[[caption-width-right:300:ThatsNoMoon. That's ''[[{{Moe}} adorable]]''.]]

{{Moe}}fication of either characters who are not normally moe, or [[CompanionCube objects and concepts which are not even alive]]. Very popular with FanArt and merchandise. Often referred to as "''gijinka''", the Japanese word for "anthropomorphism".

The ''mecha musume'' -- basically, battle vehicles or HumongousMecha rendered as cute girls -- are a common form of moe anthropomorphism. Can also overlap with CuteMonsterGirl if the moefied character is a monster. If the original character is male, GenderFlip may be a component, although boy implementations do occasionally happen.

Could easily be NightmareFuel for some, depending on what is changed, what it looks like, and its gender.

Compare AnthropomorphicPersonification, SexyWhateverOutfit.

* The notorious WebOriginal/OSTan[=s=] are moe versions of operating systems and programs; their boob size is often proportional to memory requirements. Windows ME-tan is the EnsembleDarkHorse, who became a popular character for her good intentions but decidedly unstable nature (and her cute IdiotHair). Windows 2000-tan is a professional, reserved woman, Windows XP-tan has excellent [[UnusualEuphemism graphical capabilities]], and Windows Vista-tan has transparencies and [[GagBoobs even more memory requirements]] (except for Basic-tan who's a {{tsundere}} little girl). Windows 95-tan is a YamatoNadeshiko carrying a {{katana|sAreJustBetter}}, destroying Microsoft's PC competition once and for all, and eats very little memory. Norton Anti-Virus is portrayed as a lecherous, ghostly doctor who makes the girls strip naked even for the most minor ailments; [=McAfee=] as a faith healer; and AVG as a handsome student doctor. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=io6fH9wJ7cM Also with theme song.]]
** There are Linux-tans as well. Linux-tan herself is a bit of a ShrinkingViolet, and Slack-tan is a WrenchWench. There are also Unix-tans, with UNIX-tan herself being somewhat a {{tsundere}}. ([[http://juzo-kun.deviantart.com/art/Linux-tan-Lineart-23093548 Here]] is a pretty good lineup of the major ones.)
*** Now an AscendedMeme, as Microsoft's got an official OS-tan for the Japanese release of Windows 7, [[PunnyName Nanami Madobe]]. Not only that, she's voiced by NanaMizuki. [[SevenIsNana See the pattern?]]
*** Microsoft Taiwan released a mascot for Silverlight, [[http://www.microsoft.com/taiwan/silverlight/default.htm Aizawa Hikaru.]]
** In Japan, a [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2009-12-21/microsoft-bing-search-engine-enlists-japanese-voices campaign]] run by Bing (MSN's search engine) from December 18, 2009-to January 18, 2010, which has closed on February 18, had five mascots: Nanae, Nana, Nanako, another Nanami, and Nanao.
** Windows 8 now has two official mascots, Madobe Yuu and Madobe Ai [[PunnyName (You and I)]].
** Microsoft's cloud based Windows Azure platform has Claudia Madobe.
** Microsoft Singapore [[http://www.internetexplorertan.com turned Internet Explorer]] into a MagicalGirl.
* ''LightNovel/{{Akikan}}!'' does this for soda cans. These soda girls need carbon dioxide infusions (through kissing) to live. Japan really can make anything ''moe''.
* Okayama Prefecture in Japan has anthropomorphized their prized [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2011-07-11/rie-kugimiya-rina-satou-3-others-voice-moe-jelly homegrown-jellies]] into moe girls.
* A few {{Vocaloid}} characters have elements of this, and one plays it completely straight. [[http://images.wikia.com/vocaloid/images/a/aa/Illu_Vocaloid_Gachapoid.jpg Ryuto]], also known as Gachapoid, is a male anthropomorphism of beloved Japanese children's tv character Gachapin. Hatsune Miku's design is heavily based on the Yamaha [=DX7=] and [=DX100=] synthesizers. Kagamine Rin and Len have elements from the Yamaha EOS keyboard in their design. Kamui Gakupo has many elements of digital music, such as spectrograms and equalizers, portrayed as samurai gear, and Megurine Luka has elements of brass instruments in her design.
* Fruity Loops (a music synthesizer program) has [[http://tsukasa.jidder.de/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/flchan.png FL-chan]], popular among the {{Vocaloid}} fandom. Some of the official plugins have these, too, like [[http://www.image-line.com/documents/Chan_1.png Harmless-chan]] (a CuteMonsterGirl, ironically) and her counterpart [[http://www.image-line.com/documents/HarmorChan_nothingToAdd.png Harmor-chan.]]
* Several Japanese railways have their trains Moe-fied.
* [[http://www.asianoffbeat.com/default.asp?display=2129 Ryohoji Buddhist Temple]] in Tokyo-suburb Hachio-ji City successfully raised attendance by anthropomorphizing its patron deities into moe mascots.
* A magazine ad for the Asus ROG Crosshair IV Extreme motherboard has it in the form of a [[FetishFuelStationAttendant short-haired brunette in a techno-fetish costume]], holding a {{BFG}} three times her size and based on the device's design. Not very "moe" but still.
* [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/pool/show/324 Habanero-tan]] is a cute loli pepper thing based on a habanero-flavored snack chip. There is also Jalapeño-tan, [[CoolBigSis Habanero-neesan]], and [[GagBoobs Milk-san]]. Jolokia-tan, the hottest pepper in the world, is the AlphaBitch.

