* ''{{Bionicle}}'' has had two: one against the prematurely released Bohrok hordes on the island of Mata Nui and another against the [[GiantSpider Visorak]]. The Visorak would eventually be wiped out during the Karda Nui arc when the artifact that called them together is brought onto a volatile volcanic island.

* ''LostPlanet'' has the ferocious Akrid, whom range from tiny fliers to massive worms and enormous {{Kaiju}}s. They were strong enough to completely ruin mankind's first colonization attempt on their native planet, which eventually led to the wars seen in the main story of ''Extreme Condition''.

* Used and subverted in VideoGame/AlienSyndrome, the truth was revealed that in the end, the alien queen was very much capable of human thought and emotions and that the reason for the bugs/aliens was due to a failed experiment and that the entire war was a means of an elaborate [[DeathSeeker suicide]] as she can't take the fact of being the sole survivor of a civilization that was driven to extinction.

* ''TheConduit'' appears to be one of these. Later, it is revealed that they're actually clones as part of a secret GovernmentConspiracy run by aliens. It's played straight in ''{{Conduit 2}}''.

* So many video games. ''Galaga'', ''Defender'', ''Silpheed'' (PS2) to name just a few. Even ''SpaceInvaders'' are buglike.

* Inverted in Creator/AlanDeanFoster's ''HumanxCommonwealth'' series, where humans allied with the Thranx. Thranx are insectile -- they have an exoskeleton, eight limbs. They are, in essence, good guys. Human ally with the Thranx against an evil species that looks perfectly human, and a highly humanoid reptilian species. Although humans did have some instinctive abhorrence about allying with the buglike Thranx, to their surprise they find more "human" decency in the bugs than the humanoids.
