Of note is Jubilee (she went from cropped to shoulder length hair and apparently ditched the glasses), Magneto (who also gained longer hair) and Jean Grey (whose design in-costume matched how she looked in the comics - the cartoons gave her a ponytail that stuck out the back of her "mask" until those final episodes, where she finally had the whole thing come out from the top.

* What dobaby Yoshi look like in ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros''? In some games (such as ''VideoGame/YoshisStory'' and ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'') hatchings are just smaller Yoshi however in other games (such as ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' and ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU'') they are more squished and UglyCute looking.

** ''Videogame/FireEmblemGaiden:'' The official art for the game is ''extremely'' inconsistent, with characters having different hair and eye colors depending on the piece of art, and a lot of the time an in-game sprite and portrait is completely different from the artwork. One especially egregious example: One of the two protagonists of the game, Alm, has green hair on the game's box art, but his in-game sprite and portrait have ''blue'' hair. The remake ''Shadows of Valentia,'' released two and a half decades later, rectified all of this, along with a huge dose of ArtEvolution and AdaptationalAttractiveness.[[note]]Alm's hair is officially ''green'', as it seems.[[/note]]

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'':
** Invoked in the DLC when Chrom asks why the Marth in one chapter looks completely different from the previous one: as a figure of legend, Marth has a been depicted and reimagined many times.
** A straighter example: nobody seems to be able to make up their minds about what color the default Avatar's hair is. White? Silver? Pale blonde? You'll see all three in official materials with little rhyme or reason.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'':
** Just like ''Awakening's'' Avatar, this one's hair color is tricky. On their official art it's white, in-game it looks more platinum blonde, in ''Smash'' it's this weird pale beige.
** Is Azura's bust small, as her portrait suggests, or does she just have a HiddenBuxom, as her official art and the various art for the ''Cipher'' card game suggest? And if so, how much?

* DependingOnTheArtist/ComicBooks

[[folder:Comic Books]]
!!!DC
* In the DCU series ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'', every issue had pencil layouts done by one artist, Keith Giffen, in order to keep this trope to a minimum. However, there were still a few minor slip-ups, the clearest example being Renee Montoya and Kate Kane. They were well-endowed but realistic when they first spoke to one another (They were still ''gorgeous'', but it was manageable), but when they met in the park in the next issue they were both [[MostCommonSuperpower bulging out of their tops]]. The commentaries usually passed it off as exactly this trope, and not a deliberate [[{{Fanservice}} attempt to titillate readers]].
* In ''Comicbook/ArkhamAsylumASeriousHouseOnSeriousEarth'', which predated Doctor Destiny's ''Sandman'' appearance, Creator/GrantMorrison and DaveMcKean made him similar to Kieth's depiction but they also had him in a wheelchair. The appearance Destiny has outside of ''Arkham Asylum'' and ''Sandman''? Despite Destiny predating [[Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse Skeletor]], you can be forgiven for easily getting the two mixed-up the majority of the time.
* ''Franchise/{{Batman}}''
** The length of the ears on his mask is never, ever consistent. Ever. You would not believe the disparity here.
** There are lots of variables in Batman's costume: the color (gray vs. black vs. grayish blue, blue highlights or no), eyes (full white vs. actual eyes), and are just a few. Some are cyclical features (especially the colors), while others are done to match media portrayals (the all-black 90s costume is intended to match the Burton films). Plus, certain artists give him specific features: Howard Porter's Batman has elaborate "hooks" on the shoulders, for instance. The chest symbol (yellow oval with a bat in it vs. none vs. black bat silhouette on an otherwise solid-gray chestplate) is explicitly a separate costume item.
** The storage system his belt uses (cloth pouches vs. rigid capsules vs. both), the fastening of his cape (under the neck vs. at the shoulders), the fins on his gloves (the length, shape and number of them vary wildly), how much of his face is revealed (The Dark Knight batsuit has a noticeably smaller opening, while Dick Sprang's drawings will have the entire lower half of his face showing), his size (ranging from a fairly normal height and build to the 7-foot-plus that was Frank Miller's Batman in ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns''), whether or not he has stubble, whether or not his fingertips have "claws" (fairly uncommon, but not unheard of), the length and shape of his briefs (range from nigh-thong to short shorts), whether or not the bat-briefs are separate from his tights or sewn on, the shape of his cape (ranging from an even bat-wing pattern to a tattered and torn look), how much of his facial expression shows through the mask, the shape of the eyes (occasionally look like triangular slits, seen in Year One and The Animated Series) and the exact structure of his boots (whether they're smooth and tight like the rest of his costume or bulky and thick like combat boots). Batman truly is the most versatile superhero, visually, due to the large amount of detailing on his costume and the simple motif.
** The length of his cape is also inconsistent. A book on how to draw DC characters admits that this can sometimes be intentional; in an issue where he is going to be doing a lot of fighting, it is fairly short and moves easily to make his movements look smooth and dynamic. If however he is going to be standing around or posing on rooftops it is much longer and heavier, often long enough that it would drag on the floor without the dramatic wind.
** Behind the scenes of some film versions it has been noted that there are several capes of several shapes and lengths depending on what looked best in any given shot. In other words, to make it look right, DOTA is so necessary that you have to ''replicate DOTA for the LiveActionAdaptation.''
** Then there's how much of his costume is "armor". Sometimes it looks like traditional superhero tights, other times there seem to be interlocking plates, and more rigid sections. Sometimes the armor is worn under the tights. Kevlar is canonically an important feature of his costume (especially around the chest), but plenty of times he has been seen removing his "shirt", with no evidence of any armor underneath or within it.
** Gotham City itself varies a lot on the artist. It's managed to look like New York, Chicago, Detroit, Budapest, etc. Sometimes it's a realistic looking city, sometimes it's a stylized city, sometimes it's just flat-out dark fantasy. That's not even getting into its GeographicFlexibility and [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield location...]]
** Arkham Asylum seems to change design and ''location'' depending on what era, artist, and book you're reading. One of the biggest lampshadings about this is during Comicbook/AnimalMan, when Buddy sees almost '''five''' buildings in the same place, all looking radically different.
** ComicBook/BatMite's ChestInsignia can be a misshapen bat-insignia, a lightning bolt or an M (likely the first one was the original idea).
** One thing that has never remained consistent ever is Thomas and Martha Wayne's gravesite that Batman visits every other week. It regularly switches between being a tomb and a grave, or possibly two graves, having an angel on it, and/or placed near a tree. Even the way the names are displayed changes, it could be their individual names or just their last name, and there might be an epitaph.
* Both incarnations of ''ComicBook/{{Batwoman}}'' were subjected to many artistic variations:
** Kathy Kane's bodysuit was either a solid yellow, yellow with black trim in the front (with the top mimicking a bustier), or the darker trim depicted as yellow with black shading. The last option was presumably to make the darker part appear as a stylized gold, with the limitations of printing at the time. Her mask shifted between being colored red, yellow, or black with yellow or red trim at the top. In her short-lived return in the '70s, her batsuit gained a red bat symbol and her gloves suddenly became fur-trimmed.
** The Kate Kane version of Batwoman started out with light auburn-red hair in 52, although her later appearances have her hair as a very saturated cherry red color (as well as her wig). Her eyes were also originally colored brown, but ever since her arc in Detective Comics and the ''Batwoman'' series, they have appeared as [[SignificantGreenEyedRedhead a bright green]]. Her skintone was also lightened considerably to be a "vampire porcelain white" by JH Williams, which has stuck for all later depictions.
*** Her costume was originally colored with blue highlights, though it has since been depicted as a straight black. Sometimes her mask will cover her forehead, while other times it will leave it exposed. Her gauntlets are alternatively drawn as being separate from her gloves (as with Williams' intention) or as a solid part of them.
*** Kate's stepmother [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Catherine/Katherine]] was also shown to be a blonde in a cameo in 52, while her appearances in the Batwoman series depict her with brown hair.
** Batwoman's sidekick Bat-Girl had her dress length range from being past the knee, to it being much shorter and its skirt either being full or flat. Her mask also alternated between being red or black, and her gloves would tend to come and go.
* [[ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} Dick Grayson]]:
** In the New 52, artists seemingly can't decide what his hairstyle actually ''is'', which is especially bad since the hair is the only way to differentiate the Bat-boys. At first, in ''Batman''. it was spiky and at a decent length. At the same time in his own ''Nightwing'' series, it was just long. Then it became an overgrown undercut in ''Nightwing'' while ''Batman and Robin'' kept the ''previous'' look ''Nightwing'' had established [[note]]You can't even say ''Batman and Robin'' took place after the change in ''Nightwing'', because his B&R appearance is explicitly shown to be ''after'' his hair changed in his own solo series[[/note]]. Finally, by the time of ComicBook/{{Grayson}}, it's consistent.
