Look closely at a female reptile, a female amphibian, a female bird, a female fish, a female insect, or most mammals that aren't human or primate. You'll doubtless notice the lack of a particular characteristic that is common to female humans. Most animals do not have human-like breasts at all, even if they fall into the category "mammal". Compare the bellies of a male and female dog, or even the chest of a female gorilla, and you won't find much difference unless she's recently given birth to a litter and is nursing young (that's about the only time she will ever have any vague semblance of what we call "breasts" on humans).
Regardless of this, artists tend to oversize the mammaries of characters that do have them, or put them in places where they don't belong. Due to the Buxom Beauty Standard, prominent breasts, or lack thereof, is one of the simplest visual cues for humanoids. Giving all female animals big boobs, or at least a body shape that mimics them, allows for distinction between the sexes without adding glaringly obvious costume tags, a wasp waist, or the more bizarre gender-specific characteristics in some other animals that the audience may very well be unable to recognize as sexual dimorphism. In such works, male animals are not necessarily given obvious pectorals. This can be said for most male cartoon characters, and not just male animals. If they want to be that egregious, they can make those non-mammal mammaries produce milk.
If the character is an alien or artificial life form, then it makes a little bit more sense. Aliens have Bizarre Alien Biology after all, and creators of synthoids and such would probably want their "children" to be anthropomorphic enough to fit in. Not to mention that it's easier to design a skin-tight rubber bodysuit with strange textures for use by human actors. Additionally, the adaptations needed for practical bipedalism would also result in this making a degree of sense for humanoids that evolved from mammals other than primates, such as Cat Folk, Wolf Men, or other mammalian Beast Men. However, it still tends to make a lot less sense when applied to avian and reptilian races of creatures or aliens. Breasts are for nursing young, and for an Avian with a nice hard beak (especially those with curved or hooked beaks), that would be incredibly painful. Reptiles often have sharp teeth and often strong jaws, too, same with some fish. Remember, breasts are primarily for nursing young — not just to look sexy.
This is extremely common in the Furry Fandom, though some furries prefer to just portray a reptile, avian, amphibian, or their mythical counterparts (Gryphons and Dragons) without them for anatomical purposes. Even when this trope is averted in canon, it seldom stops the Fan-Artists. There is also the school of thought of multiple breasts on aliens or furries, but that's a completely different subject altogether.
Just in case male non-mammals feel left out, note that external genitalia and nipples are also a "mammal thing", and their presence in male creatures from other taxonomic groups is a variant of this trope.
This Trope is sometimes found with Non-Mammalian Hair, hair being something else that only mammals have but is often added to non-mammalian females. Can go hand-in-hand with a Pregnant Reptile. Compare Lactating Male, Sexy Dimorphism, Organic Bra, Multiboobage, Secondary Sexual Characteristics, Tertiary Sexual Characteristics, and Feather Fingers. Contrast Animals Lack Attributes, when procreative parts that animals rightly should have are omitted.
- Technically every Digimon with breasts ever, but special mention goes to Arukenimon, a spider woman. They're not immediately noticeable, but they're there. Justified as it's based on a Youkai known as the Jyorogumo (prostitute spider), a spider demon that poses as a beautiful woman, often a hooker, to lure unwary men to its lair to be eaten and/or fed to its young. Presumably its "breasts" are something it evolved as a form of aggressive mimicry.
- Monster Musume: Spider People like Rachnera have boobs, though they may be a One-Gender Race, and have them to attract human males.
- The original origin story for Marvel's first Spider-Woman, Jessica Drew, was that she was a hyper-evolved spider who had been genetically engineered by the High Evolutionary to look completely human (some people, apparently including Stan Lee, felt that this was going too far even for comic book science), and a well-endowed human at that. This origin story was retconned away to be that she developed radiation sickness because her home was on top of a huge uranium deposit and an experimental spider-serum plus years hooked up to the High Evolutionary's machines saved her life. This was altered to being bitten by an irradiated spider in the TV series, and in the Spider-Woman's origins mini-series which was written much later.
- Hazbin Hotel's Angel Dust is a spider demon with what appears to be an impressive rack... and he's a guy. Justified in that it appears to actually be only chest fur, though he uses it as a Victoria's Secret Compartment sometimes.
- A spider who teaches Katy to knit in Katy Caterpillar has an impressive set of boobs.
- Blackarachnia in Beast Wars; necessary for her Black Widow/Femme Fatale motif.
- Spydra from Gadget Boy & Heather. However, she appears to just be a woman in a spider costume, and being an Expy of Dr. Claw from the original Inspector Gadget cartoon, very little is known about her true self.
- In Juuni Senshi Bakuretsu Eto Ranger, Tart the Chicken has a noticeable bust in her chicken form, and even more in her human form.
- Monster Musume: Papi has breasts, though they're rather small to keep her body light enough to fly.
- Some of the female ducks in Disney comics.
- Mocked by legendary Disney comic book artist Carl Barks himself. One humorous self-portrait◊ showed him making a sketch of a sexy, nude woman... using a rather annoyed-looking duck as a model.
- Don Rosa (and DuckTales animators) drew Glittering Goldie with this trope; her creator Carl Barks didn't. Make of that what you will.
- Don Rosa has also drawn Magica de Spell with them — or at least with cleavage.
- Daisy Duck herself has appeared on occasion in the old cartoons to have breasts in shorts like Mr. Duck Steps Out and Donald's Double Trouble. Obviously, this wasn't permanent, and except for a few instances like Quack Pack, she's been dodging the trope since then. She does, however, have a body shape that suggests womanly curves.
- Lyla Lay◊ in the modern version of the Paperinik/Duck Avenger (Donald as a superhero) comic as do most female duck characters. Although she's not an actual anthropomorphic duck, but a droid designed to look like one.
- The actress Paperilla Starry, a minor character, show to be very busty◊ in PKNA #15.
- In the Pi Kappa reboot series, this trope is more glaring, as seen with Vulnus Vendor's very buxom secretary or by Juniper Ducklair.
- Kay K◊, the cute spy from Double Duck storyline (Donald as superspy) that is set in the same universe of PK.
- In the first story-arc, when she's wearing a classy opera dress, even Daisy gets cleavage. However this is more a case of Depending on the Artist.
- In the Marvel Universe, the Shi'Ar are specifically stated to have evolved from birds (this is the reason why Deathbird, a Shi'Ar who is an apparent evolutionary throwback, has both wings and talons on her fingers). They also reproduce by laying eggs, which are incubated in a communal hatching chamber. Yet they are portrayed as humanoid in all other respects, including female Shi'Ar having breasts.
- The Italian comic Ava features this. To be clear the main characters are a humanoid duck and chicken, and both have not only huge breasts but also a slim waist and other stuff.
- As indicated in The Comics Curmudgeon's quote at the top of this page, the comic strip Shoe gives breasts to every single female in its all-avian cast.
Films — Animation
- In Happy Feet, the penguins are barely stylized at all, but the females have shading in their chest feathers to suggest a bosom. Truth is stranger than fiction; it turns out that Emperor Penguins do keep a milk-like substance stored in a gland by the esophagus, but it's actually the males that do this.
- Goldie, a pheasant, in Rock-A-Doodle.
- Atzi and Tetzin's Bird Warrior Forms in The Guardians of the Lost Code, they have breasts. but this is justified, since they are human girls fused with their Brijes and in their warrior forms they give them adult humanoid appearances.
- The Contessa, Hungarian hawk and Olympic fencer in Animalympics, has a shapely figure both above and below, accentuated by a dashing blouse and riding breeches. She also has eyeshadow and eyelashes for good measure. Other bird characters, like Babwa Warblers, are treated more naturally; Contessa happens to be the most humanoid.
- Stella the goose from Balto III: Wings of Change.
- The female birds in the Disney film Valiant have much more prominent chests than the male birds, particularly the main character's obligatory love interest, a small nursing dove. The females also have a small central indention and shading in the chest that would suggest cleavage.
- Surf's Up: Lani is a feminine, graceful Nice Girl who is a lifeguard and boasts a notably curvaceous figure, with Cody having an obvious crush on her. In contrast, the only other female character in the movie — Cody's mom — is significantly less anthropomorphic in design than Lani.
Films — Live-Action
- In Howard the Duck, the eponymous avian hero at one point ogles a "Playduck" centerfold, who has breasts (with nipples). And only a few minutes later, we see a female duck in the bath!
- ASAIR, one of the animations in Super Size Me suggested that McNuggets was made from old hen breast. And by breast, we do not mean the meat which is on the rib cage, but old-human-like breasts. It Makes Sense in Context. They were explaining how originally, McNuggets were made from chickens with larger than normal breasts. So to demonstrate, they drew a chicken with pendulous breasts so big that it had to walk with a cane.
- The Omwati of the Star Wars Expanded Universe are apparently bird descendants that look like humans with feathers. This includes breasts on the women. It was more justifiable in the Star Wars Legends depiction, as there they look basically like humans, except all have light blue skin (and were also meant to be a Human subspecies, though one wonders how the distinct looks evolved-possibly they were artificially developed).
- China Miéville's Bas-Lag books feature a lot of xenian characters, some of which fall under this trope. His garuda are a bird-like Winged Humanoid race, female members of which possess slight ornamental breasts useless for lactation.
- The album Atomic Roooster by Atomic Rooster features a flying bird with naked human breasts. In a transparent cube.
Religion and Mythology
- The simurgh, a giant bird from Iranian mythology, is said to nurse its young. Though to be fair, she's sometimes pictured as a Mix-and-Match Critter with a human/dog head and/or lion claws, in which case this makes a bit more sense. Some species of bird do nurse their young, but it works very differently from how us mammals do it.
- The fan-spoof Girls of Talislanta series erupted into controversy when the avian Aeriad were drawn with breasts. The controversy was eventually solved when the pose was changed so that the female Aeriad faced the other way.
- This is played with in Serious Sam 3 regarding the Scythian Witch-Harpy, which appear to be humanoid women with bird wings and feet. The creature's data file indicates that its breasts are actually non-functional, and are merely a false facade (a form of evolved predatory mimicry) used to attract primate prey for the harpy to kill and eat.
- Starbound has the Avian, a group of alien birds who resemble jays. The females are noticeably busty.
- The Legend of Zelda:
- Zelda II: The Adventure of Link: Fokkeru resemble giant eagles in everything except that they also have human breasts.
- When they first showed up in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, the Rito were basically just humans with beaks for noses and retractable wings, so an adult female Rito with breasts would not have been particularly surprising (had any adult Rito women actually showed up in the game). In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, however, the Rito are depicted as full-on anthropomorphic birds; anthropomorphic birds with noticeable busts, in the case of the women.
- The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess: The Oocca have plumage on their chests resembling Multiboobage.
- Turians in Mass Effect are based on birds of prey, and scrapped dialog in Mass Effect 2 does indicate that they think that human (or asari) breasts are an odd feature. However, when female turians are finally revealed in Mass Effect 3, they seem to have breasts. It's likely because of her cloak and hood giving off that appearance.
- Everyday Heroes features Dolly Bird, a human/bird hybrid with the Most Common Super Power. Her bio page mentions that she was created by the Somewhat-Below-Average Evolutionary.
- Suicide for Hire features birds with breasts. This can't be passed off as puffy chest feathers as some similar instances can, as Hunter Ravenwood once declares an avian ex-pornstar to possess "absolutely awesome areolas". The same comic also features reptiles with some fairly impressive hairstyles. Yikes.
- This more realistic take on the mythical sirens subverts this trope — what at first appears to be a pair of breasts on the large seabird is in fact a throat sac for amplifying sound, similar to the ones many real birds have.
