23rd Oct: It's time for the Second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest! Details here.
Novice SwordsmanPaper Mario doesn't use any sprites, it uses flattened polygon models. I think the image should be replaced with a more straight example. Any suggestions?
The Eternal FoolHere's a shot from Recettear, where everyone except the player characters and any items are 3D models. I was gonna suggest a pic showing the infamous vintage ham sandwich line◊ from the game, but the dungeon image is clearer.

Xenogears used a mix IIRC. I have no idea where I left my copy of the game though.
The imaginative Christian AspergerWhile the fourth gen of Pokemon demonstrates the trope when it comes to overworlds, I think the fifth gen games demonstrates it better. Perfect screenshot from Pokemon Black and White:

No, the other one.I think #4 is the clearest one. The others look like they could potentially be cell-shaded on a quick glance.
MOVE, B****! GET OUT THE WAY!Recettear immediately came to mind for me. Some of the monsters are 3D polygons reminiscent of PS1 era graphics, and they stand in pretty stark contrast to the 2D sprite characters. I can load up the game dig up some screenshots.

serial tweaker, sorry4 looks good, but what's with that thick border? Is that how the game is actually displayed?
please don't capitalize my handle. I just don't like it.
The imaginative Christian AspergerI had just took the screenshot from the web without any editing besides the resizing to be accepted by the site's image uploader. If you want, I can try to edit it out.

The Eternal FoolTo directly answer the question, no that border usually isn't there.
Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.
The Eternal FoolI would think that most works that employ this trope make it subtle on purpose.
Dragon Writer^ Yes, but how effectively they can execute it depends on the hardware. PS2 (and onward) games can be hard to tell, but it's pretty easy on the PSX or DS since those don't filter textures.

No, the other one.The problem with almost all suggestions is that they don't scale down very well, which is probably why a portable game is better, since there's less scaling down.
Dragon WriterFFT is also an option, but IMO it should be from the PSX original, not the remake, and those are hard to find. (One thing I like about the Breath of Fire IV one I found is if you look closely, you might notice how the characters look slightly out of angle with the camera.)

No, the other one.Sonic kinda works, but not as well as previous suggestion.

Dragon Writer^ That last one does not work at all.
The Eternal FoolMeh. I tried looking up skills that would show it better from Neptunia, but I don't have a DVR and the only YouTube videos I could find used the custom image feature to change the 2D art into the rage face memes, which is against this site's rules.
Anime-ted4, 14.3, and 19.2 are my favs so far.

Dragon WriterThat's ... not too bad, actually. There's obviously a different graphical style between the polygonal monster and sprited party members. Seems cropped a bit tight though.... (Which is the same thing as I liked about the BOF 4 image I found ... the large dragon is clearly a polygonal render while the characters are clearly sprites)

Anime-tedAgreeing with on the pic being good but the cropping looking a bit too tight.