* The Witch forms of former Puella Magi (ex: [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/1301185/5girls-akemi_homura-black_hair-blonde_hair-blue_ey Candeloro, Gretchen, Oktavia, Gretchen Homulilly]]) are anthropomorphized. Of course this is Justified as all the Puella Magi are young girls.
* ''LightNovel/{{Kampfer}}'' does this in its {{eyecatch}}es for the {{Creepy Doll}}s that grant the heroines their powers. While in doll form they look like cute animals that just committed suicide in a variety of ways, in human form they look like PettingZooPeople, focusing more on the cute than the creepy.
* ''Anime/BinchouTan'' is an anime about Anthropomorphic '''charcoal''' in the form of chibi girls.
* The anime series ''Anime/{{Yatterman}}'' did [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIZ_5d6ylZM Obama-kun]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrLCNx3hZXM and Hilary-chan]].
* Nanako, the partially-anthropomorphised form of the [[{{BFG}} Seventh Scripture]] in ''{{Tsukihime}}''. Ditzy little half-unicorn girl that is only visible to those with intense magical potential, have spilled their blood on it, and weird people like Shiki.
* Parodied in ''Manga/NyoronChuruyaSan'' with "Dust-chan", who is shortly disposed of via vacuum cleaner.
** She always comes back. *shudder*
* ''Toei Robot Girls'', which is exactly what it sounds like. Toei Animation {{Super Robot}}s turned into cute girls.
** ''RobotGirlsZ'' adds even more girls to the lineup, namely ones styled after the titular robots of the [[MazingerZ Mazinger]] franchise.
* The "Angel Chromosome XX" line of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' merchandise portrayed the Angels as cute girls, including portraying Lilith as Rei Ayanami.
** [[spoiler: Tabris is a female Kaworu Nagisa.]]
* ''KoihimeMusou'' for RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms.
* Franchise/{{Gundam}} has ''MS Girl'' or ''MS Shojo'', published in the ''Gundam Ace'' monthly magazine since 1982 by MikaAkitaka, making them the origin of mecha musume. The first collection artbook was released in 1994.
** In 1985, Bandai released the Armored Lady Original Characters for ''Z-Gundam'' and ''Macross'', Mecha Musume that predates the 1994 artbook. [[http://farm1.static.flickr.com/219/483223952_59b7f47b24.jpg]]
* ''ArkAngels'' features [[PettingZooPeople personified versions of various endangered animals]] as well as of the planets of our solar system (plus Earth's moon).
* {{Genderswap}} a few character from ''SaintSeiya''... and voila! [[http://www.projectharuhi.net/?p=2470 Moe versions]] of the western zodiac signs!
* [[EquippableAlly The Seven Sisters of Purgatory]] from ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' are demonic stakes given the form of [[OlderThanTheyLook teenage girls.]] Plus, they are each an AnthropomorphicPersonification of the SevenDeadlySins. Nightmare Fuel for most, Fetish Fuel for some, including Battler, who refers to them as "the ass nee-chans."
* [[Anime/CControl Money and Soul]] Has [[HornedHumanoid M]][[MsFanservice s]][[FieryRedhead y]][[{{Tsundere}} u]], the moe personification of the protagonist's ''future''. Yes, that's right: This show makes '''''an abstract concept''''' moe.
** Along the same lines, [[spoiler:Madoka Kaname]] in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' basically [[InvokedTrope invokes]] this by [[spoiler:[[AbstractApotheosis "becoming hope,"]]]] transforming herself into an adorable law of the universe.
* Nase Yamato's ''ChinkoNoTsubuyaki'' makes ''penises'' cute. Sentient talking penises possessed by other male spirits. Yeah. They're actually pretty cute.
* Sentou Yousei Shoujo Tasukete! Mave-chan is an entire show based upon Moe Anthropomorphisms of the aircraft from the anime ''Franchise/SentouYouseiYukikaze.''
* ''LightNovel/JinruiWaSuitaiShimashita'' has moe [[spoiler:deep space probes]]. Well, [[spoiler:Pion]] is moe, [[spoiler:Oyage is more bishounen]].
* The heroines of StrikeWitches become something like this when donning their strike units based on real-life WWII tanks and fighters.
* What about rifles and machine guns made into elementary/middle/high schoolers? That is the premise of {{Upotte}}.
* Even Pokemon has had plenty of gijinkas created for it. There are comics and more than one group on DeviantArt.
** PokemonReburst is the most prominent example of this. However, the manga subverts this by using technologies to turn humans into Pokemon gijinkas.
* There are gijinka of ''ShizukuChan'' characters in fandom. The examples in this [[http://shop.shizukuchan-tv.jp/ link]] won a contest held by Basic inc., which was used for the design of iPhone covers.
* ''LightNovel/ProblemChildrenAreComingFromAnotherWorldArentThey'' has Black Percher being the Moe Anthropomorphism of TheBlackDeath, with her real name being Pestilence/Pest.
* ''Manga/SilverSpoon'' takes place in an agricultural high school. Nishikawa, who is from a crop farming family but also an anime and gaming otaku, tends to use this trope:
** When he's given the task to decorate a sled, he decorates it with anthropomorphized moe ''artificial fertilizers'', and names them "[=NPK48=]", a pun on {{AKB48}} ("NPK" standing for Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium).
** Much later in the story he presents breeds of potatoes anthropomorphizing them as various types of girls.
* Because the fan can't exactly recall the details of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' in ''WebVideo/VaguelyRecallingJoJo'', he replaces a few characters with cute anthropomorphic versions.
** Cursed Devo's Ebony Devil looks like a cute little boy with antennae and is wearing a teddy bear costume.
** Jotaro gets another Star Platinum, who is probably a cosplay for the Runaway Girl.
** Mariah's Bastet gets turned into a version of [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Taokaka]] with outlet paws.

