* The Orphe in ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' are bipedal with two major arms, but otherwise look and act insectoid, being linked to each other by a force called the Ovah giving them a hive-like mind. They are technologically astute, but socially limited, and like to eat plants.

* Several races in the StarTrekNovelVerse. Most are highly conservative cultures, and range from the peaceful Nasat, who resemble giant pillbugs and are known for their desire to avoid conflict (see StarfleetCorpsOfEngineers in particular), through the Orishans, to the hostile Cheka, who resemble spiders. There are also Kaferians, Jarada and the wasp-race in the first StarfleetCorpsOfEngineers story.

** A different species, resembling humanoid flies appear in "Planet of the Dead". The TARDIS is not present in this episode to provide TranslatorMicrobes, so you get to hear their actual language (which is composed of clicking sounds). The Doctor translates and makes his own clicking sounds to talk to them.

* In the Soviet two-part sci-fi film ''MoscowCassiopeia'', Lob is a sci-fi fan and is constantly spouting his expectations of aliens. In his mind, they should look somewhat like dragonflies (he calls them "strekozoids" formed from "strekoza", Russian for "dragonfly" and the "-oid" suffix). Unfortunately, he's WrongGenreSavvy, and the aliens are [[HumanAliens humanoid]].

* The "bugs" of [[NewGods New Genesis]] evolved as a result of biological weapons used by Apokolips. They're an intelligent race, though still animalistic in their culture. They're treated with terrible FantasticRacism by the planet's HumanAliens, who regard them literally as vermin (which is highly hypocritical, or at least ignorant, for the inhabitants of a planet that is supposed to very literally represent the side of good). Forager, a new god raised by the bugs, tries to be a bridge between the two peoples.
