* Many alternate branches of ''Franchise/{{Sonic The Hedgehog}}'' treat snakes as this universally. [[Videogame/SonicBoom Lyric]], [[Comicbook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog Mordred Hood, Trey Scales]] and [[Comicbook/SonicTheComic the Crimson Cobra]] are all examples across different media. Lyric gets bonus points as "reptile" is treated as an insult by the heroes (despite turtles being island citizens), something not possible in the other noted branches due to the prominent non-snake aversions that exist in each.

** Komodo Joe was said to run an illegal Cubic Zirconia fraud business, and the concepts released by the ''VideoGame/CrashTwinsanity'' developers showed that he would cheat Crash and Cortex out of Power Crystals while they ended up driving around a course in a car with no brakes.

** Komodo Joe was said to run an illegal Cubic Zirconia fraud business, and the concepts released by the ''VideoGame/CrashTwinsanity'' developers showed that he would cheat Crash and Cortex out of Power Crystals while they ended up driving around a course in a car with no brakes. His very first concept documents suggest that he was originally supposed to be a reptile supremist on top of that.

* Filipino superstition plays with this trope; snakes in the home are seen as a bad omen, but small geckos (referred to as "butiki" in Tagalog) in the home are considered good luck. The latter might be because the geckos do a good job of keeping vermin out of the house.

* ''Franchise/MortalKombat'': Let's hear it for Reptile! He's so abhorrent, he doesn't even need an actual name. However, he's actually a subversion as he's a severe case of a [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Woobie Anti Villain]]; his whole goal was to prevent his race from becoming extinct, but his masters constantly screw over his goal. Doesn't help that Reptile's attitude is more or less a mentally deteriorating YesMan. Aside of him, there's also Khameleon, whose goal is to pull Reptile out of that service and repopulate the race together.