* The J.J. Abrams ''Film/StarTrek'' movie has given us [[http://www.projectharuhi.net/?p=1249 Enterprise-tan and Narada-tan]]. [[EvilIsSexy Oh,]] ''[[WhipItGood my]].''
** Maiden Voyage, indeed.
* Almost half of the ''WesternAnimation/WallE'' fanart on DeviantArt makes them into humans, or at least androids. And they usually manage to make even ''AUTO'' look [[http://schiffercake.deviantart.com/art/Human-WALL-E-Characters-94599797 cute]]. There's also a [[Webcomic/WallETheHumanTouch fancomic]] based around this concept.
* The same can be said for ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo''.
* {{Pixiv}} has provided Moe Jaegers from ''Film/PacificRim'': [[http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=big&illust_id=37122685 Gypsy Danger]], [[http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=big&illust_id=37140666 Cherno Alpha]], [[http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=37125579 Crimson Typhoon]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Based on Folklore]]
* ''Entaku Seitokai'' (''Round Table Student Council'') does this for the King Arthur legends. Heroic knights of old turned into the cute girls of today. A liberal amount of GenderFlip is also applied in this instance.
** The visual novels ''Knight Carnival!'' and ''12+'' also provide moe versions of Arhurian legends.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Based on History]]
* ''AxisPowersHetalia'' is a notable example of male moe anthropomorphism, featuring countries in human form.
* [[http://www.sankakucomplex.com/2009/11/27/national-moe/ This book]] (site has some {{NSFW}} ads) about Moe countries, ''74 Countries Turned Into Bishoujo'', continues the ''Hetalia'' tradition, only all-female. And yes, North Korea is included.
** It's hilarious how England looks almost exactly like [[LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima Louise]].
* ''MoeMoeNijiTaisen'' does this for UsefulNotes/WorldWarII ''planes'' and ''tanks''. They battle by causing ClothingDamage.
* Along the lines of ''Axis Powers Hetalia'' the [[WebComic webmanga]] and web novel series ''Miracle Train ~Chūō-sen e Yōkoso~'' about the [[http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2372.html Japan Railways Chuo Train Line]] has five of its major stations (Zero '''Tokyo''', Shintaro '''Shinjuku''', Riku '''Nakano''', Takuto '''Kichijōji''', and Luna '''Tachikawa''') personified as {{bishonen}}. We're not kidding, official site [[http://miracletrain.jp/comic/index.html here]] and Anime News Network report [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2009-03-02/tokyo-chuo-train-line-made-into-moe-boy-characters here]]. The characters have even been given voice actors.
** There's also an anime called MiracleTrain, though it focuses on the Oedo line instead of the Chuo line.
* StrikeWitches: Probably the most well-known example for military Moe Anthropomorphism.
* There's a bunch of models for AP'd WW2 planes as little girls with the appropriate national costumes and plane parts as clothes/prosthetic limbs. Surprisingly not very moe, or at least their eyes aren't.
* ''Webcomic/AfganisuTan'', a Japanese [[WebComic online]] YonKoma about the history of Afghanistan. Infamous for presenting the September 11th attacks as a rogue [[CatsAreMean cat]] ([[KarmaHoudini Al-Nyada]]) biting [[{{Eagleland}} Meriken]].
* Green Dam, the Chinese censorship/nanny tool once said to be a mandatory installation on all the country's new computers (until the government apparently backed down), was Moefied as a protest. Mildly {{NSFW}} link [[http://www.danwei.org/net_nanny_follies/green_dam_girl.php here]].
* The [[KaijuDefenseForce Japan Self-Defense Force]] even had their own [[http://cache.gawker.com/assets/images/io9/2009/11/kaizoku01_01.jpg moe mascots]]. So much for fighting lolis.
** Connected with that is [[http://maiwaifu.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/maritan2.jpg Mari-tan]], the personification of the U.S. Marine.
* There was some fanart floating around that moe'd several [[http://fc08.deviantart.com/fs40/f/2009/018/e/3/Lucky_Nazi_by_Sunahime.png World War II]] figures.

