* Animal rights groups (such as PETA) use rabbits/hares as a logo for their products, presumably because of their perceived status as harmless and innocent. When displaying their message of fighting animals, an image of boxing hares is used.

* Satsuki Yotsuba from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v09/c073/11.html is commonly drawn with a Koala behind her]] and is the only [[LoadsandLoadsofCharacters one]] drawn quite [[OnlySixFaces different]] clearly inspired by a Koala.

** New Zealand has a wealth of distinctive native fauna that could be used to represent it, but by far the most popular (and most official) is the kiwi. It is popular enough that most New Zealanders will refer to themselves as Kiwis when talking about their nationality.

** New Zealand has a wealth of distinctive native fauna that could be used to represent it, it (and sheep...), but by far the most popular (and most official) is the kiwi. It is popular enough that most New Zealanders will refer to themselves as Kiwis when talking about their nationality.nationality, and a term known as "Kiwiana" has appeared and refers to anything that New Zealand culturally associates with itself.
*** On an ironic note, the FLIGHTLESS kiwi is also the official symbol of their air force.

** The Stark sigil is a grey direwolf, a fitting match for a noble dynasty from the GrimUpNorth. Other Northern animal motifs include bears for House Mormont, whose sigil is a black bear in a green wood and "lizard-lions" as the sigil for House Reed (they being akin to huge alligators and crocodiles that are native to their swamps).

** House Martell is a strange case since their sigil is actually a sun transfixed by a spear, as featured prominently in the set design of the Water Gardens, yet the opening credits give much more prominence to a viper to highlight their connection to Oberyn and his branch of the family, who use a snake motif well-matched to their personalities and fighting styles: quick, unpredictable, and venomous.

** The Lannister sigil is a lion and they frequently use KingOfBeasts as dynastic propaganda, such as when Tywin declares that "A lion does not concern himself with the opinions of the sheep." Jaime asks, "By what right does the wolf judge the lion?!" and Cersei uses a parable about lions to comfort Tommen during the Battle of Blackwater. The family's blond hair also gives them a vaguely leonine appearance.

The family's blond hair also gives them a vaguely leonine appearance. The lion seems to be the predominant motif for the Westerlands (where the Lannisters are from) in general, having also been featured on the banners of the Reynes of Castamere. The region is also home to wild mountain lions, one of which mauled Tywin's father, Lord Tytos, who was saved by the intervention of his kennelmaster, the grandfather of Sandor and Gregor Clegane.
