This is understandable for animation, as it's a budget saver and makes production go faster. This trope becomes artifactual in other media, specifically comics. Despite the fact this trick is really necessary only in a moving picture medium, a fair number of amateur artists do this, either due to inexperience, [[LazyArtist laziness]], or adherence to the visual trope. This effect can be averted by simply avoiding profile altogether and doing 3/4 points of view instead. When it comes to time savers, some artists will cite preference for this kind of drawing with other short cuts such as the PacMan mouth.

* Any anime and manga are subject to this trope at some point. Due to that, it may be nigh-impossible to list all anime and manga that uses this trope.

* Prominent in a lot of Artix Entertainment games, since their characters are almost always shown from the side, but ''VideoGame/DragonFable'' and ''VideoGame/Mechquest'' are the biggest offenders.
