Most don't look different. Not in the natural realm. Most top level non-natural lifters I know are jacked as well. In the AAS realm, bodybuilders look different because of cuts and chems - they take chems for size, and not strength. Big difference.
I work in the industry and have interviewed nearly every top natural in the game. I've spent time with everyone from Mr. NC to Mr. Minnesota.
I've talked to Doug Miller, and Shaun Clarida.
Top level natural powerlifters have just as much muscle mass as top level natural bodybuilders.
The only difference is bodyfat, and powerlifters don't bring up weak (small) muscle groups. They still have plenty of muscle. Let's look...

Yet here he looks like a monster compared to me. It's all bodyfat. Bodybuilding is an illusion.
...Natural freak right!
