** 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?
** Poison Ivy'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...

** The Riddler 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.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' 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.

* This happens in ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' all the time, across the various different media. The official artwork by {{Bandai}} may obscure or omit certain details of each monster's body, which then have to be guessed at by later artists drawing the character.

* 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".



* When Paul Kidby replaced Josh Kirby as the cover artist for ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'', not only he brought a different style, but also significant changes to the appearances of some characters -- most notably Rincewind, who was depicted by Kirby as an old, Gandalf-like mage with a long white beard (see the ''Discworld/{{Sourcery}}'' [[http://www.lspace.org/books/covers/sourcery.html cover]] for an example), but in [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Rincewind.png Kidby's interpretation]] is clearly younger and sports just a short, brown goatee.

It's been acknowledged that Kidby's interpretations are much closer to Pratchett's descriptions of characters than Kirby's. (Kirby had a notoriously free attitude to interpreting the books - most famously the cover of ''The Light Fantastic'' shows a female barbarian character wearing the sort of stereotypical {{Stripperiffic}} fetish costume that Pratchett had specifically described her as '''not''' wearing in the novel.)



* As one noted in the DVDCommentary of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', whether Sokka and Aang are lean but muscular or just flat-out scrawny-looking changes depending on the animator.

*** His claws. Are the like knives, in that they have an edge? Are are they basically needles? Are they curved slightly, completely straight or so curved they might as well be hooks?
*** His height. Canonically and originally, he was a pretty short dude. But then he eventually got taller and taller, and once Hugh Jackman became mainstream media's perception of him, it got much more common to make him tall, yet characters still referenced his short stature.

hooks? Do they come out behind or between his knuckles?

*** [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter The Moogles]]: In the early series they're vaguely catlike white-or-light-colored furballs with a pom-pom and tiny purple wings, like [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080309044554/finalfantasy/images/7/78/FFIX-Moogle_Concept.jpg so]]. From VII-X, they look like plush-toy versions of the above basic design (and in some cases are actual plush toys). The ''KingdomHearts'' and ''VideoGame/{{Dissidia|Final Fantasy}}'' moogles look like the plush-toy variants, but more so and, most notably, with a comically oversized head and [[GagNose big round clown nose]], as can be seen [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20091008033351/finalfantasy/images/5/58/Dissidia_Moogle_Render.png here]]. In the ''Crystal Chronicles'' spinoff series, moogles are like the "original-flavor" moogles, except [[UpToEleven even fluffier]] and overall less feline and more rodentine in appearance, a look shared with the moogle cameo in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII''. [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080407173622/finalfantasy/images/9/9e/Ffccking_moogle.jpg Forelimbs are optional]]. And then the Ivalice moogles (''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'', ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2'', and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' among others) are ''completely'' different, [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20070325003033/finalfantasy/images/e/e7/XII-moogles.jpg as you can see]].

* One show that deliberately invokes this trope is Creator/JohnKricfalusi's ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'', due to John's strict rule that there ''was'' no strict rule about staying on model. "Draw expressively, not well" was the order of the day at Spumco. He insisted his artists not have a character with the same pose or expression or even drawn the same way twice.

** His skin tone can be as pale as most of the other members of the Bat-Family, or slightly more tan if the artist remembers that he's half Armenian 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.

** 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.

* Discussed in ''Revealing Casper'', a documentary about the making of [[Film/{{Casper}} the 1995 film]]. Animators put a lot of their own expressions into their characters, but they didn't want to make it obvious that Casper was animated by at least five different people, so they had to downplay their expressions.
