** Crash and Coco don't look much like bandicoots. Coco especially, since she lacks a long snout like her brother.

* The ''Therizinosaurus'' from ''VideoGame/DinoCrisis'' not only look nothing like the real animal (having crested carnosaur-like heads, short necks, and no pot bellies), but also small and carnivorous. Then again, it may have been ScienceMarchesOn.

** While Infinite looks like a cross between a HumanoidAbomination and a CartoonCreature, the prequel comics reveal [[spoiler: he's actually a jackal,]] despite not resembling a real one at all.

** Stunky and Skuntank are supposed to look like skunks, but they have [[StealthPun cat heads]] instead [[note as in, polecats, a common name for mustelinids (weasels), including skunks./]]. Also, Skuntank looks more like a honey badger than an actual skunk.

* Fire Leo from ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'', despite being a lion actually doesn't even look like a lion at all. Joe actually calls him a dog, but he hates being referred to as such.

* Fire Leo from ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'', despite being a lion actually doesn't even look like a lion at all. Joe actually calls him a dog, but he hates being referred to as such. His brother, Frost Tiger, looks more like a tiger than Leo does a lion, but also has a mane and a very similar build and appearance otherwise. This suggests they're actually ligers (or tigons), but neither are accurate to any type of big cat.

* Save the title character and a handful of others (Cream, Vanilla, Vector and Tails, all of whom are more recognizable animals), pretty much none of the anthro characters in ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' actually resemble the animal they're supposed to be.

** Pikachu is said to be a mouse, it looks more like a rabbit with a zigzag tail. Some fans speculate that Pikachu are based off Pika as well, though they look little like them (especially after ArtEvolution slimmed them down).

* Komasan from ''VideoGame/YokaiWatch'' is meant to be a Komainu (lion-dog) and has some Shiba Inu influences but he just comes off as a CuteKitten and if anything looks like a ''panda''.

* Komasan from ''VideoGame/YokaiWatch'' is meant to be a Komainu (lion-dog) and has some Shiba Inu influences but he just comes off as a CuteKitten and if anything looks like a ''panda''. This could be because he is a cub-puppy though, as his older-looking evolution more resembles a lion.



* Krystal from the unreleased UsefulNotes/Nintendo64 ''Dinosaur Planet'' is meant to be a fox however she looks like some sort of big cat instead. When the game was changed to ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' she was redesigned to look more fox-like (and be HotterAndSexier).

* Sash Lilac of ''Videogame/FreedomPlanet'' is supposed to be a dragon, but in actuality looks more like a purple cat-thing. It helps that the game had it's origins as a ''Sonic'' fangame, and still has a similar art style.

* Sash Lilac of ''Videogame/FreedomPlanet'' is supposed to be a dragon, but in actuality looks more like a purple cat-thing. Her horns and very short tail also makes her vaguely resemble a goat. There are a number of pandas in the game too, most of whom are mostly white and would be unrecognizable as pandas if not for the black around their eyes. It helps that the game had it's origins as a ''Sonic'' fangame, and still has a similar art style. It's zig-zagged as far as dragons go, however--other dragons depicted are much more recognizable as dragons than Lilac.
