Do not confuse this with ''Film/TheBadNewsBears'' (the {{Trope Namer|s}}, though not an example), TheBear, which is about a big hairy ManlyGay guy or with ExitPursuedByABear, though that trope's name is an example of this trope. In [[DeathWorld Australia]], you should watch out for [[YowiesAndBunyipsAndDropBearsOhMy Drop Bears]]. MamaBear may be related but is usually metaphorical.

** Subverted -- sort of -- in an episode of the ''Gold and Silver'' series. In this case, the bad news came from a Teddiursa, a cute-looking bear cub that stole food and blamed it on other Pokemon. At the end of the episode, it evolved into an Ursaring at which point it could no longer use it's cuteness to steal food.

* In an earlier episode of ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'', Rocko and Heffer instigate a snowball fight with Ed Bighead, who attempts to retaliate by shooting snowballs back at them. He inadvertently hits a bear, who responds by slowly removing Ed's goggles and punching him hard enough to knock all of his teeth out.

* Berserkers. Norse warriors who, among other rituals, went into battle wearing bearskins. The Norse were scary enough, but God help you if you were attacked by a berserker. The name even MEANS "bear-shirt wearer".

If a bear's scary, one would imagine a person who you assumed killed a bear to get its hide would be a tough customer...

** Teddiursa is a small teddy bear. However, when it evolves at Level 30, it becomes the dangerous Ursaring. Ursaring is a MightyGlacier that hits and moves like a truck. Weighing in at a base attack stat of 130, it is a beast to be reckoned with and its decent physical movepool is enough to back it up.
** Cubchoo, like Teddiursa averts this trope, as it's a polar bear cub with a giant SnotBubble. Its evo, Beartic, however, resembles a huge polar bear with icicles over its mouth, it has the Snow Cloak Ability, meaning it ''benefits'' from Hail condition, which are debilitating to most Pokémon. It can even learn [[OneTurnKill Sheer Cold.]]
** [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Gen VI]] introduces Pancham and its evolution Pangoro, fighting/dark-type pandas. Pangoro is not that bad of a {{Mon}} however, because underneath its gruff and mean exterior lies a noble heart that hates bullying. Still, it's stupid to piss one off.
** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' has Stufful and Bewear. Stuffle looks like a red panda plsuhie and Bewear looks like a cuddly bear doll. Both pokemon have extremely powerful limbs that can send boxers flying (in the case of Stuffle), or in the case of Bewear, effortlessly crush spines like dry twigs even when all they want to do is give a friendly hug. They have the reputation as being one of the most dangerous Pokémon in Alola. Just to top it off, [[spoiler:it's also Lusamine's trump card in every battle with her]].

* Played with by Literature/PaddingtonBear, who is on the whole a very polite, friendly, courteous and helpful sort of bear. However, having recently made his way to London from Darkest Peru, his lack of understanding of both human and English cultural mores can result in him causing plenty of trouble for the people around him unintentionally.
