* Fiona's human form in ''Franchise/Shrek'' stands out against against other humans in the franchise. She is an InkSuitActor of her voice actress, Creator/CameronDiaz. Future humans (including her parents) are less hyper-realistic looking and more stylized.

* ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'', the original [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAm SatAm]] cast looked the same when comic-only cast were adopted, [[FurryFandom many of which were taller and having more humanistic builds]]. ArtEvolution made characters look even more out of places. It wasn't until late 160s issues that the character designs finally becomes FunnyAnimal consistent.

** [[Disney/{{Tangled}} Rapunzel]], unlike all the other Franchise/{{Disney Princess}}es, is actually animated using CGI instead of cel animation, so she often looks very strange when they are all in a group. It also explained why she had to be redesigned when she is greenlighted into the franchise so that she can blend in with the other princesses. The first few waves of Rapunzel merch that used 2D images had a tendency to be...[[http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/20300000/Rapunzel-disney-princess-20380637-1086-1246.jpg creepy]], due to basically being paint-overs of the 3D models. It was especially obvious in the group pictures, where the rest of the Princesses big, anime-style eyes look tiny when compared to Rapunzel's soulless dinner plates. Disney seemed to have realized this though, as her [[http://images.wikia.com/disney/images/e/e5/RapunzelNew.png official redesign]] fits in perfectly now.
** Disney/{{Cinderella}} and [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarves Snow White]] look somewhat less stylized than the other princesses. This is because Snow White was rotoscoped in her film and Cinderella was drawn with a more realistic face compared to other princesses.

now. Unusually, ''Tangled'' was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally meant to look]] traditionally animated (such as with ''WesternAnimation/{{Paperman}}'') so plenty of very early promotional images and especially concept art have her looking Disney Princess typical instead of the uncannier version early merchandise went with.
** Disney/{{Cinderella}} and [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarves Snow White]] Disney/{{Snow White|And The Seven Dwarfs}} look somewhat less stylized than the other later princesses. This is because Snow White was rotoscoped in her film and Cinderella was drawn with a more realistic face compared to other princesses.



** In a world of anthropomorphic sea animals, Judd the cat stands out as the only mammal. [[spoiler:He's actually [[Really700YearsOl a dozen thousand years old]]. He was frozen before humans became extinct and is thus the only surviving land mammal.]]

** When there are celebrity cameos the person is drawn as a FunnyAnimal, however far less cartoony than the others.

* Numbuh 362 (Rachel) from ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' has BrownEyes in a series where almost everyone has BlackBeadEyes.
* One gag of ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheatricalCartoons'' involves 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.

* The Bohrok in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}: Mask of Light'' are more-or-less faithful representations of the original LEGO models, in a movie where every other character has been redesigned to look more organic and less like buildable action figures. They were actually the first characters to be designed for the movie, and ended up having a mere cameo, frozen in ice. The fire drones in the second movie, due to reusing the bodies of the Bohrok, stand out in the same fashion.

** Whereas most {{Bionicle}} beings have tribal-looking masks, robotic faces or animalistic heads, the Piraka have organic faces made out of rubber and bear big toothy, cartoony grins. The Toa Inika stand out in the same fashion, having rubber masks and actual mouth openings, sans Matoro and Kongu, though the latter still stands out for having what seems like a toothy sneer on his mask. InUniverse, this is explained as the unique way the Toa Inika became Toa made their masks organic.

** 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.

* In ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', one of the gym leaders, Cilan, is a polite young man with green hair and... SkintoneSclerae, making him the first and probably only character in the entire franchise to have these.
