** Many sources claim Dooly is a ''Ceratosaurus''. While he is vaguely a bipedal dinosaur with horn on his nose, any of his resemblance to a ceratosaur is zilch.

** Just like [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic the cartoon]], G4 ponies less resemble horses and more resemble weird looking dogs. Proper looking horses do appear though, such as the Saddle Arabian delegates who look like Arabian horses.

* Many animals in ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' are informed species. Birds in general often fall victim to this, as do most cats. The toys of feline characters tend to fall into a very similar (but not actually resembling any actual cat) build.
* In ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'''s 2007 line, the Barraki have launchers used to fire squids that look more like lampreys than actual squids and are also stated to be vampiric like the latter.

** G2 bombed in most places, bar [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff a few European countries]], because of this. The toys no longer resembled ''ponies'', they looked like ordinary ''horses''. While there is a lot of overlap between the two due to being the same species, ponies are overall shorter and stockier than other horses.
** G1 had "Dream Beauties" which were essentially a predecessor to G2. They didn't look like ponies, with the official consensus seeming to be that they were "teenage ponies". That didn't make much sense though, since most previous ponies were adults and ponies don't suddenly become long-legged during adolescence.
** G3.5 ponies just look off. They don't really resemble anything, besides maybe some sort of dog-horse mix. Their proportions are completely wrong even for SuperDeformed ponies.

* The eponymous Arthur of the picture books and later animated TV series is billed as an aardvark. In the earliest books there is some trace of a resemblance, and the elongated nose is actually relevant to the plot (though it resembles that of an anteater's more than an aardvark's.) Later in the series, you wouldn't know unless you were told.

* In a real life example, it's a known issue that many dogs in animal shelters are mislabeled. They don't give them DNA checks, so the people just check if they have enough characteristics of a certain type of dog and categorize them as such. Due to how dogs work, mixed breeds can look a variety of ways despite their heritage. This means that just about any dog could be called a "Lab mix" or "Pit Bull/Staffie mix" even if they contain very little or none of those breeds in them, and often times they don't truly resemble the breeds much either.
