** Ace the Bat-Hound in Silver Age ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' comics. Who wore a cowl to hide a distinctive patch on his fur. And now there's Bat-Cow, who started as a one-off joke in ''ComicBook/GrantMorrisonsBatman'', but has since had a brief solo story in a ''Batman Incorporated'' one-shot and sort of teamed up with the [[ComicBook/NewGods Forever People]].

* ''BorisTheBear'', an ultraviolent ursine AntiHero who's made it his life's mission to destroy every ''other'' anthropomorphic animal superhero in existence, starting with the TMNT, [[spoiler: except for Droopy.]]

** Comic book people sure love animal puns, don't they?
** There's also the puntastic ''Marvel Apes'' series along with the Prime Eight spin-off. Just a small sampling: Spider-Monkey, Iron Mandrill, Nick Furry (same name as the funny animal in the ''Spider-Ham'' stories, oddly), Silverback Surfer, Doc Ook...
** ''ComicBook/UltimateFF'' has Miles Morhames, the Ultimate Spider-Ham, who is a humanoid pig from a decidedly less cartoony version of the ''Spider-Ham'' universe.
** Does Black Panther turning into a ''literal'' anthropomorphic black panther in ''ComicBook/EarthX'' count?
