* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' has quite a few of these. In addition to common fantasy races that fall into this trope (such as minotaurs), you have Homarids (crab people), Viashino (lizard people), Cephalids (squid people), Nantuko (insect people), Aven (bird people), Leonin (cat people), Nacatl (different cat people), Loxodon (elephant people), Kitsune (fox people), Nezumi (rat people), Orochi (snake people), Amphin (salamander people), Wolfir (wolf people), and, in a parody set, Assfolk (donkey people). Sometimes merfolk are also depicted not as half-human, half-fish, but as full-on fish people and, on Lorwyn, faeries are basically insect people.



* Some creatures in Myth/ClassicalMythology, like Centaurs, [[ALoadOfBull Minotaur]] and [[FaunsandSatyrs Satyrs]].

* Several monsters from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' look like this, such as Toriel who resembles an anthropomorphic goat, albeit with a few other characteristics, such like bunnies and [[Film/TheNeverendingStory luck dragons]]. Toriel may have been inspired by a creature from Irish mythology called a puca, which often appeared a humanoid with goat like features.

* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', one of the two races, the Zoozians, are Petting Zoo People, although they show a very broad range from more humanoid to more animalistic (and in one odd case, more robotic) features. They come in every kind of animal form, some more aquatic and some more land-based. They are unfortunately subject to FantasticRacism by the human race, the Endras. Somehow, the two species can produce [[HalfHumanHybrid children]] although it's rare because of the racial prejudice.

* In the second cartoon series, series of ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'', the Chipmunks are the size of 9-year-old human children but not in have the two live-action movies, WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks are either Borderline Petting Zoo People or straight-up Petting Zoo People heads of rodents. In the case of the Chipettes, there should be an emphasis on the "people" part: they have animal-like faces, but they have human hair and apparently no fur apart from it (borderline the Chipettes are Borderline LittleBitBeastly.LittleBitBeastly).

Canine heads and tails on human, fur-covered bodies. Most have human legs, but some have legs more like canine hind legs, as researchers experiment with other forms. Other Mutant Animals in the Coalition, as well as the experimental animals from South America, follow the same pattern.
** ''The Palladium Fantasy RPG'', made by the same company (and whose races have crossed over into ''{{Rifts}}'', has the Wolfen, Coyles, and Kankoran, three races that resemble (respectively) humanoid wolves, coyotes, and foxes.