** His Batman suit. Was it black or a dark blue? Once Bruce came back, some artists made it so Dick's ears were shorter (they were originally as long as Bruce's, but he ''launched'' them... yeah), and his suit was a darker blue in comparison to Bruce's all-black suit (at this point, Bruce's suit actually became consistent). There was also some effort to have his height be consistent comparison to certain characters, such as Superman and Donna Troy. I.e, Batman is shown to be about equal in height to Clark and taller than Donna, while Dick is noticeably shorter than Clark and about the same as Donna.
** What did he wear as Robin: His signature shorts or pants more like future Robin's? It varies depending on the flashback and medium.
* [[ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws Jason Todd]]:
** Red Hood's... hood. Within its own series it's inconsistent, never mind the other Bat books. Is it metal or clothe? Does it have a mouth or an Iron Man-esque pseudo-mouth? Does it have anything resembling a mouth at all? Are the eyes whited out or not? Is there a mask-looking paint job around the eyes? In the New 52, it has never, ''ever'' been consistent.
** Jason's eyes are either blue or green. And not as in they became green after he died, as in, since coming back, he has had both eye colours.
* Damian Wayne ([[ComicBook/{{Robin}} Robin V]]) had been getting a lot of this, to where some of his fans debate on who draws the best version. His height and build stay similar, but other things aren't as consistent such as:
** His skin tone can be as pale as most of the other members of the Bat-Family, or darker if the artist remembers he has Middle Eastern heritage through Talia. Sometimes he even looks a bit Asian, but the Asian facial features aren't uncalled for because Talia's mother was half-Chinese as well.
** Eye shape varies wildly, as does what shade of blue (most of them are darker shades lately).
** The shape of his face widely varies, from sharp and chiseled like his dad to being rather round and babyish to even scrunched up due to his PerpetualFrowner tendencies.
** How spiky his hair is and how many blue undertones it has (in the first 6 issues of Batman and Robin it was stright black or only had a few blue bits due to lighting, but in issues 10-12 it was almost completely blue no matter what the lighting).
** The size of his mask changes at times, from small to DEAR GOD IT'S EATING HIS FACE!
* [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl}} Barbara]] [[ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey Gordon]]:
** Barbara has had an infinite variety of glasses between appearances in different books.
** She also has a wide variety of wheelchairs. Some artists remember she's extremely independent and still a practicing martial artist, and give her a chair that reflects that (low sides so she's got room to turn, no handles at the back). Others just draw a generic wheelchair.
** Does Babs have green eyes or blue eyes? It's rarely consistent, though most colorists have her as blue eyed.
* Barbara's successor Cassandra Cain suffers from a HUGE version of this. Her height seems to vary from average to absolutely minuscule, and she's either incredibly muscular or thin and waifish. And that's not getting into the question of her eyes. Realistically, being half-Chinese, she would have brown eyes, and many artists follow that, giving her dark brown eyes. However, she is also often shown with green, amber, and occasionally even blue eyes. The nature of her scars also changes, with some artists depicting her as being CoveredWithScars, and others showing her completely free of them, and others somewhere in-between.
* Characters/BatmanRoguesGallery:
** The Penguin's appearance can vary wildly from issue to issue. How obese and grotesquely deformed he is can never be made consistent. Sometimes he is a squat spherical creature with a two foot nose and sharp piranha teeth, and sometimes he just looks like a perfectly ordinary mildly chubby man in a suit.
** ComicBook/TheJoker ain't far behind. Originally, he was a relatively normal-looking man, with his skin and hair color (white and green, respectively) being the only things to make him stand out. Since then, artists such as Jim Aparo and Neal Adams have portrayed him as being extremely tall and thin, with a ThinChinOfSin (probably to contrast with Batman's LanternJawOfJustice). People such as Marshall Rogers, on the other hand, portray him with a more squarish chin; Rogers also believed the character was physically incapable of not smiling. And let's not even get into Jim Lee's... highly controversial design.
*** The Joker sometimes is drawn as though he were wearing makeup as well, even though his appearance is canonically the result of a chemical accident. In ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightReturns'' he permanently has the pale skin and green hair, but he enhances his lips with lipstick that is somehow poisonous to everyone else but not him. Oh, and does he [[DepravedBisexual give it a workout]].
** Mr. Zsasz is sometimes lean and muscular and has a buzz cut hair style like Music/HenryRollins with crazy eyes, and other times he's scrawny and looks like a balding, emaciated, meth addict with vacant eyes. Artist Cliff Chiang also gives him a standard skinhead appearance for some reason, with a white tank top, suspenders, Doc Martens boots and a shaved head (though the last of these is hardly unusual for Zsasz).
** Nobody can decide whether Killer Croc is a big strong guy with a skin condition or a crocodile man anymore. It's 50/50 that he'll be depicted either way.
*** Despite the company using the same designs for characters. Killer Croc looks different than to how he was drawn in Batman #1 just a few months before he appeared in ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws''. The design for Mr Freeze by the book's artist also appears different from how he looks on the Batman Annual cover, though the version that appeared in ''[=RHatO=]'' seems to have been adopted as the official one now.
*** Similarly, Marvel's Tiger Shark keeps alternating between costumed guy with shark powers and more shark than man because people don't care enough to keep track of what he's supposed to look like. Frankly, it's amazing that people ever remembered something like the Beast becoming a blue gorilla; You can be sure that if something like that happened now, it would never last.
*** In some cases, where the character's powers are the result of deliberate alterations to their body (Tiger Shark's powers were caused by experimentation, Killer Croc started as a "natural" genetic mutation but was later artificially enhanced), cases have been made that the character's biology is in flux, with their natural/original genetics and the altered state each struggling for dominance. In Tiger Shark's case, after his powers were enhanced to the point of appearing to be a man/shark hybrid, there actually was a distinct progression in later published appearances where his human features seemed to be slowly re-asserting themselves.
** ComicBook/{{Bane}}'s mask varies between luchadore and S&M. Also, does it only have eyeholes or have an opening for his mouth and/or nose? If it has an opening, is it zippered?
** ComicBook/PoisonIvy's skin tone ranges from standard Caucasian, to slightly olive, to bright green, to white as snow depending on who's designing her each time. For some reason Jim Lee draws her ''without toes'', making her look rather like a green painted Barbie doll. Ivy's degree of stripperificness varies a LOT; one issue it's the traditional green leotard, the next it's a bikini made of leaves, the next it's nothing but a few vines covering her naughty bits...
** Similarly, you're lucky if ComicBook/TwoFace's skin color and hair on his damaged side are consistent throughout a single arc. Even on his ''undamaged'' side, he can look like a completely different person. The color of each side of his suit is also rarely the same.
** ComicBook/TheRiddler started in a wacky green body-suit, until the actor playing him in the old [[Series/{{Batman}} Adam West series]] decided he hated it and made his own costume, which came to be the standard depiction: a nice suit with a bowler hat and a question-mark on the tie. That's more-or-less his Franchise/{{DCAU}} depiction to this day, (except in ''Knight Time'') although he often looks a lot like Art Carney. But back in the comics, compare the Riddler in ''ComicBook/TheLongHalloween'' -- a lanky old guy in a loose suit -- to the ''ComicBook/{{Joker}}'' miniseries by the guy who did "100 Bullets": the Riddler looks like a young, club-footed pimp with Elton John glasses. In ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries The New Batman Adventures]]'', on the other hand, he wears the body-suit again, but in a lighter color and with only one large question mark, rather than many small ones.
** Scarecrow. Dare to compare the versions where his head/mask is just as thin as the rest of him with the versions where his head/mask is oddly bulbous and probably the roundest part of his body. And then there's the debate about whether or not his mask is even supposed to have any eye and/or mouth-holes... and the oddly popular "noose necktie". And that's just when he's in the mask. When it's off, these questions arise -- is Crane's hair blond, brown or red? Also, is he simply an average-looking guy or "dear God keep the mask on Scarecrow"? And exactly how old is he? (The last probably overlaps with [[DependingOnTheWriter other factors]].)
** Additionally, ComicBook/RasAlGhul is usually an Arab, but sometimes appears more European.
** The Mad Hatter has it as bad as Killer Croc. Artists have drawn him to be average looking to John Tenniel's illustrations. He has had brown, blonde, white, black, and red hair. His height is highly variable as much as The Penguin's. But artists of today have been drawing Tetch with an overbite and red hair, but his height still ranges from Wolverine short to dwarf.
** The, eh, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin black mask]] of the Batman villain Black Mask either looks like a frowning gargoyle or a skull. This is particularly interesting in Catwoman 13 where he appears as the Gargoyle variant at the end of that issue, but in the next is skull faced [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/2750230.html without explanation]]. But everything varies; are his eyes fully visible, or just white spaces in the mask; is it permanently set, or can it make [[ExpressiveMask a surprisingly varied number of expressions]]?
