** The tie-in storybook based on the sequel had Holly Shiftwell actually smashing apart an entire clock face while attempting to fly out of Big Bentley during the climax (in the actual movie, she only smashed apart the "5" during her escape), while Professor Z was still wearing his monocle after being captured and arrested by Finn McMissile (in the actual movie, Z actually lost his monocle while attempting to escape from McMissile, and said monocle was presumably destroyed when McMissile blew up Z's battleship, Tony Trihull).

* The official website for ''DinosaurTrain'' apparently described Deinonychus as having feathers on his body, but the show's artwork [[ArtisticLicensePaleontology didn't show]] ''[[ArtisticLicensePaleontology any]]'' [[ArtisticLicensePaleontology feathers on his body at all!]]

** Also, [[http://pokememes.memebase.com/2011/10/19/pokmon-someone-should-be-fired/ there is a illustration]] in which Piplup is labeled correctly, but Charmander is labeled as "Treecko", Mew as "Shinx", and Chikorita as ''"Croagun."''

All completely different looking Pokemon. That last one isn't even spelled right, it's a misspelling of Croagunk. The mind boggles how this happened.

* The music video for the song "Pokerap" from the [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} ''Pokemon'' anime]] showed Poliwag when the song mentioned Poliwrath, and Geodude when it mentioned Graveler.

* In ''TheMightyThor'' #499 Thor is in Asgard with three characters named Kim, Annie, and Sylvia. Then Sylvia goes missing... or at least they talk about her going missing but the artist kept drawing her into the panel! Kim's hair and outfit change from panel to panel as well.

** The anime episode guide in the official Pokemon website for some reason had some of the screenshots shown in the wrong episodes!

* A tie-in storybook, ''A Tale of Two Brothers'', based on Disney's ''Disney/TheLionKing'' focusing on Mufasa's childhood for some reason described his father Ahadi as having brown fur, a black mane, and green eyes (just like Scar, the series' would-be BigBad), but the illustrations show him with gold fur, a brown mane, and brown eyes, like Mufasa.

* Lampshaded in ''VideoGame/Stinkoman20X6'', where Harvax XVII, a boss for some reason is actually described in the Stinkomanual as a "small but speedy octopus", but the boss actually resembles a large gangster robot. He even points out the error by saying, "This description is ALL WRONG!" The description DOES fit an actual enemy (an octopus robot that was not covered in the Stinkomanual) encountered in the game and the rest of the enemies in the previously mentioned level consist mostly of FlyingSeafoodSpecial.

* The toy version of DJ from ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' for some reason has blue stripes on his body unlike the green ones he had in the movie. Adding to this was the fact that his official artwork (which was extremely film-accurate) is actually shown on the toy's blister package. Later versions of the toy show him in his correct colors, but unfortunately, those were actually variants (Impounded DJ, lenticular eyes DJ, and metallic DJ). It wasn't until the release of a Toys "R" Us-exclusive toy set, as well as a UsefulNotes/{{Walmart}}-exclusive 4-pack in which "classic eyes" DJ was actually shown in his correct colors.
** Happened in a different way with the "Drift Party Mater" (based on Mater's final form at the end of ''Tokyo Mater'') toy from the [[PixarShorts ''Cars Toons'']] toyline, where the toy version of said character was correct, but the artwork showed Mater ''before'' the drift race began. Another infamous example would be the toy of a DJ-lookalike, which for some reason, showed ''Mater's'' picture instead.

No actual relation to UnreliableVoiceover or UnreliableNarrator, despite the title; those are intentional.

intentional. Nor it is about the lack of reliability of using [[http://www.adobe.com/products/illustrator.html a certain vector graphics software]].

** Justified with the ''Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures'' novel, ''Original Skin'', which introduces the companions Chris and Roz, and has internal illustrations so readers get an idea of what they look like. For much of the book, Chris - from a future where eccentric body modification is the norm - looks like a giant teddy bear, but actually drawing him like that would run counter to the point, so he's shown in his unbeppled human form.
