** ''PlanescapeTorment'' is slightly similar, in that there turns out to be a reason why all the seemingly random companions end up joining the Nameless One--even for those who aren't his companions from a former incarnation.

In computer role-playing games with a party of playable characters, most are typically encountered this way. An aggravating variation occurs in many western-style [=CRPGs=] in which you can only have so many party members at once. While you can still only recruit certain characters, you have to dump current party members temporarily in order to change around your party. Since there's no console-style portable hyper-dustbin to leave spare companions, you actually have to track them down again if you want them back. In some games, they may be so insulted by being discarded that they're LostForever.

This often results in the formation of a RagtagBunchOfMisfits. This trope can delve into BecauseDestinySaysSo or even ContrivedCoincidence, as the average viewer might find it very improbable So weekend is October 21-23? so many people with just the needed talents can be encountered along the path of the Epic Quest. See Also PlotTailoredToTheParty, CharacterMagneticTeam, DebutQueue, MagneticHero. Expect at least one episode to be devoted to a member facing the LeaveYourQuestTest.

Added DiffLines:

* The main cast of ''Manga/InuYasha'' assembles in this manner. It starts out with just Kagome, then she meets Inuyasha. Then they encounter Shippo, Miroku, and Sango after they embark on their quest to collect the jewel shards.

* In "Literature/TheFoolOfTheWorldAndTheFlyingShip," it's understood, if unspoken, that Fate or some Higher Power is directing the encounters, given that the Fool is told he must give a ride to anyone who asks him; and of course each person he encounters does ask him. He picks up, in short order and completely unconnected: a man who runs extremely fast; a man who can hear things miles away; a man who can see things miles away; a man who can keep eating and never be full; a man of extraordinary strength who generally seems to be a weakling; and a man with a bundle of sticks which he can turn into soldiers. Various versions add to or subtract from the lineup, but the PlotTailoredToTheParty at the end always requires each of their strengths, in some combination.
