* In ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', animals tend to be wary of [[BigBad Aku]], who is a [[EldritchAbomination giant demonic entity]]. Which is justified because Aku is [[UltimateEvil the most dangerous villain in the universe]], and is justly well-feared by ''everyone'' who knows of him.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'':
** In "Jack and the Warrior Woman", a small rodent accepts food from Jack, but it hisses and runs away from his traveling companion [[DarkActionGirl Ikra]] (who later turns out to be [[BigBad Aku]] [[VoluntaryShapeshifting in disguise]]).
** In "The Aku Infection", a dog freaks out and starts barking at Jack, even though he's usually a [[FriendToAllLivingThings friend to animals]], because he's been [[TheVirus infected with a]] [[TheCorruption piece of Aku]].
** Oddly averted in "The Tale of X-49", when [[ItMakesSenseInContext Aku kidnaps a dog named Lulu from her owner, a robot named X-49]]. Lulu is [[PerpetualSmiler still smiling]] and isn't afraid of the evil demon lord who's taken her hostage.

* In [[Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines Reset Bloodline's Luana side story]], her Pokemon were shown scowling at the man who would be Travis's father (and the father of ''a lot'' of others, up to and including [[spoiler: Ash Ketchum]]) the moment he appeared. Given this very same man was shown in the later holiday special 2017 to be a Sociopath, they were right to distrust him.

** Misty's Psyduck is also this, quickly picking up that a trainer they casually ran into was up to no good with Misty (heavily impled to be a Date-Rapist), and punches him out before he can do anything to her.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'', Amaterasu is a goddess taking the form of a white wolf. She's often seen preemptively reacting to threats before they appear onscreen. While [[FairyCompanion Issun]] can usually also feel when a particular place has a bad vibe, there is one particular scene where this trope is played straightest: [[spoiler:when Amaterasu comes across a dead Queen Himiko and finds Rao also present and claiming to have witnessed the queen being attacked by a demon, Ammy ''immediately'' realizes that Rao is not who she says she is and attacks her. Issun thinks Ammy has gone crazy until "Rao" lets out an EvilLaugh.]]

* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', the BigBad starting to move around usually coincides with every dog in Central going insane. Not only can animals sense the homonculi and [[spoiler:living Philosopher's Stones]], but even the gentle dog Den reacted viciously to one to show the inherent ''wrongness'' of what they are. Not only that, when the BigBad exerts his power enough, he can make ''every single animal in the city'' go crazy and bark at the earth, not just the dogs. The BigBad himself makes animals too afraid to even approach his lair.

* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' series, one of the only creatures capable of seeing Death when he's not trying to be visible are cats. Strangely, Death actually ''likes'' cats, and in fact one of the things he hates most of all are people who mistreat cats.

* The muntjac, a small deer-like animal from Southeast Asia, makes some characteristic "barkings" to alert other members of its species when they know that a tiger is near. Many animals of other species (and people are not an exception) have learned the meaning of this barking and become wary when they hear it. Keep in mind that muntjacs are quite small and have a talent for camouflage, so they can save your life without you ever seeing them.
** Similarly, in Africa most animals have learned to keep one eye on the giraffes. If the giraffes start running it's because they've seen something worth running from, like a lion. Ostriches take on a similar role in areas where they are present but giraffes are not.
