* The ImpliedLoveInterest of ''Theatre/{{Luzia}}'' is called the Running Woman; [[AllThereInTheManual according to the website]], she represents "speed" and is part of the general nature metaphor of the show. She wears a dress that looks like a monarch butterfly, and the beginning briefly gives her matching wings.

* In ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'', a certain female character's profile states that she loves butterflies. [[spoiler: The character is [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII Kolin]] aka Gill's SexySecretary, who probably likes them because she saw [[ButterflyOfDeathAndRebirth a butterfly coming out from its coccoon]] right as Gill saved her from a DeathByDespair [[SnowMeansDeath in the snow]] and took her into Main/TheIlluminati.]]

* ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' has the Nemesites, an alien race of semi-humanoid butterflies. Hibachi the dragon (who is in love with the Nemesite princess, Voluptua) describes her with, "You fly on wings like unto the stained glass of a cathedral."

* A little known MatchThreeGame called ''[[http://old.absolutist.com/butterflight/ Butterflight]]'' allows you to collect butterflies while soothing ambient music plays in the background. Even though the premise is that the player is a Lord (regardless of gender) of the Butterflies who needs to regain their wings by collecting their winged friends, it's quite obvious through gameplay that ''Butterflight'' is a ploy to just stare at the butterflies and kill time.

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 some darker trait like 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 how they are subtle alluring and deceptively deadly.

Contrast 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.)
