Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/SpiritStallionOfTheCimarron'' has a mountain lion that downplays this trope. It's rather vicious in that it chases and tries pouncing on a foal before [[BigDamnHeroes Spirit leaps in]] and even scratches at Spirit while jumping him from behind, but it's also a predator looking for a bite to eat.

Domestic dogs are rarely portrayed as evil unless the cast specifically only features dogs and antagonists are needed. A negative portrayal of dogs is usually light, treating them as [[DogsAreDumb simply dumb]] and servile (and fiercely territorial); the tropes of the [[AngryGuardDog evil tear-'em-to-pieces junkyard dog]] and the {{Hellhound}} being the obvious exceptions. When they are genuinely annoying, this characteristic is given to [[MisterMuffykins stereotypical small yappy breeds]] that reflect their owners. In real life, it says more about a dog's training.

* In ''[[WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven All Dogs Go to Heaven 2]]'', {{Satan}} himself is an evil, anthropomorphic cat named Red. The theological implications for cats are probably better unspoken.

* Tybalt in ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' is nicknamed "prince [or king] of cats" by Mercutio, [[spoiler:whom he eventually kills]]. Much depends upon [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation interpretation]], though; some productions play him as one more victim of the FeudingFamilies.

* In the 1990’s, there was a series of ads for Kelloggs Smacks that pitted Dig’em Frog against a mean housecat named Kitty in a series of TomAndJerry like chases. The frog ALWAYS got the best of the cat in these commercials.

* Clan Smoke Jaguar in ''TabletopGame/Battletech'' played this trope very well. Of all the Clans, they were the meanest and most aggressive. They never allowed freeborn warriors into their ranks, [[KillEmAll seldom took prisoners]], and frequently [[MoralEventHorizon responded]] to insurgencies against their iron-fisted rule on the planets they captured by [[DisproportionateRetribution massacring entire cities]]. This attitude ended up backfiring on them badly, however. When the Inner Sphere decided to show that they were a force to be reckoned with, they did so by targeting the Smoke Jaguars for destruction. With no allies due to decades of bullying the other Clans and an industrial base that wasn't capable of sustaining the losses they'd taken during the invasion of the Inner Sphere, the Smoke Jaguars were completely helpless against the onslaught and wiped out completely.
