* Somewhat subverted with ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' character Rouge the Bat. She's a ClassyCatBurglar (with rather [[MonumentalTheft improbable goals]]) and generally on the evil side (especially in spinoffs), but closer to TrueNeutral and often acting as an AntiHero. Shes a lot more like a real bat than usual, much like [[Franchise/{{Neopets}} Korbat]].

* On ''Franchise/{{Neopets}}'', Korbats are, in general, very cute. This makes them more like RealLife bats than usual!

* TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}} has three, created by vampires to protect their larder of humans. There's [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/bullysnag.htm Bullysnag]], a gorilla like bat that is trained to always go for the kneecaps when hunting, [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/clawsimon.htm Clawsimon]], a spotlight-like bat designed to stop escaping humans, and [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/chiraptor.htm Chiraptor]], who is the vampire equivalent of a hunting falcon. The actual bat vampire, [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/sinister.htm Sinister]], as it prefers to be left alone amongst its hordes of mind-controlled bats.

* Both played straight and averted by the Komory Bat dream eater in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3D''. The creepy red eyes and dark colors their evil Nightmare versions possess give them a rather unsettling appearance, and they're [[GoddamnedBats the other kind of bat]] as well. On the other hand, the brightly colored friendly Spirit version is adorable and a surprisingly helpful ally in combat despite being one of the two starter dream eaters.

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius:'' A colony of "blood bats" make a brief appearance while the protagonists are in Castle Heterodyne. Fortunately, the heroes are able to leave the area before the creatures take flight. Also, one of the novelizations of the comic mention a "particularly large and grumpy" bat which managed to acquire something of a reputation before being shot down by one of Baron Wulfenbach's airships.

* Real vampire bats avert this trope through their altruistic social behavior. Bats who come home with full bellies will regurgitate blood to feed hungry flockmates, even when the recipients aren't related to them.

* Real vampire bats avert this trope through their altruistic social behavior. Bats who come home with full bellies will regurgitate blood to feed hungry flockmates, even when the recipients aren't related to them. Such sharing, more commonly associated with social primates, is ''extremely'' rare in nature.

* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'': Ratbat, one of [[FadSuper Soundwave's]] cassettes, turns into a bat (as his name belies). In the comics he was obsessed with using Energon efficiently. Decepticon hypnotist Mindwipe falls into this well complete with Hungarian Accent.

** Bugbats are bat-like creatures with the heads of insects. They're fairly harmless alone, but a swarm can kill a dwarf in seconds.

* RJ Palmer's "Realistic Franchise/{{Pokemon}}" portrays [[http://arvalis.deviantart.com/art/Gengar-334476729 the Gengar line]] as this. Gastly is depicted as a floating version of the Normal Bat variant, which develops into a Dire Bat upon evolving into Haunter and eventually becomes a flightless version of the Dire Bat when it becomes Gengar. He also did a gorgeous portrayal of [[http://arvalis.deviantart.com/art/Noivern-460782149 the below mentioned Noivern]].

* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'':
** Giant bats, found living BeneathTheEarth, are over three times the size of a dwarf and fill the Dire Bat niche. They’re quite capable of killing a lone dwarf by themselves, but can be captured and trained as hunting animals. Goblins sometimes bring them as [[HorseOfADifferentColor mounts]] to sieges.
** Bat men also exist. They only have four limbs -- their arms double as wings like in real bats -- and live in tribes underground, being one of the few underground animal people capable of flight. They can also be found on the surface, where like the other surface-dwelling animal people they don’t form tribes and are essentially bipedal animals.
