* Just about any illustrated version of ''TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' will depict Lucy with dark hair, even though she's described as "always [[HaveAGayOldTime gay]] and golden-haired" in the last chapter of ''The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe''. The fact that live-action adaptations also tend to give her dark hair may be related to this.

* Nearly half of the character illustrations for ''FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'' and ''[[FinalFantasyTacticsA2 A2]]'' show members of a class with equipment they can't equip without a special ability obtained as another class, if at all. They're probably [[WhatCouldHaveBeen concept art pieces made before the game mechanics were finalized]], so there are a lot of inconsistencies with the final builds of each game. The most blatant (visible in the head closeup, which is what 90% of in-game character portraits are) is the Fighter portrait wearing a metal helm, even though they cannot equip heavy armor.

** The novelization of "The Battle for the Badge" represents the fight between Ash's Pidgeotto and a Rhydon as a fight between a Pidgeot and a ''[[TheyJustDidntCare Nidoking]]''.

* Read the ''Avengers / Transformers'' crossover and see how many times the illustrations don't match the text. The worst is when they can't correctly label the characters. Second-worst is when Cap doesn't know what an F-15 looks like. By the time you're halfway through, its safe to say TheyJustDidntCare.

* ''TheRailwaySeries'': the main original illustrator, Reginald Dalby, [[TheyJustDidntCare really didn't care]] about a kids' book that [[ItWillNeverCatchOn would be forgotten in ten years]]. He annoyed {{worldbuilding}} author Reverend Awdry with inaccurate settings, oddly proportioned characters, and Henry being drawn interchangeably with Edward and Gordon. Dalby quit after a note from Awdry telling him not to make Percy look like a "green caterpillar with red stripes."

** The weapons depicted in the ''Player's Handbook'' look plain ridiculous. And not just the inherently absurd, made-up ones like the Dire Flail, either - it's pretty clear the illustrator has never even seen a perfectly ordinary sword or war axe. Apparently [[TheyJustDidntCare he was too busy]] to spend five minutes googling for references.

** Or like in one episode, Michelangelo had been captured but it didn't stop two of the turtles from wearing orange in two different shots. Even when it mattered to the plot, TheyJustDidntCare.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' books were ''full'' of these, though most of the time, it was due to the editors not being familiar with the story, and not knowing which already rendered promotional image goes where. The most common error was depicting the wrong [[MaskOfPower mask]], or using movie stills that didn't match the captions, but the most infamous and baffling mistake has to be the [[CoversAlwaysLie cover art]] of the book titled ''Dark Hunters'', featuring characters who had nothin to do with the titular organization. These can be classified as printing errors, though, being the mistakes of unreliable editors. The ''BIONICLE: World'' book, on the other hand, was illustrated with brand-new images, some of which ''did'' suffer from unreliable illustrators. For example, the being Karzahni, described as a black and gold colored, dark and empty-eyed freak, turned into a blue and green monstrosity, with brightly glowing yellow eyes.

** 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.
