* One of the first things we find out about [[TheChroniclesofNarnia Eustace Clarence Scrubb]] is that he "liked animals, especially beetles, if they were dead and pinned on a card".

* In ''TheWaterPhoenixKing'', Gilgam has quite a few beetles decorating his equipment. His pauldrons, the large pin which unfolds into a collar that connects them over his warmer-weather gear, the charge crystals for his gun, are all scarab-shaped, and his riding-beast is a robot that looks like a cross between an ant and a beetle of some sort. [[AncientEgypt It makes sense...]]

* Some of CharlesDarwin's earliest interests were in beetles. Of course, it wasn't until he started looking at finches that he put his name down in history, but things might have been different if Darwin wasn't so interested in beetles. To give an example of how strong his obsession with beetles and beetle collecting was, once as a young man he was returning home after collecting beetles in the woods when he came across a bombardier beetle. Even though he was already out of room to carry it, he was determined to bring it home with him and attempted to carry it in his mouth. Naturally, this resulted in him discovering what being sprayed in the mouth by a bombardier beetle was like, and the resulting effects caused him to lose both the bombardier and all the other beetles he'd collected. He described the event with great enthusiasm in his diary.
