* The Buggers, by the end of ''[[EndersGame Ender's Game]]'', have been reduced to a single Queen. Much of ''Speaker for the Dead'' revolves around finding a suitable home for her so she can start a new hive. This is particularly notable because in ''Game'', the Buggers were hated and feared by humans, and it was Ender's own work that led people to regret their (near) genocide.

** The Lapras species has been deemed to be one. Due to their high intelligence and relatively powerful nature, humans have over-hunted it to near-extinction. Therefore, the only one you can get in ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' is from an employee guarding it at Silph Co. Later generations were slightly kinder to it; in the ''Red and Blue'' remakes, it can also be found by Surfing in the Icefall Cave, in ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' (plus Crystal and the remakes) one can be found in Union Cave every Friday, some can be found on Victory Road in ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' (plus ''Platinum''), some wild ones are available in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 and the sequel]] at Village Bridge, and some are available in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' both in the wild and with one given away. However, while their population appears to be slowly recovering, they are still incredibly rare in-game.

* ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' has the Monoblos, which pretty much exists to underscore that fact that the Hunters' effect on the ecology is actually monitored and kept in check. The Monoblos are endangered, and as such the Guild will never permit targeted hunts and will only sign off on private quests if the specific beast is threatening a population center.

This is [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration reflected in gameplay]], quests to hunt the Monoblos will only ever appear in the offline singleplayer "village" quests, and never in the online "guild" quests.

** Farfetch'd is stated to have been hunted to near extinction because its meat tastes good when served with the leeks it carries as a weapon.

* In the ''{{Franchise/Alien}}'' franchise, the RuleOfDrama ensures somebody always seems to want to capture a live xenomorph for study rather than exterminate them...

* A strong theme in the ''{{Oddworld}}'' series. Scrabs and Paramites have been hunted down by Glukkons to make processed food (with Meeches going extinct), Gabbits were hunted down by Vyykers for the wide variety of uses they had with only Munch [[spoiler:and 150 Gabbiar eggs]] left, and Steef were hunted for ''sport'' by Sekto [[spoiler:and of these we only ever see two - Stranger, and Sekto's host body after he's discarded it]].
