* ''ComicBook/{{Maus}}'': Drawing all the characters as mice or other animals is the only significant [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality acceptable break from reality]] that this explicitly biographical comic tolerates.

* ''ComicBook/{{Maus}}'': Drawing all the characters as mice or other animals is the only significant [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality acceptable break from reality]] that this explicitly biographical comic tolerates. [[AnimalJingoism Cats vs. mice]] also makes for a convenient visual metaphor, though one that would turn the story into a BrokenAesop if taken too seriously.

* This is almost certainly why ''Pluggers'' uses furries, since the strip is about Midwestern senior citizens.

* Because they found humans to be extremely hard to draw and animate with the technological limitations of the time, most of Pixar's earlier films primarily had either [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory toys]], [[WesternAnimation/ABugsLife insects]], [[WesternAnimation/MonstersInc monsters]], or [[WesternAnimation/FindingNemo fish]] as main characters. It wasn't until 2004's ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' that humans became a large part of the characters in their movies ([[WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} though not always]]).

* ''{{Lugaru}}'' and ''{{Overgrowth}}'' by [[http://www.wolfire.com/ Wolfire Games]] are LowFantasy [[ActionGame fighting games]] that take place an island that is populated entirely by [[FunnyAnimal Borderline]] PettingZooPeople. There are [[WordOfGod three official reasons]] for that:

* Generally subverted in regards to making 3-D MMD (Miku Miku Dance) models of this type. Non-human models are more difficult and complex to make from scratch, let alone animate. A certain skill level and the right software are required to pull it off, so human models are more common.

* Ilya Savchenko claims he even can't draw animals other than toucans. His works include parodies of ''[[http://toucan-house.com/ House M.D.]], [[http://acomics.ru/~depth-of-delusion The Matrix,]]'' and ''[[http://acomics.ru/~stoolmaster Lord of the Rings.]]'' With all characters [[EverythingIsBetterWithPenguins as toucans]]. (No translations, unfortunately.)

* Doc Nickel (artist for ''Webcomic/TheWhiteboard'') has explicitly stated that he used anthropomorphic animal characters because he couldn't draw humans for crap. According to several of his posts on the forums in August 2011, though, he was working on overcoming the problem with drawing humans, with more human characters being given actual details instead of undefined "floating bubbleheads", and [[http://the-whiteboard.com/autotwb1405.html the results]] [[http://the-whiteboard.com/autotwb1403.html were impressive]]. But a few months later he decided to drop humans altogether. He did use [[http://the-whiteboard.com/autotwb1481.html generic human faces]] to replace "the no-necks" when he retroactively coloured strips for winter and spring of 2012, but after that all one-shot characters have been anthropomorphic animals. Also of note is converting [[ThoseTwoGuys Larry and Daryl]] -- the no-necks who gained some depth over time -- to [[http://the-whiteboard.com/autotwb1853.html squirrels]].
