I guess the absolute minimum would depend on the amount of seats the airline has decided to put in their A380. Isn't the requirement 1 FA per each starting 50 seats. So an A380 with maximum number of seats (853) would require 18 FAs!

Varies depending on jurisdiction. Australia is one per 36 pax, Canada is one per 40(?), USA one per 50. There are probably others.
On widebodies it's also affected by the number of doors. I think many regulatory authorities require one flight attendant at each exit door during takeoff and landing.
