* Downplayed with Mipha from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. Compared to the male [[FishPeople Zora]] such as her brother Sidon (who is twice as tall as a human and has a head vaguely resembling that of a hammerhead shark) and her father Dorephan (who is ten times at tall as a human and has a whale-like body), and even compared to the other female Zora, she has a relatively more human-like appearance, seemingly lacking even the sharp carnivorous teeth of the others.

* Krystal from ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' is noticeably more "human"-like than everyone else. The most blatant feature, aside from the [[NonMammalMammaries Wrong-Type-of-Mammal Mammaries]], is her human-like head hair.

* On ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', female ducks are far likelier to have a head of hair or even a human shape, i.e. Magica Despell, Mrs. Beakly, Gandra Dee.



* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots''
** Played straight with Dulcinea (female), who has a humanlike figure, in contrast to Puss (male), who has a build more like a cat with a two-legged stance.
** Inverted with Sphinx (female), who stands on all fours, whereas Puss usually stands on two legs.



* Generally averted in ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'': if we see male and female characters of the same species, either the difference in body shape is minor with neither being more humanlike (after season one, Penny's body is more curved than her father's) or doesn't exist (body-wise Gumball is identical to his mother at his age, but shorter, even having the same [[HartmanHips large hips]]). However, there are a few straight examples:
** [[http://theamazingworldofgumball.wikia.com/wiki/File:300px-TobiasFamily.png The Wilson family]]: The father and son are [[AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal almost naked]] {{cephalothorax}}es covered in fur/hair. The mother and daughter are still quite cartoonish, but have heads distinct from their bodies, are fully clothed, and only have visible hair on their heads and faces. Nothing but their rainbow-colored hair even indicates it ''not'' being GenderEqualsBreed.
** [[http://theamazingworldofgumball.wikia.com/wiki/File:Robinsons28.jpg The Robinsons]]: The husband and his son have pill-shaped bodies [[NoNeckChump and no necks]]. The wife, again, is still not very humanlike, but has HartmanHips and a clear division between her head and body.



* On ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', female ducks are far likelier to have a head of hair or even a human shape, i.e. Magica Despell, Mrs. Beakly, Gandra Dee.



* Early example: The titular character of the 1932 Creator/VanBeuren cartoon "The Farmerette."



* Sophia in ''WesternAnimation/TheRaccoons'' looks much more humanoid than all the other aardvarks like Cedric and Cyril. Averted with the raccoons themselves though as all characters look similar whether male or female.



* Inverted with the two cats from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''; the Simpson family's pet cat, Snowball II (a female cat) and Scratchy (a male FunnyAnimal cat) from ''WesternAnimation/TheItchyAndScratchyShow''. This is likely because, in universe, Snowball II is a "real" cat and Scratchy is a "cartoon" cat.
** Scratchy (the [[FourLegsGoodTwoLegsBetter bipedal]] cat) and Snowball II (the normal quadrupedal cat) show up together in ''The Simpsons WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror IX'' segment, "The Terror of Tiny Toon". The two cats are at [[SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism such differing levels of anthropomorphism]] that FurryConfusion ensues.

Added DiffLines:

* Most of the [[EldritchAbomination Monsters]] in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' could, in spite of their abilities, pass off as [[AnimalisticAbomination natural animals under the right circumstances]], but the [[ConfusionFu Wraith]], which is [[WordOfGod specifically stated]] to be female, has an [[http://web.archive.org/web/20150611093309/http://a.pomf.se/spksvf.png appearance that is distinctly female]] to match. This was intentional per WordOfGod in order to work the [[UncannyValley uncanny]] angle.

* ''Come together! Seton Academy'' features this heavily. Almost all of the male animals(bar our TokenHuman protagonist and his LoveInterest) retain their animal features and appearances, tending to straddle the lines from CivilizedAnimal to FunnyAnimal. Meanwhile, the female animals tend to resemble humans bar a few obligatory features that indicate their nonhuman lineage.

(Then again, this might be done for [[MostWritersAreMale some other reasons]], though [[FetishFuel it is hard to imagine]] [[AuthorAppeal what they might be]]...)

* Gazelle in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' has a design based on her VA, Creator/{{Shakira}}, including HartmanHips and a FurryFemaleMane (one of two characters with one). Most other female characters are less anthropomorphic.

** This has been lampshaded by both Creator/DonRosa and Creator/CarlBarks, who draw "real" historical characters with this generic doglike feature because Creator/WaltDisney informed both artists that it would be less jarring to see them around {{Funny Animal}}s.
*** Walt Disney was no longer alive when Don Rosa began to draw Duck-comics. In any case, Barks made exceptions quite often, especially with many 'ethnic' characters. Rosa, on the other hand, made only one exception, in ''Quest for Literature/{{Kalevala}}'', where the Finnish god-heroes were drawn with human noses and five fingers.
