* Done intentionally on ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'', with the characters changing appearance between scenes. It seems to fit the mental instability of the show's cast. [[TropesAreNotBad One of few notable cases where this trope is not bad.]] John Kricfalusi has repeatedly stated that if you don't break model to emphasize the character's actions, you might as well be doing live action. It was brought UpToEleven with the release of ''Adult Party Cartoon'', where the characters would ''completely'' change appearance scene to scene (most prominent with Ren). As Creator/JohnKricfalusi put it, "Everybody draws different in Spümcø. And we sort of encourage that. Unless you're going to draw wimpy".

** Trixie originally had a more unique set of flash assets, having a fatter horn, unique eyelashes, and only one catchlight in each eye (a trait normally reserved for stallions), but for whatever reason she was changed to have the standard features of most other mares (compare [[https://derpibooru.org/1068302 Magic Duel]] to [[https://derpibooru.org/1554222 All Bottled Up]]). However she occasionally shifts back to [[https://i.imgur.com/xR0Um9q.jpg "Old Trixie"]], likely as a result of reusing older animations to save time and production costs.

* Like ''Animaniacs'', ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo'' has tons of different animated studios working on it. However, it is still prone to this trope. For example, in the special "Back to Bortron 7", the shape of Jet's hair changes briefly without explanation. And in "Detective Mindy", Mitchell's mouth doesn't move when he says "I will never understand Jet's dog, or is he a cat?"

* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'': A particularly infamous one, at that. In the episode "Into The Wand", Toffee is featured in a panting wearing his war clothes, however, his nipples can be seen through the clothes, which made many fans believe that [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Toffee fought wearing see-through clothes, which included his pants]]. It was later cleared up by the animators that Toffee was shirtless in the scene and that was changed before the release, however, due to a mistake, his nipples were still visible.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheMarvelSuperHeroes'', characters are occasionally shown with incorrect coloring and inconsistency in which character designs from the comics are used. The most notable offenders are Odin and Loki in the ''Mighty Thor'' segments, who frequently change physical appearances between shots.

** Every "shape" in a Flash (or similarly animated show) is a separate object that can be moved, resized, tweened, layered, and set invisible at will, and thus missing body parts like [[https://derpibooru.org/1273660 Earth Pony Sweetie Belle]], extra body parts like [[https://derpibooru.org/696244 Princess Rarity]], or misaligned parts like [[https://derpibooru.org/865202 this nightmarish beast]] are occasionally encountered (many of which [[GoodBadBugs are positively received and become memes]]). Easily the best (and worst) example is when they forgot the rest of Granny Smith in a scene, leaving a disembodied ''thrusting '''[[https://derpibooru.org/521582 unmistakable thing]]''''' in the top right corner.

*** And that episode was already seething with unfinished and poorly drawn animation from the start. With the sewer fight sharing [[http://tfwiki.net/mediawiki/images2/7/7c/ChildsPlay_Starscream%27s_magic_leg.jpg this]] [[SarcasmMode thing of beauty]].
** Then you get the rampant scale issues, where no one seems to remember how big the characters are relative to each other. [[http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/5688/devestatorwut.jpg One could easily excuse most of these]] but then there's the one in the upper middle... (worth noting is that these are probably from the ''same episode'') Also worth noting is that they can't seem to agree on where Devastator's right knee is...

The show never really settles on a consistent size for him besides "very big", causing his relative size to fluctuate wildly, even in the upper middle... (worth noting is that these are probably same episode. In some episodes, he's huge enough to demolish entire buildings in a single blow and hold Optimus Prime in one hand King Kong-style; in others, he's barely twice Megatron's height. His eyes were also apparently a source of grief for the animators, as they keep switching from one large "visor" to two individual eyes, again often within the ''same episode'') Also worth noting same episode.\\
Unicron
is that they can't seem to agree also a victim of odd scaling; in his first appearance in the movie, he's supposedly around the size of Mars, going off of model sheets, but is drawn a ''lot'' smaller much of the time, presumably so other characters aren't rendered indistinct blotches when the scene focuses on where Devastator's right knee is...him. This gets worse in season 3, when his disembodied head (which should be roughly the size of Texas) appears in several episodes and is drawn as ''maybe'' 100 feet tall.

** A rather jarring example is in "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS4E7MargeGetsAJob Marge Gets a Job]]". When at the dinner table and Homer complains about having to see Marge at work as well, when cutting briefly to her ReactionShot and her signature murmur, the way Maggie's mouth looks when sucking her pacifier is, well, [[NightmareFuel horrifying.]]
