* True crime author Ann Rule's dog always snarled and growled at her friend Ted Bundy and shied away whenever he tried to pet him, despite usually being friendly to everyone. Little did Ann know her friend was a serial killer spending his nights prowling college campuses for victims. Similarly, the cat belonging to the sorority house where he went on of his final rampages apparently ran away the night of his attack. In an interview with one of the surviving victims, she speculated that the cat must have sensed the impending threat.
** Likewise, the neighbor of Josef Fritzl (the Austrian man who kept his daughter locked in the basement for years and fathered incestuous children with her) insists that his usually-friendly dog absolutely hated him.

* Two instances of this happen in ''Film/{{Tremors}}'', first with a farmer's flock of sheep, and second with a pair of horses the protagonists happen to be riding on even though there isn't any danger visible. [[GenreBlind The farmer doesn't realize until it's too late that something's wrong]], but one of the protagonists figures out the horses "got wind of something they don't like". Sure enough, it's a reliable sign that the movie's SandWorm monsters are about to attack.

* The SerialKiller Vigilante archetype in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' has an ability, ''Charming,'' which functions as a mundane effect equivalent to a charm hex to avoid suspicion in people - but not animals. A knight or inquisitor may be fooled by the vigilante's cool nature, but her horse won't be.

* While not technically "evil" he's detecting, but [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oscar_%28therapy_cat%29 Oscar]], a cat at Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Providence, Rhode Island, is known for napping beside terminally ill patients hours before they pass away. One theory is he has learned to detect the smell of biochemicals released by dying cells.

*** Ace can also detect mysterious phenomena. In an episode, Terry is asked for help by a young girl with psychic powers. When talking with Bruce about this, Terry manages to see the girl though (although no one else can, since she is using her powers). However, Ace becomes alert and defensive, being able to detect the girl's psychic presence (even though she's not really there and only Terry can see her.) She is not evil at all though.
