And the last type, possibly the best known, are straight-up superheroes who just happen to be animals, often [[PettingZooPeople of the very anthropomorphic type]]. You can thank the ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' for this type being so ubiquitous. Compare with TeenageMutantSamuraiWombats, although Samurai Wombats aren't necessarily animals.

* A single panel in ''Comicbook/{{JSA}}'' #4 (1999), in which reality is being warped around the team by the fight between Comicbook/DoctorFate and Mordru, with the characters changing to match, has the Justice Critters, represented by a vulpine Comicbook/{{Starman}} (probably a VisualPun on ''VideoGame/{{Starfox}}'') and a lapine [[Comicbook/StargirlDCComics Star-Spangled Kid]] (the Star-Spangled Bunny?)

* ''ComicBook/DCOneMillion'' had Justice Legion Z (for Zoomorphs), which was descended from the Legion of Executive Familiars, which in turn was the even-futher-future counterpart to the Legion of Superpets. The JLZ membership included Proty One Million, a version of Comet the Super-Horse and Mastermind, presumably a heroic descendant of Mr Mind, the World's Wickedest Worm. The Executive Familiars were Krypto-9, Wormhole, [[OurDragonsAreDifferent the Sun Dragons]], and [[EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods Octo the Eight-Dimensional Cephalopod]].

* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia,'' animals can have [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividuals Quirks]] on rare occasions. The school's principal, Nezu, is one AmbiguousSpecies example, with SuperIntelligence that makes him a genius even by human standards.

* Mildly {{Deconstructed}} in ''Combook/{{PS238}}''--years ago they bio-engineered Argo the Wonder Dog for [[SupermanSubstitute Atlas]], but his SuperSenses combined with a dog's already sensitive hearing resulted in SensoryOverload, so he was sent to live in a special doghouse on the moon. [[SuperTeam The Earth Defense League]] has a base nearby, so presumably they help watch over him a bit.