*** Josef Mengele. (Link died) Note the CuteLittleFangs and [[HairDecorations scalpel barrettes]].
* Moe Hayabusa space probe! [[http://www.nekomagic.com/?p=13486 Yes.]]
* Just to prove that yes, ''nothing'' can avoid moe anthropomorphism, we present you with [[http://www.sankakucomplex.com/2010/10/28/japan-fights-china-with-moe-china-crushed/ Japanese-made gijinka of a Chinese slur for the Japanese]] (ads and much of the other parts of this site are '''NSFW''').
* [[http://nocturna.noor.jp/n-n/noctnavy.htm Japanisches Kaiserriech Mitternacht Marine]] is a webcomic revolving around the various personifications of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII weaponry, like planes and tanks.
* Hitler had already gotten the moe-treatment, but [[http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/650508-rule-63 other dictators aren't safe either]].
* As an extension of the above, some World War II generals like Eisenhower, UsefulNotes/DouglasMacArthur, Rommel and Zhukov are also given the treatment, from the same company that brought the "Moe Dictators" series.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Based on Literature]]
* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' does this for [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecraftian]] {{Eldritch Abomination}}s; Nyarlathotep the Crawling Chaos is a silver-haired GenkiGirl who loves {{Anime}} and {{Toku}}, Hastur the Unspeakable One is a CuteShotaroBoy in a yellow hoodie, and Cthulhu (or at least one of his minions) is a busty green-haired woman who owns [[Film/BackToTheFuture Doc Brown's Delorean]].
** Doll/model kit company Volks has cute anime-style Barbie-sized dolls based on [[http://www.volks.co.jp/en/lostangelsstory/doll/cthulhu/index.html Cthulhu]], [[http://www.volks.co.jp/en/lostangelsstory/doll/nyarlathotep/index.html Nyarlathotep]], [[http://www.volks.co.jp/en/lostangelsstory/doll/hastur/index.html Hastur]] and [[http://www.volks.co.jp/en/lostangelsstory/doll/ithaqua/index.html Ithaqua]].

