* When Chroma banishes Queen Chrysalis near the beginning of ''[[FanFic/TheRainsverse When It Rains]]'', the Queen is able to split off and preserve a tiny fragment of her essence in the form of a white butterfly. This butterfly offers guidance to Adagio at a couple of key points in the plot, and transforms back into Queen Chrysalis once Chroma is defeated.

* The Rose sisters awareness of this symbolism becomes a major issue for Jozk in ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate''. When he asks them to take his soul before expiring and promptly looses the ability to speak or move when his soul gem falls out of his chest hanging by a thread Rosewood finds a nearby butterfly which Rosa immediately accepts as his soul. Rosebud actually guesses the correct item for containing his soul but gets shot down as trying to loot his corpse. An actual looter nearby overhears and quickly grabs his gem as soon as the girls have their backs turned.

* ''Series/KamenRiderFaiz'' uses this in a more general way. The MonstersOfTheWeek are Orphnochs, beings who are born when some humans die. The Smart Brain corporation, which secretly supports the Orphnochs, has a mascot named Smart Lady who's heavily associated with blue and black butterflies[[note]]To the point where many fans theorize that she's the Butterfly Orphnoch, though the series never definitively says whether she's Orphnoch or human[[/note]]. This has resulted in these butterflies becoming a symbol for ''Faiz'' as a whole, appearing on its backdrop in ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' and again in the direct-to-DVD movie ''Kamen Rider #4'' when Shocker's Great Leader transforms into Faiz.

* Butterflies are very much a negative motif in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. They represent bad thoughts and insecurities, white butterflies being the manifestation of said things when meditation happens, and have to be driven away. A notably heinous villain, Aquamarine, also has a strong lepidopteran motif.

* Used excellently in ''Videogame/BioShock2''. The Big Bad of the game loves to use butterflies as a metaphor for the effects of Adam upon the population of rapture. Additionally, living and dead blue butterflies are seen in a few places throughout the game. But it really comes together during the Little Sister sequence when it's revealed that the Little Sisters perceive the flies swarming around the bodies of dead "angels" as butterflies.

* In ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'', the BigBad Deboss arrived on Earth in a form suited to [[PhlebotinumKilledTheDinosaurs kill the dinosaurs]]: a mutant creature resembling a T-rex. When he evolves into a form suited to killing off humanity, he turns into a humanoid figure with a butterfly motif, complete with one on his face resembling an enormous mustache. Additionally, his final form is given the title "Chouzetsushin", which takes the Japanese word for "transcendence" and replaces the first kanji with the one for "butterfly"; fansubbers Over-Time rendered this in English as "Lepidominant Lord", while ThatOtherWiki uses the much more on-the-nose "Transcendenterfly God".

** After a certain dramatic moment in ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'', the concurrent Manga/XxxHOLiC chapter featured Watanuki dreaming of her death - then, when he wakes up, a butterfly appears over his clenched hand, and vanishes into thin air. Naturally, when he goes to look for Yuuko, she's gone, having moved on as payment to fight Fei Wong Reed's GambitRoulette.
