** At the beginning of Jonathan Hickman's run, Comicbook/IronMan and ComicBook/CaptainAmerica created an "Avengers machine", in addition to reforming the Avengers with the core members (the movie Avengers). Steve uses it and it brings in ComicBook/TheFalcon, Captain Universe, Hyperion, [[ComicBook/NewMutants Cannonball, Sunspot]], ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}, ComicBook/SpiderMan, ComicBook/SpiderWoman, ComicBook/CaptainMarvel, Smasher, Shang-Chi and [[ComicBook/SecretWarriors Manifold]]. The machine itself lists even ''more'' potential members, such as ComicBook/BuckyBarnes, [[ComicBook/SecretWarriors Daisy Jonhson]] and ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}. Of the assembled Avengers, more than half of the machine's list are left off for whatever reason.

* In the world of ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'', if you somehow get a Pokedex (gift, theft, accident, doesn't matter), it is a guaranteed that you're a necessary force in combating the evil plaguing your region for whatever reason, coincidence, or personal status. Three Dexes are made for each of main regions (with Yellow receiving an older model when the Kanto trio got their upgrades. Four Dexes were also made in Unova). So up to the fifth generation, there are currently seventeen Dex Holders. [[LongRunner For]] [[CashCowFranchise now]].
** Also, each set of regional Gym Leaders officially forms a defense group against whatever evil terrorist group is around. Sure, the Holders always save the day, but the Leaders usually provide very efficient backup.

Apart from the initial roster seen in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', they are soon joined over the course of the series by Mr. Miracle, Captain Marvel, the Flash, Superboy, the Metal Men and Wonder Woman.

** ''X-Men Unlimited'' definitely counts, as it rotated the spotlight not only around the X-Men team, but supporting characters, villains, and even members of other teams with ties to the X-Men. There was even an issue where [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Franklin Richards]] was the focus, in the aftermath of ComicBook/{{Onslaught}}.


* The WhateleyUniverse has grown like this. The original six main characters have grown to around 20 main characters and another dozen or so who have gotten ADayInTheLimelight or CharacterFocus or just a lot more facetime than originally planned. This is only possible because the original half dozen (or so) canon authors have grown to over twice that.
