* ''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 ''LilAbner'' on Jeff Smith.

* If the Duchess of Abrantès is to be trusted, General Antoine Lavalette was a real-life example: while Napoleon's other aides-de-camp tended to be taller and more athletic than the average, he kind of stood out for being short [[note]]An official description issued after his spectacular evasion in 1815 stated that he stood at 1m48[[/note]], with a "promising" belly, a pea-sized nose, huge round cheeks and hair so scarce that each strand had a name.

* ''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]]

* In ''EvenAMonkeyCanDrawManga'', it is "recommended" ([[FauxToGuide all of the "rules" in the work are actually cliches that the authors think shouldn't be done]]) that the shonen hero's comic sidekick be one of these.

* GreenLantern: [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] Green Lantern Alan Scott's frequent companion Doiby Dickles was so much shorter than the ordinarily proportioned villains that he had to jump up to properly place his fists when getting into a brawl.

* ''OhEdoRocket'': Roughly half the main cast stands less than half the height of the remaining cast.
* OsamuTezuka: Leaving aside how he [[AuthorAvatar drew himself]], Tezuka's [[ReusedCharacterDesign star system]] is littered with characters of this sort, especially Professor Ochanomizu and Shunsaku Ban.
