** An example is seen here with [[http://spore.wikia.com/wiki/Creature:Bellylegs this creation]]. This creature has mouths and faces [[TooManyMouths all over its body]] ([[AHeadatEachEnd tail]], belly, legs, etc...), including on its belly. Although the belly faces could have been once considered a [[BellyMouth Belly Mouth]], the [[TinyHeadedBehemoth small human head]] was [[LosingYourHead crushed]] by ''[[OrganAutonomy the feet]]'', making these belly faces the highest faces on the body, therefore a face that was once located on the belly was now the creature’s head. However, after some time the creature could be considered a Belly Mouth again since faces formed on its **belly mouth’s belly**.

** Exceptions: Mr Snow and Mr Dizzy both have an "8" shape with a distinct head and body, as does Honk, a sort of seal. Mr Greedy's bulging tummy similarly makes it clear where his head is. Less certain examples are Mr Skinny, Mr Busy, Mr Mean and Little Miss Neat, whose faces are in the top halves of their ovular/rectangular bodies (see the above comment about "just a thick neck").
