* ''Manga/RaveMaster'' begings with Haru aquiring Plue. In the next volume (since the first volume all happens around his house) he runs into Elie, and has come across Musica by the end-though it takes another volume for Musica to join.

* ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'' has this for its first arc which adapts ''Film/ThePhantomMenace''. It started out with just Ben and Jim, as well as the GM. Sally first showed up in [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0017.html Strip 17]] after the two arrive on Naboo. Pete joined not long after in [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0046.html Strip 46]] during the escape from Naboo. Annie finally appeared in [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0070.html Strip 70]] shortly after the group land on Tattoine.

* A particularly prolonged example is the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, where the main characters debut in their own movie each before at last banding together in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' - though Black Widow had to make do with getting introduced in Iron Man's [[Film/IronMan2 second movie]]. In the movie itself, they're also introduced in this manner with different S.H.I.E.L.D. agents going out to recruit them.

* This is done in ''EliteBeatAgents'', and for the climactic final character, essentially everybody in the game (except for those in the fourth chapter) gathers together to help the EBA [[spoiler:fight against an army of aliens]].

* ''FireEmblem'' games have a habit of giving you a new character or two... or [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters three or four...]] each chapter.

** This really just holds true for Luffy's first four crewmembers (Zoro, Nami, Usopp, and Sanji), who are introduced and/or join successively in the first five arcs: Zoro appears and joins in the Romance Dawn arc, then Nami is introduced and joins Luffy on a temporary basis in Buggy arc, then Usopp comes in and joins in the Kuro arc, then Sanji appears and joins in the Baratie arc, and finally, Nami joins the crew for good in the Arlong arc.

* ''Film/AlienVsPredator: Requiem'' showed each of the main characters arriving or already in town in short vignettes one after the other. In case you weren't aware these were the main characters, each vignette [[{{Anvilicious}} ends with a zoom to mid-shot for each of them]].

* The computer-animated show ''ShadowRaiders'', this is rather conspicuous. The main character and the plot-driving character are introduced in the first episode, along with a couple more important characters. Then, within the span of five episodes, you've seen everyone of note. If the character wasn't introduced in the first five episodes, they're cannon fodder.

* Dave Barry's novels Big Trouble and Tricky Business introduce all of the primary characters in the first chapters before their plot threads start to (insanely) intertwine.

* ''Anime/ZoidsGenesis'' tries to play with this a bit, by making characters take one episode or so to actually join the team, but otherwise is the usual: The series starts with [[KidHero Ruuji]], the first episode has [[TheLancer Re]] [[TokenMiniMoe Mii]] and [[OldMaster Ra Kan]] (Not [[{{Negima}} that one]]) appear as somewhat ambiguous figures (Even if [[SpoilerOpening the OP ruins this]]) but are revealed as good guys next episode. [[TheChick Kotona]] [[ShotaCon Elegance]] appears in ep 4 and joins in ep 5, [[TheBigGuy Garaga]] appears in ep 5 and joins by 6, [[TheSmartGuy Ron]] appears AND joins in 6, even if he doesn't gets his Zoid until ep 9, and then there's a small gap until [[SixthRanger Seijuurou]] joins in ep 10.
