* Several of the trolls in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' have animal motifs, associated with their lusus and their [[WesternZodiac Zodiac sign]]. Karkat - crabs, Nepeta - cats, Terezi - dragons, etc. Vriska's spider motif is the most obvious though, working its way into her typing quirk. John seems to be picking up on it. The kids (with the exception of John) each have one as well, relating to what their sprites were prototyped with: [[TheStoic Dave]]'s crows are the most obvious, then [[DeadpanSnarker Rose]]'s cat (in addition to her [[NightmareFetishist affinity]] for [[EldritchAbomination all things tentacled]]), and Jade's [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot radioactive god dog]]. Finally, there's Roxy's cats and Dirk's seagulls.
** You could argue that John has a rabbit motif however. One of his recurring possessions is the plush rabbit from ''Film/ConAir'' which he first receives as is from Dave, then restitched via knitting by Rose, and finally as a CrazyAwesome battle bot from Jade. [[spoiler:[[ItMakesSenseInContext The latter two incarnations were the prior incarnation given to Rose and Jade respectively by John when they were babies]].]] Given John's innocence, buckteeth and kooky worldview, this fits.
** Similarly, Dave is associated with crows, Rose and Roxy are associated with cats, Jade is associated with dogs, Jane is associated with rabbits, Dirk is associated with (seagulls as opposed to Dave's crows), and Jake is associated with "frightening fauna".
