* Predictably, the Summoner class from DungeonFighterOnline. Any PC might have ways to summon help - there's rare equipment for that and an entire crafting discipline. A regular female mage may also have readied a single contracted summon, and technically briefly manifests elementals to cast many spells. A Witch makes long-term contracts with elemental familiars (in questlines absent from the game's current version) and thus might also have several present at once doing things. A Summoner makes numerous summoning contracts and takes quantity over quality with elementals to raise small armies. Clever use of ElementalBaggage can raise ''multiple'' minions from a single spell, and as unimpressive as basic minions are, a Summoner is constantly raising more and using their presence to call stronger species.

** Also from ''One Piece'' is [[TheDon Capone "Gang" Bege]], a mob boss who carries his entire syndicate within his body: He ate the Castle-Castle Fruit, which allows him to shrink objects and people and store them inside of himself, with his body's interiors resembling that of a castle. He engages in absolutely no fighting of his own--rather, he deploys out whatever men he has that's best suited for the situation and overwhelms enemies through sheer numbers and firepower.

One effect his nature as a Minion Master has is that he cannot be ambushed, as there is always at least one lookout covering every direction. Another effect is that he (or his mobsters, at least) can attack from any combination of directions simultaneously.

* Similarly, ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend''.
''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'' has you controlling commanders who summon their forces and can fight alongside their army, even having special {{Combination Attack}}s with each unit.

* A character literally named "Minion Master" appears in ''SluggyFreelance''. When introduced his only minions are Torg and crew (about four people), who are using him as a cover to fight Hereti-Corp. Later Torg recruits him a bunch of Digbots, pleasing Minion Master to no end.

** The Witch Doctor in ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' is a similar concept but somewhat toned down, as he typically has a handful of zombie dogs and a gargantuan zombie at his heel, plus fights by summoning various animals or undead that attack enemies before disappearing quickly back into the ether. Specialized high-tier equipment can increase the size of the Witch Doctor's horde, from slightly increasing the number of zombie dogs to making the Fetish Army (a mass of knife-wielding, baby-sized skeletons) last forever instead of just a few seconds. Similarly, the right equipment can make the Demon Hunter, normally TheTurretMaster, into a veritable zookeeper by giving them up to ten animal companions of various species instead of just one.

** The set dungeon associated with this armor plays up the minion master role even more, requiring the Witch Doctor clear the instance without being hit by any melee attack. This requires hiding behind an army of minions and letting them clear the way.

* The [[GreenThumb Sadida]] class in the WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}} MMO has this as their primary schtick. While they possess a wide variety of nature-based powers, their abilities are mediocre unless supplemented by the hordes of voodoo dolls they're capable of summoning. Almost every passive (and quite a few active) abilities the class has revolves around their dolls in some way, with even their bread-and-butter elemental spells having additional and occasionally esoteric effects when cast on one. In line with this trope, many other classes have at least one summon, but the Sadida is the only one that can have more than one out at once. It is entirely possible for a high level Sadida to outnumber the rest of the fight by themselves!
