* Initially played straight with ''Franchise/MonsterHigh'' (although the dolls did have different face molds) until the release of Nefera De Nile's doll, which has a taller mold as she is older than the rest.

* {{Parodied}} and {{exaggerated}} in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance's'' ''WorldOfWarcraft'' parody. At one point, Riff complains to Torg that he has a TwentyBearAsses quest that requires killing only female slime blobs and he can't figure out how to distinguish them. A little later when Zoë is trying to create a character, she complains to Torg about the difference between the way the male and female characters look -- all the female versions are scantily clad and have the same exact generically sexy figure with a different head, even the ugly Jigants ([[ButterFace and the females still have the same Jigant face]]). Upon realising this, Torg becomes GenreSavvy enough to be able to advice Riff, and after hearing his advice, Riff wonders why the hell [[FailedASpotCheck he didn't notice]] it sooner that while most slime blobs are just blobs, some of them have that blob for a head atop the same old bikini'd sexy female body.

* ''{{VideoGame/Overwatch}}'': Zarya (a female bodybuilder) and Orisa (a large, quadrupedal ''robot'') were specifically designed to avert this trope. To a lesser extent, so does Mei, as she is short and somewhat chubby. But the majority of female characters in the game play the trope straight: D.Va, Mercy, Sombra, Symmetra, Tracer, and Widowmaker are all slender, conventionally attractive women with long, graceful legs and trim waists. Even characters like Pharah, who has yet to be seen without body armor, and Ana, an older woman who wears layers of body armor and a flowing cloak, seem to have the same general body type as the other women in the game.

* Most of {{Franchise/Barbie}}'s friends have the exact same body shape as her, which is especially odd since ''no real women do.''
* Toys/{{Bratz}}.
** It even carried over to the animated cartoon. To the point that when one of the male characters disguises himself as a girl, he has ''exactly'' the same body shape as the female characters.

* True of almost all female champions in free to play MOBA game ''VideoGame/{{League of Legends}}''. Despite the large number of playable women, they have only one Barbie-like body type with the exception of a few chibi-style dwarf/imp/child characters. Male champions' bodies vary significantly, though a large portion is dedicated to the muscle man type.
** ... until the release of Illaoi.

* 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.

* This was enforced by Creator/{{Hasbro}} for ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}''. The creator wanted more diverse designs amongst the characters. Due to the fact the series was made [[MerchandiseDriven made to advertise dolls]], the characters had to have similar models. The [[ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms comic book reboot]] completely does away with this and has a CastOfSnowflakes.

Added DiffLines:

* Downplayed in ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', while quirks can create some monstrous or otherwise outlandish appearances in some people, at most a girl will usually be a CuteMonsterGirl. (An exception is Habuko Mongoose, who has a realistic snake head, but she only appears in a side chapter.)


Added DiffLines:

* Partially justified due to the animation style of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', in general males have three body types, muscular, stocky and average, while female bodies all look mostly the same with height and breast size being the only major difference.

Added DiffLines:

* Parodied in ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'', where it's revealed that the females of ''every'' species, [[BizarreSexualDimorphism no matter how diverse the males might be]], look like sexy women with maybe a few MonsterGirl traits added. This causes one group to conclude that humans are secretly abominations, because their males are the only ones to look relatively like their females, only "blobby chicks you wouldn't fuck."

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.
