- Straight: Puppy's father is a bipedal beast man, while he is quadrupedal.
- Averted: Puppy and his father are equally as anthropomorphic.
- Inverted: Puppy is bipedal while his father walks on all fours.
- Zig-zagged: Puppy's father is more anthropomorphic then him, but Kitty and her mother are both normal-looking cats.
- Lampshaded: "Hey Puppy, how come your dad has a more human-like build than you?"
- Downplayed: Puppy's father is bipedal, but that's where his anthropomorphism ends.
