* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'': The mongrelmen are a race descended from survivors of the ancient Azlanti empire who fled underground to escape their empire’s destruction. They are able to breed with any other species of humanoid (a fairly diverse category in-game) and inherit their traits, meaning that any given mongrelman can have a wide range of disparate body parts -- tusks, vertebrate or arthropod claws, feet or paws or hooves, scales or fur or bare skin, elf ears, a tail, horns or antlers, antennae, vertebrate or compound eyes, etcetera -- all on the same body, with the end result usually being a fairly chaotic take on this trope.

** The adlets, creatures originally from Inuit mythology, resemble human-sized, humanoid wolves with snow-white fur, and live in tribal groups in the arctic north. While not evil -- they're ChaoticNeutral as a rule -- they're a very aggressive and barbaric race, and regularly come in conflict with other races and cultures who attempt to settle their frozen homelands. They also have no taboo against cannibalism and often eat their dead, which hasn't helped their public view among other species very much.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Numenera}}'': Margr are a species of [[AlwaysChaoticEvil abhumans]] (the descendants of humans who became monsters as a result of undergoing extreme genetic modification) with goatlike body parts. Individual margr vary greatly in appearance, so one might have a full goat head while another just has horns and a third has goatlike legs.

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'': There is a recurring pattern of humanoid animals appearing as in-universe sapient species, often with important roles in their respective settings. They are usually marked by not having dedicated creature types and being listed as part of their non-humanoid counterparts' types -- for instance, the leonin CatFolk are classified in their cards as "cats" rather than "leonin", unlike humans or elves who have dedicated "human" and "elf" creature types. Generally, they way each type is characterized derives from the nature and stereotypes of their associated animal.
** The rhoxes are hulking, humanoid rhinoceri especially prominent in the Alaran shard of [[{{Arcadia}} Bant]], where they are best known for being stalwart and powerful knights and warriors. After the Conflux and the merging of the shards, [[https://magiccards.info/arb/en/59.html some of them]] joined the barbarians of the Red shard of Jund.
** The loxodons are humanoid elephants found on several planes, most notably Mirrodin, Ravnica and Tarkir, and aligned with White and Green, the colors of order and tradition. They are known for being extremely strict, fastidious and zealous in everything they do: the Mirran loxodons in particular were known to be some of the strictest and most unimaginative religious zealots on the plane (at least before they were nearly wiped out by the Phyrexian invasion).
-->''Long ago, the Auriok attempted peace with the loxodons. The leonin attempted war. Neither succeeded.'' -- "[[https://magiccards.info/5dn/en/11.html Loxodon Stalwart]]"
** The loxodons of Tarkir are quite unlike the other planes' elephant-folk: they resemble [[https://magiccards.info/ktk/en/158.html mammoths]] instead of African elephants, and are mountain-dwelling barbarians and survivalists instead of lawkeepers and religious zealots.
** The ainok are humanoid hounds from the plane of Tarkir. They are divided into two breeds: the jackal-like ainok of the Abzan Houses are desert nomads experienced in sand magic, while the ainok of the Temur mountains, which resemble Tibetan mastiffs, are rugged survivalists known for their immense loyalty to their clans and their tendency to descend into berserker rages during combat.
** Amonkhet is home to the khenra, black-furred humanoid jackals visually inspired by Anubis.
** Besides these, there are several kinds representing types of Beast Man that go on their own pages, such as the viashino LizardFolk (notable for being one of the few kinds to get their own creature type), various types of CatFolk (more or less all the same thing, but they go by different names -- cat warriors, nishoba, leonin, nacatl -- on different planes), the nezumi RatMen, the naga SnakePeople (who also get their own creature type) and the aven BirdPeople.

** A recurring monstrous race in the games, the gnolls are a species of hulking bipedal hyenas who generally leans more towards the "upright animal" side than the "human with animal traits" side. [[HeinousHyena They're also one of the most evil and barbaric races in the settings they appear in]], and are most well-known for their worship of demons, their constant raids against other peoples, their habit of [[MadeASlave enslaving]] or [[ImAHumanitarian eating]] anyone they catch, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking their unbelievable laziness]].
