* In ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', the Ultra Beast Buzzwole, based off a mosquito, resembles a male bodybuilder with muscles formed from blood sacs. Similarly, its counterpart Pheremosa, based off a cockroach, resembles a female supermodel, with a slender body and a hair-like carapace that extends beyond its abdomen. However, only female mosquitoes suck blood, and only male cockroaches are thinner than the females, with a carapace that extends beyond their abdomen. Though both of them are genderless, this feature is likely more of an excuse to make them non-breedable than anything else. However, seeing as how both ''are'' [[EldritchAbomination Ultra Beasts]], this may very well have been [[IntendedAudienceReaction invoked]] in order to make them more bizarre and off-putting.

* ''The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper Feast'' accurately portrays Lizzie Bee as a female worker (although it maintains human gender stereotypes by dressing her as a milkmaid, complete with panniers, presumably of nectar). On the other hand, Harold the Herald is a male gadfly who drinks blood.