* Bizarro: Is his skin crystal-like, or just gray? Or white? Is his costume the same colors as Superman's, or does it have a slightly skewed color scheme?
* While the amount of cleavage shown in a superheroine's costume is always a variable, one character that tends to get hit very hard with it is [[ComicBook/WonderGirl Donna Troy]] whose cleavage varies from modest to [[AbsoluteCleavage absolute]] from artist to artist.
* ''ComicBook/TheFlash'':
** Similarly, the lightning bolt earpieces on the side of the Flash's head are more or less prominent depending on who's drawing him. They're either thunderbolts (usually Wally, almost always Bart), Hermes wings (usually Barry, ''always'' Jay, as he wears a [[NiceHat helmet]]) or T-shaped earpieces (seems to be a Scott Kolins quirk).
** Speaking of the Flash, how Bart Allen's hair is drawn [[http://community.livejournal.com/heartbart/13117.html also fluctuates wildly]]. As Impulse, it's generally big and bushy; as Kid Flash, his hair is shorter. Sometimes it's depicted as brown, sometimes it's red. Bart was also slightly taller and a bit more muscular when he first appeared in the ''Flash'' title, and his hair was loose and shoulder-length. Later artists depicted him younger and with shorter hair, until it evolved into that large bushy style. His body also became more gangly, and Humberto Ramos popularized the "huge hands, huge feet" look which stuck with the character up until other artists drew him less stylized as Kid Flash. Bart's eyes were also usually yellow, but later colorists would slip up and give him brown, or even green (like Wally West).
** Wally West's hair colour is either full-on red, orange, strawberry blonde, or just outright blonde (like Barry Allen) depending on who's drawing him. Similarly, is eyes are canonically green, and are depicted as much usually, but he's also frequently drawn with ''blue'' eyes, again just like Barry. His costume varies as well. The one consistent thing (once he changed it), is that his belt is pointed downwards towards his crotch, rather than the completely horizontal lightning belt that Barry Allen used. Sometimes the eyes are whited out, sometimes they aren't. Sometimes his costume is a darker red than Barry Allen's, sometimes it's just as bright. Sometimes there's a yellow circle around his symbol, sometimes there's not. There's kind of an in-universe reason for this, in that Wally eventually learned to materialise the costume around himself and alter its look, but at times, that can't apply and the artists just choose whichever look they prefer.
* Another notorious entry for AmbiguouslyBrown; ComicBook/GreenArrow II, Connor Hawke. He's supposed to be 1/2 white, 1/4 African-American and 1/4 Korean. Good luck finding an artist who can draw it.
* ComicBook/GreenLantern: The four Human Lanterns' eye colours. Are they green because of the rings, naturally green, or not green at all?
* For ''ComicBook/HawkAndDove'', Hank Hall/Hawk's build has varied from being simply brawny to full-on Liefeldian beefiness (it doesn't help that the '80s mini-series was drawn by Liefeld to start with).
** Artists also waver between showing Hawk and Dove's eyes through their costumes or doing a full-on Batman effect with whiting out their eyes.
** Dawn Granger/Dove II started out as an average-height girl who would magically grow to become taller as Dove, while her shorter blonde hair would change to become long and white. In recent years, artists often forget this and portray her height as being the same in both forms and her hair winds up often being colored white in civilian mode too.
** Holly Granger/Hawk II: A shorter woman with an average-sized chest or a practical Amazon with large breasts? Was her hair super short, shoulder-length, or was it down past her waist? Her hair color was another variable: Originally Geoff Johns and Mike [=McKone=] considered her as a blonde, but changed their minds and had her with pinkish-red hair in her debut (though the colorist forgot to recolor her hair in one panel, leaving her as a blonde). Johns' official profile for her in a ''Secret Files'' issue then stated that she had brown hair, yet his draft for the first ''One Year Later'' Teen Titans issue described her as a redhead. In her sporadic appearances during her tenure as Hawk, colorists seemed to shift between all three of those colors for her hair, sometimes even in the same event (''World War III'').
* The extent of ComicBook/JonahHex's scarring varies greatly between artists. He's always got the mouth-string, bug-eye and perma-sneer, but some artists draw him with only those, most artists add some burn scars (TheMovie seems to have gone this route) and some artists take it UpToEleven and turn him into Two-Face in a cowboy hat.
* ''ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica'' features a couple. Cyclone's costume is pretty hard to draw, so various artists raise or lower the slit on the side (or remove it entirely), alter the amount of strips on the leggings, change the size or colour of her emblem, and change how baggy or large the overhanging pouch is.
* ComicBook/LexLuthor: While everyone manages to get the "bald" aspect down, the guy's body structure ranges from emaciated to Kingpin-esque levels of girth. And on rare occasions, he's almost as [[HeroicBuild jacked]] as Superman!
** Fun fact: in his first couple of appearances, he was indeed depicted with a full head of red hair. So not even the bald aspect is safe!
** This sudden shift was parodied in ''ComicBook/{{Supreme}}'' by Original Dax, the first incarnation of Lex Luthor CaptainErsatz Darius Dax to be revised and sent to the Daxia. He remarks with bewilderment that as more Daxes showed up, he notices all of them have hair and no beard, unlike him; he theorizes that some kind of higher power just decided it was better that way.
** Luthor's bout with obesity was not an art inconsistency. John Byrne re-imagined the character as a CorruptCorporateExecutive in 1986. Luthor stayed fat until 1991, when he [[FakingTheDead faked his death and came back in a healthy clone body]]. He pretty much stayed that way since.
** Pre-ComicBook/{{Crisis|on Infinite Earths}}, there was no mystery to it. Dude got himself in shape. Granted that continuity-loving writer E. Nelson Bridwell was probably the only one to bother lampshading it, but he did. Then the [[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths Crisis]] came, and JohnByrne made him fat again. Eventually, Grant Morrison's reboot had a chunky Lex at the beginning of Supes's career, before Luthor is driven to a physical perfection regime by his inferiority complex.
** During ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'', Jon Bogdanove drew Lex Luthor Jr. with an enormous perm, while his hair style was more subdued under the other artists.
* Karate Kid from the ''Comicbook/LegionOfSuperheroes'' has a complicated history of this, since he was introduced as a curly-haired MightyWhitey before being {{Retcon}}ned [[RaceLift into possessing Japanese heritage]]. Sometimes he looks like a teenage Creator/BruceLee, while other times he looks like a generic white dude.
* In ''The Lightning Saga'', a Justice League and Justice Society crossover, the third Wildcat suffered heavily from this trope. When drawn by the JSA artist his musculature was defined but lean, especially when compared to the body of the first Wildcat (his father and a heavyweight boxing champion). But whenever the JLA artist drew him he would suddenly have huge muscles that easily rivaled or even surpassed his father's. This actually becomes kind of funny when reading the trade paper back, since the artists alternated on chapters and make it look like Wildcat II is constantly expanding and contracting.
* Lobo, at least before Simon Bisley's despiction of him, had his hair and black facial marks (specially those on the side of his mouth and chin) vary a lot.
* Everyone is agreed that the ComicBook/MartianManhunter has red eyes, but their appearance varies depending on the artist. Most of the time they are pure red, with no iris, pupil or 'whites'. Sometimes they have these structures, but colored in subtly different shades of red. Very rarely they will look like human eyes, but with red irises. This variation can be explained by the fact that J'onn is a shapeshifter, which lets the artist off the hook.
* ComicBook/PowerGirl shares She-Hulk's "varying musculature" issues; Alex Ross drew her as fairly muscular (but still curvy) in ComicBook/KingdomCome, and it seems that's been either downplayed or exaggerated ([[ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis I'm looking at YOU, Jimenez!]]) by most every artist since then. Her [[MostCommonSuperpower famous boobs]] also vary a bit; she's always at least a DD, but some artists go bigger. This can be applied to most any superheroine, though.
** PG in the white and gold outfit of the early 1990s was slim, athletic and of average height, sometimes. Recall Wally Wood originally drew her short (about 5'), zaftig and narrow-waisted.
** Another big variant is the size and shape of her boob window, which comes in a variety of sizes and is either round, square or shield-shaped.
* The original penciller for ''Comicbook/TheSandman'', Sam Kieth, depicted Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}} villain Doctor Destiny as completely bald and with horribly rotting, seemingly dripping skin. When Mike Dringenberg took over pencilling duties, Doctor Destiny acquired side hair and lost the rotting skin.
* Sinestro's skin; Purple? Reddish? Magenta? Pink? DOTA. And to a lesser extent, whether or not his ears are pointed.
