* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'', Alopex is not an arctic fox (original scientific name: ''Alopex lagopus''). This is because she's a CompositeCharacter of several vulpine females from the franchise; her comics namesake ''is'' one.

* Stumpy from ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' has hands and feet. The original concept had him have stumps instead of hands, but this was changed before the actual show was made.
** It's even more obvious in the French[[note]]The original dub, since the show is from France[[/note]] dub, where his name is Moignon, the French word for "stump" (of a limb).

* In ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall,'' [[BigBad the Beast]] is a HornedHumanoid, but other than that doesn't seem very "beastly," being FauxAffablyEvil and relying mostly on [[ManipulativeBastard manipulation]]. He also has an [[EvilSoundsDeep excellent]] [[VillainSong singing voice]], being played by a professional opera singer.

** Bluestreak is silver, and not blue. Ironically, the Diaclone toy he was redecoed from ''was'' blue, and his packaging art showed him as being blue. Due to trademark problems, he was renamed "Silverstreak" in the 2000's, which fits better. But his thing is that he never shuts up; he talks a blue streak. "Silverstreak" just describes his color and implies that he's fast.

** In "Wilder West," they go to a dude ranch and Milo rides a horse named Psycho who, naturally, goes wild and tries to throw him off. When [[UnfazedEveryman Melissa]] asks if they can get him a calmer horse, the owner replies that Psycho ''is'' their calmest horse. "That's why we named him Psycho--on account of the irony."

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' plays with this, when a DrillSergeantNasty SadistTeacher notes that Curly's hair isn't curly and [[LogicalFallacies demands to know his real name]]. The odd thing is, [[TheCuckoolanderWasRight he's right]]--Curly's real first name is [[EmbarrassingFirstName Thaddeus]].

** Equestria itself is ruled by a pair of princesses, rather than the queens that being called a kingdom would indicate. [[FanWank Fans have come up with many explanations for this situation,]] though the Doylean reason is the existence of two tropes; EverythingIsBetterWithPrincesses and GodSaveUsFromTheQueen.

* Animated short ''WesternAnimation/TheStreet'' has nothing whatsoever to do with a street. It's about an old grandma dying, and how her family deals with it.
