* New Laverne's appearance in ''{{Scrubs}}''.
* Although very little emotional or character development occured in ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'', ExecutiveMeddling blamed the mountains of [[{{ContinuityNod}} Continuity Nods]] for alienating new viewers. It's one reason that show was canceled, but also one reason fans loved it.

* Seems to be utterly averted in ''{{Fringe}}'' -- as more characters (from the AlternateUniverse) are added and the {{Arc}} becomes more dominant, the plot speeds up and there are events of major significance per episode; thus, a simultaneous increase in mass and energy.

* David Weber's ''Literature/{{Safehold}}'' series is a good example too: in first book (one main POV) action took two years in-story. Book six (after adding many, many [=POVs=] during previous ones) in longer, but concerns only five months. As to NIE/B[[note]]Number of Important Events per Book[[/note]], zig-zagged: in book two it's less than in book one, then book three has more, then books four and five see steady fall and in books six and seven NIE/B rises.

* George R.R. Martin's ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' demonstrates the first part of this trope nicely. As more and more POV characters are introduced, the plot has slowed down considerably as time and space is used to develop each POV. The first three books are very well written and gripping whereas the fourth is slower paced and focuses mostly on sideplots with hardly any of the series' main protagonists featuring. The fifth gets things back on track but is still very slow.
** Martin is much aware of this trope. He's stated that there will be no more new POV characters in future books. And half-jokingly claims that he needs to start [[AnyoneCanDie killing off]] more characters in ''The Winds of Winter''.

* ''BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Dawn is introduced, an episode or two are spent explaining her relationship with the rest of the group. Also when [[RichBitch Cordelia]] left the show, Anya was brought back to fill the "Xander's LoveInterest /DeadpanSnarker" role.

* ''{{Bleach}}'' is a textbook case of the results of suddenly introducing LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters since the start of the Soul Society arc: the plot slowed down as tons of secondary characters were briefly introduced, and in the Fake Karakura Town arc the plots slows down ''even more'' as many of these characters are given multi-chapter fights.
