** 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 (potentially ''too much'', according to the ''Sun/Moon'' website ), 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.

** By ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', [[PoisonousPerson Grimer and Muk]] have become this thanks to improvements to the environment -- such as a decrease in industrial waste, which they eat for sustenance. Their Alolan offshoots, which adapted to eating garbage instead, seem better off, however.

* In ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'', Nobita tries to exploit this trope by using a gadget that turns him into a endangered species, so that he will be protected by everyone instead of being scolded and bullied as usual. However, this [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor backfires spectacularly]] that not only he is now protected as he wished, his house has also been modified into a zoo-like structure where everyone can enter to see his 'ecology', and he himself is later brought to a lab for study. While no such thing as [[TheyWouldCutYouUp cutting him up]] occurs, the experience is still unpleasant for Nobita as he is treated like a Chimpanzee, complete with fruit-only diet and a playroom where a tire swing is the only thing to entertain him.

* OffWhite: There are no more baby humans being born because of the human white spirit's death. The comic implies this may also lead to the fading away of good, because she was the guardian of good, and the extinction of wolves, because they are a brother species.
