* ''Manga/KomiSanWaKomyushouDesu'' makes a RunningGag out of Komi sprouting cat ears when she gets excited about something. This is even lampshaded in one chapter, when she's up late at night worrying about things she might have done to embarrass herself, and one of her "anxiety points" is "Why do I sometimes grow cat ears?"

* An actual plot point in one episode of ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'', where Naota grows a pair of cat ears he's trying to hide. [[spoiler: They turn out to be the nascent legs of an alien robot sprouting from [[ThinkingUpPortals the N.O. portal in his head]], and due to accidentally transferring his N.O. to Ninamori earlier in the episode the ears suddenly transfer to her briefly before the robot emerges and takes over her body.]]

* In a 1930s ''{{Popeye}}'' cartoon, a Creator/MaeWest expy is brazenly flirting with Popeye and smacking around Olive Oyl, who finally downs a can of spinach and momentarily sprouts cat ears while [[DesignatedGirlFight yowling and hissing!]]

* In ''RurouniKenshin'', Megumi's NoblewomansLaugh is occasionally accompanied by growing fox ears. Her nickname on the show itself is "Kitsune-onna" (literally "Fox Woman") or "Vixen" in the English version.
* The cursed characters in ''FruitsBasket'' sometimes take on characteristics of their animal selves in comedic situations:

* Tamaki (who's basically a GenkiGirl in a {{bishonen}}'s body) does this with puppy ears once in a while in ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub''.
* Happens a few times with Hazuki in the first part of Tsukuyomi, before she gets into the habit of wearing a CatEaredHeadband. This was initially intended to be only an occasional gimmick, sometimes done with headbands and other times with this trope, until the Anime made it a central aspect of the entire design, and then went on to add cat ears to everything, with absolutely no exceptions.
* In the ''YamiNoMatsuei'' anime series, Tsuzuki gets dog ears and a tail a few times when acting especially {{keet}}ish. This has apparently lead some fans to think he can actually turn into a dog if they don't get the visual metaphor.
* Ichigo literally has her kitty features (ears and occasionally a tail) pop up when she gets excited or nervous in ''TokyoMewMew''. Later on, it accelerates to actually becoming an adorable kitten. Unlike others, this is actually canon, and a plot point, and also leads to a lot of awkward scenes of her having to stick her head in bushes or suddenly having to find a quick way to hide them.
* Yuzuriha in ''{{X1999}}'' (especially when trying to cheer Kamui up) has pointy dog ears because her spirit animal is a dog.
