Video Games
  • Gligar and Gliscor from Pokémon.
  • Metroids
  • Headcrabs from the Half-Life saga.
  • Brainsuckers from X-COM Apocalypse, which are used as ammunition by certain aliens in addition to appearing on their own. Replacing a person's brain is their entire purpose; They don't even have a digestive system.
  • The Protozoid Slimers from Duke Nukem 3D.

Webcomics
  • In Campus Safari, Chrome's miniwhip Aurla does a good impression of one. (Played for laughs)
  • Cross Time Cafe: Sam Starfall pulls one of these off in an early strip. Hortmage finds it irritating and, maybe, disgusting.
  • Edward's monster in Monster Pulse. It helps that it's actually his face.
