identity or context. When it comes to crowds of ''heroes and villains'', however, even characters that are seen only for a few seconds in the background are memorable enough that it's easy to believe they each have their own name and canon. Indeed, many of them turn up later with just that; Sgt. Hatred, for example, was first seen waiting in line at arch-villain tryouts before becoming a recurring character, then a main cast regular. Unnamed ''henchmen'' on the other hand, are usually FacelessMasses. The handful of exceptions, such as #21 and #24, are seriously lampshaded.

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' has an odd relationship with this trope; typically, the characters have OnlySixFaces (or, in Alphes' case concerning the fighting games, literally everyone has the same face shape) and even ZUN's art tends to blur on first appearance. The official manga also occasionally fall into it. However, ZUN is highly skilled when it comes to outfits and expressions, since ''here'' you find a staggering amount of differences and no two characters wear the same clothes or use the same techniques except for small groups (like the lunar military's bunny corps).

* ''VideoGame/Undertale'', being a game where the vast majority of characters are monsters, is highly diverse in its character designs. Very few characters are even of the same species, and when they are, they always have extreme variation in their body types and facial structures. This extends beyond the main cast of the game-- even the unnamed NPCs you meet throughout the Underground have unique sprites and designs. The few exceptions to this rule tend to be restricted to "random encounter" monsters, whom you can speak with outside of battle after clearing an area, the RUINS, and Temmie Village.
