Want an easy way to show that your character is loyal and tough? [[HeroicDog Make him a canine!]] Want to come off as graceful while a bit of a loner? [[CatsAreSuperior Make her a feline!]] Want them to be tricky, cunning, or confident? [[CunningLikeAFox Choose a fox!]] And while the stereotypes themselves vary from culture to culture, animals are one of the most popular forms of symbolism in fiction.

When used as a characterization shortcut, the work compares the character to an animal for which the audience's culture projects certain personality traits. This can be done subtly with symbolism or ThemeNaming, or more blatantly by giving the character physical traits or mannerisms of the animal, or even by making the animal itself the character.