** Even the quote for the CoolPlane page says, "If Kim Basinger was a plane, this is what she'd be." [[InvokedTrope Thanks, Tom Clancy!]]
* [[Manhwa/FlightHighschool Flight Highschool]] features a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin high school]] populated entirely by anthropomorphized military aircraft of various nations from the [[ColdWar Cold War]] to the modern day. Attributes of each character's appearance such as their hair style and height are references to the aircraft they represent.

* The {{Yonkoma}} ''P.S. Three-san'' (or ''P.S. Triple'' in the US) centers on the adventures of the titular protagonist, a moe anthropomorphism of the {{PlayStation3}}, as she tries to make her mark as a struggling idol singer against her rivals X-Locks (XBox 360) and Whee (Wii). Other consoles also make appearances as idol singers including Dee S(Nintendo DS), her bitter rival Pea (PSP) and Three-san's older sister Double (PlayStation 2) as well as the crazy producer Saygah (Sega).
* [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Roll]] in the [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Covenant Hunter Suit]] from ''VideoGame/MushroomKingdomFusion''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Moemon}}'', a notorious GameMod for ''{{Pokemon}} [=FireRed=] and [=LeafGreen=]'', converts the 'mons into {{Cute Monster Girl}}s, which only breaks down a little for Nidoran M. The mod also converts the Trainer to a {{Meido}}, and she flies instead of runs when she gets the Running Shoes.
** Male Pokemon do exist, and are very common, but the starters are usually female. There's a general 75%-25% ratio in the games, which has been [[GenderFlip flipped]] in the hack.

* For a brief while, there was a trend among the SamAndMax fandom of [[http://ginny-n.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2l6jco drawing the titular characters as humans.]] Although Sam typically looked ordinary, Max was usually drawn as an absolutely adorable little boy, despite [[FridgeLogic the two of them being the same age.]]
* TheMonsterGirlEncyclopedia uses this trope on many common monsters in {{RPG}}s.
* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'': To give Sasha a little more personality, we have [[http://enterpraiz.deviantart.com/art/Sasha-and-Sandvich-165751818 this]].
* Not even [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger Lavos]] can avoid this. Here's the [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/373595/brown_eyes-chicago-x-chrono_trigger-covering-gradi first form]] and the [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/359555/blush-chicago-x-chrono_trigger-covering-covering_b second form]].

* The VideoGame/{{Minecraft}} mod, [[http://forum.minecraftuser.jp/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=3691 Cute Mob Models]] gives this treatment to the mobs. {{Fanservice}} included.
* Various characters- specifically the bosses- found across AceCombat have proved to be a popular choice for this.
** AceCombat04 gives us [[http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a291/Cusashorn/81119.jpg Stonehenge]] and [[http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a291/Cusashorn/482632.jpg Megalith]]

* Someone has taken upon themselves to apply this to the VideoGame/AngryBirds, specifically turning them into {{Magical Girl}}s. Here they are (excluding original characters):

* {{Consolers}} is a WebComic representing various game companies this way.

