** 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]].

** There's also the Ob'enn race, who prove that even being a small and fuzzy koala-like bear doesn't get in the way of being a menace. Being sociopathic xenophobes with huge battleships goes a long way towards the goal.

* There's a ''reason'' the expression "loaded for bear" means "carrying the biggest gun you can get your hands on." In the muzzle-loading days, it meant cramming in extra powder. It takes quite a lot to put a bear down and there's a lot of TakingYouWithMe potential if you don't get it right. A party of Eastern European hunters once cornered a large male brown bear -- after they shot it twice with a [[{{BFG}} 9.3x74mm double rifle]], the bruin did not show the least desire to die, but charged them furiously, prompting the leader to perform the quickest reload of both barrels in his lifetime and shoot again, [[OhCrap only to see this did not even stop the furious bear, let alone kill it]]. The entire party ran away like madmen, and when they could scrounge enough guts to go back, they found the bear dead: [[MadeOfIron allfour4 expanding rounds had hit, one of them almost cut down a hind leg, yet the bear survived long enough to charge them]].
