* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' you manage to recruit several people with no very good reason to come with you, who you meet on your way. Including one who first tries to kill you for money. Some are forced on to you (Morrigan), some feel they owe you a debt (Wynne, Oghren), and some have nothing better to do (Shale, Sten).

* ''Series/DoctorWho'', to an extent. The Doctor is on an endless thrillseeking journey in time and space, and tends to pick up particularly adventurous people they happen to meet during a crisis. They inevitably leave (usually after a particularly big adventure, at least in the revival), at which point the process starts all over again.

* This is the way recruitment works in ''VideoGame/MassEffect1''--save for starting squad member Kaidan Alenko, each is recruited sequentially during the main quest and joins the team as soon as you meet them. The alien members served as {{m|rExposition}}outhpieces on their species' history and culture, and all six combat classes were represented by the six squad members.

*** It also converses the previous game's use of this. Ask Archangel how he put together a team to take on the underworld of Omega and he'll reply he followed Shepard's example; he started doing something about the criminals and people got inspired and joined up.

** ''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.
