Playing With / Lions and Tigers and Humans... Oh, My!

Basic Trope: Humans and Funny Animals or Kaiju coexisting, but no explanation is given.
  • Straight: Humans and anthro animals coexist with eachother.
  • Exaggerated: There's humans. And animals. And plants. And fungi. And the occasional supernatural or alien creature.
  • Downplayed: The Five Man Band is made up four humans, and drummer Tommy, an anthropomorphic cat, who happens to be the only anthropomorphic animal in the entire world, but nobody takes any notice.
  • Justified: The series is a What If? concerning evolution and survival of the fittest.
  • Inverted: The series (with an inversion of any kind, it's rarely a video game) takes place Exty Years Ago and humans are replaced with monkeys.
  • Subverted: The series is a Crisis Crossover with works that have worlds with just anthro dogs or cats.
  • Double Subverted: But the heroes are Original Generation.
  • Parodied: ???
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Only humans or only anthros appear.
  • Enforced: ???
  • Lampshaded: "I've heard that there are other universes where there are only humans or only animals."
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: "I've heard that there are other universes where animals act like humans."
  • Conversed: ???
  • Plotted A Good Waste: The author is an animal lover, and wanted to make a world where humans and animals are equals.
  • Deconstructed: When humans and other animals have equal intellects and are capable of manipulating tools, animals decide that humans are weaklings and decide to destroy them since they are, in many ways, tougher, faster, and stronger.
  • Reconstructed: The animals treat the humans as equals despite their differences.
  • Played For Drama: The animals of the world may be on the same level as the humans intellectually, they are still treated as second rate citizens due to their unusual behaviors and culture.
