* In ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians,'' Polyphemus' island is home to a flock of carnivorous, hippo-sized sheep that can devour a deer in less than a minute, leaving only a pile of bones. Percy describes them, rather aptly, as "piranhas with wool".

* ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'': EULALIA! And that's just the badgers. The other species like hares, mice, otters, squirrels, hedgehogs, and even ''moles'' are also quite capable of fucking up the shit of any vermin that threaten them. (Although a badger isn't exactly in a KillerRabbit scenario when what it's fighting is a rat.)

Except the actual rabbits, ironically enough.

* Most of the "Furies" from the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' [[StarTrekExpandedUniverse novel series "Invasion"]] resemble demonic creatures (because they're the beings that spawned the legends). A few, however, are fluffy and cute. They're still vicious killers who want their ancestral home back, though.

* ''Literature/WatershipDown'': Gen. Woundwort, who can fight (and beat) many of the beasts that prey on rabbits. As opposed to Bigwig, who is One {{Badass}} Rabbit. Also of mention would be the Black Rabbit of Inle, the most extreme version of this Trope, being he's basically the Grim Reaper in rabbit-form.

* The bunnydogs from ''TheWarAgainstTheChtorr'' series by David Gerrold appear to be the only friendly Chtorrans encountered by the humans. Unfortunately they also [[spoiler:represent humanity's future in the Chtorran ecology: as passive, contented creatures who are [[EatTheDog glad to be eaten]] by higher members of the food chain.]] There are also meeps. A mother rabbit will reject her own young to nurse meeps, who will then suckle her to death. One character darkly theorizes that the excessively cute bunnydogs are meant to be the equivalent for humans.

* In Terry Goodkind's ''[[SwordOfTruth Soul of the Fire]]'', an embodiment of evil either possesses or impersonates a chicken. Strangely, the main characters are capable of realizing this... which means you have two badasses who rule the known freaking world and who can alternately make people her slave or destroy armies with a wave of his hand ''scared shitless by a goddamn chicken''.

* The ''{{Sten}}'' series has Doc, an alien who resembles a cuddly koala bear. His species are in fact vicious predators which act cute to lure in prey; Doc is so bloodthirsty that he has to be fitted with a RestrainingBolt in order to interact with his teammates without killing them out of instinct.

* In ''Literature/{{Hometown}}'', one of [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the Heart Eater's]] primary servants is a coydog puppy. It has no more physical strength than any other puppy, but then, considering that it can ForceChoke a full-grown German Shepherd, it doesn't really ''need'' physical strength.
