** The thri-kreen are a desert-dwelling nomadic race of mantis-men. Many of them have [[PsychicPowers psionic abilities.]]

** Araneas are giant (4ft long, 2ft wide) spiders originally introduced in TabletopGame/{{Mystara}}. They're fully sapient, ''smarter'' than the average human, [[WitchSpecies naturally adept at magic]], and [[VoluntaryShapeshifting therianthrope-style shapeshifters, with a single inherent humanoid form as well as a natural spider form]]. Also, they're ''not'' AlwaysChaoticEvil but typically Neutral, admittedly tending towards being arrogant, manipulative {{jerkass}}es. In fact, they're an official player race in the Red Steel subsetting.



* ''WerewolfTheForsaken'' has the Nidmuzug, or, more plainly, the Unclean. Humans who ate food contaminated by the spiritual taint that all Nidmuzugs emit and found themselves turning into were''cockroaches''. Their hybrid form is a giant, humanoid cockroach that can have a poisonous bite or claw attack. Their "beast form" is a swarm of hundreds of cockroaches, all controlled by a single mind.
** Interestingly, they come off as quite [[TheWoobie miserable]] rather than scary (to the point where people who know about their personalities call them [[{{Expy}} Kafkas]]). They lose absolutely none of their humanity in the whole BodyHorror process, and they can't live among humans since light hurts their eyes. The elders eventually become estranged from their human sides, but given the general misery that is their existence, it seems more like Unclean who ''[[DrivenToSuicide survive]]'' to that point used the logic of "You know what? [[JerkassWoobie Fuck you]], [[MaddenIntoMisanthropy I]] ''[[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds am]]'' [[TragicMonster a monster]]!"

* ''VudeoGame/{{Terraria}} has many examples, from [[AntlionMonster antlions]] (including the rarely seen flying form) to [[SandWorm underground worms]] to [[BeeAfraid giant bees and hornets]], and of course [[GiantSpider terrifyingly large spiders]]. [[RandomDrops If you're lucky]], you can even get the honeyed goggles from the queen bee boss, allowing the player to summon and ride a slightly smaller giant bee.
