lizardman. The same applies to the multiple protagonists of the adult remake, ''Series/KamenRiderAmazons''. However, in both cases, it's less of having the abilities of a lizard and more of the fact that they fight like wild animals.

* In the VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} series, we have Octoman who, as the name implies, has eight arms. When asked if he could be any animal, what would he be, he answered that he would be an elephant, oddly enough.

** This goes for the Batfamily as well: the various [[ComicBook/{{Robin}} Robins]], [[ComicBook/{{Batwoman}} Batwomen]], and ComicBook/{{Batgirl}}s. Oddly averted in the case of ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} who has a vague bird-like motif but nothing specific.
