Another thing I have noticed is a tendence of some people to express their love for a certain characters by compiling an evolution chart of his/her design.
Like this:

No care if the character is lasting since many years or fewest ones. If there’s a change in his design it’s worth to be told.

Too IRL, for my tastes. Several companies do this to showcase how their products changed over time.

They certainly exist prominently on the Internet, though:

And they’re not only for video games:

Or even fictional characters:

(Actually, a Google image search for “logo evolution” yields a bounty of examples.)

I’m not convinced myself it’s worth an entry, but certainly one could look into it. See also:

Too IRL. Just kidding.

I too have seen this on the internet a lot, I think it should get an entry.

I really like this idea for an entry. Anyone know some of the first that became really popular via the web?

By far this is the most ancient fictional evolution chart I can remember:

I saw one that had the evolution of man, and the last guy was dancing with an ipod
