* 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.
-->''I knew a man who captured moths in a bell-jar. On nights like this, he would release them one by one to die in the candle.''

** In the video for "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ompevuR1644 Lift]]," Poet County Jail inmate and MadDreamer Mark is very attached to his {{Hallucinations}} of moths, pleading with them to make him fly, and consistently makes the shape with his cuffed hands when undergoing psych screening. He's diagnosed with delusional parasitosis and finally deemed a "Menace to society" as a result.

* Rosine from ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' looks like a cute, humanoid luna moth. So why does she belong here? Well, she's an [[DealWithTheDevil Apostle]], and her realm of humans-transformed-into-fairies quickly turns into a SugarApocalypse and Rosine herself proves to be a very dangerous opponent even before she goes OneWingedAngel and takes on a truly monstrous form.

* From the ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'' series, while [[TheHero Bayonetta]] has a butterfly motif, [[TheRival Jeanne]], who acts as Bayonetta's enemy for most of the first game, has a moth motif. This even extends as far as the demons they have a contract with, with Bayonetta being contracted to Madama Butterfly, and Jeanne contracted to Madama Styx (a moth woman). [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] by the end of the game and the [[{{VideoGame/Bayonetta2}} sequel]] when it turns out Jeanne isn't evil after all, but then again, DarkIsNotEvil is a running theme in these games.
