* This is used by one of [[OmnicidalManiac Tachyon's]] propaganda machines to refer to lombaxes in ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureToolsOfDestruction''. Tachyon hates lombaxes to genocidal levels, and uses such machines to demonize them and insure that if Ratchet is nearby, everyone will drop what they're doing to kill him.

* ''Film/JurassicWorld'': Owen Grady may be a FriendToAllLivingThings, but [[EveryoneHasStandards even he's unable to fully like]] the ''Indominus Rex''. So much so that when the ''I. Rex'' slaughters a whole herd of ''Apatosaurus'' just ForTheEvulz, he stops referring to her as a "her" altogether and more as an "it".

* Discussed briefly in the StarTrek book ''The Lives of Dax'', when referring to a Trill symbiont as "it" leaves a character uncomfortable.
** In the ''StarTrekNewFrontier'' series, Burgoyne 172, a member of the [[{{Hermaphrodite}} Hermat]] species, explains that they were originally going to use "sheheit" as a pronoun, until discovering that it [[InMyLanguageThatSoundsLike sounds like a rude English word]].

Added DiffLines:

* [[BigBad Calamity Ganon]] in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' is mainly referred to as "it" by various characters rather than "him" as in previous ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]]'' games. This has a sinister justification in-universe: by this point in the timeline, Ganon has turned into an EldritchAbomination no longer exhibiting anything recognizably human or individual, so the "it" indicates that the people of Hyrule view Ganon as an incorporeal force of evil rather than a person.

** Two companions ([=MacReady=] and Cait) react negatively to [[spoiler:Danse]] being revealed to be a synth. But while [=MacReady=] still calls him a "him", saying if [[spoiler:you kill Danse]], "Keeping him around was too dangerous", Cait will refer to him as an it, even saying if [[spoiler:you kill Danse]], "Good. Thought that thing would never shut up."

* In ''Fanfic/AdorableMurderbeasts'', Trainer Red refers to Zapdos with "It". Not to demean it, or out of gender confusion, but because unlike his other Pokemon, Zapdos is more like a living force of nature, and [[BlueAndOrangeMorality tends to think like one]].
