** Most of the animated cutscenes are heavily off model and colored oddly, so it's compensated with a lot of the action happening in extreme closeups (the opening of ''The Answer'' where [[spoiler:Aigis and Metis are fighting Ken and Akihiko]] is a good example). It's only during static scenes that one notices how off each character is. Yukari's hair is a Schrodinger's Cat that responds to the viewer's moods and atmospheric pressure. One minute it's short-cropped (in-game model, character portrait), another it's shoulder-length (several anime cutscenes), and later still it has become a ''mullet'' (rest of the animated cutscenes.) Ditto for Shinjiro's skin tone, possibly even more so; he has a warm complexion both on his portrait and in-game, but in animated cutscenes, he's sickly pale.

The cast also have fairly odd body proportions, most notably Fuuka, who looks way taller than her 3d model and artwork suggest.

* As a general rule, AmbidextrousSprite is often a cause of this. Two extreme examples would be Sagat in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'', with his scar and eyepatch switching sides, and [[VideoGame/BionicCommando Spencer]] in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', with his large, bionic arm switching sides.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/CelDamage'' :
** The picture of Fowl Mouth shown on the character select screen depicts him with fingers, while his 3D models have no fingers except for thumbs.
** Violet's 2D artworks depict her with a light purple streak in her hair, which her 3D models don't have. One artwork even depicts her with a tail, which her 3D models also don't have. (in the first game, anyway)
** Dominique wears gloves in her 2D artworks and in-game model. Her cutscene model, however, does not.

* Link famously has pink hair in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast''. This later got a nod in ''Tri Force Heroes,'' with an NPC dressed just like Link but with pink hair.

* You can invoke this trope accidentally (or on purpose) in GarrysMod, especially if you use the [=HardWare=] Morph models of VideoGame/TeamFortress2 classes (used in the "Meet the [Class]" video for better graphics).
