* In ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' lore, all beings whose hearts become tainted with the power of Darkness become Heartless monsters. Most Heartless are mindless beasts with no resemblance to their original self. ''Very'' rarely, a Heartless will retain its original form and mind. The two canon examples of this are the human BigBad [[HumanoidAbomination Xehanort]]... and, for some unknown reason, [[Disney/TheLionKing the lion Scar]].

* Many of the creatures from the [[{{Memes/Tumblr}} Sandsverse]] are hinted to be more than just animals that sell random substances and {{troll}} each other. Horace, the Boar of the North, for example, shows his age as [[http://boarofthenorth100.tumblr.com/post/154734800564/how-old-are-u-horace a boar superimposed on a chart of the universe's life cycle]].

** The Beast, Gut's EnemyWithin and possibly the sentient incarnation of his hatred and rage ([[RageAgainstTheHeavens and boy does he]] [[UnstoppableRage have a lot of both]]), usually takes the form of a large canine with lightning bolt-shaped eyes. The Berserker armor's helmet, which was previously [[SkullForAHead skull-shaped]], now resembles its face when Guts wears it.

* In ''VideoGame/CrusaderKings2'', with the optional supernatural events on, players can achieve immortality and get immortal rivals that will attempt to kill them. For [[CloudCuckoolander insane]], characters, that rival could be [[HistoricalVillainUpgrade Incitatus]], an immortal horse whose centuries of life have made him far more intelligent than most humans.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': The world of Remnant has the Creatures of Grimm, which essentially resemble animals (and a few mythological beasts) but are much larger, and covered in [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver black fur, and white plates with red markings]]. Their bodies disintegrate when they die, they are drawn to negative emotions like a magnet, hunt ''exclusively'' humanity (not that they need to, as they apparently never eat food), and they can live for centuries and ''never stop growing'', as well as always getting smarter. No one on Remnant really knows what they are or where they came from either, because they've been hunting humanity for as long as anyone can remember.

** Quite a few of the gods of Aztec Mythology could qualify. Quetzalcoatl himself, for example, is a GiantFlyer who [[FeatheredSerpent resembles a cross between a snake, a bird and a dragon]]. He's [[TokenGoodTeammate not evil]] though.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': Exploited. TeamPet Morgana is a shapeshifting entity that can move between a regular housecat, a SuperDeformed FunnyAnimal, and a Citroën H Van. He can only be understood by those who have entered the MentalWorld of the Collective Unconscious, an EldritchLocation he has in-depth knowledge on. [[spoiler:His backstory reveals he was created from those same collective human desires by one of the PowersThatBe to help the heroes stop an EldritchAbomination out to eat reality.]]

* In ''Film/{{The Thing|1982}}'', the monster spends most of its time as an Alaskan pack dog. You catch a glimpse of what it really is, before it proceeds to eat all the other dogs. It also appears very much like a spider/insect-like organism in the [[Film/TheThing2011 prequel]] and in Carpenter's movie it still retains arthropod features like random insect legs. [[spoiler:More horrifyingly, [[Literature/WhoGoesThere in the novel]] that inspired all of this, it is also heavily implied it assimilated an albatross, so it can now fly.]] [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm That said]], there's no way of knowing what it really looks like, if it even has a "true" form at all, rather than being purely amorphous. Heck its nature as an abomination is debatable.
* King Ghidorah, {{archenemy}} of Franchise/{{Godzilla}} is what happens when the villain of a CosmicHorrorStory comes in the form of a giant golden dragon with three heads and a penchant for exterminating entire planets.

*** The film ''GodzillaMothraKingGhidorahGiantMonstersAllOutAttack'' take this even further by having Godzilla as a vengeful zombie-esque monstrosity resurrected by the forgotten souls who died in WWII to punish those who had forgotten them in the modern era. Not even the combined efforts of Mothra, Ghidorah (who happens to be a juvenile Orochi), and Baragon are enough to stop him. Keep in mind that the aforementioned three are considered to be ancient gods themselves.

* One [[MultipleChoicePast possible origin]] for Irys from the ''{{Gamera}}'' franchise falls under this. It suggests that Irys is actually Suzaku (AKA the "Vermillion Bird") of Asian folklore and is the ancient mortal enemy of Gamera (Who is said to represent Genbu the tortoise in this case). Of course, Irys doesn't really look like a bird. Rather, he/she/it looks more like some sort of bipedial creature with spears for arms and numerous tentacles coming out of its back.

* Creator/ClarkAshtonSmith's "The Seven Geases". The Franchise/CthulhuMythos deity Atlach-Nacha resembles a huge, hairy and hideous black spider. From the same author, we also have Tsathogghua and its extended family, who tend to have batrachian looks.

* Literature/TheBible has [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Behemoth]],[[GiantFlyer Ziz]] and the [[KrakenAndLeviathan Leviathan]]. Also the Second Beast from the Book of Revelation, which is described as bearing many crowns atop many heads, and is variously depicted as as being draconic, catlike or serpentine. [[BigCreepyCrawlies Beelzebub]] and [[MixAndMatchCritters Amon]] are also noteworthy examples.

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': way too many of the animal-like things in "Tennyo Goes to Hell", given where the story takes place.
* ''WelcomeToNightVale'': [[spoiler:The Beagle Puppy]] in Year Four. He seems cute at first, but as he made more appearances it became clear that he was more than what he seemed. As the year went by it was revealed that [[spoiler:Chad had summoned the Puppy, and that the Puppy]] was responsible for the Strangers coming to Night Vale. Everyone who looks at him gets the sudden urge to get [[spoiler:a dog]] along with an unending need to vomit. In ''Who's a Good Boy?

The kicker: his words imply, if not outright state, that [[spoiler:''he is Satan himself'']].