** Not just his ears either, but also the shape of his head. Some artists (and animators) give him a normal "human"-shaped cranium, others endow him with an exceptionally tall forehead (like a less-extreme version of Hulk villain The Leader) that goes straight up, while others still depict more bulbous proportions, with a subtle outwards flare. His resulting hairstyle varies as well, from nondescript short hair, to a pronounced [[VillainousWidowsPeak widow's peak]], or even a flattop (in ''Emerald Dawn II''). From the advent of forming his own Sinestro Corps he's been sporting a much shorter hairstyle with a shaved undercut befitting his "fascist" look (note the Naziesque armband), to which most artists have since adhered.
*** Curiously enough though, other Korugarians are almost never drawn with non-human ears or cranial shapes, including his direct blood relatives.
** Although fellow Korogarian ([[spoiler:and Sinestro's daughter]]) Soranik Natu ''usually'' stays a pretty steady shade of pinkish-purple. This is probably because she (a) hasn't been around nearly as long and (b) only really appears in the GreenLantern books.
** Does Larfleeze look more like a pig, more like a horse, or even a Baphomet-like demon?
** Does G'nort look like an anthropomorphic dog, or Barf from ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}''? Likewise, does Ch'p look like a realistic chipmunk or something out of a kid's cartoon?
* Stephanie Brown's Spoiler costume went through various artistic interpretations over the years. Tom Lyle originally drew her with a large piece of shoulder armor that was attached to her chest sash, though it was phased out by later artists. Her boots and gloves would sometimes have armored bands worn on top of them, while other appearances would lack these. The size of her belt and the amount of canisters in it also varied, along with the length and style of her boots (sometimes they'd be the same length and style, sometimes asymmetrical). Her bodysuit and cloak ranged from being colored a deep purple ("eggplant") to nearly being more of a magenta shade or reddish-violet, while the "undies" worn on top would come and go as artists pleased. The mask and leather parts of her costume were either colored black with blue highlights, or a solid blue or black. The size of the lenses on her mask also varied from being small to [[ExpressiveMask huge and expressive]].
** As Robin, artists couldn't decide whether her hair spiked out, or if it was a little more subdued. She sometimes was also depicted wearing green elbow pads, and while most drew her wearing a red minidress as part of the costume, Pete Woods opted to draw a more unisex costume that resembled a slightly more armored version of Tim Drake's and that had gold thigh bands. As well, she seemed to be a bit more... [[MostCommonSuperpower pronounced]] during this time.
** Her Batgirl costume alternated between being colored black with purple trim, or being a deep purple with lighter side trim. The amount of pouches on her thigh band also varied from artist to artist, while her boots could either be colored black, dark purple, or a lighter purple.
** Stephanie's mother's appearance was subject to many different depictions whenever she showed up. She's been drawn as either middle-aged, slightly younger, as a blonde or brunette, either with a slimmer body or heavyset, and with or without glasses. However, the weight changes could be justified as her having been on and off drugs (which can be TruthInTelevision).
* Odds are you don't know that Comicbook/{{Superman}} traditionally has another S symbol on the back of his cape. This is because most artists (except in his own series -- usually) either simply forget about that or honestly think it's unnecessary.
** Similarly, the S-symbol on the front is either a small emblem on his chest or large enough to cover his entire torso.
** It was especially bad the first 15 years of his existence when the artists could hardly agree on any details of his costume beyond the basic cape and tights with an S on the chest. The original chest emblem was a triangle with a simple bold 's' and his boots were laced up "sandals." You can even see some early merchandise where his tights are yellow instead of blue.
** The biggest variable in modern depictions is his musculature which fluctuates from a lean runners' build up to Olympic bodybuilder. Really, most male heroes go through some of this.
* ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'':
** While starting out as a simply green-skinned human for most of the series, later artists tried to emphasize the "beast" in Beast Boy's name. Mike [=McKone=] started by giving him pointed ears and fangs (as an homage to the animated Titans), while artists following him would depict Gar with huge sideburns, a wider jaw, claw-like fingers and toes, and often let him go barefoot. Some artists also liked depicting him with copious body hair, while others left the detail out.
** As originally drawn by George Perez, ComicBook/{{Raven}}'s face was rounder and softer-featured. As he continued to draw her, he decided to make her appearance stand out from the other two women on the team. She wound up developing a more narrow face with visible cheekbones, larger lips, and a rather high forehead. These changes were [[LampshadeHanging later noticed]] in "ComicBook/TheTerrorOfTrigon" arc. After Perez left the series, Eduardo Barretto gave Raven a look more akin to Perez's original style, though later artists would give her back her narrow features.
*** After her resurrection in TT volume 3, she appeared as a younger teenage girl, though fans of her classic appearance decried some artists' choice in giving her larger breasts as a way of making her sexier. The "new" Raven also seemed to alternate between looking in her mid-late teens to looking a little closer to her '20s.
*** The second version of "Evil Raven" in the '90s also had her appearance shift about a lot. Did she have antlers like her father? Was her skin red or simply a deep tan? Did she have four eyes or two? A gray streak in her hair or not? The extent of just ''how'' revealing her clothes were was yet another of these many variables.
*** Raven's first dress and cloak were later mentioned in dialogue to be "black", after she made the switch to her white outfit. Yet in actuality, the dress and cloak were depicted as blue, possibly to save on black ink and as a stylization choice. Most modern depictions of Raven keep the outfit blue, although in a darker shade (though a pin-up for the volume 3 "Secret Files" depicted her dress as a violet-highlighted black).
** ComicBook/{{Starfire}}'s hair started out [[EightiesHair infamously huge]] and red, while her eye shape was more on the rounded side. Certain artists past volume 3 would sometimes give her narrow eyes and portray her hair much straighter, and colorists would occasionally give it more of an orange or brown hue. Her flaming hair-trail changed from looking more like an extension of her own hair, to actual bursts of fire. Her skin has appeared either more on the golden side, or more saturated of an orange tone.
** Rose Wilson's eyes have shifted between being green and blue, depending on the colorist (back when she had both eyes). She's also supposed to be part-Cambodian (at least in pre-Flashpoint continuity), but she's often drawn a bit too Caucasian-featured for some of her fans' comfort.
** Miss Martian alternated between being a smaller-built girl with average bust size, and at times having a much larger chest. Colorists also couldn't decide whether her eyes were green or magenta, and the style of her boots and gloves were subject to change.
** [[http://redtha.tumblr.com/post/51514730620/pantha-unmasked The '90s Titan Pantha]] had her unmasked face subject to much variation. Some artists preferred giving her a more animalistic look, with a snubbed, snout-like nose and pointed earlobes. Other later interpretations showed her with a more human face, with her simply having irises like a cat. The color of her sclerae and irises were also never consistent.
* ComicBook/{{Vixen}} from the [[Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League]] has an odd one in how her powers are presented; she has the ability to take on the abilities of any animal, but DOTA, there may or may not be an aura looking like said animal around her when she does it.
* ''ComicBook/WonderWoman'':
** Her costume's Stripperificness depends on who's drawing her today, particularly her shorts. This doesn't only apply to formal costume changes -- it also happens in comics supposedly taking place at about the same time.
** Her nemesis Cheetah also varies on whether she actually has fur or just a cheetah pattern on her skin. Also in just how bestial she looks; she may be a sexy catgirl, a snarling, spitting were-beast or somewhere in between.
** Her friend Etta Candy started out as significantly overweight yet tall in her debut, and had blonde hair. Her height soon shrunk through her Golden Age appearances, to where she usually was seen as short and fat, and with ''red'' hair. In the Holliday Girls' brief return in the '60s, her weight was somewhat reduced and her uniform was changed to have a modest skirt instead of short shorts. Later portrayals of Etta (pre-New 52) depicted her as a taller woman, either actually a bit overweight or simply HollywoodPudgy (and [[DependingOnTheWriter either confident or insecure over her looks in comparison to her idol's]]). After Flashpoint, she's since undergone a RaceLift and become much more slender.
*** Her Post-Crisis hair color had alternated between being brown, red or blonde, along with the varying depictions of her weight and her eye color (which could be either blue, green or brown). In George Perez's run, her weight changes were an addressed plot point, while depictions afterward were up to the artists. The artists during Gail Simone's run tended to favor a tall, curvy, blonde-haired Etta, while the Etta in the ''Flashpoint'' tie-in issues was red-haired and pudgy.
*** One notable inconsistency was Grant Morrison depicting Etta as a morbidly obese, middle-aged woman with graying hair in his "Seven Soldiers" series, while the Wonder Woman title had depicted her less heavy and with red hair.
** Her nose is inconsistent. ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', the ''WesternAnimation/WonderWoman'' movie, and more than a few comic book artists give her a large, 'Greek' nose while others favor a smaller nose.
** Does Wonder Woman have straight hair or wavy hair? If the latter, just ''how'' wavy is her hair?
* Artemis Crock's (Tigress') hair changes shades often. It has been various shades of blonde and even light brown.