- Female anthropomorphic animal characters in the Looney Tunes franchise:
- Nazi spy pigeon Hatta Mari in the Looney Tunes short "Plane Daffy". Also a red-headed duck who called herself 'The Body' that was strongly attracted to Daffy Duck in the cartoon "The Super Snooper".
- Daffy Duck's girlfriends over the years, such as Melissa Duck or Tina Russo, who are ducks with breasts.
- Mighty Ducks: The Animated Series has three prominent examples of this, with Mallory, Tanya, and Lucretia. All of them are female, anthropomorphic, alien ducks.
- In South Park's Thanksgiving Episode "Helen Keller! The Musical," the kids get a trained turkey named Alinicia for their school play, with a pronounced chest clearly meant to suggest breasts.
- Daisy Duck, of all characters, was given cleavage for the Quack Pack series. Her character was also completely redesigned into a sassy, female reporter-type as well.
- Regular Show has Margaret the robin. In her first appearance, she's showing sideboob, and in her second (which was part of a brief dream), she has on a Seashell Bra.
- Several original female duck characters on DuckTales. One of the stand-outs being Featherika Von Strangeduck in the episode "Hotel Strangeduck". Male ducks like Launchpad have their bills shaped like chins — and having arms and hands rather than wings, and speaking English, etc. — so breasts seem in line with these other adaptations. Darkwing Duck, being in the same continuity, also featured this; just look at Darkwing's Love Interest, Morgana MacCawber, who looks like a cross between the Bride of Frankenstein and Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
- This was kept about the same in the DuckTales reboot. Many adult female characters, most of whom are birds, do seem to have breasts (with some exceptions, like Quackfaster). Once again, Daisy does not avert the trope this time around, likely since she was planning to show off a fashion dress she made herself in her debut episode.
- The Penguins of Madagascar episode "Miss Understanding" has Skipper thinking he's a female due to a misreading of a DNA test result. During a few scenes showing how his new gender identity causes confusion during missions, the boys go for the chest bump after a successful completion, but Skipper and Rico are both uncomfortable with that due to Skipper's newfound (and nonexistent) female features. Notwithstanding that they're birds and don't have mammaries to begin with (or that Skipper really isn’t a female anyway).
- In the short "Little Quacker" of Tom and Jerry, when Tom runs a lawnmower over mother duck and tears her "dress", it's revealed that the bumps on her chest are actually breasts and she has a bra and bloomers underneath.
- Every adult female bird in Birdz, but Miss Finch ups the ante with Hartman Hips. And Morty is a rare example of "male non-mammal with nipples".
- Gorgeous Gal from the Woody Woodpecker cartoon "A Fine Feathered Frenzy". She was an overweight and elderly featherless woodpecker with large breasts. Although because she was overweight each breast was almost the size of the Woodpecker himself. Played as a double entendre when she appears on a large black and white TV screen from her chest up wearing a low cut evening gown. When she was right behind the Woodpecker Gorgeous Gal asked him with her sexy voice, "How 'bout a twosome hon?"
- The other prominent female character in Beast Wars, Airrazor, while not as obvious as Blackarachnia, still had a rather conspicuous chestplate. The Transmetal version of her that never made it into the cartoon plays it straight.
- The pigeon, the rooster, and Duck from Almost Naked Animals have nipples. Also, the female ducks in the episode "Duckling Duck" have boobs.
- The Cuban animated short La Pavita Pechugona features a female turkey with an over-sized bust.
- The Silly Symphonies short, "Who Killed Cock Robin", features a female wren named Jenny Wren who is a clear Captain Ersatz of Mae West. Her chest is very puffed out and even forms cleavage when she inhales.
- Lady Bade-Baden in The Raccoons is a bird and has a huge buxom.
- The 1993 Biker Mice from Mars episode "Unforgiven Cheese" featured a bird-woman bounty hunter with prominent breasts named Billie Monnie.
- The titular Goose Lady from Tales from the Goose Lady has a pair of small breasts.
- Bella from Avenger Penguins is a female penguin with breasts.
- Harvey Beaks: Harvey's mother Miriam has breasts.
- Teacher's Pet: The Valentine's Day Episode "Taint Valentine's Day" has Pretty Boy fall for a female bird with breasts.
- In Tuca & Bertie, most of the characters (including the title characters) are Bird People with humanoid breasts. There are even multiple topless shots that show them to have nipples. "Plumage" shows this to also be true of Speckle, the show's primary male bird character.
- Count Duckula: The Duckula setting is shown to be inhabited entirely by anthropomorphic birds and some of the females are seen having breasts. One specific example was the start of the episode "Mystery Cruise" where a game show's Lovely Assistant is wearing a low-cut dress showing plenty of cleavage.
- The Jungle Show: The chickens Lil and Lily are depicted with breasts in "Killer Heart" in spite of usually being depicted as flat-chested.
- The Mantis-like Thraxan race in Invincible, where the women look mostly like hot big-breasted blue women until one sees the mantis-like heads... which also come with big, plump, feminine, human-like lips.
- The Forager in Countdown to Final Crisis. In fact, several panels are devoted to showing how much she has breasts, after taking a shower at Jimmy Olsen's place.
- The collector's club comics-exclusive Beast Wars character Antagony is a black, female version of Inferno (who technically ought to be female anyway, considering he turns into a soldier ant, but that's neither here nor there). The compound eyes on her chest, made from the head of her ant mode, are usually drawn as boobs.
- Green Lantern Honor Guard member K'ryssma is an exceedingly humanoid Insectoid Alien with large breasts above the segmented carapace on her abdomen.
- The Mantis-headed X-Men character only known as "Offset", a member of the Shi'ar military unit known as the Death Commandos, is a four-armed alien commando that, well, as the trope says, has a pair of very prominent mammaries; very, very prominent. She gets a pass by having them practically uncovered with her Stripperiffic outfit. Also, she (and the artists) seems to like throwing them in everyone's faces at every possible moment, almost as if to tempt you to be attracted to the mantis alien, and as we all know, that's just asking for trouble◊ (knowing what happens to male the mantis after mating). But with that body and a pair◊ like that, it might just be worth the risk. But then comes to mind that she also has a paralyzing poison, super strength, and has tried to eat human characters in the past. Proceed at your own risk.
Films — Live-Action
- The titular female monster of The Wasp Woman only grew a wasp's head and kept her human body, it gets even weirder in the 1995 remake where the monster is a large multi-legged wasp centaur type creature that◊ with a rather huge pair of breasts. It's somewhat justified since it is a human female turning into a wasp monster.
- The Khepri of Perdido Street Station. Though they are more along the lines of women with scarabs for heads, infant khepri probably wouldn't be able to nurse with insectile mouthparts, so their humanoid bodies' breasts have no purpose.
- The Lalithas from The Lovers are a justified example, as they have the form of gorgeous human women, as they need humans for reproduction.
- Doctor Who: Chantho, the blue humanoid grasshopper girl in "Utopia". She can feed off her own milk with some sort of internal feeding system, too.
- Played with in an episode of How I Met Your Mother: Marshall is trying to prolong a "pause" in an argument with Lily, so while they are going at it, he doesn't want to "finish" too soon. He starts thinking about things that will keep him from getting there too soon, one of the things being "bugs." Problem is that it works too well, so he tries to picture "Bugs, with boobs."
- Honey B. from Banjo-Kazooie sports a pretty impressive pair, and a distinctly waspish waist. In fact, this applies any time a bee- or wasp-like character in a funny animals situation isn't a gigantic engine of stinging death instead.
- In both Bug! and Bug Too, there are examples. In the first title, there's Bug's girlfriend, while the sequel sports some multiarmed amazons with large breasts in some levels.
- Q-Bee of Darkstalkers fame similarly has a female body with... generous proportions. But it's revealed that this is all a ploy to capture unsuspecting men for her and her hive to mate with and eat (in her victory poses, she even pulls out a knife and fork). This is most evident by the fact that, in her battle stances, she is posed with the buglike eyes on top of her head leading the body, since the ones on her face are entirely decorative (and form part of her mouth).
- Princess What's-Her-Name from Earthworm Jim has the total package: boobs, really Impossible Hourglass Figure, and Hartman Hips. However, it's hilariously subverted in that by her own species' standards, she's considered a hideous mutant, while her sister, Evil Queen Pulsating, Bloated, Festering, Sweaty, Pus-Filled, Malformed Slug-For-A-Butt (which describes her looks pretty well), is viewed by her subjects as the World's Most Beautiful Woman.
- Dreamwalk Journal and its sequels are all about a world of nude anthropomorphic insects and arachnids with exaggerated sexual characteristics, including huge boobs on all the females (they apparently use breasts for storing honey or whatever rather than actually nursing). That's all you need to know about it.
- Though the trolls from Homestuck are vaguely insectoid humanoids with a very bug-like reproductive cycle, grown female trolls have been shown to have "rumble spheres". Andrew Hussie says that it's just so that readers find them easier to identify with. He also joked about the trope on his Formspring.
- In The Inexplicable Adventures of Bob!, Princess Voluptua's butterfly form does have a bosom. Apparently, they're ovipositors.
- Tammy the moth, from Kevin & Kell, sports a pretty impressive set.
- In response to some fan criticism, Sequential Art creator Phillip Jackson drew something creative...
- The female insects in Blade Under Mask have them.
- Rotarr, an anthropomorphic housefly character created by Lisa Heschl, is specifically stated to have a "Breast-like Chest but no Mamilla" (i.e. no nipples).
- The Queen of the bee-like aliens in He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (1983).
- Atta and Gypsy Moth from A Bug's Life.
- The bee in Verwitterte Melodie has visible cleavage in a couple of shots.
- The Cockroach Queen from the Pinky and the Brain episode "Brain of the Future" has visible breasts.
- Toxic Crusaders, an animated series loosely based on Troma's Toxic Avenger film series, featured a race of bug-like aliens called Smogulans, who were polluting Earth to make the planet easier for them to inhabit. It is shown in the episode "Toxie ties the Knot" that female Smogulans have breasts.
- This is common in One Piece, in which zoans (people who can turn into animals) usually retain several human features in their half animal form, including hair and, in females, breasts. Even in the case of two female characters who can turn into snakes. At least they didn't have nipples.
- In My Hero Academia, Mineta briefly wonders why Tsuyu, the resident Frog Girl, has breasts. This is more Conversational Troping than a direct example, though, since Tsuyu isn't technically a humanoid frog or cross-species hybrid; she's a human with animal-derived superpowers, similar to Spider-Man.
- In Monster Musume, all lamia have breasts, despite their questionable status as mammals (they are explicitly cold-blooded). It could be hand-waved by the fact that they are a One-Gender Race and biologically require human men to reproduce with, so they could have co-evolved breasts both to attract said men and feed their children.
- That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime only has a few female lizardmen (lizardwomen?), but the chieftain's daughter appears to have breasts. She also looks somewhat more smooth and humanoid even compared to her brother, who has a name, which in this universe should mean he's closer to being human than his comrades.
- The Skrulls of the Marvel Universe are usually referred to as reptiles; they're green, anyway. Would be justified, as they are shapeshifters, if the few female skrulls shown in their "natural" form weren't as vulnerable to the Most Common Superpower as everyone else in MU. They have hair, so maybe they're egg-laying mammals, not reptiles; apparently they lay eggs and then nurse their young after they hatch.
- Nessie from Richard C. Moore's Boneyard, despite being a female version of Gillman from the Creature of the Black Lagoon, outsizes all the other girls by several cupsizes. This was lampshaded in an issue that took place at the beach when one of the characters asks "Why does a lizard have such huge tits anyway?"
