* ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}'': Both Megamind and Metro Man are aliens who landed on earth as babies and were raised by humans. Metro Mans ship landed near the mansion of a rich couple and was mostly raised by his loving adoptive mother. Megamind however, ended up crashing into a nearby prison (his pod was originally on the way to the mansion but Metro Mans knocked his off course), and was raised by the inmates. They were nice enough parents but unfortunatly taught him THEIR values, turning him into a criminal.

* The Godzilla starring in ''Fanfic/TheBridge'' is the grown up Godzilla Junior from the Heisei Era, the Mother's Day special highlighting his upbringing under a MotherlyScientist named Azusa Gojo. This is cited as his reason for becoming his world's BigGood and protecting humanity rather than becoming a destructive monster or neutral like his predecessors. Junior even expresses apathy at finding out who his biological mother was, Azusa is the one that counts.

* In ''Literature/{{Strata}}'', Marco the kung was left with an adoptive human family by his parents, who were alien ambassadors to Earth. Kung believe in reincarnation, so when their return to their homeworld was delayed and their son was born on Earth instead, Marco's folks assumed he must've received a ''human'' soul rather than kung, and they wanted him to grow up among "his own kind".

See also MuggleFosterParents, where the adopted child is not an animal, but isn't a normal human either. Humans raising members of other {{demihuman}} races, especially races that are usually hostile to humans, is an inversion of RaisedByOrcs. See also OrcRaisedByElves, in which the adopted parents aren't necessarily humans, but the result is the same.

* Subverted in ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''. Nanoha adopts [[HumanAlien Vivio]], but since Nanoha had already chosen to StayWithTheAliens several years earlier, Vivio is culturally Mid-childan rather than Japanese (though her name is in Japanese order).

* ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'' has the Bowman's Wolves, a genetically-modified UpliftedAnimal in early development. The first generation were placed with human families to ensure they had other sapients to learn from. Florence mentions going to the zoo with her human family to see her birth mother (an ordinary red wolf).

* An episode of Creator/AnimalPlanet's ''Series/FatalAttractions'' featured a man who raised a lion cub as if it were his own child. Said cub in question ended up mauling his actual human daughter. The lion in question had to be shot and killed by the very man who raised her in order to save his daughter.

** Suffice to say, this is very common with non-domesticated animals raised by humans, as they have certain adult behavior and instincts that arent compatible with their human "parent".
