** The American (at least) boxart for the NES ''VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' platformer also follows this trope, giving all four turtles red masks a la the comic book series.

** The American (at least) boxart for the NES ''VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' platformer also follows this trope, giving all four turtles red masks a la the comic book series. This is because the American and European box art is actually lifted directly from the cover of ''TMNT #4'' (2nd printing), which can be seen in it's full version [[https://c1.staticflickr.com/4/3377/3278465574_cc696e44c6_b.jpg here]]. The original cover features the Turtles fighting the alien Utroms on top of a teleporter and has nothing to do with the plot of the game.

** This trope applies to Son Goku's character and portrayal. In Japanese, Goku (no matter his age) is portrayed as a highly {{adorkable}}, goofy, BookDumb hero voiced by Creator/MasakoNozawa speaking in a young boy's voice and affecting a SimpletonVoice accent, with his ''Dragon Ball'' child incarnation forming the basis of his character. In English dubs, Goku's adult ''DBZ'' incarnation is the basis of his character, and adult Goku is always voiced by adult men speaking with a standard American accent. Earlier dubs portrayed Goku as more of a serious superhero, but he retained his male voice actors even as later dubs would skew more faithful to the Japanese and play up the silly side of his personality.

* ''VideoGame/{{Breath of Fire|I}}'' is a major example of this. Compare the [[http://images.wikia.com/bof/images/5/5d/BofFJapan.png Japanese box art]] with the [[http://images.wikia.com/bof/images/5/57/BOF1boxartt.jpg American version]], featuring JimLee-esque cover art in which Ryu became a Conan impersonator even though he is clearly depicted as a pretty-average built teenager in-game and Nina looked like a man.

* ''Castle of Shikigami'', a bullet-hell game for the [=PS2=] in Japan, is a game about various people teaming up to defeat the villain and save the day by flying through the air and shooting things with various types of laser-like projectiles, and featured cute anime characters on the box art. In ''America'', the game is called ''Mobile Light Force'' and the cover features three leather-clad, gun-toting, large-breasted Charlie's-Angels-esque babes running around and outright lying about the content of the game. ''Castle of Shikigami 2'' did not suffer this treatment, however, it DID suffer from being ''completely'' un-localized despite being translated and voice-acted, with some scenes not being translated or voice-acted in English at all and left with Japanese text and/or dialogue. Despite this, they're not bad games.

* The ''Franchise/WildArms'' series usually either retains the original cover art or replaces it by something that, while different, keeps the tone. Exceptions can be found in the first title ([[http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps/199299-wild-arms/images/box-14330 J]]; [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps/199299-wild-arms/images/box-43279 U]]) and ''VideoGame/WildArms5'' ([[http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps2/931326-wild-arms-5/images/box-72769 J]]; [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps2/931326-wild-arms-5/images/box-72466 U]]).

%% * ''VideoGame/{{Bomberman}}'' for the UsefulNotes/TurboGrafx16--compare [[http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/5966/bomberjapan.jpg this]] to [[http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/9449/bomberman0wq.jpg this]]. Imageshack sucks now and WeblinksAreNotExamples, so these will need to be replaced.

* Inverted with the 20072017 Mitsubishi Lancer in Taiwan, where the derivative Lancer Fortis and iO models used a more sedate fascia in contrast to the aggressive "shark head" front end made infamous by the Lancer Evolution X.
