* [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Kidagakash]] from ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'' for some reason despite being an Atlantean actually looks more like a white woman with tanned skin and white hair, while the other Atlanteans (including [[Creator/LeonardNimoy her father, King Kashekhim Nedakh)]] have more ethnic designs. She is the only character in the film to have [[OccultBlueEyes blue eyes]], something no one else in the film has. Her fingers have rounded tips, while the males have square-tipped fingers, the other females also have similarly-drawn fingers ([[WrenchWench Audrey]] has squared fingers because of her tomboyish nature, while [[BlondesAreEvil Helga]] has claw-like fingers to fit her role as TheDragon).

* Played for horror in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''. In a world full of pixellated sprites, [[spoiler: Photoshop Flowey's "realistic" appearance emphasizes its otherworldly and godlike nature and serves to make the various disgusting details of its design even worse.]] On a less serious note, there's also Burgerpants, the neurotic, despairing BurgerFool employee, who seems to have been designed with Creator/JohnKricfalusi's "go OffModel every time, run rampant!" philosophy, and thus ends up with some pretty [[{{Gonk} out there]] facial expressions.

* Over Justice from ''Anime/SpacePatrolLuluco'' is basically an Anime/InfernoCop character transplanted in a setting based on ''[[Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'' Panty & Stocking]]'s style (this series runs on Gainax and Trigger homages, unsurprisingly). As such, he's a heavily shaded, barely animated cardboard cutout... until he needs to get serious, anyway.

** Most ponies are only one color, and often an unrealistic color like purple or green at that. Pipsqueak stands out amongst the other foals as he has a realistic horse coloring with two different colors and spots. He's also noticeably smaller than the other foals of his age group, even the fillies.

* The weird Russian point-and-click adventure ''[[http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/redcomrades/redcomrades.htm Red Comrades Save the Galaxy]]'' has a very cartoonish style, but where [[http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/redcomrades/redcomrades-4.png the two male main characters]] look like Tex Avery rejects, the [[http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/redcomrades/redcomrades-20.png female protagonist]] has much more realistic shading and proportions. Finally, the [=NPCs=] look like they've been drawn in MS Paint.

** On the subject of the Series/PaperMario series, most characters are depicted as paper-thin 3D models, rather than sprites. There are, however, several bosses that break this trend and use full 3D models, which becomes more common within the series until ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' has ''all'' of its bosses doing this. This began in ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' with the Koopa Bros' Bowser??? Tank and General Guy's lightbulb tank. The first game also had the elder tree in Flower Fields which is depicted more as a talking landmark than a normal character model.

** Spike plays with this trope--he's the first dragon we ever see in the series, but the more other dragons we see, the more abnormal Spike's lack of wings appears.

* ''VideoGame/MinecraftStoryMode'': Axel is the only main character who's bulky, a fact that is [[LampshadeHanging commented on several times throughout the game (sometimes by him)]]. It's impossible to have that player shape within ''Minecraft'' without the use of mods.

* One gag of ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheatricalCartoons'' involves a Lois leaving Clark talking to himself. A man next to Clark gets mad when he thinks that he's referring to him as "Lois", not "Louis". The man is far more stylized than everyone else, who are drawn in a more semi-realistic way.
