* Hiccup and Toothless in ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' and ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon2''. Both are crippled with a limb which is fixed on a prosthetic. Both are smaller than their compatriots, fitting WeakButSkilled and even share similar fun-loving, snarky personalities. By the end of the second film, [[spoiler: the scrawny Hiccup inherited the title Chieftain of Berk from his massive father to become the leader of his people while the lithe Toothless challenged Drago's colossal Bewilderbeast and succeeded, becoming the Alpha and leader of ''his'' people.]]
** The other dragon riders of Berk also ride dragons that resemble them both in appearance and personality: slender and fierce Astrid rides a Deadly Nadder, portly and gentle Fishlegs rides a Gronckle, boastful but cowardly Snotlout rides a Monstrous Nightmare, and the rude HalfIdenticalTwins Ruffnut and Tuffnut ride a two-headed Hideous Zippleback. [[spoiler: In the TV series, Stoick the Vast gets to ride a Thunderdrum dragon, just as stocky and stubborn as him.]]

* Taronga Park Zoo in Sydney, Australia had the You Belong In The Zoo billboards. A long-beaked bird with a coloured crest would be staring through its cage at a long-nosed youth with a punk mohawk hairdo, or a gorilla staring at a hairy man with protruding jaw and thick lips.

* ''ComicBook/BouleEtBill'': one gag involved Boule & Bill making fun of various dogs and their owners that play this trope very straight, until at the end they see a Chihuahua approach them and think this will be the ultimate example of the trope, only for the trope to be averted when the chihuahua’s owner turns out to be a tall, muscular man that doesn’t resemble his pet at all.

* Played with in ''Manga/KomorisanWaKotowarenai'' where Ootani ends up adopting a cat that resembles Komori. It was originally going to be played straight since Komori's sister wanted to adopt it, but their mother is allergic to cats (and is more of a dog person).
