* 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.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': A glowing blue butterfly appears each time the protagonist is about to die in the story, urging him to overcome his impending doom. This includes when he's about to be executed in Kamoshida's Palace and when he's brought into the interrogation room [[spoiler:where the conspiracy intends to assassinate him.]] Similarly, glowing butterflies surround a fallen character when you use revive items or magic on them.
