** Probably two of the most striking examples of this in {{RPG}}s are ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'', which has 45 characters total, and the {{Suikoden}} series, which has OneHundredAndEight (although, to be fair, the vast majority of the 108 are minor characters). Also notable are the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series, while having a reasonably small amount of characters, have hundreds upon hundreds of {{Mons}} that may be convinced to ally with the player.

** In ''FireEmblem'', if there's a named character on the field, good odds point to that character either joining you or being the boss of the level. In ''Path of Radiance'', many characters decide to join your army for the flimsiest of reasons regardless of any protestations from your characters.

** ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'' continues this, with Yuma starting out with only two friends and ending up with 9-12 friends, depending on how you count.

* The Morioh gang in ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Part 4''. They're the switcharoo type. The same two or three characters are usually always involved, but they're helped each time by different companions.

* The Tanith First-And-Only Regiment of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}: GauntsGhosts'' has twice taken on a great deal of new blood to replace losses they've suffered.

* In Literature/TheBelgariad, this happens twice. The first time, it was done intentionally by Belgarath to "fulfill the prophecy". In The Mallorean the trope is followed correctly, even if [[DeadpanSnarker Prophecy]] itself [[YouCantFightFate has to intervene]] at times.

* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', the RebelLeader Demetrio has a gift for attracting characters to his cause. When faced with a SadisticChoice between his life in exchange for a major ally for the cause and the freedom of his TrueCompanions, or his freedom but their deaths, the other [[LaResistance Ignauts]] argue that although they've banded together for a greater purpose, without him they have no hope of ever achieving it.

* The Ankh-Morpork City Watch in the ''Series/{{Discworld}}'' novels. Initially it comprises four members: Vimes, Nobby, Colon and Carrot. In their second appearance they add Angua and Detritus. From then on new members are mentioned every book, until the Watch had expanded to the point where Sir Terry didn't need to say "X was a new recruit"; it was acceptable there were watchmen who we simply hadn't met before because of the size of the organisation.

* In ''GetBackers'', the protagonists' villains also often return as allies. As a result, the one arc to feature a large cast is an almost all-villain team.

* The ComicBook/{{X-Men}} and their affiliates. The sole criteria for being affiliated with the team is that you have to either be a {{Mutant}}, or involved in mutant politics in some way or other (a sympathetic human, an [[DePower ex-mutant]], a genetic experiment from another dimension who happened to get saved by mutants, etc). Since about 10% of the MarvelUniverse's population used to be mutants at one point, this meant [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters a great deal of snowballing]], and even after the [[ComicBook/HouseOfM "Decimation"]] event had over 90% of ''that'' population BroughtDownToNormal, the X-Books' cast is still larger than almost all of Marvel's other properties, ''put together.''
