* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' most of the females share a similar face. The ''ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms'' comic reboot averts this by [[CastFullOfSnowflakes making the designs more diverse]].

* In the Disney fandom this is called "Sameface Syndrome", a phrase which is commonly used as a criticism of face-recycling in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon, often with detractors of ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''. It's likely due to being designed by the same artist however Rapunzel from ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', Ariel from ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', and Anna from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' have similarities. Rapunzel cameos in ''Frozen'' which has lead fans to believe [[StrongFamilyResemblance she is Anna's and Elsa's cousin]], though nothing has been confirmed.

** According to [[http://www.bleedingcool.com/2016/10/22/comics-people-remember-steve-dillon/ an article]] written after his passing, Dillon not only knew about the "Frankface" meme, but was actively trying to fuel it by putting it in everything he drew.

* ''VideoGame/RiseOfTheTombRaider'' is a glaring example, and it's especially grating when contrasted with the rest of its otherwise awesome graphics. The game's female cast has exactly three members (Lara, Ana, Sofia), none of them related by blood, all of them from wildly different backgrounds and origins, and yet all of them look so alike one could be forgiven for thinking they were sisters. The only things that really tell them apart are their clothes and their hair color. The men fare slightly better, with the main cast having unique faces and most of the mooks wearing masks anyway, but Jonah's likeness is recycled for Trinity's soldiers on a regular basis, and the Remnant fighters also tend to look like a nearby cloning facility left its doors open.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed'' and its sequels/spinoffs have about four basic body and face types - and character designer Hisashi Hirai's every work after Gundam Seed (''Anime/HeroicAge'', ''Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor'') features the exact same character designs, arguably due to ''Gundam Seed's'' great success. (Which is a shame because he was quite versatile in his earlier works.) It gets a little absurd when you notice that the only difference between Kazuki from ''Fafner'' and Shinn from ''SEED Destiny'' is eye color. This let him earn his FanNickname and {{Pun}} in Chinese that translates to "bottle neck dog corpse" (which is pseudo-homophonic to the Chinese pronunciation of his name), indicating he cannot get through his design bottle neck and kept using the same face over and over. The 2012 {{Remaster}} of ''Gundam SEED'' is another perfect example. While ''SEED'' was the start of his generic art style, at least the early episodes had the characters with more distinctive features and unique quirks. The remaster completely throws these out in favor of making everyone look as identical as they did in ''SEED Destiny''.

* The ''Webcomic/DumbRWBY'' webcomic takes this to an absurd degree. Not only does everyone (save [[TeamPet Zwei]] and Yatsuhashi) have the same face, but they all have the same constant facial expression. Granted, this is probably [[RuleOfFunny intentional]].

** "Naughty Ninjas" has the boys starting a ninja club to keep homeless people away from Kenny's house. Cartman tries to convince everyone Kyle shouldn't be in the club and tries to discuss it with the others but he keeps confusing everyone because most of them look the same with their hoods on (the exceptions being Cartman due to his size, Token and David because of their skin tones, and Jimmy who has his crutches).

** It wasn't much better previously, really. The worst of this in Araki's old style comes through in Part 3, as ''three'' of the main characters - Jotaro, Kakyoin, and Polnareff - are virtually only distinguishable due to their different hairstyles and outfits.

** ''Dead or Alive 5'' (and afterwards) made a point of giving the female cast different face models, which siblings most closely resembling each other, finally catching up, and advertised the fact.

** ''Dead or Alive 5'' (and afterwards) made a point of giving the female cast different face models, which siblings most closely resembling each other, finally catching up, and advertised the fact. It also introduced Marie Rose, who, being a TokenMiniMoe (a first for the series), looks ''noticably'' different from everyone else.
