* [[ComicBook/DisneyMouseAndDuckComics Disney Comics]] hits this trope pretty hard; just the family trees of {{Mickey|Mouse}}, DonaldDuck, and {{Goofy}} alone are really big, and the long number of other supporting cast members...

This can cause crediting issues for shows with an OBB (opening billboard), leading to FakeGuestStar or being shunted into the ClosingCredits for logistical reasons.

* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' has a relatively small core cast (twelve main characters), but add in all the spin-offs that are counted as part of the series' world and the list of recurring characters alone pushes triple digits. Some of these characters are a pop-corn mixer, a printer or a wagon full of pancakes. Not anthropomorphized. Just a regular popcorn maker named Frank Benedetto.

* The Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse has ''dozens'' of major characters: each individual hero has a good five or six supporting characters who show up in every movie of theirs, and there are six leads and maybe twice as many recurring secondary characters in the tie-in TV series; not to mention many one-off bad guys, those bad guys' supporting characters, and a number of characters who appear variously across the franchise to tie it all together without being affiliated with a single hero or group. It's especially obvious in the teaser material for ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', which has only a partial cast list announced so far, but already includes ''eleven'' leads. ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' manages to outdo ''Age of Ultron'' with 12 superheroes (ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, ComicBook/IronMan, ComicBook/BlackPanther, ComicBook/BlackWidow, [[ComicBook/BuckyBarnes The Winter Soldier]], ComicBook/TheFalcon, ComicBook/ScarletWitch, ComicBook/TheVision, ComicBook/WarMachine, ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}, ComicBook/SpiderMan, and Comicbook/AntMan[=/=]Giant-Man), at least two villains (Baron Zemo and Crossbones), and various supporting characters (ComicBook/Agent13, [[ComicBook/RedHulk Thunderbolt Ross]], Aunt May, etc.).
