* The Wrothians of ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' are a ProudWarriorRace of these with a very [[{{Wutai}} Japanese-inspired culture]].

** The Khajiit are a feline race hailing from the deserts of Elsweyr in southern Tamriel. There are 17 known sub-breeds of Khajiit, with the sub-breed determined by the phases of the moon under which the Khajiit was born. The appearance of the sub-breeds can vary wildly. On one end are the Alfiq, who are the size of house cats and cannot speak, but do understand language and are reportedly powerful spell casters. Then there are several humanoid varieties of Khajiit, such as the Ohmes and Ohmes-raht (who appeared in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsArena Arena]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]''). They are commonly mistaken for Bosmer (Wood Elves) due to their humanoid appearances with [[LittleBitBeastly light fur and tails]]. The Suthay-raht, who appear in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' are a bit less humanoid, but still bi-pedal with more cat-like features, postures, and hair. On the other end of the spectrum are the Pahmar, who are [[PettingZooPeople quadrupeds the size of tigers]] and can be mounted by their comrades as [[BeastOfBattle Beasts Of Battle]]. Further, it's implied that all sub-species are [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction capable of breeding]] with one another. The resulting offspring [[RandomSpeciesOffspring may not be either of the parents' breeds]] and is determined by the phases of the moons under which it is born. Culturally, the Khajiit (with their cross-continent merchant caravans, propensity for stealth, and being the frequent victims of FantasticRacism) [[FantasyCounterpartCulture draw heavily from the Roma]]. Their language, Ta'agra, [[LanguageEqualsThought has no word for "rules"]], which can obviously lead to issues in the lands of other cultures where the Khajiit's actions may be interpreted as "theft." Finally, as a race, the Khajiit are [[SweetTooth highly susceptible]] to [[FantasticDrug Moon Sugar]] addiction. (As well as its more potent derivative, Skooma.)

* ''Manga/FightingFoodons'' has Clawdia, an anthropomorphic cat with pink fur and is a skilled chef. [[spoiler:She [[WasOnceAMan was once a human]] but was cursed and became the feline that she is at the beginning of the series.]]

** VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic also has a Cathar party member with [[BadassGay Juhani]]. The [[PlanetOfHats species hat]] is that they are fierce fighters, loyal to a fault, and tend to run hot and cold emotionally with {{HairTriggerTemper}}s by human standards. If you've made them angry, they'll come at you, claws out. If you get past the prickly exterior and earn their loyalty and trust, they're incredibly sweet.

* Partly subverted in the ''[[Creator/CordwainerSmith Instrumentality Of Mankind]]'' series; most [[UpliftedAnimal Underpeople]], including catfolk, appear almost indistinguishable from humans, but vary greatly in how much of the non-human ancestry comes through, and at least one Lion underperson shows up in [[JeanneDArchetype "The Dead Lady of Clown Town"]] who had fur, a mane, and claws.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' has a very diverse race of cats called the Khajiit. They vary from resembling very slightly cat-like humans or elves to the high end of LittleBitBeastly to full on PettingZooPeople. Only the last still show up in the series directly, but the first two types are still {{Canon}} despite no longer appearing in the games. Including breeds that have never actually shown up in the games but have still been mentioned in scholary treatises in-game, the Khajiit span the ''full'' extent of the sliding scale of anthropomorphism, right down to ones that aren't even ''bipedal''. Some of them could be mistaken for housecats. Others are used as '''[[PantheraAwesome war mounts]]'''.

race of cats called "tiger folk" hailing from the continent of [[{{Wutai}} Akavir]]. As they have not yet made an appearance in-game, it is unknown to what extent they may be similar to the Khajiit.

* The Kzinti in Creator/LarryNiven's ''Literature/KnownSpace'' books are an aggressive alien species resembling bipedal [[PantheraAwesome big cats]] in looks and personality. Or at least, their personality is derived from cat stereotypes.

* The Kzinti in Creator/LarryNiven's ''Literature/KnownSpace'' books are an aggressive alien species resembling bipedal [[PantheraAwesome big cats]] in looks and personality. Or at least, their personality is derived from cat stereotypes. They are not strictly speaking bipedal cats -- their physical features include a naked ratlike tail, ears resembling "pink parasols" or cocktail umbrellas and an almost ferret-like torso with ribs down to the pelvis, but the overall impression is catlike, and that's what they're most often compared to in the books.

* The Sphinx race in SergeyLukyanenko's ''Today, Mom!'' is a race of feline humanoids living on UsefulNotes/{{Venus}}. In the FilmOfTheBook ''Asiris Nuna'', they look mostly human with slight facial features reminiscent of cats and dreads. Their dress and architecture are reminiscent of Ancient Egypt. Shidla is a Sphinx who figures the most in the book and is the only one seen in the film. He snarls a lot and likes to call everyone "kitty". "Dog" is, apparently, an insult to his people. Like cats, they can see in the dark very well. In the film, Shidla dodges missiles [[Film/TheMatrix Neo]]-style.
