* Jabba the Hutt was a crime boss, so the Hutts became an ''entire species'' of crime bosses.

* Jabba the Hutt was a crime boss, so the Hutts became an ''entire species'' of crime bosses. The word Hutt itself was originally intended to be a title, akin to the real-world Don, before it was reappropriated as the name of his species.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'': Consistently subverted, which sets the tone for the new EU. Aliens from minor races consistently show up and act nothing like their representatives from the movies. Watto was a Toydarian slaver and ruthless businessman; the Toydarians in the series are a peace-loving kingdom with philanthropy written directly into their constitution. The Twi'Leks are portrayed as a normal people (even though their homeworld is under siege during the series), and not a single dancing girl shows up. No Rodian we see is a bounty hunter, and while they almost support the Separatists, they are simply trying to survive in a galaxy gone mad. The Besalisk, the race of the Diner owner Dexter from Attack of the Clones, is represented in series by Pong Krell, who is a lot more fit, aggressive, and hard tempered than the friendly Dexter. Even the Mandalorians, the most infamous ProudWarriorRace PlanetOfHats from the old EU, get some of this. They are actually pacifists, having kicked out all the war-mongering crazies a few decades before the Clone Wars. The Deathwatch still acts like old Mandalorians, but they're an organization united by the fact that they want to act like old Mandalorians, so they're not a normal example.

*** Although we meet a group of homeworld quartzes (mostly Amethysts, a few Jaspers and [[TheRuntAtTheEnd one runt Carnelian]]) [[spoiler:[[ReassignedToAntarctica guarding the zoo]]]] and they are just as jovial and friendly as our Amethyst, likely meaning the Jasper we know is the odd-one-out personality wise.

* Zig-zagged by the gems in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. We eventually find out gems are made artificially in distinct types ''designed'' to be interchangeable, but are still capable of individuality and the main cast are a bunch of defectors from their Homeworld who are far from typical.

* {{Parodied}} in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''. Drow are supposed to be AlwaysChaoticEvil, but then this character Drizzt Do'Urden came along in the ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' setting, who was a WhiteSheep of the species. [[OverusedCopycatCharacter Drizzt got extensively copied]], leading to the paradoxical circumstance in which ''every Drow'' is a WhiteSheep from an AlwaysChaoticEvil species. (Though ''this'' particular drow is indeed evil.)

* Oscar Mike from ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'' has a very distinctive quirky personality. The various RDC inhabitants of Planet Mike and those who were created after the planet was lost, essentially Oscar Mike's people, all possess personalities similar in varying degrees to that of his. It's justified especially with Planet Mike as it was a literal planet comprised of clones of the exact same guy. True each clone has [[ClonesArePeopleToo branched out to carve their own individuality in some way or another]] for sure, however at its very core, it was still literally a planet of clones.

** Impa was introduced in the [[AllThereInTheManual instruction booklets]] of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI'' and ''ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink'' as Princess Zelda's elderly handmaid who guides Link in rescuing the Princess and saving Hyrule. Her first in-game appearance in ''Ocarina of Time'' makes her a much younger bodyguard for Zelda, but she still has white hair, and she is also portrayed as a member of the Sheikah, a tribe dedicated to protecting the Royal Family of Hyrule. She and the "fellow Sheikah" character Sheik have ninja-like clothes and methods of disappearing. Come ''Breath of the Wild'', and the Sheikah characters inhabiting Kakariko Village ''all'' have white hair regardless of age, a {{Wutai}} culture with heavy ninja influences, and combat outfits very similar to Sheik's. Their distant ancestors also built all the {{Magitek}} buildings and machines scattered across Hyrule 10,000 years ago in order to help defeat Ganon, taking the whole "protect the Royal Family" thing to CrazyPrepared levels.

If the original quirky character manages to stand out from the rest of their people at all, it will often be because they've ''toned down'' their culture's hat to bring their behavior more in line with the ensemble, possibly citing that [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch their species doth protest too much]] and thus turning out to be wearing a [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] for a hat. Conversely, the trope may be partly psychologically [[JustifiedTrope justified]] when a FishOutOfWater wears their hat proudly to uphold their cultural identity while living in a different culture.

culture. Sometimes this trope may also lead to an opposite effect in which it's all the other members of the original character's race who stand out from the original character due to each one being characterized as "original character but X", thus leaving the original member oddly plain in comparison due to him/her only having the "generic" traits of the race without any other gimmicks to show.

* Female Twi'leks are all {{Beautiful Slave Girl}}s because of Oola from ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', and males are all criminals because of Bib Fortuna, Jabba's majordomo. Also created the dichotomy that while Female Twi'leks tend to be more seductive and beautiful, male ones tend to be rather ugly, especially if they are evil. And because Bib Fortuna fell victim to Luke's mind trick (nothing to be ashamed of, because at this point Luke is quite powerful) has many things classify Twi'leks as being WeakWilled, due to Obi-wan's earlier line about it working better on the feeble minded. Jabba calling Fortuna a "weak minded fool" probably didn't help.
