Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/EmpireEarth'': One of the tutorials has you guide Phoenicean settlers to build a thriving Mediterranean colony, including fending off ''tiger'' attacks. Made even weirder by the fact that wolves are available in the editor.
* ''VideoGame/AgeOfEmpires'' features, among others, a whale in the Nile and crocodiles in Italy.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'': One mission has Thrall explore a mountain cavern in the thus far desert and forested continent of Kalimdor, when he comes across several sheep. He then recalls not having seen any since they'd arrived, prompting a sorceress to comment that Thrall's bright for an orc, before undoing the enchantment and ambushing him with several un-polymorphed footmen.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' give us Yungoos, which is clearly based on mongoose in Hawaii. Yungoos are an alien species to Alola that were introduced to the region in a misguided attempt to control the population of another Pokémon. Given what happened with mongoose in Hawaii and the fact Yungoos are ComMons, it can be safely assumed that Yungoos were active at the wrong time of day to carry out their intended purpose and thrived without natural predators, leaving Alola with an invasive population of [[HairTriggerTemper bad tempered]] {{Big Eater}}s.

** Among the Bandar-log, the gibbons are presumed to be western hoolock gibbons,the only gibbon species native to India (the eastern hoolock gibbon might also be present in eastern Arunachal Pradesh). However, it is only found in the northeastern part of India, and does not share a range with the lion-tailed macaque, which is native to the ''southwestern'' part of India. Same goes for most of the other monkeys - the other macaque species represented appears to be a pig-tailed macaque, likely the northern pig-tailed macaque. There are also golden langurs and Nilgiri langurs. However, the northern pig-tailed macaque and golden langur are also found only in the northeastern states of India, and wouldn't have hung out with the lion-tailed macaques. The Nilgiri langur, like the lion-tailed macaque, is endemic to southwestern India. ''None of these species are found in the Seoni area''. Only the gray langurs fit biogeographically - they're probably meant to be southern plains gray langur, which is the species native to central India. It's really odd that they chose a number of more exotic-looking monkey species that while Indian, don't occur in this area at all, while omitting the rhesus macaque, which ''is'' found in central India.

* ''Film/{{Airplane}}'' somehow had an actual turkey vulture. On the other hand, the elephant in Stryker's Africa flashback was actually an Asian elephant.

* Like everything else in ''Film/RobinHoodMenInTights'', used intentionally and PlayedForLaughs. The 12th Century Fox that they use to send a message [[note]]i.e. a pun on "to fax"[[/note]] is a grey fox, which aren't native to England. To add to the absurdity, it makes the sound of [[Series/{{Flipper}} a dolphin]] as it runs off. The "happy little bluebird" isn't a native species, either.

* The common pheasant, originally native to southwestern Asia, began being introduced to other parts of the Northern Hemisphere in Roman times. Less destructive than many of the above examples, it's blended into ecosystems of Europe and North America so seamlessly that it's now the state bird of South Dakota, despite being unheard-of on the continent before 1881. Ironically, captive-bred lines of pheasants released for hunting have mostly replaced the original wild pheasants in their native habitats, making this a case of an introduced species supplanting ''itself''.
