* ''ComicBook/MillieTheModel'' often consciously imitated the ComicBook/ArchieComics style and had many of the same artists, including Dan [=DeCarlo=] and Stan Goldberg. Unsurprisingly, the feature often shared this trope with Archie as well.

* This is a very common complaint about the female character designs in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', especially where facial structure is concerned. If not for the differing skin/hair/eye colours, about 90% of the female characters would be identical in appearance.

You know it's bad when Batgirl and M'gann or Dinah and Cassie look like they could be siblings as civilians.

Added DiffLines:

** Jack Kirby had four basic categories of faces: Heroic Adult Male, Heroic Juvenile Male, Heroic Female (aka Juvenile Male with Long Hair), and Kill It With Fire. There ''was'' some variety among the Kill It With Fire crowd; Thing looked nothing like Desaad who looked nothing like Dan Turpin; each of them was hideous in his own distinctive way.

Added DiffLines:

As the page quote implies and the length of this section proves, this is a common situation in anime, especially for female characters. However, each show/verse tends to have its own distinct face-style, with more dramatic differences between certain studios and character designers. It's hard to market a new series if the characters look too generic, but having dramatic differences in simplistic face designs within the same show can be [[UncannyValley distracting]].

** It doesn't help that current artists are redesigning characters who originally subverted this trope to fit it to a tee. Bunnie and Sally in particular had rather original designs before gradually being slowly retooled to look only slightly refined from standard games characters such as Cream and Marine.

** Shinichi and Kaitou Kid are deliberately drawn alike, and have [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend not-girlfriends]], Ran and Aoko, who could be identical twins as well. Indeed in some non-canon movies this allows Kid to pass himself off as Shinichi whenever needed, without requiring a special disguise

** Generally speaking, Oda's good a creating unique {{Gonk}} or otherwise average/cute female faces which are "allowed" to have odd little quirks, like [[PerkyGoth Perona's]] unique big black eyes and round head. But when he goes for conventionally attractive ladies, he tends to make Nami or Robin clones. Now they ''are'' distinguishable, but each one of them noticeably take something or the other from Nami or Robin, whether it's hair, eyes, head shape, etc. In Nami's camp we have; Nami herself, Vivi, Conis, Keimi, Bonney, Shirahoshi, Rebecca, Kaya, Scarlett. As for Robin, there's; Robin herself, Alvida, Hancock, Baby 5, Viola, and even Tashigi has some Robin-esque features after the Timeskip. Although, all in all, what really makes them look alike is the fact they all have the same body shape too.

** Technically untrue. While the character models are mostly the same, every idol has a different eye shape (For example: Takane has [[Tsurime Eyes]], while Yayoi has [[Tareme Eyes]].), and the faces become longer the older the idol is. (So an older idol like, say, Azusa has a longer face than a younger idol like Iori or Ami.)
