* Dolphins. Don't let their cute appearances and playful antics fool you, they are actually capable of killing sharks. Just to put you in the right mindset; You know how they're always smiling? They aren't smiling because they're that happy all the time, they're smiling because ''that's just how their faces look.'' [[TheJoker Sound familiar?]] Not only are dolphins the only other known mammal, aside from humans, that will copulate for pleasure as well as breeding, but they're also the only other known ''thrill-killer'' in nature aside from the domestic housecat...

* Most situations of ChildSoldiers are rather [[TearJerker heartbreaking]], but [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maly_Powstaniec the "Little Insurrectionist" statue]] commemorating young volunteers during the [[LaResistance Warsaw Uprising]] against [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons the German occupation]] is kinda cute, and definitely badass.

** They are the descendants of wolves, who are known to have incredibly powerful, bone-crushing jaws, ridiculous amounts of stamina, and hearing and sense of smell beyond human comprehension, and enough intelligence to work together and use surprisingly complex strategies to take down prey several times more powerful than themselves. Almost all dogs have at least some of these traits left over. Suffice it to say that most domestic dogs, including the smaller ones, (barring such intense human manipulation as is seen in the chihuahua) are almost as tough as their wolf ancestors- and a few are even tougher. Dogs ''are'' wolves, or rather a sub-species of them. Even the most tame and lovable puppy dog has those instincts running around somewhere, waiting for the right trigger to bring it out. Which is why so many of them love to play fetch. They have been carefully bred for thousands of years to be as domestic as possible, but almost everyone has seen a loveable dog go absolutely PapaWolf when he thought his family was being threatened. Recognition of this trait is an important part of responsible dog ownership.

Then you realize that the reason they look like that is because they were bred to fight badgers.

* Dogs. They are adorable with their big eyes, ears, droopy/smiling faces and wagging tails aren't they? Well, some have been bred for herding livestock, hunting, rodent control, guarding, helping fishermen with nets, and pulling loads, in addition to their roles as companions. They can also serve as service dogs such as guide dogs, utility dogs, assistance dogs, hearing dogs, rescue dogs, and psychological therapy dogs provide assistance to individuals with physical or mental disabilities. Not to mention there are some pretty capable police dogs out there who sniff for bombs/drugs, chase after suspects, and can sniff out decomposing corpses.

Easily the most badass of all are paratrooper dogs, as in a team of a human handler and a dog who are both military paratroopers and work in perfect unison.

* Bears. Most of them just look like big, fluffy dogs (which is appropriate as aside from seals, 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. People tend to think of herbivores as having weak jaws, but bamboo is actually incredible tough and takes massive jaw power to chew. One of the Chinese names for the giant panda is "[[NamesToRunAwayFrom iron-eating animal]]."

* [[HelloProject Ishikawa Rika]] once broke 12 concrete tiles with one blow from her bare hands, sure it turned out they were especially designed to break, but when Takahashi Ai tried to do the same thing on another show she failed miserably until she resorted to stamping on the stack instead.

* Chimpanzees and other apes can be pretty cute at times. They are also possess bone-crushing strength and incredible ferocity when threatened. Also, unlike most animals, they're smart enough to remember if someone's previously done something to make them angry. And to plan out how to get back at that person. A zoo chimpanzee once collected a bunch of rocks in his enclosure and then stocked them for later. Once visitors began to annoy him, he started flinging the rocks at them. Fortunately, his aim wasn't very good, so no one was hit.
