* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' suffered seriously from this. The first two seasons have a consistent art style, but all the others suffer from dozens of different art styles (especially in the fillers). Some of them do make the characters look better (in an almost {{moe}}-like fashion), but some of them are just horrible. Sometimes the body parts get out of proportion, sometimes the face-lines are way too exaggerated (making the characters seem to be pretty sleepy), and sometimes the girls' breasts are randomly enlarged/shortened. Bakura suffered a little less than some, since he stayed out of all the fillers, but still had quite a change from his first appearance to later episodes.

Yugi suffers the worst from this, due to his AnimeHair.


Added DiffLines:

** The Winged Dragon of Ra suffered this horribly in Season 3, though it wasn't so bad in other seasons (though still not up to its Season 2 appearances).
** Even in the better animated first seasons, the Millennium Ring's points are inconsistently sized.


Added DiffLines:

* After the largely consistent animation seen in ''AnimeYuGiOhZEXAL'', this trope returned with a vengeance in ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'', with inconsistent animation that was often dependent on how good an episode in close proximity was.
** When hand-drawn, Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon suffers immensely from this due to its challenging proportions.
** Episode 12 was a huge step down, despite being a rather important one as Yuya was dueling Reiji for the first time. The following episode was far better.
** Episode 35 was an infamous example after the excellence of episode 34, particularly since it was supposed to emphasize that Yuya and Yuto had the same face, but the animation made them look rather different.
** Similarly, the excellent 45 was followed by the below-average (and containing an extensive CG monster) 46.
** Season 2's animation quality dropped, possibly due to the animators having to work on ''Anime/YuGiOhTheDarkSideOfDimensions''.

* A lot of YaoiGenre in general suffer from bad anatomy (due to low standards), so much that the term [[http://yaoihands.tumblr.com "yaoi hands"]] was created.

*** Studio Pierrot has a tendency to make Sakura's hair off-model compared to the manga. In ''Shippuden'' often it's too short but sometimes it's too long. This is noticeable in the final episodes. Compare Sakura in the manga and the anime. You'll find her hair is too short in the episode based on the second-to-last chapter. In that same episode, they also botched [[spoiler:Sasuke poking Sakura on the forehead]] by making Sakura look a bit off-model and making [[spoiler:the poke itself]] too short.

Added DiffLines:

*** The scene where Sakura cries over Sasuke's DisneyDeath is well-animated and features an AnimationBump, but even it is off-model. Sakura's tears somehow fall onto his face when she's crying on his chest. The angle isn't right for the tears to fall onto his face.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** [[Memes/{{Naruto}} Several memes]] stem from the show ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. Several major battles suffer from strikingly different (though not necessarily lower quality) animation. As well, most of the episodes afterwards (the [[FillerArc Filler Arcs]]) suffer from poorer animation. The reason for this is that the show, at any given time, has more than a dozen studios producing the animation. Many dedicated viewers can identify different studios just by the drawing of characters.
** One of the good things about the dub (and most foreign broadcasts in general) is that they always use the redone version to avoid the often craptacular moments (especially individual frames) of off-model animation, like one where [[http://i.imgur.com/8GOpT4Y.jpg Naruto was depicted without his head]]. But when that does happen, at least [[MemeticMutation Naruto looks kinda cool]].
** The team responsible for the major fight in the Valley of the End has wildly inconsistent character design. What is lost is gained in the fact that their animation makes for some of the fastest, most fluid fights in the series.
** A good example of OffModel animation in the anime version of Naruto and Sasuke fight at Valley Of The End has to be the face Sasuke makes when Naruto hits him in one scene as well as that one scene where Naruto's clones act as missiles. Notice how stretched out and fishlike their faces are.
** The ''manga'' has one major example in chapter 430, where the artist had to submit the chapter when some pages had ''[[http://read.mangashare.com/Naruto/chapter-430/page008.html a full stage of the drawing process left]]'' to keep up with his schedule. Thankfully, this was cleaned up for the volume release.
** The Pain Invasion arc is nearing its end at episode 167. Episode 167 is by far the best combined example of AnimationBump and OffModel (because the animation style used is meant for extremely fluid motion, which helps in the fight scenes it's used in) the series has ever seen. That didn't stop [[http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/001/012/057/71d.gif this moment]] from becoming a source of criticism, though.
** Also noteworthy was the unnaturally-drawn style of Hinata's hair--a surreal neon blue with foggy highlights (as opposed to clear white), and her HimeCut seemed to be one big chunk with no visible lines distinguishing the individual hairs, as though it was the plastic-molded hair of a cheap action figure.
** Kushina's eyes and hair were darker in her initial appearance before the proper colors were shown in the manga, though this was later corrected.
** Gamahiro, one of Jiraiya's toad summons, changes color after his first anime appearance as well.
** One episode had Sakura look like Jay Leno for one frame.
** In a single frame of episode 30 (which was an AnimationBump episode, by the way) from the original Naruto anime, ''[[http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/040/176/1188668095499.jpg Sasuke can see you!]]''
** One tree-leaping sequence in episode 92 had Naruto animated upside down by mistake, making him look like he was somehow floating in the air with leaping motions.
** In ''Shippuden'' episode 347, whilst being tripped by Kushina's chain, the Kyuubi is shown [[http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2012/033/b/f/kyuubi_with_10_tails_by_ari_chaan-d4ofp9g.png with 10 tails]].
** The [[EldritchAbomination Ten-Tailed Beast]] has a fair share of problems with its eye. Most of the time it's drawn correctly, but sometimes it's drawn as a purple Rinnegan instead of the usual red 6-tomoe'd 2-row Sharingan, and even at one point in 365 it's drawn without a pupil and its tomoe wildly misplaced.

