* ''Webcomic/{{Blip}}'' uses this during a PensieveFlashback: Partway through Liz's memory of a nasty argument, both K and Mary [[http://blip.rampagenetwork.com/265/ transform into chibis]] and remain that way until the flashback ends. This seems to be indicative that Liz thought they were both acting immaturely, and it's certainly indicative that Liz is [[RashomonStyle deliberately exaggerating]] the events for the benefit of her audience.

An artistic style in anime that is generally considered both "[[{{Kawaisa}} cutesy]]" and humorous, in which a character is rendered in a shorter, rounder form, somewhat resembling a caricature of themselves as a tiny yet plump toddler.

Although most commonly used in parody or as part of promotional material, it can be found in some shows at points of extreme comedy/slapstick, or when characters are seen to be acting extremely "cute" or immature. This use of ArtisticAge can mask the true age of characters, making forty somethings and fourteen year olds seem the same age.

immature.



In older video games with small characters compared to the screen, Super-Deformed style was used mainly to get around graphical limitations so a head size wouldn't be just a single pixel. Some newer games, use a version of this where characters appear super deformed on the TheOverworld or when the camera is far away but in cutscenes, character portraits, and battles they will be depicted with more realistic proportions (for an example, in ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' and ''VideoGame/CaveStory''). See GraphicsInducedSuperDeformed for that.

* The Japanese website for ''GuildWars'' features Gwen-chan and Dr. Boar, chibi versions of the already cute Gwen and the tamable boar. Gwen-chan was eventually included in the game as a miniature, tonic, and AprilFools joke transformation.

2''. It returns in ''Samurai Shodown 6''.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/ArcStyleBaseball3D'', all players have a big head without a nose and a small body. Proportions are exaggerated for distinction purposes and vary depending on whether a character is a normal male, a Macho, a Tall one, a Small one or a girl (which will have a thinner waist, wider thighs and a notable bust). CharacterCustomization lets you choose one of these 5 body builds, all of which are chibi in their own way.
