* ''Literature/JonathanStrangeAndMrNorrell'' takes the [[TheFairFolk Fair Folk]] trope and adjusts it to fit the [[RegencyEngland Georgian-era]] setting. The basic concept, as [[FootnoteFever one of the many easy-to-miss footnotes]] explains, is that logic and magical ability are diametrically opposed; humans have great powers of logic and very little magical skill, while Faeries have tremendous magical power but most of them would be considered severely mentally ill by human standards. Accordingly, they don't even need wings since they can travel wherever on Earth they want via the King's Roads, and they wear clothes that are made of broken dreams or are "[[FictionalColor the color of heartbreak]]" or that sing or scream. They also have tremendous powers that no human can fight while simultaneously having a wide variety of [[WeaksauceWeakness Weaksauce Weaknesses]], and are shown to stay out of human affairs less for the standard reasons than because they just don't care--they'd rather be at their all-night balls. In other words, they're a ShadowArchetype of what human British society was like at the time.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' have always had a few creatures that are based on fairies and fairy-like creatures. Many of them are [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter small adorable creatures]] like Clefairy, Roselia and Snorunt. All of them belong to an egg group (a classification of Pokemon that can [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction breed with each other]]) called the Fairy egg group (including SeriesMascot Pikachu). It wasn't until ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' that Fairy was introduced as an actual type. It was introduced to [[{{Nerf}} combat the overpowered]] [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Dragon types]]. Many older Pokemon [[{{Retcon}} were given the new type]]. These range from the previously mentioned Clefairy, to more mystic ones like Gardevoir and devious ones like Mawile.

The Fairy-types introduced in later generations include the elegant and stately Florges, the mischievous key-stealing Klefki, Ribombee, which approaches the traditional winged humanoid image by way of being a humanoid bee, and the [[OlympusMons legendary]] Xerneas, [[TheMarvelousDeer a massive deer]] and effectively a god of rebirth.

The other, human-sized, is a [[TheSlacker lazy bum]] who uses magic to do everything without ever getting up from her couch.
