* Creator/RobLiefeld is well-known for the many, many characters he creates, especially in the early [[Creator/ImageComics Image Universe]] kickstarted by his series ''ComicBook/{{Youngblood}}''. However, this one of the best-known cases of a [[TropesAreNotGood misuse of this trope]], considering that many of them are {{Ersatz}} versions of famous heroes who get little development if any at all before Rob throws another team, group or set out of nowhere and starts writing about them. Not to mention that OnlySixFaces is in effect, making a lot of them hard to distinguish from one and other. It's actually been suspected that the large cast was accumulated because Liefeld would quickly ''get bored'' of what he's currently writing. As Linkara put it...

-->'''[[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]]:''' A good creator is capable of making more that just one good character. Liefeld, on the other hand, settles on inventing 60,000 characters and ''none'' of them are good!

Added DiffLines:

* The ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' may be largely divorced from the greater Marvel Universe (but not without some crossover), but don't let that make you think the series will have a MinimalistCast as a result. In the first arc alone, consisting of eighteen issues, you have the Alex, Gert, Karolina, Chase, Nico, and Molly as well as their TeamPet Old Lace making up the Runaways themselves. Then you have their parents: The Wilders, Yorkes, Deans, Steins, Minorus, and Hayeses compose the Pride. Various other characters such as Lt. Flores, Topher, ComicBook/CloakAndDagger make appearances throughout, and of course, there's the [[GreaterScopeVillain Gibborim]]. Oh, and ComicBook/CaptainAmerica makes an appearance at the end. This amounts to ''27 characters'' in just a mere eighteen issues. It only goes up from there.

* ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'': You have the original humans, the religious deities, the demons, numerous added humans (especially with the Matriarchy Arcs), characters symbolizing America and other abstracts, supernatural characters, living items, pets,... [[Characters/{{Sinfest}} Perhaps something of every type one could imagine.]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Sins}}''. You've got the SevenDeadlySins...that's not so bad. Then consider that all but two have been replaced. And some have been replaced ''twice''. And then there's the Seven Holy Virtues, the golems, the Vices, the hosts... and Murdock.

* ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'': the core cast alone consists of ''26'' characters!

* ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'': the core The main cast alone consists of ''26'' characters!characters, and thats just the ''initial'' members! The massive cast being split up so thin in [='VRcade'=] is what led to the episode's massive length too.

* The ''Comicbook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}'' comic has even more characters than its animated counterpart. Over the entire run, there have been more than 80 distinct members of the team. Because of frequent {{continuity reboot}}s, who is actually on the team varies from time to time but the core group is generally the size of 20-30 or so members at any time.
** They aren't called the "Legion" for nothing
** And since the recent mini-series is called ''"Legion of Three Worlds"'', well, you do the math...

* [[ComicBook/DisneyMouseAndDuckComics Disney Comics]] hits this trope pretty hard; just the family trees of {{Mickey|Mouse}}, DonaldDuck, and WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} alone are really big, and the long number of other supporting cast members...
* ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'' to the point that a guide book had to be published.
** Though only a dozen or so hold any real bearing on the plot, most of them just exist for giant group shots of people fighting.