- Tricerachops of Super Dinosaur is a half-dinosaur, half-human mutant who evidently has mammaries.
- In the Sigil series from CrossGen, female saurians have pronounced busts.
- In the German Club Nintendo comic, one storyline has an apparently older Wendy O. Koopa drawn with hair and breasts.
- "Snake Tales" by Sols (Allan Salisbury). His snakettes do not only have impressive boobies, but also secondary (long eyelashes) and tertiary (bows) characteristics. Just to be safe.
- In the Shadowchasers Series, the ophidia are a race of Snake People where this is common for females, and Non-Mammalian Hair is occasionally found on both genders. This is actually brought up in one chapter of the second fic, where it states a female ophidia's mammaries are non-functional, and if they ever nursed their young, it was millennia ago.
- The Jackie Chan Adventures fanfic Jade Dragon hilariously subverts this. At first, it appears that Fei Cui Huo — Jade's Alternate Universe demon counterpart — is heavily endowed, despite being a dragon. Then she reveals that it's padding, since as a reptile, she lays eggs and therefore doesn't need mammaries.

- The dinosaur-descended humanoids of the Super Mario Bros. (1993) movie.
- The Falleen from Star Wars, although, technically, they're reptomammals. Granted, there were indeed mammal-like reptiles in prehistoric times. But designating the Falleen as such was probably an attempt to justify this trope. And anyway, if they fed their young on milk, it's very likely real synapsids did it like modern monotremes, who secrete milk from a diffuse region of skin and thus don't have... "large tracts of land". The real reason is because Falleen are supposed to be appealing to a wide variety of species, and being human-created, this means breasts must be on the females.
- In Larklight, a reptile girl (who is presumably the equivalent of a teenager) is remarked upon as not having these — specifically in the context of how ridiculous it makes her look when she wears a dress not specifically tailored for her. The tail doesn't help matters there.
- Jack Chalker's Well World series included a naga-like species with six arms and six breasts, though these were later retconned into glands for storing water.
- Averted in Psychoshop (a collaboration between Roger Zelazny's and Alfred Bester). When the narrator makes love to his uplifted snake Love Interest, it is noted she has neither breasts nor a navel, although the parts necessary for lovemaking cause no compatibility problems.
- The Abbai in Babylon 5 are clearly amphibians, but still have breasts. The official tie-in guide explains it away as a structure of coiled tendrils that have a similar purpose but are not actually breasts. It's all a coincidence, apparently...
- Averted with the Narn, who are also (technically) reptilian. The show cast actresses with the least prominent chests they could find, and disguised what was there with bindings and loose clothes. The illusion isn't perfect, but close.
- Doctor Who has female Silurians with breasts, for some reason. Averted by the Silurians in the Classic series, who were much more androgynous to human eyes.
- Venus, the female turtle added to the Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation series, had nipple-less shell breasts in her plastron.
- Gertie Gator from The Noddy Shop has huge breasts.
- Dungeons & Dragons:
- The Yuan-Ti in 3.5e are snake people. It may have something to do with being able to inter-breed with humans (indeed, some supplements explain that "the yuan-ti are descended from evil human cultists who mixed their bloodlines with those of serpents", which is itself impossible); but it was probably due to... "artistic license". In some editions, this is explicitly the result of magical assistance from a demon lord worshiped by the cultists, making it a case of A God Did It.
- 4E has this with the Drakkoths, which are an unusual mixture of crested lizard upper torso and the body of some sort of spiny-tailed drake in the style of a centaur. The females, despite the obvious reptilian nature of these creatures, have breasts.
- Many fans of the game that followed the online discussions around the time of the release of the 4th Edition might remember the controversy concerning the new Dragonborn race that was Dragonboobs!!! In 3.5, they had an excuse: Dragonborn were created by magical religious ritual from humanoid volunteers, who kept attributes from what they used to be after being transformed (so a dwarf would become a short and stocky Dragonborn, and a female would usually have two visible bumps on the upper part of the torso). This was changed to Dragonborn being a proper race of their own in 4E, but they still kept the 'humanoids modified to look draconic' appearance, including the mammary-endowed females.
- Medusas are likewise endowed, but depending on which edition's artwork you go by, this is either perfectly logical (only snaky hair) or slightly squicky (scaly and monstrous all over). In either case, the in-universe reason has nothing to do with feeding offspring, instead using the resultant feminine silhouette to lure human men as mates, prey, or artwork.
- The artwork accompanying one of the Voyages of the Princess Ark CD&D articles in Dragon included a female lizardfolk shaman with substantial breasts.
- The (presumably male) artists of the German Fantasy tabletop roleplaying game Arcane Codex like to put breasts on everything. Even on the females of reptile people. Considering that Arcane Codex has at least a dozen playable races and more classes to choose from, with full-color artwork in scantily-clad detail, that's quite a lot of breasts. They'd probably put breasts on seahorses, if they could get away with it.
- In Exalted, the signature Casteless Lunar NPC, Madame Vert, is seen most frequently in her hybrid beast(wo)man form, a humanoid Claw Strider with the proportions of a swimsuit model, such as here; WARNING: nipple outline may make this NSFW. While there's some sense there — her most natural shape being a human woman — it's still breasts on a scantily-clad lizard-woman.
- Magic: The Gathering:
- The orochi (snake people) in "Kamigawa" block.
- Averted with two of the female Elder Dragons of Tarkir, Dromoka and Atarka, who have men's chests (their female fellow Kolaghan doesn't have a human chest).
- Neverwinter Nights 2: Kobolds (male and female) have nipples and navels. Lizardfolk also have nipples, but no navel.
- Everquest II makes Iksar females significantly slimmer than males and gives them breasts, albeit breasts that can only be described as "minimalist" by MMORPG standards.
- Donkey Kong Country: Several Kremlings (particularly Klump and K. Rool) have nipples. Klump◊ also provides an example of non-mammalian manboobs. Kalypso is a straight female example.
- The Elder Scrolls: The female Lizard Folk Argonians have them in every game except for Morrowind. (Where other characteristics were used to differentiate Argonian sexes, including differences in head and body shape as well as different colorations and types of Alien Hair.) Even in Morrowind, gendered armor types on female Argonians would still include feminine-shaped chest armor. Of course, there are mods available for most of the games that give Argonians a more reptillian anatomy.
- Jitsu Squad have a snake-woman boss, Viper, who somehow have visible breasts in both her forms. In her first form she even inflates her boobs before performing a Breath Attack!
- Sword of the Stars: The Tarka appear to be reptilian. Their females lay eggs but have clearly-defined breasts. However, the manual states that their internal structure is much more similar to primates than reptiles.
- Pardus: The Keldon species has breasts. Why? As the original maker of the images said, "Keldon women do have boobs. Reason: because I like them and I did the original race design, and Baldur [Game Developer] has agreed upon it."
- Drakensang: The Final Boss goes One-Winged Angel and turns into a giant, three-headed serpent. However, she still retains her nipless breasts at the base of her central head.
- Skylanders: As part of her redesign, the plates on Cynder's underside were modified so that her upper chest has two plates side by side and are noticeably round, while the rest of the plates are flat. Her design got tweaked a bit for Skylanders: Giants, and her new toy is completely flat.
- Star Trek Online: Why do the female Saurians have breasts? It's not even as if, being a Federation race, you can put them in an armoured corset and have them show off the goods.
- Guild Wars 2 has the Krait, whose females have mammaries just like a mammal would; how functional said mammaries are is up for debate. But given that the Krait appear to work in groups and communities, it is possible that they do breastfeed their young.
- Mortal Kombat has a race called the Saurians (also known as Zaterrans, after their adopted homeworld), of which the most prominent female member, Khameleon, sports a pair of breasts.
- XCOM 2 features the true form of the Thin Men from the previous game — and the female Vipers sport breasts. Given that the game is set in an Alternate Timeline where X-Com lost the fight, this led the Internet to make the obvious guess on why Earth decided to surrender. In-game, the autopsy for Vipers explains that they're basically specialized venom glands; the ability to use pectoral muscles to contract the oversized glands is what lets Vipers spit poison so far and in such quantities. The male Viper King from the Alien Hunters expansion also has those glands.
- Chrono Trigger: Among the enemies in the prehistoric era, you will find obese terrasaurs who sport protruding belly-buttons with breasts above them.
- Divinity: Original Sin II has a rather strange situation with the Lizards. Females have a more busty chest than males, but they don't look like they have actual breasts - that being said, if you play as the Red Prince, in the scene where he has sex with Sadha, the narration explicitly mentions that Sadha has breasts.
- Could Be Worse: Subverted in this strip when a human catcalls a Lizard Folk woman by complimenting her breasts. She tells him that she doesn’t actually have mammaries, and opens her shirt to show him the snacks she has strapped to her torso. This happens again in another strip, except instead of snacks, the Lizard Folk woman was keeping her eggs under her clothes. The guy gets beaten up for his perversity. Played straight in a third comic strip, however it’s to pull a To Serve Man-style Honey Trap.
- In reference to the D&D Flame War listed above, the gang at Full Frontal Nerdity get stuck pondering whether or not female Dragonborn would have breasts.
- Veled of Last Res0rt has possibly the largest rack of the cast. Hers are at least justified by the fact she's not all reptile.
- Wereworld is set on a planet where "Lycanthropes" can shift between animal, human, and hybrid form. All female Lycanthropes have breasts. There are also dragons (who are not Lycanthropes) and the females of the species have no breasts, no hair, no nipples, nor anything that would indicate their gender to a human when compared to the males of the species (they have mohawk-like ridges and horns that look like hair, but no actual hair). This is spotlighted when Blaze, a female dragon, is chosen to make contact with the main character as a messenger of the dragon council. It is quite a humorous scene when Aris, another female dragon, tries to explain to Blaze that she looks like a male to other species, regardless of how sexy she looks to dragon males. This is fixed with the dragon unique ability to shapeshift, which she uses to assume a more human form. However, Blaze misunderstands Aris's explanation of "the importance of having breasts among the other races", and gives herself far too large breasts. This led to Blaze's humorous line "If you're gonna do something, do it grand". So far, no other non-mammal lycanthropes have shown up to compare the dragons to.
- The female Nagasta (sort of merfolky-lizardy people) in Dominic Deegan have prominent breasts. When one reader asked Mookie why, his answer was "I like boobs."
- Played with in The Order of the Stick, strip #676, where only one of the two reptilian hookers has breasts — they're implants, which her co-workers find ridiculous. (Given the accompanying dialogue, this is likely a reference to the dragonborn, as mentioned above.) Lampshaded in the prequel book Start of Darkness:
Oracle: Now get out, I have a hot date with this kobold chick, and my oracular powers tell me I'm getting to second base tonight.
Eugene: Wait, if she's a reptile, how do you get to second base?
- Harkovast, a fantasy webcomic featuring various animal races, features a reptilian race called "Tsung Dao" whose females fit in this trope. However, it is explained that in this magical setting, all races can cross-breed, making the need for mammary glands a somewhat universal adaption.
- All of the female dragons from Draconia Chronicles seem to fit this trope. Canonically, they're the wing muscles, but they look and act exactly like breasts in all other respects except producing baby formula.
- In this panel from Concession, Angie feels she's justified in not wearing anything above the waist because of her reptilian biology.
"What's there to reveal? I don't have breasts! I don't even have nipples!"
- The frog creature from Ow, my sanity.
- Aylee the alien from Sluggy Freelance has booby-looking things sometimes. "Bring back phase two!"
