* Creator/RumikoTakahashi has a general style for her characters, but they are generally easily differentiated. That is, however, until you compare two of her works side-by-side. Only certain characters, such as [[Manga/UruseiYatsura Ataru Moroboshi]] and [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Genma Saotome & Soun Tendou]] really stand out among the recurring casts.

* Akira Toriyama has designed so many characters that he tends to forget what he's done and hasn't done, and thus will occasionally create the same character multiple times. The most obvious examples: [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger Crono and Lucca]] are [[Franchise/DragonBall Goku and Bulma]] A more obscure, but even more clear example is the star of his children's book "Toccio the Angel", who happens to look almost identical to Majin Buu.

Added DiffLines:

* Boichi from ''Manga/SunKenRock'' has three main actors, Kitano Ken, Tae Seo and the same actress for every girl, this becomes particulary hilarious when you compare Ken to [[Manga/DrStone Senkuu]]. And even more hilarious when you compare Ken to [[Manga/{{Trigun}} Vash]] in the [[DistantFinale Lost Plant]] one-shot, whom Ken is an {{Expy}}. Check the other Boichi works and you'll see even more examples.
