* In ''Sketch Artist II: Hands That See'', the only survivor of a SerialKiller-rapist is a blind woman. The titular character manages to create a perfectly detailed sketch (complete with hair color) based on her feeling the guy's face. Naturally, when the murderer is caught and brought to trial, the defense starts raising doubts about the sketch's accuracy... until it's repeated just as perfectly with a random guy off the street.

* Subverted in ''Dark Angel'' when Max is seen stealing medications from a pharmacy in ''Flushed''. Police pictures of her quickly land her in jail--along with about a dozen other women that approximately fit her description. Eventually, they all are released.

* Averted in ''Literature/Incompetence''. Harry's image is placed on Euronews and it looks more like [[Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes Dr Zaius]] than it does Harry.

* Subverted in an episode of ''LawAndOrderSVU'' where a sketch artist is told to draw a man with big, dark shades and a hooded sweatshirt. Both Detective Munch and a lead commented that this looked exactly like the Unabomber.

* Parodied during the end of the movie ''Film/HaroldAndKumarGoToWhiteCastle''. The eponymous Harold and Kumar (who are Korean and Indian, respectively) have committed various crimes in their epic journey to White Castle. During the ending credits of the movie, a news report informs us "Police sketch artists believe the perpetrators to look like this", followed by a picture of two completely, offensively overly-stereotyped Arab and Chinese characters who look nothing like them. Harold and Kumar can be heard laughing at the gross misinterpretation.

** Parodied as well in ''The Simpsons Movie'' similar to ''WrongfullyAccused'' when they are on their way to Alaska and see a wanted poster for themselves. While Marge frantically tries to keep the shopkeeper's attention away from the image, Bart adds weird features to the picture, immediately after which the shopkeeper cries out "Oh my God, there they are!" and a family looking exactly like Bart's modified version of the Simpsons walks in.

* An especially egregious version occurred in 'WesternAnimation/'KimPossible,'' though it didn't involve a human: a small, rice-grain size fragment (from a ''digital reconstruction'' of the crime scene) had the weapon, an exploding golf ball, extrapolated from it.
