* ''Anime/GargantiaOnTheVerdurousPlanet'' has an interesting example: Chamber, a [[HumongousMecha Machine Caliber]], has a male voice and is referred to as male by the human characters. However, later we meet another Machine Caliber, Striker, who has a female voice; while Ledo refers to Striker as "her," Chamber opts for "it." Probably not meant to be insult, but Striker ''is'' a villain...

* In ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic,'' Mogamett allows Titus to adopt a {{Muggle}} child named Marga...and then [[KickTheDog kicks]] another Muggle child who was annoying him before commenting how he doesn't understand why Titus wanted one, but he's "glad that he likes it." This is what clues Aladdin in that Mogamett basically sees non-magicians as animals, and Marga as more of a pet than a person.



** In a ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'' story, Superman gets captured by the government and subjected to torture and experimentation. The scientists and ComicBook/LexLuthor refer to him as "it".

Added DiffLines:

* Played with in season 11 of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', when Sam refers to [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Castiel's]] human vessel as an "it". Dean takes offense, arguing it's not an it, it's ''[[TrueCompanions Cas]]''. Since the Winchesters have never interacted with Castiel outside of his vessel (because that would kill them), [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith the vessel is how they perceive him]] -- however, the vessel ''is'' technically separate from Castiel (and no longer houses a human soul), so Sam's designation is accurate and probably isn't meant to be disrespectful; tensions are just running high at that particular moment.
