** All animals of the Chinese Zodiac have characteristics associated with the animal that are suppose to affect people born that year, like for example Dogs are loyal, Rats are cunning, and so on. The Western Zodiac also have something similar, as for example the people under the Leo sign are suppose to be very dominant, the people under Scorpio to be very sly and vengeful, people under Aries to be very impulsive and stubborn, etc., Of course not all signs in the Western Zodiac are animals so the trope is only partial.

%% * Many of the noble houses in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' have animals as part of their heraldry and show a certain awareness of how they are supposed to act because of this. An extract from an upcoming novel has a member of House Lannister, whose sigil is a Lion, make a comment about his Lion like nature and the man in question (a foreigner) wonders at how strange those in Westeros are, that they put a dragon, lion or stag on a breastplate and immediately start calling themselves such and trying to fulfill what they think that means they should act like. House Frey's prominent members on the other hand are often described by others as looking and acting like weasels

* As mentioned in the Literature section, the noble families in ''Series/GameOfThrones'' trully represent the animal of their houses;
** Starks have a direwolf, wolves have a pack mentality and live in the wild under very harsh conditions, the Starks are deeply loyal to their family and live in one of the most inhospitable parts of Westeros.
**Lannisters have a lion, lions are generally associated with intelligence and predatory skills as with power and ambition, characteristics that very well describe the Lannisters.
** Targaryen have a dragon, Eastern Dragons represent fertility, sexuality and regeneration, things that can be easily associated with the Targaryens, especially Daenerys, whilst Western Dragons are associated with greed and chaos, also something that can be link to the Targaryens, especially those in Westeros like the Mad King.

* ''Literature/TheWindInTheWillos'' plays this trope straight. Every character has a personality connected with its animal: Mole is shy and introverted, Rat is relaxed and cunning, Badger is gruff and solitary, Toad is noisy and outgoing, and the Weasels and Stoats are mischievous and tricksters.
