* The OlderThanSteam TropeNamer is Antigonus from Creator/WilliamShakespeare's ''Theatre/TheWintersTale''. Though not truly the villain, he is dispatched in this manner. (And unlike most of the other examples on this page, the bear [[DeusExMachina literally comes out of]] ''[[DeusExMachina nowhere]]'' just for this scene.)[[note]]A side note: there was a popular bear-baiting ring right next to the Globe theater where Shakespeare worked, so it's possible that he (or his producer) randomly decided to borrow a bear for a crowd-pleasing cameo. (Though one can imagine the villain might not have been the only individual pursued by a bear in that event.)[[/note]]

** In one of the ''USAcres'' segments, Wade is constantly trying to not participate in the variety show the other characters had set up, since he has to work with "Fido". After Orson's brothers crash the show and start torturing Orson, Wade insults them and has to run for his life... until he takes them backstage so they can see just who "Fido" is: [[spoiler: an angry bull who proceeds to chase them away]].

Though it doesn't have to be a bear, these BearsAreBadNews. If it's another creature rather than an outright villain that gets chased away by the bear, it's because there's AlwaysABiggerFish. If the heroes called the bear here themselves, then it's SummonBiggerFish. If it was the villain's own mistreated pet doing the mauling, that's a case of TheDogBitesBack. The hapless character may also simply take a fall into the SharkPool or the SnakePit.

* DoctorDoom once got assaulted by his own attack dogs, because he got in the way of a fox and them, long long long story, because Doom was fighting a [[{{Expy}} Batman]] analogue he'd lost part of his armor, [[DisneyVillainDeath so he instead fell off a cliff.]]

* As stated above, General Woundwort at the climax of ''WatershipDown'', though it was less "exit pursued by a dog" than "exit preparing to go down fighting while [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere his minions run like hell]]".

* The JudgeDee story ''The Haunted Monastery'' ends like this, [[BearsAreBadNews involving an actual bear]]. After the man behind several murders of women affably points out that he is untouchable due to the lack of evidence and his connections in the Imperial Court, Dee agrees with his assessment, then lures him into a courtyard being used to exercise a savage bear owned by a visiting theatre troupe, that can only be controlled by his master. Dee says he will leave the villain's fate in the hands of Heaven. If the bear's owner hears his screams and comes in time to rescue him...well, he doesn't.