- Broken Plot Device has both Lizardbeth and Inix, the former an Iguana, the latter a Dragon. Not particularly busty compared to the mammalian cast, however.
- A NSFW Oglaf strip lampshades this — the unnamed man is too busy looking at a Medusa's bare breasts to look at her face and be petrified. "Heh, snake tits."
- The Stormrunners features Ssuara, a soldier of a Martian race 3.5 billion years in our past. Although basically reptilian, she has large and very human-looking breasts (and incidentally, she's always naked). It seems this is a deliberate piece of cosmetic genetic modification — the Martians had time viewers which they used to view 21st century human culture and presumably pornography.
- Nip and Tuck both averts and heavily discusses this with Hortense, who becomes a surprisingly sympathetic character when she explains that she is physically incapable of meeting the expectations of femininity created by a mammalian-heavy culture.
- Played for Laughs in Ennui GO!, where an otherwise ordinary frog grows breasts (and eyelashes) due to the lake it lives in being tainted with a bust-enhancing cream. It's also used as a Shout-Out to Alex Jones' infamous "Gay Frogs" rant.
- Exaggerated in Scalie Schoolie, which takes place in a high school filled with lizard girls, most of whom sport impressive busts.
- Specifically averted in El Goonish Shive when Nanase turns into a gecko. This is significant in that she loses her quite noticeable bosom, as well as the fact that Dan usually includes them in his morphs, mainly because Tedd is the one designing the TF Gun forms.
- Justified in Afterwar where about a third of the lizardfolk race get breast implants in an attempt to blend in with the dominant mammalian races.
- Uncomfortably applied to the southern belle alligators in Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation. One of them even sends Buster straight to Marshmallow Hell.
- In the U.S. Acres segment of Garfield and Friends, the episode "Scrambled Eggs" had Sheldon the unhatched chick mistaken for a turtle egg by a mother turtle with rather noticeable cleavage. On her shell! How are those supposed to work? (Insert your own "breast plate" joke here.)
- Beans, the main female character in Rango, has obvious breasts. There's also a background frog character who has them.
- Robot Chicken: In a sketch featuring Medusa, she's a snake person with large breasts. She talks about them while trying to make Perseus look at her.
- Mrs. Toad in Thumbelina. She was an Ink-Suit Actor version of Charo.
- The Gungan, Rhodian, and Mon Cala (they might look like fish, but they're in fact Amphibians) females from Star Wars: The Clone Wars are depicted with breasts.
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987) had Mona Lisa, a mix-and-match reptile/amphibian girl. Justified in that she was a mutated human.
- Vipra from BraveStarr. (Although she is rather flattish... at least for Evil Is Sexy standards.)
- Apatty Saurus from Dinosaucers.
- King Koopa's mother in an episode of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!.
- Bev Bighead from Rocko's Modern Life, who is a toad. Also, in the episode "Leap Frogs," Mrs. Bighead turns on a nature documentary about the mating habits of cane toads. The female toad on the TV has breasts, with nipples and everything.
- In the Spider-Man: The Animated Series episode "The Lizard King", it is revealed that some chemicals discarded by Curtis Connors caused some lizards in the sewers to mutate into reptilian humanoids. The sole female mutant lizard was named Gila and had breasts.
- Downplayed in My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Female dragons such as Ember and Smolder have slight but noticeable thickness in their upper chests.
- Squid Girl: Ika Musume is supposed to be a squid, yet she at least seems from this side of the dress to have the chest — and general appearance, tentacles notwithstanding — of a female human in her early teens. She's also an invertebrate, as stated on the DVD cover, but you'd think from looking at her that she has an internal skeleton, so...
- The Merrow of the Lorwyn setting of Magic: The Gathering, where the males and females would be indistinguishable if not for the breasts.
- The Atlanteans in Invincible.
- Orca from Batman comics is a very large anthropomorphic whale◊ with an even larger pair of mammaries. Although this is probably justified because she is still part-human.
- In addition to the Falleen, tons of non-mammalian humanoid species in Star Wars fall under this trope, including Quarren◊, which is all kinds of wrong.
- The fish in Radiohead's "Paranoid Android" video. Strangely enough, that's the only humanoid feature that fish has, and isn't even noticeable at first...
- The merfolk of Barracora, who are an unconventional combination of bipedal humanoids and scaleless fish.
- The Legend of Zelda:
- Female Zoras are generally depicted with mammaries. It's hard to miss in Ruto's official artwork◊.
- In The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, both male and female Zoras are identical and flat-chested. The deceased Zora queen, on the other hand....
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild continues with the tradition of flat chests for male Zoras. Female Zoras do have breasts, but they are small to the point where you'd have to be looking at them closely to notice. The Zora princess, Mipha, also falls under the same boat. The only difference between male and female Zoras are in skin color, where males are green, blue, or black while females are magenta. However, the Zora prince, Sidon, is magenta colored.
- The Naiads from God of War. Poseidon apparently gussied his daughters up, presumably to make Spartans want to make out with them.
- In Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth, Hydra, giant queen of the fish-like Deep Ones, is depicted with breasts. It is known that Deep Ones can interbreed with humans, and therefore must presumably share some genetic material, and it's worth noting that the usual reason of making the female creature more attractive/feminine definitely doesn't apply here — imagine the Stone Age fat goddess idols, and add a few extra pairs of breasts, scales, and sharp, fishy teeth.
- Splatoon: Female Inklings and Octolings have breasts, with the latter on average seeming to have more pronounced ones than their Inkling counterparts. Downplayed in that the Inklings are somewhat childlike in their appearance, and generally favour loose-fitting unisex clothing that doesn't draw attention to their figures.
- Nami in League of Legends is a member of the Marai, a mer-humanoid race. She not only has breasts, her coat of scales opens above her waist, Navel-Deep Neckline style, to show them off better. This was eventually justified by explaining that her people are the result of humans interbreeding with nature spirits centuries ago, creating several families of humans with animal characteristics.
- Slithice, the Naga Siren of Dota 2, has breast-like protrusions on her chest. Interestingly enough, she's also completely topless (unless certain cosmetic items are equipped), making it clear that she has no nipples.
- In a Springhole article about mermaids, it's explained why this wouldn't necessarily make sense from an evolutionary standpoint. If the mermaids in question don’t nurse their young, they won’t need breasts to make milk. And humans don’t make a good stable food source for ocean creatures, so mermaids would be unlikely to need faux boobs to tempt sailors.
- Parodied by the Mermaids in Tales of MU. They have breasts but are ignorant of lactation. Instead, they are used to get free beer and lure sailors to their doom.
- On Captain N: The Game Master, in the episode "I Wish I Was A Wombatman", there was a short well-endowed blonde-haired pink octopus who wore a pink dress. She fell in love with Simon Belmont at first sight, even though he wasn't interested. The cartoon ended with her chasing him so she could make love to her 'dream boat', all while leaning forward and exposing the top of her ample cleavage.
- Short-lived series Fish Police features anthropomorphic fish. Didn't help that one of the main characters was a blatant pandering to dads who might be watching. This also applied to the comic that the show was loosely based on.
- Female Decapodians from Futurama are humanoid shellfish. As Decapodians die immediately after mating, leaving their fertilized eggs behind in the sea, females of their race would never get the chance to use breasts as Nature (as opposed to Fanservice) intended. According to Word of God, their "breasts" are actually egg sacs. Still, the ones with the biggest are considered the most desirable. Then again, bigger egg sacs likely means more eggs.
- In SpongeBob SquarePants:
- Some female fish wear bras.
- A non-mammary example: Patrick has a noticeable navel. Navels only exist in placental mammals; they are scars left behind by umbilical cords, so only animals whose gestation requires placenta have them.
- Lil Cuyler from Squidbillies.
- The original 1993 Biker Mice from Mars and its contested 2006 Sequel Series both featured a race of fish aliens called the Plutarkians. Female Plutarkians were shown to have breasts, most notably main antagonist Lawrence Limburger's sister Latoyah, one-shot villain Romana Parmesana, and the unnamed female member of the Plutarkian Council.
- In The Little Mermaid, the musical number "Under the Sea" features a singing black fish that looks like a diva in an evening gown, complete with non-mammal mammaries. However, all other oceanic creatures in the film are male or non-anthropomorphic, so the background character is really the only instance in the film.
- A bad case of research failure resulting in unintentional squick is the advert for Nestlé Cereal Bars on UK TV, using an animated character called "Uter the Cow". Uter spoke with an Arnold Schwarzenegger-style voice, and had some sort of gun-like contraption, attached to his(?) udder-area by means of a long tube, out of which he expelled what was presumably meant to be milk.
Anime and Manga
- The Minks of One Piece are an entire race of anthropomorphic animals. Naturally, the females have this quality, regardless of what type of animal they are.
- Notably averted in Delicious in Dungeon; when Izutsumi, a cat-human chimera, takes her clothes off, she’s revealed to be completely flat-chested. Tertiary Sexual Characteristics are averted in general; she’s implied to have about the same sexual characteristics that real cats do, like a tiny set of nipple bumps buried beneath her fur.
- The cast on Blacksad are drawn with humanoid facial features despite being Anthropormorphic animals particularly the female cast, so they were bound to be given the human shaped mammaries to go alongside their humanoid muzzle.
- Omaha the Cat Dancer has the titular character and the rest of the female cast depicted with very humanoid shapely figures alongside mammaries that look like they came out of a Playboy magazine.
- Most of the female cast of Sonic the Hedgehog (Archie Comics), especially when artists like Steven Butler drew them, Sally Acorn and Bunnie Rabbot where the prime models for his particular style of drawing. It didn’t sit well with some fans though, whom criticized as them not looking anything like a sonic character's body shape (dubbed the Mobian form due to it being the species name); eventually it led to a Broken Base depending on the artist brought in to draw the issue of the month; but all of them had in common in giving some form of mammaries to the female cast even if just a little.
- Lanolin and to a degree Whisper, both fit this on the IDW comics especially when drawn by the former's owner, Adam "ADB" Bryce Thomas.
- Averted in the Triptych Continuum. As per Real Life equine biology, ponies don't grow visible mammaries unless pregnant or nursing. This tends to result in embarrassment and disgust when they encounter other races (such as minotaurs or centaurs) whose females do grow permanent breasts.
Films — Animation
- Many of the female mice in the An American Tail series have them.
- This trope was reversed (and maybe even broken) in Barnyard and its spinoff series Back at the Barnyard, wherein most of the bovines have udders. Even the male ones.
- Space Jam features Lola Bunny, an anthropomorphic bunny woman with breasts.
- Played with in the Discworld novel Feet of Clay, where with Cheery noting about how hard it is to be openly female and a dwarf, Angua (a werewolf) muses internally that at least she doesn't feel like she should be wearing three bras sometimes.
- In one of the Myth Adventures novels, a woman is attempting to use an illusion to look like a werewolf despite never having seen one. Later on, when she meets one, the female werewolf laughs over the obvious mistake she made: "And you only had two breasts."
- Somewhat related: the Redwall series has a unique problem. Most of the characters are mammals, but there are no non-anthropomorphic mammals (besides the horse in the original novel, and it's been more or less retconned out at this point). Yet they are always eating cheese. It was eventually explained that the milk is "Greensap milk", produced from "roots and tubers". Mm, tastes like Deus Ex Machina. But at least it avoids the potentially embarrassing problems of locating the real stuff... In one episode of the Nelvana cartoon, Matthias suffers an instance of Marshmallow Hell at the paws of Constance Badger. (Constance is the only character to have noticeable cleavage.)
