* Ananta Shesha, lord of all nagas, according to the [[Myth/HinduMythology Bhagavata Purana]], is a gigantic serpent with a thousand heads. So huge that it can hold all the planets in its hoods. Not only can it spew venom, but it also breathes fire. It's also one of the few beings that will remain after [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the destruction of the universe]]. While that sounds like a fearsome EldritchAbomination, Shesha is a good deity. It prefers to sing and praise the glories of Vishnu, who sleeps on its back, rather than cause destruction with its venom and fire breath. Many Hindu gods have forms that look less than [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith comfortable]] and still are helpful to mortals--at least, ones approaching them properly. Kali once saw a toddler lying on a wasteland she just made... picked up and began to breast-feed him. Yes, right in that form, usually depicted with some blood dripping from the tongue stuck out between fangs.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is built around the concept of befriending things you'd normally destroy in a standard RPG, so this naturally crops up. In fact, [[spoiler:[[FinalBossAsgore]]]] even mentions that he'd like to offer you tea before your climactic battle. Especially notable when you face [[spoiler:Asriel Dreemurr with 6 Human Souls and every Monster's soul.]] He is so immensely powerful that even your Determination becomes unreliable in his presence. He is, for all intents and purposes, a God (of [[LargeHam Hyperdeath]], to be more precise). And then you hug him.

** Inverted with [[spoiler:Sans the Skeleton]]. You '''start''' with the "tea" part, and it's only if you go ahead and [[VillainProtagonist kill absolutely everyone]] that the "Cthulhu" part becomes evident...

** This portrayal of Baba Yaga is [[OlderThanTheyThink older than you might think]], though: there's a fair share of folk tales where she's an ally to the hero, especially when [[OurLichesAreDifferent Koshei the Deathless]] - who, unlike Baba, is '''never''' portrayed with any redeeming qualities - is the BigBad.

Added DiffLines:

* Downplayed in ''Manga/LaughingSalesman''. Moguro is more of a HumanoidAbomination than an EldritchAbomination, but this trope is still in effect since he's [[AffablyEvil genuinely friendly (despite his intentions)]] and he'll often treat clients to a meal or some drinks before offering them his services. Just don't make the mistake of treating ''him'' to drinks. Chances are, [[NeverGetsDrunk he'll drink you under the table]] and then leave you with the bill.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' follows a similar theme to ''Beetlejuice," except that Grim's friendship with Billy and Mandy was not his idea to start with.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' usually fight the giant monsters that try to wreck Townsville, but as seen in the episode "Major Disaster", they're friends with at least one of them.

* There's [[https://pics.me.me/writing-prompt-s-while-putting-your-favorite-condiment-on-a-sandwich-you-16263023.png a story]] circulating around that was spawned by the writing prompt "While putting your favorite condiment on a sandwich, you accidentally make a magical occult symbol and summon a demon." The hapless summoner simply makes the demon a sandwich too, and he gets a desired promotion the next day. Demons still pop in for lunch every so often after that.[[/folder]]

* Fairy tales from several different cultures all seem to include one myth in which a horrible baby-eating hag, Death itself, or some similar beast either adopts a foundling or takes a mentor role, and generally proves benevolent to the child.

* In "Literature/GodfatherDeath", a poor man meets Death and gains him as a godfather for his child. Death attends the baptism and later teaches his godson everything he needs to know to become a great physician. Only when the godson double-crosses Death repeatedly and against Death's earnest warnings to do so, Death becomes angry and takes his godson's life.
