* 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.

** The ''Pachycephalosaurus'' from the original looks more like a ''Prenocephale'' or a ''Stegoceras'' due to having a blunter snout.

** 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.

*** Though to be fair, Lammy does more closely resemble a wild sheep, like a young bighorn. [[https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Big_Horn_Sheep_3.jpg]]

** Sonic and Knuckles' spikes look closer to styled hair, and their short snouts with jellybean-shaped noses look closer to that of WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse than and real hedgehog or echidna, respectively. The same goes for Amy, Shadow, and Silver, all of whom follow the same base design and [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair are an array of bright colors]].

Meanwhile, the idea of them rolling around in a ball comes from a common misconception about hedgehogs: while they do curl up to deter predators, they do not roll around for locomotion.

** While it's hard to mistake Jet the Hawk for anything other than a bird, his green feathers and red markings around his eyes make him look more like a parrot than a hawk, not helped by Jason Griffith playing the character with a nasal voice.
*** This is actually [[FlatCharacter one of]] the reasons that ''Sonic'' characters are so popular with beginner artists: their simple, repetitive designs and ArtisticLisence with animal anatomy are easy to recreate, or even be applied to their own ideas for characters.