- Weird example: In the nature Mockumentary book The Snouters: Form and Life of the Rhinogrades, one species of this fictious mammal taxon always sports prominent breasts resembling those of humans... even in males. Justified, at least in theory, because the species in question lives symbiotically with another, and trades milk for this other species' assistance in finding food. (Doesn't explain why the breasts look so much like a snippet of Playboy got photoshopped onto a fuzzy little critter, though.) It's inverted in some other species which do not suckle their young and have no breasts at all.
- In Taylor Anderson's Destroyermen series, there exists a species of cat-lemur humanoids called Lemurians, fittingly enough. Lemurian females have been noted early on that proportionality with humans are very similar, specifically the breasts. This leads to some comedic/awkward moments as the bulk of the humans are sex-starved males, and one of the secondary conflicts of the series.
- In M.C.A. Hogarth's Paradox series, the Pelted races vary considerably on this point, considering they lie all over the Sliding Scale of Anthropomorphism. The alien Chatcaava are said to be mammals (despite looking like dragons) and most of their females have human-like breasts, the Slave Queen being an exception, given her more masculine secondary sex characteristics.
- Averted in Animorphs — Andalites are centaur-like aliens who could probably be classified as mammals, but the cover art gives Aldrea a decidedly "masculine" figure.
- In a MADtv (1995) skit, Babe the pig is a half-human, half-pig who is on Baywatch. All of the Baywatch lifeguards are upset until he gets a bikini top which covers his multiple rows of nipples.
- The Muppet Show depicts Miss Piggy as having breasts.
- This issue comes up a lot where anthropomorphic cattle are concerned. (And see also Furry Confusion.) To wit:
- There was a rather amusing discussion on whether female minotaur PCs of the text-based RPG Grendel's Revenge had "Udder Armor" or "Breast Plates" as part of their armor set. Thankfully, One Size Fits All provided no specific answers.
- Similarly, female Tauren in World of Warcraft have normal human breasts instead of udders, making for some really weird appearances. Though proportionately, tauren females are quite petite compared to the other races.
- Fridge Logic: The gargantuan udder on dairy cows is a product of artificial selection, which would never have happened for the sapient Tauren.
- Minotaurs in the Dungeons & Dragons setting Dragonlance. In one piece, a human taken captive by seafaring minotaurs notes that the first mate, whom he'd initially mistaken for male, has (modest) human-like breasts beneath her leather armor.
- In Dungeons & Dragons 3.0e, the artwork on the Monstrous Manual depicts Gynosphinxes with prominent breasts◊. This is on par with mythology, though. The original Monster Manual portrayed Gynosphinxes this way, too.
- Many humanoid mammalian characters from Magic: The Gathering, such as jaguar and leopard-like cat warriors or Kitsune Divine, have human breasts and curves.
- Rifts plays it both ways. Female Dog Boys are engineered to have humanlike busts apparently solely because it makes them more familiar and acceptable to humans... but considering the variation between canine-like and human-like physiology within the species, it's possible some don't. Kill Hounds, which are more in the plausible deniability column, have no such niceties. The feline Battle Cats have humanlike breasts as well. Their Kill Cat cousins, the rat and bat conversions, and the Ursa Warriors are anyone's guess; very little art of them exists.
- A female Mutant Rat in the Machinations of Doom comic has 'em.
- Warhammer 40,000: Tau females don't have breasts, and their species' armor doesn't accentuate the male/female differences either. Try telling that to fanartists though.
- Wing Commander seems to be a little confused about this. In the "Secret Missions" add-on to the original Wing Commander, the Kilrathi priestess is shown with a multi-part bra covering three sets of human-style breasts, while the Wing Commander Academy cartoon showed the relatively few females that were seen as being flat-chested, and the intro to Wing Commander Prophecy has a wall drawing of a Kilrathi female with one pair of human-style breasts.
- The female Khajiit Cat Folk in The Elder Scrolls, who have normal human breasts. In Oblivion, this almost seems like laziness on the part of the developers, as all humanoid characters have the exact same male or female body model, merely retextured and with a few features added (Claws on Argonians, tails on Khajiit).
- The fox spirits in Jade Empire have rather... pronounced... secondary sexual characteristics. They're a rather obvious expy of Huli Jing, a mythological race known for using sexuality to confuse and utterly screw with humans.
- Star Fox is populated by Funny Animals, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that every prominent female character in the series when shown in full-body profile possesses breasts. Krystal is probably the most notable, given the outfit she appeared in during her debut.
- Mrs. Boggy in Banjo-Kazooie. One of the most blatant of the game's many very inappropriate (and thus hilarious when discovered) hidden references/images, most of which are 100% more subtle than... those. They're at least completely covered, but just look at her running animation and make your own decision as to whether you're supposed to notice or not.
- In Guild Wars 2, the Charr females have no breasts, but one of the Anet Art Designers came out and said that the Charr females were either going to lack breasts entirely, or they were going to have six.
- Tail Concerto and its sequel Solatorobo have the cat-like Felineko and the dog-like Caninu with the females of both races having human breasts.
- The female characters of Sonic the Hedgehog run a gamut: Blaze the Cat is generally an aversion, being more or less flat chested, while Amy Rose is often given a modest bust in her post-Adventure design. Rouge the Bat has by far the largest chest of the cast, particularly in her Sonic Adventure 2 debut, where she infamously had out of control Jiggle Physics. While her size and cleavage got toned down significantly in later entries, Rouge still has the most noticeable bust.
- In Nip and Tuck, most every female depicted of whatever species (apart from Hortense, a lizard) is amply endowed.
- Sluggy Freelance:
- Lampshade Hanging with the "Star Trek Adventure" where they meet an amazingly pneumatic Alien who is a male of his species.
- A No Celebrities Were Harmed version of World of Warcraft has the female of every species looking like a supermodel with a weird-looking head.
- The Whiteboard: Pretty much all of the regularly depicted female funny animals (all based on mammal species) are rather well-endowed with human-style breasts, which isn't treated in the comic as being unusual in any way.
- Broken Plot Device, aside from the reptilians with breasts, has cats, rabbits, elephants, rats, and other animals with boobs, with the largest pair owned by Sunny, a mole.
- TwoKinds: Keidran women have human-like breasts, but also several pairs of mammaries down their stomach (all hidden by fur).
- Freefall has Florence Ambrose, a "Bowman's Wolf" with a human-like body. While she has multiple pairs of mammaries (conveyed amusingly by multiple censor boxes when a robot looks at her) and her body outline resembles a human female's in its silhouette, she's completely flat-chested. Note that a wolf or dog would not have protruding breasts save when lactating.
- In Poppy O'Possum, most female mammal characters have humanoid breasts, with the exception of marsupials like opossums. Though Poppy shoves a pair of balled-up socks down her front to make it look like she has boobs.
- Sequential Art: All of the female furries featured so far are prominently well-endowed. This seems to be a running theme with all of jollyjack's female furry characters, often to ridiculous extremes.
- All the female characters in A&H Club, but of particular note is that Adrian the kangaroo has breasts and teats in her pouch like a real kangaroo.
- The Amazing World of Gumball is a place where Everything Talks, and almost avoids this trope, with many of the females lacking all the Tertiary Sexual Characteristics. The exceptions seems to be Ms. Simian (a baboon) and Granny JoJo (rabbit), who have very noticeable, sagging breasts, while Richard (rabbit) and Mr. Brown ("furry slug") have rather sizable moobs (the latter is only visible when his fur is out of the way).
- Animaniacs has Minerva Mink. She was so busty that some shots of her abundant breasts were edited in the DVD collection. The intent was for her full cleavage to resemble a large puff of fur, but resulted in what fans tend to refer to as a "uni-boob". Apparently, what was OK on broadcast TV at 4 pm in 1992 was a little too spicy for a DVD release in 2009.
- Bob's Burgers: The manatee dummy in "Mutiny on the Windbreaker". Half-justified as real manatees have two nipples on their chest that led sailors to believe they saw mermaids.
- Gadget Hackwrench from Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers has a clearly feminine shape even in her usual overalls, and it's especially obvious when she dresses up in her Jessica Rabbit-inspired red dress, where in some shots she's actually sporting cleavage.
- In the 1941 remake of the 1934 Disney cartoon Orphan's Benefit, the normally flat-chested Clarabelle Cow gains a human-like bust after being accidentally undressed by Goofy.
- My Little Pony Tales has an episode where Bon Bon fantasizes about being a supermodel. She imagines herself in a bikini and a one-piece swimsuit both with breasts.
- Nu, Pogodi! uses this, though, amusingly, the female pigs are depicted as having multiple (eight or so) breasts.
- SpongeBob SquarePants: When not wearing her space suit, SpongeBob's friend Sandy Cheeks has noticeable breasts. Her other clothes confirm its not just the bikini.
- While cows are mammals, the female bovines on Wild West C.O.W.-Boys of Moo Mesa have human-like breasts instead of udders.
- Sophia the aardvark and Melisa the raccoon in The Raccoons both have two human-like breasts in their chests.
- Zig-Zagged by Babs Bunny of Tiny Toon Adventures:
- For the most part her figure didn't differ all that much from the male Buster, with a feminine shape only hinted at by her baggy top and flared skirt. One episode even had Babs wearing a hula skirt without a top and no sign of boobs at all.
- However whenever episodes play up the Ship Tease between her and Buster she suddenly sports a much more feminine figure. In "Thirteensomething" she's sporting outright cleavage.
- And of course, whenever she does impressions of Buxom Beauty Standard characters or celebrities like Jessica Rabbit or Dolly Parton the boobs come with it.
- Fitz's wife from 12 oz. Mouse.
- Orangina commercials have breasts on everything: deer, flamingoes, octopi, flowers, and male-colored peacocks.
- The Worldkillers from the New 52 play this straight and avert it. Of the three members confirmed to be female, Reign and Perrilus have this, while Deimax has the biggest, most masculine build of the lot, and except for the Non-Mammalian Hair, doesn't look female at all.
Films — Animation
- Fritz the Cat heavily abused this, featuring bared breasts in nearly every scene in a world populated only by animals, including crows and a frog woman.
- Sunshine Barry & the Disco Worms: All of the female worms have breasts.
- Incryptid: A wide variety of non-primate cryptid species have breasts on their females, whether they're reptiles, insects, or even plants. This is explained as a form of mimicry: being able to pass as humans is an imporant defensive strategy for pretty much all cryptid species, cryptids who can't pass themselves off as humans get violently selected against by the Covenant of St George.
- In Mario & Luigi, Bowser gets them after Cackletta takes over his unconscious body — on the outside of his shell.
- All the various anthropomorphic races featured in the MUCK game SouthernCross. Almost all of the races are human, with a bad-tempered Planet-God having tried to kill humanity by mutating them over and over until they died. It didn't quite work, and while a few pure human lines survive, "human" now refers to any anthropomorphic character not explicitly stated as Non-Human. Therefore, they not only possess mammalian features that would not be at home on their apparent species, but are also reproductively compatible with other "humans" (but generally not with explicitly stated non-humans).
- Sonic The Hedgehog always features a planetnote populated by various sapient animal races, the females of which naturally develop humanlike breasts as they approach adulthood regardless of what sort of Funny Animal they are. As such, this trope is present in every single iteration of the franchise in every continuity, in every medium. Of those, only Sonic the Hedgehog (Archie Comics) bothered to justify this trope (and all the Interspecies Romance and hybrid offspring in the series) by revealing that all Mobians are the result of genetic nukes being dropped on Earth by the Xorda during an intergalactic war with humanity, which had the side effect of causing animals to rapidly evolve via their DNA blending with that of humans. In essence, all Mobians are actually the same species of half-human hybrids, and the different "species" of them are actually races.
