It shouldn't be a surprise that sometimes the artwork in a game will bear a resemblance to a celebrity. We expect the Nick Fury card in Legendary to look like Samuel L. Jackson.

But other times there are surprising similarities that crop up accidentally. And occasionally some are so similar that you have to wonder if the artist was doing it on purpose.

Feel free to add your own.

I don't think anyone's ever rocked a lute as hard as this guy.



But I can't look at it without hearing "Wyld Stallyns!".

This guy might just be the world's smarmiest looking fox salesman. Do they come any other way? I honestly don't know; I've never met a fox salesman. It seems like they would all look like this.



So it's no surprise that he bears a resemblance to the king of vapid celebrities who are famous for being famous.

Benedict Cumerbatch seems to be Hollywood's new go-to guy for playing arch-villains. Apparently he and Tom Hiddleston have taken the mantle from Alan Rickman and Jeremy Irons. We love us some evil with a dulcet British accent.



Ever wonder what it would have looked like if he had been cast as Thranduil instead of Smaug?




Also, have you ever wondered what happens to that Amulet of Fortitude when your character dies while dungeon diving? Apparently this guy uses it to bling out his pet squirrel.

At least it's going to a noble cause.

This one is so close, you have to think the artist was trying.



Subtract shirt and you get...



Finally, something for the Twi-hard/Pathfinder crossover market.
