* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'': Remilia Scarlet has several hundred maids. This seems to be more of an attempt to invoke this trope than anything else as, excepting [[NinjaMaid Sa]][[TimeStandsStill ku]][[KnifeNut ya]], they're all fairies, making them completely useless. In one of the official manga, she bolsters the service by adopting a gaggle of hobgoblins.

** Likewise, Ritch Dotcom from [[MegaManStarForce the sequel series]] has ''Secretary'' Corps who are InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals. Justified in the games where non important [=NPCs=] have generic sprites, but they all look the same in the anime.

* ''Manga/GirlsBravo'': Fukuyama's estate is regularly patrolled by an army of gun wielding maids, who're all ex-military. But they're mainly there to cater to [[HandsomeLech his perversion]], since he has floor vents installed throughout the mansion to create updrafts whenever he wants to see [[PantyShot under their skirts.]]]

* In the ''Series/GetSmart'' movie ''The Nude Bomb'', the villain's plan was to first destroy all fabric in the world and then rule it by becoming the only supplier of clothing. The obvious problem (how to provide such clothing) would be solved with his one expert seamstress and a cloning machine, which he planned to use to build an ''army'' of seamstresses. (In fact, the revelation that he ''had'' a clothing machine was the key to an important plot point that had puzzled the protagonist through the whole movie.)

Oh, and usually they ''all'' wear {{Meido}} / FrenchMaid uniforms. Yes, including the ones whose duties would normally require a completely different dress code. [[SarcasmMode Such is the power of]] {{Fanservice}}.[[note]]Note to editors: Examples where fewer than, say, 2/3rds of them wear it may fit better under AmazonBrigade. If it's their equivalent of full dress uniform, [[TropesAreFlexible that's close enough.]][[/note]]

Some of the [[UpToEleven truly huge]] Maid Corps may leave one wondering how their employer's finances haven't collapsed yet from attempting to employ so many maids for so many (often [[GadgeteerGenius high]]-[[PrivateMilitaryContractor budget]]) "responsibilities"; thus, having a Maid Corps usually designates a character as [[{{Fiction 500}} obscenely filthy rich]].

* ''{{Fireball}}'': Drossel has thousands of robotic servants made by her {{Posthumous Character}} father. However, they're all invisible and programmed to stay out of her way, so for God knows how long she wasn't aware they existed. [[HilarityEnsues And then Gedächtnis told her about them.]]
* In ''SacredSeven'', the Aiba Foundation has a literal army of maids. Not only do they take care of the typical house chores, but they also act as Mission Control, use weapons, and pilot support vehicles and generally act as backup for the main characters during battles.
