Willow Rosenberg: the LJN Nintendo sprite!

So, I stumbled on this ridiculously off-model action figure of Alyson Hannigan’s Willow Rosenberg from Buffy the Vampire Slayer:

The completely wrong hair and eye color, the expressionless face utterly lacking the charm of any photo of Hannigan, including the one right next to it on the box… I was baffled at first, but then I realized that it could only be an “I meant to do that” deliberate recreation of a bad 8-bit Nintendo sprite, just like ReAction’s figures for Jason and Freddy based on the infamous LJN games for the NES!

All the history books that tell us that NES games stopped being made three years before the show aired were obviously mistaken!  But what exactly did this game’s version of Willow look like?

Exactly like this:
