* Averted by ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks'', where everyone has five-fingered hands. Also see the example for its [[WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks animated series]] in the Western Animation folder below.
* In ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', most of the characters have four fingers but in one panel of a strip, Calvin is drawn with five fingers on one hand and four fingers on the other by mistake.

* ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' series have both the four-fingered and five-fingered hands. The SEGA-based heroes and the normal humans have five fingers while those from the Saturday morning ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' series or OriginalGeneration characters have four fingers. The humans with four fingers were given the name "Overlanders", while five-fingered humans are still referred to as "humans".

The humans with four fingers were given the name "Overlanders", while five-fingered humans are still referred to as "humans". This was lampshaded in the original miniseries where a fish robot attacks a drawing of Sonic on a rock, then mumbles about how he should have realized it was fake because it had four fingers.



* While ''most'' characters in the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' franchise have five fingers per hand, the character Fang the Sniper ([[{{Bowdlerise}} A.K.A. Nack the Weasel]]) has only four fingers per hand. This is generally attributed to the Yakuza idea, since he is the only Sonic character always drawn with four fingers. This was lampshaded in the original miniseries where a fish robot attacks a drawing of Sonic on a rock, then mumbles about how he should have realized it was fake because it had four fingers.

* Oddly enough, in ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'', some characters have four fingers whereas other characters have the normal five. To further confusion, certain characters (such as Dr. Loboto) have more ''joints'' on each finger than their compatriots.

Tim Schafer and Scott Campbell both, whether jokingly or not, refer to this "debacle" as the reason why the game never got released in Japan in the Psychonauts Vault Viewer app commentary.

** Since all demons look different some have five fingered hands, some have four fingers and others have only three, even then it can still be rather varied as in addition to the traditional four fingered look we meet one demon ([[spoiler:Buwaro's [[PosthumousCharacter late]] father]]) who had four fingers and no thumbs on his hands and some of the three fingered demons have a [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles ninja turtle-esce]] design of two-fingers-and-a-thumb while a few had three fingers and no thumbs.

Quite often, Western four-fingered characters have to be edited to have a fifth finger -- most notably ''WesternAnimation/BobTheBuilder''. Interestingly, this does ''not'' include Creator/{{Disney}} characters such as MickeyMouse, despite Disney's popularity in Japan--see ''Franchise/KingdomHearts''. Not a fan of their works being edited in any way, Disney is said to have paid USD 5 million a year to Japanese pressure groups to avoid being sued for Mickey's "insulting" four-fingered hands.[[note]]This was mentioned by the creators of the Oddworld videogame franchise in [[https://books.google.ru/books?id=6t6iL4wlfDcC&lpg=PA45&ots=Gfbc_5F1ds&dq=oddworld%20japan%20four%20fingers&pg=PA45#v=onepage&q&f=false their book]], where they also say they had to edit a finger off the player's character to avoid similar extortion.[[/note]]
