* ''VideoGame/WildArms1'' seemed to be going for this with its villains; you have a creepy [[OmnicidalManiac Omnicidal Maniac]], the [[EvilOverlord Evil Overlord,]] [[DarthVaderClone Darth Vader Clone]] who wants to [[TakeOverTheWorld take over the world]], a gleefully sadistic [[MadScientist Mad Scientist]], the [[HairTriggerTemper hot tempered]] [[TheBrute Brute]], the [[TragicMonster Tragic Monster]] with a history related to one of the main characters, a cool and collected [[BloodKnight Blood Knight]] with his [[BigBadassWolf Big Badass Wolf]] and the [[PluckyComicRelief comic relief villain]] to round them all out.

* Negi's class in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' is a walking case. It covers almost every imaginable female character trope appreciated in anime, and at least ''suggests'' most of the fetishes. If we extend that range beyond the class itself, we hit pretty much every conceivable form of romantic or sexual appeal at some point. As well dozens of iterations of RuleOfCool.

* The class in ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' is like [[Manga/MahouSenseiNegima Negi's]], but with severe personality disorders instead of fetishes ([[RuleThirtyFour well, they're probably]] ''[[RuleThirtyFour someone's]]'' [[RuleThirtyFour fetishes...]].)

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', there's a space marine faction for whatever particular flavour you like. The same is true of Imperial Guard, where every guard faction is an expy of a real-world military stereotype, complete with a faction who define themselves by surrendering.

* The list for Literature/TheDresdenFiles isn't quite as numerous as some of the other examples, but Harry has faced off against three highly varied species of vampires, with another species mentioned offhand (thankfully, [[Literature/{{Twilight}} none of them sparkle]]). There's also just about any variation of faerie you can imagine (along with more than a few you'd rather not.)
** Werewolves, too. Most of a chapter in the second book is devoted to explaining the differences between the various types.

* If elves are the best ''D&D'' example, [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] are certainly second. Chromatic (evil-aligned) and metallic (good-aligned) groups reside in the core books, along with not-quite-dragons like pseudodragons, drakes and fairy dragons, while later expansions introduce the various gem (psionic/neutral-aligned) varieties, shadow, fang, force, prismatic, sand, pyroclastic, stygian, and various oriental versions (once again, just to name a few.) Of course, dragons also seem to [[ShapeshiftingSquick breed with anything that moves]], meaning there are also countless "draconic" versions of other critters as well. There truly is a dragon for every season.
** That is, every season on every planet in the multiverse, not just 4.
* It was a joke for a while among the ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' developers that the only perversion that didn't exist in Creation was Pyrohomonecropedobestiality: "Having sex with a dead underaged animal of the same gender that's on fire."
** Much to the dismay of the ''[[OddJobGods god]]'' [[OddJobGods of having sex with a dead underaged animal of the same gender that's on fire]], who is the only god in Creation who has been out of work for his entire existence as a result. Creation kind of operates on a modified version of RuleThirtyFour: if it exists, there's a god for it. No exceptions.
** I'm sure that by now, some GM has included pyrohomonecropedobestiality in his campaign.