* In ''ComicBook/SandmanMysteryTheatre'', most artists draw Wesley Dodds as [[StoutStrength thickset and even a bit flabby]], as part of the comic's general anti-romantic TwoFistedTales approach to vigilanteism. Some, however, can't resist making him more conventionally trim.
* ComicBook/{{Etrigan}}'s height, facial features, and outfit vary wildly. Most artists draw him medium height with a mostly humanoid face and a PrimalStance, but when he guides Dream through Hell in ComicBook/TheSandman he barely reaches Dream's shoulder and has an elongated reptilian snout, and in ComicBook/SwampThing he has a harelip. Then there's the endless variations in which way his horns point, what his bracelets and belt look like, and [[WhoWearsShortShorts how much leg]] he's showing. In a subtler example, nobody can decide whether Jason Blood's SkunkStripe is on the right or left side of his head.

!!!Marvel
* Smasher, in Jonathan Hickman's ''Avengers'' run. When initially drawn by Adam Kubert, she was depicted as pretty tanned, as would be expected from someone who grew up on a farm in Iowa. She also had very dark brown hair. However, Leinil Francis Yu drew her as having very pale skin and very light brown hair. Then Nick Bradshaw draws her with ''black'' hair. ''Then'', Stefano Caselli draws her with ''very'' brown hair that's seemingly black, except in the right light, and brown eyes. This was all across a run ''by the same writer'', ''who created her''. You'd think he would've stepped in at some point.
* There's an odd case regarding Maria Hill. While it's all over the place usually, with the one consistent thing being that it's ''short''.
* ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's Comicbook/MarvelNOW redesign has been laughably inconsistent. It was introduced in ''Comicbook/TheAvengers'', but looks quite different in ''Comicbook/UncannyAvengers'' and Cap's own solo book. Some artists add in the old head wings (which were ''not'' present in the initial redesign), change the boot shapes, and make various other alterations to it.
** His foe Black Racer is sometimes depicted as African-American ([[CaptainEthnic as her name would imply]]), and other times she's a white woman.
* [[ComicBook/MsMarvel The new Captain Marvel]]'s hairstyle varies ''between series'', said series being ''[[ComicBook/TheAvengers Avengers]]'', ''Avengers Assemble'', ''ComicBook/AllNewXMen'', and her self-titled series, and ranges from her new mohawk with long hair, to a short boyish mohawk, and to just her previous long locks as Ms. Marvel.
* ComicBook/{{Carnage}}'s host Cletus Kasady's appearance varies throughout the series; originally he was depicted looking like the Joker with a normal skin tone and curly red hair, other times he has wild wavy hair, and some of his more recent appearances depict him looking like a redneck with a receding hairline, and some artists depict him as a blonde rather than a redhead. It also varies whether he's scrawny or muscular.
* The skin color and musculature of recurring ''Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}'' enemy Turk varies wildly. This necessitated the eventual HandWave that he has vitiligo and gets prescribed steroids to keep it in check.
* ComicBook/{{Deadpool}} has been drawn with various skin colors-- gray, brown, red, flesh-- and with various skin textures-- looking like gravel, like a burn victim, like a fairly normal person covered in tumors, like he's been sculpted out of pudding-- and his ugliness is majorly played up on his date with Big Bertha for the sake of a gag. It's been {{handwave}}ed that his cancer and healing factor fight it out, thus his appearance is always in flux.
** Also Deadpool's pal Weasel, who might be broad, square-jawed and big-nosed in one book and scrawny, pointy-chinned and narrow-nosed in another. He also appears to have quite a collection of glasses.
** Deadpool's daughter, Ellie, is another extreme example. Her appearance is drastically different every time she's shown. She's bi-racial, but sometimes will be drawn as more African American. Her mom, Carmelita was a Latina -which contains white, black, and mixed racial origins. [[http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/silverfang2/29185537/1140413/1140413_1000.png Anyhow, Ellie undergoes a good few changes in look.]] Her maternal grandmother, Ms. Camacho, also gets [[http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/silverfang2/29185537/1118044/1118044_original.png whitewashed]]. As we see, she's introduced as a brown-skinned Latina woman. But she didn't stay that way.
* Nocturne of the ''Comicbook/{{Exiles}}'' is the alternate-reality daughter of [[ComicBook/XMen Nightcrawler]] and the ComicBook/ScarletWitch, and there's a surprising lack of agreement on how much of her father's physical quirks she inherited. Sometimes she has five fingers per hand, sometimes three. Sometimes she has normal feet, sometimes not. Artists can't even agree on whether or not she ''has a tail'' and really, at that point the editors should be stepping in (or at least giving them an official character model to work with). About the only thing they can agree on is that she's blue.
** Comicbook/{{Nightcrawler}} himself suffers from a bit of this. Sometimes he has pupils, but usually his eyes are solid yellow; sometimes his eyes are always in shadow, other times his forehead is lit naturally; at least one artist for some reason decided his hair should stick up like Count Chocula's. The most frequent point of dissention is his feet: they always have two oversized toes in front, and should have a third in back to let his feet grasp like a bird's talon but many artists draw him with normal heels, and some have shown him wearing normal shoes when going in public in a ConspicuousTrenchcoat, which should be impossible.
** They actually decided that Nocturne's tail was actually retractable, complete with one of her teammates commenting on how freaky that was after watching her retract it.
* Fin Fang Foom sometimes wears [[MonsterModesty incongruous purple pants]] and is sometimes a case of NonhumansLackAttributes (sometimes [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/08/Foom%205.JPG both]]).
** He was also orange instead of green once, but [[spoiler:that was really the Midgard Serpent in disguise.]]
* Of all the {{Creator/Marvel}} characters, [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk the Hulk]] has probably the greatest variety of appearances. He started out looking like an 8-foot beefed up version of Franchise/{{Frankenstein}}'s monster (probably not accidentally, as Universal's ''Frankenstein'' film was one of the inspirations for the character), but now varies tremendously from artist to artist: facial features resembling anything from a human brute through to a full-on caveman, how muscular he is, how big he is, his hairstyle, the amount of veins visible,the length of his limbs in relation to each other, the length and color of his shredded pants, etc. And that's just the Savage (green) Hulk, never mind his other personas...
** What's more, the Hulk's appearance will vary with the ''same artist''. Each artist will usually keep the face consistant, but his overall size and proportions will vary from panel to panel.
** Other variables; Hulk's eyes. Green or red? Blood; green or red? His third wife [[PlanetHulk Caiera]] and their son Skaar also have variable eye colors, from blue to green.
** Of course, since the Peter David years, it's been established that the Hulk's appearance and personality are a direct reflection of Banner's subconscious mental state, so many of the artists' different approaches to him could probably be put down to Banner's frequently-shifting psychological troubles.
* Comicbook/IronMan's situation is complicated in that all his different armors tend to look ''sort of'' alike, and the devil is in the details. A painful example is the 'Extremis'-armor: it ''does'' look different from the one immediately preceding it, and it is pretty important to remember this, because the in-story differences are pretty radical. And yet, many artists just kept drawing him with the Model XXIX while he had switched to the Model XXX long since! And this is not even taking unto account the many, many instances where artists just drew whatever they felt.
* Comicbook/IronMan's enemy Madame Masque has a golden mask that is inconsistently handled by artists. Some artists depict it as having sculpted features, while others portray it as tight and malleable enough to show Masque's facial features and allow her to eat.
* Jarvis, the Avenger's butler, is always depicted as a tall lean man. Except when drawn by John Byrne, in which case he will be short and pudgy.
* Loki seems to have a new look every time he shows up. The basics stay the same, but lots of other things change. Not surprising, considering the main thing that Loki is known for is illusions and shape-shifting:
** He always has a head piece with horns. Whether it's a helmet or a headband, or how curved/long the horns are is DOTA.
** The only really consistent thing is that his eyes are almost always a bright green. Everything else is up for debate.
** And now with Kid!Loki the artists can't seem to decide on his physical age. His main book (Journey Into Mystery) draws him around 10 years old, the other Thor book puts him closer to 12, and the Fear Itself tie-ins where he's featured have him look more like a young teenager.
*** One memorable cover with him, Hercules, and Juggernaut had him look 16-17 and fairly ripped.
** Not as much since the movie's out now, but some more casual readers used to think Loki was blonde, since his traditional costume (until he took Sif's body in 2005) had a blonde ponytail hanging off his helmet... even when it wasn't a helmet but a cloth head-covering (it was however just an ornamental attachment). In his last adult-male drawings, the blonde hair was changed to gold ribbons, presumably to avoid this. He was just so rarely seen without something covering his hair that some people didn't even know (much like the symbol on the back of Superman's cape). One rare time when he had his helmet off in a crossover with the X-Men, his hair was black.
