* 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).



** Tranquil is said to be a pigeon, and the Pokémon but looks more like a cross between a pheasant and a hawk.

* 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.

** ''Dinosaur Hunter HD'' and ''Reborn'' had ''Gallimimus'' and ''Pelecanimimus'' that both look more like ''Compsognathus''.

** The ''Dimetrodon'' has a smaller head and shorter sail which makes it look more like an ''Edaphosaurus''. Not helped by the fact it has the same animations as the herbivorous ''Moschops''.

*** This is actually [[FlatCharacter one of]] the reasons that ''Sonic'' characters are so popular with beginner artists: their simple, repetitive designs and ArtisticLicense with animal anatomy are easy to recreate, or even be applied to their own ideas for characters.

* The ''Therizinosaurus'' from ''VideoGame/DinoCrisis'' not only look nothing like the real animal, but also small and carnivorous. Then again, it may have been ScienceMarchesOn.
