Super deformed (aka SD) is a style of manga and anime art that features smaller, cuter versions of pre-existing characters, with distorted proportions.
- The G1 Mini Vehicles' alt modes were based on Choro-Q toy cars, which themselves were super-deformed versions of actual cars. (This is particularly clear when you compare Cliffjumper to an actual Porsche 924.)
- The Monster Pretenders featured rubbery beast shells and robot monster modes that were scrunched and deformed enough to be considered super-deformed (Scowl's bio in particular makes note of this horrid cuteness.)
- In 1990, Takara marketed a series of super-deformed Transformers toys, with the Transformer PD Type mini-comics serving as their official fiction.
- MyClone figurines are also designed in a super-deformed style.
- Pioneer's laserdisc releases of Fight! Super Robot Lifeform Transformers featured two pieces of super deformed cover artwork, one for the Autobots and one for the Decepticons (pictured right), by Hidetsugu Yoshioka. The artist later created one large group shot of both factions for the Transformers 2010 laserdisc, then another dual faction piece for the laserdisc release of "The Rebirth".
- The manual artwork and game sprites for Duel Fight Transformers Beast Wars: Beast Warriors' Strongest Decisive Battle were done in a super deformed style.
- The fan-made comic "Superdeformers", written by Matt Nelson, was used in various official Transformers production by 3H. The "Superdeformers" web-site is currently down for unknown reasons.
- First 4 Figures produced a super-deformed Ultra Magnus statue in 2006, based on an art contest at the Tranformers World 2005 site. 
- Hasbro began releasing the Robot Heroes line in 2007, consisting of super-deformed versions of classic G1 characters such as Starscream, Grimlock, and Mirage
