* Purely on the visual side, in 2009 a German zoo made news for its bears all getting an affliction where they lost almost all their fur. Usually furry animals end up looking silly when you remove all the hair. Bears, on the other hand, look like [[http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/11/04/article-1225042-0711FC57000005DC-753_634x693.jpg some terrifying fantasy monster]].

* ''Series/TheMuppetShow''; in one skit, the Swedish Chef is cooking at a campsite, and is annoyed by a group of squirrels. Eventually, he gets angry and chases them offstage with a cleaver. A few seconds later, a bear - who has the cleaver - chases ''him'' back onstage and offstage in the other direction, with the squirrels laughing their heads off.

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter''. The bear-like Arzorus certainly looks intimidating with its blood-red claws and armored paws but it is nothing compared to the many, much stronger monsters you will face. In fact a cutscene shows an Arzorus ''running in fear'' when a [[ShockAndAwe Zin]][[CanisMajor ogre]] draws near it. Any high-tier quest pitting you against them will generally have you fight two at once because only one would be too easy.

** Played straight in ''Monster Hunter Generations'' with the Redhelm Arzuros. Its tough hide and tremendous strength tears down any hunter who expects an easy fight.
