* In ''Fanfic/TheParselmouthOfGryffindor'', there are several low-key examples, with Hermione and Co. befriending a fifty-foot killing-gazed centuries-old Basilisk, and later a Boggart (a magical shapeshifter who takes the form of whatever its victim fears the most).

* Literature/TheBible:
** One good look at God kills you stone dead because no evil, no matter how small, can exist in His presence. One of the basic tenets of the religion is to have a [[PalsWithJesus personal, one-on-one relationship with Him]], and this is the basis of prayers; it's meant to be this trope exactly. In fact, Jesus was AFormYouAreComfortableWith[=/=]HeroicSacrifice so this could happen. It's also generally agreed God's got a great sense of humor.
** [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Angels are said to look terrifying]]: vaguely humanoid creatures with four heads, hooved feet and six wings (the [[WingedHumanoid classic "angel" picture]] was an [[ArtisticLicense symbolic liberty]]). They're OK chaps that spend the first few minutes trying to calm down the mortal they appear to (they invariably introduce themselves with something on the lines of "Fear not").



* Ananta Shesha (sometimes called [[IHaveManyNames Aadi 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.

* In ''Literature/ParadiseLost'', [[UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}} The Son of God]] spends the first part of the poem loving his Father, sacrificing himself for humanity's happiness, and all around being incredibly kind. That is, until the Father charges Him with ending the War in Heaven. The Son then turns into an unwatchable terror "Gloomie as Night" and gives a glare with the strength of ten thousand lightning bolt that strikes plagues into the soul of every rebellious angel. With this one second, he ravaged the demonic army more than all the angels in Heaven did in two whole days. The Devil's army is so horrified that they throw themselves into Hell rather than wait for Christ to be done with them.
-->''"Yet half his strength he put not forth, but check'd\\
His Thunder in mid Volie, for he meant\\
Not to destroy, but root them out of Heav'n."''

* ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld,'' which often features the player unexpectedly blundering into eldritch and disturbing entities that turn out to be friendly questgivers.
** London's Darkside Market is filled with unearthly beings peacefully doing business with humans, including Blajini, Fauns, and Vampires. There's even a ghoul running a taco stand!
** Visiting Egypt gives players a chance to meet with Säid, an ancient Egyptian mummy now operating as a modern businessman. Not only is he the only mummy in the game that isn't out to kill you, but in the intro to his first mission, he allows you a minute to get a good look under his NiceHat and take in his horribly desiccated appearance... before taking a picture of you with his phone!
** In the Transylvanian village of Harbaburesti, players can find the stag-headed and decidedly eldritch Forest God getting drunk at the local tavern and writing romantic poetry about the barmaid.
** Not too far away, the ancient vampire [[RetiredMonster Hasdatean]] has sought sanctuary at the local church, and spends his days [[SnarkToSnarkCombat exchanging witticisms]] [[VitriolicBestBuds with the priest]]. For added fun, said priest also has to occasionally admonish him for putting his feet on the pews.
** Dragon-allied players are told throughout the game that they are not to speak to [[DarkMessiah the Child]], and are to receive their orders only through intermediaries. However, in the aftermath of "Mainframe," players suddenly find themselves unexpectedly alone in the temple with the Child, who beckons the players over and shakes their hand. Small wonder that the temple staff end up bowing to players as they depart.
** The mission to Tokyo brings players face to face with Inbeda, a monstrous {{Oni}} mercenary with a reputation for killing everyone from mob bosses to emperors as far back as the Edo period. For good measure, he was banished ''from Hell.'' And when you meet him... he's lounging around a bathhouse, dressed in a tiger-print bathrobe and fluffy slippers. On top of casually mentioning his love of Reality TV and ''Series/CSIMiami'' at various points throughout his mission intros, he also spends his first meeting [[DirtyOldMan trying to sweet-talk players into getting naked and going for a swim]].
** After their many encounters with [[TheVirus the Filth]] throughout the game, players are very surprised when it suddenly develops a voice in Tokyo and starts trying to chat with them. [[TomTheDarkLord It calls itself John]]. It's... [[AffablyEvil weirdly friendly]]. [[spoiler: It's later revealed that he's actually a cultist suicide-bomber who managed to transcend physical existence through exposure to [[FantasticNuke the Filth-bomb]], and is now serving as the voice of [[EldritchAbomination the Dreamers]].]] Also, he appears to be having regular online chats with [[PlayfulHacker Harumi]].

* The sukiyaki party with the Friday Fellows in ''Literature/UchoutenKazoku'' has shades of this but really every and any tense conversation with [[HumansAreCthulhu Benten]] feels like this trope.

* 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]]

* Happens in a [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecraft]] story: Randolph Carter, hero of "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath", gets to have a chat with Nyarlathotep in person. It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that, even though the Crawling Chaos is [[FauxAffablyEvil outwardly friendly]], he hardly has Carter's best interests in mind. In "Through The Gates of the Silver Key", it's Yog-Sothoth.
