Added DiffLines:

* ''VisualNovel/WeKnowTheDevil'' has main characters Jupiter, Neptune, and Venus, and very minor characters Group South (technically three people, but treated as a whole) and the Bonfire Captain, the latter two appearing in only one scene each. The vast majority of the game involves only the three main characters. [[spoiler: And arguably, there's the Devil and God.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The first ''VideoGame/ClockTower''game was this, with only the Player Character Jennifer Simpson, her three friends who become murder victims, the Evil Mrs. Burroughs and her two monster sons, her crazed husband who only appears in a cage and barely has any bearing on the plot, and Jennifer's father, whom is only seen as a corpse. Later Clock Tower games would add on more victims and or killers.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/TwoGuysAndGuy'' only has Frank, Wayne and Guy, plus four sporadically appearing minor characters. Anyone else is just a nameless one-shot.

Added DiffLines:

* Possibly the biggest example in shorts was "Good Night Elmer", which was Elmer Fudd ''alone''. And he had no dialogue, the cartoon being pretty much a mime act.
