* ''Webcomic/GamerChicks'' and ''Lessons in Distraction'' infamously portray crowds as white circles in a yellow mass. In a [[http://gamerchicks.comicgenesis.com/d/20070922.html hilariously blatant instance of this]] which actually became a short-lived meme, with a crowd of people staring at her chest looked like a giant block of CartoonCheese shooting lasers.

* ''Gamer Chicks'' had a [[http://gamerchicks.comicgenesis.com/d/20070922.html hilariously blatant instance of this]] which actually became a short-lived meme, with the main character coming into the Gamestop/equivalent store where she worked, her white shirt soaked from the rain outside. What was meant to convey a crowd of people staring at her chest looked like a giant block of CartoonCheese shooting lasers.

* A computer animation variant: In ''WarPlanets'', the entire population of one planet, Planet Rock -- apart from the royal family, who are main characters -- wear identical suits of armor that conceal all distinguishing features. This was particularly obvious in a StoryArc in which the king [[TenMinuteRetirement abdicates]]; the new king, since he wasn't going to hang around long enough to make it worth creating a new character design, was depicted by another instance of the same anonymous armor.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Animation/{{Oddbods}}'' makes any non-main character Oddbod used for filler have a simple grey jumpsuit without any antenna or face markings to identify them like the main seven have. The only difference is a grey line of eyelashes that the girl ones have that the boys lack, along with child ones being much smaller.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/MekakucityActors'' takes it up a notch; depending on which areas the main cast appear in during a flashback, the masses turn into something related to it. Momo's flashback represented everyone in her art class as easels, and Shintarou's flashback had the rest of the class as radios, to name a few examples.

* ''VideoGame/PrettyRhythmAuroraDream'', uses colored silhouettes for anyone not part of the main cast.
* ''Animation/{{Pucca}}'' spoofs this trope by having the extras be pink and blue smiley gum-drop people. The series proper has a large cast of extras and no real need for them, but they're used for comedy nonetheless.

* Notably averted in ''{{Concession}}''. The author uses a "random character generator" to assign a species, gender, sexuality, and religion to each one of the extras (usually customers at the titlular concession stand), and writes a detailed backstory for them that's found at the bottom of the page. A few of the randomly generated characters have become minor or even major characters, most notably CampGay skunk Nicole.
