Loads and Loads of Characters may refer to one of the following tropes:
- Cast Calculus: Choosing the right cast size and splitting traits between them.
- Cast Herd: Large cast split into groups.
- Cast of Snowflakes: All characters are visually distinctive, even minor ones.
- Crowded-Cast Shot: A scene or gag where the focus is on how they cram as much of the cast in it as possible.
- A Day in the Limelight: An episode focused on a secondary character.
- Ensemble Cast: The story spends a roughly equal amount of time on all or most of the characters rather than having a single protagonist.
- Four Lines, All Waiting: A large cast means that there are multiple simultaneous plots in a single episode/work.
- Girl of the Week: A new Love Interest shows up every week, and is usually gone by the end.
- Massive Multiplayer Crossover: A Crossover between three or more continuities you'd never think would ever meet. Ever.
- Monster of the Week: Facing an unrelated monstrous threat once per weekly episode.
- Rotating Protagonist: Each character (supporting or minor) has equal or significant screentime as with the main characters.
- Victim of the Week: Someone gets killed or otherwise messed with every episode.
