* The bug net the ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' and its {{Interquel}} ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds'' is reminiscent of this (you can even catch bees and other insects with it as well as the fairies that return in later games). Later games even have bug collecting sidequests.

* The bug net in some of the ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' is reminiscent of this (you can even catch bees and other insects with it as well as the fairies that return in later games). Later games even have bug collecting subquests (particularly ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', where there was a massive variety of bugs to collect and one of a kind gold versions of each you had to collect as part of a side quest).
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', bugs have to be caught and given to an NPC in order to improve Link's potions.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' had a chapter where [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Youko]], [[KidFromTheFuture Rin]], and [[FallenAngel Karen]] decide to go out and catch rhinoceros beetles, but unfortunately they're all [[TheDitz ditzes]] and end up falling asleep too early two nights in a row while [[OnlySaneMan Asahi]] stays awake the entire time. From there it goes off completely into the series' usual off-the-wall comedy and ended with an exhausted Asahi falling asleep in a [[StockShoutOuts Stock Shout-Out]] to ''Manga/AshitaNoJoe''.

* During the Boer War, one of Robert Baden-Powell's favourite cover stories when he was spying was as a butterfly collector. Not only did this seem so innocent to the Boers seeing this grown man chasing butterflies that they didn't realize that he only seemed to find ones around their fortifications interesting, but he could disguise his maps in the pictures of the ones he caught.

* One story of ''Manga/KurosagiCorpseDeliveryService'' has the gang try this as yet another attempt at getting out of their PerpetualPoverty (stag beetles apparently sell for a lot of money). Predictably, it leads to yet another corpse (with its eyes pecked out and apparently having fallen from a tree). The culprit this time was [[spoiler:a parasite that normally affects snails, causing their antennae to bulge out and climb high to attract passing birds so the parasite can reproduce).]]

* UsefulNotes/CharlesDarwin was an avid insect collector. In one famous incident, he was coming home from an afternoon of collecting when he happened across a bombardier beetle. As his pockets were full, he attempted to carry it in his mouth, only to get a firsthand experience with its defensive abilities. [[NightmareFetishist He gleefully recounted the tale in his diary.]]
