* Skunks are quite adorable if left alone. However, they tend to walk around rather boldly and have been known to stand up to bears and mountain lions, normally ending by sending the predator running with a face full of musk, and if they're smart they don't come back. If their spray fails, they can resort to tooth and claw fighting, and can seriously mess you up. And mother skunks are [[MamaBear quite protective of their children]], making them even more BadAss.

* You know TyrannosaurusRex? Well, according to discoveries in paleontology, it was covered in feathers. Not BadAss flight feathers like an eagle (''Velociraptor'' had those), but fluffy, downy feathers like a baby chicken. And remember how [[NightmareFuel/JurassicPark terrifying]] the T. rex was in JurassicPark? Now imagine that with fluffy baby feathers. [[GrotesqueCute D'awww]]

* Creator/MasiOka is best known for playing {{adorkable}} characters like [[Series/{{Heroes}} Hiro Nakamura]], thanks to his chubby, plushie-like appearance, [[TheShortGuyWithTheGlasses short stature]], and [[OlderThanTheyLook seemingly perpetual youth]]). He's also a ''shodan'' (black belt) in UsefulNotes/{{Kendo}} and once took [[http://people.com/tv/heroes-reborn-masi-oka-on-set-injury-whats-next-for-hiro-nakamura/ a kick to the face, but kept filming instead of stopping to tend to his bleeding]].

*** If you ever want to be reminded of the power in the jaws of even a tiny dog, feed them a raw chicken wing[[note]](''raw'', the way the dog would eat it if it were wild and had caught its own dinner)[[/note]] and remember that the bones in that wing are really no smaller than the bones in your fingers. How many times has a BigFriendlyDog slurped your hand into its mouth and you got it back whole? It has nothing to do with the dog's inability to crush your bones.

* The tufted titmouse is a funny little bird with a funny little name. It will also fearlessly steal the hair off passing animals (dogs, cats, humans...) and use it to line its nests.

** Shiba inus are small dogs who have recently gained popularity around the world for their cute appearance. While it isn't obvious at first glance, they were originally bred to hunt animals larger than themselves-including boars and ''bears''.

** Shiba inus are small dogs who have recently gained popularity around the world for their cute appearance. While it isn't obvious at first glance, they were originally bred to hunt animals larger than themselves-including boars and ''bears''. When put in homes with other dogs, their speed, aggression, and take-no-prisoners attitude have enabled them to dominate bigger dogs than themselves including pitbulls and rottweilers to become the alpha dog of the house.

* Mount Rainier looms over northwest Washington, including UsefulNotesSeattle, Tacoma, and dozens of miles of Interstate 5. The picturesque peak is featured on most Washington license plates. Should it erupt, it will kill tens of thousands of people, destroy thousands of buildings, and cause billions--possibly trillions--of dollars of damage. There's a reason it's called the most dangerous volcano in the United States.

* [[NepaliWithNastyKnives Nepali]] at least according to the national stereotype. No need to expound on that! [[KukrisAreKool Their knives sure ain't adorable]].

** Some articles have described cats as not being truly domesticated. This makes sense. If your cat leaves home, he or she has a great chance of being able to survive in the wild hunting things like a furry little Rambo. Your chihuahua, not so much. [[note]]Cats are domesticated, but not nearly on the same level of dogs. Unlike with dogs and livestock animals, humans never actually made an active effort to domesticate cats. When agriculture was developed, humans were able to store food for long periods of times. This attracted rodents like mice and rats. The cats learned that where there were humans, there were mice, so cats came by to eat and only tolerated the humans. Humans only tolerated the cats because cats killed rodents that otherwise would've wiped out the food supply.[[/note]]

Also cats, being obligate carnivores, were not interested in the food stores that were attracting the rodents.[[/note]]

* Squirrels, due to their sheer determination when attempting to raid bird feeders.
* Bears. Most of them just look like big, fluffy dogs (which is appropriate as canines are their closest relatives besides each other of course.) Seeing them in zoos can desensitize people to them especially polar bears and panda bears. The former are the most carnivorous bears by necessity and the latter are often underestimated but are all too willing to protect their young with fang and claw.