* ComicBook/ThePunisher's skull symbol is always different between artists. His clothing also varies from being a full body costume to just being a shirt with a skull on it. Another thing that varies is if his outfit is all black, or if he has white gloves and boots as he did when he was first introduced.
* ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'' has this. The more recent comics have a very different looking Chase, for instance, due to a change in artist.
** Runaways in general features some running variables:
*** Is Gert genuinely chubby, (Adrian Alphona) or just [[HollywoodPudgy not quite as slim as Nico or Karolina?]] (every other artist)
*** Or how Karolina's glowy form is drawn?
* ''ComicBook/SheHulk'':
** Southpaw's supertech gauntlet is incredibly large (with any given finger being wider than her head) with one artist and looks like a relatively normal glove with another.
** As mentioned in the ProgressivelyPrettier article, She-Hulk herself varies in appearance from merely lean and athletic to being almost as musclebound as her cousin.
** In fact, this strikes a ''lot'' of that series' supporting cast. Particularly, Stu Cicero goes from chubby to scrawny depending on which artist is drawing him (and the series regularly, sometimes several times in one issue, switched between two artists for effect, making this especially noticeable.) Similarly, Anthony Pugliese is bulky, brawny, and broad-shouldered with one artist and almost entirely generic with the other.
** Lyra - the daughter of the Hulk and Thundra from a possible future - was drawn (and written) as very clearly an adult (She-Hulk with red hair) when she appeared in her own limited series. When she joined Jennifer Walters for the ''She-Hulks'' series, she inexplicably became noticeably younger and entered high school in her human form (the age shift was more a writer decision than an artist one, but there's no reason she couldn't have changed between a high-school aged human and the adult-looking She-Hulk appearance she'd previously had). The fact that this made her limited series - in which she'd come to the present to get pregnant with Norman Osborn's DNA - ridiculously creepy was entirely ignored.
* The eyes on ComicBook/SpiderMan's mask change sizes quite frequently, even allowing for {{expressive|Mask}}ness. As do the sizes of the web nets under his arms, ranging from connecting elbow and waist to nonexistent. The spider emblem on his chest has gradually become less and less goofy. In some cases, some artist even drew the suit as red and black instead of red and blue. And don't even get started on what colour shading the symbiote suit is supposed to have...
** Ditko's early work suggests that Spidey's costume was ''originally'' red and black; black was often shown with blue highlights back in the four-color days. As the series progressed, the "highlights" slowly became the base color; John Romita's advent on the book entrenched that as canon.
*** Spider-Man's appearance in his red and blue costume was standard for years, based on the John Romita Sr. version. Then when Todd [=McFarlane=] became the artist in the late Eighties he made the eyes bigger, brought back the black base color and made the weblines look like spaghetti. Even after [=McFarlane=] left this remained the look for most of the Nineties.
** There's also the question of whether or not Spidey has weblike membranes under his arms. He did in his first appearances, and almost never does anymore. In between, it varied depending on whether or not a given artist remembered - or was aware in the first place - that they were supposed to be there. It has been known to appear and disappear from one issue to the next even if it's part of the same story; within the world of the story they were there five second ago but are now gone even as he continues to chase Doc Ock with no time having passed. (Also, when it's there, it can go from being quite small to connecting his wrist to his waist.
* SpiderMan's Carlie Cooper falls victim to this a lot, to the point where fans aren't even sure what she's supposed to look like beyond "White and has glasses". Most notably is ever changing hair style and color which have NEVER been consistent between two issues. Ranges from pixie cut and light brown to past the shoulders and red-ish to just above the shoulders and more of a blondish to anything else. A lesser example is that intially colorist couldn't figure out how dark Lilly Hollister was supposed to be.
* Like the Hulk, Comicbook/{{Thanos}}' size and proportions tend to vary wildly depending on who is drawing him.
* ''ComicBook/XMen'':
** ComicBook/{{Storm}}:
*** Storm is quite infamous for this in regards to both her general appearance and costume. When the X-Men returned to wearing super-hero uniforms, Storm went back to wearing her "the Twelve" outfit. However, practically every single artist who drew her interpreted her outfit differently; changing the color scheme from black/gold to black/white on a whim, giving her boots and making her costume stop at the thighs, etc.
*** Storm herself varies from being "somewhat Asian" to "heavily African". Her own physical appearance also varies, and this happens with a lot of black and non-white superheroes. Her skin tone varies greatly, as do her facial features.
** ComicBook/{{Rogue}}:
*** Her [[SkunkStripe white streak]] started as a pair of streaks on her temples, moved to the center of her head, and then to just her bangs. They can't make up their mind whether it's natural or bleached in, either. (In TheMovie, it was a result of dealing with Magneto's machine).
*** Early on (Avengers annual 10, her Dazzler issues), Rogue was often drawn as middle-aged, with graying hair at the temples and visible crow's feet around her eyes.
** Similar to Spidey, it was hard to know if black or blue was the intended appearance of the day-one outfits. Later comics alternate. There's also at least once instance of "blue for full-fledged X-Men, black for rookies" when the day-one look was being used as training uniforms while all characters had their own costumes out in the field.
** ComicBook/{{Magneto}}:
*** He's a Holocaust survivor, making him old by default, but an early incident where he was de-aged and re-aged has left his true appearance and visible age as a matter of debate. He boasted that the process returned him to his prime, but did re-aging him return him to his 70+ age or did bring back to being a young man in his thirties? Different artists will depict him as either a well-built old man with gray hair, a frail old man with gray hair, or a young, well-built man with gray hair. Considering he has natural gray hair only confuses the issue further.
** Iceman:
*** He arguably owes his current status quo to this phenomenon. For his first handful of appearances, he turned into a snowman, but very early on (''X-Men'' #8) he became able to turn into ice. And, indeed, the very first time Creator/JackKirby drew him as ice, he was obviously solid, ''transparent'' ice -- Angel even compares his powers to the Invisible Girl. Somewhere down the road, it was decided that he just ''coated'' himself in ice during combat. His inclusion on ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManAndHisAmazingFriends'' led to a generation of kids that knew what he looked like but didn't really know anything else about him and it became the common idea that he actually turned into ice (which ''is'' the most logical way to interpret his powers going on appearance alone). Eventually you started getting artists once again drawing him as transparent when in "iced up" form. Eventually turning into ice was made officially part of his power spread. Now, not only does he turn completely into ice, but no two artists can agree whether he looks the same as he used to, or like a normal person made of ice, or like some spiky-headed mosntrosity.
*** Of course, when you can convert your body to a substance that you can manipulate at will, who says you have to maintain a constant shape in your transformed state? The ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse version of Iceman (which is where the "ice body" concept first appeared) embodied this idea. As flighty as the mainstream Iceman is often depicted, it's a testament to his ability to concentrate (or, possibly, his subconscious desire to fit in) that his shape is not in as constant flux as the [=AoA=] version.
** ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}:
*** His claws. Are they like knives, in that they have an edge? Are they basically needles? Are they curved slightly, completely straight or so curved they might as well be hooks? Do they come out behind or between his knuckles?
*** His height. Canonically and originally, he was a pretty short dude. But then he eventually got taller and taller, and once Creator/HughJackman became mainstream media's perception of him, it got much more common to make him tall, yet characters still referenced his short stature.
*** How scruffy he is. Is he just a little disheveled with slightly bushy eyebrows? Or is he a full-blown caveman?
** Are the brow points on his cowl short and spiky or long and blade-like?
** ComicBook/KittyPryde:
*** She is usually small-busted, but damnit if Frank Cho can't draw women as anything but hypervoluptous, hourglass-shaped glamour models.
*** While Alan Davis, whose depictions of Kitty in ''Excalibur'' are considered a definitive version, managed to strike a nice balance in drawing her in realistic proportions for a developing teenager (14-15 at that point), while depicting her older teammates Phoenix and Meggan as more curvy and voluptuous. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d very early in the original ''Excalibur'' run, when Kitty tried to masquerade as Phoenix in the latter's ''very'' skintight costume.
*** There's also her age. It's not so bad these days, and it wasn't so bad ''right'' after her introduction, but for the middle years? Sometimes she looked 12, sometimes she looked 20, sometimes she looked [[TeensAreShort shorter than Rachel and Meggan but still 20]] and the writers clearly ''thought'' she was being made to actually look younger (leading to strange instances where what you've thought of as a grown woman for the past 10 issues reminds us she can't drive.)
** ComicBook/{{Gambit}} :
*** He traditionally has eyes with black scleras and red irises and pupils, but other colors turn up all the time.
** Marrow:
*** Also of the X-Men, has had wild variations in skin color, from extremely pale to olive complexioned to slight purple tint. Her hair has seen similar difficulties; Pink? Red? Light brown? Purple?
