A few of the reviews for An American Tail when it first came out complained about how un-catlike Tiger looked.
Shifu◊ the red panda from Kung Fu Panda, with his huge round ears, more whitish orangey fur, and dark brown hands, is not that easy to identify as a red◊ panda◊, which has medium sized, rounded triangular ears and is more reddish with a black underside and legs.
Zilla, a.k.a., the American Godzilla, is an interesting variation. He's supposed to be a mutated marine iguana, but his physical structure is more akin to that of a theropod dinosaur. Of course, since he is mutated, this might be justified.
Cera from Land Before Time is hardly recognizeable as a Triceratops since she only has one horn.
Poor Ducky. Sources can't decide if she's a Parasaurlophus, an Edmontoaurus, or a Saurlophus since she doesn't really look completely like one or the other.
Likewise, Hyp and his father don't really look much like Hypsilophodons.
The "Yellow Bellies" from The Wisdom Of Friends hardly look like the dinosaurs they're supposed to be either.
Earl Sinclair from Dinosaurs is said to be a Megalosaurus, but looks nothing like the actual dinosaur.
Likewise, his wife Fran is supposed to be an Allosaurus. But, Allosaurus never had that Dilophosaurus-like crest on its head.
Rafiki in The Lion King is stated to be a baboon, but looks like the bastard child of a mandrill and a capuchin monkey.
Zazu from The Lion King is supposed to be a yellow-billed hornbill. And, while he does look like a bird with a yellow beak, he doesn't look much like the bird he's supposed to be.
Jiminy Cricket from Pinocchio is so heavily anthropomorphized that he looks more like a little green man with a rabbit nose and no ears. Animator Ward Kimball, who designed him, admited that "he's a cricket because we say he's a cricket."
Knuckles is an echidna, but because his spikes look more like styled hair, he hardly has a snout, and has a jellybean like nose that's close to face, it wouldn't be too hard to mistake him for a "hedgehog".
King Dedede from the Kirby game series is not readily identifiable as a penguin.
Crash Bandicoot: Crash and Coco don't look much like bandicoots, Tiny the Tiger looks like some kind of big cat, but definitely not a tiger, and Dingodile has a crocodile tail but the rest of him looks like some kind of pig thing, not a dingo.
Tiny Tiger is he apparently was originally intended to be a Tasmanian tiger (an extinct Australian marsupial, not actually a cat) but in the game Crash of the Titans he was redesigned and looks more cat like now. (possibly a case where the game designer Did Not Do The Research)
The Tasmanian Devil and the Tasmanian She Devil from Looney Tunes are brown furred and look nothing like real Tasmanian Devils, which have black fur.
The Roadrunner also looks nothing like it's real-world counterpart. Roadrunners aren't bright purple/blue nor are they the same size as a coyote.
Another example is Hippety Hopper, the baby kangaroo that Sylvester always mistakes for a giant mouse. In Sylvester's defense Hippety does look far more like a giant mouse than an actual kangaroo.
Yoyo Dodo looks nothing like a real dodo.
Batty, the bat in the cartoon, "The Brave Little Bat," looks nothing like a bat, and looks like a mouse with wings instead.
Dizzy Devil (the purple Tasmanian devil), Rev Runner (the red roadrunner), and Gogo Dodo from Tiny Toon Adventures
Wendell T. Wolf from Taz-Mania is supposed to be a Tasmanian Wolf, but he looks more like a miniture version of Wile E. Coyote.
Jake from My Gym Partner SA Monkey is supposed to be a spider monkey but, while obviously a primate of some kind, looks little like the actual species. Lampshaded in one episode that shows his family at the zoo at first appear to look correct but after the humans leave they remove disguises showing they actually look like Jake.
Like Arthur, Cerebus the Aardvark looks little (if at all) like the real-life animal. He looks more like a gray pig-creature than an actual aardvark.
Dagget and Norbit from The Angry Beavers don't look an awful lot like beavers. This is constantly pointed out in the show, as most people assume that they are weasels.
The Tick owns a capybara named Speak (named because he once hallucinated it talking to him) who looks much more like some sort of mutant pug dog; in fact, the Tick was sure Speak was a dog until he took him to the vet.
Snook from It's a Big Big World is supposed to be a sloth, but he looks more like some weird furry creature.
Bob is supposed to be a Tarmandua, a type of anteater, but looks more like a cross between Gonzo and a cat.
The titular Aardvark from The Ant and the Aardvark doesn't look very much like an aardvark, having blue fur, a long snout more like that of an anteater's than an actual aardvark's, and long angularly bent ears.
Jiminy Cricket from Pinocchio is so heavily anthropomorphized that he looks more like a little green man with no ears. Animator Ward Kimball, who designed him, admited that "he's a cricket because we say he's a cricket."
Cyrill Sneer and his son Cedric on The Raccoons are suposed to be aardvarks, but have pink fur and snouts that bend down. The show's creator did this on purpose so kids don't think that real aardvarks are greedy industrialists.
Five hats means that five tropers think it is ready to publish.
You are saying that you think this draft is ready to be published. That means the description is not ambiguous,
it doesn't duplicate an existing trope, there are at least three examples, and the title makes sense.
Is that what you meant to do?
You are saying this draft has a ready-to-publish hat it does not deserve and you are taking it back.
