* Requisite Discworld example: In ''Discworld/MakingMoney'', Moist notes that Hubert is one of those names you can automatically put a face to. There might easily be Huberts who are tall and thin, but the Hubert he is introduced to is a good proper Hubert, that is to say, stubby and plump. (He is a bit off-model by having red hair, but it's no great distraction.)

* In one ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}'' comic, the group manages to defeat several opponents (primarily spellcasters) by first having a chat with their tailors. Once they know what theme the customer is going for, figuring out their [[ElementalRockPaperScissors weaknesses]] is a snap.

[[folder:Fan Works]] * ''Fanfic/PokemonMaster'': Subverted with Misty. She is short-tempered, hot-blooded, rash, passionate... and a redhead. However her elemental powers are not associated with fire and heat but with water, ice and cold. [[/folder]]

* The live-action adaptation of ''Discworld/TheColourOfMagic'' initially shows the Unseen University librarian as a man with a thick orange beard, which makes him look surprisingly like an orangutan ''before'' the event that turns him into one.

** The host of the tailed beast in all have some sort of physical traits of the beast. Naruto has the whisker marks on his face (which get bigger as he used the Kyuubi's power), the host of the two-tailed cat has cat-like eyes, Killer Bee has two marks in the shape of ox horns on his left cheek plus a rope belt whose ends stick out behind him like tails, and [[spoiler:Kushina had bright-red hair just like the fox (which on cover even [[ExpressiveHair had sticking up into nine tails when she was angry]])]]. It does not appear these are really cases of RedRightHand as the markings in some cases are shown to be present even before the tailed beast in put insode them, as with Naruto himself.

* Justified in ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}'' with the Returned, people who [[CameBackStrong rise from death]] in new bodies as [[TheAgeless ageless]], prophetic beings and are worshiped as gods. Most get the flawless, seven-foot-tall HeroicBuild that one would expect of a deity, with some variation: [[LoveGoddess Blushweaver]] happily flaunts her MostCommonSuperpower, while the Allmother looks like everyone's favourite granny. [[spoiler:TheOlderImmortal Vasher]] reveals that they look like they think they ''should'' look thanks to a subconscious use of VoluntaryShapeshifting.

* There is a minor side character in the ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma ]]'' manga who cooks okonomiyaki. His face looks like a spatula. Also the Gambling King, who is a professional (though lame) gambler, looks like a king out of a card game, and wears a coat with ''hanafuda'' designs on it. The French Cuisine arc had the governess dressed in 20th century French gown in modern Japan, with her hair tied up to resemble a roast chicken. Although plot-justified (sort of), a Takoyaki chef spent the majority of his life wearing a Octopus mask.

* Himemaru, from the HaremComedy manga ''RappiRangai'', is a ninja who specializes in traps, both setting them up, and immobilizing opponents with ropes. He also has a ''very'' feminine appearance. That is, he's a [[UnsettlingGenderReveal trap]] who works with traps. It seems he was always like that, as he mentioned having "the most beautiful face in [his] village". Even his own father was shocked when he realized how much Himemaru looks like his mother. * Onpu Segawa from Anime/OjamajoDoremi. She is the idol girl and musical themed. Her head has a shape of a Music Note due to the help of her side ponytail. "Onpu" means "musical note".
