* The first ''VideoGame/{{Sonic The Hedgehog|1}}'' was this, consisting of only [[TheHero Sonic]] and [[BigBad Eggman]]; but from ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'' onward the series began to move out of it until it until it eventually had LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters. Like the ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' example above, this became an issue when the earlier AlternateContinuity [[WesternAnimation/{{The Adventures Of Sonic The Hedgehog}} animated]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Sonic SatAM}} shows]] were in development which made it necessary to add a lot of {{Canon Foreigner}}s to balance out this problem.

* ''TheManWhoFoldedHimself'' by David Gerrold -- the main cast is an indeterminate number between one and five, inclusive. However, all of them are future, past, or alternate-timeline versions of the protagonist. The scores of extras are ALSO future, past, or alternate-timeline versions of the protagonist. [[spoiler: Since even Uncle Jim is this, the only non-Dan character seems to be the lawyer at the beginning of the story who informs Dan that he's nearly broke.]]

* ''Theatre/TheShapeOfThings'' was made from Creator/NeilLaBute's stage play of the same name. Like ''Tape'', the only characters to have speaking parts are the four characters of the play -- portrayed by the same cast too!

* Tomoko from ''Manga/NoMatterHowILookAtItItsYouGuysFaultImNotPopular'' is an extremely awkward introvert so this is expected. The only major characters in the anime adaptation are her brother, her mother, her friend Yuu, and an upperclassman who tries to befriend Tomoko.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' is a particularly serious offender, having only four characters. While it could be argued that the seemingly sentient plants and the random sheep that pops up every now and then might count, they're still little more than props in terms of how they're used.
