* In ''Franchise/PowerRangers,'' AnimalMecha often don't look much like the animal they're supposed to be. However, sometimes, the zord's name was changed from ''Franchise/SuperSentai'', where it resembles the animal it was ''originally'' named for (''Series/PowerRangersRPM'' especially, where a lot of the less {{Badass}} animal motifs in ''Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger'' were renamed but you can't do anything about the sentai StockFootage).

Added DiffLines:

* Many portrayals of ''Apatosaurus'' and ''Brontosaurus'' are shown with longer necks and thinner frames more akin to ''Diplodocus''. Apatosaurine sauropods are known for being heavily-built, with ''Apatosaurus'' having a bulkier neck than that of ''Brontosaurus''.

* Carson the Muskrat in ''DorkTower''. He looks more like Snoopy than like an actual muskrat. This is lampshaded in one strip where he goes as himself to a costume event and gets told "[[YourCostumeNeedsWork Worst muskrat costume ever!]]"

Added DiffLines:

* Most media depictions of pterosaurs [[PteroSoarer look practically nothing like the real animals]]. Common errors include leathery bat-like wings (the wing structure of pterosaurs was actually quite different from that of any extant flying vertebrate), teeth and long bony tails in genera that lacked either of these features, grasping talons like those of a bird of prey (as far as we can tell from fossils pterosaur feet seem highly unsuitable for grasping), and a covering of scales instead of pycnofibres (pycnofibres being the fur-like structures that many, if not all pterosaurs were coated with in life).
