This trope has been re-defined. I don't know whether this example is valid for the new definition. It may need rewording to show how it fits the new definition. If it's valid, please restore it here and on the trope page.
- Loads and Loads of Races:
- Or rather, "Species" of Humanoid Alien Petting Zoo People, all descriptively named and given Intelligent Gerbil characterization, with the generic term for "sentient being" being Animal. Actual species within a race are treated as subraces, like Lions and Tigers both belonging to the Species Cat.
- As of "The Duelist and the Drifter" the inferred race count has exploded with the reveal of non-Animal sapients of all shapes and sizes. It's not just a World of Funny Animals anymore.