*** Marrow's physical deformities are depicted entirely differently from artist to artist also - does she have bony ridges around her face or actual bones sticking out at odd angles from her forehead and shoulders, etc.? At least twice there's been an in-story explanation for this (her powers get altered) but at one point she was appearing in two different ComicBook/XMen books that were supposedly taking place more-or-less simultaneously with appearances so different you could not have guessed it was the same character except through dialogue and process of elimination.
** ComicBook/{{X 23}}:
*** Much like Logan her height tends to vary. Sometimes she's roughly his height or taller, sometimes she's shorter. Her build is also inconsistent; at times she's depicted as very svelte and petite, others more muscular or athletic (though never to AmazonianBeauty levels). Her bust size varies almost as much as her overall build, with the artist for "Mercury Falling" in particular giving her [[MostCommonSuperpower quite an impressive rack]].
*** Some artists draw her to resemble the teenager she's supposed to be, but others make her look much older, into her 20s.
*** Although canonically green, in her first appearance in ''NYX'', and initially in ''New X-Men'', her eyes were brown. Throughout the first volume of ''Comicbook/AllNewXMen'' they were blue like Logan's. Canonically and in most of her appearances they're green.
** "Cat Beast" (that is, the version of Beast from X-Men that is cat-like) has a tendency to look like a different animal depending on who draws him. He's been a grizzly bear, a baboon, a lion, and sometimes looks closer to the older version, "Ape Beast".
** Abyss's appearance has widely varied within ''the same story arc''. Made of wispy thread things vs. Nightcrawler-like furriness.
* ''[[ComicBook/XMen Astonishing X-Men]]'' member Hisako Ichiki (a.k.a. Armor) has the ability to generate Psionic Body Armor, the shape of which differs from artist to artist. Where John Cassaday would draw it as shaped like Samurai armor, other artists range between that and ginormous bubble suits, and this isn't even going into the color of it.
** Hisako also suffers from this regarding how old she looks. Cassaday originally drew her looking like she's in her mid teens, but later artists make her look anywhere from a 9 to a 19 year old.
* ''ComicBook/NewMutants'':
** The member Sofia Mantega (Wind Dancer) is Venezuelan but she's drawn in a variety of ways, ranging from fairly dark skinned with South American features to AmbiguouslyBrown to very Caucasian-looking with blonde hair. Most commonly she appears somewhere in between.
** Sunspot is of Afro-Brazilian descent (though his mother is white, his first appearance has a fellow Brazilian bullying him due to his African heritage) but a lot of artists seem to forget this and simply make him look like [[LatinoIsBrown the stereotypical American depiction of a "Hispanic" person]]. His skin tone varies wildly, as do his facial features and hair texture.
* Hepzibah, a member of the Starjammers from the X-Men setting, was an anthropmorphic skunk complete with pheromone powers, then someone apparently thought she'd look nicer as, or had a thing for, white furred elves with tails, leaving a character that's has "In Name Only" in common with the original. It doesn't even have the same quirky speech pattern!
* Monet St. Croix from ''ComicBook/GenerationX'' and ''ComicBook/XFactor'' is another AmbiguouslyBrown example. Her father is [[http://worldofblackheroes.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/cartier-st-croix-6.jpg Afro-French]] and her mother was Algerian, but the artists can't seem to decide on a skin tone for her. Sometimes she looks African or Arabic, while other times she just looks like a white lady who's been spending too much time at a tanning salon.
* Hope Summers also constantly changes her look. Does she look like a little girl that has barely reached age 12? Or like a teenager? Sometimes she even looks like a red-haired Emma Frost. This stood out the most in ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'', where it changed nearly every damn issue.
* In the Golden Age, [[ComicBook/SubMariner Namor the Sub-Mariner's]] head was darned near triangular. Most modern artists just translate this into him having a pointed chin and a distinctive hairstyle, but it varies all over the place.
* Creator/JackKirby himself changed his mind about Uatu the Watcher. When he first introduced Uatu, he was a classic MyBrainIsBig (or at least My Head Is Big) alien with a skinny body, but Kirby later redesigned him as a chubby guy with a normal-sized bald head. Later artists seem to be able to freely choose which design they like better, but most lean toward the giant-headed version. Ditto for the rest of Uatu's race.
* Similarly, when Kirby introduced the Skrulls, they were a race of skinny little short guys with bug eyes, but he later started drawing them as tall muscular types. As with Uatu, mentioned above, modern artists may choose either extreme or anywhere in between. Of course, as a race of [[VoluntaryShapeShifting shape-shifters,]] this is probably completely [[JustifiedTrope justified.]]

!!!Other
* From a same story-arc, between artists sharing every issue of it– the 1996 ''Marvel vs. DC'' had at least three inconsistencies between Dan Jurgens' and Claudio Castellini's art:
** 1- Mjolnir's handle: Jurgens drew it tied to a leather strap; Castellini drew it tied to a chain.
** 2- Elektra's headgear is a kerchief to Jurgens, and just a red strip around her forehead, not covering hair in Castellini's art.
** 3- Lobo's hair- wavy to Jurgens, straight to Castellini.
* ''Franchise/ArchieComics'':
** Just how much of a {{gonk}} is Big Ethel? She has gotten ProgressivelyPrettier over time but that only added more variety to her designs. Sometimes she's a gangly girl wearing "unfashionable" clothes while sometimes she just has a different body type [[OnlySixFaces the others]]. Sometimes her supposed "ugliness" goes into InformedFlaw territory. Normal girl with overbite, barely human, and everything in between has been seen.
** How attractive is Midge? She is often treated as very attractive but she tends to not be portrayed any differently than the background girls are, making this more of an InformedAttribute.
** How big is Jughead's nose depends on the artist.
** On default everyone has BlackBeadEyes but when they're depicted with eye colors it's rarely consistent. The main group of Archie, Betty, Jughead, and Veronica have all been depicted with either brown or blue eyes (though Betty is usually blue eyed). The ''ComicBook/ArchieComics2015'' reboot mixes things up by giving Archie green eyes, Betty blue eyes, and both Jughead and Ronnie brown eyes.
* All the older characters in ''ComicBook/TheBeano'' have outlived their original artists by some time, and succeeding artists have often made major changes to the character designs.
** In the Beano and ComicBook/TheDandy favorites from the Forties there are two pages devoted to showing how Pansy Potter's appearance differed depending on the artist.
** Subverted with Minnie the Minx in the 2000s. Long-serving artist Jim Petrie retired in 2001, and over the next few years a succession of artists all tried their hands at the strip, sometimes radically changing Minnie and/or her family. Then, when the editors finally settled on Ken Harrison as regular artist later in the decade, he undid not only the previous artists' changes but even those of Jim Petrie, taking Minnie all the way back to how her original artist Leo Baxendale had drawn her in the 1960s.
* ''ComicBook/{{DMZ}}'':
** Kristian Donaldson's guest renditions of the main characters look very different and are more conventionally attractive, with smoother complexions, larger eyes and more angular features. Zee is also more AmbiguouslyBrown.
** Kristian Donaldson does not draw Matty with his [[PointlessBandAid trademark nose bandage]]. After she filled in for Burchielli on issue 20, Burchielli apparently did homage to her choice by not drawing it on Matty's face for issue 21. In issue 22, however, it inexplicably returns.
* The city of [[ComicBook/{{DisneyDucksComicUniverse}} Duckburg]] tends to vary in size, from a quirky small town to a large city to (almost exclusively in stories by Marco Rota and the aforementioned ''ComicBoook/PaperinikNewAdventures'', which is explicitly a different continuity) a bustling metropolis full of skyscrapers. Its most famous building, the Money Bin, varies in appearance too, sometimes having a dome on top, sometimes sitting on large hill.
* ''ComicBook/{{Fables}}''. Pinocchio suffers the most from this. It's most noticeable in ''The Dark Ages'', between the first story in the collection, as opposed to when he appears later.
* ''Series/{{Heroes}}'': This is an odd use of the trope in a comic series based off of a live-action series. [[{{Invisibility}} Claude]]'s facial features tend to change depending on who's drawing the comic: when he first showed up in a storyline, he looked like Alan Rickman; the second time, he looked exactly like Creator/ChristopherEccleston, as he should; the third time, he and everyone else in the comic looked pretty generic.
* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'':
** In Carlos Ezquerra's original strips, Dredd had a rather sleeker, more police-like uniform; the modern, chunkier, big-booted look was [[MyRealDaddy created by Mike McMahon]]. Throughout the comic, his [[LanternJawOfJustice chin]] varies between prominent and ridiculous. In recent strips, as he's been getting older, his wrinkles have also been subject to artistic interpretation; while Colin [=MacNeil=] draws him with fairly smooth but weathered skin, Leigh Gallaher makes him look like a [[BadassGrandpa truly old man]].
