From what can be recalled, Music/LindsayLohan marries [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Frodo]], Creator/SidneyPoitier works for hotel manager AnthonyHopkins, the coach from ''Film/TheMightyDucks'' (who also directs) and the kid from ''Film/{{Rushmore}}'' manage Creator/DemiMoore, and the young undertaker from ''Series/SixFeetUnder'' gives [[Film/TheMatrix Morpheus]] Dodgers' tickets. 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.

* [[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.

* ''[[FanFic/BreakMyHeartBreakYourHeart Break My Heart, Break Your Heart]]'' is an [[VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} Overwatch]] fanfic in which all but two of the game's 25-and-counting playable characters have their own roles to play in the plot.
* ''FanFic/ShatteredSkies'' is a MagicalGirl CrisisCrossover featuring the casts of Franchise/SailorMoon, Manga/CardcaptorSakura, the first ten Franchise/PrettyCure continuities, Franchise/LyricalNanoha, and Franchise/MadokaMagica uniting against a common threat. Even with much of the casts pared down due to the villains' actions, there are still nearly two-dozen ''main'' characters, hailing from each of the five universes.

* ''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.).

* ''Fanfic/WhatAboutWitchQueen'' utilizes Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Hans from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' and throws in at least ''thirty five'' named characters for a good measure. Moreover, it's sometimes hard to say whether a new character is a one-shot, a new regular cast member or a one-shot who's really a ChekhovsGun. Some of those from the last category can return after twenty chapters of absence.

* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' Fic ''Fanfic/AllAmericanGirl'' involves not only the protagonist Americanized pony Sandalwood/Daisy Jo "DJ" Martinez and her adopted human family, but also her [[TrueCompanions childhood friends]], her husband and children, her other friends and allies, The Mane Six, the princesses, other cannon characters, the ''husbands and children'' of all the cannon characters, and countless other original pony, human, griffin, and changeling characters, from all walks of life. Many of which, either get a POV at some point or their on story in the "Be Human Side Stories".

* Part of {{Wrestling/WCW}}'s grand "Kill The [[{{Wrestling/WWE}} WWF]] in Five Years" plan was to hire as many quality wrestlers as possible- veterans, foreign stars, up-and-comers and indy standouts alike. The problem was that this was mainly done to severely limit the [[{{Wrestling/WWE}} WWF's]] available talent pool and {{Wrestling/WCW}}, who had only a 2-3 hour show, had no intention of using most of these people. Wrestlers were paid not based on whether they were booked for matches, but if they showed up to tapings, and even then, all a performer had to do was sign a register and he was given a full payday no questions asked, regardless of whether he had actually worked that night or not. This left {{Wrestling/WCW}} with a bloated roster, many of whom were getting paid for doing nothing, and who often resented the fact that they weren't being used, and willingly took a paycut to jump to [[{{Wrestling/WWE}} WWF]] where they were actually shown on TV as soon as their contracts expired. This was one of the lesser poor management decisions that lead to TheDeathOfWCW.
