** 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.

* BioWare loves this trope for their [=RPG=]s, because it pops up again in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''. You can meet each of the playable characters in sequence. Depending on what order you choose for visiting certain areas, though, you can dodge this trope.

[[folder:Theater]]
* The early Creator/GilbertAndSullivan opera ''Theater/TheSorcerer'' spends most of its first act introducing us to all of the main characters, each of whom gets either an IAmSong or an IWantSong, in succession. Nothing plot-related actually happens until the Incantation scene, about ten minutes before intermission. (As the collaboration matured, later G&S shows became much more wily about mixing exposition with plot.)

** With ''TransformersArmada'', it was more that "reinforcements" for both sides were either late to the party or weren't summoned until later. Apparently Megatron thought he could handle things with three mediocre soldiers and Optimus with two.
