* Parodied in ''Literature/EarthTheBook'', where images show some of the human ideas of what aliens might look like. Among them were [[Franchise/StarWars Chewbacca]] (with the "Like a bear" subtitle) and Series/{{Alf}} (with the "Like a gay bear" subtitle).

** [[Creator/SergeyLukyanenko Lukyanenko]] did expand on their culture, considering the version he used from the first ''Master of Orion'', which didn't provide much background. In the books, the Bulrathi are a ProudWarriorRaceGuy culture, who value hand-to-hand (or paw, if you want to be technical) combat over standard warfare. They also have [[VocalDissonance falsetto voices]], making them good tenors (when they're not ripping your head off). In fact, their obsession with direct combat leads to them developing a method to defeat the [[SiliconBasedLife Silicoids]]' natural DeflectorShields (most races just shoot at them) using their high-pitched voices in a manner similar to how a singer can shatter a crystal glass with her voice. They are also stated to be scavengers, preferring to eat something that has been dead for days.

They are also stated to be scavengers, preferring to eat something that has been dead for days. In terms of clothing, they generally wear skirts (sometimes metal skirts), since their tough hides can handle almost anything an unarmed human can do to them. A human gift shop on their homeworld has a display of "authentic" Bulrathi armor, except the experienced protagonist immediately assumes it's fake, since it covers far too much body for the HonorBeforeReason Bulrathi.

* In C.J. Cherryh's ''Faded Sun'' trilogy, the companion animals of the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Mri]] were the dusei (singular "dus"), bearlike creatures who were similar to one-owner dogs and somewhat empathic to their masters through touch.

to:

* The Kleibor from the old Pacesetter [=RPG=] ''Star Ace'' are usually good-natured ''psychic'' bears hailing from a mostly-icy planet under the thumb of the setting's EvilEmpire. They can be player characters, which can be handy because of their racial gift for picking up new languages from native speakers in a matter of minutes (in addition to whatever individual other powers they may have) even if their mitt-like hands limit their manual dexterity.

* The Brutes from ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'' combine various traits of gorillas and bears (perhaps with a bit of rhino thrown in).

* ''VideoGame/BattleBlockTheater'' has a gigantic bear living in space [[spoiler: who is shot down at the end of the game by a huge laser coming from an infernal top hat]]. Naturally, nothing of this makes any sense at all, contrary to what the narrator says.
