Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DeadIsland'' uses only a few stock bodies, characters differentiated by their heads, and there are only two bodies for female characters: Little girl and pin-up model. This can create some rather jarring [=NPCs=], especially in the resort area that comprises the first quarter of the game as the women are all in bikinis--you could, for instance, see an old lady with wrinkled skin, a pointed nose, and a mop of gray hair, but she'll have the body of a porn star.

** Later on, they then introduced Marie Rose who looks entirely different from every other girl by virtue of being a TokenMiniMoe.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{VideoGame/Overwatch}}'': Zarya (a female bodybuilder) and Orisa (a large, quadruped ''robot'') were specficially designed to avert this trope. To a lesser extent, so does Mei, as she is short and somewhat chubby. It's generally played straight for most of the other female heroes though.

* In ''VideoGame/MarvelContestOfChampions'', while the male heroes have several different body types (including "Beast" like Hulk, Juggernaut and Abomination, "Heroic" like Captain America, Black Panther and Electro, and "Slim" like Spider-Man) all the females have the exact same body type and PaintedOnPants style clothing. Eventually averted by the addition of Comicbook/SpiderGwen and Comicbook/MissMarvel whose frames are noticeably thinner and smaller than the other female characters', which makes sense as the two are teenagers and the rest are adult women.

Added DiffLines:

* While every character in ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}}'' does have their differing characteristics that this isn't as major of a problem, a majority of of the females do have very similar physical builds that differ by bust size and species. Some exceptions are the fat lady NPC in Half-Genie Hero, the Tan Line Island Princess in Pirate's Curse, and some of the enemies from the collective series.

Added DiffLines:

* Surprisingly averted in the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series. At a distance, all the characters look like recolors of each other, but there are actually subtle differences in the shapes of their faces and bodies. Rouge has wide hips and a large bust, while Blaze has a smaller chest and Cream's body is bell-shaped.

* Michaelangelo didn't have female models readily available, and so used his own body as a template for most of his paintings and several of his sculptures.

* Similarly, the {{DCAU}}'s character designs come in two flavors, generally speaking: Male and Female. This was at its most pronounced throughout ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', particularly the ''JLU'' seasons. The only bodytype differences were made by making the body wider or skinnier (Superman was broader shouldered, but generally had the same proportions as the Flash, and similarly, Wonder Woman was simply a broader-shouldered version of Hawkgirl). Females mostly have the same ''face'', with different hairstyles keeping them distinct. There ''is'' one general exception, in the form of the "Block-shaped" male mold used for Gorillas, Grundy, and other stouter types, but that's about it.

* You can only play a female human, elf, half-elf, or half-orc in ''{{Arcanum}}'' because Troika only had enough time/resources to make one (medium-sized) female model. They try to HandWave this by having the females of the other species be hidden (as with the dwarves) or missing. [[spoiler:The reason you don't see female half-ogres is that they are all held in a containment facility for breeding purposes]].
