* The ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' series has deemed the Lapras species 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.

** 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]].

* One of ''{{Doraemon}}'''s authors once drew an {{Anvilicious}} comic about humans being hunted to extinction because their bodies were considered to be a potent cure for hairiness (apparently, they don't have Nair in the future). The last two humans end up stranded on an island where a rare lizard (or salamander) was hunted to extinction by earlier humans.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/DragonBones'', there are no new dwarves being born, due to a mysterious illness that has something to do with there being no dragons in Hurog anymore. It doesn't seem to actually kill them, just causing the population to shrink.

* After conquering a race's last planet in ''{{Spore}}'', any surviving ships will have their label changed from [Name of Species] to Pirate, suggesting that Pirates encountered in the game are actually surviving members of conquered species.

* As of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', the sky bison are now an endangered species (though since Appa was originally believed to be the LastOfHisKind this is actually an ''improvement''). Doesn't stop {{evil poacher}}s Evil Poachers]] from stealing baby bison for the [[CruellaToAnimals Earth Queen]] to feast on.
