* The ComicBook/XMen villain and sometime ComicBook/{{Magneto}} lackey, Toad who could leap great distances and secrete slime. (Ironically, it's frogs, not toads, that do this.) Later, he was given a toad-like tongue.
** X-Men off shoot teams such as ComicBook/XFactor, ComicBook/{{Excalibur}}, ComicBook/XForce, and ComicBook/NewMutants have included many animal-based members. Wolfsbane was a member of all four aforementioned teams.

** This goes for his sidekicks as well: the various [[ComicBook/{{Robin}} Robins]], [[ComicBook/{{Batwoman}} Bat-Women]], and ComicBook/{{Batgirl}}s. Oddly averted in the case of ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} who has a vague bird-like motif but nothing specific.
*** Technically Robin's schtick was originally based on Robin Hood (ASBAR, of all things, remembered this) but In-Universe he's prone to nicknames like "Bird Boy", so people definitely believe this trope is in play.
** The same goes for ComicBook/{{Catwoman}} and her SpearCounterpart, Cat-Man.

Added DiffLines:

* The ComicBook/{{Blue Beetle}}s generally fall under this, either being superpowered but not having a beetle's powers (like Dan Garrett and Jaime Reyes), or being a badass normal with a beetle theme (like Ted Kord). The closest any of them get to Type 1 is Jaime using beetle wings to fly.

* While Batman characters are usually Type II, the ''Film/BatmanReturns'' version of the Penguin was a freak who acted and looked like a penguin. Catwoman was likewise a little animalistic and seemingly had nine lives.