[[folder:In Video Games]]
* There's an {{eroge}} called ''[=MonoGokoro MonoMusume=]'' that has moe-anthropomorphized objects as most of its principal cast. Objects turned into cute girls include a computer, a pillow, a HumongousMecha toy, a washing machine, and a pair of panties.
* A good portion of ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' characters feature this to some degree or another, with characters like Letty being the personification of Winter, Nitori, a Kappa, having the turtle shell and head plate of the actual mythological beast turning into a backpack and a cap, or Yamame, a giant spider monster, being a girl with no monstrous features except for design elements of the dress she wears.
** Some of the girls, like Medicine and Kogasa, are [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsukumogami tsukumogami]], which are basically personifications of inanimate objects, so they are kind of this in-universe as well as out.
* There's also the free-to-play MMO TPS ''[[http://www.cosmicbreak.com/home/ Cosmic]]''[[VideoGame/CosmicBreak Break]], where a part of robots are your usual mechs while others are mecha musume.
* The Triggerhearts from TriggerheartExelica are design to resemble mecha musume.
* All of the RealRobot series in SuperCosplayWarsUltra is done by a girl with only the ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]'' cosplay being the only exception.
* There are humanised versions of the romanceable birds in ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'', visible in a brief portrait when you first meet them. The game claims this is the work of the ICPSS system showing the "birdiest bird" as human, though it fails with Okosan. It's clear from the text that the characters are still birds, and the manga [[http://mangafox.me/manga/heartful_kareshi/c001/2.html even states]] that the human appearances are just there to help beginners feel the bird-moe, but this doesn't stop some fans.
* ''[[VideoGame/DonPachi Dododonpachi Saidai Oujou]]'': Ladies and gentlemen--[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gTqnQdmDJU&t=3m20s meet]] [[spoiler:[[FanNickname Lolibachi]]]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}'' is '''built''' around this concept. The four main characters are personifications of the seventh generation game consoles (the PS3, {{Xbox 360}}, and {{Wii}}, with the main being the hypothetical Sega Neptune), with their "little sisters" representing handhelds like the PSP and DS. The series also features anthropomorphized versions of companies like Gust and NipponIchi, and later games add in girls representing specific game franchises like ''VideoGame/PacMan'', ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'', and ''VideoGame/StreetFighter''.
** The AnimatedAdaptation adds in a CanonForeigner character, Setag, who's a Moe Anthropomorphized version of Microsoft founder Bill Gates.

* [[DanAndMabsFurryAdventures Mab]], queen of cute things, is a fan of the webcomic ''Webcomic/{{Jack|DavidHopkins}}''. Those familiar with both comics will know this could not possibly end well. Thus, we get [[http://www.pholph.com/strip.php?id=5&sid=1546 Mab's Chibi Hell]], which is, according to various sources, adorable, awesome, an offense against all that is good and right, or all of the above. Or, to quote the author:
-->"She has chibified the unchibifiable. Drip is undeserving of ever looking this innocent."
* ''LyricalNanoha'' FanWebComic ''[[http://www.entropymax.com/ Nanoha R'r]]'' took a stab at creating [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nanoha-nanorr-moe-rh-and-bardiche.jpg Moe versions of Raising Heart and Bardiche]], though the artist cheated a bit by [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nanoha-nanorr-bardiche-as-linith.jpg turning Bardiche into a loli version of]] [[CatGirl Linith]].
* One PvP arc features the lolbat (Franchise/{{Batman}} + FountainOfMemes) getting a new sidekick, [[http://www.pvponline.com/2010/03/01/urit/ ReTweet]], who is clearly based on {{Twitter}}.
* In addition to all of the examples in ''Touhou'' canon (see above), ''Webcomic/TouhouNekokayou'' adds OriginalCharacter [[MushroomMan Masha Kinoko]], a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amanita_muscaria fly agaric mushroom]] {{youkai}} and absolute {{moe}}blob.
** She even recieved the FanNickname Moeshroom.
* The ''Squiddles'' opening animation related to ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' shows some of them as anime girls.