- Of particular note is Cosmo from Sonic X. In a climactic moment near the very end of the series, she suddenly transforms from a child around Tails' age to a full-grown adult, complete with breasts and child-bearing hips... in spite of the fact that no other female of her species, including her mother, is portrayed with these.
- In Star Trek Online, all females use the same body model. This includes Andorians (who have some insectoid features, like a partial exoskeleton and antenna, and four genders, with the one that actually bears the young doing so in a fashion rather like marsupials) and Saurians (lizard-people, what else).
- In The Pirate's Fate, pretty much all females in the game have (often large) breasts regardless of species, from the mammalian Morgana to the reptilian Tam-Tam to the shark-like Breena.
- Explained away in Triquetra Cats with the Antreyui, descendants of humans who have been spliced with the DNA of animals, so they're not so much anthropomorphic animals but theriomorphic people. The lizard people and bird people may have reptilian and avian traits and features, but they are still mammals.
- NSFW Comix was doing a few comics with dinosaur-related puns, which he called "Dinosaurgy". In one, it shows an ostensibly female triceratops stripping with bare breasts. In the flavor text, he acknowledges that it's impossible since dinosaurs aren't mammals, and therefore, have no mammaries.
- Jack uses this trope, as it includes insects, birds, reptiles, and dinosaurs, all with breasts. Possibly justified, however, as all furries were created from human DNA. It's possible that the mammal/bird/etc classifications are just cosmetic. They even show a mammalian furry married to an insect "furry", with little big-eyed mammal kids with antennae. Oddly enough, they've showed such cross-breeds earlier many times in the series, without the explanation given until well into the story.
- Neopets is an unusual selective example. The female neopets the user has all have animal proportions and Tertiary Sexual Characteristics. In the various story arcs though it is very common to find female neopets who are more humanoid and sport breasts.
- Some (but not all) of the royalgirl (a female neopet painted with the Royal Paint Brush)pets that users can own can also seem to have them, most notably the Royalgirl Draik◊ and the Royalgirl Zafara◊. Howerver, because of customization (which requires all pets to have the same pose and general body shape), this was toned down a lot.
- The Adventure Time episode "Slow Love" has female giant-sentient-snails with breasts. Plus bonus lipstick and eyelashes.
- In Bojack Horseman, it makes no difference what species the characters are. If she's an anthropomorphic female, she will either have breasts or visible cleavage.
- Many of the female Tiny Toon Adventures characters had breasts whether or not their species were mammals in real life, including Margot Mallard, Binky Bunny, Bimbette, and particularly Julie Bruin.
- Rosemon from Digimon Data Squad has jubblies that bounce.
- Mahoro from Mahoromatic subverts this nicely; she's a combat android and so big boobs would only be a hindrance. However, on the battlefield of love, she finds herself drastically under-armed when it comes to fighting for the affections of her Master, so much so that she changes her wish for Earth peace to a wish for bigger breasts as well as asking for a modification from her creators at VESPER in a letter "home." It is promptly denied to a round of applause.
- On an account of Fembot used in Go Nagai's works and Godannar, female (piloted) robots have breasts, which are used as giant missiles and gatling guns respectively.
- Star Wars Legends: T'ra Saa, despite being a sentient plant, embodies this (possibly to avoid alienating readers when she's shown to be in a relationship with a human male). She's made appearances in Republic and Legacy. Her species being shapeshifters at least makes it justifiable.
- Most 'female' robots in superhero comics get this treatment, if only to identify that they are indeed female despite not having any need for breasts and only being considered a specific gender due to the person their A.I. is based on. That and being fanservice to anyone who's into that sort of thing.
- Platinum a.k.a. Tina a.k.a. Platina is a robot built by Dr. Magnus, creator of The Metal Men. She has the body of a centerfold complete with metal mammaries. Despite this, Dr. Magnus constantly berates her for "acting like a girl" despite obviously having made her in the shape of one. Her creator and programmer also chastises her for her frequent displays of romantic interest in him. Dr. Magnus has issues. When the Metal Men appeared in the Superman/Batman series, Copper looks very much like a "black" (i.e. copper-colored) version of the "white" (silvery) Tina.
- Adventure Time: Banana Guard Academy introduces female Bananas, who have breasts.
- In the Adventure Time spin-off Thunder Road, one of the female cloud people has a bosom. (The other one doesn't.)
- This is used as a plot point in the Doctor Who Magazine comic story "The Soul Garden". The fact that a vaguely-humanoid plant alien has a bosom is a sign of the brainwashed human consciousness placed inside her fighting to reassert itself.
- Marvel Comics' Micronauts has Nanotron, a love interest to the robotic Microtron who has breasts to show that she is female.
Films — Animation
- A botched spell from Schmendrick in The Last Unicorn causes a nearby tree to sprout a female face and large breasts, with which it subjected the bumbling wizard to Marshmallow Hell. Possibly justified, as perennially-dateless Schmendrick's subconscious might've affected the magic's effects, and the tree did have a couple of suggestively-placed large boles on its trunk.
- The hotdog buns from Sausage Party are all female and they have a very noticeable bosom, even when they're supposed to be animated bread.
- The burrito from Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For Theaters has breasts.
Films — Live-Action
- The Borg Queen introduced in Star Trek: First Contact. Her body is almost entirely robotic, with only parts of her brain and her face being living tissue. Yet her chassis includes a pair of "nodes". Notable because the Borg have absolutely no sense of aesthetics, and most Borg drones are covered in unsightly, utilitarian technology. Though given that she's trying to seduce Data and/or Picard over to her side for much of the movie, perhaps those nodes are recent modifications to her chassis for the expressly utilitarian purpose of making that job easier.
- The Cactacae of Perdido Street Station. Justified by their being human/plant Mix-and-Match Critters, and implied to nurse their young once they've sprouted.
- The Neti from the Star Wars Legends, though they at least are shape-shifters and implied to choose such things because they want to look more humanoid, so as to fit in better in a galaxy dominated by humanoids in general and humans in particular. However, the Zelosians have no such excuse, though it's speculated to be either mimicry, or that they were genetically engineered.
- Isaac Asimov's "Feminine Intuition": The first model, JN-1, has a narrowed waistline to imply Fembot. Bogart objects to this, as well as the potential "breasts" that might go along with them. JN-5 is just a little more delicate in build then a 'male', with a tapering waist and a voice described as liquid and musical. Since Dr Asimov was known for lampooning robot tropes, it's likely that this was a deliberate dig at other 'female' robots in fiction.
- Lampshaded in Cassandra Kresnov: Crossover. By Sandy's own admission, she pretty much only has breasts because her (male) creators didn't like the idea of a flat-chested Artificial Human Super Soldier.
- Doctor Who: Jabe from "The End of the World". Possible justification, as her race ("From the Forest of Cheem, we have... trees!"), may be half-human (one of the "mongrels" referred to by Lady Cassandra). The only stated fact of their evolution is that they are descendants of tropical rainforests transplanted from Earth five billion years earlier.
- Zhaan from Farscape is a Plant Person. Who gets orgasms from solar flares, incidentally. She does avert Non-Mammalian Hair, though.
- Lyekka from Lexx. (Unfortunately for Stanley Tweedle, she's also "smooth round the bend".) Justified because she is a psychic predator that took that form specifically to prey on humans.
- Queen Machina and Princess Archerina from Power Rangers Zeo have breasts in spite of being members of a race of robotic beings.
- A borderline case comes from Star Trek: The Next Generation. The Borg certainly don't breastfeed, but allowed unit Seven of Nine to keep her fairly impressive set of functionless accessories. You would think the Borg would remove them as biological tissue takes energy to maintain, and thus reduces efficiency. Even less explicable are the breasts on the Borg Queen in the movie, but maybe that body was just for formal receptions. The Borg Queen only has her physical body created when she has need for it, after all.
- The titular robot from The Machine: Bride of Pin*Bot, who reappears in Jack*Bot.
- Prominently featured on the chrome Fembot in Viper, complete with chrome areolas.
- Dungeons & Dragons has the Wilden, a plant-like fey humanoid.
- Female Ghoran in Pathfinder have a couple of chest bumps◊, despite being sapient flowers. This may be justified given that the Ghoran adapted to resemble their human creators, who are definitely mammalian.
- Whereas the BIONICLE toys are, for the most part, aversions, the movie redesigns played the trope straight, even if subtly. The best example being Toa Metru Nokama, who did have a cleavage, with the top-part of her inner gears sticking out (these gears were less prominent on her male partners). Roodaka's are, in an interesting twist, less pronounced in her movie design. Allegedly her toy, although popular with fans, even caused complaining among certain groups for being so well endowed. However, Word of God says that even the males of her species are supposed to look exactly like her, though the only one we see is tiny and from the back.
- Several female Transformers have non-functioning breasts, including Arcee, Thunderblast, Beta, and all who are named Blackarachnia. (Most Blackarachnias are also at least partially organic... but they're spiders.) In one episode of Transformers: Cybertron, you get to see Thunderblast's "breasts"... jiggle. In another episode, she has nipples.
- In the Transformers: Prime series, Arcee and Arachnid are both fully metallic (as this continuity drops the organic hybrid angle of past shows), but both still have breasts.
- Botanica is a twofer: a plant that turns into a robot!
- Transmetal Airazor was the first ever western Transformers figure to be designed as a female (all others were either aborted during the design phase or were conceived as males but retroactively had their gender changed), and naturally, she has these. She's also partially organic, but she's supposed to be a bird.
- There's a large-breasted sunflower in Conker's Bad Fur Day. You need to pollinate her with the king bee to increase her bust size. Which you can then use as a trampoline. Apparently the dev team originally called them stamens, and then freaked out when, days before release, someone realized that stamens are the pollinator organ, not the pollinatee.
- Any Robot Girl that wasn't made for Sexbot purposes. Some of the others might be justified simply by aesthetics, but sometimes there is no excuse for the robots to be Ridiculously Human Robots, let alone Robot Girls with huge knockers.
- Aigis from Persona 3 is slightly justified in that her creators deliberately designed her that way so she could be given a fully-realized, human-like persona (which would allow her to manifest a Persona.) A sexual identity (even if she lacks the necessary equipment) is part of such self-identification within human society and for human interaction.
- EDI in Mass Effect 3 has the largest chest of any female in the series, which is saying quite a bit. Her body was designed as an infiltration unit that passes itself off as a human, but after the artificial skin was burned off, it just looked silly.
- In the MMO Wildstar, there is a playable race of robots called Mechari, and yes, the females have breasts. Mechari were specifically designed to be a race of Manipulative Bastards, and the more human they look, the easier that becomes.
- One minor subversion is Roll from the Marvel vs. Capcom games. When she uses her Hyper Roll manoeuvre, she grows into a giant robot with good-sized breasts ... that launch as missiles. Repeatedly. She doesn't need to store milk, so why not some RDX?
- Played with in Guild Wars 2 with the Sylvari, a race of Plant People. They are plants that mimic the human form for backstory reasons, including females with breasts, but they are not actually breasts in the mammalian sense and are non-functional in that role — they're simply plant growths that look like breasts.
- SCORPIO◊ in Star Wars: The Old Republic has robo-bosoms and hips.
- A female tree-android, working at Bandai Namco Entertainment, in Tekken Tag Tournament 2's ending for Mokujin (a male tree-android) sports a pair on her oddly shaped log torso. She's been around for a while; Mokujin started with a 'female' torso style in its debut in 3, with breasts and the best you could do to shape a wooden trunk into a dress.
