*''WesternAnimation/KateAndMimMim'' takes place inside a [[MrImagination little girl's imagination]], so it's not surprising that there's a rainbow of different characters. Mim-Mim is purple because that's the color of her stuffed bunny to begin with. Other main characters are pink, blue, brown and orange.

* Semi-justified on ''TheWuzzles'', given that each character was a crossbreed of two different species (although, oddly, each seemed to be the only one of its kind). Some of the color schemes were fairly reasonable for a "zoologically accurate" animated fantasy: "Bumblelion," for instance, was a half-lion, half-bumblebee creature, and had tan lion fur (correct) and brown and yellow bee stripes across his torso (close enough). But then again you had his pal "Rhinokey," who was a rhinoceros-nosed monkey with carnation-pink fur.

* A lot of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' characters fall under this category. Sonic in particular is famous for being a "blue hedgehog" ("The Blue Blur" being his nickname), but there are also pink, black and silver hedgehogs, purple cats, red echidnas, yellow polar bears, green tufted ducks, black armadillos with red shells, purple weasels, green hawks, the list goes on and on.
** Originally, Naoto Ooshima drew him with ''black'' fur, but quickly changed it to blue so it would match the Sega logo.

* Krystal from ''VideoGame/StarFox'' certainly fits under this trope because she's blue, as well as Katt Monroe, who's pink. Marcus [=McCloud=], Fox and Krystal's future son, who appears in one of ''Command'''s possible endings inherits his mother's blue fur color.

* There are some pretty funky ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' examples. True, they're technically not animals, but most are [[IntelligentGerbil based on animals]]. A yellow mouse[[note]]the Pikachu line[[/note]], a blue turtle[[note]]the Squirtle line[[/note]], a yellow and a blue duck/platypus[[note]]the Psyduck line[[/note]]. And that's just the first generation of mons! Yeah, those critters cover the spectrum and back. Most Pokemon tend to be colored based on what sort of [[ElementalPowers type]] they're supposed to represent, and even that isn't a hard rule.
** It also applied to the fictional critters themselves with the shiny Pokémon.

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'''s pet [[EverythingsBetterWithPlatypus platypus]], Perry, is teal-colored with an orange bill. In a recent episode, it seems like ''all'' platypodes (in Danville, at least?) are the same color as theirs.
** According to WordOfGod, most viewers don't know much about the platypus, so they can take artistic license with the species.
