* ''TabletopGame/{{Crimestrikers}}'' is set on Creaturia, a WorldOfFunnyAnimals where one of the species is the Hydrerans, a race of amphibious humanoids. FantasticRacism exists between Hydrera and the land-dwellers--not among most people, but enough to cause trouble for the titular team. One of the heroes, Donacina, is a Hydreran who acts as a role model for interspecies friendship; the villains include Emperor Rasavanto (a Hydreran tyrant who wants to conquer the surface world) and PARCH ([[TheKlan a violent, racist gang]] of anti-Hydreran terrorists).

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', there are several varieties of FishPeople, such as ''D&D'''s sahuagin and locathah and others such as the anglerfish-inspired ceratioidi, [[AlluringAnglerfish who can mesmerize other creatures with their glowing lures]], and the [[SharkMan shark-like]] adaros. Many of these races are products of the Aboleth's influence on ancient human history. Most obvious are the degenerate survivors of an ancient and abandoned slave race, who are technically named Ulat Kini but known by everyone, including themselves, as Scum.

** The LighterAndSofter ''Warhammer'' fantasy football GaidenGame ''TabletopGame/BloodBowl'' has multiple references to Fishmen in its background material even during the periods when its parent game considered them a running gag. The 5th Edition {{Sourcebook}} ''Death Zone: Season Two!'', for instance, mentions the Southstorm Squids, a former Sea Elf team who suffered a hostile takeover at the fins of a group of Fishmen.

* [[ClassicalMythology Lucian]] in A True History describes his crew being swallowed by a several mile long whale or fish. Inside he finds a father and son living on an island beset by multiple tribes of fish people. There were the tuna-heads, the flounder-foots, the crawfish tribe, the crab hands, half-catfish merfolk, among others, and said to carry fish bones as swords and spears. They were demanding a tribute of 500 oysters a year from the father and son, so Lucian and his crew liberated the them by going to war with the fish people and defeating them.
