* Speaking of Naughty Dog: Ellie from ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'' looks a ''lot'' like Creator/EllenPage. The character design has since been modified to look a little younger and better resemble voice actress AshleyJohnson, though the resemblance did not go unnoticed by Page, who said she was "not pleased" at Ellie's close resemblance to her, mainly since [[InkSuitActor her image IS being used]] for the game ''VideoGame/BeyondTwoSouls''.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' ran into some legal trouble by using Music/{{Gackt}} as basis for Squall's design, although Gackt was a fan of the series and appeared in an InkSuitActor capacity as a ''Compilation of VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' character in later games. Creator/TetsuyaNomura has always claimed that Squall was based on Creator/RiverPhoenix. Cid Kramer also has a very strong resemblance to Creator/RobinWilliams.
* Link in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' was based after a famous 90s heartthrob actor... but the developers have purposefully obscured which actor it was, other than that he was 'who you would think of when you thought of a handsome actor at that time'. One of the features taken from the actor was his distinctive, pointed nose, leading many to speculate that River Phoenix, who had a similar pointed nose to the Link art, was the inspiration. Other theories suggest Tom Cruise and Leonardo DiCaprio.
