*** A Knuckles story arc prior to the reboot involves a fully evolved Tasmanian Devil who claimed that the reason other devils never fully evolved was actually due to the Echidna race's genetic tampering, and as revenge, stuck all of them but Knuckles into the negative zone (once again making Knuckles the only surviving member of his species.) This was the first attempt at [[PutOnABus putting several of Ken Penders' characters on a bus.]]

* In the French comic ''DeCapeEtDeCrocs'', everyone is human except for several characters who are anthropomorphic animals [[WhatDoYouMeanItSNotSymbolic for no explained reason]] -- most notably, the main characters who are a wolf and a fox. The writer is aware of the "chicken-man eating fried chicken" wrongness and plays with it a few times, but the more memorable one happens when the heroes almost get cooked by an indigenous tribe. They manage to free themselves and run into the chief, who realizes that they're not really animals, apologizes and invites them to dinner. He later explains that the villagers "misjudged them", at which point the wolf notices a man with a big knife leading a regular dog away from a crying child... then the dog cries out offscreen and the wolf looks down at his food with a horrified look on his face. The fact that he knew an anthropomorphic dog in canon only makes it more twisted. ** Would that be the basset he killed in a duel? *** That basset lacked respect. * ''ComicBook/{{Bamse}}'' has this to ''some'' degree. There are anthro animals and non-anthro animals. To further confuse the issue many of the non-anthro animals are Non-Morphic {{Talking Animal}}s (although mostly among themselves) oddly enough someone obviously thought about the InterSpeciesRomance aspects: Fox-girl and badger-boy mention that it would be nice if they were of the same species [[spoiler: and then kiss despite this]]. ** (Then they get an apartment together, though both insist that they're still JustFriends. Draw whatever conclusion you like.)

* ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog has Sonic's pet dog Muttski, one of the very few non-anthropomorphic animals seen in the comic (which also contains FunnyAnimal dogs). Tasmanian Devils are explicitly described in one issue as "One of the few Mobian races that never fully evolved", but Muttski doesn't appear to be one.

* In ''ComicBook/ToothAndClaw'' there are somehow non-anthropomorphic birds flying around. Insects are also not humanized.

* Sometimes lampshaded in ''The Spiffy Adventures of [=McConey=]'' by the French comic artist LewisTrondheim, where ''all'' characters are anthropomorphic animals. In one episode our heroes go on a search of a missing pet dog (a real dog, not an anthropomorphic one!) for whom a reward has been offered. When they watch a picture (which is not shown on the panel) of the missing dog and his owner, one of them asks: "So, who is the dog?" and another one answers: "The more short and less hairy one." * Lampshaded in Art Spiegelman's ''ComicBook/{{Maus}}'', where Jewish characters are depicted as anthropomorphic mice, while Germans are cats. At one point the main character is at the home of someone who keeps several dogs. For those panels, the characters are depicted as people in mouse ''masks'' and the author leaves a little note basically acknowledging that the metaphor falls apart for a moment there.

** Following the reboot, [[spoiler:Muttski is now a full-fledged Mobian, and his full name is now Ben Muttski. Sonic and Tails were shocked to discover that to say the least.]]

* ''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo'' is set in an alternative [[JidaiGeki feudal Japan]] populated by all kinds of anthropomorphic animals. The only major exceptions apart from birds, fish, and insects are horses (which are just the same as our Earth horses) and a species of long-necked lizard called "Tokage" ("reptile" in Japanese). On the other hand, the main villain, Lord Hikiji, is an altogether different kind of animal -- [[spoiler:he is the [[HumansAreBastards only human]] in Usagi's world.]]
