* [[ButterflyOfDeathAndRebirth Golden Butterflies]] show up a lot in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi''. Seeing them usually means you're very big trouble.

* Butterflies in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' appear in areas free of enemies and plesantly flutter about. Poking them with a Deku stick reveals them to be fairies in disguise.

* The first ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' game has [[FinalBoss Pandora]], whose final form is a giant, bipedal butterfly.
** The series as a whole loves its butterfly motif; Philemon, a major character in the first three games (counting both halves of the second game), has ButterflyOfDeathAndRebirth as his his major gimmick, and is never seen without a butterfly mask. The save points in the fourth game even ''are'' butterflies (which according to WordOfGod are Philemon's current manifestation).

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' has Wormy, Sandy's pet caterpillar who transforms into a butterfly. But since there are no butterflies underwater, [[SubvertedTrope everyone thinks it's a hideous monster]].

That said, don't let your guard down around their petite and attractive forms. Butterflies in fiction have an occasional history of being paired with poison; which has made them popular with various [[TheVamp Vamps]] and [[HoneyTrap Honey Traps]] as well as any villain that choose the butterfly motif to represent subtle alluring and deadly deception.

Contrast MacabreMothMotif.MacabreMothMotif (Although if someone is invoking this trope to hide how deadly the butterfly is, then the difference between the two is only skin deep.)