Compare Sakura in the manga and the anime. You'll find her hair is too short in the episode based on the second-to-last chapter.
** Towards the end, the animated rendition of the scene where [[spoiler: Rock Lee closes [[DiesWideShut the dead Neji Hyuuga's eyes]] ]] [[http://cassietotallyjust.tumblr.com/post/167269500403/vampireapologist-kouha-favorite-scene-in is completely ruined]] when [[spoiler: Neji's eyebrows ''literally'' disappear after Lee does this.]]

** ''Manga/{{Boruto}}'':
*** The first intro has a revised version because in the original version the characters weren't running correctly. Team 7 was just running upright with their arms behind them, not actually in the correct position.
*** The third intro is very off-model. The animation is rather low-quality and some things just look off (such as Boruto spinning in the air).

** The ''Sun & Moon'' seasons make heavy use of smear frames, particularly on Ash, in keeping with the DenserAndWackier tone. This has a tendency to look ''really'' odd if you pause at just the right moments.

This has a tendency to look ''really'' odd if you pause at just the right moments. This was used as justification by certain people who didn't like the new art style at first as to why ''Sun & Moon'' was going to be a disaster.

** Whilst the last season of Yu-Gi-Oh! (KC Grand Prix and Memory World) had some questionable animation in some of the episodes, episodes 5 and 11 of the Duelist Kingdom arc have what has got to be some of the ugliest animation of the entire series. Character movements are either minimal, jerky, both (In 11, a scene of Jounouchi searching through his deck for a card has one frame of animation on loop for a couple of seconds) or sometimes exaggerated, character expressions rarely go past dull surprise, and the character designs are also slightly off the mark.The duels for these episodes have some ATK/DEF graphics that aren't present in other episodes, and there are a couple of small animation/art errors as well (E.G. episode 5, when Yugi explains about Summoned Skull's power boost, the cards artwork is flipped for some bizarre reason). A bunch of screencaps for these episodes, taken from the HD remastered version, can be found here: [[http://blog.livedoor.jp/maxut/archives/43054700.html episode 5]] and [[http://blog.livedoor.jp/maxut/archives/43661012.html episode 11]]

** One flashback scene in the ''Black & White'' season shows a young N talking to Ghetsis. While the scene is drawn well, Ghetsis appears to be wearing the outfit he wears in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' rather than his original ''Black & White'' outfit, even though this scene takes places years before the events of that game.
