* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry 2'': Glimmer, although it's a subversion in that it's not hideous-looking and actually helps the Kongs by providing light. There is a similar tadpole character in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64''.

* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'': In the Strong Bad E-mail "animal", one of the ideas Strong Bad has for what he'd be if he were an animal would be "one of those deep-sea fangly fishes". Its lure was Homestar's head. And it had a back deck "for dinner and dancing."
