The [[Music/Furious7Soundtrack soundtrack album]] of ''[[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Furious 7]]'' features a whopping '''31''' artists, consisting primarily of rappers, [=DJs=], latin artists, and pop singers.singers. This is mainly because a lot of the artists collaborated with one another.

* In ''FanFic/TheStoryToEndAllStories'', the cast keeps growing as the story goes on. [[spoiler:Lampshaded by Poirot towards the end.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/VoidDomain'' has a primary Point-Of-View cast of about ten characters. Then there are all the background and side characters and plenty of main characters who simply do not get point-of-view segments. The cast page tends to grow every handful of chapters.

** Matt Fraction brought up as many mutants he can to the new X-Men base, Utopia island. Not only all X-Men members, their students, New Mutants, his original creations and characters he brought back from the death or ComicBookLimbo but even {{Magneto}} and... [[ComicBook/SubMariner Namor]]. One wonders why, as he clearly crossed the line and cannot handle so much of them (I doubt anybody would), yet brings back another ones.

* Franchise/{{Batman}} Probably has the largest cast of villains, allies and supporting characters of any one superhero. he's perhaps the ultimate IneffectualLoner.

* The Western record probably goes to the DC and Marvel universes themselves, as evidenced by various ''CrisisCrossover'' events. ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' put together every version of every major hero at once while throwing in a couple of unique characters. That's just counting the main story line, side stories eventually pulled in virtually every single character in DC history.
** ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' had almost ''every'' DCU character who had their own series ''ever.''

* The ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' fan fic ''Fanfic/{{PRIMARCHS}}'', aside from the 20 Primarchs, features more or less every well know character in ''[=WH40K=]'' canon. Then it starts bringing in characters from ''[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} Warhammer Fantasy]]'', ''{{Starcraft}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'', ''StarWars'', ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' and then some. This goes to the point where the author regularly forgets how many characters are in any particular scene. Due to having NoFourthWall, this is frequently lampshaded by the characters themselves.

* While the original ''Franchise/StarWars'' films had a relatively manageable cast, the prequel films feature far more. There is Anakin, Obi Wan, Yoda, Mace Windu, Chancellor Palpatine, Count Dooku, General Grievous, Nute Gunray, Qui Gon Jinn, Padme, Panaka, Typho, Jango Fett, Cody, dozens more clones and countless named characters with speaking roles.
* ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' continues this tradition and has even more than the prequels. There's Finn, Rey, Poe Dameron, BB-8, Maz Kanata aligned with the Resistance. Then there's the villains; Kylo Ren, General Hux, Captain Phasma, General Snoke of the First Order. Add that to the characters from the original movies; Han, Leia, Chewbacca, C-3PO, [=R2D2=] and Luke. That's ''15'', and that's not counting the actors in unspecified roles, which makes '''25'''.

Along the side of the panel was a ''SixDegreesOfKevinBacon''-style chain of how they are connected to one another.

of a Sunday strip involved Jason downloading the cast list of ''ComicStrip/{{Doonesbury}}'', and the file was many megabytes in size.

* ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'', a notable LongRunner, contains about twenty principal characters (Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Lucy, Rerun, Schroeder, Woodstock, Sally, Marcie, Frieda, Peppermint Patty, Franklin, Pig-Pen, Spike, Shermy, Eudora, Molly Volley, Crybaby Boobie, Patty, Violet, 5, Peggy Jean), and the unseen Little Red-Haired Girl, Mrs Othmar, and all the parents, and a sentient schoolhouse. A few of them were [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome brother chucked]], though.

** A complete list of all the characters is [[http://fivecentsplease.com/dpb/castlist.html here]]. Oh, and that's just the ''named'' cast members.
** The core of the cast is probably Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Lucy, Schroeder, Woodstock, Sally, Peppermint Patty, and Marcie. Due to the strip's LongRunner status, the core of the cast has evolved as it's gone on. Shermy, Patty, Violet, Pig-Pen, Frieda, Franklin, Rerun, and Eudora have been members of the core, or at least the main cast, at some point or another; a case could also be made for 5, Roy, Spike, and Rerun's aforementioned friend.

* The 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.
