** ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'' protagonist Booker Dewitt has a subtle horse motif due to his vigors being related to horses such as Bucking Bronco and Shock Jockey which are also featured in the Burial at Sea DLC. This horse theme connects Booker to his native American heritage, given more significance when concerning the battle of Wounded Kneeand the mascure of the tribe.

* ''{{Exalted}}'': Many Exalts take an animal for their character motifs. Lunars take it one step further, in that they can turn into any animals, provided they ritually hunt the animal first. Infernals on the other hand, takes some characteristics of their [[DealWithTheDevil Coadjutors]], which tends to be demonic version of certain animals. (Erymanthoi are demon-gorilla, Theodozjia are demon-cats, etc.)

* In ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}'', it’s safe to say that Sola’s uncle Crow Harbor is heavily associated with crows. Apart from being [[AnimalThemeNaming named after them]], [[spoiler:when we finally see him during TheStinger of ''Sunrider Liberation Day'' he’s wearing a large bird’s skull on one shoulder and a cape made of what appears to be crow feathers on the other]]. Given that he plunged the entire galaxy into a bloody civil war just to put himself on the throne of the ancient Ryuvian Empire [[spoiler:and is poised to do the same thing to the modern galaxy]], he fits the motif of [[CreepyCrows crows as harbingers of doom]].

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series traditionally has the [[TheEmpire Cyrodiilic Empire]] represented by a dragon; this emblem dates back to St. Alessia, [[FounderOfTheKingdom who founded the first empire]] with the aid of a pact with Akatosh, the dragon-god of time. Their rivals, [[OurElvesAreBetter the Altmer]], particularly when leading the [[AntiHumanAlliance Aldmeri Dominion]], are represented by an eagle based on Auri-El, the golden eagle god on whom Akatosh was originally based.

** The now-extinct Ayleids (Wild Elves) had significant bird motifs. Many of their writings (and writings about them) are heavy with bird metaphors. They were said to have adorned themselves with feathers. Their armor was designed with feather patterns and their helmets with "beaks." A great example is the [[http://images.uesp.net//thumb/2/2c/ON-npc-King_Laloriaran_Dynar.jpg/600px-ON-npc-King_Laloriaran_Dynar.jpg armor of Laloriaran Dynar]] in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline''.
** The Maormer (Sea Elves) native to the continent of Pyandonea, far to the south of Tamriel, have a number of serpent motifs, especially vipers. Their seaborne raiders, infamous for their raids on the southern coasts of Tamriel in the 1st and 2nd Eras, were specifically called the "Sea Vipers." It is said that they practice a powerful form of "snake magic," which allows them [[TheBeastmaster to control and ride sea serpents]].
