* ''WebVideo/JackSepticEye'', ''WebVideo/{{Markiplier}}'' and ''WebVideo/ThomasSanders'' all play at least four different characters on their own, leading to fanart having this.

* Ignoring the {{expy}} nature of most of the side characters from ''Manga/SailorMoon''--imported from ''Manga/CodenameWaSailorV''-- Creator/NaokoTakeuchi really only has about six faces for all her series: The deep male, the innocent male, the mature female, the innocent female, the cheery female, and the nondescript either. And even the mature vs. innocent looks are often blurred during mature moments, and vice-versa. A good example is [[http://mangastyle.net/images/artbook1/sailormoon-artbook-1-27-28.jpg this]] - everyone's wearing similar facial expressions and a face swap should lead to near identical results. Male characters do look very similar, this is more blatant with Ao no Sapphire, who not only has the standard young male face, but his hair is almost the same in style and color as Mamoru's, just a with a very slight wave and [[PurpleIsTheNewBlack stylized more bluish]]. In some parts of the manga, where the hair of both guys in black (The manga is in [[DeliberatelyMonochrome black and white]]) is very hard to distinguish them if it wasn't by Sapphire's black moon mark in the forehead. It's also why Haruka's {{Bifauxnen}} look is so convincing, as she's given the "young man" facial structure.

* Takako Shimura, mangaka of works such as ''Manga/AoiHana'' and ''Manga/WanderingSon'', even admits that she always draws works where the characters don't look very different (which means many characters from different series look like characters from other series). When the only apparent differences between girls and boys are hairstyle and clothes, it's not exactly surprising that Nitori can easily pass for a girl just by putting on a hairband. ArtEvolution comes into place by middle school in ''Wandering Son'' and fixes the issue but some characters, like Kanako and Nitori, still look pretty similar.

* Aside from Shouko, Shoya, and Tomohiro many ''Manga/KoeNoKatachi'' characters look alike. It's especially common with background characters, to the point where there was a controversy about the final chapter in whether a female character [[OldFriendNewGender was an older, male]] character.

* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'''s debug builds have only two faces, as a result of having only two character models (Yandere-chan's for the girls and Senpai's for the boys). The dev wants to avert this in the final game, and has given some students unique features (The Student Council members have their own eye shapes, and several attempts have been made to give Mai Waifu TaremeEyes).

** Generally a criticism of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''. The game's engine meant that faces tended ot to have much variation, and didn't emote much. ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' fixed these problems, [[BrokenBase although fans still found fault with it]].

* Creator/AdamEllis was accused of copy-pasting faces and expressions in his work while still at Buzzfeed, to the point that he would lampshade it in his own comics (ie, complaining about recolored sprites in video games to an identical but recolored Adam). Since leaving Buzzfeed, he's gotten better about not copy-pasting (he's no longer on a tight deadline and can work at his own pace), but his art style does suffer from same-faceness sometimes.

* ''WebOriginal/SanrioBoys'' runs into this, in part from the art style borrowing from typical Shoujo manga aesthetics. Of the main boys, two of them have a half-lidded "serious" face, while the other three have a round, bright-eyed "playful" face. While this is downplayed somewhat in the blogs by depicting them with a wide variety of expressions, this is emphasized in the anime and visual novel adaptations, which standardizes their appearances.

* Creator/KyotoAnimation has been running into this problem as of late. After the runaway success of ''Manga/KOn'', many characters of their later anime like ''{{Literature/Hyouka}}'', ''Anime/TamakoMarket'', and ''Literature/SoundEuphonium'' uses the same basic facial model for the girls ''and'' the boys. Their styles are actually different between anime when you compare them, but they're still very similar to the casual eye which has made many people mistake Kyoto Animation for only having one art style.

* {{Hentai}} manga artist Gunma Kisaragi suffers from this ''big'' time when it comes to his female characters. Aside from breast size & accessories, (i.e, glasses, hairstyles, etc.) every female character has the exact. ''Same. Face.'' The fact that his widely-praised art style is rarely critiqued makes matters worse, as it gives him little incentive to diversify designs.[[note]]To be fair, he's ''very'' good at designing unique school uniforms.[[/note]]

* In relation to Charles Schulz' style, this trope makes the much advertised [[TheReveal reveal]] of the Little Red-Haired Girl's face in ''Film/ThePeanutsMovie'' unintentionally humorous: after all the build-up, she looks just like all the other kids, albeit with a slightly smaller nose.
