* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' had Hayley falling in with an environmentalist group whose leader insists that he's a "[[UsefulNotes/{{Otherkin}} tree born in a man's body]]" and "wears" nothing but a potted plant. He also tries to blow up the new mall, but only succeeds in destroying Francine's muffin kiosk and Klaus' human body from [[TwoLinesNoWaiting the main plot]].

When he does this, Haley rejects him, shoving him over and breaking his pot, causing him to desperately heap dirt around his body while acting like he's suffocating.

** Helped by her parents both being vets who deal mostly with Wildlife (her father runs an animal hospital out of the family barn devoted to rehabilitating injured animals so they could survive in the wild, while her mother is the head vet at the local zoo). The closest Cassie comes to in so far as any question of animals rights is openly wondering if their use of animal morphs was no different than the Yeerks use of their hosts. This question is given some fair consideration by the team. While Cassie was often seen as the one most likely to let her more political beliefs drive her actions, all her flawed decisions were made concerning the team's safety, never animal safety.

** The manga's adaptation of ''Ruby and Sapphire'' added Pokémon Rights aspects to Team Aqua's and Magma's ecoterrorism, which remakes of the games later incorporated (for Team Aqua anyway; the remakes' Team Magma were pro-human instead).

** The ''Black and White'' and ''Black 2 and White 2'' chapters involve Team Plasma, which was already an Animal Wrongs Group in the games. It also presents one of the latter's protagonists, Whitley, as a Pokémon Rights crusader who had been a Team Plasma member until the "good" half of the group broke up, and she still believes in its extremist ideals. Even so, the story implies that it's due to being indoctrinated in the group's rhetoric at an early age (she was in Team Plasma at age 10 and the story is set when she's 12) and hasn't completely thought through the implications yet.

* PlayedForLaughs (like everything else) in ''VideoGame/OverlordII'': The elves, already overly emo in the first game, have become hippies bent on saving magical creatures from the magic-hating Glorious Empire -- but only the cute fuzzy ones. As the titular EvilOverlord, one of the first things you do is march into their arctic preserve and start ''clubbing baby seals''.

** The remakes of ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' portray Team Aqua this way, committed to expanding the sea in order to make new habitats for Pokémon that lost their homes to human development. In contrast, their rivals, Team Magma, are focused on [[VisionaryVillain furthering humanity's progress by expanding the landmass]].



*** By the time of ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'', however, Team Plasma has split into two factions and neither one is an Animal Wrongs Group anymore: one side has reformed as a legitimate animal welfare group working to atone for their misdeeds; while the other has resorted to outright terrorism, not even bothering to use animal rights as a justification.

* The only possible way to describe the Ashbound in the TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons ''{{Eberron}}'' setting, overlapping with WellIntentionedExtremist. These are people who believe anything other than living in a cave is inherently evil. Because one of their early members turned into a lich to aid their agencies, and after she was destroyed there was a bumper season, they concluded ''all'' arcane magic was equally evil. The ''Faiths of Eberron'' supplement points out that slightly [[strike:less monomaniacal]] more flexible individuals might have considered that after said lich caused ''severe ecological damage'', the bumper season may have been a result of the balance reasserting rather than a sign that all wizards are using powers that risk severely crippling nature (you have to be at least level 17 to access that kind of thing).

* Stephanie Kane of the ''Webcomic/ParanormalMysterySquad'' butts heads with the PETM, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Monsters, a group that demands that cryptids be captured alive and unharmed, on a regular basis, which runs at odds with her own mission to kill any cryptid that threatens humans.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' has a downplayed example in the form of [[spoiler:the Aether Foundation.]] Though they occupy a villainous role, most of the organization is legitimately well-intentioned, it's just their boss that has gone a bit wrong in the head (for example, the only reason its personnel attack you when you invade is because they were falsely told that you had come to steal Pokemon). Once it comes under new management at the end of the games, the personnel are clearly working to atone for the organization's misdeeds.
* Thetis from ''VideoGame/MegamanZX Advent'', who wants to use his powers to punish every person on earth for all the sea creatures they've killed with their incessant water pollution. To be fair to him, this is a world that's had no less than three [[ApocalypseHow class 1 apocalypses]] so far (all caused by Humans and Reploids, who he hates equally) and it's actually somewhat impressive that there's any sea life ''left''.
