Added DiffLines:

** The ''Ankylosaurus'' is much smaller and more slender than the real animal, and it also has a dragging tail, spiked osteoderms, and a more subtle tail club.

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* Yooka in ''VideoGame/YookaLaylee'' is supposed to be a chameleon, but aside from his tongue attack and his (obtained later in the game) invisibility move, it's hard to tell. It doesn't help that most characters just call him "lizard."

Added DiffLines:

* Chickens in ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}'' look like oversized yellow chicks with short legs and egg-shaped bodies.

** Tiny Tiger looks like ''some'' kind of big cat, but definitely not a Tasmanian Tiger. Real Tasmanian Tigers had light brown fur, stripes down their lower backs, and straight tails similar to dogs. Tiny is bright orange, has no stripes, and he has a distinctly lion-like tail, with a tuft of fur at the end. ''VideoGame/CrashOfTheTitans'' drastically redesigned him into being a standard Bengal Tiger, and he averts this trope in that game.

* The Buzzy Beetle enemies (which are basically fireproof Koopa Troopas) from the ''SuperMarioBros'' series games actually look more like hunchbacked, gray turtles than actual beetles. In fact, they actually look more like turtles than the Koopa Troopas, which are based on turtles!

* 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.

to:

* ''VideoGame/DinoCrisis'':
** In par of DinosaurMedia, the ''Velociraptor'' look more like oversized, featherless ''Deinonychus''.

** The ''Carnotaurus'' from ''Dino Stalker'' look more like ''T. rex'' with bull horns and four-fingered hands, though at least they have shorter arms.



* If it weren't for the title, you'd have no idea that the little people in blue robes with wild green hair in ''{{VideoGame/Lemmings}}'' were, in fact, Lemmings. As a SeldomSeenSpecies you might even expect actual Lemmings, which are mouse-like animals, to look similar, or even not realize that Lemmings were a type of animal at all.

** The ''Allosaurus'' looks more like some type of 90's inspired dromaeosaur, including being smaller than the real animal. Apparently, its model was originally intended for the Raptor, before the latter got an overhaul and this model was used to represent ''Allosaurus'' instead.
