There are even claims that elephants occasionally indulge in necrophilia both with members of their species and with other creatures. On the other hand, they are social animals.

* Strong Sad from ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'', who isn't fully an elephant but has elephant feet which he calls "soolnds". They prevent him from being able to jump, which is true with elephants in real life.

* The United States Republican Party has an elephant as the mascot, perhaps to invoke an image of stability.
** Actually this is an aversion. The elephant symbol comes from a political comic comparing Republicans to Elephants that had gotten fat and corrupt off of said corruption (back then, elephants were seen as taking too much resources and doing too little to justify such an expense). Democrats similarly were being ridiculed by the donkey for being stubborn and stupid, but since those animal traits are still associated with donkeys in modern times so it's easier to see the satire. Unusually, these days the [[InsultBackfire adopting of both animals positive traits]] are better seen with Republicans, through this trope than Democrats (at the time, Democrats countered that the Donkey was useful to farmers, which was once their base).