** Since the Judges updated their iconic [[SwissArmyGun Lawgivers]] to the Mark II version, the depiction of that gun has gone through a strange amount of variance. General shifts in the gun's bulkiness is one thing, but some artists change what is arguably the gun's most recognizable feature, the half-circle ammo indicator, to a flat row of lights.
* In ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' [[GoldKeyComics comics,]] Bugs' girlfriend Honey Bunny has been depicted as a rabbit with tan or yellow fur with varying body types, as a white and gray furred rabbit with a similar expression to Bugs, or as a near identical DistaffCounterpart of Bugs.
* The Brazilian ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' comic ''ComicBook/NovasAventurasDeMegaMan'' suffered from this trope especially hard, as it had a different artist for each issue... and sometimes had multiple artists within ''one issue''. Characters could be drawn SuperDeformed in one issue, and with human proportions in another. This was the least of the comic's [[ScheduleSlip problems]].
* In the second story-arc of ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW'' Luna sports her Season 1 appearance in spite of the series taking place after Season 2. [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2013/04/official-comic-6-and-rarity-3-release.html#IDComment627248051 Colorist Heather Breckel]] says [[spoiler:this is story related, however, and she has her post-"Luna Eclisped" look on the main cover for Issue #8.]]
* ''ComicBoook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' has this UpToEleven, since over twenty artists worked on it and no one did two issues in a row. [[RobotGirl Lyla]] is the most extreme case: she has been depicted from extremely sexy to slightly macrocephalic, and they never agreed if she had duck-like or human-like feet.
* The color of ComicStrip/ThePhantom's bodysuit varies greatly depending on which country the comic is published. In some it's gray, or purplish-blue, or green, or ''red''. That's right, the Ghost who Walks sneaks up on his foes in a bright red body stocking. Ninjas have nothing on his skill.
* ''ComicBook/PhantomLady'':
** Her '50s comic was notorious for changing her appearance even in the same story. She would change from a blonde to brunette, and her face and chest changed from panel to panel.
** While her MostCommonSuperpower has remained relativity consistent, the height that goes with it has changed radically. In her earlier comics she seemed fairly short-maybe 5'2 feet. In modern era even her UsefulNotes/WW2 version is about 6' feet tall and much more modelesque.
* Ever since the 90s Salem from ''ComicBook/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' has been a black cat; however whether he's completely black or two-tone, and exactly how the markings are, differ. Likewise Sabrina has gone through various hair lengths in the last 20 years but Archie has gone back to the original BobHaircut.
* ''Comicbook/TheSandman''. This does make a bit of sense, considering it's stated early on that everybody who perceives the Endless see them a little differently. However, the way this attribute works is sometimes inconsistent. In the first volume, when he meets Nada in Hell, Dream still has his trademark chalk-white skin, only with African-style facial features. When they meet again in volume 4 he suddenly becomes black.
* ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'':
** Depending on who's doing the penciling the characters will either have [[FourFingeredHands four]] or five fingers. Patrick Spaziante (who does most of the covers) tends to do five. It happened to the Overlander race with such frequency that, when [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure Station Square]] made its appearance, they HandWave the mistakes by saying that they were descendants of humans.
** How the Modern Era Sonic's quills were drawn also DOTA, especially in the months after the reveal and the switch over. A lot of times, his quills were drawn exceptionally long and sometimes not long at all.
** There's also how females that aren't Amy Rose and Rouge the Bat are drawn. Are they SEGA-isque? Are they more human-like? How much clothing do they wear? Sally and Bunnie are easily the worst offenders of the bunch, with Sally's proportions and fur varying and Bunnie becoming more like the [[IncrediblyLamePun "Sax Cymbal"]] she's depicted today, her robotic parts slimming out and her front being modified from just her body fur to an actual leotard.
* ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic'':
** Johnny Lightfoot and Porker Lewis sometimes wear [[WhiteGloves gloves]] and [[BarefootCartoonAnimal shoes]] and sometimes don't (once they [[AnthropomorphicShift wear clothes at all]], anyway).
** In the ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' adaptation what color is everyone's eye color? Sonic is portrayed as having green eyes and Amy with brown eyes but everyone else is up in the air. Does Tails have brown eyes or blue? Are Knuckles purple or blue? Johnny and Lewis, blue eyes or not?
* [[http://www.misterkitty.org/extras/stupidcovers/stupidcomics136.html Super Duck]] has been subjected to this, most obvious in his girlfriend Uwanna, whose depictions range from prime [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom fetish fuel]] towering over Super Duck himself, to a loli the same size as him.
* In the StarWars comic crossover series Vector, main character Celeste Morne went from looking like [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:Celeste_Morne.jpg This]] in the first issue of the series, to looking like [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:Zayne-flash.jpg this]] in the final issue.
* The various ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' comics constantly have characters switching between designs - be it the cartoon design, the model they were supposed to work from but tweaked, or art based on the toy but one artist using a different version. Sometimes, UK-written stories have slightly different color schemes from the US-written ones. The most {{egregious}} ''recent'' examples from IDW's series are ''ComicBook/TheTransformersAllHailMegatron'' ([[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 G1]] designs vs. designs based on newer toys vs. the designs used in Simon Furman's books) and the [[Film/{{Transformers}} movieverse]] version of Arcee (goes from looking like her unused Movie 1 design to looking like ''Anime/TransformersEnergon'' Arcee and back, until ''Revenge of the Fallen'' gave us a new official design.)
** The post-AHM Transformers comics are an even better example. In the ongoing series, Bumblebee had his E.J. Su design with Don Figeroa's current movie-inspired high detail style. But in the Bumblebee mini-series, running concurrently with the main book, Bumblebee is drawn with his G1 cartoon character model. Blurr is shown to have adopted an terrestrial vehicle mode in the ongoing series, but in a continuation of the very same scene at the beginning of issue 2 of the Bumblebee mini-series, he's shown with his Cybertronian vehicle mode! Artistic license is one thing, but swapping character models is going a little too far. It's gotten where each artist uses his preferred look for the characters, and to the Pit with what they looked like last issue.
** And then you have Rumble and Frenzy, who can sudddenly swap colors in between (or even ''during'') stories - see the [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/FIRRIB#IDW_Generation_1_continuity FIRRIB]] page on Wiki/TFWikiDotNet for more.
* In the ComicBook/XWingSeries, Huff Darklighter is a large, clearly overweight older man, balding but with long straight hair, also argumentative and contrary, particularly with the Rebels. In ''Darklighter'', Huff is a slim older man with a full head of curly hair, a neat beard, and a decidedly more Rebel-loving bent.
** In the first set of Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy comics, the Noghri, alien commandos that can and have passed as Jawas or children, are depicted as hulking behemoths. The other comics promptly changed back to how they were described in the novel. And in that first set, Wedge had black hair. Everywhere else, it's brown.
** In the same series, is Fel's build massive or slim? For that matter, what's his chosen formalwear, New Republic or Imperial with Rebel crests? Is 'Doc' Ceresi big and stocky, or your standard tiny female Twi'lek? Is [[BoisterousBruiser Plourr]] an AmazonianBeauty or not? Is [[BigBad Isard]] [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:IsardHead.jpg young-looking]] or [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:IsardMad_copy.jpg not]]?
** Bothans have variously been drawn as looking more like lions, horses, or goats.
* ''ComicBook/WerewolfByNight'': While Jack Russell's werewolf form changed over the years, it was done consistently: first a typical WolfMan à la Lon Chaney Jr., later more lupine (and with [[{{Revision}} an added explanation]] to go with it). As of the late 2000s/early 2010s the depiction of his wolf self has become completely erratic: one artist draws him 'old style', the next very lupine, another somewhere between the two; sometimes he has a tail and sometimes he doesn't; sometimes his eyes are red, sometimes yellow. As a human, Jack has had every eye color and hair color imaginable. Officially he's a blue-eyed redhead, but works where he's depicted as such are rare.
* Irma's weight in ''ComicBook/{{Witch}}'' fluctuates often.
* The many different artists who have worked on ''ComicBook/{{Grendel}}'' disagree most glaringly on the character design of The Wolf, Argent. Different stories have placed him just about everywhere on the spectrum from "furry, fanged humanoid" to "slightly humanised wolf that even looks as if he has to make a great effort to stay bipedal".

** Deadpool's daughter, Ellie, is another extreme example. Her appearance will sometimes drastically change during the same volume within the spam of a few pages.

** Pre-ComicBook/{{Crisis|on Infinite Earths}}, there was no mystery to it. Dude got himself in shape. Granted that continuity-loving writer E. Nelson Bridwell was probably the only one to bother lampshading it, but he did. Then the Crisis came, and JohnByrne made him fat again. Eventually, Grant Morrison's reboot had a chunky Lex at the beginning of Supes's career, before Luthor is driven to a physical perfection regime by his inferiority complex.
