I'm going to suggest a picture of several Sonic characters. This one contains a few canon foreigners and transformations, but maybe that's not a problem?
This one contains characters who appear in games.

Eitherís good with me; I lean toward 1.1.

Iíll go with 1.1.
Concept's good, but both suggestions are super blurry and not transparent.
Luckily, these both just seem to be PNGs stacked on top of each other, so it shouldn't be too hard to make a higher-quality, transparent versions. I'll try to make those later.
Here's a picture of Mario characters. I'm sure we can set aside the Sonic characters for Characters.Sonic The Hedgehog.

That's very clearly loads and loads compared to OP.
Thatís even better.

Either OP could go on Characters.Sonic The Hedgehog.

6 is in and tagged for this page; caption?
I prefer 1.1 for Characters.Sonic The Hedgehog.
"It's a me, Mario...and so, so, so many others!"
I, uh, hate to come in here and throw a wrench into things, but that Mario picture uses fan models (Baby DK, Baby Wario, Goomba King, Wart, Pauline I think, among others) and straight up has a character that hasn't appeared in canon (Baby Waluigi. Also not sure where that blue thing with the scar is from). The quality is also atrocious.
The Sonic pictures, to my knowledge, also use fanart for at least three characters (Rotor, Mighty, Nack).
And also Ray. Here's another picture of Mario characters. It also contains Donkey Kong Country characters, but maybe that's not an issue. Also, the quality needs some work.

And who commented out on the page that Sonic isn't an example?
I believe because of these parts of the description right here:
A show that has so many regulars that you can't fit them all into one episode. Therefore, one week some characters will appear, while some different characters will appear in another. You'll rarely get the same combination twice.
Please note that this is for extreme examples of regularly occurring characters. It's really not all that uncommon for a story to have ten or fifteen characters, especially with a Villain of the Week format.
Sonic has a shitload of characters, but in most cases the characters are one-offs while the main cast is usually Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, ect. The cast is wide but the focus is slim, basically.
Hell, that's kind of the same for Mario; the mainline games focus on Mario, Peach, and Bowser, maybe with Luigi and some Toads on occasion, but the spinoffs have much greater character variety even if those four show up every time.
Though honestly I wouldn't be surprised if Loads and Loads of Characters is misused as, well, a work having loads and loads of characters, even if the focus of the work is on a small subset of them.
Oh, and for 22. I actually like it way more than 6, as the model variety really hammers home how vast and long-lasting the franchise is.

Current and Classic Sonic don't fit that definition, but the "Adventure-era" of Sonic absolutely fits. It had countless recurring characters, and each game featured a different lineup of them. That was a major criticism of that era, to the point that it became a meme.
