Sometimes, there are differences in the moral coding of a species across different time periods. For the longest time, wolves were among the most demonized animal species, but in modern times, they can be either good or bad. Also, sperm whales were generally pegged as bad guys in the 19th and early 20th centuries, but that portrayal of sperm whales has faded away as whaling became discredited. Before people knew that gorillas were gentle animals, they were generally cast as [[KillerGorilla pugnacious bad guys]].

Sometimes, there are differences with the species' moral coding across different cultures. For example, in Western cultures, ravens are generally portrayed negatively morality coding wise, but in Pacific Northwest Native American folklore, they are GuileHero[=es=].