- In Starbound, female Glitch (robots), Floran (plants), and Novakids (stellar gas creatures) all have quite a pair. The Glitch have the excuse that they're made to think they're organic people who nurse their young. Floran, by contrast, don't even have functional genders on anything other than a cosmetic level, and Novakid reproduction is a complete mystery to all outsiders.
- In The Elder Scrolls, Spriggans, a hostile tree-like Plant People race, take the form of humanoid females. All have a noticeable bust to their shape as well.
- The plant mutant Kanna from Blaster Master Zero II sports some VERY large breasts. Hilariously lampshaded by her top’s watermelon pattern.
- Lampshaded by plant-girl Castela in this Wapsi Square strip.
Castela: Let me repeat, "self conscious"! Never mind that in the past I've worn smaller, this's the last time I let you pick out my swimsuit now that I have these damn annoying mammal-bumps! Just stupid on a plant-girl, and I can't get rid of 'em!
- In the third Bosko, the Talk-Ink Kid cartoon "Congo Jazz", a palmtree promptly pulls its leaves down like a skirt, does a booty bump, and then proceeds to gyrate its coconuts.
- Big Brain, the only explicitly Fembot built by Grizzle in Adventures In Care-a-Lot, has a slight curve to her bust and Hartman Hips.
- In the Christmas Special Christopher the Christmas Tree, a number of anthropomorphic pine trees are talking about why they'll be the first to be picked. One has snow strategically placed to look like a boobs, and she even comments that she's "the fullest" while making her snowboobs jiggle. You can see this starting at 1:25.
- Many fem-bots on Futurama fall into this category. The thickly-built hookerbot with the low voice is briefly shown in one episode screwing one of her breasts onto her torso, implying that "she" is a transvestite (the "Are you a woman?" "I'm more woman than you can handle, honey" exchange is just the icing on the cake).
- In the Downtown episode "The Con", Alex and Serena look at a book of nude robot women with breasts.
- The Schoolhouse Rock! character, Interplanet Janet, is half human and half spaceship but sports a pair of metallic breasts.
- Master-mold from Wolverine and the X-Men (2009) is the mother of all Sentinels.
- Gems in Steven Universe are anthropomorphic, alien gem stones who create humanoid holograms for bodies. Rose Quartz seems to be the only one who had breasts, and she's also the most human-looking of them. Rose's real identity prior to faking her death, Pink Diamond, is a lot less human-looking and lacks breasts. When we meet some real Rose Quartzes in Steven Universe: Future, they also lack breasts, indicating that Pink Diamond included them as Rose to look more human.
- In a rare male version, Ricardo in The Grossery Gang webseries, a banana, has visible pecs without his peel.
- The Female Titan in Attack on Titan is named as such because it's the only Titan with visible breasts, despite Titans having No Biological Sex and lacking genitalia of any kind. What's more, because the Female Titan has no skin it's clear to see that its breasts are made of muscle, making them doubly useless.
- The June 1953 edition of EC Comics Weird Science featured a story called "Right on the Button" in which a man marries an alien woman who stabs him to death on their wedding night when she sees he has a navel, revealing that he is a (GASP!) mammal, born from a (GAG!) womb! But like all EC pretty girls, she has great tits!
- In Guardians of the Galaxy, the Centaurians initially had a marsupial-like pouch instead of breasts (though oddly, the females still cover the chest area with clothing), but when Kevin West took over, he promptly gave the Centaurian ladies boobs.
- The female fire elemental in Vow of Nudity is specifically mentioned to be busty, and her posted minifigure lives up to it.
Films — Animation
- Roz from Monsters, Inc. is a slug-like monster, with breasts.
- It's unclear what the denizens of Planet 51 are, but they reproduce by laying eggs, so they're likely not mammals.
- Lola and the other female Martians from Marcianos vs. Mexicanos have three nippleless breasts along with the three eyes that the Martians have by default.
Films — Live-Action
- Too many female aliens in Star Wars have them to count. Possibly parodied in Return of the Jedi, where one of Jabba's dancers has six breasts (though she at least appears to be near Human in appearance).
- Any of the female Half-Human Alien Hybrids from the Species movies.
- The Tymbrymi in the Uplift series have shape shifting qualities and as such usually don't have mammaries. If the necessity arises though features with the tactile feedback if not function of breasts can be acquired.
- M.C.A. Hogarth's Tales of the Jokka: Anadi Jokka have breasts, it's not entirely clear whether they are mammals even though they lactate, give live birth, and have hair, considering that they're aliens and have been known to change sexes during puberty. The descriptions of Jokka reproductive anatomy in The Worth of a Shell don't sound mammalian.
- In Discworld, trolls are basically vaguely humanoid piles of rock. In the novel Moving Pictures, Ruby the troll lounge singer is described as a cross between a stone age fertility goddess and a foothill. In The Art Of Discworld, Paul Kidby takes the reference to Venus figurines and gives her, in his own words, "a large rocky bust".
- Discussed and defied in Starsight. Spensa, the protagonist, has gone undercover disguised as a humanoid alien and is informed that the species she's pretending to be don't drink milk. She's nonplussed by this revelation, pointing out that the woman she's pretending to be has breasts and snarkily wonders if they're for decoration. It turns out they don't drink the milk of other creatures because they think it's gross; they do breastfeed their own infants and are apparently mammals or something reasonably similar.
- The Occupation Saga: Halkem are (apparently) Lizard Folk and Triki are Insectoid Aliens, but both have curves in the standard places. Justified and lampshaded with the latter: Jason learns later that the bumps on his Triki superior Colonel Cleff's chest are actually venom glands, not breasts.
"Which meant that the universe made some sense again - and that there wasn’t some mad god out there that insisted that all aliens in the universe be sexy curvaceous babes."
- Doctor Who:
- A Chimeron woman is shown nursing her child... with a miniature power generator. Chimerons suckle on energy. So why do Chimeron women have breasts?
- "The Vampires of Venice" jokes about it regarding the Saturnyninans, who are using perception filters to appear human, and are converting female humans into more of their kind, but whose females don't have breasts in their true form:
"Blimey, fish from space have never been so... buxom."
- In Star Trek: Enterprise, Trip gets raped by a forehead-of-the-week and grows nipples on his wrists. The alien has normal humanoid breasts.
- In Super Sentai, female monsters have run the gamut, from insect creatures◊ to robots◊ to animal creatures◊, the majority of which have had some epic boobage going on.
- A cartoon in a long-ago issue of Playboy showed a landed flying saucer with a bevy of semi-naked, very human-looking, very voluptuous "aliens" surveying the area. Spying on them from behind a nearby tree are two human males, one saying to the other "That's nothing, wait until you see their females."
- In 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons, the Shardmind are humanoid beings of psionic crystal with No Biological Sex, no default gender, and no biological means of reproduction, but some of them are illustrated with breasts all the same.
- There's a frankly horrifying case in Darksiders with Tiamat — a dragon/aye-aye/scorpion creature with the head of the thing from Predator... and outlandish breasts.
- In the MMORPG Earth Eternal the multitude of races, including demons, yetis, cyclopes, and robots, are different in much the same ways humans are. However, all of them, even those that look like birds or reptiles, are actually mammals created by the gods, and closer related to each other (and humans) than the species they resemble.
- In Grim Fandango, every human character is a stylised skeleton, yet the females have inexplicable bulges on their chests. This is consistent with the Day of The Dead figures that the artwork is based off of, and somewhat justified because the characters are Calaca dolls, not real skeletons. Hence the oversized heads, the non-transparent interior, etc.
- Mass Effect:
- In Mass Effect 2, quarians possess mammaries, which are obviously visible in the shape of their survival suits, and at one point a quarian explains that "bubbles" are used when a child is weaned from nursing off their mother's immune system but before they get a suit of their own. In Mass Effect 3, if a male Shepard completes a romance arc with Tali, the picture she gives him shows that quarians very closely resemble humans, confirming that they are mammalian.
- Cut dialogue from the second game would have suggested turians (bird-reptile analogues) avert this, but no female turians actually appeared until DLC for the third game. Compare Nyreen in her cloak and hood◊ to Nyreen in normal armor◊. It's likely because of her cloak and hood giving off that appearance.
- Cleanly averted with the krogans, whose males and females, the latter seen in Mass Effect 3, look exactly alike to a human eye (the females are distinguished by wearing what amounts to a burqa). Inverted when a krogan asks female Shepard if she's female.
"'Scuse me for askin', but — you're a female, right? You got those funny bumps, like an asari."
- Speaking of asari, they prefer mating with other species instead of their own for additional genetic diversity. So, what does an asari need to attract a, say, human to meld with? It's even discussed ingame how members of three different species consider an asari attractive. It's also not unlikely that their breasts work as, well, breasts (i.e. for nursing.)
- In Mass Effect Foundation comics (specifically in Issue 12), drell females are shown to have something resembling breasts, despite that the Codex tells that drell infants are able to eat solid food from the moment they are born. Due to this disparity, some Mass Effect fan artists prefer to go by the Codex implications and portray drell females without breasts. The games themselves do not show female drell models.
- The Vulcans in Odin Sphere are supposed to be fiery magma elementals but even when transformed they sports jiggly boobs.
- World of Warcraft:
- The Draenei are blue alien space goats, about as far removed from terrestrial mammals as you'd wanna get. And yes, the females have boobies. Orcs are alien humanoids as well, and also about as far removed from terrestrial mammals as Draenei, and their females get boobies too.
- Some earth elementals and Titan creations have breasts as well. If the later can be hand waved as being replica of their creators, they are still made of rock or metal and don't even reproduce sexually.
- StarCraft: Ghost development renders revealed that female Protoss have breasts, despite the fact that they are aliens unable to eat solid food, being purely photosynthetic. However, StarCraft: Ghost is not considered canon, and the Protoss females so far seen in the RTS wore chestpieces that weren't shaped in a way suggesting bulges underneath.
- The female Protoss seen in Starcraft II appear to be flat-chested. Zerg Queens, however, have a bulge on their chests that seems suggestive. Though it's possible that Sarah Kerrigan used her own DNA when she designed them.
- Female Forerunners of the Halo franchise have breasts. It's somewhat justified in that they and humanity were both created by the Precursors and are considered "brother species" by some, sharing many physical characteristic.
- Double from Skullgirls is a shapeshifter whose usual shape is a grotesque, vaguely liquid mass of viscera, contorted into a crude mockery of the feminine form that includes perpetually-bouncing "breasts".
- The Elder Scrolls:
- Atronachs are a type of unaligned lesser Daedra which are essentially the Elemental Embodiments of the elements they represent. Starting with Oblivion, Flame Atronachs take on a more feminine appearance, being made of fire and glowing hot pieces of armor. The chest piece gives them a distinctive bust.
- Several other varieties of lesser Daedra, including female Aureals, female Dremora, female Mazken, female Skaafin, female Spider Daedra, female Xivilai, and Winged Twilights (who are purely female) also possess breasts. To note, these are loosely demonic entities with Complete Immortality who do not reproduce. They have no biological need for mammaries. It is somewhat more justified for the Mazken than for other "female" Daedra, as they are known to use their female forms to trick and seduce mortals. (Hence their alternative name, Daedra/Dark Seducers.)
- Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door has Madame Flurrie, a wind spirit with mammaries that have their own sound effect when they jiggle. Flurrie is especially notable in that she appears to be the only female character in the entire game to even have breasts at all.
- Whether they are aliens or robots tends to vary, but the Bomber race in Bomberman either way are decidedly non-mammalian and the females usually have breasts. Most notable with the more endowed Pretty Bomber, Cyclone Bomber, and Beauty Bomber.
