** A joke in "The Sweaters" had one of the [[StylisticSuck badly-animated]] background characters in Richwood Stadium take a tennis ball to the face, then topple over like a cardboard cutout. A sketch in "The Extras" revisits them, showing that they're ''all'' cutouts that can move back and forth, but have their body parts stuck in the same relative position. This proves extremely inconvenient for the two the sketch focuses on as they attempt to eat and watch the game. Eventually, one realizes tries to move, which succeeds and grants him depth [[FantasticRacism and the ire of those around him]].

Teri the bear, a character from ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'', is a crumpled paper cutout. She changes cutout of a teddy bear. Her clothes and sometimes facial expression face are drawn onto her, and she can change either with a pencil.pencil. Most of her body is a flat object that moves in 3D space, but her face is like an AnimatedTattoo on her head.
** Wilson Bilson is also pencil on paper, but animated much differently than Teri. His entire ''body'' is a sketch, animated in two dimensions, which is projected on a background of notepad paper that follows him and contours to the movement of his body. Said sketch is quite slipshod, combining a band leader, male bodybuilder, goth, and female cheerleader, which gives him some rather contradictory personality traits.

* Bill Cipher of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is a ''triangle'', not a pyramid. Whenever he appears, he only has two sides, front and back. [[spoiler: Even when he escapes into the real world and gives himself a physical form, his default is a thin triangular plate.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The final boss in the 1999 PC version of ''SpaceInvaders'' is a black "yeti" creature, like those seen on the arcade game's cabinet artwork. For some reason, the beast is also flat. There's no explanation or anything; it just ''is''.

* VideoGame/{{Descent}} was notable for beeing the first FirstPersonShooter with polygon enemies. This is made possible by all enemies beeing rather edgy StarfishRobots. The (human) hostages, you have to rescue would require too much polygons, so they are made of sprites, like in VideoGame/{{Doom}}. To give theese sprites an appearence of depth, they heigh is scaled, to the angle you watch them. This has the drawback, that they appear, to be absolutely flat, then watched from above or below. The original campaign avoids this, by placing them always in rooms with a low ceiling, but PaperPeople are an often seen graphical glitch in usermade levels.
