* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has branched out from the original story and now includes [[ExpandedUniverse many tie-in oneshots in the same continuity,]] to the point it now needs its [[Characters/PokemonResetBloodlines own character page]]. Including both official and original characters, and it will most certainly keep expanding.

* The ancient Hindu epic ''{{Mahabharata}}'', part literature and part mythology, defined Loads And Loads Of Characters for possibly the first time ever, and then ''re''defined it just for fun. For most of the story, it's just the five heroes and their wife having wacky adventures. In the final year of the story, the cast suddenly balloons as the heroes are boarded up with a royal family, which naturally includes the extended family and several orders' staff and servants, all named. Then you get to TheWarSequence, and it's the main heroes, miscellaneous friends and political allies, their extended families, and sons and nephews in the double digits ''each'', against the enemy force of ''one hundred'' named villains and ''their'' allies, cousins, sons and nephews. This is just the named characters -- {{mooks}} are in the thousands. And ''each named character'' gets [[CharacterFocus his own story]]. This, kids, is why the ''Mahabharata'' is the longest poem ever written by an incredibly wide margin.

** While the original trilogy 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'''.

* Advertising/{{Geico}} cycles between so many mascots, it's become ridiculous.

* While the Franchise/DisneyPrincess franchise (which is also Disney's biggest and most profitable franchise ever) includes only thirteen princess characters (with some exceptions, however), the Disney villain franchise on the other hand, actually includes the most characters of ''any Disney franchise ever made!''
* While ''Disney/TheLionKing'' movies themselves have a decent range of characters, the extended universe (comics, books, etc) adds several dozen characters to the roster. That's ignoring all the unnamed Outsiders and Pridelanders as well.

Other characters are Shia Lebouf as a buzzed democrat, [[Series/{{Numb3rs}} Charlie Epps]] and Emile Hirsch as drug-dealing hippies, and Helen Hunt and Michael Sheen as a HappilyMarried couple.
* ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'', despite revolving around three leads, has a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casablanca_%28film%29#Cast large cast of characters.]] It has 22 speaking parts, many of whom play some kind of significant role in the plot (or get at least one moment in the limelight).



* The ComingOfAge story ''Film/DazedAndConfused'' has somewhere from 20 to 30 named characters, all of which appear with some frequency over the course of the film. Aside from the few specific leads, though, they're fortunately shuffled into {{Cast Herd}}s.
* The Disney Channel Original Movie ''Film/{{Descendants}}'' features the offspring of Disney characters, both good and evil, as well as appearances by their parents.
* A mainstay of Creator/RolandEmmerich's films: ''Film/IndependenceDay'', ''Film/TheDayAfterTomorrow'', and especially ''Film/TwoThousandTwelve'', which has 150 actors listed on IMDB. (credited ''and'' uncredited). About half of these characters appear once with a single line and are then killed off.
* The film ''Film/LoveActually'' revolves around a cast of nearly 20 characters to a greater or lesser degree. The original and arguably best ensemble movie that inspired similar movies such as ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Year%27s_Eve_(film) New Year's Eve]]'' and ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentine%27s_Day_(film) Valentine's Day]]''.
* 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.).
** ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'' is set to outdo '''''Civil War'''''. There are the Avengers, their allies, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the unaffiliated heroes, the supporting characters, and of course, [[BigBad Thanos]]. All of this has been confirmed ''[[UpToEleven before the full cast has even been announced]]''.
** The character index on this site has ''thirty six'' subpages divided between three subgroups, plus an index to help you find which subpage you're looking for.

* The original run of ''Franchise/ThePinkPanther'' films consists of nine movies and ''many'' characters who make multiple appearances. The original protagonist, GentlemanThief Sir Charles Lytton, and his associates were overshadowed by BreakoutCharacter Inspector Clouseau, and Clouseau was given his own set of allies and enemies in the second film (''Film/AShotInTheDark''). While only three characters -- Clouseau, Dreyfus, and Cato -- make seven or more onscreen appearances, there are quite a few who turn up two to six times. There are also a significant number of important one-shot characters, which include the protagonists of films seven through nine.
* ''Recount'', an HBO MadeForTVMovie about the 2000 US presidential election, has many characters on both sides, with the Democrats being led by Kevin Spacey and Dennis Leary (with help from [[Literature/NineteenEightyFour Winston Smith]]). Oh, and they're all based on real people. Tom Wilkinson leads the Republicans.