- In Homestuck, troll reproduction is much closer to that of insects than humans (although they do end up looking humanoid). Nonetheless, the adult troll females that we eventually "see" do possess breasts. Author Andrew Hussie responded to this trope by saying that the readers shouldn't be so sure that they actually know what the biological purpose of trolls breasts is.
- Similarly, the Carapacians are living chess pieces with Ken-Doll crotches, but the Queens still have boobs, as do some of the female Pawns.
- Hala River from Irregular Elis is an alien with breasts.
- When Gabe, in Penny Arcade, gleefully remarks that an up-coming video game may feature boobs, Tycho gently admonishes him for thinking so pedestrian: "Imagine a Chik'thar hive maiden scuttling out of her mottled carapace. Her inviting, transluscent thorax heaving with ripe larvae. She retracts her guard plates, where forty alien breasts bristle with nipples... (eyes glaze over) Yes, yes, a thousand times yes..."
- Lampshaded in the Sluggy Freelance arc "Years of Yarncraft", when Zoe points this out to Torg, Torg tells Riff how to tell which of the slimeblobs are female. Yep, it's boobs.
- Dragons from Draconia Chronicles have a noticeable pair of bulges on their upper torsos. However, they're clearly beneath their hides. The author states they're actually "flight muscles".
- The Non-Adventures of Wonderella parodies the Most Common Superpower when, in a reboot, everybody gets mammoth mammaries. Including featureless luminous spheres.
- Lavender from El Goonish Shive, is a member of a One-Gender Race of shapeshifting aliens but chooses to appear as a tall female with large breasts. It's hinted that she's in love with and is trying (unsuccessfully) to seduce her human boss.
- Awful Hospital has Molly (an ambulatory bag of biological waste), Tori (a circulatory system in a humanoid shape), and BBQ Girll (an anthropomorphic grill) have chest bumps that may or may not represent breasts. What's weird is that none of the other female characters (aside from the human protagonist) have any human physical traits, let alone recognizably feminine traits, so it's anyone's guess why these three adhere to this trope. BBQ Girll at least was designed to resemble a knock-off fast food mascot.
- Res Nullius features Hazel, a decidedly reptillian alien with a modest bosom.
- Goodbye Strangers: A few stranger stains have disturbingly human-like sexual characteristics even though strangers do not sexually reproduce and have No Biological Sex. Most commonly you will see strangers vaguely imitate feminine Tertiary Sexual Characteristics. Strangers that mimic human Secondary Sexual Characteristics like breasts or possess actual genitals are less common but do exist.
- Toki and most of her friends have decently impressive racks but only Toki and Doki are biological mothers (Bunny is a Parental Substitute for her youngest cousins) but they are never seen or ever mentioned as to have nursing them (their breasts can be used for that purpose). However, could it be that their offspring are born with teeth?
- Ben 10:
- In the What If? episode "Gwen 10", some of Gwen's female versions of the aliens have busts. Including the one that's essentially made of gemstone. This is even weirder, given than Gwen herself had yet to hit puberty. Though the aliens Ben transforms into also seem way past puberty.
- Another Omnitrix-wearing version of Gwen shows up in Omniverse. Since she's only a year older, most of this Gwen's aliens don't appear much more physically developed, with the exception of Wildvine, who possesses noticeable breasts despite being a) eleven, and b) a plant.
- Green-Skinned Space Babe Xylene, who sports an impressive set. She mentions that her species hatches from eggs. OK, maybe she's a monotreme and would nurse them afterwards. Oh, but then she says that parents of her species do not take care of their offspring at all. Really?
- Myaxx is pretty well endowed, seeing as her species seems to be extremely Squidlike.
- Omniverse introduced a villainess named Subdora, a member of a race of vaguely anthropomorphic (Subdora herself being more humanoid than the other members of her species seen on screen), three-eyed salamanders. Not only is she fairly well-endowed for a salamander, she also wears a midriff-baring top which reveals that she possesses a navel.
- In general, pretty much every female alien design in the franchise includes breasts, be they mammalian, reptilian (e.g. the frog-like Attea and the above-mentioned Subdora), or otherwise (e.g. the Blob Monster Lenopans — and for bonus points, while they can all disguise themselves as humans, only the females are shown to be able to take on a humanoid blob form).
- In the What If? episode "Gwen 10", some of Gwen's female versions of the aliens have busts. Including the one that's essentially made of gemstone. This is even weirder, given than Gwen herself had yet to hit puberty. Though the aliens Ben transforms into also seem way past puberty.
- South Park:
- Parodied in the Heavy Metal tribute, appropriately entitled "Major Boobage." Everything in the various dream sequences sports an impressive set of breasts, complete with nipples. There are ostrich-things with breasts, planets that are disembodied breasts, and a trio of trolls with huge breasts growing out of their shoulders. The kicker? There is exactly one human woman — "and you never really get a good look at her boobs". Only her boobs were censored.
- Mr. Hankey's alcoholic wife (who is Talking Poo) has breasts, which she seems quite eager to show them to people. Once, in an argument, Mr. Hankey says that everyone can tell they're silicorn.
- There is the Drawn Together twist ending parodying the first "Superman" movie, where Captain Hero changes history — and the evolutionary timeline — to make everyone boob-monsters that go around saying "Boob," Pokémon-style.
- On Gargoyles, the title species comes in a variety of shapes from vaguely reptilian to mammalian, but females always have breasts. Word of God claims that however they look, gargoyles belong to their own class of animals called "gargates" (which descended from dinosaurs or similar creatures), and while they lay eggs, females do nurse.
- In the Toonsylvania episode "Phil's Brain", Phil's brain Larry Cortex received a Mail-Order Bride named Sarah Bellum. Sarah Bellum was an anthropomorphized brain like Larry and had a noticeable bust.
- The Caitians from Star Trek: The Animated Series, Cat Folk which reappeared in Star Trek Online. They're basically human-sized anthropomorphic cats, in which the females sport very human figures with noticeable breasts. One forum commenter remarked that, as cats, they should technically have three pairs of breasts.
- Jamba!'s ringtone mascot "Crazy Frog", a.k.a. "The Annoying Thing", sporting ambiguous but noticeable genitalia that caused some controversy when he began appearing in late night ringtone ads. When he first began appearing in music videos in the United Kingdom, a prominent black bar was used to censor his groin area. With the exception of the tailed frog, amphibians don't even have external genitals.
Anime & Manga
- In Doctor Slump, Obotchaman, a robot created by Dr. Mashirito, appears to have a penis, as seen when Senbei attached Arale's head on Obatchaman's body. Peasuke ends up walking in on Arale changing clothes, leading him to temporarily believe Arale was transgender. In the remake Arale shows it to Senbe while her body and Obotchaman's were swapped for a repairing purpose.
Films — Animation
- A female animal with the male variant shows up in Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs- a female saber-toothed squirrel with pecs.
- Scrat gets all the fur ripped off his chest, exposing two dots of nipple. Not only are there fewer nipples present than seems plausible for his species, which would presumably have large litters like other squirrels, but rodents' nipples are generally arranged in paired lines that extend forward from the groin to the chest, not one pair on the chest as in human males (and females). And male rats and mice don't have any at all.
- Commander Vachir from Kung Fu Panda is a male rhinoceros with nipples on his chest.
Film — Live-Action
- The T. rex in Caveman really shouldn't have had external genitalia at all, although at least they only protrude slightly.
- From the Not in Front of the Parrot! page:
A man was walking through a pet store when a parrot called for his attention. "Buy me, I'm a very interesting parrot!" The man stopped and asked "What's so interesting about you?" "I have no legs," said the parrot. "Well how do you stay on the perch?" the man asked. The parrot replied "I have a very long penis and wrap it around the perch!". The man did think this was an interesting parrot and bought it. One day the man came home from work and the parrot said "Your friend Harry was over today!" The man said "Really?" "He was hugging your wife!" The man asked for more information. "They were kissing!" The man asked for more info. "They took their clothes off!" Infuriated, the man demanded what happened next. The parrot responded "I dunno, I got a woody and fell off the perch!"
- In Small Gods, a tortoise who's really the god Om is lifted into the air by a chelonicidal eagle, but persuades it to deliver it to a specific location rather than drop it on a rocky surface. Its method of persuasion involves a hard beak and a solid grip upon certain delicate pieces of anatomy... anatomy which, as a bird, the eagle wouldn't actually have. (At least, not externally where they can be grabbed.)
- In the Annotated Pratchett File v9.0, there's a bad joke cited in the Moving Pictures section about a toad with a troublesomely yellow penis. In reality, for a toad even to have a penis would be far more troublesome than its coloration.
- In Petty Pewter Gods, Garrett tells a nosy hustler that he controls Mr. Big's chatter by tugging on a concealed thread that's tied to the parrot's little bird balls. Justified because the only thing Garrett's really yanking is the hustler's chain.
- In American Gods, Anansi tells a story of how he tricked a tiger into swapping its tiger's testicles for his own tiny little spider testicles.
- In Farscape, when Chiana, in a fight with a Scarran, asks, "Hey, do Scarrans have mivonks?" and then kicks for them... then winces and hops around, having hurt her foot. It replies that they do, but they're on the inside, and obviously well-protected.
- Doctor Who:
- Commander Strax was made into a nurse as punishment for being a failed Proud Warrior Race Guy. This apparently extends to being genetically modified into being the perfect nurse, including the ability to generate "magnificent quantities of lactic fluid".
- In parody The Curse of Fatal Death, the Master, in league with the Daleks, has been given by them a pair of "Dalek bumps" which take the form of two gold metal hemispheres on his chest.
- On a segment of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver about China's "one child" policy, Donald Duck was depicted with a corkscrew-shaped Gag Penis and balls. The former was (apart from size) anatomically accurate for a duck, but the external scrotum was not.
- One Hungarian variant of the "bogeyman", used by parents with unruly children to Scare 'Em Straight, is a giant owl with a copper penis. Whether the penis in question is prosthetic or just copper-colored, it has no place on a bird of that type.
- Raunchy versions of Aristophanes' The Birds include lines about a rooster crowing when he feels his morning erection rather than the coming dawn. Some performances in ancient times illustrated this with a chicken-costumed actor sporting a Gag Penis.
- Deltarune: In Chapter 2, Berdly (a bird monster) commissions a gold statue of himself that has gigantic muscles and a speedo with "IQ" printed on it. The statue also has nipples. Queen says she didn't know Berdly had nipples. Berdly replies that he doesn't, but in his ideal world, he will have them.
- Dreamwalk Journal: as noted above in the Insects section, it's about anthropomorphic insects and arachnids. All females have big boobs, all males have big external genitalia, and everybody gets to have sex with everybody else, including two visiting human women.
- The Order of the Stick:
Gannji: And I don't need your standard-issue loincloth, I've been walking around without pants this entire time! It's called a "genital sheath," look it up. Hey, while you're at it, look up "hemipenes," because you can suck both of my—
- A graphic insult slung at Belkar by the kobold Oracle (Lickmyorangeballshalfling) caused a debate among fans about whether doing as he'd suggested would require invasive surgery.
- A later strip has a lizardfolk note the mammalian-minded wardrobe of the gladiators' prison.
- Sequential Art: Seemingly averted with Pip (although he does use tissues), but played completely straight with Liam the lion-furry king of not-Narnia, especially since he is naked literally the entire time.
- Duck from Almost Naked Animals has nipples.
- On American Dad!, Roger is a male Grey alien. While he does not have humanoid breasts, he nevertheless goes through a cyclical mating phase where he can lactate. And accidentally impregnate humans via CPR.
- The titular Harvey Beaks (who is a bird) mentions having nipples in "The Rebel".
