* If a certain body type, hair color, or so on is a source of AuthorAppeal for a film director, illustrator, or so on, this will tend to crop up a lot in their work. Even if they don't explicitly admit it in an interview, once a director casts every woman in every one of his films as a busty, 18-35 blonde (for example), it'll start to become obvious.

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': Keronians are a borderline case, since they come in a rainbow of colors and a few even throw out the humanoid build. Thankfully all Keronians have their own personal symbols.

** Then there's ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'', which in the early days had only twelve different masks for the entire population of Mata Nui, and later possibly the entire universe. Virtually every mask introduced after the beginning was a one-off for the characters on whom they were used, with very rare exceptions, while almost everyone else still just had the same original twelve. Also, underneath the masks? The same four or five head pieces, further exacerbated by the first film trilogy which made all the heads the same -- but at least background extras weren't "allowed" to wear the same mask types as the main characters.

** Where the series really runs headlong into this trope is in the many, many [[VictimOfTheWeek random people]] around the cast who drop dead of various murder schemes, and their friends and family who may or may not have done it. As of this edit there are more than 500 episodes in the anime and over 700 chapters in the manga... and the typical one or two episode case introduces a minimum of 4 to 6 one-shot characters. That is a ''lot'' of people to make up, so it's no wonder they all start to look the same.

* Ufotable's work for the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' suffers greatly from this, even with non-affiliated artists creating the character designs. Look at [[VideoGame/TalesOfXillia Alvin]] and [[VideoGame/TalesOfZestiria Zaveid]], or [[VideoGame/TalesOfXillia Milla]] and [[VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria Velvet]], for example.
