* Marsh-wiggles from ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia''. [[http://narnia.wikia.com/wiki/The_Chronicles_of_Narnia_Wiki WikiNarnia]] describes them as having "green-grey straw-like hair, large ears, long legs and arms, webbed hands with long fingers...hard webbed feet, similar to those of ducks...a muddy complexion and greenish skin." Oh, and they're also [[PlanetOfHats an entire race of]] [[TheEeyore Eeyores]]--the only one we meet, Puddleglum, is seen as a WideEyedIdealist by his fellow Marsh-wiggles, and ''he'' has lines like:
-->"Those eels will take a mortal long time to cook, and either of you might faint with hunger before they're done. I knew a little girl—but I'd better not tell you that story. It might lower your spirits, and [[HypocriticalHumor that's a thing I never do]]."
-->"The bright side of it is, that if we break our necks getting down the cliff, then we're safe from being drowned in the river."
-->"And you must always remember there's one good thing about being trapped down here: It'll save funeral expenses."
** In his defense, he's a {{Determinator}} who manages to keep Jill and Eustace going, and the sole member of his group who remembers the quest when the others were distracted by promises of food and comfort from Harfang. He realized that [[TheVamp the Lady of the Green Kirtle]] and [[SuperFunHappyThingOfDoom the Gentle Giants of Harfang]] were not to be trusted long before his companions did. And he has several [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome incredibly epic moments]], the most memorable being a ShutUpHannibal which proved that he ''wasn't'' always a complete pessimist.

* Abe Sapien from the ''ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}'' comic and its adaptations in other media. The series also has the frog monsters as a recurring enemy, an {{Expy}} of Lovecraft's Deep Ones.



** Also the toad-like Hynerians, who also happen to be amphibious.
** Another fish-like/toad-like race is the Sheyang. They look like giant anthropomorphic toads and they explode if shot.



* The antagonistic toad-like Wartmongers in ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs''.

* The Zora from ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' games. Though they're [[http://zelda.wikia.com/wiki/Zora much better looking]] and friendlier than most fish people in the post-''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' console games, being elegant, finned blue or red humanoids with head-crests resembling trailing fish tails, the 2D games generally portray them as ugly, Black Lagoon-type monster enemies. ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames Oracle of Ages]]'' explains this by stating that the two species are different kinds of Zora: the sleek and friendly ones are Sea Zoras, while the ugly enemies are River Zoras. Queen Oren of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds A Link Between Worlds]]'' is a sort of hybrid between the two designs, sporting the color scheme and secondary features of the River Zoras but being friendlier and more humanoid like the Sea Zoras. She herself is likely a well-disposed River Zora, as that is the kind she rules over and resembles most.
