For the month of December we have a new character showcase, but with some very familiar characters.  Please warmly welcome the gang as the antagonists might see them! :bestsharptooth The character showcase topic for this month can be found here.

Also keep in mind that the next season of the fanfic prompt challenge is now open.  We are doing things a bit differently this season and allowing for people to either fulfill a monthly prompt or a suggested prompt during each month.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! :)  The fanfic prompt rules and list of monthly prompts can be found here.

Well, In the TV series there are some I belive.
Littlefoot, Rhett and Ali kind of looks thesame. Same species.
Petire has his siblings, so does Ducky.

And we all know who looks similar in the sequals aswell.

But your question was: "look too similar?
I don't know.   :^.^:

I wouldn't say any of the ones that I have seen look too similar. It's true that Ducky and her siblings look a lot a like, but you don't really see them at all, so it doesn't get too confusing.

Littlefoot and Ret don't look even remotely alike.  Ret has some weird skin on his head and above his eyes that Littlefoot doesn't and I think Ret doesn't have his third color stretching out like Littlefoot's is.

The only ones that may look to similar are Ducky's sibblings, who are only really seen in the background and such like that.  Ali looks pretty similar to Littlefoot, at least to me.

Fair enough.
But, is there really any characters that look too alike?
I mean, it wasn't that hard to tell who was Ali and who was Littlefoot in LBT IV?
And true, it's not often you see Ducky's siblings etc.

In any case, it's nothing that has been bothering me.

True, with Ducky's siblings they have shown some that do look exactly like her, but they are never named, nor given individual voices. At most you hear their voices as background sort of babble so it's hard to get them confused with Ducky.  I've not seen 12 so no idea about how they do Petrie's siblings there, but in the tv episode and at the end of the first movie I think they do look different from Petrie, or different enough to not get them confused.

I personly had no problem to tell Petrie from his siblings in LBTXII. (But I should not speak for everyone, ofcourse not.  :) )
Not only by appearence, but also by voice.
In swedish they sound so cool!  :lol

I didn't have a problem telling Petrie from his siblings in the tv episode The Days of Rising Water.    I guess if they gave Ducky's siblings individual voices they'd always draw & color hers different then the way she looks.

So far I haven't seen any two characters (that is dinosaurs with a speaking role) which looked so alike that I got confused about who was who. As far as I am concerned this makes them different enough.
However, I have been thinking a lot about a story about Ducky and one of her twins who looks and sounds so identical that only Spike (who can't tell anyone) can tell the two apart :lol

That is an interesting idea.  I sorta did that with my oc of Diver, but not fully.  They do look exactly alike but if one of them is talking you can tell the difference since they talk in a similar, but not identical fashion.  But another of her siblings who talked exactly like Ducky would be very hard to tell the difference, if it were possible, for anyone not one of their family like Spike is, & one of their own siblings and parents.
