* While vibrant and colourful, the Rock Moths in ''VideoGame/{{Miitopia}}'' are rather huge and are among the numerous creatures that arbor stolen Mii faces. Notably, the pink ones only have Mii eyes on their wings, which make them similar to some RealLife moth species whose wings mimic large eyes to scare off predators.

* Kenneth Oppel's "SuchWickedIntent" has butterflies from the spirit world latch onto the heroes and come into the living world. At first, they're harmless, but slowly become more like an addictive substance. And to boot, the [[spoiler: giant demon at the end of the book]] is completely made out of these butterflies, making it incredibly hard to kill.

* Mothman, a creepy WngedHumanoid with [[RedEyesTakeWarning Red]] GlowingEyesOfDoom sighted in West Virginia. It supposedly causes (or at least prophesies) disaster wherever it goes, with the most infamous example being the collapse of Silver Bridge in 1967, killing 46 people. Another story claims a similar creature was sighted at Chernobyl before the nuclear disaster.

* The currently-online game ''[[http://weatherfactory.biz/cs/main_ui.html Cultist Simulator]]'' uses Moth as the name for "the wild and perilous principle of curiosity and yearning". Restlessness, the main Moth-property item in the prototype so far, is a key component in the eventual horrible doom, because it's a step on the road to sealing yourself to a particular EldritchAbomination and dooming the city you're in. Most of the other principles you can study in the same manner, such as the Red Grail (Hunger) appear to be tied to [[EldritchAbomination the Hours]]; at this stage, there is no Moth endgame, but whether one exists eventually remains to be seen.
