RudyardKipling has a poem "The Truce of the Bear" in which a blind Indian beggar explains to hunters why they should not pay attention when they have a bear cornered and it stands on its hind legs and seems to beg for mercy. The flesh of his face is withered "like slag in the furnace" because of a blow from "Adam-zad, the Bear that walks like a Man".

** In the ''Sun and Moon'' series, Team Rocket manages to befriend a wild Bewear. A huge bear that resembles a costume mascot. Well, "Befriend" isn't the correct term as it seems to be [[MamaBear overprotective of them]], [[AndCallHimGeorge to the point of being too overprotective]].

** The Russian word ''medved'' (honey-eater), is a (Proto-Slavic--compare Polish ''niedźwiedź'', Czech ''medvěd'', Croatian ''medvjed'') euphemism for the now-lost original word for "bear", but ''medved'' itself became taboo in the medieval period. Instead of naming the animal directly, people would refer to it with nicknames, either endearingly-pejorative ("the hairy one", "the clumsy one") or respectful ("the master"); a common practice was to give it a similar-sounding human name ("Mikhail [[UsefulNotes/{{Patronymic}} Potapych]]", "Misha"), a practice which also became popular in UsefulNotes/{{Romania}}n language (the bear was called ''Moş Martin'' - "Old Uncle Martin"). In Polish, shortened form ''miś'' was used.

** The Russian word ''medved'' (honey-eater), is a (Proto-Slavic--compare Polish ''niedźwiedź'', Czech ''medvěd'', Croatian ''medvjed'') ''medvjed'', even the not Slavic but geographically close to Croatian, Polish, Czech, Slovak and Russian Hungarian ''medve'') euphemism for the now-lost original word for "bear", but ''medved'' itself became taboo in the medieval period. Instead of naming the animal directly, people would refer to it with nicknames, either endearingly-pejorative ("the hairy one", "the clumsy one") or respectful ("the master"); a common practice was to give it a similar-sounding human name ("Mikhail [[UsefulNotes/{{Patronymic}} Potapych]]", "Misha"), a practice which also became popular in UsefulNotes/{{Romania}}n language (the bear was called ''Moş Martin'' - "Old Uncle Martin"). In Polish, shortened form ''miś'' was used. Among the Szeklers, Hungarians living in the Carpathian Mountains, in what is now Romania, the corresponding nickname would be "Mackó úr", which more or less amounts to "Mr. Teddy". Keep in mind though, that they have a good reason to use the nicknames, as the nicknames are all from areas where bears still very much roam free and ''can and will'' pop up.
