* ''VinlandSaga'' is a realistically-drawn series (with a few minor exceptions like Thorkell's hair going Super Saiyan). The Frank king, however, looks like Humpty Dumpty.

Added DiffLines:

* Moguro Fukuzou from ''Manga/LaughingSalesman''. Even within the cartoonish art style, Moguro still stands out among other characters, with his thin red lips, large head, pale skin, stout body, and his never-changing facial expression. This, of course, makes him even more unsettling.

* ''Franchise/TransformersGeneration1'' has the Autobot Mini-Cassettes Grand Slam and Raindance. There have been Transformers that look more robotic than others, and some whose robot modes are animals instead of humanoids, but how many Transformers do you know whose "true" forms are ''vehicles?'' And they're not non-sentient drones, either -- they have personalities like any other Transformer!



** The Ultra Beasts in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' look insectoid, alien, and completely unlike any other Pokémon (whom, incidentally, they're outright considered to be completely separate beings from), and look more like Stands ripped from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''. Of course, that they look like they come from another universe entirely is fitting because... well, [[DimensionalTraveller they do]].

** In ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance Dream Drop Distance]]'', characters from ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' show up, they're not that out of place, but like the Zack example above, their extremely thin style, carried over from their home game looks a bit odd compared to the still stylized, but not to that extreme, Sora and Riku.

** Madame Argentina and Fred, the villains from "I See a Funny Cartoon in Your Future", are not drawn in the show's style, and are instead drawn in the style of Chris Savino, who wrote and directed the episode.

Added DiffLines:

* ''FanFic/TheRWBYLoops'' has a few unique twists in comparison to the more general [[FanFic/TheInfiniteLoops loops setting.]] For one, all loopers on Remnant activate in pairs, which is eventually explained as a result of their unique soul anatomy; for another, an early intervention by a hacker led to three nominally villainous individuals looping, alongside a pet dog and two teachers, which circumvented the usual way loopers were activated and had a number of consequences.

* ''VideoGame/SpookysJumpScareMansion'': Spooky herself and ''most'' forms of Specimen 1 are in a limited and cute-looking art style. This is to trick unaware players in to believing that this is what most of the game looks like, but after being introduced to the various actual horrors inside, Spooky quickly ends up becoming outnumbered and has the odd design out. It's even more apparent when you compare the CuteGhostGirl design of Spooky to Specimen 4, a StringyHairedGhostGirl.
* Isaac's Mom from ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'', in-game[[note]]Cutscenes draw her like any other character[[/note]]. The rest of the game uses a simple, oddly "cutesy" (despite the graphic violence and BodyHorror) way to depict Isaac and the enemies. Mom, however, appears in GrossUpCloseUp, from her overweight leg when fought in battle to the image of her shirtless when using her bra as an item.



** Giffany, another video game character, has a very {{Animesque}} design, since she's meant to invoke the image of a character from a Japanese DatingSim game.

* Penny on ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'' looks ridiculously more realistic than everyone else on the show, who have exaggerated cartoony features. The more realistic/cute look was frequently shared by incidental or single-episode female characters, unless they were MAD agents or intended to by unattractive, in a sort of reverse {{Gonk}} effect. Averted in ''WesternAnimation/GadgetAndTheGadgetinis'', where her design is closer to how everyone else in the show looks.