* In ''TheSimpsons'' episode ''I'm Spelling as Fast as I Can'', Lisa Simpson dreams of the Seven Sisters colleges each personified by an attractive woman.

This is a rather popular concept, as seen in the following pictures: [[http://nux.deviantart.com/art/SpongeBob-SquarePants-17451045]] [[http://anigirl5.deviantart.com/art/Much-luv-to-Spongebob-91655442]] [[http://maryenta.deviantart.com/art/spongebob-139677766#comments]][[http://freakingarg.deviantart.com/art/Spongebob-Gang-Humanized-60173583]] [[http://demitasse-lover.deviantart.com/art/Hello-neighbor-68311763]] [[http://browse.deviantart.com/art/Spongebob-Shota-Style-42741203]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93lbXDsMr2k&feature=related I'll say]]
* There's a [[{{Transformers}} Decepticon]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0SOfOKxNU0 Version]] of the ''Manga/LuckyStar'' opening. They're the cutest evil robots ever.
** "Humanizing" Transformers is very common in fanart, with wildly varying levels of [[MoeMoe moe]]. [[TheStarscream Starscream]] tends to be a smarmy pretty-boy. Which...actually makes [[SmugSnake sen]][[EstrogenBrigadeBait se]].
*** [[http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&global=1&q=megatron+tan#/d126ng4 Here]] is Optimus Prime-Tan and Megatron-Tan...or maybe [[FanNickname "Optima Prima" and "Megatan"?]]
* As it is to be expected, [[http://derpibooru.org/tags/humanized it's also happening]] with characters from WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic (warning: some images may not be safe for work, though thankfully, most of those that aren't safe are blocked by a "QUESTIONABLE" warning)
** It's no longer just "happening". There are now '''''63,995''''' pieces in DeviantArt under [[http://browse.deviantart.com/?q=pony+human 'pony human']]
* Speaking of DeviantArt, there seems to be almost more Gijinka of the [[WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar Penguins of Madagascar]] than "normal" stuff...
* Here's the main cast of USAcres (plus SixthRanger [[KevinMeaney Aloysius Pig]]) [[http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/My_U.S._Acres_Moe_Anthromorphisims as human girls]].

[[folder:Web Original]]
* TheOtherWiki has Wikipe-tan (along with Commons-tan and Quote-tan). TV Tropes itself has JustForFun/TropeTan, while Encyclopedia Dramatica has AE-tan and Wiki/{{Uncyclopedia}} has Uncyclo-tan.
* ''OCReMix'' uses OCR-tan, with a new one for every forum version. The youngest, Ocr1-tan, is the first incarnation of the forum.
* Most of the boards of [[ImageBoards 4chan]] have a moe anthropomorph. For example, /a/ is a {{Meganekko}} [[UnsettlingGenderReveal under-age Trap]] with an {{Ahoge}}.
* The [=CWCki=] Wiki of ''{{Sonichu}}'' has [[http://www.cogsdev.org/cwcki/CWCki-tan CWCki-tan]], and the majority of that "art" will likely make you cry inside, especially the one for Valentine's Day.
* On the [[http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Final_Fantasy_Wiki Final Fantasy Wiki]], there's [[http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/User:Diablocon/FFWiki-tan FFWiki-tan]], a Viera librarian that takes care of the Chocobo in the Wiki's logo.
* Firefox-ko for Mozilla Firefox.
** There's also Opera-tan, for the Opera browser.
* [[http://i35.tinypic.com/2dujuhs.jpg Captcha-tan]]. The spambot that [[ImageBoards 4chan]] had to implement the captcha for (leading to Captcha-tan's creation) was also anthropomorphized as "Cornelia".
* Skewered in [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/anime-news-nina/2010-10-13 this]] ''AnimeNewsNina'' comic.
* Fantendo now has their own [[http://fantendo.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Sorastitch/Fan-tando Fan-Tan]].
* Starting with Episode 20 of Dave Madson's ''[[WebVideo/LooneyTunesIntroBloopers Looney Tunes Intro Bloopers]]'', the characters, whose voices are provided by Speakonia and to a lesser extent, Robo Soft, are giving rather cute human-like designs.
