* When ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' does an animal theme (which is often), usually have some stock badass animals they like to use -- but then there's usually also an oddball choice. Some of these aren't obscure in general, but they evoke a similar reaction in the show's action-superhero context; for instance, a lot of viewers were confused by the Black Ranger having a frog zord in the later parts of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''.

* ''{{Redwall}}'' is known for focusing on the seldom used ends of the mustelid spectrum, such as stoats.
** Many major villains are the only ones of their kind seen in the entire series, Ublaz (pine marten) and Gulo (wolverine) in particular. There was even a ''wolf'' as a PosthumousCharacter (his skull is worn by the villain who calls himself the Foxwolf).

* The ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' universe is full of this. Not the least of which are echidnas (most famously Knuckles), lynx (Nicole, Lightning Lynx, et al.) and mongooses (Mina and Ash). And with the reboot we can add pikas (Relic), bettas (Coral), water buffaloes (Axel), and pistol shrimp (as-yet unnamed character).
