* A traditional tale of the Kamba people from Kenya tells the story of a man who cultivated a field. The crops attracted gazelles so he put traps to defend his crops. One day he saw a lion had fallen in one of the traps. He freed the lion after making him promise that he would not hurt him. Once free, however, [[TheFarmerAndTheViper the lion]] [[ILied attacked him]]. Then the man convinced the lion to let him go after promising that he would give him the heart of every animal that fell on his traps from then on. One day his wife accidentally fell on one of the traps, and just as the man ran to free her the lion appeared and demanded the wife's heart as part of their agreement. The man refused saying that this wasn't part of the deal, so the lion killed the wife and badly injured the man. Moral of the story: [[SubvertedTrope Don't trust lions]]. [[DeconstructorFleet They fucking eat people]].

** The ''WebOriginal/ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum'' mission that sporked this particular fanfic does not directly feature this trope, but another PrehistoricMonster character, the villainous human-hating [[RaptorAttack Velociripper]], was accidentally brought to the PPC in the aftermath of the mission. Ripper would go on to pull a HeelFaceTurn in a later mission, cast aside his anti-human grudge, and become a close friend of the [[AuthorAvatar newest persona]] of his author, who sympathized with him upon hearing of [[MakeWayForTheNewVillains just how badly even his homefic had treated him]] and gave him a much-needed chance to find peace.

* Subversion with most RealLife wild animals- because not AllAnimalsAreDomesticated, as some people found out. Also subverted with some RealLife domestic animals. And, of course, also played straight with some wild animals--though without the kind of expert knowledge to reliably know when it will or will not work (and how to do it right), it's quite a gamble to take. Many people take a reasonable compromise by helping the animal enough to save it/get it out of trouble, but will do everything to keep themselves safe while doing so (such as keeping their distance, using long tools and various things for protection in case the animal reacts negatively, always erring on the side of caution, etc).
