There are many more tropes to find by searching for "crowd".

I've tried adding all the related tropes by searching for "crowd". I didn't add In With The In Crowd because "in-crowd" actually refers to a small group of people. Other tropes like Win Back The Crowd are Audience Reactions tropes.

Not to be confused with Pothole Magnet, which is for tropes with a crowded wick section

I don't think Foreboding Fleeing Flock counts because it could be just a small group of fleeing animals. Granted, most of these tropes have edge cases where a small group could count as a crowd, but the focus of this trope is on the "foreboding" element, not the large number of animals fleeing.

Would All Of The Other Reindeer count, since it involves large groups, or is that too situational?

I think All Of The Other Reindeer would count as a large group of characters.

It could also be called Crowd Tropes, if "[Noun] Tropes" is more standardized for naming indexes.

^ Since "[Noun] Tropes" does seem to be a standard for these types of index names I've changed the name from Crowded Tropes to Crowd Tropes.

Added blurbs to those missing them.
