* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Although Gem types fulfill roles more typical of a FantasticCasteSystem (corresponding to human occupations like engineers or architects, and even having nobility), they vary greatly in shape, size, physical ability, and [[ComboPlatterPowers various powers]] even if though they're all humanoid and fully sapient. These differences come from deliberate design instead of evolution, as the whole race (except perhaps their leaders, [[BigBadDuumvirate the Diamond Authority]]) seems to have been created artificially. In one commonality with bees, they are [[OneGenderRace all female]]--there's no equivalent to drones because gems [[BizarreAlienReproduction are grown from the ground using machines]]. This origin makes Homeworld denizens completely ignorant of how other sentient species, such as humans, are born and named. On many occasions, Homeworld Gems believe that individually named humans are representative of a type of human, such as when Aquamarine and Topaz are sent by Yellow Diamond to collect [[spoiler:"My Dad, a Connie, a Lars, a Sadie, a Mailman, and an Onion-I-Think" for the Human Zoo, based on something Steven once said to Peridot about humans prior to her HeelFaceTurn]].

* The Vord from ''Literature/CodexAlera'', which adapt different sub-species to deal with specific situations. Vord Queens, Vord warriors, wax spiders (which fill the "worker" slot) and [[PuppeteerParasite Takers]] are the standard castes, but there are many more beyond that which are created during the course of the series.
