* ''ComicBook/{{Bone}}''. The three Bone cousins are blobby cartoon characters who obey cartoon logic (like Fone Bone's head assuming the shape of a pie when Phoney shoves it into his mouth). Everybody else is drawn in a more realistic, though stylized, fashion. This is due to the influence of classic comic strips like ''ComicStrip/{{Pogo}}'' and ''ComicStrip/LilAbner'' on Jeff Smith.

* In Tetsuya Hasegawa's ''Napoleon'' manga, in stark contrast with the HeroicBuild everyone else sports (including real-life lightweights such as Talleyrand or Masséna), Berthier is depicted as extremely short (admittedly, the real Berthier was short as well, but certainly not two heads shorter than Napoleon) and his facial expressions are even more exaggerated than those of other characters.

** Even Benkei Musashibo, the CompositeCharacter from ''New Getter Robo'', which is quite a feat since '''everyone''' in that series (Benkei included) looks halfway between BadAss and AxCrazy at all times.

* ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'': Many of the characters, including Slick, Semyor, Lil' E, Squig, and Criminy are if somewhat... diminutative stature, but most of the other characters have normal porportions, porportions which even these characters gain when they enter the Reality Zone (Excpet Squig, of course)

* ''Franchise/ProfessorLayton'': the recurring cast and major characters for the game are normal enough, but the random [[NonPlayerCharacter NPCs]] (The ones with the primary purpose of giving puzzles) tend to be much more strangely shaped for the benefit of CastOfSnowflakes. Justifed in Curious Village by [[spoiler:being robots, with the few that aren't odd shaped being based on existing humans]], it doesn't explain the kid sized "explorer" you encounter a few times [[spoiler:as he explicitly is human]]
