* When the four horsemen appear in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', they are easily recognized by their appearance. War is slick looking, middle aged mobster type who drives a blood-red muscle car. Famine is an emaciated man who is too weak to walk anywhere, has to be carried every where, relies on a wheelchair and a nasal cannula and is chaufered in a gas-guzzling parade of black SUV. Pestilence is a disheveled, run down older man who sneezes on everything leaving disgusting gobs of mucus and drives a rusted, pea green pinto. Death is a gaunt, but distinguished looking gentleman dressed in a black suit and tie who looks, appropriately, like a mortician and drives a sleek, pale white car from the 50s with a license plate that reads 'bye bye.'

* 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.

* Pikango from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' is a travelling painter who keeps his long white hair tied up in a ponytail with the tip dyed black, making it look like a paintbrush.

* Transformers:
** In ''TransformersAnimated'' Constructicons look remarkably like human construction workers, right down to the hardhats and exposed buttcracks.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Most of the characters of ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'' are birds, but they also have noncanon gijinkas or human forms so they can be drawn as humans sometimes. Most of these have only vague relation to their actual bodies - hair color and feather color rarely matches, eye color is often different, and most of them wear clothes that don't reflect their feather colors and patterns at all. Then there's Tohri Nishikikouji, the [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/hatoful/images/b/b7/HolidayStar.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20120712202701 golden pheasant]], whose [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/hatoful/images/2/29/Screen_shot_2012-08-08_at_12.39.58.png/revision/latest?cb=20120808113933 gijinka]] reflects basically every aspect of his actual form, with all of the disparate elements of a golden pheasant, from tiger-striped nuchal cape to gold-and-red crest to green-and-black scapulars to blue secondaries to brown-and-bronze tailfeathers.

* Webcomic/SlightlyDamned: This trope is [[InvokedTrope invoked]] (or more accurately enforced) by the [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angels]], naturally they look like pale humans with [[PointedEars pointy ears]] and [[MysticalWhiteHair pure white hair]] but have to get their hair dyed the same color as their [[ElementalPowers element]] as well as wear cloths the same color and get the element's symbol tattooed on their upper arm.
**[[OurDemonsAreDifferent Demons]] take it even further by looking completely different depending on their element([[CastOfSnowflakes and even then demons of the same element don't look the same.]])
*** Water demons are about 5ft tall and most (but not all) are amphibian or reptilian in appearance and are [[WaterIsBlue colored blue.]]
*** Fire demons are 6ft tall and typically resemble predatory mammals or reptiles and have colors like [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation red, orange or purple.]]
*** Wind demons are 7ft tall with [[LeanAndMean lanky]] bodies, [[WingedHumanoid wings]] and look like winged mammals, birds or flying reptiles.
*** Earth demons are 12-14ft heavily muscled [[GiantMook giants]] who's appearance invokes large land animals and most have [[RealIsBrown colors you'd find on real animals]] like brown, black, grey or white.

* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'':
** [[Characters/XMenFilmSeriesProfessorCharlesXavier Charles Xavier]]'s outward appearance is intertwined with his psyche across the First Class trilogy. His delicate, baby-face features correlate with his androgynous, starry-eyed mentality. His innate empathy is augmented by his telepathy, which makes him the ultimate Sensitive Guy--you only have to glance at him in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' and ''Film/XMenApocalypse'' to know that this is his most distinctive quality. As for ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', his past self's optimism is shattered, so his scruffiness, which conceals his boyish looks, mirrors his cynicism.
** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': All of the Ancient Egyptian Horsemen resemble their 1983 homologues an awful lot. Death is a fiercely loyal blonde, just like Angel, who inherits her title; Famine is a tall black woman with a mohawk-like haircut, just like the next Famine, Storm; War wears a helmet similar to Magneto's and looks a bit like him; and Pestilence, while being the least similar to his counterpart, shares with Psylocke a penchant for physical combat and the skills for it.
